Foreign Motorcars, Inc. was established in Quincy, Massachusetts on July 28, 2005 by long time friends and enthusiasts David Bluestein and Kyle Chadwick. David and Kyle have always had a passion for meticulous workmanship and German engineering making the automobile business the obvious choice. With the opportunity to exclusively service and sell pre-owned BMW vehicles they set out to create a unique experience by eliminating commission-based service advisors and salespeople in order to focus on individual needs.
We have an obsession with perfection that’s displayed throughout every vehicle we touch. We are extremely knowledgeable, ultra professional and surprisingly reasonable. Please give us a chance to impress you.
David grew up in the European car industry watching his father import, sell and service BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and Ferrari vehicles. When he was 18, his father sent him to work at a local BMW dealership where he learned firsthand what truly makes BMW’s the ultimate driving machine. Fast-forward through 4-years of college with a degree in marketing and finance to when his father could not get him to stop working at that local BMW dealership! Eventually the dealership owner sold out to a larger corporation and all the personal service became secondary to profit. David noticed everything they did wrong and knew how simple it was to fix. In 2005 he founded Foreign Motorcars, Inc. with one goal in mind: to provide clients with a simple and honest approach to buying and servicing their BMW. Today David performs service with Brad in the shop and handles most of the day to day business of Foreign Motorcars.
Kyle’s experience with European cars started at Volkswagen when he was just 19. He quickly gained a reputation for his integrity, honesty and straight forward approach to buying and selling cars. Although many car dealers still do not understand this approach, Kyle’s customers loved and followed him through his career to Foreign Motorcars. Kyle is a man of his word; if he says he’ll do something for you, it will be done. Since he does all the buying and selling of our BMW’s himself, he likes to work by appointment to guarantee our clients his undivided attention. When it comes to buying cars, Kyle has a reputation in the industry for being very discriminating. Our BMW’s must exceed his standards in every way from ownership history to structural integrity, cosmetic and mechanical condition. He can quickly distinguish “exceptional” pre-owned BMW’s from “mediocre” ones. His meticulous attention to detail during the inspection process ensures that only the finest vehicles pass through the doors of Foreign Motorcars.
Brad walked through the front door of Foreign Motorcars May of 2009 curious who we were and what we were all about. He hasn’t left since. Brad was an entrepreneur working with high line vehicles on the South Shore looking to expand his business. We immediately hit it off and today Brad runs the service shop. His extensive knowledge of BMW’s is unmatched. He understands how they operate through various control modules and their list of common faults and how to properly repair them.
As the other reviews mentioned, these are the most honest and polite BMW repair and sales people that I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Both my 330ci and 530xi BMWs have gone into David's shop. Not only do they have BY FAR the most honest pricing you could hope for, they are incredibly nice, informative and experts at fixing BMWs! The 3 times that I have gone into their shop have been extraordinarily positive experiences and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone! I honestly can not express how grateful I am to both David and Brad for all of the amazing work they do and for treating their customers in such an incredible way! They set the standard! A+++++++
It was 5 years ago that I bought my 2006 X3 from Foreign Motorcars. It's a great car, just hit 100,000 and I plan to drive for another 100,000 in large part because I can rely on the superb service provided by David, Brad and Kyle. They are always available to help and prompt to respond - scheduling is quick and the quality of service is excellent. I trust them completely.
I can't say enough good things about these guys. David, Kyle and Brad take creating a great customer experience to heart.
I've had work done by many of the local BMW dealers and service providers, and these guys are by far the best. I've made Foreign Motorcars my only choice for having any work done; from oil changes and timing belts, to rebuilding my transmission.
I've done a lot of research on my vehicle and I own the Bentley publishers service manual, and I can say that David has never tried to oversell me on anything. As a matter of fact, he'd tell me to wait on certain repairs, and has always given me truthful options and choices.
Also, his attention to detail is uncanny. He's replaced small missing items, like buttons and caps, without ever mentioning it, or even charging me. Once, I found that he'd replaced my windshield washer reservoir cap, which I had previously lost, while refilling it.
David has saved me so much time and money, that he's literally on my Christmas list. You really can't go wrong with these guys.Tony
I have been having my 2010 BMW serviced by Foreign Motorcars for the last 80,000 miles and every step of the way, they have meticulously repaired and efficiently maintained my car always meeting schedule commitments and charging very fair prices. I trust Foreign Motorcar and strongly recommend them.
I would recommend this company to others. I would do business with them again. Kyle is a man of his word and did exactly what he committed to do.
I purchased a 2008 335i convertable from a dealer,I took a chance because i couldnt resist! Reading about these guys, I took my baby to David.First impression-This guy is a genius.He went through the car,said it was solid ! He did not try to sell me anything, just gave me a great education on the car I just purchased. He was honest,knowledgeable and smart. You dont get that personalized treatment at a BMW dealer. I will be a life long customer of theirs as long as I have my beema..
I currently own a 2010 750ixdrive, (which I Love) I can not speak more highly of Dave and his guys.....He is one in a million. I tell everyone i see that drives a BMW about Foreign Motorcars!! Great people! great Service!! Glad I found you
This was my fist time bringing my 03 330xi to Foreign Motorcars and it will not be my last - Dave is an unbelievable mechanic who treated my car as if it was his own - he didn't try and sell me on things that my car didn't need- he told me exactly what it needed as well as some other things that I might want to get done in the near future if I was planning on keeping my car for at least an other year - if you are looking to buy sell or have your BMW serviced I highly recommend brining your car to Foreign Motorcars - they really are just all around nice easy going guys looking to help people out
Great customer service and repair work! Took my BMW in on a Saturday and they were able to complete the required work without a follow up appointment. I plan to come back for future service work and would also consider buying a BMW from them in the future. Great overall experience!
