    Congrats to Dreyer & Reinbold in Indy!!! 4 years in a row
    Steve Baker heading Sales, and Dave Lyon heading Service! And to all the team members...
    Top notch all the way.
    Proud to say my first was bought as a special order from Munich from them in 2002!
    They also take care of my Z4MR ... Which, yes I bought from Perillo in Chicago, and I am proud they made the list. They took good care of me on the M, transported it to Indy with a right of refusal guarantee. They've earned my respect.

    It's a shame the award has very little correlation to customer service and satisfaction and relates more to the financial success of the dealership and sales and service volume. Not that CSI isn't important in the determination, but other matters of no benefit to the customers weigh more heavily in the computation. Our dealership has the highest CSI in the region and yet did not qualify for the Center of Excellence Award because a new building with an enclosed service drive wasn't under construction soon enough. Next year it probably won't qualify because it won't have a latte bar or a bistro. Or a high enough profit in the service end . . .

    Isn't that the truth! I hate the fact that the little things are left out, like the fact that I drive an extra 45 minutes out of my way to do business with Fields in Asheville, NC. They almost give you a hug when you walk in the door, they're so incredible with PR.

    The stupid thing, all over the paper last week was the "Commendable Entrepreneur" that decided to pair with the local Lexus dealership and open a little Coffee Bar inside. How much do you think their rent costs a month? Who's really doing who a favor? Does that mean if I don't want to go past into a chain like coffee shop I have to fight my way to find a parking spot in a ridiculous Lexus dealership, walk all the way inside, be accosted by sales people and THEN maybe get a coffee?

    Wait...I'd never pass for a Lexus owner anyways, I've got too many holes in my blue jeans and my boots have holes in them. 29 009.JPG
