    Clearly BMW is trying to cash in on the death of David Oliveras on the NBC web site with an add to “come experience all the X3 the differences” just above the paragraph that says “…he was hit by the vehicle, a BMW SUV.”  Pretty sicking if you ask me.  No corporate shame here from BMW or NBC.  Note that NBC cycles more than one add in that spot. I go the BMW add the first time went to the page.  If you hit refresh you will get to it.
