How long should I anticipate to wait for the car to be built? Anyone have Performance Center delivery experience? Finally, tell me I'm making the right choice with Space! I've been going back and forth with Mineral and TiAg.

I was ready to get an M-Sport, but after all discounts, difference was only 2 grand, which is more than accounted for in the Performance pieces that come with the "is" (exhaust, ppk, wheels).

Plus, I test drove the IS, so I was hooked on it. BTW, Open Road in NJ has an IS if you'd like to go take a test spin. It's lemans with many options and something like a $48k price tag.

Which dealership did you go with? Would love a below invoice price...

Garage List
2014 X1 2.8i xDrive  [0.00]
2000 323Ci  [3.00]
2006 330i  [4.50]
2013 BMW 135is  [4.50]
Don't forget the additional incentives going on outside of your negotiated prices. Loyalty bonus plus financing incentive (requires $7500 loan but allows full prepayment after 3 months) plus bmwcca discount (requires 1 year of continuous membership). All of these added up to an additional $1750 after I negotiated the price. This all helps with your first set of mods. There is an additional $300 available of you are a previous bmw financing customer (I didn't qualify).

If you go through their internet department, try to get Z (that's his name) and tell him Marc sent you. Hopefully he can do well for you.

Here's his e-mail, but remember to get the good pricing from the start you might have to use one of the services (since he's "internet sales").

zszymanski@newcountry.com

He has been great throughout this process, and I am a needy/helicopter customer! Needless to say, when I pick up my car, I'm bringing him a 12-pack.

I contacted Z yesterday based on your post, and he was great, got an excellent deal on the car. I bought the other 135is they had, the one with all the options in space gray/coral red lol.

I will also be taking your lead and buying him a case of beer. Definitely the smoothest car shopping experience i've ever had, with no silly games.

Thanks for the info!

Ok, I think I'm super duper unlucky. Got also in touch with him. That was last Saturday. Monday he responds saying he is in the field but that he will get back to me Tuesday. Tuesday his manager emails me saying that Jonathan Dabran would take care of my case. I responded saying that I was already talking to Z (note that Z asked me to do that but I would have done it anyway, it's just good business practice). Tuesday evening he calls me to confirm my config and tells me that we look the car up first thing Wednesday morning. He calls me back Wednesday afternoon, right before I step into a meeting. I call him back 30 minutes later but he doesn't pick up. I call him back again at the end of the day and he still doesn't pick up. I email him this morning and he is not responding. I think karma doesn't want me to get a BMW and I'm gonna start listening . More info on my nightmare here

I know from what i saw that they are very busy and they told me the same thing. FYI all emails from Z were going into my junk email folder and i thought he was not replying lol, you might want to check that just in case.

If i speak to him i'll make sure to mention you.

Roger that Ciber! Thanks a lot. I would have never guessed that people on the forum are so helpful. I looked at my spam folder and nothing from Z there (although the email from J. Dabran was there). FYI my name is Alex. Enjoy your new ride!

I got a reply back from Z, he's working from home today. He asked me to give you his cell#, but i can't use the PM system yet. Maybe your messages are going into his spam folder. If you can, send me a pm with your number and i'll forward it to him.

Glad you guys are giving Wide World business! With all this profit for them, they should have given me a BETTER deal!!!! hahaha.

Ciber - they had ANOTHER 135is there? In space gray/coral? I didn't see it! Are you in the area? We should get together sometime.

Keep me posted on your transactions - I'm still in contact with Z and the manager as I wait for my tags.

Might as well bring this thread full circle: the car is finally mine... had 7 miles on it upon delivery.











Interior is absolutely perfect. Also thought I'd like the regular Msport wheels better than the 313s, but in person, they're perfect, also.

Gave up on Z. He is just not reliable. Like Ciber advised, I called him Thursday EOD. He picks up, confirms my config for the third time and tells me he will call me back at 9:30am sharp on Friday. He asks if I'm available at this time, I respond "Yes, I will be waiting for your call". As expected he doesn't call. I call him back at EOD but of course he doesn't pick up. He calls me back in the evening and says "Is that Robert?" I respond "No, it's Alex, I left you a message earlier today about the 135. You were supposed to call me back". He says "Ah yes, I will call you right back". I don't even have time to respond and he hangs up on me. WTF!?!?!?! At this point he just lost my business for good. I'll call Jonathan Dabran on Monday and if they keep on treating my this way, I'll just trash World Wide BMW on DealerRater, Yelp, Google Reviews, etc. That's sad and unfortunate but since when the customer is supposed to chase the dealer?!?!

Yikes! Definitely not my experience. Sorry about that. Hopefully you'll get the car/deal you're looking for. Did you try the sales manager Joseph?
