Local dealers with a 1 on the lot

Hoping we can start a list of which dealers have a demo car or maybe even customer cars so we can see them in person. Id like to see the actual colors on the car before I finalize my color choice.

I don't like Pacific Glendale, a SA gave me the run around telling me they didn't even have pricing on the 1series and tried to sell me a 335i. The pricing was on BMWUSA! (I was in their dealership this month for reference.) In any case, they are a high volume dealership and just might be able to swing a 135i for the showroom before others...

I was at Pacific on Friday, where I bought my wife's 535 a couple months ago.
The salesman ask me what color 135i I wanted. He printed out the options and pricing on one. I told him I didn't want the navagation on some other girlie options, but he said that the're all coming fully loaded.

Didn't want to have to say "I told you so", but thats the first thing that comes into mind. Pacific BMW doesn't sync. their info from SA to SA.. However, I have been in contact with the fleet manager over at Pacific and was quoted straight MSRP on a 1..

If any of you are still looking for a 135i coupe pre-order, I am under the impression Michael Kellison of Center BMW (Internet Sales Manager) has 2 more slots for April production. He is my SA and I think he is a pretty straight forward guy.

BMW in Calabasas said that they are forbidden to show any 1's before 03/22. However, they are expecting their shipment around 03/15. They are initially getting 8 of them, 4 of which were pre-orders. Two will be demos and two will be on the lot. I was also told by this dealership that BMW is only allocating 200 1's per dealer for the first two years. He added that that is nothing considering that they sold 500 3's in the last year. BMW obviously wants to create a demand......

By the way, nice choice on car/option selection infinitekid2002. I was going to get that exact same combo.. Trying to stay away from the coral red int. though.. certainly nice, but a bit too flashy for me.

I'd definitely stay away from Pacific as well. They wanted to markup my 135 order an undetermined amount. They gave me the pricing BS story too. I went with New Century.

I'll probably call or email around for SoCal dealerships with 135i coupes in MT, but I doubt any of them would let me testdrive as I'm really young. The only dealership would probably be Century, as I am buying my 1er with them. Unfortunately, as you stated, the car doesn't match what I'm looking for

I didn't go there in person, but I did ask them for a quote via email when I was shopping around.

Cunningham BMW in San Diego says "...we hope that the 22nd will be the day, but it is not even clear to us yet!"

Heard from a friend that Beverly Hills BMW had two? But im surprised he could tell the difference between a 1 and a 3 so take it with a grain of salt.
