No, this isn't a joke. Really. Automotive News
reports that BMW
CEO Norbert Reithofer shared this statistic during a call with analysts last week. It is unclear where this information came from within BMW, but it still comes as a staggering surprise that 80 (eighty!
) percent of 1 Series
owners believe that they are living with front-wheel drive.
As we reported earlier, BMW is planning to bring front-wheel-drive vehicles to market
in the near future, and the automaker is worried that it might confuse customers by adding these new products to the rear-drive-only lineup.
We firmly believe that all current 1 Series owners who think their car is front-wheel drive should hand over their keys immediately... to us.[/QUOTE]Source:
