    Info on southern Calfiornia

    I am heading to Twentynine Palms via Alexandria VA from Germany to work at the Maine Training Center. I have a 2004 645 Coupe. Can anyone tell me where the closest BMW dealer is and how they are? I have been in Germany for the last 25 years and am a total stranger to the states and even more so to Calfornia, as the last time I was there was in 1967 on a troop train from Fort Hood to Oakland to board a three week cruise to Southeast Asia.
    I would sincerely welcome any suggestions.
    Thanks in advance for your help

    The closest is Palm Springs which is just

    down the road. There are also ones in Riverside and Ontario which are further away. You're covered though.

    Thanks Ken
    I appreciate the information. About 80% of the people I talk to look at me like Ihave a third eye in my forehead when I tell them where I am going but a lot of people say it is a great place to go. I am gonna wait and see. I did 25 years in Baumholder Germany and the Army swears that is the armpit of the world and I ate it up.

    Actually - BMW of Riverside has moved ...

    they are a few blocks away from the address in KENL's post. They now are located at 3060 Adams Street, Riverside, CA. (951) 785-4444. Great dealership - I highly recommend them!

    I agree with Greg. BMW Riverside is where I go for parts when I can't locate them anyplace else. They have a teriffic showroom, great parts department, clean repair facility, and the people aren't stuffy.

    That's Quite an Inventory of Rides You've Got

    there, Jim. I'm guessing your kids are of driving age. Did you say you live in San Bernardino? I'm in Riverside.

    Re: That's Quite an Inventory of Rides You've Got

    The boys turned 14 Friday. My daughter turns 16 Wednesday. My wife turns...uh no.

    The Red Mazda has sat covered since my Mom died in '01. Has 36K babied miles. My daughter gets that when she grows up.

    The boys likely will get the Tibs when they grow up (they'll be 18+ when I've got em paid off).

    The 86 has been my project for the last year. It just waits for a paint job. The rest is gravy.. putting all the new parts back on. My next project may be an old Jag (80's with Chevy Drivetrain).

    The Suburban is when the clan goes out.

    The 535i is for sale. Dirt cheap. I mean cheap. Did I say cheap? (Leave me alone mods!!!)

    I'm actually in Highland, but do a lot of business in Riverside.

    Drop me a line. We'll go take Geez to lunch. It was his birthday. He's in Palm Springs and I've been going out there every Friday.

    29P is a desert hellhole, of course :-)

    but nearby Joshua Tree Nat'l Park is a beautiful place.
    A friend of mine, a Marine, has been in Twentynine Palms for quite a while, even bought a house down there. Email me (just change "u" to "y" before .org) if you wish, maybe I'll connect you guys.