As other customers have mentioned, Foreign Motorcars provides a truly comfortable and comprehensive service experience and having been to their shop a few times this year, I can attest that Dave, Kyle, and Brad all care deeply about their craft and offer exceptionally good customer service.
Whenever I have had an issue with my vehicle, Dave has been quick to respond to any questions I had and has always provided thorough recommendations (even if it meant taking my car to a BMW dealer if he thought the problem might be covered by CPO). They will not sell you any unnecessary work and make sure that you are informed throughout every step in the process.
I also find their prices reasonable, especially compared to dealership rates, and they usually have me in and out quickly. They use OEM (or better) replacement parts and fluids and are truly passionate about the brand and their cars!
Kyle, David and Brad are the best. I have purchased 4 vehicles from them and am continually amazed at their responsiveness, customer service, patience and guidance. There has never been a time in the years that I've dealt with them, that I have been dissatisfied with Foreign Motorcars. I truly enjoy going to see them - whether it's for an oil change or to purchase a new car - it is always a pleasure!
It's so nice to work with professionals who actually love what they are doing!
I have bought 2 BMWs and had 3 BMWs serviced with Foreign Motorcars and could not be happier with the overall experience there. They work had to get you in for service as quickly as possible and give accurate and reasonable quotes that they stand behind. Buying with them is easy too, they take care of every detail. Best is knowing that they stand behind what they sell and they can be trusted.
I live in south jersey 5 hours from the Boston area. I saw a BMW I had a interest in but didn't want to take a 10hr round trip just to look at a car that might or might not be worth it. So I needed someone to be my eyes and ears in the Boston area, someone I could trust to do a PPI, pre~purchase inspection for me. Someone who knew BMW's better then me and someone I could trust.
Not being from the area I didnt know who to call. Well I can tell you I lucked out by contacting the guys at Foreign Motors. Spoke with Dave and right from the start I knew not only was he a man I could trust but someone who knew the BMW make intimately!!! On short notice he made time for my inspection, was extremely meticulous and all at a fair price.
If you are in the market to either buy or service your late model BMW, any year from 1988 to the present and you're looking for a honest deal go see the staff at Foreign Motors......ask for Dave!!!!!!!
I purchase a 528xDrive (2010) from Kyle and Foreign Motor Cars June 2014. The experience was excellent and the car has been fantastic.
The price was very fair, and the car was (and is) a great road machine.
I absolutely will go back to Kyle and Foreign Motor Cars when it's time to buy again.
Last year, I bought a 2011 335i from Foreign Motorcars. Kyle is professional and passionate about BMWs. You also get better service than from a large dealership. Their price was right and because the car still had a factory warranty, I am free to bring it anywhere. Great experience!
Originally, I contemplated driving in excess of one hour in search of a diagnosis. To my surprise not only was it the best thing to do but it kept $5000 in my bank account. Every single mechanic on the face of this earth operates in Commerece, with the intention of making a profit. But only few far and in between are able to uphold their financial goals in conjunction with their integrity. This particular individual who happens to be the business owner by the name of David, is by far an exception to this generality. I have driven BMW and only BMW for the last 11 years. As am under the presumption that you are reading this as an that you are reading this as an initial analysis of the best service. Let me assure you, look no farther! Thank you to all at Foreign Motorcars; it has truly been my pleasure!! JM
I cannot say enough great things about this place. I have had an idling problem with my Mini Cooper for 4 years – BMW in San Fran, LA, and Boston couldn’t even detect it, but I could. One trip to Foreign Motorcars, they noticed the problem immediately and now my Mini is running tip top. Prior to this repair, I called with a question and spoke with the owner who spent almost 10 minutes on the phone with me. So professional, respectful, and patient. So happy I found this place.
I recently made an on-line purchase of a 2011 BMW Z4 from Kyle and his crew. I probably looked hard at 25+ Z4s from sellers located literally across the country, eventually narrowing my choice to three (3) identical vehicles — from dealerships in L.A., Seattle, and Foreign Motorcars, Inc. in Boston. When making an internet purchase of a used car — sight unseen — the most important consideration is reaching a comfort level with the seller. This was my fourth such vehicle internet purchase and I have learned — from experience — that speaking (at length) with the seller is the only way to achieve that predicate “trust” level. I ultimately settled on the Z4 from Foreign Motorcars based upon that “trust factor” with Kyle. Although I paid slightly more for the car from Boston (and the mileage on it was the highest of the three), it was unquestionably the correct decision. The car was delivered via a covered transport, and — but for the odometer reading [38K miles] — looked in every respect to be a brand new car. This is my third BMW — but the first used one — that I have purchased and I am confident that driving (and owning) this one will be as enjoyable as the previous two. When the day comes for me to buy my next BMW, my first inquiry will be to Foreign Motorcars. If you are considering a used BMW, look to see if Foreign Motorcars has what you want. You will be glad you did.
Bought X5 from Foreign Motorcars. Excellent team of people to work with, very informative and no pressure on the sale. Cannot say enough for the quality of their vehicles, unlike other car dealers you do NOT have to worry about service or mechanic issues with their cars. No unforeseen out of pocket expenses. Have gone back to them for oil and other regular service. Would highly recommend them!
