Really had a good experience with my salesperson. Polite, efficient, not too pushy, and respectful of what my needs were. Dramatically different than other places I’ve gone around LA; in a good way.
BMW M3 is a great car!
by BMW M3 Happy commuter from Palm Springs California
November 13, 2018
I have owned this M3 for 2 years and everyday it makes me happy to drive it and enjoy it. I drive it to work every day and I am not the type of persons to store a beauty like this in a garage and I can honestly say that it is the best car I've driven in my life. I am 37 years old and I've had my share of cars... but this is by far the most fun to own and drive.
I went to buy a car and came 2 different time and was not able to connect with a sales person. Met Roosevelt Townsend omg this young assistance in making the process smooth was awesome. I am happy to have went back to carmax and got the best deal and excellent customer service.
Very fun car to drive

Love this car the M3 is very fun to drive. If you are looking for a reliable car on or off the track would recommend the BMW M3.
Alan gave me a great deal on my 2018 BMW X3 M40i, every time I have a question about anything, he has the answer and responds quickly. Great guy overall... if planning on purchasing a BMW, see Alan at Long Beach.
Jon Lewis!! Man I’m so happy every time I bring my car in for service or just a wash.. He goes far and beyond to take care of me and my car. Great guy!! Always greets me with a big smile. Very helpful and does more than I request!
Amazing Ultimate Machine

This car was an amazing ride. The best of both worlds in luxury and performance. The power it offers was beyond plenty of street use. i had the manual transmission and it was flawless shifting. Smooth but yet aggressive and sporty feel to it.
Great customer service and detailed attention to customer never making feel pressure to purchase the vehicle, got approved online and when i visit the dealer that night i was out in of the dealership with my new beemer in about two hours. Julio was excellent.
Great Euro-Performance Car

I have owned this car for over 4 years and it has been a pleasure driving her each and every time. I have invested a lot into her cosmetic and performance. The best car I have ever owned. I always have people show their appreciation for her Look and Sound. She is track ready but has never been tracked. V-8 Power and Performance. Low Profile for an even sportier look and style. Silverstone Metallic II color with Black Wheels and Carbon Fiber Accents. Just a georgous car!!
THE SALES TEAM WAS GREAT AS WELL AS THE FINANCING DEPARTMENT. I HATE BUYING CARS BUT THIS WAS A PLEASURABLE EXPERIENCE. ILL DEFINITELY COME BACK AGAIN.
No lie " the ultimate driving machine "
by Danger noodle from Lancaster, PA
November 13, 2018
It's been the best vehicle that I've ever owned! Maintaining it is expensive but that's pretty well known across BMW's. Other than that though?� If you want it to it can have a real "driver's car" feel to it but can also be gentle just the same. What a machine:)
I reached out after hearing the commercials, asked the right questions, went in with copies of all the required documents and or had them scanned in my drive to email, went in, picked a car and was out within a hour and a half. Carlos the sales guys, he was great. The internet guy, delayed in responding for a day or two, Carlos made up for that. Ricky was great and had us in and out. Left with a practically new car. No complaints here. No central AC with is probably why things were rushed and Mike doesn't have great customer service skills...but again, over good experience.
Awesome performance, beautiful interior!

This is the last of the naturally aspirated M3, with a 4.0L V8. With the appropriate exhaust the downshifts are amazing. I owned the DCT version with competition package and coupled with the suspension modes and launch control this is a fun package. The car does not have too much torque so is not tail happy, but balanced around the corners.
Brian was the best...he went the extra mile.good follow up............

I had a 2013 M3 hardtop convertible, but upgraded to the 2016 M3 because I really wanted a 4D sedan. Wow, this car is awesome. While I am not complaining about the 2013, the newer 2016 comfort, style handling, features, and power are just so much better.
I had a wonderful experinece shopping for a used car at Carmax in Torrance. The entire staf was helpful and kind. The salesman made the process very easy.
Best Sounding Engine Ever!
by e92M3guy from Chicago
September 14, 2018
I owned a 2009 bmw 335i coupe, and upgraded to the 2011 m3 coupe. Car is glued to the road, it is one handling machine. My favorite thing about the car is the engine, it screams all the way to 8400 rpm. Lacks low end torque, but a couple downshifts and you're ready to go!
Dealer ship sounds good, have not personally gone to find out for my self yet. But when I’m ready I will go take a look

Everything I thought it was and more
by Tazmn from Waldorf

The M3 has been a car I have wanted since a high school teen. The E30 M3 is what drew me into what is known today as a car enthusiast. Fast forward 30 years later and the f80 M3 holds those core values and more. The f80 M3 is mental . The way it accelerates and quickness of the DCT work together like a hand in glove to give you an experience that's always sought after. The interior is not the best in the business but it's quality in refinement to hold you in place and appreciate the mission you are trying to accomplish during your drive. The tune ability of the car is unbelievable if your into that. Stock form is more than enough. Also serves as a comfortable family car when need be. Turn in and road holding capabilities are excellent. All in all I made the right choice for the money. I can't speak on reliability because the car has only 6000 miles on the clock. It is my daily for 8 months out of the year. The reliabilty question will be revisited on another review but there are no worries since this is my 4th BMW
Numerous car choices at affordable price with excellent working crew to ease the buying process.
Always Been my Dream Car

I fell in love with the E46 M3 back in the days of high school. The styling, the handling, the aggressive fenders -- it was something to drool over at the time and age.
I could not be any more proud of happy to own this car.
BEST DEALER .BEST EXPRIENCE, JAMES WAS VERY HELPFUL. WORKED HARD TO FIND A CAR FOR ME, HE WAS VERY PATIENCE AND KNOWLEDGEABLE. ANSWERED ALL QUESTIONS
BEST Daily Sports Car Out There
December 24, 2017
Just like the title says, best daily sports car out there. Has more than enough power for getting around town and maintaining decent gas mileage, 4 doors means you get to bring your friends with you! DCT is a little clunky in stop and go traffic until you learn how to drive it. On the backroads you see why so many people like/want this car! Comp pack keeps everything planted and always get thumbs up for looks/color and exhaust noise, especially the burbles!
I've never experienced service like this from a car dealership. I'm still in shock and I bought the car 3 days ago! Alex, was truly committed to making sure I walked out with a great car that wouldn't break the bank. I never financed a car before in my life, so I didn't have good credit to finance. Alex, called around and worked out a deal, 4 hours later I financed my first car and drove home a fully loaded 2016 Ford Explorer. Walking into a dealership being a female is very intimidating, but I didn't feel that way at Platinum Autohaus. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone and everyone. Thank you Alex!!
