Start calling around to all of 'em. There's a huge number of SoCal BMW dealers - you can hardly throw a rock without hitting one. Tell them the deal you want and see if they are interested. You can get the deal you want in an area with this much competition - I guarantee it.

Plus... A friend of mine knows an area Lexus service manager. He said last month their dealership went four days without selling a single car. That has never happened since they opened.

A down economy provides ample opportunity for the bold. :thumbup:

Absolutely agree with you! Taking into account the economy and the number of dealers to choose from, I would suggest employing the "Robert Payne" method (you can see his thread). Essentially just reach out to a bunch of dealers with what you want, at what price, and see who bites. If you are interested, I had a good experience with a guy out at Savage BMW in Ontario. Just PM me if interested.

Irvine BMW customer here. We bought our 2007 530i and our 2008 135i there. Call over there and ask for Brett, the crazy aussie. Let him know that Berk Technology sent you guys over.

I've been over there to Irvine BMW a few times now, I've met Rich, Nick, and Saliya. I'll have to ask for Brett this week when I go back, and I will certainly mention you guys at Berk Technology.

I used to do all my business with Shelly and Crevier. But, based on my most recent personal experiences with them over the past 2 years, they've both been disqualified from ever receiving my business ever again. However, YMMV.

screw creiver or whatever and irvine bmw just sucks. bad experiences from both dealerships. irvine didnt know anything about the 1-series when i went and said i have to come back to talk to the manager about them. creiver or whatever tried to rip me off. sterling bmw on the other hand no problems with anything and they have a costco discount, its not a huge discount but better than nothing

Resurrecting this from the dead.

I'm going to have to agree with this. In January I was trying to solicit a quote from Tom Curran at Crevier, and he refused to bargain with me. It sounded like I was causing him so much extra work because I wanted to do Euro delivery--like I was wasting his precious time. His responses to me in emails made him sound like he was so self-important, probably because I was trying bargain and not buying a higher-end model. In short, don't even bother with Tom or Crevier.

I've bought 2 cars from Irvine. 2011 328i with premium and now a 2013 135 with M sport.

Ask for Andrew, he's a cool guy that will hook you up on pricing. I paid well below sticker for both vehicles!

I bought mine from Bob Smith and just used the negotiation tactic of this is LA I came here to test drive in the canyons but there are like 12 other dealers so you can do this deal or I am calling until someone else will. Also helped that I was special ordering so I wasn't leaving with a car either way. But that's what I would do.
