San Diego potential owner with a question

Hey guys, long time reader first time poster =)

I am going to order, or buy an e90 or e92 the next couple days, and was wondering if anyone can refer me to a good dealership/salesman in the San Diego County area. I am going in to BMW of San Diego tommorow to look at the coupe and sedan side by side and decide which I want, but I have never bought a BMW beforeand dealer reviews online all seem to be pretty negative.

Any input would be great,


Kory

At Cunningham in ElCajon, there's a guy by the name of Jon Walker. Although I didn't buy from him, I would if I were in the market for another car. I was really impressed with his knowledge of racing his 335 and other BMWs. So, instead of a numbers sales rep, I guess he'd be a performance sales rep.

I think he said he used to work at BMW of san diego a few years back.

Good luck and enjoy the new car when it arrives.

Amazingly enough looks like I am going to be able to get one at $500 below msrp through coscto's auto purchase program, going to go in friday and order one. I am going to see your boy at BMW of san diego tommorow though, maybe they can beat it.

You don't buy it through costco, you buy it through one of their member dealerships. Which in our case is bmw of encinitas. They have a rep there who will contact you. All you have to be is a Costco member.

I just ordered my car =). Moises at BMW of San Diego gave me $500 off msrp, and let me test drive one today. I know I might be able to get more off msrp eventually, but at this point 500 off is good with me.

I remember speaking to a dealer at Brecht months ago.. They told me they would do MSRP but I would have to get Paint Protection and LoJack. The dealer said it was standard on every car they sold... total BS.
