BMWSA vs BMWAustin

Does anyone have an opinion between the BMW dealer in San Antonio compared to the dealer in Austin? I live between the two so it does not make a difference as to which one I would get my service.

I am going to be in need of the same information as well. I am interested mostly in the wait times and amenities in the waiting area.

Dealerships are always going to be expensive out of warranty and the service advisers don't relay information properly from the mechanics.

I can only respond about the BMW in San Antonio. I have always received good service and attention from the. Their waiting area is not bad but nothing luxurious. It is far better than the Volvo dealership around the corner.

I was just reading about the Austin site and was curious. They look good on paper, or the Internet, and I like the fact they do tuning.

I can only speak for the Austin Dealer, very nice waiting area, great staff, average waits and they are a Dinan dealer so they give you no hard time about mods on your car. I will suggest for you to take a drive to both dealears and compare...

Me neither. I wish they would do the Dinan tuning though.

You are right. I will have to take a drive up and see their dealership.

BMW of San Antonio just serviced my car and did an excellent job. The car was returned clean with new oil and air filter in under 2 hours.
