the worst was in irvine, ca. they just have a lump of vending machines. it reminded me of a toyota dealership. lol

don't get me wrong, i don't wanna sound cheap but part of what you pay for should be comfort and service. that's part of what i feel the package is when you buy a luxury car.

You Florida folks just need to drive on up I-95 a bit and try Hilton Head BMW. They don't play games like others...plus you'll want to take Performance Center delivery anyway (yes, it is great) if you're not doing ED.

so far have never been to a BMW dealership where the salesmen are waiting outside to greet you....you just happen to drive by and want to take a look ...have seen that even at Mercedes there waiting for you...but sales is sales and different approaches work for some...

It's not purely volume, (or "demographic reach"), either though, because a bunch of these dealers are from less populated areas.

Once you go to the Morristown BMW, you will see why Parkave i missing.
I never felt Parkave had a good service.
Morristown BMW really shines in customer service and care (before and after) . They are very prompt, and doesn't really give you much problem for any kind of services you request.
Also, you get a life time free car wash at the dealershop
Yea but I've been bait and switched at Morristown and number of bad sales experiences. Service is not bad but to me there recognizing volume players not necessarily good dealerships.

I've had bad service and asked for. 10 out of 10 on the survey. There just better at asking than most.
