If you're in Schaumurg, IL. Which bmw dealerships have you done business with and which would you recommend? (Or avoid)

I'm new to the Chicagoland area and was thinking of Laurel BMW of Westmont ... but I have nothing to base that on other than a few Google reviews. Placing an order for a 335i/340i soon and want to buy from the right place!

I've never been to Laurel. I live less than a mile from MotorWerks in Barrington, I bought my last car from them, but they've changed over the past few years. My two favorites are Elmhurst BMW and Anderson BMW (Crystal Lake). Anderson is a smaller dealership, but they're friendly. Bill Jacobs is VERY pushy, and I don't think they really listen. Bottom line is it's good to have 10 or 12 dealerships to choose from

Keep in mind that sales tax varies in Chicagoland based on where you live AND where you buy the car. It's crazy-difficult to understand. Here's a link to a chart that will help you calculate what you owe: http://salestaxoncars.com/

+1 for Elmhurst. I've also been impressed with Knauz, north in Lake Bluff. Knauz is larger and has more inventory and they have a BMW Certified Collision Center. Fields is close to the city and they have a really nice facility with extra amenities, they serve food, but I'm not sure how they do on pricing.

Sweet! It looks like a few people picked up some curb rash going in/out of that spot, though.

I think if you double park you're asking for it.

Just parking far away really should be fine. I do it everywhere. I have a friend who always double parks and amazingly he has never gotten keyed, granted he always does it far away anyway, usually where there are no cars.

Double or triple park and you are ASKING for trouble.

On the flip side, I have found there are always those people in society who just are defective. I used to have a 02 Camaro SS 1LE Anniversary Edition, 3000 were built, less than 120 were built with the 1LE package. I would park it way out whenever leaving it in a lot, which was rare, generally just a cruise car and for shows. After 11 years it had 21k miles on it. Did the same thing with a 08 Charger Super Bee, and fairly regularly I would come out....10 or more spaces between where I parked and the next nearest cars......and some moron had parked right next to me. Usually with their passenger side so close to my driver door as to make it nearly impossible for me to get in.

People suck.

Westmont is really good! If your willing to drive, Orland Park is also very nice.
