In 2001 when the E46 M3 debuted, I was only 16 years old, but it was love at first sight. It became my one and only dream car. I honestly never thought it would be attainable but after graduating and a year of working as an engineer I started realizing it was a possibility. Early on in my search, I heard of Eric and Evan and the guys from Enthusiast Auto when my best friend (who comes from a family that collectively owns four M3s) found them in his own quest. I had the pleasure of meeting the brothers when my friend purchased his 1999 E36 M3. I was thoroughly impressed with their knowledge of BMWs and the business, but most of all their commitment to quality and excellence. Only a short time later I was on the market, and after spending a month on my own feeling frustrated with both private sales and other dealerships, I knew where I needed to go.  I have never felt more comfortable through a car buying process as I did with Eric and Evan. I ended up with a 2004 Titanium Silver E46 M3 and for the past year and a half I have lived out my teenage dream. I have only had two extremely minor issues with the car that have totaled to about as much as a couple oil changes while two friends who decided to purchase similar E46 M3s elsewhere have had their car in and out of the shop. I certainly plan on working with Eric and Evan for any of my future BMW needs. My advice to others who are on the market for any used BMW is not just to look to Eric and Evan, but don't even waste your time going anywhere else. You won't regret it. I sure haven't.

Hi Evan & Eric, First off, thanks again for the 750Li!  Since purchase, we have enjoyed the new ride tremendously.  As you know, when shopping for a vehicle, I was debating a bit between a little more self-indulgence (02'Imola Red M5), and driving enjoyment coupled with an element of practicality (750Li).  We are very, very happy with our purchase (Nancy LOVES the car), but more than that, just want to say thank you again for your honest and thoughtful approach.  I can say without hesitation this was by far the most fun I've had shopping for a new vehicle. You actually make me want to purchase a car from you, just for the service that you offer!  So, job well done!  I actually look forward to having you service the vehicle, which I have never, ever said about a shop before.  Rock on dudes....

I have never written a recommendation but find that in the case of Enthusiast Auto, it would be a significant over site on my part to not do so.  I have kept up with them from their website for more than a year and had realized before I made the trip to Cincinnati that I was in for a positive experience.  Nothing could have prepared me for the reality.  Eric and Evan were knowledgeable about M's in general but when it came to their cars it was amazing what they knew. They have a very high standard in everything they do from the parts they use to the people they choose to do business with.  
Bob Stearman, Louisville, KY
Just wanted you and Evan to know I got the car home in tip top shape, though it can no longer be a rain virgin! But I don't think there was any salt around yet, so the most that happened was it got a little damp. I also wanted to thank you for a really nice buying experience and, of course, for the great car. It is exactly as described, and drives beautifully. It's a pleasure doing business with guys like you and your brother. I'm certain we'll do some car stuff in future years.

I got this wonderful bug about collecting cars for past 10 years. I like mostly older ones with attention 60's and early 70's Porsches. But I also have a E39 M5 that stood a bit lonely between my other cars. So far a total of 14 of Porsches, Mercedes and Land Rovers are in the collection. In acquiring each one there was a learning experience, some good, some not so good.  Anyways, I was playing with the idea of getting an original E28 M5 to put some history next to my E39 M5.  After researching, I found Eric of EAG BMW.  He was very nice talking to me about some options and he would keep me posted if he found what I was looking for.  I noticed he has wealth of information about BMWs and was extremely professional.   So few months past. I was looking at his website and found an Avus Blue E36 M3 sunroof delete model.  By the way, EAG has the largest collection of M series BMW's in the country as far as I know.  I asked him about this car and he took his time and very accurately walked me through the history of the car as well as the pros and cons of a 95 OBD1 model vs a 96+ OBD2.  I felt very comfortable.  I felt that he is extremely honest and price is right.  So I went for it, then I experienced something that I never had before with my other cars and other dealers.  Before shipping the car to me in California, he wanted to test drive the car beforehand one last time.  After that test drive, he called me and said everything is good but he noticed few things.  Like tires are a bit dried up.  He wanted to change them all to new ones.  Also the brakes had half-life left on them but front brakes make some noise.  But he wants to change all breaks front and back plus rotors on his dime.  I was so happy to hear that.  So EAG spent an additional $2K at least for new tires and breaks.  Then we talked about a car cover and trickle charger.  Sure enough he surprised me by including them in the car when I received it.  I received the car and it was all the way exceeded all my expectations and was as he described.  Not only that, he then connected me with a best mechanic in the bay area for future needs (Dinan).  What a great experience.  I am looking forward to future business transactions with EAG.
Farbod Aram, Los Altos, CA
I have been a BMW enthusiast since college when I got my first BMW, an 1987 E30 325i.  I currently own 7 BMWs, including the 1988 E30 M3 I recently purchased from Enthusiast Auto Group site unseen.  When I received the car, it was actually better than advertised.  Eric made the transaction extremely easy.  He answered every question honestly, and even disclosed information that most people wouldn't.  The delivery service that Eric used was quick, reasonable, professional, and extremely courteous.  I can honestly say that I'll be back to purchase another BMW from Enthusiast Auto.  A wonderful experience all around.  Its nice to deal with a company that puts a premium on quality, integrity, and customer service.  Thanks again.  All the Best,

