Ricki is definitely someone you should contact for European Delivery.

Many Festers here have gotten their cars from her (most of the cars in my signature starting 1996 I believe are from her).

i think that was fester "error"
he posted a glowing review of a lease deal he got after he didnt like the deal from difeo... and that deal seems to be going completely pear shaped... no nonsense is now becoming a ca that cant properly calculate a security deposit, seems to have mysterious trade in credits, etc... lots of smoke, lots of mirrors. i'm very curious to see the final outcome....by my calculations, cutting through the weird number games, it looks like the DEAL he got is almost exactly what he got in the first case. I cant say for certain because none of the figures in his second deal make sense (lease tradein credits, sales tax part of cash due at delivery despite being rolled into the payment, wrong security deposit calculated for MSD, etc etc)



in 07 i acquired two cars through Ricki at difeo (now tenafly) via Jspira's initial rec. both were US delivery, one was a very rushed order, needed the car as a Christmas present-- but placed the order last week of nov. both worked out perfectly, no hassles. I can whole heartedly recommend Ricki as a CA. Plan on ordering through her in feb to replace car 1 and again in dec to replace car 2 in 2010. When the rubber meets the road, her prices are competitive, she doesn't play games, etc. but she is on target. she has a very down to business attitude, which may put off some. For me its a plus, I don't have time to play games, in my day job, i'm direct and to the point.

not sure how much of a plus this is, but bmw of tenafly has bmw loaners as well. I've gotten a 530xiT and an X5 4.8i as loaners.
