Maybe he is getting too popular - called ahead for parts to be sure they were in as I would pick them up in 60min, Mike confirmed he had it in stock, and to deal with the guy behind the counter if he was not there when I arrived. Got to dealer 15 minutes early, just to be told they were all sold out. Guy at the counter waffled on price (even though I referenced MAXBIMMER). Big waste of time.

Mike has always been good to me. So has Fil (the parts guy a few years back at Maranello). However, even with maXbimmer pricing I have still typically get cheaper price quotes from BMW Toronto without any type of discount???

The parts I purchased were:
e90 front license plate bracket - $9 cheaper at Toronto vs Discounted Maranello
e85 drivers side seat belt buckle - $25 (approx) cheaper from Toronto
e85 M54 o2 sensor - around $5 cheaper from Toronto.

Maybe it's just the parts I'm asking for?

What I do miss are when I was working for a auto mechanic, my discounts from Maranello were much better back then. Also when I was a BMW Car Club of Canada member. Much better discounts... unfortunately, I can't use either discount now.

Today marks the third time this MONTH I've gone to Mike. I will probably sell my car if he decides to leave that dealership.

Yep, Mike is great. Too bad other dealer parts guys feel threatened by his prices and won't compete fairly.

You are in Vaughan already, just go to BMW Maranello Parts dept and ask for Mike or google the dealership phone #.
