tturedraider, I'm sure you see a good side of that dealership, but my experiences have been less than positive. Note that I have purchased FIVE new BMW's since 2004. I'm not exactly a window shopper. I shop to purchase.
On two separate occasions I have attempted to purchase through them, but on both occasions I was not treated as a serious buyer. I felt like the CA thought I was wasting his time both times. I had scheduled appointments and shown up on time for them. I am not a hard negotiator. I am actually a pretty easy sell. My household income is what I would consider well into upper middle class and my credit score as of two weeks ago was approaching 800. Yet, when I walked in with my wife and two kids, the CA acted as if I was just someone there to take a free test drive despite the fact that each time I pulled up in a relatively new BMW. Thanks, but no thanks.
To each his own, I guess, but I'll stay where I am since I am able to buy the car I want at a price that's comfortable for me. My last two were negotiated via email. I only showed up for delivery and to sign the paperwork. I have a great SA who knows who I am when I call or stop by out of the blue and who even tells me things most people wouldn't know about the cars. We even discussed the HPFP issue before I bought my 335.
