The buyer pays BAT 5% of the total sale of the car on top of the purchase price.
It’s capped at 5k though, so this doesn’t make them any more than a 100k car.

Sounds like they really liked the M2, potentially with some reservations about M-DCT (duh). Looking forward to the first M2C reviews.

They aren't at all catching up. 2 years ago an incredible e30 was 50k while an e36 of the same quality was 15k.
Now that e36 is 30k and the e30 is 80k.
They are just both going up because new cars...

May have just been the GT. Even then I think it was an option to add and not standard.
