Karl Knauz BMW

Lake Bluff, IL

1,161 Lifetime Reviews Review Dealership
It was almost 80 years ago when, Karl Knauz the father of the current chairman, Bill Knauz, created the dealership that would bear his name for generations to come. Karl Knauz after years of being a chauffeur opened a gas station in Lake Forest. Did he imagine that this modest beginning would come to be one of the most recognized dealerships in the country. The franchises they have now, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, MINI, Land Rover, Hyundai, smart have put their trust in the Knauz family, (with Mercedes-Benz going all the way back to 1959). They have weathered the good times and the bad, and done so by taking care of customer's using 'The Golden Rule".

- JackMalone

I contacted Rolly (Roland) Davidson to let him know what I was looking for and he jumped right on it. Within a few minutes he called me back and presented me with my options and transparent pricing. Later that same day I was out at the dealership test driving the car and we finalized everything in a short period of time that evening. He also spent a lot of time walking me through every feature in the car and making sure it was all in line with my expectations. Thank you Rolly for making my experience at Knauz BMW one to remember. I am very happy with the decision I made and have loved my new X3 M40i for these first couple of months I've had it. A truly excellent machine and always a thrill to drive. Thanks again! -Jack
