here is a funny story that is sure to get a smirk or two:

3 Years ago, I took the M-school and had some good fun. They have the instructors sit with you at lunch to talk about this and that. All great PR for BMW. Lots of talk of how much weight was saved on the M6 with the CF roof.

So, I asked on of the lead guys why they had 3 brand new Z06 Vettes out in the back lot. I wanted to know if they benchmarked the BMW with the Vettes...

His answer got me laughing.

He said (in a low, hushed tone), "No, those are the instructor's personal cars."

LOL! Within a few minutes, I had the table talking Vettes instead of M5/M6s!

Not saying anything is better/worse....but still a "telling" story.
