I spent 6yrs at a local BMW dealer as an ops manager. For a gearhead, it was the best time of my life. It was stressful as my dealer was a high-volume store and the clientele was definitely not the easiest to please. However, I loved seeing the local BMW product specialist stop by with camoed or pre-released cars, and getting to drive everything under the sun. Especially fun getting to drive trade-ins like Mclarens, Ferraris, Porsches, and even the cheaper stuff I wouldn't regularly get to check out like civic si's focus rs etc.

It definitely makes you appreciate the people and the system. Dealers get allot of flack and allot of times its earned, but working there makes you realize how tough it is and how little control they have. Many of the issues are uneducated clients being unrealistic.

Give it a try if possible, especially if you're a fan of the product.
