"We recognize not only these outstanding owners and operators but also their teams who continuously demonstrate the ability to perform in a highly competitive market," said Peter Miles, BMW of North America Executive VP of Operations.

Very surprise Peter Pan BMW made the list. I guess with the number of folks making over $100k in that area way above the national average, hustling them with sweet talk is easy.

I bought a 2012 closeout 335i M-Sport and got it for $1000 below dealer cost ($6,000) off msrp. Maybe I just got lucky.
