BMW dealers in Bay Area, CA
on: November 01, 2018, 03:45:56 PM
So I'm probably going to be picking up a new 2019 s1000xr at the end of the month, I was hoping someone who lives in the Bay Area might be able to tell me what their experiences have been with either of those dealers.

I live in Concord, so the BMW dealer there would be ideal but they are pretty new. BMW of San Francisco has been around a while and has a generally good reputation online but I don't know whether the online reviews on google etc are legit.

The other opinion that would be nice to know, and I did read a lot of the threads here, but a general sense of the newer models, the 2018 more specifically, how many miles are people putting on them and are they behaving well - I do 300 miles a week just commuting and if she's as good as I think she is she will get flogged on weekends too.

I've got an '18 and at 2500 miles in about 3 months, it developed a weepy oil leak from the water pump (little black plug on the bottom). Just replaced under warranty and I'm watching it now. Otherwise, it's been great despite a bit of a creaky throttle assy which is seems like many BMW's share.

Yep the water pump leak, is quite well known. But it is a minor fault that once repaired, does not seem to re-appear. I have personally not had any problems on my bike (2015). But I am very confident with the bmw back up here in the UK. And they do seem to fix the faults without any quibble.... Enjoy the bike.
