To start off, I’ve never been the type of person to buy cars that are more than 100 miles away, and even less so from out of state. My wife and I are pretty... big car people and have been in the market for a BMW 135i for nearly 6 months. We were pretty particular in what we wanted: 2009-2013 models with a manual transmission, and if not, 2011-2013 manual or dct with the colors of white, blue metallic silver, or titanium silver. M Package was a must and a coral red interior would be the icing on the cake. After months and months trying out different 135i’s locally, the market became so scarce of good ones that we were left to searching farther and farther out. It wasn’t until March 2018 that we found one that caught our eye. It was a 2012 with red interior and a manual transmission, along with other nice features and small modifications such as full euro front and rear taillights, better wheel and tire combo with good alignment, and carbon fiber add ons. Although titanium silver wasn’t on the top of our color list, this one had a very interesting color combo with red inside. With all of those added up, it looked amazing in the pictures. The only caveat, was that it was in California, and we were in Washington. It seemed like our search was becoming a far fetched dream the farther we looked out. Even with that, we messaged the owner on cargurus hoping to at least get a little information on the car. After a couple messages exchanged, we knew it was something we would definitely want to buy. Unfortunately during that time, we didn’t have enough time to fly out and actually see the car. So we gave up. A couple months later, we saw the same car posted on Newport Auto Source. At first we were confused as to how it ended up there, but after confirming the VIN and features, we knew that it was back! Being in a better position to actually see the car, we immediately messaged the dealership. We were greeted warmly by Nick (the owner and manager of the dealership) over the phone and after a couple weeks of back and forth we finalized a time for both my wife and I to fly down and see it. Like stated earlier, we’re definitely not people to go out of our way, or even out of state to see a car! As one would imagine, buying a car out of state requires a lot of trust and hopeful transparency. Thankfully, Nick was extremely patient with us and answered our every concern even before flying out to see the car. He would update me everyday on anything that needed to be addressed, and even went as far to pick us up from the airport in order to see the car. Words can’t really express how thankful we are to Nick for helping us through this whole process and being honest and truthful about every single item on the car and the process. As of last week, the car has been shipped from california to our home in washington and we couldn't be happier. We left California not only with a really clean and solid car, but also a new friend. I would vouch for Nick and Newport Autosource over and over, and am looking forward for him to source our next (rare-ish) car.
I recently purchased an 06 lexus gs300 from newport auto source. Nick was great through the whole process. Even though i was buying a car based on pictures... he disclosed everything to me down to the littlest scratch. The whole process was quick and easy. Would recommend nick to anyone looking for a quality vehicle.
Recently purchased a used Mercedes Benz from these guys and the entire process was so easy and stress free which is rare whenever your shopping for a used... car. I was really impressed with the overall condition of the vehicle too, it was really well maintained and clean. I'm so happy with my purchase, thanks again for everything. I will definitely be sending over my friends and family as well.
I Called in on a BMW I saw posted for sale, I was contacted almost immediately. The car was very clean and looked better even in person. Nick & Kam were... very friendly, knowledgeable, and most of all NOT PUSHY! I have bought a lot of cars in the past but this was by far the least stress free experience and I already told them to keep a look out for my next car!