I found the perfect stock 1997 E36 M3 sedan with Enthusiast Auto Group. It was a long 9-11 month search that started with private sellers on the east coast, Craigslist and even eBay..but each visit ended as complete disappointment.  Every E36 M3 I came across had the abuse sticker written all over it as it was hidden deep beneath the fresh paint these sellers used to impress me. They flatter you with upgrades, superchargers, exhausts, all kinds of mods..which YES.. sounds exciting - but depending on who did the work and how the car was driven/maintained..all of these things could have destroyed a car that was already built to perfection. Without question..it is very hard to find a car like this (STOCK only) that hasn't had everything "modded".  This wasn't going to be easy!! Many months into my search I had almost given up hope until I came across Enthusiast Auto and talking with Eric K..  I did my research and asked around on the ///M forums and I began learning that this was indeed a great company..it's family owned and managed by great people who know their cars. If you don't believe it..by all means ask around and you will hear some great things about these guys and user's experiences on these forums. Sure - There are always going to be used BMWs for sale out there but you can tell that these guys are very meticulous about their cars, knowledgeable, and extremely selective of the cars they choose to buy/sell.  My impression is that they choose cars that they would like for own for themselves. So with that said, you want to buy from these types of people.. AGAIN...I recommend asking around and then arranging a visit to see for yourself if you still have any doubts.  The cars can be a bit pricey compared to what some other folks are asking for but you have to understand that you ARE getting what you pay for with these guys..opposed to other sellers that will give you a lower figure but you pay for it a couple weeks into it..TRUST ME!! Not only did they provide me a detailed breakdown of the perfect-for-me black cosmos M3 sedan, they went out of their way to allow me to examine it as it was on the lift, explained everything step-by-step and even handed me the keys with confidence and said "have fun".  This meant everything to me as they trusted me with their car without even buying it !!   The owner of the shop even spent valuable time with me under the car pointing out all its good points and its few, imperfections. Even noticed things I had missed which is always helpful and he had his guys fix it on the spot.  It was the honesty Eric had that was so rare that had me shocked.  Again..it's hard reading this on a website and trying to believe this but these guys are a family owned business that is built on knowledge, passion, and trust.  I will be recommending Enthusiast Auto to all my friends and look forward to purchasing my next car from them...hopefully a e39 M5 one of these days.  So in closing...ask around - you won't be disappointed.  Any doubts?? - fly out there. (I did) and drove the car around for a half hour just to get a feel for it.  They perform a PPI for you so that is helpful but I was worried and purchased my own.  Looking at it now..i guess it was a waste of money but it might be worth it for you just to help you feel better or debating on flying out to visit.  It's your call on that...  When I saw the car - I couldn't resist after that...it just felt right and bought it on the spot.  Shipping?  Do it!!  They have a great shipping company called Specialty Mobile that delivered my car right to my doorstep!!  Thank you EAG for this great car!!

In October, I made my first online vehicle purchase with EAG. The experience was most pleasant especially after I discovered that I was buying my second E36 M3 Sedan from more of a BMW fanatic than myself. Eric and Evan's knowledge of the E36 impressed me and my rudimentary understanding and appreciation for how great these cars are. We should thank EAG for keeping solid M cars on the market. I received the car as promised, and its condition has more than exceeded my expectations. Most important to me and why I will never consider a used M car that hasn't been looked over by or that isn't being offered by EAG: Eric and Evan always pick up the phone, always reply to emails, and make their best effort to answer any and all questions, no matter how trivial. Thank you for that and all of your help Eric. I have no reservations about buying another M car from you, sight unseen.  If you'd ever like to use me as a reference on a conference call with you for a prospective customer, I'd be more than happy to.