I have to echo the other reviews about this place. They are fantastic. I have never posted on Yelp or any other review site but felt I needed to this time. I bought a 2007 BMW 530XI from them in June 2011. After 3 months my radiator had a slow coolant leak. The warranty I had was for 2 months, so I didn’t bring it in (mistake, I should have). Anyway for the next 11 months I would fill the radiator with coolant every 2-3 months, not a big deal. Last week I got a notice from BMW stating that my car needed to be recalled for a faulty part so I brought it to the local BMW dealer in Peabody. While I was there getting that done, I asked them about the leak. They came back and said I had a cracked radiator and that it would be over $1000 to fix. I thought this is BS and didn’t have them do it. I called Foreign Motorcars and talked to Brad about it and he said bring it in. The next day I talked to Dave who said it was a leaky seal around the thermostat in the radiator. He then said that because it had been leaking since I bought it, he would honor the warranty and I would only have to pay the $100 deductible to get it fixed. I couldn’t believe it, this was 9 months after the warranty had expired and he honored it. I would recommend them to anybody who needs a car or needs to get a car fixed. This is how to do business. Thanks Brad and Dave.
Dear Brad, We want to apologize for taking so long to write this letter. We have been enjoying our new car, and could not be happier with our purchase. It has been Susan’s dream to one day own a BMW, but with young children, it seemed impossible. Then one day the children all grew up and I suggested that, we take a look at some BMW’s at Foreign Motors. We had driven by your dealership many times and always admired the cars in your lot. We just want to say thank you and that we are so pleased that we purchased our first BMW from you; you made the whole experience a memorable one. Susan and I were very impressed with your professionalism and honesty and we would recommend your dealership to friends and family. As I said before, Susan and I love our new car and since we love it so much we plan on coming back in a few years to purchase a second BMW maybe even an SUV! Thanks Again Brad.
I have an x3 that was in need of care as it was just over 100k and I did not want to spend a fortune at the dealership so a coworker recommended Foreign Motorcars, I called and gave a rough idea of the problems I was having and was very happy that I could get an appointment that same week. I dropped the car off with my list of things I “thought” it could be and awaited the phone call with what the diagnosis/details were. All I can say is Foreign Motorcars was on point they did not try to fix anything that did not need to be and were amazing with their pricing and it was all completed the same day!! I was very happy with their level of professionalism and VERY clean place you can tell they take care and pride there and it shows. The list of items that needed to be done were the PCV System, Runner Valve, all the belts, oil filter housing, valve cover gasket, and spark plugs and they took excellent care of my car. I will continue to recommend and use Foreign Motorcars for all my future maintenance and service needs.
I have brought my ’01 BMW 330 to Foreign Motorcars over the last 6 months for service and I have never been happier with the results. David is a master of his craft and treated my car as if it were his own. They always have an inventory of amazing vehicles; and being a BMW enthusiast myself – it becomes very hard to resist trading up. This past week, I finally decided to pull the trigger and purchase an ’07 530xi. I have purchased many cars in the past, but have never had an easier or more pleasant experience than the one I had with Foreign Motorcars. Brad and Kyle are both knowledgeable and intuitive when it comes to the car buying process. It was truly the easiest and most satisfying experience I have ever had at a dealership. Brad made financing simple, quick, and painless. Kyle worked to ensure that I was happy with the vehicle and that it was registered and inspected promptly for pick up. There are not enough good things I can say about this place, you’ll just have to stop in and experience it for yourself. Any true BMW enthusiast will clearly see the passion that these three guys have!
My wife and I have been searching for a winter car off and on for the past six weeks etc. I knew about Foreign Motorcars in Quincy but knew nothing about the people or product they sell. We visited them about a month ago looking at a 2005 BMW 325XI for sale and was very impressed with Brad and Dave. The shop is spotless and both Brad and Dave were extremely friendly answering our questions etc on their vehicle inventory. We decided to keep looking around for the perfect used vehicle but were disappointed with the “other ” guys and what they had on the lot. This past week I scanned Foreign Motorcars website and found what I thought was the right vehicle. We met with Brad, checked out the vehicle and came to a price with no hassles. Dave assured he would check the vehicle over and Brad had people running around to the registry, inspection sticker, detailing in the course of 4-5 hours. I/ we cannot say enough about the customer service they provided and how this auto transaction went very smoothly. Nice job gentlemen,your business model is outstanding
I just bought my 1st BMW from Foreign Motorcars and I have to say, they are the best in the business!!!! What a great experience!!! Brad, Kyle and Dave have such a passion for these cars and you can tell the appreciation they have because it shows!!! The customer service is excellent!!! They make you feel so at ease!!! If there were a 100 star rating I would give them 100 stars!!!! :) All I can say is, EVERYONE go to Foreign Motorcars and buy your next car, You will be so happy!!!!! Thanks guys!!! Gail D.
My wife and I bought a BMW X3 from Kyle back in January of this years. We were so happy with the after service Foreign Motorcars gave us – that when I decided to trade my X5 in, the only person I spoke to was Kyle. I recently purchased a Porsche Cayenne from them and once again, the after service was excellent!! I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE!!
Foreign Motorcars provides outstanding BMW service and a high level of personal attention that has continued long after I purchased my car from them. Anytime I have a question about my car, Brad, Kyle or Dave respond immediately. I spent 15 minutes on the phone with Dave (mechanic) yesterday asking about trailer hitch options and he gave me his time and thoughtful opinion without rushing me or making me feel like a nuisance. I have recommended Foreign Motorcars to several friends.
