Question Cincinnati Dealers - BMW Store?

I don't think I can take it anymore and I will no doubt purchase a 330i in the next few weeks, if not days...

The obvious choice in Cincinnati is the BMW Store, but there's also Jake Sweeney BMW over in Tri-County.

Any suggestions or feedback about either? This will be my first BMW and I'll most likely be trading in my '04 TSX as part of the deal. What kind of deals are the Cinci dealers giving?

Thanks!

Go see Dave Pavlik at the BMW Store, if you haven't done so. I picked up 10 days ago after ordering. Best sales experience I've had and I've bought Lexus, Volvo, Ford, Acura, Honda. Service is unbelievable. A true lux car experience from top to bottom. Sweeney? Don't waste your time. I had a terrible bait and switch experience there 2 years ago. Stay away. PM me for more info.

Hi Jon,

What kind of deal did you get there? I will be buying a car in Columbus very soon, but I don't think the dealers there will offer great deals.

Thanks,
Chris

Agreed, service there is excellent. No experience with the sales department.

Straight Shooting at Frank Z (Cincinnati Area)

Just placed an order with Frank Z in Dayton. Sent a detailed email to all four dealers in 50m radius with the following results-

No reponse- 1
MSRP- 1
Some money off- 2

Frank Z (Uwe Weiss) ended up with the best deal, had the earliest production/delivery date, and made what could have been a pain in the ass a pleasure. Excellent follow up & follow through.

I'd read both E90 & Bimmerfest, so I knew what to expect order a 335i Vert. Picked Barbera Red with Cream/Dark Burl. with almost everything.

Best of luck to anyone else. I heard BMW Store had 11 on a waiting list for one.

BMW Store in Cinci

I went there first and met with Dave Pavlik...Nice guy but no deals there.

Tried to upsell me everything....I am going to get all the stuff anyway..I don't need him telling me what to buy.

I leased my from a place in detroit and got a GREAT deal. If you lease from the BMW store Dave will try to take any options you add and make you pay for it during the lease. So if you add Navi for $2000, then you have to pay that $2000 in your lease price. You should only have to pay for part of the Navi since you are turning the car in. Doing it Dave's way you basically own the Navi (or whatever option) but have to turn it in with the car.

It's shady....real shady.
