All is good here, enjoyed the road trip home as much as one can across Ks. and eastern Co.
Review wise, I have to admit that I was apprehensive buying a car site unseen out of state. It came together as one would hope. Thanks for picking us up at airport, and the car (X3) was as described in our phone conversations. Pat is enjoying it.
1995 BMW 530i
Top notch from end to end. I couldn't be happier with my 1995 530i, truly one of a kind. Whether you're a life long BMW enthusiast or first time buyer, look no further than Bavarian Auto Group. Thanks Mike and Janet, you guys rock!
I sent in my request to be contacted and I had an email back that same day with a phone number to give them a call. It was later in the evening but I decided to call and leave a message. To my surprise, I got an answer. It was the owner and we spent quite a long time discussing the car and connected as fellow car guys quickly. Initially, we did have some confusion on meeting times for when I was going to see the car and found out after the fact that I was 2nd in line for the car. Once that person passed on the car, I was quite happy to come by and take it for a test drive, and Bav. AG was very accommodating as we worked through the buying process. I am thoroughly impressed by the quality of the vehicles for the price! The owner is a walking encyclopedia of BMW knowledge and was a joy to "talk shop" with. I would highly recommend working with Bavarian Auto Group. You can rest assured you are buying a quality BMW that was well taken care of and will continue to last!
We're so HAPPY!
I had been looking for over 6 months for the perfect pre-owned BMW X5 to replace our X3. I found a listing for a beautiful, low mileage, X5 on Car Gurus at Bavarian Auto Group. At first, I was nervous to buy a car out of state, but after several conversations with Mike, I felt that it was worth it to check it out. Mike loves what he does, loves BMW's, and is so friendly! I felt comfortable asking him all my questions, and he was available to make the entire process (buy & trade) as easy as possible.
On the day of our appointment, we left much later than we had hoped. We had a 3.5 hour drive to make, with our 11 month old, and 3 year old. To make things easier, Mike drove over an hour to meet us! We went through the whole process at a location of our choice. I've never signed papers to buy a car at Starbucks before, but that in itself was COOL! Also, he brought us special goodies for our kids, and generous extras for the car.
Our X5 exceeded our expectations in every way possible, and we couldn't be happier. If you're in the market for a pre-owned BMW that looks and drives like a brand new car, just put Mike on it! His cars are diamonds, they are 100% worth the wait, and a drive out of state.
Hearts from Nebraska!

I bought my car back on February at Bavarian from Mike and Janet. It was a great pleasure to work with them and the service they provided was exceptional. As a guy traveled almost 7000 miles to get here, I don't necessarily know much about the regulations and procedures to get my car going on the road safely and legally here. However, Janet and Mike helped my alone the way and made it rather easy and simple for me. They are knowledgeable and passionate about the work they do and nothing beats that.

Mike and Janet ... hard to find the words on this one. They found my wife Debbie the dream convertible she didn't even realize would be the perfect car for her. I told Janet she wanted a little low cost convertible play car...not black...:-)...and then we discussed a 6 Series for a bit. BOOM...she finds a great potential car and 48 hours we have a beautiful 2007 650i convertible with about 80K miles, Could not be better. The coolest thing is that when Mike finds a gem like this, he gets as excited as his customer.
I can't imagine a better car buying experience then with Mike and Janet Kaplan. Thank you.
2006 BMW M6 Coupe
This is by far the best dealership experience I have ever had, Mike knows anything and everything about BMWs and answers any questions you have quickly and precise. I recently purchased a 2006 BMW m6 from Mike and Janet and it has been the most amazing vehicle that I have ever owned. They are both so kind and helpful and it is amazing how much love they have for the bmws they sell. If anyone out there is looking for a BMW this is the place to go!!!

Best dealer experience ever! They are so much better than the big dealers. No B.S - just great product. Mike's knowledge of all BMW's is second to none. I will never shop for a BMW anywhere else. And I experienced the best test drive ever!

2012 BMW 750i M Sport
It's hard to really explain how fun this car buying experience was. I knew I wanted a big BMW sedan but didn't know where to find a gently used highly optioned BMW with rear wheel drive. Mike and Janet with Bavarian are where you need to look. They are passionate about BMW's and their attention to detail throughout the sale and the cleanliness of the business and cars shows how much they care. They went through the car's history with me making sure I knew everything that had been done. My next BMW will be through them. Thank you both!

