It's not about ego...I'm far more embarrassed to drive the X3 loaner my dealer gives me than an economy rental.

They told me that they had 3 series but they were for 7 series owners. Two years ago Silver star Mercedes was giving early 2000's Sebrings as loaner cars to customers.
Sorry for the getting OT but my rant was about some idiots saying it's a Nissan or complaining about the interior or service.
I do understand your point and maybe our dealers work diffently up here. Hopefully you're not getting billed at $125-135 per hour for service. If you are they can certainly afford to rent a slightly better car for say $50 per day and still come out way ahead.
To your bolded point, agreed.
There is not a better bang for the buck available. Don't give a shite about the badge on the hood. The interior is more than acceptable for a car like this. Service is the one debatable point...but that, for most, is offset by the lights out performance.
