My new 2001 M Coupe arrived safely right on time, and it is a HOOT. Based on your reputation and our no-nonsense telephone conversations, I elected to buy this car from you sight-unseen and I can report full satisfaction with that decision. You responded promptly to my initial inquiry and spent much more time than I had expected familiarizing me with your company and with this particular car.
As you surely know, people who are willing to buy sight unseen usually have a pretty clear idea of what they are looking for and the car on your lot either is or is not that car. At no time did I feel you were trying to “make a sale”; rather, I felt you were introducing me to this vehicle in a bona fide effort to see if it was the one I was looking for. As it turned out, it was and the transaction could not have gone more smoothly.
I appreciated your ultra-thorough inspection of the car and your identifying issues needing immediate or future attention. The work I asked you to perform was timely and correct.
In short, the car rolled out of the transporter's enclosed trailer in just the shape I wanted it in. Please assure the prior owners that their baby has found a good home. I will, in turn, be happily referring all (jealous) inquirers to Enthusiast Auto Group.
Thank you Sir and thank your fine staff
Eric, Evan and the entire Enthusiast Auto Group, My wife and I would like to thank all of you for an incredible buying experience.
For several months we've been searching for a 2006 325ixT, preferably non-silver. Locally this car didn't seem to exist but we were reluctant to buy sight-unseen from an out of state private owner or dealership. Past experience has proved this to be an invitation to a disaster as too many people have chosen to take advantage of that situation.
As we've read Bimmer and Roundel we've noticed that Mike Miller has been most generous in his compliments concerning your business. Since we believe Mike to be a no BS type of person we visited your web site, saw the inventory, read your business philosophy and all of the testimonials. At your web site we discovered exactly the car we wanted; a 2006 white 325ixT, beige interior, no idrive, no run-flats and meticulously kept. It was a major plus when we read this vehicle was the personal car of the owner's wife. We contacted Eric and based on an hour-long conversation, committed to buy the car. We described our trade-in, received an honest amount and drove to Cincinnati from St.Petersburg, FL the following week.
While completing the transaction at Enthusiast Auto Group we were introduced to the staff and technicians, given a tour of the properties, and saw a yard-full of spotless M cars. We were made to feel like friends not two-legged checkbooks. All went well on the trip home and the car was and is all we expected.
However, arriving home we noted one small item that needed to be addressed. We notified Eric, had the item rectified at our local independent shop and by the time we got back home we had an e-mail from EAG saying they would, of course, cover the bill from our local shop.
As many others before us have said if you're in the market for a BMW especially one of the M persuasion, see Eric at EAG. The way we were treated has convinced us we will be return customers.
I started out looking for a low mileage E46 330ci ZHP manual transmission. After looking at the available cars in state and on the BMWCCA classified site, I discovered the Enthusiast Auto Groups website.
Having just sold an E36/7 Z3 roadster I was immediately drawn to the M roadsters and coupes. I requested information on over a dozen cars over the next week. Evan was patiently answering my questions about each and every car. I settled on the very nice E46M3 convertible 6speed manual in Mystic Blau. I spoke with Evan on the phone about the car and he was extremely knowledgeable about the care and maintenance of BMW's in general. The photo documentation was superb. The history of the car was completely in line with my own research. When the car arrived by covered transport a week later I was surprised because it actually looked better than I expected for a pre-owned nine year old car! I was initially reluctant to buy a car sight unseen and certainly could have flown out to pick up the car and drive it home, however, the experience was so transparent from start to finish that I was confidant in my decision. Evan, Ryan and Blaire have renewed my faith in the purchase of used cars. Anyone considering the purchase of pre-owned BMW should seriously look at what they have to offer. I plan on keeping this car for a long time, but, if I was in the market I would but from EAG again!
Thank you for a very positive buying experience with my M3. The detailed photographs and complete maintanence history and provided a better understanding of the vehicle online than I would have at a local dealer. Enthusiast Auto cherry pick these vehicles for their condition and low miles and then your shop does a thorough inspection of the vehicle and repairs any issues present or likely to happen for a truly turn-key vehicle. While this may cost a bit more up front, it certainly worth it to me to have a vehicle with no surprises. I was pleasantly surprised how seamless the shipping of my M3 to Minnesota as well as the shipping of my trade in to you. I spent less time on this transaction overall than I would have going to a local dealer. Thank you again for a great experience. I will be back!
I recently purchased a low milage 2004 BMW M3 from Enthusiast Auto Group. It took me months to find the car I desired and I found it with Enthusiast. My car was in excellent condition and my dealings with Enthusiast were without reproach. Everything that I was told about my car was true and more. I don't know where I would of been able to find an M3 in such good condition. Evan was a tremendous help and has followed thru with all questions that I have had about my new car. Enthusiast was able to handle everything with my purchase including the transportation to California. I can't praise Enthusiast enough and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a quality low milage M3.
