What a fun thread, I think the Flow BMW customer who joined today to tell us the we are lynching Flow BMW was a really nice touch.

To the Flow BMW employees out there, getting into a Internet pissing contest with a customer is not a winning strategy. This thread was starting to die out until you made the incredible mistake issuing a reply.

I hope you are paying attention and know not what to do in the future.

Of course not. What he told him in that private conversation was wrong on so many counts however, that it beggars belief. And that you, a business owner, can't grasp this simple fact, is pretty sad.

Do stupid kids expect businessmen to bend over when they try to sodomize them with a broomstick? Apparently yes. But those kids need a lesson and the guy at Flow did spank the kid very well. Congrats to them.

Are you just pretending to be backwards thinking sort of guy, or do you actually believe what you are typing? I am thinking you are just looking to perpetuate an argument.

just fyi - Saintor is a Canuck, not an American. Maybe that's why his view of this situation seems so skewed from ours.

That would be me. Voted for him in Georgia primary, donated the maximum allowable by law to his campaign, and I will help him win Georgia in November. Have me for supper, BMWBabe. I've got some Flow for ya right here.

Nah, nevermind.

Ya, congrats to the guys who've gotten the long end of the internet broomstick. Why the name calling? Because your arguments don't hold water.

Business ethics is clearly not your strong point. You could probably get a work visa tho if you apply to your heroes at Flow.

Why are you still here Saintor? Don't you know by now your opinion here holds less value than a subway whino? My God some people are just so unbelievably dense.

BMWBabe doesn't appear to take into account that she (or he) herself has just walked into this thread claiming things the SAME way coontie did...except coontie is a trusted person, unlike BMWbabe being on her (or his) first post.

I wonder who put BMWBabe up to posting? In any event, this thread got some more traction. I wonder if it will get to the number 1 position on Google search results.

This thread is awesome.

I've had some experience with Flow BMW too. Since I was in Winston-Salem, went there to test drive a new car and was looking for a good deal. When I was quoted just a few hundered below MSRP, I told them that I would take up the offer that I was getting from the dealer in Charlotte. (few hundred over invoice)

The CA told me that they would beat that offer if I could prove to them that the offer I was getting was legit. I signed on my email from their computer and showed them the email detailing that. The guy even printed that and took it to the GM and made me wait 2 hours before he came back and told me that they had changed their mind and couldn't make a deal after all. Even though my CA was pretty decent, I found the whole sales process weird and strange. Not sure why they made me wait 2 hours before telling me they couldn't do it.

That said, I do like their service dept. I have been to bmw dealerships in various states and their service dept (wifi, water/coffee, food) is one of the best in that respect.

That is flat out BS. I'm amazed you stayed. There's no way I wait more than 20 minutes at a dealer for something like that. It doesn't take two hours to see if they can beat an offer, that's just them being disrespectful and treating you poorly for the hell of it.

I really hope Flow BMW is reading this stuff still, because this type of "service" is pretty pathetic.

I wondered about that.

I've visited Montreal once and I must say it is a beautiful city and I had a great time.

ATTENTION!
THIS IS THE FLOW BMW GESTAPO. WE HAVE BICKUW89. HE HAS CONSPIRED WITH COONTIE BY READING HIS POSTINGS. LOG OFF BIMMERFEST IMMEDIATELY. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
OMG This has to be thread of the month, maybe quarter.

For sure top ten for 2008!
