i just went there new century, took my wife there to testdrive a 3series and give the m3 another blast for myself...salesman named steve was a bit of a jerk...first he didnt really seem to care to help us and kinda talked really snobby with his nose pointed at the sky. then he took FOREVER (20mins+) just to get the two cars out..then walked us in circles to look at cars but didnt explain anything about the models....didnt even try to have small talk or build repoire with us....maybe the fact that we were dressed down and pulled up in a 1990 toyota camry with its paint half faded....he probably figured we wouldnt be buying shit from him ...and treated us like he didnt really care...After the drive, he just turned his back and walked off..we were looking at the cars and wanted to ask questions but he didnt even bother to stick around and answer them......We both felt that the sales guy thinks we cant afford to buy a bimmer, let alone an M car....little does he know, ive already placed an order with Ryan @ Steve Thomas weeks ago....this was the second time we went there and were treated like crap...judgemental off the bat, he doesnt know if i am going to buy or not, he should treat everyone equally, regardless of how they look or what theyre driving...dont waste your time there...two times is too much! worst sales center ever! worst attitude ever!

yes..what you say is true..i went there too and had to practically fight the manager just to get a testdrive on the m....finally, he caved and the sales guy took me out and told me not to rev past 4k....i told him i wouldnt rev it past 9k and floored it anyway...then he told me that it was enough, but i told him i would have to gun it at least 3 more times otherwise i walk..im not a child dammit...he caved...then i asked for a discount and he told me ur lucky to get even $1 off MSRP on this high demand car...said if i opted for 335, he can maybe get me $100 discount....another asshole....who are the suckers that buy from these people??

YES!!! that's exactly the kind of attitude they give off...snobby as hell and rude...unbelievable...there's a good chance that anyone who writes something good about them probably works there and is trying to promote their store without being a proper site sponsor...