Enthusiast Auto Group, I have been a car enthusiast my whole life and a fan of specialty cars in particular. It was long overdue for me to replace my Lexus with an M car and had been searching for several years for the one that both fit our budget and was fully sorted for long-term enjoyment. After some conversation with several BMW club members, I was referred exclusively the Enthusiast Auto. I was pleasantly surprised to see the various Roundel choices, especially the collection of Motorsport cars that are always in stock. After several conversations with Eric and Evan, I knew this was the place my next purchase would take place and I couldn't be happier. My tastefully modified Techno Violet M3 Sedan is art on wheels and is everything you told me it would be and more. Your honesty has prepared me for the few minor imperfections associated with my M3's 126k miles.  I will be returning to Enthusiast Auto for future services on both our Techno Violet M3 and our 2008 128i coupe. In a few years, I will be back for another M car purchase, maybe an early M5 or M coupe. Only time will tell. Thank you again for making the purchase so pleasant. Even more so, the thorough inspection and service history that came along with my purchase. I look forward to many years of enjoyment with "The Ultimate Driving Machine." Thank you again.

After looking for an M3 in New England with no luck, I widened my search and kept seeing all of the cars at EAG and decided to poke around the forums to see what comments were out there about EAG.  After looking around, I could not believe all of the positive comments so I decided to give them a call but buying a car sight un-seen did not excite me.  After talking with Eric, he put me totally at ease and I had complete confidence.  His knowledge of M3's is unbelievable so I knew he would give me the car I was looking for and not have to worry about it mechanically.  Eric treated me very well and I worked out a deal to trade my 330i and EAG would deliver my new car and drive mine back which was a real help to me.  Victoria and Matt made the trip in the biggest snow storm the East Coast has ever seen in October.  That is customer service! After the car was delivered, I can say that EAG exceeded my expectations.  The car was ultra clean just as Eric described.  Thanks EAG.
Ron Richard, Laconia, NH
It was a gratifying experience dealing with EAG.  You are a true professionals and car enthusiasts.  In regards to the M coupe, the car was better than presented.  It was a joy driving it back home.  They don't make them like these anymore!
Jorge Hine, Miami, FL
Here's the real deal on service. I've had my 92 E36 into EAG twice for service. On both occasions the problems were fix right the first time and the price was more than reasonable. I'm proud to say I wouldn't take my bimmer to any other service provider, ever. Unfortunately the damn car runs so well now I have no need to bring it in, thanks to EAG. I wish I could have you do a full performance upgrade because I drive by your lot everyday. Seeing the stunning cars only fuels my desire to one day own one of your vehicles. One day I promise!  BTW, I have no leaks in the garage.  Thanks Guys.
Chad Staunton, Cincinnati, OH
It is clear to me, having just sold my 1998 M3 to the Enthusiast Auto Group, that a more honest and straight forward group of guys will not be found. Working with Evan was so easy and enjoyable that I sort of wish I had more cars to sell.  They, judging from this experience, are honest car dealers. Crazy sounding perhaps, but true.
Paul Salvione, Williamsburg, VA
Enthusiast Auto Group of Cincinnati, Ohio deserves the highest commendation – and here's why:  in mid-2011 I did something most people would never do:  I bought a completely loaded 2011 335d with less than 14,000 miles sight unseen from Enthusiast 2,000 miles away.  Scary.  When it arrived in California the steering wheel was slightly off kilter and the car tended to steer me instead of the other way around at bumps and potholes.  I liked the way my old BMW drove better.  But what did I know?  Then, after a couple of months my son-in-law noticed excessive wear on the front tires.  I went to BMW of Monrovia and was shown tie rods that were bent.  I felt betrayed and sent Enthusiast a nasty letter.  It produced an inspection report from a BMW dealer in Cincinnati that showed no tie rod problems.  The car had probably been damaged during shipping.  At that point Enthusiast could have refused all help, claiming the car was sold "as is," that any problems were mine once the car left the lot, and that I should deal with the trucking company and its insurer.  Instead, it apologized and paid for new tie rods (inside and out), alignment and a set of four new Michelins!  Unbelievable.  Unheard of.  Honorable.  If you chance to find a car at Enthusiast Auto Group, consider yourself fortunate.  They deliver.  Now that my car is fixed, it's dreamy.  I have what Enthusiast wanted me to have.  Any questions?  (909) 482-1000.

