Re: chicago bmw

Yes they do. Not sure about the %. They said BMW complained about openly advertising they offered a discount. After you place your order online they will email you a total.

Re: chicago bmw

End of June I got a handful of fairing screws for ~$40 instead of the list ~$50.
The 20% appears to come off before shipping.
The first e-mail/invoice states full list, but it is followed up by a discounted total.

It's a much appreciated discount, particularly with the high end parts (like the $2100 list ABS unit I ended up buying).

Since I live in Chicago, I talked with Mark, the service manager, about the discount. It is still 20% but it cannot be advertised or reflected in the web site parts price due to some restrictions that have been placed upon them. If I had to place an order from them (rather than going there in person), I would call them up and get the price over the phone to eliminate any confusion.

I have nothing but good things to say about the guys in the parts department at Chicago BMW. Both Mark and Javier have always treated me in a professional manner and are nice guys to deal with.
