Recently had my 2002 M3 in for service. The service advisors were knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. Service was completed promptly and the car cleaned inside and out. I’ve had uniformly good interactions with this dealership over 20 years.

So grateful to Tom Escue for jumping on the lease that was turned in and giving me a call. The staff is so friendly and nice. My only negative comment is the two hours it takes to buy your car.