In search for a BMW M3, I'm so glad I happened to come across Enthusiast Auto (EAG). I spent the better half of a year scouring the Bay Area for a M3 and continually came up short. There just wasn't any M3's that fit my requirements locally, but as I expanded my search nationally I found that EAG clearly had an ample supply of the best BMW's in the nation.  I reached out to EAG about their inventory of cars and Eric was more than helpful. From the beginning, Eric was upfront and honest about the M3 I was inquiring about. Eric was also very patient with me. He promptly answered my onslaught of questions (I had Tons!) whether by email or phone. Everything seemed too good to be true, but the thought of buying a car site unseen was rather unsettling. Being a few thousand miles away and with my busy work schedule I just was unable to make the trip out to EAG and see the car. After sleeping on it, I went ahead took the leap of faith and went ahead with the purchase.  The car arrived ahead of schedule and it was just as Eric described. The car was a blast to drive and it was in pristine condition. Unfortunately, within the first few days of ownership the alternator in the car failed. I reached out to Eric and he instantly stood behind the car and sent me a new alternator. With the new alternator installed, I'm back on the road and couldn't be happier. My experience with EAG is a true testament to the quality of cars they carry and their top notch service. For anyone looking for a BMW don't hesitate to check out EAG. They'll take care of you and you won't be disappointed.

In 1992 while in Germany I saw my first BMW 850Ci. I loved the looks of the car but at the time it was out of my reach. Fast forward 19 years. I saw another BMW 850Ci on a trip back from Myrtle beach which got me interested again. I started checking out the automobile sites to see what was out there.  I saw a few 850's but most of them had automatic transmissions and I wanted a standard transmission. The choices were few but I came upon an ad from Enthusiast Auto Group and a few private sellers. I checked out the cars and made some phone calls to verify the condition of the cars. I checked out the testimonials on Enthusiast Auto Group's web site and I was impressed. The photos of the car were impressive also. I contacted Eric and told him I wanted to buy the 850CSI. I sent my deposit and made arrangements to fly to Cincinnati to pick up the car.  I had a bad experience buying a car off of the internet in the past so I opted to pick up the BMW 850CSI instead of having it shipped. Now I know I should not have worried because the car and the Enthusiast Auto Group were as good if not better than advertised.  I was met at the Dayton airport and driven to Enthusiast  to pick up the car. I stayed the night and in Dayton and had the pleasure of driving the car back to New York. Since then I have showed the BMW 850CSi in 2 auto shows. The first show In Saratoga, the only class my BMW could be in was for exotics and was very subjective. The second show, I was in the foreign class and the judging was based on fit and finish and I won 1st place! The only thing I had to do with the car was wash it, thanks to everyone at Enthusiasts Auto Group.

It is not often, in these times, one finds a car business that provides service “above and beyond” the way everyone at Enthusiast Auto Group does. From the first contact with these guys and gal three years ago, it became apparent to me this is more than a career to them, it is a passion. I have had the pleasure of being involved in four transactions with Eric, Victoria and everyone and EAG. I have purchased two vehicles and sold two of my vehicles to their dealership.  I first got to know Eric three years ago from an ad on autotrader.com, for the Mini Cooper S I eventually bought and had EAG modify for me. Before that transaction, I had not known of EAG. Even on that first purchase, Eric provided all information needed to make a legitimate decision on purchasing the vehicle and then provided expert guidance on the types of modifications that would best suit my needs with the car, over the telephone, sight unseen. Two years later, when I reluctantly had to part with my M3 track car, and later my E90, Eric and the entire group at EAG were there to assist me and provide all the support and guidance required. All this provided while making me feel like their most important client, all along the way.  Most recently, when I saw a 1998, 328i that I could not let slip by I called Eric. Knowing me and my fancies, Eric was able to provide all information I needed to decide this was the car for me at this time. The entire transaction was, again, handled completely professionally, quickly, smoothly, and honestly over the phone, sight unseen. I have no reservations at all knowing that when Eric or anyone at EAG describes a car and its condition they are meticulous in their evaluation. I had no worries purchasing the 328i, my second car purchased from EAG sight unseen. We discussed modifications and Eric advised me on immediate modifications made as well as future modifications I wish to make. Those immediate modifications were done to perfection when I picked up the car.  Upon arriving at EAG my car was ready to go and looked like I had just pulled out of a showroom (a 13 year old machine). The paperwork was ready when I arrived and literally took less than 10 minutes with Victoria's excellent organization. I hung out at EAG for a couple of hours before departing with my new vehicle as I, not only find it fascinating, but extremely informative to hang out with Bimmer experts. The 500 mile trip home flew by in a flash as my new ultimate driving machine performed beyond expectations. Without hesitation I can state that Enthusiast Auto is the only place I will consider purchasing my next Bimmer from, and recommend them to anyone without reservation.  Thanks Eric, Evan, Josh and Victoria. You make the purchase of a Bimmer (or any vehicle for that matter) a pleasure. The ability to purchase the ultimate driving machine from the ultimate in BMW dealers!!!

