Re: Chicago BMW

They shut down in July. I understand the Tampa dealer is offering 20% discounts on parts.... maybe someone can confirm that?

I ordered parts from Tampa about 3 or 4 months ago, shortly after Chicago closed. The story was that if you ordered by telephone, mentioned to them that you were a former BMW Chicago customer and supplied them with the part number (s) that you needed they would give you the 20%. At that time I did all of the above and did in fact receive the 20% discount. Delivery was fast even though they didn't have the items in stock and had to order them from the distribution center. Haven't ordered since and so don't know if the offer still stands.

I ordered parts from Tampa several months ago, shortly after Chicago closed. The story was that in order to get the discount you should ordered by telephone, mentioned that you had been a former Chicago customer, supply them with the exact part numbers that you required and request the discount. I did the above and did in fact receive the 20% discount. Haven't ordered anything since then and so don't know if it's still available. OH yea, the service was great as well.
