Chicago BMW

What happened to Chicago BMW? We used to get parts at a 20% discount. Now I cant find their website. Did they go out of business? Are there any alternatives out there for discounted OEM parts?

Chicago BMW is no more.

You can order from BMW Motorcycles of Countryside and use the PROMO15 code to save 15%. Orders over $150 get free shipping.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Some of the guys from Chicago BMW went out to the countryside dealership.
Nice location, great showroom with lots of farkles, nice bike selection, new and used, nice place to go and deal with
The guy who owned Chicago BMW also owned the Harley dealership. It also closed down not long after. Not exactly a big surprise.
