Is www.promoautoservice.com a Dealership or Third Party company ?

Looking at buying a m3 and thought I'd ask for some opinions here in the forums..I saw this on a website called www.promoautoservice.com. Their name is Promo Auto Service Depot. The reason for asking here is that I am afraid of the usual hidden dealers taxes or anything wrong may happen with a company of this kind...

I personally purchased an audio system trough this company. They presented the total amount from the begin which included the shipping fees. I paid the amount agreed, nothing more or less. I have used this company as a third party because I wasn't able to collect the system by myself. Honestly, I don't know if the things run the same on a car purchase. They have been pretty straight from the begin. I don't see why would they lie to you, especially on the fees.


Cheat Sheet:

GT1/ISIS/MoDiC = Factory authorized diagnostic system used by BMW dealerships across the world.

NCS Expert = BMW Factory R&D programming tool available on the internet (not intended for the public and not available to the dealership network)

OEM = Genuine BMW part only available from a franchised BMW dealership.

DME = Engine Management Computer

If there is an signed agreement/contract/invoice/bill of sale between you and this company/dealership, things should be clear enough for the both parties.

I always like to do things like this face to face and so I avoid getting in the middle of something I would later regret. Looking at this company's ratings and reviews I believe it's genuine. Also judging from what his company offers (7 days inspection policy, pre-delivery inspection, buyer protection etc.) I think it may worth a try.

Promo Auto Service Depot offers you an invoice and bill of sale signed and stamped by Promo Auto Service Depot and www.promoautoservice.com. I know that because I have purchased a tractor trough them. The deal went smoothly without any troubles. I would recommend Promo Auto Service Depot to anyone who doesn't like to travel long distances. I like and always encourage the idea of seeing in person what you're buying, especially over the Internet, but when it comes to travel more than 2-300 miles to buy something, in my opinion, Promo Auto Service Depot is the best option. The number one reason for using this service is that you can run/test/inspect the item/vehicle for 7 days and have the opportunity to return it at no cost for you as a buyer. I didn't had to use this policy on my tractor because it was pretty much as described. All in one, I am happy with my purchase trough this company. I highly recommend them to anyone.
