Yeah, and if you blow up a turbo on a Neon or an Evo you're out a few hours of labor and a couple hundred getting it replaced. Maybe $1500 if you order one from the stealer.
I don't see that being the case right now in the BMW world.
The roundel just about guarantees a price premium over other makes and models.
