Dealer Rec in MD/VA/Northern PA/DE?

Anyone got any recs?

After consulting this thread

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=653325

I'd like to be able to try and get the $500 over invoice pricing. Seems like bimmerfest sponsors are more willing to work with ya on that.

Thanks!
Alainna

I've had good luck at BMW of Annapolis. We just purchased our 3rd BMW from them.

Thanks to you both; I'll definitely solicit quotes from the pair of them

BMW of Annapolis is the dealership nearest to me. I drive past them almost everyday on my way to work. I ended up going with a dealership over an hour away because they were so bad. Not only did they have almost nothing to test drive they were not willing to provide me with a serious quote on the vehicles I was looking at. I am only 25 so that might be part of their reason for not wanting to help me.

I ended up driving up the beltway to purchase my BMW. Here is my experience with BMW dealerships:

Paspport BMW - Marked up interest rate, marked up aquisition fee and offered me $1K over US invoice on a Euro delivery car. The funny thing is one of their CA offered to roll out red carpet for me if I visited. I made an appointment and showed up on time. I was then told he double booked after standing around for almost an hour and was then passed of to another CA.

Northwest BMW - Refused to give me any information in writing. Kept telling me your payment will be around $500 but did not give details on how they go to $500.

Silver Spring BMW - Very nice and helpful. Michael gave me all the information I requested upfront. I would have purchased from them if I didn't visit BMW of Sterling 1st.

BMW of Sterling - Best experience! CA loves BMW and you could tell! Jordan let me test drive a few different cars because they had a HUGE inventory. He gave me an excellent deal up front with no marked up fees or rates.
