Big thanks to Adrian at South Atlanta BMW. Extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Will be recommending him to anyone I know.

Congrats on the car. I too am in St. Louis. Any reason you didn't use one of the local dealers? I have used Autohaus for my last ED. I'm aware of Adrian's excellent reputation. Thanks.

You are clearly a gentleman of impeccable taste and discerning style. Except for that t-short. And maybe the sneakers. The car color, though...

Ended up down in Monaco and went up to Col de Turini.

Probably one of the best parts of the trip was driving up to Col de Turini and having lunch by ourselves at a small little B&B that only opened up to serve us some Quiche

I spoke with both the AutoHaus and Plaza here in St. Louis. I'm in Clayton so both are poised right within a few minutes of me.

Autohaus was excellent and if I didn't buy out of state I would have gone through them. Plaza would not let me test drive a M series car and that kinda took them out of the running.

The problem with local was two fold. A) Euro Delivery knowledge B) E92 M3 dealer allocations.

A) Originally I had planned to do a Euro Delivery with PCD and wanted it to go very smoothly. After doing some research a short list popped up regarding ED + PCD knowledge and Adrian's name was on it. The PCD portion fell through (due to scheduling on my end) but Adrian's vast knowledge with ED and customer care kept me with him.

In addition (B) e92 M3 allocations are very difficult to come by. Adrian was able to get one for me while Autohaus was 'working' on it.

Edit* plus I get to pick my car up in Atlanta which is near the Tail of the Dragon and is home of the world famous FO's from The Varsity.

Thanks so much for the response. I understand your rationale. This will be my second ED with Autohaus and luckily they do have a very knowledgeble CA who is German and really understands ED. Thanks again.

Perhaps I just didn't speak with the right CA. Could you send me the CA's name you're referring too? All local services I plan to have done through AutoHaus so it'd be nice to get to know another knowledgeable and friendly CA.