Just want to send out a thank you to everyone at Foreign Motorcars, and Brad in particular for his attention with our sale. Your business philosophy is refreshing as it is captivating. I’m from Michigan and will certainly return to Foreign Motorcars for my next BMW. Thanks again guys! Love my 2004 330xi and love what you’re doing in Quincy, MA.
I recently bought a car from Foreign Motorcars. Their specialty is B.M.W. but they had this Lexus 350 in Gem condition.It was what I was looking for. I had seen the same car advertised in a Watertown dealership for 4,000.00 more.The car that Kyle sold me had 15,000 fewer miles on it. What more could one ask? These three young men (Kyle, Brad and David) know how to run a business and I admire them for their attention to detail,knowledge, and yes kindness! Kyle didn’t want to see me leave with only one key so he made another at no charge( $300.00 or more) I should also mention that they delivered the car with four new Michelin tires. My loved one came along with me and immediately fell in love with all three of them. She called today to arrange for a purchase for herself
I had my heart set on buying a BMW and I am so happy I went to Foreign Motorcars, INC. It was a carbuying experiencethat was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced before: low pressure, easy going, and cars that sell themselves. The staff was courteous, efficient, very knowledgeable, and extremely patient.Coming from CT to trade in my car could not have been smoother. The staff was able to accommodate me in every way and made my trip to MA to trade in my car for a used BMW 3 series stress free and seamless. The cars at Foreign Motorcars, INC are without a doubt the cleanest used cars I have ever seen. I will definitely be a repeat customer and have sung their praises to anyone I know who is in the market for a used BMW. I have been loving my car ever since I drove it off the lot! I HIGHLY recommend this dealership
I bought a car from foreign motors, the Quincy location about three months ago. The car is in phenomenal shape, it’s an 06 bmw 325xi. I bought the car with four new Michelin tires, and new brakes. After I bought it, I wanted to get the windows tinted, so Brad went the extra mile and got them tinted for me. Never had a problem with the beamer or the services foreign motors has provided for me so far, except with the driver’s side door lock about a week or two after i bought it. I brought it back to get it fixed. Only took about a day, at no charge to me. I’ve met all three business partners, Brad, Kyle and David. They definitely know how to run a business; they’re polite, friendly and fair. They’ll help you out whenever they can. I’ve stopped over a multiple times by now, just to ask questions on how to operate something in a car, about chrome or upkeep. I got a great deal on the car, it’s in phenomenal shape, and there is no doubt in my mind that if I ever have any more questions or any problems arise in the future, they’ll be able to help me. If you’re in the market for a new car, don’t bother wasting your time by going to any other dealership. Especially if you’re looking for the car of your dreams, I’m sure you’ll see something you like here. This is the place to go! And to Dave, Brad, and Kyle thank you for everything you’ve done for me, (phenomenal service, kindness, help and your expertise) I appreciate it. I don’t think I could’ve found a better place to buy my new car.
Gentlemen: When I was in business, I always did my best to please my customers, because satisfied people will come back, and will recommend you to people they know. The nice people at Foreign Motorcars do the same thing, and go the extra mile to make people like myself happy. That’s why I just bought another automobile from them, and that’s why I’ll be back again someday. I could write several hundred words more, as others have done before me, but it’s not necessary. The bottom line: if you are looking for a great automobile, and want to be treated right, you are already at the right place.
I bought my last car from these guys two years ago and couldn’t be happier. Not only did they give me a great price but they’ve been there for me after the sale. Anytime I have a question or need some routine maintenance these guys are always quick to get back to me and let me know what needs to be done. In an industry where the layman can be easily intimidated and ripped off, these guys are a breath of fresh air. I’m a customer for life and I can’t recommend them enough
I purchased an Audi A6 from Foreign Motorcars in Quincy and just wanted to express my satisfaction with the whole process. No pushy sales people here; you deal directly with the two owners who treated me fairly and with respect. They took care of all the running around (registry, insurance, etc) and most importantly, the car has performed flawlessly for the past 3 months. I am extremely pleased and would recommend Foreign Motorcars to anyone looking for a high quality vehicle.
I just wanted to say how incredibly pleased I am with my purchase of an 04 BMW 325XI from Foreign Motorcars and David and Kyle. They treated me with honesty and respect from the time I walked in the door to the time I showed up unanounced 3 months after the purchase for an oil change (which they even did for me free of charge). They really are very different than any other car dealership I have ever dealt with. Keep up the good work and I’ll keep on referring you guys
Without exception, buying a car from Foreign Motorcars and David Bluestein was the most satisfying car buying experience I have ever had in my 50 plus years of motoring. In today’s world where buying a new car is both financially and mentally frustrating and when more of us are turning to the used market, buying a formerly owned car form David was both gratifying and fun. David and his associates represent the best of the best in their vehicle choices and in preparing them for sale. I was impressed at every turn of my experience which also includes AFTER THE SALE. I purchased a BMW Z3 and couldn’t be happier. I give David Bluestein and Foreign Motorcars my highest praise and recommend them without reservation to anyone interested in buying a formerly owned car. You cannot do better.
