I have been buying cars now for almost 50 years. I have purchased three cars from Thompson BMW and I have never dealt with a dealership of such overall quality. The staff from sales to service to the young men who greet you when you pull up and have immediate attention. Let me tell you a little about my latest purchase there. I had gone to look for a pre certified BMW I saw on the website and found that it was already gone that morning and I was not surprised. On my walk to my current car a gentleman came running my way and said my name. It was Walt Young who had been the sales manager of Kennedy Chevrolet some years ago. He recognized me after not seeing me for probably 15 years. That began one of the most interesting days in my life as we walked over to the new car showroom "just in case there was a good deal there" as Walt put it. We began looking at every model from the 3 series up to the 5 series and all were 2013 models. They were all great cars but I didn't want to spend that much. Walt knew that I was the father of P!NK, the international superstar in the music arena as I like to call her and it was soon known all around the dealership with my OK as it were. I saw a car sitting in the showroom and it was a year end 2012 but brand new and a 750i with the Xdrive and more than enough options to make anyone happy. After they looked at my car for a trade and took off the discount for being a year end deal the numbers were in keeping with what I wanted to spend. After some thinking and putting pen to paper as I like to do I bought the car. The delivery was that day and it was a great experience to say the least. I was very satisfied that I got an exceptional deal for the car. It has the V8 with twin turbo chargers putting out 445 horsepower and will stay with a Corvette but of course I read that somewhere. This was October of 2012 and I thought I might put two or three thousand miles on it per year and now that it is a year old we have around 13,000 miles on it. We decided to drive it to Louisville, KY to visit an old friend and then out and back to Iowa to attend my wife's families 75th Reunion and Picnic and to Syracuse, NY several times and it is just a fantastic car on the road and a joy to drive. This is why I have owned 7 BMW's now. Oh, almost forgot, last year around January of 2013 I had about 1,500 miles on it and we were going over to NJ for a funeral and the weather was just awful, cold, really horrible fog and rainy. We were driving south on route 611 and I was fooling around with the GPS and should have been paying attention to the road and we decided to turn on Bristol Rd rather than Almshouse, our normal choice and I forgot that there were two left turn joggles to the little strip center and then almost immediately the one for Bristol Road. Well, with me not really watching the road I swung left into the first left and hit the underneath of my car on a concrete medial strip about 9 inches high and it sounded like the whole bottom of the car was coming off. We stopped after making the turn on Bristol and I got out with a flash light and looked under the car and saw that there were steel plates protecting the undercarriage of the car. Instant relief, but when I took it to the Dealer the next day I found that the steering box was damaged beyond repair and that I really shouldn't have driven it to NJ and back. Anyway, Thompson removed and replaced all the damaged plates and steering box and made it a new car again over night. I have been sick ever since I did this as I have been driving accident free for almost 50 years. Anyway, the dealer has done so much for me and the service I have had from Thompson BMW has been by far the very best I have ever had anywhere. All the people there have been very nice and willing to spend as much time as I need. Dan Goldman is my service guy and he is the best and accommodates me in every way possible. Doing business there has been extraordinary.
