Chicago & Chicagoland BMW Dealer thread (Links)

Ok, since IL is too short of a term to search by, I was hoping this might help organize the eleventy billion dealers we have. There are many good and bad experiences with dealers, and there is no reason why we should continue to support shady dealers - I know I will be looking for a new one. Keep in mind however the "adverse selection" of posting a negative dealer review - expect a lot more pissed off people to post bad reviews than satisfied customers to post positive reviews. Hopefully the negative experiences (mine included) are isolated incidents.

Anyway, I will try and keep the links to individual dealer threads updated and hopefully this will be a good and searchable resource for us in Chicagoland and surrounding areas. Here goes nothing:

Anderson, Crystal Lake

No reviews

Bachrodt, Rockford

Notes:

1.) The +/- is just a summary of the OP in each thread's experience, not my personal thoughts on the dealer or the experience.

2.) Please continue to start new threads for your individual experiences so this thread doesn't get too cluttered with experiences. If you post a review, feel free to post a link here or PM and I will update this thread. This way conjecture can continue to take place in the appropriate thread.
