The most pleasant experience buying a car in 58 years! I usually dread it, but this was actually enjoyable! It took under 2 hours! Staff is amazing and Don Engle is the guy to go to! Very professional and knowledgeable. Don???t bother shopping around if you want a BMW. Century West BMW is the only dealership you need.
Oddball purchase, happy consumer
by time matters from Denver, CO

Bought largely in part to capture the tax credit prior to the trump bump. But impressed by the EV component . Six months in, still on the third tank of gas. That's over 3 hours saved from not having to stop for gas. Do you realize a 10 minute link to stop for gas per week is over 6 hours lost a year?. This is HUGE for this forty-something mid-manager with a family of three active kids. 6000 miles on less than 3 fill-ups (less than 60 gallons consumed / consistently over 100 mpg) - happy, happy consumer.
Zach and Jarod are the dream team! They were very kind and professional through the whole process of helping me purchase a new 2019 X5. Zach took my order for the X5 two months before it was released and it arrived 30 days before expected. I was so excited! Zach handled a lot of the paper work be I arrived at the dealership and what was left was speaking with Jarod in finance. Jarod was also extremely helpful in explaining all my options but allowed me to choose what was best. Best sales and finance experience of all time. I???ve been driving a BMW since 2005. Owned one, and leased three from other dealerships and didn???t have a good experience each time. This was my first visit to Century BMW West and I met Zach. This will be the beginning of a long term relationship with Zach, Jarod, and Century BMW. Thank you dream team, you guys are the best!!!
I'm writing this review specifically for RAY!
Not only has Ray helped me pick out the best car, gave me the best deal possible on the car (i know so because I compared the prices of the SAME CAR from 3 different BMW dealerships) and patiently answered all my million questions (since its my first car), BUT he also want out of his way and responsibilities to help me be approved by the bank that did not want to initially give me a lease because of my financial situation.
So, if you need a new BMW, go to THIS dealership and ask for RAY specifically. Your experience does not depend on the dealership- it depends on the DEALERS.
So, if you want to get a car of your dreams, Ray will do everything for you to be able to afford it!
I wish that this is not only read by the customers, but also by the BMW Beverly Hills management because this guy needs a raise!
zippy and god mpg for a large SUV
by robert from ca
July 15, 2017
I achive between 20 to 24 mpg wich is great for this size SUV. The m sport package is worth the money and the upgraded suspension ,wheels and body styling makes a big difference compared to the basic car.
I felt great to get my first BMW in Beverly Hill dealer. The purchase process was easy and fast. However, the agent didn't pay their passion on their sell, the only thing they care is asking you to purchase a car.

Ive own an x5 since 2005, and finally bought a new one last month. We decided to buy the x5 Edrive, and have been very happy with the car.
Ive been driving it for 4 weeks now..
You get about 18 miles on the charge, (city driving) and if you want sport mode, its been 14 mpg.
This car is faster than my old x5 4.4 , and its shocking to see the gas tank not move for days ....if you drive in Max E mode.
The size of the takes getting some use too, and the center counsel is not designed perfectly (it swallows up your key card-if not careful)
On average driving 40 miles a day , you can get about 45 mpg with conservative driving.
The car has the least interior noise I've ever not heard in a call... Its like being in a movie theater right before the movie starts...dead silence...really incredible.
The biggest drawback is the battery drains fast, and it takes a good 6 hours to charge fully on a regular plug.
Overall the car has exceeded our expectations
All around great service. Friendly and honest service. Comster service was always available. I recieved my vehicle within four days after the completed process, of paper work.
Terrific, efficient luxury SUV
August 2, 2017
Needed a larger car to accommodate my growing family. But also wanted something on the fuel-efficient side. There are very few plug in or fully electric SUVs (Mercedes, Volvo, Tesla, BMW). The X5 40e has been tremendous - it's plenty peppy, allows all electric driving around town (I'm getting 12-15 miles on the battery). For commutes under 40 miles, if you need an SUV, you should consider this. My only two fill ups (in 3 months of driving) have shown 29 and 37 MPG, respectively. The more short trips you do, the better.

very testingly good. it found it interesting how they did what they did. very personable, good knowledge and over all really wonderful to deal with. Wish there were more care parts for me to choose from so I could customize my ride and get personalized service. for future reference I would love some bucket seats to be there
Most stylish and exhilarating sport utility
April 30, 2018
This car serves all my wants and needs in an suv. Fun to drive, stylish, plenty of horsepower and great fuel economy. It's so light and responsive at the wheel. It handles like a sports car, but has the fuel efficiency of a Honda Civic. The electric battery comes in handy driving in town or stuck in bumper to bumper traffic. Very comfortable ride. My family love this car. I would recommend a test drive to really appreciate this car.

