For a dealer, Fred Beans has an excellent reputation. That`s a good starting point.

Thanks Bob. Unfortunately that is surprising to hear about a dealer.

I noticed the brake light is on in the pic of the stereo and a/c unit and they went out of their way not to show the dash lights with the gauges or odometer. Also it appears there is condensation on the inside of the windows in a couple of the pictures. Despite my picking of nits, the price is reasonable.

I am 5 mins from Fred Beans. They do have a decent reputation. Expensive, but forthright.

Mein Auto: 08 535xit
I bought an 09 F150 Lariat and 04 GMC Denali from Fred Beans Ford.

I bought my 08 535xit from Fred Beans Dodge.

All three experiences were excellent and I believe priced very well. However, don't expect them to move much from their internet price. If you are trading in, their trade values are slightly below average. They are one of my favorite dealers. They have a 3 day money back return policy as well as a longer exchange policy. Keep in mind they don't have a BMW dealership and they know very little about BMWs. In some cases, such as my 535xit, this led to an excellent deal as they didn't even know it was CPO. Thompson BMW is very close to the Fred Beans location, if you are concerned I would bring it to Thompson for a PPI.
