Southern California Dealer.

Anyone live in Southern California can give me a suggestion on which dealership to go for getting my M3? I went to BMW of Monrovia and their service is the crappiest you could have get as an vehicle customer.

Planing to get a 2013 M3 with competition and premium pkg before summer!

If you reconsider your decision to buy local, try this fellow: http://www.bmwdavid.com/#!about-david
You'd be hard pressed to find a better deal.

Wil Shaw at New Century is excellent.

I have a write up on the post about Monrovia. I will never go there again either.

I would suggest New Century and only deal with Tai Yang. I am sure there are other good SA but I have know Tai since 1990.

Everyone talks about Steve Thomas so I have no doubt they are good too.
