BMW & Toyota?

Yea. So I guess we know who's building the engines to BMW's new mini car.... lol. It still makes me sad though, I hope BMW makes the engines and doesnt outsource it.

BMW AG is close to signing an agreement with Toyota Motor Corp. under which the Japanese firm will supply diesel engines for BMW's new Mini automobile, a BMW spokesman said.
"It's nearly done," BMW spokesman Michael Rebstock said.

Thats a fucking great excuse. You must feel like a jackass now, especially after you told me at lunch time, like it was new news.
i guess this thread just adds to your count of FAILED threads.

BTW: I never would have thought that my 1000th post would have been on one of your threads!

The original MINI one D used the diesel engine from the European market Toyota Yaris, and no it did not affect sales.
