    Any idea how he made a profit? Bought it cheap and brought over from Germany to sell for more money here?

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    From what I remember from the conversation, he bought it here in the states after he came over bought one, drove it for a short while and sold then bought another and kept doing it.

    I don't think he told me where he bought it from, just somewhere here in the states, probably NY

    Are we discussing Max Hoffman? http://www.nytimes.com/2007/03/18/au...18HOFFMAN.html

    As for Ridgefield BMW, my buying experience there when I grabbed my CPO 330ci was flawless. My family had bought two vehicles there, back when they were REM (Ridgefield European Motors) and sold Mazdas, among other marques.

    They have expanded quite a bit though the years.
