We also used the internet to find a car with Santa Maria BMW and we are UNHAPPY. We purchased a Certified Used X3 from this dealer. We are from SoCal and we thought their price was worth the 3 hour drive to get the car. Mechanically, the car is good. Aesthetically, the car was poor. The car was very dirty when we test drove it even though we had put a deposit on the car 3 days earlier. The salesperson recognized that and told us they would detail it. We gave them time to detail the car. When the car came back, the interior windows were still dirty enough to make it difficult to see out, there was food under the passenger seat, there was food in the back seat, there was still deteriorating shipping plastic on interior parts, and the car was still in need of good detail. In spite of this, we still bought the car since we have a very good detailer and would take the car to him for $175.
Cons: Keeping commitments and service
