Ever heard about the 65% rule?
Yeah I know. Let's see what the market will give me.

I've been watching the category for a while and the cars that dip under 25k in this 300HP+ performance class will go rather quickly.

BMW stopped making these straight six 3l engines in the 1 series, so they might even appreciate with time!

But what would I drive when the others are in for their service!

This is an organic collection though, we struggle to get rid of old ones..

Yeah, but that's not a Swiss garage. Those cars aren't black.

hahaha, I was after metallic red but ended up with a black car because of unbeatable price discount. My solace is "at least not white".
