Lot of people mentioning Steve Thomas, but leaving out the most important part. You want to work with Ryan Amico @ Steve Thomas.

^^Correct, well actually you want to work with Checa. Ryan was promoted and is now our head manager of new car sales. Checa is now the internet sales manager.

but dont worry not only has checa been Ryan's right hand for years, Ryan still does all the pricing and ordering with BMW, BMW M, and BMW indiv so basically its all the same you just talk to Checa now Checa is awesome!!

ps: you will only get our special pricing on BMW's if you go through Checa. If you go through one of our floor people you are not guaranteed the same deals, just a fyi.

He gave me a good deal on my M3 and I thought I would repeat the same experience with my wife's ED. Now I know where he is. Thx!

For an internet sales person like Checa, can you just go to the dealer and deal with them in person?

Yep. Last time I talked to him was about a year ago, when he took over the internet department.

of course. You can only get the forum pricing if you go through Checa so keep that in mind. Also we are "ALWAYS" closed on sundays for family day. Its best to call before you come and make sure Checa is there and set up an appointment if you can. Dont want you to have to wait if you come bc she is with a customer delivering a car

Hi :)

Likewise!
Btw, have you heard that the Southern California segment of the Better Business Bureau has been expelled from the national consumer protection group. Apparently, the organization's representative in the Los Angeles area was only giving high ratings to those companies that paid for a membership. For additional than 100 years, the BBB has been the most respected of consumer protection groups. Now who can customers put their trust in?

Bought mine from Justin Wong at New Century BMW. Handled my ED without a glitch and only stepped into the dealership two times...

Waiting for my baby to cross the pond now.

Purchased my M3 at Steve Thomas from Ryan Amico doing European Delivery.

If I like the new M3/M4 than I would most likely be doing another European Delivery.

I just hope the new person that replaced Ryan is as good as he was.

Yes she is!

She's the one that picked me up from the Amtrak station when my M3 came in from the port.
