Thanks for all the input.

Guess I should have added this in the first message. I had an appointment since my first two attempts were unsuccessful. Went to the front and said I had an appointment and the woman explained that the gentlemen they had scheduled me with had called in sick. Fair enough, people get sick. So, I asked if there was anyone else who could do a test drive and she replied that they were all booked up with appointments all day. Hmmm....

Anyways, I guess I'll set up an appointment at a different Denver dealership and make a bit more of a drive.

Also, anyone on here have kids in car seats? Just wondering if there was any problem with room in the back. We will be adding a little one in August, so I have to prepare.

: Well, I went out for my first test drive of the new 323i (third try) and the same thing happened. I couldn't have paid a sales guy/gal to help me. Maybe I just look too young or something, but this is ridiculous. I'm 26, make a decent living in the computer/internet field, am pretty "yuppie" looking, etc., yet I can't even get someone who will take me serious enough to open the damn doors up.

: Is this what BMW dealers are like? I sure haven't had any trouble at the Saab or Audi places. I definitely would expect to be treated nicely at a Bimmer place considering the great autos they manufacure, but can't even get someone to say hello.

: Oh, well, the money I have saved for this purchase at least will sit and make a bit of interest for the time being. I'm still dreaming of a future E46 purchase.

: Comments? Suggestions?
