I use Andy Tse at Life Quality in Brooklyn and he know the drill.


Have spoke in the past with Mark Carvalho at JMK in New Jersey, and others here said very good things about him. If you are looking to do MSD he would be a good person to try.

I went to NJ so I could use MSDs.

I spoke to a couple of salespersons recommended here and finally chose Mark Carvalho at JMK BMW in Springfield NJ. This was last year and I had a great experience.

He is very thorough and follows thru on all details. For example, without my prompting he gave me the iPod cable before I left for ED (they don't give you a iPod cable at the Welt) and made sure I got the 2008 Nav DVD in May 2008 when others were complaining that dealers were still giving them 2007 version.

Good Luck.

I placed a order for a MY 2010 535i using Mark Carvalho at JMK BMW 9 days ago. I have my prduction #, Luft. 2-1 tickets confirmed, and today got my purchase order and signed all the legal paper work for ED and also got the iPod cable. Mark is # 1 along with the rest of the JMK BMW Center.
cheers

Agreed on JMK for good service. I found Park Avenue BMW is willing to give the most aggressive pricing, however. I've used them twice.

So far out of 4 CA's that I tried getting in touch with only 1 of them responded to me (with somewhat incomplete info) all further emails to this same CA went unanswered - rest of them just ignored my emails all together I guess business is not that bad on the east coast

From my understanding, business is way down on the East Coast. Seriously, try Park Avenue BMW in NJ... I got a very, very good deal on a 335i. Be careful with guys trying to jam you with extra fees after the fact; work up from invoice and concentrate on your "drive out" price. I also felt JMK did a good job to try and match.

IMHO I think board sponsors deserve the first shot. Care to share why about Ricki? She gets nothing but rave reviews on here for her ED expertise and pricing.

I have heard good things from multiple BMW boards regarding Mike. I probably would have gone with him if I didnt use a board sponsor.

Did you use her? I did, based on the "rave reviews" here, and I guess I dealt with a different Ricki than others did.

I would agree with you 100% in regards to board sponsors, but in order for me give anyone a shot, they need to respond to my emails

she is busy, you're right about that.

But let me tell you, she's real nice to deal with. No scams, no bs. Hard to catch her but you're getting a car, not a dinner companion. Aint nuthin to talk about, cept the price & date.
