Has anyone in Toronto dealt with Caliber Auto??

I would really appreciate any feedback you guys might have on Caliber Auto in Etobicoek, Ontario. I am looking at a car in their inventory, and have heard varying reports.

PM would be fine, if anyone feels hesitant about posting their opinion/experiences on the forum.

THANKS!!!!!!

The M is more or less sold! Going to a great home in Toronto. BMW is brokering the deal, and we are just waiting on some final details to be ironed out regarding an extended warranty.

Will keep you posted

I have in the past but not in the last 10 years and the people that I dealt with have long since moved on elsewhere.They used to deal in lots of cars from the US & Quebec so make sure you do your due diligence on what you are interested in.PM me if you wish as I am in the business here in Toronto.

I have dealer auction access if you'd like some pricing - and if we find something you'd like and the cash is ready, we can go buy it. I don't offer this service to anyone but friends and family normally. But if its for an Italian exotic, I'll take a few days off my day job to help out (this has been my hobby business since 05')

but looks like you may or may not have bought something already? lol

Thanks so much for the offer - but, yes, I have made a purchase (from Caliber Auto - GREAT service!!!)

Hahahahahaha..... I agree. "A face only a mother could love" (if that mother was a baboon, LOL).

I took it up to Regina to have the safety done, as all the local places were booking way into January. I could NOT get on it - temps were minus 3 to zero, but completely dry roads. It was 90-110kph the whole way... Z rated tires and freezing temps don't mix very well, unfortunately. I tried getting on it a few times, but even after "warming" the tires up, it was a no go.... so, I had tons of people blowing by me with their winter/all season rubber....

I will post up and update in the spring. Right now, it's up on the lift, after my 14 hour detailing session, and waiting semi-patiently for spring/summer.

Thanks for asking!

I was very happy with the deal. I MIGHT have been able to save a little by importing from the US, but I would have lost that and more, when it comes time to resell. The main thing was that Caliber were AWESOME to deal with. Serge was very, very prompt with information, replying to emails, and sorting out minor issues. I can't recommend them enough.

Hahaha, you know it. The whole way, I was saying to my wife Mary - "Jesus Christ - we're driving. On the highway. In OUR Lamborghini. Can you BEGIN to fathom the magnitude of this day? I think I need a towel... ( ) "....


I noticed that Mary has added the local Mental Health department to her list of contacts, hahahahaha.....

Thanks for asking. Yep, I am loving it, but at the same time, I am missing the M3, in many, many ways.....

If you already bought a car from them, why do you want feedback?

I don't . The original post was prior to the date when I purchased the car. Initial post, November 12th, purchased the car in the last week of November, I believe.

You guys know you don't have to ask to go for a rip in any of our cars . I'd be VERY happy for you guys to go for a rip, and see how it compares to an M3 (NOT an entirely invalid comparison, really... there are aspects of the M3 that I prefer - in fact, quite a few!)

Hahahahaha - sure, but that would have been such an imposition....

Mary and I are planning a road trip out there, perhaps, this summer. I'll give you a shout if we make it happen!
