i can't vouch for how accurate this may or may not be, i'm just passing along information shared with me from my dealership.
That's partially wrong, emplyees do get discounts on new vehicles. The 335i when it first came out was available for employee discount purchasing. The M3's, the E46 were offered at discount off the bat. The new E60 M5 and M6 were not offered off the bat, but are now!! the M3 will be the same, I assume within a year the employees will be able to purchase them at employee prices. I know because I work at the dealership
I've already got my eyes on an Alpine white M3 fully loaded
