Best BMW Dealership in South Florida?

Lease on the GTI is coming up soon and I'm looking for a leftover 2010 135i manual with M Package. I'd like to know who you guys recommend working with.

I have bought from Vista CC and Braman PB. I would not recommend either of those. I would recommend Coggin in Ft. Pierce.

There is a dealer review page here in 1Addicts, you can find info.

But I strongly advise to avoid FLL BMW and go to Braman Miami. Salesguy at Braman is Jesus Diaz Pimienta, he is very good, and there are a couple other SoFL people here who have bought from Braman through Jesus and say he is good as well. Their service dept is huge and very well run. They also have a huge inventory. FLL has almost no 1's, and Vista plays games with you, they are sleazy.

I have posts on my dealings with each of these dealerships. Info is extensive. Look back through old postings.

Braman Miami definitely. If you are "serious", then when you are ready to buy/lease, you can PM me your name and I will call Jesus and tell him to take care of you.

id go with Braman, It would be your best bet for any residual 135i. Speak with Steve Johnson. Didn't buy my car with him, but he had a good attitude and was willing to help me out with my situation. He doesn't play games with you as long as you don't play around with him. Know what your looking for and for the price you want. Don't hold your breath for a manual one exactly the way you want it. Whoever you choose there, I'm sure it would work out better than if you were to go to any other dealers up north.

buying a car it doesn't really matter. Whoever has the car that you want (unless you are ordering).

Service wise they are pretty much the same - avg.
