Can I order from you?

2835 41
Hello Jon,

I might be getting a 330Ci next spring. For all the time you put into the BMW internet community you deserve the business. Is it possible to order from you even though I live in Texas? What about shipping?

Order from Jon, fly to L.A., drive up to S.B. and drive your new BMW home! By the time you get back to Texas break-in would be over and it's time to have some fun!
Dear MatthesTX,

Thanks for the inquiry! Abso-___-lutely you can order your
new coupe from us... By next Spring production should be
totally ramped-up, and 330Ci's should be readily available.

Shipping might negate a lot of the $avings, so I reccommend
the patented "Santa Barbara Delivery"... :)

The one bummer with Texas is Taxes (as in
Personal Property Tax)... No leases for Texas residents
from CA retailers...

:(

"Cash" deals, or conventional "retail finance" deals are
a piece of cake, though.

:)

Let's stay in touch, and I'll take care of you...

Thanks again for writing!!

Best regards,
--Jon

I would have a hard time keeping it under 100 on those vast desert highways :angel:

I talked to a guy in Houston who bought an M3 in LA, CA, claimed an average 103 for the trip back :yikes:

The only thing which really kept me in check during my car's break-in period was that I was stuck in LA traffic most of the time! I wouldn't be able to restrain myself on a long trip like that back to Texas.

Hey Jon,

I was thinking about asking you the same question. I'm a little closer - Phoenix. I'm thinking about pulling the trigger in the next couple of months. I'll get in touch with you to see what we can do. Thanks.

You know just where to find me...

What about Oregon Residents?

John,

Can an Oregon Resident take delivery in Santa Barbara without paying CA sales taxes and drive it back home up North.

Last I checked that is a "no can do" but times may have changed.

Thanks ..... Zappo

Hey Zappo - thanks for the message.

The way that CA use tax works, if a new vehicle is retailed
in the state, and is "driven" away under it's own power
(in contact with the highway), we have to charge sales tax.
In other words, if it gets shipped aboard a "real" legitimate
auto transporter (with a Uniform Commercial Code Bill Of Lading),
and is delivered out of state, no use tax is required...

Some dealers will literally drive the cars on a "dealer plate"
over the state line, but that is kinda kinky...

Shipping to Oregon runs in the $800 range...
John - Thanks buddy .... That's kind of what I figured.

First, let me see what the two local Portland dealers (and maybe Eugene) can do about factory ordering a 2003 325Ci in Titanium Silver w/ Black 'ette, Steptronic, Moon Roof, Sport Pack, 3 Series Alarm, Floor Mats, Met Paint and DAG for delivery "whenever."

I suspect it would probably end up a wash on a no trade-in all cash deal when the $800 is figured in, especially on the hot selling Coupes.

John, I bet for you, these threads are better than porn!

I bet having this new eponymous forum will yield even more customers for you than before. More name recognition, more visible support from this community, etc.

You've made some great decisions, treated customers well, and now you're successfully expanding your business over the whole western US market!

:D :thumbup:
:confused:

How's the baby??
Great! I've added a Whalen shift knob, and have a Conforti CAI on order.

My kid's doing great too! :D

She's just about 4 mos. old now. Growing like crazy! I love her more than anything in this world.

Actually, that's all he can do.... Think. No touchy, no feely. But what he does in the privacy of his own head is his business. :yikes:

Thanks! Gorgeous poochie, too!

But watch out... that's kind of how it began with us, about a year and a half ago (it really is just *far* too cute over here sometimes):
