1. The Honda, Toyota, Genesis and Mazda (at least) reps at the Seattle Auto Show in Nov 2019 were corporate, NOT from local dealers, and it was their "full-time" job-- going from auto show to auto show for the season. I asked.

2. BMW was in full attendance at the Seattle Auto Show in Nov 2019. That's where I saw the SOM M2C and started to get interested in it and vacillated between that, the X2 and the X4M (all of which were on the floor and able to be sat in, played with, etc.)

That's the truth. Make of it what you will.
