BMW of Sterling Expansion?

I just dropped off my car at BMW of Sterling and Jim Eddy said they're opening up a new bigger building across the street sometime next year. Seems a little odd to me since I thought their existing facility is pretty new.

And I'm frustrated they don't do emission inspections.

I have not heard this, but not all that surprising. Im pretty sure they have a storage facility near the Chilis around from Dulles Town Center. I see a crap-ton of brand new BMW's stored there.

I just got back from sterling today and one of the CA's told me that they are going to build i think a 47 pod service center across the street, which will be bigger than fairfax's, and then plan to build a sales building next to it, and have the building that they are in right now be all Mini.

That would be awesome. I always feel like they are backed up when I bring my car in for service. Im usually there as they open (waiting in line beforehand like an idiot for up to 30 min)

Yes they are. Our service is way to small. I think the building we are in now will be Mini, Used and extra service.

This place is the worst - I just went this morning to get my car serviced and they call me while I'm at the dealership to say they're out of loaners and ask me to wait 3 hours to look at my car or reschedule -- so I reschedule and the earliest appt is 3 weeks from now - and this is the third time they've rescheduled due to no loaners even though they've 'reserved' one with my appt -- idiots.

thats one thing about dealers, the majority are a mixed bag...however I had a great sales expirence at Sterling, the guy was very straight, honored my deal and no surprises. Plus we basically did everything through email/fax, ordered a car, I inspected it when I came, and signed couple docs and off I go. My service was ok, I found a spot of oil on my fender from the oil change but they made sure not to wash the car and I was in/out pretty quick. I been working deals on the new car I want (not a BMW) and wow these dealers suck compared to my sales expirence here.

I found out from one of the service advisors that even though you "reserve" a loaner for your appointment, it's basically first come first serve. The best time to get a loaner is first thing Monday morning.
