Eric and company at Enthusiast Auto are outstanding to work with. We bought our E30 sight unseen knowing these guys (who are the experts) had gone over the car thoroughly. The car has lived up to our high expectations!
The buying process is organized and efficient, the entire team is easy to communicate with, and calls are returned promptly even after the sale. I have dealt with several other classic car shops and these guys make it easy.
I had been searching for a clean BMW M for some while. Finally found a E-34 BMW M5 at EAG. First time I've bought a car without inspecting it first. EAG's outstanding reputation and feedback persuaded me to give it a try. Car arrived yesterday as promised. The car was everything I hoped for + more. It's in immaculate condition. They had taken great care in ensuring that car was delivered in a safe manner, with a tank full of gas ready to enjoy. I've been walking around with a big grin on my face ever since she was delivered. I took her out for a test spin last night, and she performed flawlessly. Eric and the folks over at EAG are great to deal with and they deliver their Bavarian products with German precision. This is what dealing sports cars is all about. They will go out of their way in making sure that the customer is 100% satisfied. Highly recommended. Best buying experience ever!!!
The DB7 we bought from EAG was everything we had hoped for and more. We appreciate the hundreds of detailed photos you sent of the car, the time you spent discussing the car with us, and your meticulous assessment of what the car might need to make it even better. Our DB7 just won first place in the Rochester UK Car Day 2014 concours, and our XJS V12 won second place. Thank you!
The team at Enthusiast Auto caters to the M Enthusiast in every regard. From first contact to delivery, my all around experience could not have been better. Eric and his team educated me on the process, assuaged my concerns and following delivery, were quick to thoroughly respond to questions. Suffice it to say, the car arrived in the condition as described over numerous phone and email correspondence; with full documentation. Just wish I could take the car to Enthusiast Auto for service.
I've waited to write to you and officially let you know how my first "sight unseen" purchase went because I bought another identical M roadster and wanted the full comparison. The difference of how EAG handles the process is night and day compared to other dealers! I can't thank you enough for your integrity and honesty. It was a very foreign concept for me, but you guys made me a believer. I would never buy another car without seeing it first unless it was from EAG! If I did for some reason need to, I would ship it to you first! You've earned a customer for life and for the folks that know me, that's a big deal. I have a thing for Z4M roadsters and am still looking to add to the pair I have now, I just hope they come up for sale at EAG!Please tell everyone at EAG how much I appreciate the car and purchase process!
I originally worked with Eric to sell my 2001 M Coupe to Enthusiast Auto. I did not want to go through selling it on my own. Owning and enjoying it for over 10 years made it tough to part with, so it was comforting that it would be going to a good home. I had never dealt with Enthusiast before so had not looked over their website before negotiating the sale of my M Coupe. In the process I was browsing the cars for sale and fell in love with a 2003 M5. It had the same interior colors (red/black) as my M Coupe! So my sale turned into a trade-in! In the process we decided to do a little Dinan work before they sent my car. After I had driven the car 300 miles the brake light came on. I called Eric and he immediately offered to send the parts and pay for the local BMW shop to install. That is what I call standing behind your product! If I knew how much I would enjoy my car I would have bought an E39 M5 long ago. Originally planned to make it my weekend fun car like the M Coupe, but over the past 6 weeks it has become my daily driver while my Scion FRS sits at home. Perhaps I need two M5s
Eric, Blaire, Josh and the EAG team are fantastic. I can't recommend them strongly enough.
I shopped for almost 18 months for my ideal M-Coupe (red with a manual transmission). I connected early with EAG and they kept a watchful eye out for me in my price range. We found the car and I traded my automatic Z-3 coupe with them for my "new to me" red M-Coupe. During the 18 months several coupes piqued my interest but in the end I bought from EAG because of their reputation. I have taken great comfort that EAG thoroughly vetted the car and corrected deficiencies expertly, they lived up to their reputation. A humorous aside is that I overlooked the characteristics of the sound system. About 75 miles out of Cincinnati I tired to insert a CD but could not find the slot. I called Eric to ask assistance and he told me it only played cassettes. 1999 was in a transition time between cassettes and CD's and this particular car had the cassette. I jokingly fussed with Eric that EAG forgot to give me some cassettes to listen to during my drive to NC. I love my Z-3 M Coupe and look forward to many years of enjoyment.Thanks EAG
I'm not one who writes hotel reviews on Trip Advisor nor do I review restaurants on Yelp, movies on Netflix, or books on Amazon. I never respond to emails from various airlines or hotel chains to let them know “how we did” during recent travels.
However, the recent purchase of a pristine 2004 M3 convertible from Eric and Evan has changed all that! I am now a REVIEWER!! And one with an enormous grin on his face every time he twists the ignition key and hears that marvelous engine roar to life. Or takes a corner at twice the speed he might in his daily driver. Or lowers the top on a beautiful Vermont summer evening.
For anyone considering the purchase of an M car….stop right here!! Look no further. Buy from these guys. They know more about these cars than anyone on the planet. They find the right ones and then thoroughly sort them so by the time the car's in your hands everything that should be done has been done. You may think you're paying a premium for their efforts but I suspect buying an M car that hasn't been subjected to their level of scrutiny would likely cost a whole lot more.
Though the boys tell me most buyers purchase their cars sight unseen and have them shipped I would suggest you treat yourself and check out their operation first hand. And meet the mechanics who have worked on your car, pick up some hints from the body shop guys, and even hit them up for a free lunch (OK…they offered, I never had to ask). But for goodness sake don't leave without checking out their private stash of BMWs.
If you're in the market for an M car hop on a plane and check them out. And enjoy not only the car you'll buy from them but your new friends at Enthusiast auto.
This a 1st class operation altogether. Evan and Eric were constant professionals from the minute I called to the minute I drove my 2004 M3 off their lot. The car was ready for delivery when they said it was and was EXACT to the description conveyed to me over the phone upon seeing it in person. I respect their no haggle approach and I left feeling that my purchase was of high quality and value. Both gentleman were very knowledgeable and you could tell they were passionate about BMW. This is a well rounded operation. I love their 1st right of refusal policy that really shows they care about the entire time frame of ownership of a car you purchase from them. If you are buying ANY BMW at all and you do not give these guys a chance to earn your business then you are doing yourself a huge dis-service. Thanks fellas!
After looking for months for an investment quality E30 M3 I finally found Enthusiast Auto Group. Eric at EAG was able to steer me in the right direction quickly based on my needs and budget. I found the whole experience to be easy and the support unmatched. I am thrilled with my purchase and I plan to be a long term customer of EAG.
