Westchester BMW/Manhattan BMW

I read a full page ad that announced it was purchased (from BMW I assume) by Ray Catena. Anyone know what the story is, and what it may mean for the future, e.g., staff, service, purchases, etc.?

I dug the fact they were owned by BMW, and not part of some dealership group with brands across the board. Is BMW Manhattan still owned by BMW?

Are there any BMW-owned dealerships in NJ or CT?

Sign of the times, I guess.

BMW of Manhattan doesn't even have OK service. They are very rude. I heard some great things about Ray Catena dealerships. So hopefully if Ray Catena did buy them, it'll be a good thing.

yea bmw of manhattan was very rude when i visited there and bmw of westchester wouldnt go out of their way for anyone....i didnt trust them from a hole in the wall.

My aunt gets her Lexus' from Ray Catena Lexus in Larchmost and raves about them all the time.

So i definately see this as a good thing

I wasn't aware of the change as the website for Westchester BMW doesn't mention it yet but I found out when I made a service appointment.