I was very impressed and pleased with my experience at Bavarian Auto Group. Mike and Janet are awesome to work with and some of the most low pressure folks I have ever met at a dealer. Can't recommend them enough!

2001 BMW 750iL V-12
Mike and Janet have become family friends without even having met each other!!! They are great to work with, and Mike has an encylopedic knowledge of BMW and all of its models and he is such a perfectionist..I purchased a 2001 750 iL which Mike had sold 13 years prior to a longstanding client. The car was and is immaculate, and the presale prep Mike and his crew did is without question better than the finest car dealerships in the country.. I have advised all of my colleagues of Bavarian AG..you will not find the professionalism, dedication, honesty, and attention to detail anywhere else..and fairness in price is always a top priority with Mike and he strives to find the best value for his clients..Don't waste your time anywhere else..because there is no anywhere else in my book!!!
2014 BMW 750Li xDrive M Sport
Glad to recommend and commend Mike, Janet and the Bavarian team. Where else are you greeted by the owners, shown an inventory of carefully selected vehicles that meet Mike's demanding standards, and close the deal with all the documents and direction needed to complete ownership registration thanks to Janet's attention to every detail. Thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike and Janet-and thoroughly enjoying my "new" 7 series! This is my second time buying a BMW from Bavarian-I'll be back when it's time for the third one!
2015 BMW 535i xDrive M Sport
“I have always hated the car buying process. My general lack of trust with car dealerships has always made my car buying experience forgetful and had me dreading looking for a new car. After contacting Mike and Janet, walking into their humble office and showroom, I was completely at ease. Mike's expertise with BMW's and eye for premium, high end used BMW's put all of my distrust aside. After spending 2 hours chit chatting about BMW and many other things the first night, I knew that I would never by another BMW elsewhere. The entire process was clean and easy and I'm thankful I found them. I highly recommend Mike and Janet if you are in the market for a used car!”
2014 650I M Sport
I have purchased multiple vehicles from Bavarian. Mike and Janet do a great job locating the vehicle you want and stay within the price point you discuss. They are very particular and have certain standards they use to source their vehicles. There is always follow-up after the sale. I would recommend Bavarian to anyone looking for a quality used BMW.

2015 750 XI
Our friends recommended Bavarian as they had purchased several BMWs from them and were quite pleased.
Our experience with them was excellent. They were able to obtain the car we wanted at a fair price with no surprises. The key reason we decided to use them was Mike's extensive Bimmr knowledge and his ability to physically pre-check the car we were targeting. This helped insure we were getting the car we thought we were.
Communication was excellent throughout the process. The car was beautifully prepped prior to pickup.
We love our new baby!

2015 BMW 435i xDrive M Sport Coupe
had a wonderful buying experience with Bavarian AG - and I live in Dallas, TX! I found my vehicle using an online search. The search engine I used includes an algorithm that ranks pricing within the market, and ranked the vehicle as a "great value". I've been researching for a few months, and I knew this to be true - especially given all the high-end packages that were loaded on the car. Janet and Mike both were extremely friendly and very helpful on the phone. They provided me a detailed history of the car as well as the carfax. They've been doing BMW work exclusively for many years and it's obvious they love what they do and know anything and everything about BMWs. I sent pics of my vehicle for them to review (trade-in) and we sealed the deal. I drove 8 hours to KC and then drove 8 hours back home in my new 435i Xdrive M-Sport (which I absolute LOVE!). They even called and checked on me a couple of times on the drive home just ensure I had a safe trip and that I was happy with the vehicle. You just don't get better service than this. In a few years, when I'm ready to upgrade again - I will give Mike and Janet a call. It was well worth the 16 hour drive. I truly can recommend them without hesitation - they are fair, honest and wonderful people.
2006 BMW 530xi Sport
Well, I was referred to Mike and Janet by the shop that services my wife’s car after bringing in some other cars for them to check, so started watching the Bavarian Auto Group website and found a car that I was kind of interested in. Moving from an SUV, so really thinking about an X5. Mike had sold the car 6 years earlier and fully knew it. I wasn’t sure he really wanted to sell it, but you can only have so many. Mike and Janet were great to work with and we parted friends. The car is beautiful and fun to drive. This is my 5th BMW, two others from dealers and two from private parties. I really wish I had known the Kaplans earlier. Deal with confidence with these two extremely knowledgeable people.
2012 Audi A4
I recently purchased a 2012 Audi A4 from Bavarian. I had heard about Mike though the grapevine and was actually looking for a 3 Series BMW when I saw the Audi on their website and gave them a call.
The main point of this testimonial beside the fact that this was a spotless vehicle after their tremendous detailing job, is that buying a car from Mike and Janet is the exact opposite of having to deal with dealerships. Relaxed and comfortable is how I would describe the experience from start to finish.
They helped me through every aspect of the purchase, down to making it seamless to license and tag. They also gave me helpful hints to aid in the selling my previous car, including tax implications.
Without a doubt, when I am in the market for another vehicle, I will contact them first.

