BMW Fever: I want it all and I want it now!
It’s perfect and I have to have it NOW! Don’t get rushed into buying the “perfect” pre-owned BMW just because it looks awesome and it’s exactly the right color. There may be serious issues that only become apparent after you have driven it off of the lot. For you that have owned and enjoyed your BMW’s previously, if it doesn’t feel right, it’s not right.
You may want to keep in mind, that in many cases, a sales person at a car lot is trained to establish that “sense of urgency”….you know, it’s “…being considered by 4 other qualified buyers”, “we really are holding it…but for you, a special deal”. If there is resistance to getting the BMW checked out by a specialist, well, it may be time to walk out of that place and try the next. In our area, there are hundreds of BMW’s on every corner of the local auto rows and of course, the dealerships.
If you live in our great state, there are some rights that you have since a special law in California was enacted in 2006, protecting used car buyers when buying at a used or new car lot, or dealership.
One provision, is a “restocking” charge that allows you to return the car during a specific time period. It’s my understanding this must be pre-paid at the time that you purchase the car, along with the proper paperwork. Is it a hassle? Probably. But, if for some reason, you cannot get the BMW checked out, know your rights, and how best to cure yourself of the fever of all Fevers! BMW Fever! Of course, you could just take 2 BMW’s, and call us in the morning.
