Hi so I'm in the market for a 328xi and last night I contacted about 8 dealership via their web sites in the New York/New Jersey area about a quote. I've been contacted either through email or phone by most of them. One of the dealerships (Manhattan) said to me that he could not give me a quote without meeting with me first because their dealership was a flagship and one of the only ones owned directly by BMW. He said they would not allow him to do this. I think it's a crock but I agreed to meet since I work in Manhattan and I'm only about a mile away.
Is there any truth to what this guy says?