I started my quest to get back into a E46 M3 about six weeks ago. As my first E46 M3 experience didn't go as well as I would have hoped, I was admittedly cautious about the M3. As I began the process of looking for the right car, checking and double-checking service history's and vehicle history reports, little did I know that one call to Evan at Enthusiast Auto would be all the help I would need. Almost immediately, Evan gained my trust and illustrated why Enthusiast Auto has the reputation that they do. By walking through each car that I was interested in, the details of the car's history's, and narrowing down the choices, Evan worked patiently while I made plans to visit EAS in-person. Once at the dealership, Evan knew exactly what cars I was considering and came prepared to answer any remaining questions. Once the deal was done, the entire staff at EAG made the Saturday afternoon feel like a small vacation, albeit one I was ending in a E46 M3. Evan, Eric, and the rest of the EAG team have earned a customer for life.
I finally own my "realistic" dream car :-D!!! And I owe many many thanks to Evan at Enthusiast Auto Group. I have been searching for a clean E46 M3 for many many years. But had to put my search hold after I had my son. Well he is now almost 4 and alot more mobile :) So I started my hunt again. After being disappointing in everything I was finding locally I decided to expand my search for maybe 2-3 hours away. Well we went to look at a few and they were complete nightmares. Peoples project cars gone bad or dealers selling something they didn't even know what they had. NIGHTMARE. So as a last resort I started searching with no limit on distance. This whole time I was searching on Auto Trader and similar sites. Still finding nothing that seemed worth my time. Then I just did a random google search for E46 M3's for sale and found Enthusiast Auto!! So I called.. not really having much faith anymore. But after speaking with Evan for awhile I realized he was on the same page as I was and had a passion for these cars. Then after seeing ALL of the detailed pictures and invoices he provides you with to ensure you that you are getting the car he is describing was even more wonderful! He never made me feel rushed on the phone or pressured and would answer every little question I had! Also sent me more pictures when I asked for them. So we took the risk and bought a flight for my fiance to go up and inspect/drive the car. He was even more impressed with the way they handled everything. They picked him up from the airport... made sure he understood everything about the car and walked him through everything before leaving. The 6+ hr drive home he said he enjoyed because the car was so solid and fun to drive!! When he got home with the car I was in heaven!! It was beautiful!! Evan said that his photos were meant to make the imperfections stand out.. well I now knew what he meant. Because I couldn't even notice the flaws he had taken pictures of!! And beyond the appearance the car drives like a dream!! Everyone who has seen my new BMW thinks I have purchased a new one because its so clean looking and drives so smooth!! I am so happy with my decision and with everyone at Enthusiast Auto and will recommend them to everyone looking for a quality car and amazing experience!! Thank you again <3
Dear Eric, I wanted to take this post sale opportunity to reach out
to you and both commend and thank you for an excellent and professional buying
experience. You clearly preside over an operation that radiates unmatched
specialty car knowledge, expertise, and experience that, in laser like fashion,
focuses on a classic brand. Throughout the entire process your passion,
commitment to quality, and concern for "next owner experience" was
crystal clear to me and much appreciated. Although I've not yet owned the car
long enough to draw all my conclusions, as an owner of many classics, my
experience with Enthusiast Auto Group is as good as it gets! Thanks,
When I first began searching for a vehicle I actually left the E46 M3 off my list because most that I found were simply not in a condition that I would have liked. I had read all kinds of stories about used E46 M3s and just had serious concerns and doubts given their age at this time. I was actually searching for a 135i in excellent condition as I thought that was a more realistic option. However, as time provides finding solutions on the internet, I ran across EAG's website. Immediately I thought of the old adage “if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.” I perused the website several times before I decided to give them a call. Evan and I spoke for an hour and he answered every one of my questions with an honesty and forthrightness that was refreshing. There was no sales pitch or coercing me to purchase anything. Evan simply spoke with me about M3s and everything he knew and what EAG did to ensure their vehicles are meticulously chosen for purchase and serviced before they left his hands.
Fast forward six weeks later and I had decided on a 2006 Carbon Black/Cinnamon E46 M3 ZCP. Evan again went through the entire car with me and sent more photos than I could have imagined in addition to a full work order and car history report. Again, he provided a level of honesty and forthrightness that I had never experienced in the car-buying business. Once it came time for delivery or pickup, my dad and I decided it would be worthwhile to drive the 500 miles from Charlotte to Cincinnati simply to meet Evan and visually see the EAG operation. I could not have been more impressed and delighted with what I saw and experienced. After giving me a walk around of my car, Evan showed us the entire operation and we ended up spending a couple of hours there. My dad was so impressed that he has a piqued interest in an M Roadster in the future. Evan even answered all his questions about M Coupes and M Roadsters just as he did with me and E46 M3s. In the end, I would advise anyone that has any reservations about buying a used vehicle from these guys to rest at ease. I am actually envious of the BMW owners in the Cincinnati area that have an outfit like EAG as their regular BMW service provider. Hey Evan and Eric, open up a shop in Charlotte!
I purchased a 2002 E39 M5 Enthusiast Auto Group sight unseen! Being that I am from California this was at first nerve racking for me but after talking to Eric I decided to go purchase the car. Eric explained the whole process from choosing a Car, Inspection, Detailing and Transport. Eric also sent 40 plus pictures of the car as well as official receipts for the maintenance. I then had it transported from the dealership to me in a matter of weeks. The whole process was easy and enjoyable. Plus the car was Phenomenal!
