BMW of Seattle - horrible!!!

They are like the old bmw of Bellevue.....too good to say hello. All the sales personnel just sat in their cubicles. I guess they don't need to sell cars.......

Hmmmm..... They were there pretty quick when I was in. I did purchase there as they matched the pricing I could get via the internet. So far they have been fine for the most part. I did ask them if they would match the usual internet suspects on the M exhaust but the quoted me 4900 for it. I told my sales lady that that was above MSRP even before they lowered it and that you could get it for 3500 shipped all day online. She said she would talk to them and they offered 3600. I told her forget it I would just ship the exhaust there and have it installed at delivery. Then she got back to me a little later and said it was against their corporate policy to allow an item to be shipped in from another dealer. No problem I told her, I would ship it in to myself and just carry it in so they could install it while I filled out the paperwork. Sometimes these guys make me wonder what they are thinking. They know that I am aware it can be purchased for much less from a good many dealers and yet rather than make that profit themselves they try to push for more. Whatever, they had their chance.

They think that they are doing you a favor when selling you a 70K car.... So far I have given them many chances but always ended up ordering from somewhere else....

But their service department is amazing :-)

I had a very good experience at Seattle BMW. I ordered my M3 from them and it was delivered flawlessly. The closing was painless. I could not be happier with the treatment I received.

I went there with a specific question and they were the only ones, who could have helped: I was trying to decide between a 2008 550i and a 2008 535xi--they had both and I was ready to but. I went with my son and was given the complete run around. The saleman talked about the differences but basically talked me out of a test drive. I walked out totally confused--like he didnt want to make a sale.

I went to another dealer (Park Place Limited in Bellevue) and walked out with an '08 550i--with 6spMT FTW.