I visited Foreign Motorcars today and test drove a BMW 128i. My teat drive was unusual in that it was absent of the hard sell have come to expect during such events. Compared to some dealers and other sellers of automobiles this shop stands alone. Brad and Kyle, I did not meet the third member of the team, were as professional as any individuals as I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with. The atmosphere of this entity is so low key and at the same time professional it difficult to describe. It not that the shop doesn want to sell cars, they actually do, it is that the company is just folks that are in the car business. Professional while at the same time sincere is the only way to describe the experience of dealing with Foreign Motorcars of Quincy. If anyone reading this is considering a used BMW please consider a visit to Foreign Motorcars, 586 Willard Street, Quincy MA. Call them at 617-996-CARS (2277).
Here are two honest guys doing everything right and with a lot of class. You don’t find this treatment at many places. I bought a BMW 328I from them and couldn’t be more pleased. They do all the work for you and you get a great car in the process. They are meticulous and take great pride in what they do………that’s what makes the difference. I would recommend them highly.
To Anyone Considering Foreign Motorcars, Inc. – If you’ve ever bought a car before, you know it can be a time consuming and frustrating process. I’ve been a loyal BMW driver for over 8 years and decided a pre-owned, certified BMW was the direction I would go for my next car. I’d already made the rounds to the usual, larger BMW car dealerships. I just wasn’t finding the car or the experience I was looking for. Then one weekend, I did a Google Search and discovered Foreign Motorcars, Inc. in Quincy. The inventory looked great and I went right down to look at one of the BMW’s on their lot. After a test drive, I sat down with David Bluestein and within less than an hour, he was able to work with me on the trade-in of my current BMW, the purchase of this new pre-owned, certified BMW, the whole registration process and he even helped me with the auto loan (at a great rate, I must add). Within one day, I was driving my new car. I couldn’t believe how easy the whole process was. And, even more important, I didn’t have to deal with any of the wheeling/dealing attitudes you get at the larger dealers. This was the most positive car buying experience I’ve ever had. And the experience didn’t stop there. They told me if I needed anything regarding the car (service, etc.) that they could help. As it turned out, I needed some auto repairs done about 6 months after getting the car. Foreign Motorcars got me connected with a shop that did excellent work, was on time and didn’t try and rip me off. I plan to go through them for any and all service and repairs needed while I have this car. I really can’t say enough good things about these guys. I’d recommend Foreign Motorcars, Inc. to anyone looking to buy a car and to also have the best in customer service!
Dear David/Kyle, Where does one begin when one has to write about their experience dealing with a “used car” dealer/salesman? I choose to begin by writing that my recent purchase of my 2005 BMW X3 was unlike any car purchases that I’ve made in over 40 years as a Massachusetts driver and auto owner of more than 20+ vehicles. This by far was and is the best experience I’ve ever had! These “guys, David and Kyle are simply the best! I feel that I’ve not only purchased a quality car, but made two friends along the way. They went over and above from day one, and I have absolutely no concerns that they will continue to be there for me down the road. They know their “stuff” and I highly recommend them to anyone considering an auto purchase in the future. I will continue to recommend them to all my friends and business associates. I remain sincerely,
I recently purchased a pre-owned BMW X5 from Foreign Motorcars in Quincy. After a few days of use, I noticed some leaking from the engine area. Evidently there was a minor oil leak coupled with some additional leaking from the power steering system. No matter who I spoke with (Kyle, David or Brad) they were all aware of the progress of repairs that were needed and kept me in the loop on the progress of getting the repairs completed. They covered all of the costs which exceeded $2,500 and used authorized BMW parts. They even replaced the battery when it was determined that the vehicle was slow starting. These guys are BMW fanatics. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and would highly recommend including Foreign Motorcars in a search for a premium, pre-owned BMW with the confidence that if something goes wrong, they will completely honor their used car warranty. I can’t imagine they made much if any profit on my vehicle after the repairs. However, they take their business practices and reputation seriously – something that seems to be the exception rather that the rule these days. Thank you for the excellent vehicle, service and follow through.
I have had my 2004 BMW 325XI for just over a year now and it is running great and tearing thru the snow and wet roads. You were both excellent to deal with and I would highly recommend that anybody looking to purchase a used BMW come to you first. You are both men of your word, which is sometimes hard to find at the large car dealerships. I look forward to doing more business with you in the future.
I searched for over two long months for a BMW that was not abused, beaten, busted and tired. I had literally given up my search and decided to keep my current vehicle for another year. That night, I googled BMW dealers in Boston again and saw Foreign Motorcars. I had somehow missed seeing them listed. I called and made an appointment with Kyle the next morning. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised at how nice and kind these three gentleman were. They immediately put me at ease. Absolutely ZERO high pressure sales here. They are BMW, Foreign car fanatics and it shows. The vehicles they acquire are in phenomenal shape! I was amazed at how Mint in condition the BMW I purchased there was. I have been driving it now for two weeks and absolutely LOVE IT!! I have no problem referring anyone to come visit them. You WILL be pleasantly surprised. Thanks again Kyle, Dave and Brad!
