When buying on the lot:
1. It's a pain sometimes to find the car exactly as you want it
2. It's hard to keep a relationship with your dealer if you jump around when buying cars.
3. Sometimes you want to buy a car at a specific dealership because they're closer (this also goes with #2)
4. That car could have been test driven - you know what the dealer tells us to do on M3 test drives... I don't want to buy that car!
All very valid points you make.
I know my next car will be a ED no question about it, I visited "Die Welt" in München in 2009 (driving a rented VW
the next time I'm there it will be my M3 perhaps the next generation then taking it for a spin in Holland, Germany and Italy before handing it back for home delivery in Canada. Might even be a DCT V6 with twin turbos by then
one never knows does one.
