My Review Of BMW of Bridgewater:
My experience with BMW of Bridgewater was absolutely fantastic. I live in White Plains NY and have access to 6 authorized BMW dealers within 20 minutes of my home. I stopped by each one of them looking for a preowned 335i xdrive. While they all had several, either I did not like the price, the color combo or the salesperson (which was the case in 4 of the 6 dealers). They are like hawks. I honestly dislike buying a car from a dealer, I always feel like I have to play the game, and that can get old fast.
Well I finally decided to do a search at bmwusa.com and was able to find pretty much the exact car I wanted at Bridgewater BMW. The only problem was that they were almost two hours away. The car I had which I was going to sell privately was a 2008 Porsche 911 4S. It was my third Porsche and used it rarely so most of the time it just sat in the garage. I thought that it's time to buy a car I can enjoy everyday so I decided on the BMW 3 Series. Anyway I drove the two hours to Bridgewater thinking I would look at the car, and if I can get it for the price I wanted I would leave a small deposit and come back.
I drove my Porsche there and after test driving the BMW we talked price with Dave Wagoner (whom I had been communicating over the phone for the past few days) within a few minutes we had a deal. It was the EASIEST automobile transaction I ever did. I asked Dave to look at the Porsche and see what they would give me as a trade in and after going over the car with their appraiser, test driving it and making a few calls they gave me a number that I actually agreed with. It was close to 5pm so I thought we would draw up the paperwork and I would come back to finalize the deal since it was so late. Nope, Mike Shamy the sales manager said he can secure a loan for me within 10 mins as well as get a payoff amount on my Porsche and do the transaction while I waited. WOW! There was no high pressure sales BS, just a friendly group of people looking to make me happy. I honestly couldn't believe it. So they took the BMW I purchased and brought it to the shop to prep and clean it, told me to grab something to eat and the car would be ready in about an hour and a half. I ended up waiting and was out of the dealer at around 7:30 driving home in my spectacular almost new BMW. Two things I told them. One, BMW has me for life and two, Bridgewater BMW has me for life. Yes, I will drive 2 hours each way to do business with these people. Thats how nice they were. Oh, and the dealership is a brand new absolutely stunning building. Took me a while to get home because of the traffic but it was well worth it. I just wish they were closer so I can give them the service business and because I know they will look after me as if I were family.
