He helped me to narrow down my choices, and I think I've got the right car. The sales process was easy, and I had excellent service.
The F30 3 Series is King

After owning the last generation E90 class 3 series for six years, I thought I was ready to move on to another brand and I didn't think I wanted another 3 Series. After driving the Audi A4 and the current generation 3 Series, I decided I stick with BMW. One year later and I'm certain I made the right choice. The F30 328i resolves many of the concerns I had with the E90. It's much quicker, it get's great fuel economy, I enjoy all the new technology and the heads-up display.
I get an average of 24 MPG and I have a lead foot. I'm normally not a huge fan of electronic steering but I'm okay with it on this BMW. In fact, it's much more enjoyable because it actually feels like I have power steering (the E90 was questionable at best).
I have the M Sport package and would recommend that you purchase your 3 Series with this package at a minimum because of the suspension and styling improvements. Especially used, the price difference between an M Sport and non-M Sport is minimal but you get so much for your money.
I also highly recommend removing the run flats ASAP and installing normal tires. This made the car drive so much more smoothly and provided improvements in cornering, braking and accelerating. Keep a can of "Fix-A-Flat" or get AAA/Other Roadside Assistance. You will not regret removing the run flats.
After adding 30,000 miles to an already used BMW, I believe the F30 class may be more reliable than the E90 class 3 series. The car is past 50,000 miles now and I couldn't be happier with the reliability and all aspects of the car.
I've owned a 525, two X5's and an X3 M package. This is my 3rd X5 and it is the best yet.
P.S. steering wheel volume should be on the left side. Why have two volume controls on the right? Otherwise, awesome SUV.
After hearing good things about Ben Winkle, we requested him when searching for a new Tundra. True to his reputation, he was not only helpful, but clearly honest and trustworthy--critically important traits when purchasing something as expensive as a vehicle. We ended up walking into the dealership and leaving within a few hours with a new truck. A couple of months later, our son needed a used car for his first vehicle. We again contacted Ben, who found the perfect, safe vehicle for our new driver at a very a reasonable cost. Neither the car nor the truck have caused us any problems so far. So if you're looking for a knowledgeable salesperson who will shoot you a straight deal, Ben's your guy!
Early Review - So Far So Good

Pros - style, comfort, features - cons, terrible function for the read entertainment system, cargo space is poor, rear window design and wiper system need work, gas mileage could be better
Ben winkle is not only a good salesperson hes one of the best sales person I've ever had the pleasure of doing business with period. Flying in from NY with alot on the line everything he said was 100% factual, and he felt more like a good friend not a salesman!
I love it it smooth drive!

Love it. Very Sporty

This XUV met me needs for a sporty utility vehicle with plenty of rear seat room. Quick from the start, handles great. Apple Connect was a plus.
I spent a lot of time trying to find a car that checked all the right boxes. I wanted a drop top. I wanted massive power. I wanted a German car. I needed back seats that people can actually sit in. A reasonable trunk. Good infotanement, nav, connectivity, etc. and an available CPO warranty. Some exclusivity. There are very few options - or basically ONE. This one. No regrets.
The power/torque is ludicrous! The customization of that delivery is extreme. You can switch from regular driving to beast M mode in one button. The steering, suspension, exhaust, shift timing, ALL adjustable! So fun and yet so well mannered and YES reliable. Almost two years and not a hiccup with this car. German Engineering at it's extreme. YES!
Salesman, David Villarreal was very courteous, easy to talk to, and friendly. He answered my questions right way. He did not make me feel pressured to buy. He worked with me with the type of vehicle I was interested in and Assisted with the financing. The salesman was totally professional. This dealership is well organized, and clean. I would rate the sales and financing department at Atkinson Toyota as excellent. I would highly recommend this dealership to any one.
