I thought that was odd/cheap as well. Maybe it is some tax loop hole in Germany though. Could save the winner coming up with several thousand Euros or it could just be BMW trying to get some press and save a few thousand Euros.

how do they count?
because when i was there i went outside to take some pictures and went inside again.
went to the parking lot and back in the shop...
I think there's a lot of fault countings...
but I wish the people the best who ever won this price!

Entirely possible. IIRC the people who were given a Mercedes Benz at Oprah's show ended up having to pay several thousand dollars in tax on it or give up the car. So a "long term loaner vehicle" for free may have been the much better way to ensure goodwill. Plus, it's entirely likely that with a year of free X1 use, if they don't already own a BMW they may sell their other car and buy one if they get used to it / like it a lot.

Wow.. reminder - buy more pampers (diapers) for certain bimmerfest peeps
Dude, they make a gazillion cars a year. They can't give up one? Having another car is a liability to many folks, too. It's not always beneficial.
