"What do you drive?"
"I drive a 3 series BMW"
"Which 3 series?"
"What do you mean?"
"well, do you drive a: sedan, wagon/touring, coupe, convertible, gran coupe, or gt?"

That is 6 models under the same designation. It is just too many. They have a choice to make, but I do not think that they know which is best yet.
Well, the example with the porsche guy is worse:

- Hey what do you drive?
- Oh I have a Porsche 911
- Which one?
- What do you mean?
- Is it, C2, C2S, C4, C4S, Turbo, Turbo S, Turbo Cabriolet, Turbo S Cabriolet, GT3, GT3RS, GT3 RS 4.0, GT2 RS, Targe, Targa S, Targa 4S, Cabriolet, Cabriolet S, Cabriolet 4, Cabriolet 4S, GTS, GTS 4, GTS Cabriolet, GTS 4 Cabriolet, Black Edition, Black Edition Cabriolet, or Speedster?
