Nice to see our dealership on the list!

Yark in Toledo, Ohio

They have always treated me in a manner that I expect.

Not the least of which is the fact that they just put a new top on the 99///M Rdstr

Jon,

I am skeptical about the selection process. Numerous bimmerfest members have complained bitterly about the poor service and sales experiences at some of the listed BMW Centers. Furthermore, I think that Cutter Motors should have received the award that appears to have been unfairly denied to them last year.

Could there be some bias?

Definitely.

When I ordered my car, I had three requirements that HAD to be met:

1) The car had to be built in Germany. (I know, I know. South Africa plants ranked higher than Germany, but IMO, why would you purchase a German car if it wasn't built in the homeland?)

2) The car had to be available for delivery at a certain time frame, since I was still on the road on business when I ordered it and was only going to be home for a couple of weeks. And the car WAS at the dealership only one week prior to my arrival.

3) No one is to go out on a test drive in it once it arrived at the dealership. My car had less than 9 miles when I sat in it for the first time.

My sales advisor was TOTALLY patient and professional with me from the time I placed my order until I drove away from the dealership. I was treated as though I had bought a 7-series, instead of a 3.

The only service I had done on it so far was after I installed the OEM alarm myself and had to get it activated. My service advisor was thorough and courteous.

Overall, I highly recommend this dealership if any other Floridians are thinking about purchasing their first/next BMW.

Thanks for the compliment, but there is no subjectivity in the
"Center of Excellence" selection process...

If there was, BMWNA would have never selected Cutter...


Those guys in New Jersey hate me...

Does the dealer have any say on this when an order is placed? I was wondering if all Priority 1 orders (cust. ordered cars) come out of Germany.

I'm not sure about this question. There are other knowledgeable people who have worked in dealerships (Jon, Phillipek, Sarafil, to name a few), and I'm sure they know the right answer. You might want to shoot them a quick e-mail.

All I know is, my dealer had NO problems whatsoever in where my car was going to be built.
