Question BMW of Daytona -Anyone bought there?

Well, Lone Star BMW is out of RTs, and won't have until the 2009s come in - about 90 days. So, I'm looking to buy elsewhere. BMW of Daytona/Orlando has had some good buys on ebay for "Exec Demo" bikes. I have read the threads on their service, and i understand it's a bit pricey, but I'm going to do my own, and have Lone Star do the big stuff.

Other than Daytona/Orlando - anybody know of a good reputable dealer with a 2008 blue RT w/the ESA package?

Thanks

You might look at Bentonville BMW.

A great shop that always gets good reports from riders.

Thumbs down Re: BMW of Daytona -Anyone bought there?

This shop is owned by the same people the I dealt with in Orlando, and posted in the lower report where "They didn't even kiss me" You read and then draw your own conclusions of how they might treat you.

Re: BMW of Daytona -Anyone bought there?

Good News - Jim at Gulf Coast put me in touch with Byron at BMW of Fort Worth - not even that far way! He had a bike that was exactly what I was looking for. Lots of help, good price. - I pick it up on Wednesday.

Bought a T-shirt there a few years ago. It fell apart the second time it hit the wash machine.

Re: BMW of Daytona -Anyone bought there?

I was looking for a second bike a few years ago. They advertised one that I wanted to look at so I called to make sure it was available. I was told it was and I made a trip over there to look at it. 70 miles later, the bike was nowhere to be found. Many excuses later, including, "we just run pictures of what might be in our inventory", I left. I will not return to Daytona BMW.

I bought my used LT at Daytona 3 years ago and it has been great, while they did give me a new windshield under warranty as the other one was scratched. My experience with them was ok. Thanks Tom
