What Our Customers Say About Us!

Eric, thank you for an incredibly smooth, 'no stories' transaction! I recently sold my '95 Lightweight (just didn't drive it enough due to no a/c and living in Texas) and was looking for a replacement e36 M3. Having been a fan of the e36 M3 now for about 10 years, i really wanted one with all the right goodies to replace the LTW. I've known about and have been watching Enthusiast Auto's inventory for a while now and saw this '98 M3 Dinan S3. Having had a bit of experience with EAG in the past (my friend bought a car from them, both the car and experience were flawless), I got a hold of Eric about the car. As usual, Eric was super knowledgeable about this car, it was a repeat visitor and had a seriously long list of every possible e36 M3 problem area already addressed. Detailed pictures with a complete service history documentation were sent to me immediately, along with a detailed 'walk around' of the car (I'm in Houston, Texas, so was a sight unseen purchase). The best part was, I was heading overseas at the end of the week, Eric and his team (Ryan and Blaire) did an absolutely incredible job of organizing transport and getting the car to me in 3 days from OH to Texas(!), a day before leaving town, so that I could drive it for a day. Absolutely incredibly thoughtful on their part, and a great transport company (Assured Motor Transport) to bat. The car showed up. Exactly as Eric described and in immaculate condition. If you are looking for a no stories used BMW, EAG, in my opinion, is the only place in the US that will provide this to you. I would especially recommend EAG to those who are not local and have apprehensions about purchasing a high performance M-Car sight unseen, you won't be disappointed. Thanks Eric and EAG! My only regret is that you aren't local for me to bring you the car to service when needed!

I was looking for this model for a long time, after looking for references of EAG on bimmerforums and complaint board I decided to take the plane, visit this place and spend a weekend driving through Kentucky. I carried a check "just in case" and after trying the car with Eric I wrote the price and signed. Two months later, I'm absolutely satisfied with the purchase. The transport van up to Miami was superb, and the dedication of the team arranging all the papers until I got the title in Miami made me very grateful. Dont expect bargains, but a fair price for a top maintained car.

I am not in the habit of making expensive purchases sight unseen (except for photos) over the phone, but that's exactly what I did here, and with very happy results. It started with a phone call that was answered by Eric Keller, the owner of Enthusiast Auto Group, who gave me a detailed course on the history of his company, BMW Z8s, and Z8 Alpinas. I bought a low-mileage 2003 Z8 Alpina from him a few days later. I'm glad I did. The car arrived about a week later on a covered truck. It was exactly as advertised”in flawless condition, with all the papers, accessories and gadgets in the trunk. It turned out that there was one little problem with the car that had escaped the careful inspection Eric's team had given it: the right door lock didn't work. Eric immediately sent me a part that seemed the likely culprit. It turns out that a different part had failed, and it was replaced at Enthusiast's expense by a local dealer. Given that the car was sold “as is,” I suppose Enthuasiast had no legal obligation to pick up the tab for this correction, but they didn't hesitate to make things right. That's integrity”with a capital “I.” Unsurprisingly, I love the car. Equally, I'm delighted with my experience in selecting and purchasing it from Enthusiast Auto Group. They did what they said they would do, and when they said it would be done. The car was beautifully prepared for delivery, and was honestly and accurately represented. The whole transaction was a pleasure.

Evan, Ryan, Josh and Eric, Josh and I would like to thank all of you for your help, patience and care in purchasing the BMW M3. The car is everything and more than Josh could have imagined. He is very happy with the car to say the least. The truck had an issue and was delayed in Fort Lauderdale so Josh had me take me there to get the car...he could not wait any longer. As you all were aware, I had concerns with purchasing such a car as this without ever seeing it. Evan was very reassuring and put my mind at ease. Everyone working at your company is trusting and honest and goes out of their way to make the customer feel like they are important. Thank you again!

