New South Austin BMW Dealership opening in March 2018

This is very newsworthy... got off the phone with the future GM of the dealership. Website launched 1 week ago. Sign up and they'll call you. You can pre order starting next month.

That is good, that will give BMW of Austin some competition since they are not what they used to be like 3 years ago.

It has been a decade since that dealership was worth anything...

A new dealer may get extra allocations at launch, so you guys looking for an M2 Comp better start lining up now!

My money is on Hendrick's. Penske is an absolute prick and the dealership is old and I hate it so much for so many bad experiences...

I am so disgusted. The dealership opened today and I called the sales manager to get the skinny on their inflated prices. He basically told me that on an M car (I'm shopping for an M2) there wouldn't be any discounts. Ok, fine, then sell the fucking thing at MSRP at least, right? Nope. He's asking 67k for an M2 that I built online (same specs) and come out to 60k on the site. Next I ask him about an X3 M40i and I tell him that I can see it listed on your site at about 3k over what I'm pricing it for online. There he said he may have some room. So I sent him both builds off the site and am now waiting for his response.

Update 8/21/2018: I was looking at the wrong specs and the dealer made all this right when I walked in and talked to them... I wound up driving something different in the end anyway.

I saw all the m2s and most had a bunch of added m performance parts that moved it up, not seeing the base Msrp higher. Which one you look at?

Yea that sales manager will soon be canned. I switched guys and ended up with this, and got an absolutely sick deal. One payment lease with no monthly payment for 24 months. Guys I'm telling you, all of you need to move on this fast, they're desperate for sales right now. Ask to speak to Matt Baldwin and also mention my name and that I sent you, Steve Spy with the X3 M40i.

I just picked up an X6 from BMW of South Austin ... is not only a modern facility, it's staff and processes are the best I've seen. I highly recommend Montye Edwards,
he knows the products, understands his customers and facilitates a no pressure experience. Between Montye and Riley Walker the entire process from test drives, through negotiation and digital finance process was extremely easy!!! The level of service and attention to detail across the entire team was impressive ... this is the model for best in class customer experience.

I would have had Montye pick up my M2 Competition order, but that was in the works far before our new Austin dealership opened.

I've bought a lot of cars in my life from a lot of dealerships in a lot of different cities in North America. Barring none, this was my BEST experience ever. So I have to wholeheartedly agree with this post.