I’ve done business with Foreign Motorcars for about 3 years now. I’ve purchased a car, traded 2 cars, and have had various services performed. Over these few years every single interaction with Foreign Motor cars has not only been positive but enjoyable. I’m happy to do business and convey funds as each time I am provided with friendly, honest, timely service and advice. Advice is one of those intangibles that is priceless. Foreign Motorcars has a superior business model, years of knowledge and the manufactures’ tools to “get the job done”. I’m grateful to Foreign Motorcars for all of the help and assistance they have provided and I can recommend these folks without hesitation
David and team – First – love the car! Recently snowed and it was all you said it would be! The xi handled smooth and sure despite the road conditions! But more importantly – thank you. The search for an AWD car led to many, many dealers, and many, many versions of BS! Heard every line there is, most of them total crap! Stumbling onto Foreign Motors and then meeting you all was a saving grace. Your straight-forward, up-front, no pressure style, and real approach to car sales, not to mention your team’s personal expertise with the cars you sell, was refreshing and very helpful. I will most certainly be back, and will send anyone I can think of your way. The experience was excellent and thank you again for all of your help and forth-rightness
Dear Brad We are very satisfied with our recent purchase. The car is all we expected and more. In regards to our experience, we are pleased as well. After shopping several weeks, looking at all types of vehicles, and dealing with numerous sales persons, we were getting discouraged. This all changed at your company. Your offerings, professional sales style, and reasonable prices made our decision to buy so much easier. And even after the fact when we had some questions, you were willing and available to help us. Thanks for the great vehicle and the wonderful experience.
Alright so I normally never do reviews but these guys here are not your typical salesmen. The first car i went to check out was a 2004 330xi, a car I immediately fell in love with at first sight and on the first test drive. So I bought it and Kyle (the owner) was able to work with me on the numbers as this was only the second car I had purchased. So he walked me through it which was a huge help. After the purchase (about a week later) the car needed a new front axle. Something that was very costly and the car being fresh off the lot…lets just say I wasn’t too happy. I went to BMW Norwood and let them look at it. They quoted me 1,600…I was like are you joking me? I quickly shot Kyle (the owner) a quick email about it and he said to bring it in. David (my new best friend/mechanic) gave me a call later that day and said he would take care of it for just the $100 deductible. Wow I thought…these guys take care of you because selling cars is not their only concern. They are good, honest, and informative people who take care of their customers. They really want you to love driving your BMW as much as they love driving theirs. Recently I traded that first car I bought because I had been eyeing a beautiful 2007 335xi alpine white CPO. Can I just say…I am so happy with the new car. Once again everyone… Brad, Kyle, And David made the process so easy. They answered all my questions honestly and informatively. So I finalized the divorce with my 2004 330xi and remarried a gorgeous 2007 335xi. I feel like a new man. I thought my 330 was fast……not anymore. If anyone is looking for a great used BMW make sure to give Foreign Motor Cars a drop in. You won’t be pressured into buying something you don’t want or have the fake smile, handshake, and verbal vomit procedure. You will meet 3 of the best down to earth car guys who love what they do. You can tell they want you to really love your new purchase because buying a new car is a big deal right? Exactly. So make the right choice and check these guys out before you go anywhere else, because honestly BMWs will come and go in my life but i’ll always go back to Foreign Motor Cars (Quincy) because I know they will take care of me and if you decide to go with them…they will take care of you. Shout out to my boys Kyle, David, and Brad– I told you I would write a review! Hope you guys have a great holiday and I’m sure I’ll be in at some point to say hi. Thanks again for everything. Your friend, Rob
Gentlemen, Thanks for the great car buying experience I recently had purchasing my 2005 BMW X3. Having owned 6 previous BMW’s and purchased them from surrounding dealers in the area in the past, I have to say that you guys are a breath of fresh air when it comes to purchasing a used BMW. No games, no back room deals going just great upfront personalized service. Your selection of cars is great, but most importantly the amount of work and maintenance that goes into these cars before they are sold gives one a piece of mind. Thanks again and good luck.
I recently purchased a BMW from Foreign Motorcars and I’m extremely happy about the car and service. They absolutely have nothing but high quality cars in their inventory and if they don’t have what you’re looking for, they will do their best to find it. I am so happy with the car and service, I would highly recommend anyone looking for a quality used BMW with low mileage to check them out first..
I have now purchased two vehicles from you and I have to say I can’t imagine doing business with any other dealer. The customer service you provide is second to none. The work you do on the cars (new tires,brakes and full service) before you sell them provides a peace of mind that you won’t get at one of the big dealers in the area. I love the X-5 I purchased from you, I look forward to dealing with you again when the time comes to buy another vehicle.
These guys are the real deal. I had been looking for a used E39 5 series BMW for a while now and almost every car I looked at came with some unpleasant and unadvertised “surprises.” While searching online for that elusive diamond in the rough, I found the exact car I wanted on Foreignmotorcars.com, drove down from Newburyport and after a close look and a nice long test drive, I purchased the 2003 BMW 525i on the spot. In a world of unscrupulous used car dealers out there, it is truly refreshing to find guys like these. The 525i I bought from these guys was in fantastic shape, perfectly clean and just as advertised. It looks, feels and drives like a new car. Thank you David and Kyle!
Dear David, I really enjoy the 2004 BMW 330I purchased from you in October 2009. The vehicle runs smooth and looks great. The purpose of this letter is to compliment you on the car buying process I experienced at Foreign Motorcars. From my first conversation with Kyle to my numerous phone calls with you, I can honestly say that the process was outstanding. My questions were answered in a polite, respectful and knowledgeable manner. The financing details, registry needs, paperwork requirements and inspection were flawless. This has not been the case with any other cars I’ve leased or purchased at other dealerships. I certainly appreciate the time and patience you took to answer my questions and guide me through an easy sales process. The knowledge you provided about the vehicle as well as the ongoing advice and resources you provided about my BMW made the decision to purchase the vehicle from Foreign Motorcars one of the easiest and best car buying decisions I’ve made in a long time. Thank you David.
