I purchased a BMW from BUL this past week. I was coming from out of State, about 140 miles. The things I noted were that: a) This is really a "car guy" type of dealer. Val is into cars, good cars, great cars. I don't believe he would knowingly buy and resell a problem b) He knows his business, both the cars and the paperwork c) While it has only been a few days, the car I purchased was "as advertised" d) He is not likely to be the lowest price for a similar car, but at the same time, one buying a car from a used car dealer, trust is about the only thing they have to sell, and BLU scored high with me. Still, be aware of small stuff that doesn't break the deal, or make it bad, but check things like floor mats, 2 keyfobs, etc. I didn't get either, but he sort of disclosed (long story) the keyfob and did make some allowance for it. Mats were MIA and I didn't realize it, nor was it disclosed, but you can't expect a dealer to check off every item. I should have looked more carefully myself. Not being local, I do not and probably will not have any "after the sale" experiences. But I would not hesitate to buy another car from BLU, especially when you consider the other used car dealers out there. I didn't leave his dealership until around 9 PM on a Friday night and as with all new cars, especially the high tech ones like BMW, i was pleasnatly surprised when I got a call from Val about an hour and half into my drive just to see if I had any en route questions. Nice touch; it was late in the day for him too and he took the time to check on me.