It is only when you have had the pleasure of purchasing a select BMW from Eric and the team at Enthusiast Auto Group that you understand why this is THE place to go for a pre-owned BMW, especially those with the M badge. I've had success in purchasing CPO BMWs from dealers in the past, but when it came time for my first M car, I decided to give EAG a try. I had heard a lot of good things from other enthusiasts and EAG always seems to have a terrific selection of low-mileage, pristine examples of Bavaria's finest. I was leaning toward an M3, but became fatally attracted to the M Coupe. The beautiful lines and low sales volume overcame the impracticality of a 2 seater. After several conversations with Eric, my wife and I made the long distance purchase of a 2006 M Coupe. Rather than ship the car to New York, we decided to book a one-way flight to Cincinnati and enjoy an extended road trip with the new acquisition. It was the easiest time we've had purchasing a car. EAG arranged to pick us up from the airport and when we arrived, the paperwork was already taken care of. The only downside was that it rained the entire two day drive back home. Once back in New York I noticed one of the headlamps fogged with moisture. I contacted Eric hoping to work out some comprise on a replacement unit, knowing that we purchased the vehicle ‘as is' and we failed to notice it during our pre-purchase inspection. This is where Eric differentiates himself from the rest. No questions, no argument. He immediately offered to send a brand new headlamp assembly and only asked that I send back the damaged unit. This is the only place I would buy a pre-owned BMW in the future. I only wish that I lived closer so that EAG could also service and maintain all my BMWs.

Just wanted to take a minute and let you know I couldn't be more satisfied with my new M Roadster. I've only put a few hundred miles on it so far, but it already rivals anything I've owned when it comes to cool, fun, and fast. And importantly, I have to compliment you on the whole purchase process --- start to finish. I've never bought anything sight unseen of this level before. Your help during the selection process, including the clarity with which you described the specifics about this particular car, was a huge value in the process. I appreciated the honesty with which you described the car, the disclosures about the car, etc --- and in every way, now that I've had a chance to get to know the car and look it over closely, it has exceeded my expectations. You mentioned that your business is built on reputation. Hats off to you and the Enthusiast Auto team. I am indeed a satisfied customer and you deserve the great reputation you've developed. I've attached a couple pics of my M in it's new home, where I expect it will be pampered for a long time to come.

Evan and Eric, thank you both very much for a smooth transaction and trade in. Of all the dealerships I went to in search of a dual purpose sports car, you both had the most energy, care, and passion, which greatly reflects in the high quality M3 that I bought from you. Also, I greatly appreciate you making yourself available for follow up questions, and timely responses. Driving home to Chicago with my Dad and brother after picking up the car, we were truly impressed beyond our expectations of the M3. I cannot wait to unleash the car full throttle on the track next year! Looking forward to seeing you again, whether at the track or at your shop. After looking at M cars for two years, I found what I believe to be the premium place to purchase and maintain your car.
Ken Wittenberg, Chicago, IL - 10.01.2012
Eric, thank you very much for your great service in purchasing the vehicle I had for sale. It was time for this M Roadster to go to someone else to enjoy as much as we have. The transaction was fast, smooth and worry free. I will recommend your service to anyone looking to sell or buy a car as I know they will be treated fairly and with respect.

Eric, it was truly a pleasure working with you on my trade in and purchase of a “very special” LSB Z3 M Coupe. After this purchase, I have two S54 M Coupes and as I told you over the phone the new car is truly a piece of art! Enthusiast Auto continues to bring in and market stellar examples of BMW M cars. Combine that with knowledge, honesty and integrity and you have the ultimate used car buying opportunity. The used car market is scary and unreliable to say the least. The niche that your business model has created has made buying a used M car a satisfying and positive experience. I must say I am one of the pickiest people on earth when it comes to my cars, so for people like me Enthusiast Auto is the ONLY place to buy!!

Wanted to thank you and your extend team for all of the support and confidence that was extended to me during the purchase of my new 1999 M3. I had been searching for a pristine 99 M3 for about a year and followed your website during the last 6 months. Fortunately the white 99 w/ supercharger looked like it would fit the bill (low mileage, 2-owner car w/ a novel of receipts). During our early conversations your product experience and experts specific to M-class BMWs provided me with the confidence to purchase the car sight unseen. Upon delivery of the car your team proved they know how to do it right: Ryan Shipping: handled all of the shipping details and resolved a small change with no impact to me Blaire admin support: handled all of the transaction paper work and processed the title w/in a week Josh Service Mgr: provided support for an unanticipated service issue ‘seat”, that was quickly resolved and covered by your team And let's not forget the car: looks and drives like it came out of a time machine, no scratches, dimples, wheel marks etc, truly amazing condition. Thanks for making the purchase such a pleasure, I look forward to my next EAG purchase(s).
