Eric, Mike, Todd, and Blaire were all amazing. Eric was very transparent about the vehicle's history and current status. I even had them add several cosmetic and performance modifications to improve the vehicle to my liking before delivery.
I have purchased an 89' E30 M3 and an 87' E24 M6 from these guys. Both of them are in phenomenal shape. They truly were as clean as they looked in the photos. Eric is a great guy, and always fun to speak to. I hope to do business with EAG again in the future!
Having just completed my second BMW M car purchase from Enthusiast Auto Group in a little over a year, I am overwhelmed by the professionalism that everyone in your organization exhibits. I would have to say that dealing with car dealers was one of the most dreaded experiences in my life; you at EAG have made the car buying experience fun! We did the deal in 15 minutes on the phone, the purchase,trade and transportation to and from were all worked out on Tuesday and Sunday I had my beautiful '09 M3! All, without a hitch.
You know BMW's !
You treat me like I understand the cars!
You deliver courteous,professional service!
Your product is delivered as it were a new car!
My rating: ******!
I look forward to my next car buying experience, of course, with Enthusiast Auto Group!!!
What a very pleasant experience discovering and purchasing from Enthusiast Auto Group! I have never purchased a car without seeing and driving it first. My discussions with Eric and the multiple pictures of the car I was considering buying convinced me that I was dealing with a totally honest, knowledgeable, and trustworthy group of BMW M car enthusiasts. The price is justified by the extreme quality and preparation of the cars they offer for sale, and the very professional way in which they handle the sale and the paperwork. I am very happy with the very low mileage, beautiful 2011 M3 sedan I purchased! Everyone thinks I bought a brand new BMW due to its pristine condition. I have already recommended Enthusiast Auto Group to my friends here in Southern California.
EAG was incredibly easy to work with. I knew I needed to get an E39 M5 because I was in love with the car and found EAG through my research. I heard great reviews about them anywhere I looked and when I decided it was time to buy a car, EAG was the first place I went. They treat their clients and cars with great care and stand behind all their work. Instead of trying to spend hours going around the used car website listings looking for a car that was a good deal and not riddled with issues, I bought from EAG because I knew I would be getting the car I wanted in the same condition it was when it was in the showroom. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for their dream M car.
I have been in the market for an E46 M3 for some time. I did my due diligence and researched this model's areas of concern. Sure, I found some models that answered some of my questions and met my ideal price point but what I didn't have was peace of mind....I discovered Enthusiast Auto online and what I found were unique cars (colors, options etc), that were hand picked, with an extensive history and my questions/concerns answered in full disclosure...My wife and I reached out to Evan and began conversing with him off and on for about five weeks. He was a consummate gentleman with his patience, honesty, and quick response...We made the trip down to Cincy, from Columbus, and when we arrived he had three of the vehicles, we expressed interest in, backed in and prepped for test drives. I found my car immediately-a titanium silver 2004 M3 with the BMW Competition Package wheels. My mind was virtually made up. Evan walked us around the car answering every question. In addition, he didn't try up-selling us into a more expensive model-how refreshing! We then took it out for twenty five minutes and it was done! There was no haggling, no back and forth with management-a truly comfortable purchasing experience. I mentioned that I'd like to have my iPod connected so I can have some music at my beckon call.
Without hesitation he had the car pulled into the garage and an adapter put in free of charge (along with a t-shirt for me and my two nuggets-thanks again). Side note; we had an issue with our X5 run flats and he pointed us in the right direction to remedy the situation...again, thanks!!!
I'm a firm believer in that you get what you pay for. I have a solid, beautiful, spotless, silver M3 which looks and smells brand new. In addition, I have peace of mind with my new car and the people behind it.
It's worth every penny! My thanks to Evan and his staff at EAG. Look forward to doing business again!
I decided I wanted and E46 M3 this past summer and began my search for a car. I visited the Enthusiast site a couple of times but was searching for a deal. After several months of looking and learning about potential problems with a 10-12 year old E46 M3 I came back to Evan and Enthusiast. Over many conversations with Evan and picking out the “one I wanted” I flew to Cincinnati for a look see. I was blown away by the number of cars he had and Evan's knowledge about the cars. We drove several and ended up with the “one I wanted”. It was a 2005 6sp coupe with the competition package and 23,000 miles. We closed the sale and I drove 585 miles back home.
Over the years(I am 70)I have owned Porsche, Mercedes Benz, BMW, and Corvette. This car is the best of the bunch. I could not be happier with the car. The exterior, interior and mechanical are like new. It is the only “fun car” I own that my wife will ride in as long as I stay in wife mode.