I live in the South Bay area and I drive to Pacific BMW for sales and service needs. I has been with this dealer since the mid 80's and have purchased all my BMWs from them. Whether in service or sales, I am treated with respect and honesty, which I value most, especially these days. I highly recommend this dealer.

great service. got a loaner without an appointment in one day. i thought their pricing is okay and not too bad and got a free car wash too. All bmw service depts are pretty expensive to start with. I also test drove 5 different cars and love the new building but parking is tough to find around brand blvd. area.
the best car
by Max Hernandez from Monterrey
June 14, 2017
In if the car is very comfortable and my kids love the design, it is spacious and easy to handle, i feel very safe in it.
Sirius XM gave me a call telling me that I had a free subscription which was going to end. I had no idea that I had a free subscription available... Arthur spoke to me and cleared things up about all the features. He and I met as well to get a better understanding of the car that I got. I have had 7 BMWs and I am finally confident in saying that I know how to use my beautiful car.
DO NOT BUY THIS VEHICLE!!
by BrentC1974 from Biloxi, MS
December 31, 2018
BMW has simply not figured out the hybrid technology. I currently own 2 BMW’s and have owned 4 or 5 over the years and this is the only one I’ve ever had any trouble with. Over 8 months of ownership it was in the shop more than my garage. I literally put more miles on their loaner cars and rental cars than my own vehicle. Far too many issue to detail out here but be extremely cautious with any hybrid purchase.
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!
BMW X5 - always improving toward perfection
by CoronaJOE from East Hampton
December 18, 2018
I just purchased my 5th X5 since 2004, this, new and updated version of the BMW X5 is sleeker, faster, hugs the road and is wonderfully comfortable. Gas mileage has improved to 20mph - really a superb vehicle all around.
S.A. Jon Lewis is very knowledgeable. Super transparent. Very helpful. I would highly recommend requesting for Jon when you need your BMW serviced.
Worst roadholding ever
by RSA from Lake County IL
November 29, 2018
My worst car choice in 30 years. Traction control is a joke. I kept my son's 2008 Trailblazer so I'd have something surefooted and quiet to drive in winter. No AM radio. Rear tailgate won't close from key fob. Skids all over when it snows. No remote start. Gas mileage is poor. Leaks onto my feet when it rains. BMW roadside assistance did NOT answer the phone when I needed help. A total disaster with nothing to recommend it. Huge waste of money.
My Service Rep Robert was very attentive and made sure the service job was completed to our satisfaction.

The right size SUV for my growing family. Very comfortable especially for a long drive and lots of room front and back. Has twin turbo, equipped with navigation and backup camera all features my hubby loves. I am up higher compare to my 2016 RAV4 and feels really really comfortable.
Very nice facility. Good service. Relaxing atmosphere
Good first attempt but held back from greatness
by MoMo from Malibu, Ca
July 31, 2017
This review is for the non-M-package X5 40e.
Good first attempt at a Hybrid SUV for BMW but needs refinement to reach greatness.
If your commute is around 12 miles a trip with a charger at each stop you can theoretically never fill up with gas which is a fantastic proposition. I've managed 41mpg (870 miles with one tank), but I've also managed 26mpg when I had to mix in a lot of highway driving (I drive very conservatively).
The 4-cylinder turbo is a far cry from anything VW group makes - a coarse almost dieselesque feeling unrefined 4-cylinder that could benefit from more horsepower and smoother operation for this 70k 5000lbs+ beast. Keep this thing charged to benefit from the additional punch from the electric motor to keep it moving at an acceptable pace.
On the topic of charging, it definitely is on the slower end of the spectrum.
The suspension needs to be honed in, the additional weight of this car due to the battery coupled with the soft suspension creates a tidal wave effect when going over uneven surfaces and the body roll in the twisties is more than BMW should have ever allowed.
The seats are best suited for small trips, after an hour of driving they get uncomfortable and I find myself shifting around a lot to find comfort.
Both exterior and especially interior are showing their age, although a very handsome exterior it's definitely time for the update that's around the corner.
The i-drive system is the best it's ever been, unfortunately BMW's slightly convoluted HVAC system isn't the best one on the market, VW/Audi are the masters of cold and hot air on demand from my experience. The amount of noise in relation to the amount of cooling and heating you get in the X5 is off...by a lot.
Rear seat room is great, cargo space is good, even though you give up some trunk volume due to the battery it hasn't affected me negatively one bit. The tailgate I absolutely love having, as a photographer it's been awesome to be able to work out of my trunk when needed.
The car is a good lease option for anyone in the market that needs an X5 and wants to capitalize on the hybrid benefits.
Here's hoping the next gen addresses the issues and I'm sure they'll have a winner on their hands.
Bought my car in Monrovia. The process took a little longer than expected, but after I proved I wasn’t purchasing without the best deal I finally got what I wanted. The service dept has been great and all of the workers are courteous and helpful.
Nice ride and economic
by Ks from Newyork
April 8, 2017
Great car to drive and give u the feeling of a powerful ride but yet you are somehow contributing to saving the planet. Handles nicely, rigid and has good space but could sometimes feel like a minor lag in power but nothing of concern
I was surprised by the greeting I received and impressed by my attendant Cole. In the past l felt ripped off by this dealership and the past personal appeared to be interest only by the amount of money and problems they could create involving my car. They seemed to be honest and really cared about my well being and the true up keep of my car.
But the only complaint I have is that one of the customer service women wears entirely too much perfume. The smell literally burned my nose hairs. If someone could just tell her to tone it down the frangance would be more appreciated.
First I got internet salesman, then when I arrived at the dealership I was referred to another salesman. I was told the car was not at dealership.....then after I bought the car and finished with the finance office, I never saw
the salesman again to congratulate me nor to instruct on new vehicle!!!
Before they were called Shelly BMW, customer services used to be excellent but not it's poor.
