Perception is everything and a luxury image only adds icing to this sweet, sweet cake. Boutique vs. store, Tiffany's vs. Zales, BMW store vs. dealership, BMW vs. Chevy, I can go on and on. Hell, here's one more... Any other big store vs. Wal-Mart. If this theory is working for Apple, why not BMW?

I can't imagine there will be traditional dealership salespeople, and the process for potential clients will probably be seamless and will also cater to (realistic) clients.

Give me a break. That's way too "shi-shi" for my taste.

What's next? A model runway down the middle?

C'mon everyone... grab your cosmo and let's go the BMW Store!

I was there on vacation during the night of the grand opening. However, they did not let me in since I was not a VIP. I guess being a loyal customer and owning a total of four BMWs in my life does not qualify me to be a VIP!?!? So mad that I did not get a chance to go in because I had to fly out the next morning. At least I got some pics of those funky dressed models ... I'll post pics when I get the chance.

This is bling bling and the cost of all this is added to the car price that potential buyers will pay.

What the hell is the big deal? It's a glorified car dealer ship...and it looks like it's from the 70's.

Beautiful showroom but IMO it's completely unnecessary and overdone. If they were selling Paganis or Bugattis it makes sense, but BMWs???
