Have some patience! It's Friday, which is always a slow day here (as are the weekends). If you don't get a reply today, you will probably get one by Monday if anyone here has dealt with them.

Personally I think you should have gone to Cutter, but it's too late now. :D

Good luck,

I've been there

My old 95 E36 M3 was a CPO from Vasek Polak. I think its pretty much the same people and I've always been treated pretty well there. A short time after I bought the car, the battery deveoped an open circuit, and even though it wasn't covered on the warranty they replaced it anyway. I sent a nice letter to BMW NA about that.

Have not dealt with Shafik.

Monty, the General Sales Manager, is a BMW driving school instructor and a big support of the BMW Club out here. He is good about looking out for good deals for Car Club members. :thumbup:

And the new dealership site is a top notch facility.

I live 2miles away from this thread. Been talking to couple of people from this dealer. They act professional. I don't know about sale department but I have a disaster experienced with the service department. I spent exactly 6 grants over 6 months after my 09' 650i out of factory warranty (It has PLATINUM CPO from BMW corporation + Maintenance program cover until 100,000 miles though).

ESL?

They are just abusing you. I found your other threads. At 60k miles on a 3 year old car they 'tricked' you into replacing them all. Overcharged for everything.. Crazy

You cannot use yelp or other rating systems...you are a perfect victim and will bring out the worst in dealers.
