Looking for an honest no bs dealer

I'm in the market for a new 2015/16 328i wagon. So far I have interacted with four different dealers and every single one left me frustrated. One told me he would be able to sell for $1k over ED...

Yes and due to this 'feature' a new battery will run you $450. They don't call them stealerships for nothing.

I would say it depends on what is covered. If the extended warranty covers the roof mechanism I'd say go for it. $8400 isn't going to be enough if your roof malfunctions. Given BMW's experience with...

I got the alarm. Works well. Esp when I forget about it, lock the car with the top down, then grab something from the inside of the car. Other than that no trouble.