Bought X5 from Foreign Motorcars. Excellent team of people to work with, very informative and no pressure on the sale. Cannot say enough for the quality of their vehicles, unlike other car dealers you do NOT have to worry about service or mechanic issues with their cars. No unforeseen out of pocket expenses. Have gone back to them for oil and other regular service. Would highly recommend them!
I rarely write positive reviews for auto service shops, since my standards for praise are extremely high, but after my last visit with Foreign Motorcars located in Quincy, MA, I decided it was time to tag my name to a business that I respect, and have come to truly appreciate. These guys are truly worthy of my praise and promotion. After I recently purchased a new to me X5, I went to a well known South Shore BMW dealers, since I had a misconception that the dealer would provide the ultimate in service, since they are a dealer with theoretically highly trained service personnel. What took me a few months and multi-thousands of dollars to learn was that the difference between Foreign Motorcars and the dealer's service department was not only their price, but their willingness to truly help. I say without exaggerations that every time I walked into the dealer, their only concern was how much I was willing to spend on repairs. At one point while at a local South Shore BMW dealer, I told them that my service budget was blown for the year repairing all the items that they said I needed serviced. Their response was "I hope you still have some money left. What about next year's budget, could you borrow from that?" The final straw with the dealer was when I had thousands of dollars worth of work done for a noise that they could not locate. I had informed them that I suspected that the trunk lid locking latch might be the culprit, but the dealer refused to listen and when I picked up my vehicle, I was hit with another $2,086 repair bill, which I couldn't pay in full, because I had set a fraud limit of $2,000 on the credit card I was using. They even spoke to my bank's customer service dept, which explained that the funds were available, but that I could only increase the limit at a bank branch, which were all close that late in the day. After spending thousands of dollars with that dealer, they wouldn't release my vehicle to me over an $86 deficit, even though I only authorized a lesser amount to which their response was that it didn't include tax. I had to sign multiple documents and leave my credit card with them, so they could charge me the $86 the next day. I was made to feel like a deadbeat and I was caused much embarrassment in front of the entire showroom floor. Only to find out later that they hadn't deducted a $140 credit that I had with them from a previous service overcharge! At that point I washed my hands of them, and took my vehicle to David at Foreign Motorcars, and explained my predicament with the noise that couldn't be localised. After describing this to David, he quickly informed me of an issue with my model's rear hatch lid locking system that has been known to make that type of noise and fixed it for a very modest fee. Had I seen Foreign Motorcars earlier, I would have saved thousands of dollars in repairs that did almost nothing for the vehicle except swap out parts that were in good condition, and a humiliating experience over $86. Enough about the dealer. Let's talk about the amazing customer service and work I have since received from David and Foreign Motorcars. I've went in there ready to spend money on what I thought was needed service (recommended by the stealer), only to have David tell me to wait on it, since after his inspection was adamant that I did not need at the current time. He has always gone above and beyond whenever I've brought my vehicle in to him, and on multiple occasions actually charged me less than the original quote. I've owned many vehicles, and I never had a service provider charge me less than the original quote. As a matter of fact, I had recently purchased some HID/LED aftermarket Angel Eye headlights, which should have taken 1.5 hours to install, which he quoted me for, only to find out that the headlight system manufacturer somehow forgot that X5's with headlight washer systems have to have the bumper dropped to pull out the old light and install the new ones, which is no small task and easily doubled the effort to replace the lights. Not only did he do it for the original quote, he gave me a discount for my continued patronage. I proudly work for a great company, which prides itself on moral and ethical values, and I know a true customer advocate when I deal with one, and these guys are legit! I cannot praise them highly enough. David always goes above and beyond whenever I have my vehicle serviced with him, which almost makes me feel guilty that he's so good to me and my car, so as a small token of appreciation I wanted to write what I would consider an honest and Foreign Motorcar worthy review. Not only do these guys deserve your business, they will appreciate it and show you how much they do. Do yourself and your car a favor and see David and have your BMW service done there. I treat my car almost better than I treat myself, and I will no longer go to the local stealer to have anything done. He's wholeheartedly won my business for life.
Normally I'm allergic to sales people and, in the past, buying cars has been one of my least favorite things to do. For this reason, it was incredibly refreshing to work with the guys at Foreign Motorcars. They are BMW enthusiasts first, and business men second. They treat their customers like family, and are incredibly authentic, trust-worthy guys. I'm the meticulous type, and i'ts great to look at used cars that were pampered by their past owners and brought up to the Foreign Motorcars gold-standard before being put up for sale. Back in February I bought my wife a 2008 528xi, and the car is absolutely exceptional. The interior looks brand new and the car is running perfectly. This past week I bought a second car from Foreign Motorcars, a 2007 328xi, and again I'm completely blown away by the amazing condition this car is in. Mechanically the car is tight and well tuned. The leather and wood are like-new, even though the car has 70K miles on it! It's simply unheard of. I would definitely do business with Foreign Motorcars again, and strongly recommend their shop if you're looking for a used BMW.
This is my first ever review I feel compeld to let everyone know what an amazing business this place is. I can't tell you how many cars I looked at and drove. I had narrowed my choices down to 3. I drive over 2 hours to see this car and it was worth it. These guys know these cars inside and out. The attention to detail they put into bringing these vehicles back to showroom quality is inserpassable. I purchased my 09 x3 and I love it. I apologize that it's taken me so long to write this review. The amount of work and running around Kyle did for me is just incredible. Living so far away and trying to get paperwork done and the inspection etc was daunting but Kyle did it all I hope I said thank you! Anyway.....This has been by far the best car buying experience I've ever had. Sure you won't be able to lower them on the price (I tried) but it you will leave knowing you got the best deal on a BMW. I highly recommended this dealership. Down to earth people running this place. You don't find many businesses like this. When I'm ready for my next BMW, I'm coming here. Thanks again Kyle!! I wish I lived closer so I could get my regular maintence done here.
