Thumbs up Chicago BMW

I had my bike serviced at Chicago BMW last night, new tires, new battery, and oil change. Peter, service manager, Frank service technician, were both great. I know we so often are willing to take the time and energy to tell about the negative experiences so thought I would mention a good experience.

On a negative note though the sales tax in Chicago is crazy 10.25%

Hey, Patrick - I'm with you. An atta-boy or two just enriches this site in the eyes of folks who might be looking for some good words about specific dealerships.

I used to throw kudos at Lone Star BMW/Triumph in Austin, Tejas, every chance I had. Not near the opportunities nowdays, since I do most of my own maintenance. Ole Toad is way outta warranty since 2002, butt still get an opportunity to post good thangs when they do a look-over now and then. Nice 110 mile ride to git there, so that works for me too.

Glad you had good things to say about Chicago BMW. I've heard that before, about their service department - as well as about folks on the sales side of their aisle.

Re: Chicago BMW

Well, probably their service is ok. But I ordered some parts two months ago.

Still haven't heard a peep out of them...

Glad it was just some stuff for over-winter maintenance..

Don't really think a two month or more wait is worth the discount.