I want to thank you for the recent purchase of my '05 E46 M3.  You guys and your employees were great to work with.  Friendly, courteous and professional.  If you said it would happen at a certain time it did.  Keeping commitments is very important to me. I'd have a very hard time spending a large amount of money on a car I couldn't see and drive before the purchase.  It's not in my nature to turn over so much control so I did what I could to check you out.  My efforts turned up many responses about you as people and a business.  Not a single word of negativity and much, much praise.  Even though I ended up buying a car that I came to see, I had become willing to buy sight unseen because of the trust we had developed. The car is great.  Exactly as you'd described it.  No surprises.  Maybe the best part was being able to configure the car the way I wanted it, with different wheels/tires and upgraded brakes.  I would never have been able to do that sort of thing buying from a private party or dealer. You all made the buying/delivery process easy and it was great to get to know you.  I'm a happy customer! Thanks again!
Jay Hudson, Greenville, SC
This is a big thank you to Eric and EAG!  I love my new E39 M5 and I am absolutely amazed at the length that EAG went through to make sure that this car was absolutely perfect.  I already had a very high degree of trust and respect for Eric and EAG, as I had previously sold Eric an E46 M3 and recently purchased an E36 M3 sedan.  During the deal on my M5, Eric took my previous level of trust and respect to an all new level.  First, after the car that I was trading to EAG for my M5 was already being transported from Colorado to Cincinnati I received a message from Eric stating that he had a surprise for me and to call him once the M5 arrived in Colorado.  Once the M5 arrived, Eric informed me that he had driven my M5 before it shipped and he did not like how the clutch felt on the car and that he had gone ahead and replaced the clutch.  The deal was already done and Eric had $2k worth of work done to the car with the clutch replacement, now that is my kind of surprise!!  If that wasn't enough, there were a couple of minor issues associated with the new clutch (backup lights and cruise control) and Eric worked with my local BMW shop to get the issues resolved and he picked up the tab for that too.  If you are shopping at EAG for the first time, just know that these guys are extremely trustworthy and great to work with, whether you are buying one of their cars or they are buying your car.

It's rare to purchase something that exceeds your expectations -- especially when that something is a used car.  I have previously owned two extremely low-mile e36 M3s, but the one I just purchased from Enthusiast Auto Group is the best-documented, best-maintained, best driving one yet.   Living in Las Vegas, I did not have the time or money to fly out to Cincinnati to test-drive a car prior to purchase.  Which meant I had to put complete faith in Eric and EAG.  I was not disappointed.  The car arrived three days ahead of schuedule, and it is, in a word, stunning.  It is everything advertised and described, only better.  The interior, engine bay, and trunk are spotless, and the exterior fit and finish far exceeded the pics on the EAG website.  It is like traveling back to 1995 and getting a brand-new M3 for $15,000 less. Being one of the only, if not the only, shop of its kind in the U.S., it would be very easy for EAG to cut corners and still draw a substantial business.  They have not chosen that route:  far from it.  They are consummate professionals who 1) take pride in what they do, and 2) create a no-nonsense, get-what-you-pay-for buying experience that is easy, fast, and rewarding.  I would, and have, recommended them to lifelong friends and family.  They are that good.
