I did not have a great experience at Fields, but they barely had any 1series (before I realized I wanted to order one the way I want it and take the car via performance delivery). I get my car serviced at Patrick with Aaron as he is a windy city bmw member and takes care of me accordingly, and I dealt with their internet sales guy but like many sales guys, they want you to buy and don't budge much. I bought mine from Michael Banach at Elmhurst. Personally, I don't think it is as much about the dealership as it is you doing your research. Via this forum, you can see what most people are paying above or below invoice. Depending on whether you want to order a car or take one off the lot will influence the pricing as well (I did performance delivery in SC which I HIGHLY recommend). Once you know what you want and how much you want to pay for it, go into the dealership and go from there, if they don't give you the price you want, go to another place. It is no different than any other dealership IMHO. End of the month is the best time as they need to make their quota. End of June will be great because it is also end of the quarter.
