one thing...what are the odds that you'd be the ONLY one to bid on this car?

Congrats Ken! At least you'll have a great story to tell (and a great car). Drive it like you stole it because according to Fil you did.

Fil and Husker should be forced to pay your legal fees too, but considering the Cornhuskering Fil has taken this week, he won't be able to sit down for a month so maybe that's punishment enough. Hopefully this will teach them to not try and screw people on eBay anymore.

WOW!!! What a ride!!
Congrats from Oregon, Ken.

I am very happy for you, but I must admit I will seriously miss this thread.
This is not just a forum, it's a "Family".

I was going to move up from a Infiniti G35c to a G37s, but I started searching for a low mileage, CPO, 6sp, M3, today!!

Regards,

Mike

LOL well, I wont say this is over, until I see my car at South Bay BMW.
The last time I said it was over, I got burned, accused of NSF and thoroughly berated. So lets hope for the best, expect the worst.

Congrats Ken!
From ClubBimmer.com, Atlanta Ga.

I'm the Dinan Rep at Global Imports BMW in Atlanta, let me know when you're ready to make the M3 faster. Paying only $60k should have left you plenty of nickels and dimes for mods!

By the way, my vote goes to [PWN3DFIL]

Good to hear that the deal went through OK. But as you said, it's not over for a long long time.

Not only does your M3 needs to be thoroughly checked up by South Bay (kudos goes to them), but also you need to drive it for at least around 300-500 miles error-free to call it over (in my opinion that is).

Here, I am glad to see that the deal went through and I sincerely hope that everything goes smoothly with your M3 in the future. Best of luck enjoying the beast!

I'm really glad the dealership finally decided to do this transaction after all the BS they put up.

This is an amazing story and it's only going to get better.

Had you made the choice of not ever posting your story about the Ebay auction with Husker, none of this would be possible.

This thread will never be forgotten.

Oh, Ken, when you get your new M3 post pics and info in this thread first so that you end the story in the thread that it started.

After we see the delivery pics, you can post another thread regarding how it drives and possibly more pics there as well.

I stumble upon other forums and thats when I found out about this story. I would like to congratulate you and actually thank you.

I'm pretty speech less

3 months ago I was the part of the Internet staff at Lincoln of BMW/Husker Auto Group and apparently I was laid off by Micheal Barrett who allegedly stole my Internet leads. Being force to sign the paper for termination I just quit my job and happily making more money as a sale rep Suzuki Auto Plex. Husker went to shit after all the changes that Van Tyul Enterprise try to do when Fil Cantani did some changes to the dealership. Hence, coming from to a Florida Dealership to Nebraska didn't do much to improved the whole system. Cutting pay to loyal workers, spending more on trades, and spending more money on the dealership (Starbuck coffee machines, free pizza to the customers) which wasn't necessary.

To me I felt this was karma....and I'm deeply satisfied

Enjoy your new E90 M3 =)

w00t! Awesome to hear it's on the way to you. It really is quite amazing what the power of many individuals gathered together through the internet can do. We kinda rock.

A lot has happened at Husker and I've worked there for about year and a half. Our old GM (Rob Patterson) wanted to change the image of sales rep in the dealership to be trustworthy and honest.

But now the image has change into greedy scums who don't care about their customers.

From what I hear about Mr. Barrett from other dealerships that he used to work (Anderson Ford of Lincoln, Capitol Mitsubishi, and Suzuki Auto Plex). Probably not a person you would want to buy from.

Everything you need to know about Husker just ask, I'll try my best to answer them.

Ken has his car. Be happy. Let it go. Consumer injustice (for the lack of a better term) happens all the time. This time justice prevailed. Let it go at that....

You made a good point. My apologies.
