Thumbs up Kate Horn at Russel BMW

I just ordered a 335i this weekend from Kate Horn at Russel BMW. Nearly the entire negotiation process was done via email. She was very knowledgeable about the car and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I got the same price as Passport's offer but Russel is significantly closer to my home. Plus she got me the car on 112 status.

The final deal he gave me was decent but I've definitely seen better posted here.

I decided to contact a dealer much closer to where I live, Russel BMW. Kate Horn emailed me back and we worked out the pricing. She was very knowledgeable about the car and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I got the same price as Passport's offer but I felt much more comfortable working with her. Plus she got me the car on 112 status.
$50 she was hot with big t!ts, thats why you felt comfortable signign same deal you were offered somewhere else

Either that or you're the most high maintenance a** I've ever heard of. No wonder some CA's get rude after having to deal with BS like that all day.

I've done more negotiating at a Lexus dealership for my parent's car than what I did with the BMW. This was also done via email. He could've simply replied with a "sorry, I can't get it to you at that price".

Edited the original post, I decided the negative experience at the other dealer is not relevant to this thread.

That's why you're a high maintenance a**! You didn't negotiate a lower price, you got the same price at the place you ordered it from!

Is it wrong for me to try to get a lower price? I did not order from the original dealer because I did not like the CA's attitude. Instead I went to a dealer thats about 45 minutes closer to me and got the same price, which it appears is as low as dealer around here will go. How does that make me an high maintenance a**?
