Hi everyone,

Does anyone know approximately how much a BMW dealership would cost? Of course, excluding the land, and other costs; just the name (franchise...) Are there any special requirements for someone that would like to get one?

Thanks

At "least" that.....you would probably need to mulitply that "one" times something.....and I don't mean 1.....or 0.

It's not that easy... you can't just call BMW and tell them you'd like a franchise! You either have to get approved to buy an existing franchise (and find a willing seller) or wait for the rare occasion when BMW decides that they need more coverage in a certain market.

Thanks for the numbers and other information. I'm don't want to get one, of course; I was just interested in knowing. Thanks.

That seems like a lot of work just to be able to get BMW's at cost. I think I can convince BMW they need better coverage in my area, as I can only drive 7 miles in three directions and come to a BMW dealer. There needs to be one to the north too, just in case I get lost.
