You can definitely lose a big client because of VMart.

Magento has lots of great rules that go beyond Buy X get Y Free. There's a video on their site that goes into some detail.

Thanks for the info, Jeff.  

It's unacceptable to have this type of problem in an ecommerce application -- you could lose your business over it!

Unfortunately Virtuemart DOES have serious issues. For one project in particular we ended up spending a ton of hours to fix it.
We've been working with Magento. It's a great product IF (noticed that big IF!) you will basically use the features as-is and just need to reskin it. 
If you need to do some reengineering...be prepared for a steep learning curve and lots of complexity.

I'd consider taking this route:
