i think the M exclusive dealership is nothing more than a marketing gimmick to try and get more singaporeans to buy M cars by making it 'exclusive'.

also the M car sales people that i spoke to werent very knowledgeable bout the cars they were selling. considering that there are so few M cars in the line up, you would think they would have memorized all the specs of each vehicle by heart. everyone knows HP figures but when it comes to things like weight, torque, rev limit, etc; no one's got a clue.

unfortunately the owner of the M car dealership has managed to secure a contract to be the exclusive dealer that can sell M cars in singapore. so if you want an M car, you'd have to go there to get it.

on a positive note, one young sales woman did let me test drive an M3 with DCT while i was there, even though i told her that i am based in canada. she was cute and friendly but she knew nothing bout cars. i guess they hire pretty faces.
Well that's just great....Right when I was beginning to believe there was a place on earth full of "M" cars and gorgeous women who lived, ate and breathed "M" cars...

You my friend are the anti-Viagra if there ever was one...
