I couldn't find the color combination I wanted anywhere. I looked at all of the car sites for a large radius, and jusy wasn't finding it. I noticed on BMW.COM that there is a Build Your Own Option, so I did. When I talked to the salesman in Peabody, Peter Lane, I thought he was going to give me some song and dance about how the price I saw online was not the local price to build your own BMW, etc... It was actually the opposite - they gave me that price less dealer incentives and BMW incentives! The interactions with the Sales Manager, Rick, were very good too. It wasn't that painful awkwardness when the salesman says, Ill be right back and gets this guy that you have no desire to talk to. The finance manager, Joe, took care of that end pretty quickly, also.
When Peter saw how distraught I was because the new car wasn't going to have a CD Player, he volunteered to copy a bunch of my CDs onto thumb drive!
The car delivery was very smooth, too!
