In Reply to: Any West Coast BMW reps or salesmen on this board? posted by Stefan Yotz on March 01, 2001 at 11:38:37:
There are three local dealerships and the all are terrible. BMW Northwest screwed me on my current 325is, Bellevue BMW are complete snobs and has no customer service, and BMW-Seattle just doesn't give a damn and is snotty as well. (The sales-weasel there yesterday basically said I didn't know what I was talking about in the rare Z3 colors since HE had never heard of them)...
I am willing to deal with any dealership on the immediate West Coast as the drive is no problem for me. I basically need an honest dealership, and a decent and real-person sales guy/gal. I am tired of dealing with snotty sharks or the 'I am your friend but the Sales Manager says blah blah blah' crap. I am just tired of them playing the games..
If anyone has any recommendations please let me know.
About 3 week ago, I had a very good experience buying from Cutter BMW in Santa Barbara, CA. I drove in from Las Vegas to make the deal because of the sorry way my local dealer handled his opportunity to get my business. At one time I had e-mailed 40 or so dealers around the country and fortunately got the best offer from a relatively close place. 2001 3.0 steel gray/black top.
