Just read Pirate's newsletter and saw that BMW Tri-State may be closing also. I certainly hope this is just Pirate endulging in too much holiday cheer. Tri-State has always been there for me and treated me well. Anyone from that area have more info?

Say it isn't so.

This just plain sucks. When Indy closed it was a minor loss (caught them in several lies, ghost service performed, etc). Tri-State is a huge loss. They were good people! I would rather ride 160 miles one way to Tri-State than 50 miles to Indy. I wonder if Ft. Wayne is closing also? Savoy, IL?

May have to sell my '04 RS due to lack of dealer support.

Blchandl2,

Sit tight before listing your ride - I think there's a new dealer in the works which may be open sooner rather than later.....

I'll let the group know something as soon as I hear.....

See ya!

Savoy is quite open for years to come.

Hi All,

I was just in there today picking up my GT. From what I understand, the doors will close by the end of next week. The service manager (Jeff) will be starting at the dealer in Columbus sometime in the next 2 weeks.

There is a new owner getting lined up and they should have something opened sooner rather than later in Cincinnati.

There is still a demand in the area for a BMW shop so even if this latest round falls through I wouldn't think that we'd go long without one....
