We both said unfortunate things in an email exchange that followed. He suggested that he would not process the papers on the Cayenne, I would not get any title that I was an exporter, and he knew it because the trucker had shown him the car letter. I told him that he had already committed an offence that may or may not have been true since I did. He asked me to come back to the Cayenne immediately, without miles on it. I asked him if he did not know the dangers of redeploying a kilometre meter. Had he not seen Ferris Bueller`s day? We both threatened to throw the other in jail. The southern prisons, well, the southern prisons, we both knew I`d catch up with my old friends, but he could find out exactly what would happen if the rabbit had the gun. "This practice is a serious violation of the BMW Center agreements," Sengewald wrote. He said authorities are investigating, among other things, "bribes or bribes and potential bribes related to sales by BMW employees." "Center" is the BMW term for a car dealership. BMW, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche - four of the most popular brands of exporters -- punished their U.S. dealers with refunds totalling $30.4 million from 2008 to 2013, intelligence officer Morgan Morgan, who investigated the Ohio case, said at a court hearing in March. Of this amount, $5.6 million was spent on Land Rover.
If you think you have the right to sell a car you own, to whomever you want, you are perfectly correct. They also have the right not to sell them, which is why luxury car dealers - BMW, Jaguar Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche - refuse to sell new cars to known or suspected exporters, and to keep blacklists to prevent such dealers from doing what I just caught. In short, I received a call from the dealer manager. He was furious. He had reason to be. I had signed a document that promised not to export the car and agree to pay $8,500 if I did, a piece of paper that I obviously considered legally binding as a Pinkie juror. But if Porsche catches him in bed with me at this sale, the dealer could be even more penalized or punished in another way, such as reducing the allocation of new vehicles. While I was Lyin and Buyin, there was also the spectre of getting into more serious trouble.
During this period, producers had convinced feed to follow our small industry by accusing straw buyers and exporters of fraud and claiming that they were illegal exports. Secret Service and Homeland Security agents used expiry civilian laws to confiscate cars and freeze bank accounts, sometimes with the help of local law enforcement. As with any police action, it was alarmism; In a non-export agreement that I signed, there was even talk of terrorism and "threats/risks to the United States."
