OK not to sweat the details too much but you work for BMW Group? Group is the "manufacturer". Even more specifically since this is an M car this must mean you work for BMW M GmbH? If you work for BMW in the UK wouldn't that actually mean you work for BMW UK which is not "the manufacturer" but the distributor, an entirely different company.
If you are going to say where you work, make bold claims and expect folks to believe you I guess we can't really "leave it at that".
