I wouldnt take a BMW even if they gave it to me. What a lemon of a car. Stay away from BMW. I have had a 2002 330ci for 6 years now and every year I find myself spending thousands on a repair. What a crapy car. Im waiting for my pink slip so I can put it up for sale. Im sure someone will buy it. There's an sucker born every minute right? lol

I have lottery scams representing falsely a company with good reputation. I once received an email from Toyota UK claiming I won their lottery and asking for my contact information. I emailed the Toyota Company in UK inquiring about this matter and attaching the email letter I received. They told me, they don't have any contest about winning a a Toyota car and that I should neglect the email for it might only be used "Phishing". Please be careful too.
