Yet again, for South Florida Dealerships, it's really simple

Braman BMW good, Holman BMW (Fort Lauderdale; Pines) bad!

For Braman, recently, 1) My service was quick, easy, and I always get a BMW loaner.

2) My mother just went in for her new car, a 535i. They found the car that met her specs and arrives in only a couple weeks, and they gave her a great deal.

3) The Pre-Owned Manager is helping me to find a used Mini that will fit my specs for a "Commuter Car", and has many options and is working hard to find something that fits my parameters. Very helpful.

For Holman BMW, where she bought her last brand new 5 Series, it turns out that they sold her the car without disclosing pre-sale damage. The Braman Pre-Owned Manager, upon inspecting her car for trade-in, found out that the hood and front quarter panels had been repainted. Holman knew, and didn't disclose. That little bit is a $2,500 deduction in trade-in value, on a 4 year old car that only has 27K miles and never been in an accident and was garage-kept. THANKS A LOT HOLMAN! Once again, Holman is great for damaging cars, as their service dept has done it 5 times alone to our family's cars, and now this!!

Very happy to be at Braman now!!
