Mein Auto: 550i
New Purchase--Nalley Atlanta

Over the past couple of weeks, I spent a lot of time looking for a BMW 535i around the Southeast. I was not real happy with most of the dealers I spoke with but eventually got in touch with the folks at Nalley. I had been given quotes for a one pay 36 month lease (please no comments on the merits or lack thereof on a one pay lease--I had my reasons) on a 535i from at least 5 dealers. The last dealer I checked with was Nalley. They beat the pants off everyone else. Did all my correspondence by email. Last night I went in to close the deal--when I went to test drive the car I noted it had the aluminum looking trim inside. I thought it was wood--guess I did not look closely enough at the online pics. Not to offend anyone, but I hate the aluminum so I said I was not going to buy the car. They were obviously disappointed. I took a quick look around the lot--saw a beautiful lightly optioned Graphite 550i. What the heck--I asked them to run the numbers for me. Much to my surprise, the 550i came in lower than the all other dealers on the the 535's. I sealed the lease deal and brought it home last night.

Just wanted to say kudos to Felicia, Chris and Richi. If you are buying a new BMW from anywhere in the southeast, you must call these guys before making a final decision.

Love my new car.

Congrats on the 550i!

BTW, I'm not a fan of the aluminum trim either, but I know others like it over the wood.

Not a good experience with Nalley, charged for a top off of oil on a new 7 series. Pretty lame. Glad you liked them and congrats on your car.

It is Dark Graphite with the Oyster/Black interior. I was really looking for a black/black combo but could not find one at the right price. I could not pass up the deal they gave me so I grabbed it even though it was not my first pick. Very excited about the purchase!

I will post a few pics in the next day or two after the next rain washes through ATL.
