Angry BMW HK Official website Domain

I can't believe this!! I was trying to login to BMW HK Official website, and to my surprise, got the following message
"bmwhk.com expired on 01/20/2009 and is pending renewal or deletion."

This is sad, I can't believe the IT/Marketing people (or whomever it is) have missed such a thing. not to mention, that in many cases BMWHK.com is not updated

Wouldn't most of the potential clients search the web before putting a purchase on a car?

This represents this local dealer picked a miserable web hoster. In case you do not know yet, the website was hacked last year.

Well the message. if correct, does not signal a poor service domain host..
I emailed BMWHK to fix...

If you look at BMW UK or USA, the site is much more interactive, informational and pleasant to browse..

haha, you have reminded them and now the registration is extended to 20 Jan 2010... let's do your reminder again in one year time.

I would agreed this is BMWHK marketing for the blame on the boring content, the hosting company is still to be whipped for this overlooking (unless you are from them ). The domain registration and management should be covered in their outsourcing contract.