Evan and his guys go the extra mile to provide great customer service. When I was getting ready to drive away, I asked Even if there was a way for me to play Pandora for the ride home. With the snap of a finger one of his guys had me ready to go in 5 minutes with a connector for my iphone.
I want to thank Evan and Enthusiast for a great buying experience. I only wish I was closer so he could maintain the car for me.
For those reading this, let me start off by saying this is not the first vintage car I've bought, actually it is one of many, but what makes this car different for me is that this is the first BMW I've ever bought. This era M car was a new venture for me and one I was glad to acquire through EAG due to their experience with these cars which I am a novice at. I drive my cars, they don't sit for long in garages collecting dust, so a solid drivers car was what I was looking for and this car from EAG has delivered.
This is the first time I've ever bought an older car without flying out to see the car and inspect the car myself. It is also the first time I've bought an older car from a company rather than an individual, I believe this was the best and most direct way to acquire this particular special performance car. Since my overall knowledge of these rare E24 M cars was limited, EAG gave me confidence I wouldn't have otherwise had buying this era of BMW.
The initial inquiry on this car was handled by Eric and we spoke for some length about the car, its number of prior owners, general condition and what had been done to the car while at EAG etc. What followed next was an email with many photos of the car to give an idea of its condition (it should be noted this was a very objective collection all flaws clearly pointed out), items included with the car, it's service records from prior owners and the list of items that were serviced since arriving to EAG.
The experience EAG has with these cars was important as there was an item I noticed while reviewing the photos sent which I addressed in a follow up discussion which Eric. He was familiar with this particular issue with this era car and was able to assure correction to my satisfaction prior to agreeing to purchase. This was not a simple thing to take care of and the work done was exceptional. I will not get into the details to keep our mutual business confidential, but suffice it to say this was an expense to EAG and their commitment to doing the job the right way was certainly appreciated. Also of note, which is common of older cars, the car had several issues spontaneously appear during its ongoing work at the EAG shop nothing to be afraid of, older cars do this type of thing, it was either going to happen while at EAG or to me after arrival. In this case they occurred while still at EAG and with these two instances Eric called and updated me letting me know that they would be corrected prior to their signing off on delivery of the car. Again, not simple inexpensive corrections, both were done to the high standards EAG projects among BMW owners who have provided prior testimonials. I cannot stress enough how much of a difference this made in the buying experience to know the car was being bought from a company familiar with the car to the point they would get it "right" without issue prior to delivery so all I had to do was enjoy it when it arrived.
When the car was finally complete and ready for delivery it was carried by a very nice clean and professional independent transporter who was familiar to EAG and I was very satisfied with how the final hand off of the car occured. The gentleman was very careful with unloading items that came with the car and the car itself.
I am comfortable offering my most favorable endorsement and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a BMW to enjoy as a daily driver or to add to a collection. A business develops its reputation regarding ethics and personal standard by building on its acts and consistency, I feel EAG lived up to what has been described by their prior customers testimonials I've read. Mine can be added to this growing list. Good luck with all future transactions EAG!
I'm sure I am one of the the few people to purchase a non-BMW from EAG, but I cannot recommend them enough. I found my Lexus IS-F in an online ad and from my first contact to driving out of the lot, Evan and the EAG team offered great service, accurate information, and a seamless purchase process.
This was my first performance "fun" vehicle purchase and living in Texas, I initially had some trepidation about purchasing vehicle from out of state, but with the documentation, pre-purchase inspection, and countless pictures EAG provided, the experience was as strait forward as it could get.
If my pocket book allows, I would definitely do business with them again in the future!
I don't really know where to begin with my review of EAG. I can start by saying, "This group of folks are really a breath of fresh air in the automotive world."
A couple of weeks ago, I decided to treat myself to a "hard to find" BMW M2. I responded to a listing that EAG had on AutoTrader, and became quick friends with Eric, though he might say I became a quick pain in the neck instead. That's no exaggeration either as I think I asked him (and his team) no less than 2.6 million questions, all of which were answered quickly, professionally, and with the utmost patience. I live in CA. EAG is located in OH, and I have never before bought a vehicle from out of state, sight unseen, hence all of my questions to them.
Eric and the gang made the purchase and delivery process as smooth as silk. The car I bought showed up here just 3 days later, exactly as promised, in exactly the manner and condition I was promised, and I couldn't be more pleased with what was delivered to me or with EAG. My only regret in the entire deal is that I will likely never get to meet my new friends or go into their facility for a visit and/or service.
If you're thinking about buying a vehicle from EAG, do not hesitate, they're consummate professionals who are committed to their process and their craft and will take the very best care of you.
Here's looking forward to a lasting relationship with many future purchases/sales to come.
