It may be class, it may be stupidity or too much money but I think I know is that it will take lots of security and extra money to keep the said in-law in the BMW for a considerable amount of time.— Olutoye francesc (@Agent_Holmes) June 10, 2018
Hope there is a coffin in the car else in-law may eventually go Solo.
