I'm much too honest and open to be a salesman.

I've been slowly working on it. Would be nice to have a mentor.

Charisma, good tactics, reading people, etc... Good salespeople are impressive to watch and listen to.

Good point, for all this money being tossed around, why is frank not saving up for his own house?

Frank, what was wrong with the M3? 7k worth of work does not sound appealing. Yea, it's a great color, but don't let it cloud your judgement.

If we got 4 people or more from NGC to join in, so that we could get the discounted $40 per person, I'd probably join.

It's really just all the standard BMW wear items, mixed in with Turner's probably $150/hour service rate.
