Steve Marsh really liked BMWs, so when he died this year his family decided to give him the ultimate memorial in the form of a BMW tombstone. Mr. Marsh's remains rest in London's Manor Park cemetery under a solid granite replica of a BMW M3 convertible (Mr. Marsh's car of choice in life).
Designed in England but carved in China, the BMW tombstone cost the family about $75,000--about the same price as an actual M3 in England. The BMW tombstone has caused a little controversy and has even garnered a "joke" parking ticket.
