Sure, but I must imagine there is some kind of dialog between the manufacturer and Sportauto before one of these super tests. Actually, I know that there is in one case for a fact. So, if BMW were to feel strongly about what version of the car was to be tested, I bet Sportauto would take that into consideration. I would also bet that BMW most likely had something to do with the car being tested with PSCs.
