On the plus side, there is a BMW dealer at that address.   Why this guy has a 202 area code (DC) and a Los Angeles address is a mystery,  And in places this is the UNITED STATE OF AMERICA?  "THE DIRECTOR PROMOTIONS" seems missing a preposition.  I certainly would not turn down this nice car.  And what personal information will I need to supply?  Social Security Number, mother's maiden name, credit card numbers>