My 20 year position that buying a car is a losing proposition is now subject to change. This car purchase was the first time in my life I didn't feel like I needed a bath afterwards. In fact, I drove my 2008 BMW X3 off the lot happy as a clam. My husband badly wanted a BMW X3. I was hesitant due to the higher than average purchase price as compared to other models in class, plus concerns that BMWs are "fussy" and prone to expensive repairs. I'm a pragmatist when it comes to cars, but decided to throw caution to the wind and make my awesome husband happy. In the end, the decision made us all happy. He's 6'5", I'm 5'6", and we have a small child. Finding a family friendly, non-nerdy, comfortable car that fits both of us is no small undertaking - much less one that's fun to drive, attractive or with luxury features. My kid even loves the giant moon roof and quietly stares at the sky while driving which is infinitely better than a DVD player. I extensively researched BMW dealerships in Greater Boston and found Foreign Motor Cars through Google. I elected to buy a used X3 from them based on their outstanding internet reviews, and also to support a small local business owned by people who are passionate about what they do which was evident from their website. These guys are great, and I mean GREAT. They were highly responsive, honest, helpful, friendly, smart, efficient and trustworthy. They were unwilling to negotiate, but likely because they priced the car fairly. They took extra time to teach me how to use the navigation and the bluetooth. No question I presented by email went unanswered. Example: a couple of weeks after purchase, the battery died while I was at the pharmacy filling prescriptions for my sick husband and son. It was one of those horrible days when it was pouring rain and everyone is sick and you feel like one more thing might just do you in. I called Kyle to ask about the battery. He explained why it had died (totally our fault), asked me where I was (implication: if close he would have come to help me), told me how best to charge it, and even called me later in the day to make sure we got home safely. Now that's some good old fashioned service and it made my day. I had additional follow-up questions about the X3 and they answered every question quickly and thoroughly, exceeding any expectation I could have had. I highly recommend Foreign Motorcars without a single reservation and hope that they are able to grow their business. We need more dealers like them in Boston and beyond. Folks, these guys are the real deal. Go buy your next BMW from them!
Kyle, David and Brad are the best. I have purchased 4 vehicles from them and am continually amazed at their responsiveness, customer service, patience and guidance. There has never been a time in the years that I've dealt with them, that I have been dissatisfied with Foreign Motorcars. I truly enjoy going to see them - whether it's for an oil change or to purchase a new car - it is always a pleasure! It's so nice to work with professionals who actually love what they are doing!
I had been looking for a BMW 335 for a long time and was very particular in the packages I wanted on the car. I came across Foreign Motor Cars and noticed they had what I considered the perfect car. I called Kyle and scheduled a test drive - I showed up the car was ready and Kyle handed me the keys without any pressure. I was trading a car and when I returned from the test drive Kyle gave me an honest evaluation of my trade. As I looked over the car Kyle gave me the rundown of the packages and features and not only could I tell he loved the car as well but he was extremely knowledgeable about BMW’s. I decided I wanted to think about it and left the dealership - Again I was never pressured or bothered as I made my decision. I emailed Kyle later that night and let him know I would take the car and the wheels were in motion. When I arrived the car was clean and Kyle handed me the keys - Being a BMW guy, Kyle and I chatted about other cars on the lot and why they were special or unique and it was really nice just to chat about cars. Foreign Motor Cars is a stand up dealership and Kyle is a true class act. They have definitely won over my business and I will be back when I replace my wife’s BMW.
With kids, work, travel, life etc I don't typically have time to write reviews, but I feel the need to recommend Kyle, Dave and Brad who run Foreign Motorcars in Quincy MA. I have purchased 18 vehicles and 4 motorcycles over the past 17 years across multiple dealerships of all sizes... Ive bought cheap cars and $50k+ cars from small shops to large Infiniti, BMW, Toyota dealers etc so I believe I have a good basis for comparison. QUALITY OF INVENTORY: I'm very picky. If i'm buying a used car it has to run, look, and smell new. No noises, no rattles, no dings, no tears, no scratched rims etc. Its hard to find used vehicles that fit that category. I drive my wife nuts with how picky I am, but as a car guy, I cant help it. Walk their lot and you will see that they only have the highest condition BMW's available. Kyle obviously prides himself on finding the cleanest (on paper and in person) used BMW's around. They go above and beyond to replace, fix, care for each car as needed and its evident. I have walked out of many dealerships if the car isn't perfect and I looked hard for the specific vehicle I bought. If you are as picky as I am and want a used beamer, you need to give this place a look. I was impressed. PEOPLE: Kyle, Dave and Brad were great to work with. Absolutely no pressure and very informative. Kyle me the keys for a solo test drive while he evaluated my trade. He was ready to talk numbers when I returned. There is none of the "let me get my manager" BS. He even took some calls from me from the maternity ward as his twins were just born. One of the best car buying experiences to date. They take the time to address any questions before, during and even well after the sale. Service post sale: I had a small issue with the rear led tail light a few weeks after I bought the car...I called Dave, said come on it, fixed it no questions asked, and I was on my way. In summary, good people helping good people buy really nice cars. Highly recommend to anyone, and Ill be back for another clean BMW once my car purchasing ADD kicks in again soon.