2013 BMW 535i xDrive
This being my first BMW I planned to take my time in finding the right vehicle. After several months searching the online dealer ads and contacting a few across the country it became clear that I needed help in finding a quality car at a reasonable price. A friend recommended Mike and Janet for their BMW knowledge and passion. They are much better equipped to do a nationwide search and have access to vehicles before they ever show up on a dealer’s lot. The BMW model specific knowledge I gained from Mike and Janet before the purchase was invaluable and helped me make better decisions. I enjoyed the purchase process and am happy with the vehicle they tracked down for me. I would recommend them to anyone in the market for a quality pre-owned BMW.
Baldwin City, KS
This was my first out of state purchase of a vehicle in a long time (sight unseen no less). Mike and Janet were both great to deal with throughout the entire process. Mike’s passion and knowledge of BMW’s really shines and helped me make a great decision on a low mileage 540i! His patience and descriptions of the vehicle and its history provided me the assurance I needed to make the transaction happen. The car was exactly as described when i first laid eyes on it. Additionally Janet’s experience and expertise with title work out of state was amazing and helped me ensure I could register the car in my home state (NC). I am very happy with my purchase and would absolutely buy from them again!
GregApex, North Carolina
This was my second experience buying from Mike and Janet, and I wouldn't do it any other way. They go out of their way to make a purchase a stress-free and completely satisfying event. This car is everything I was looking for and more, because Mike selects only cars he is proud to sell, and puts the finishing touches on in preparation for the new owner-to-be that make it a car to be cherished. His love of, deep knowledge of, and experience with BMW's lends unbeatable confidence to a purchase as an unquestionable value. He lives and breathes BMW's and it shows in his demeanor and the cars he selects. He'll always be my go-to guy. It's no wonder he has so many repeat clients.Thanks again, Mike and Janet....Tim SippolaEmporia, Kansas
2012 BMW 335i M Sport convertible
I was a patient first time buyer from Bavarian and was rewarded to my complete satisfaction. My pearl white, loaded 2012 BMW 335Ci was secured at the right price and presented to me in excellent condition. Working with Mike and Janet was easy and pleasurable. I give them both high marks for understanding my needs and for their integrity in all dealings. Guaranteed I will use their skilled services again.
2013 BMW X5
When we bought our first BMW (X3) from BavarianAG in 2008, we knew it would be the only place to go for future BMW purchases. The X3 has been awesome, but it was time for a bigger X5. We spotted a new listing on BavarianAG website before imagery had been uploaded. After contacting Mike, he immediately texted imagery and video of the X5 arriving on the delivery truck. Done deal. We live in West Des Moines, Iowa and Mike and Janet worked around our travel plans to arrange pickup - on a Saturday evening. Mike's knowledge and passion for the BMW brand and Janet's explanation of the paperwork and attention to detail combined to create a stress-free, car-buying experience. Thank you Mike and Janet.

2007 BMW x3
Mike and Janet have the uncanny ability to make the impossible, possible. They managed to turn the daunting, commonly exhausting, consistently frustrating car buying experience into an absolute joy. After coming into the shop to check out my future x3, Mike was able to answer all of my questions, and questions that I didn’t even know to ask. He showed me the ins and outs of the x3, touched on all of its unique features, and walked through the history of the vehicle to put any concerns that I had to rest. Once I decided to move ahead with the purchase, Janet streamlined all of the necessary paperwork making closing on the car a breeze. Since driving off the lot, the x3 has continued to exceed all expectations – I could not have asked for a better ride. Mike and Janet’s BMW and business acumen are second to none. If you want to find your dream car AND experience outstanding customer service AND an overall great car buying experience (in other words if you don’t like to compromise) than look no further – bavarian AutoGroup is the best and last stop you will need to make.
THANK YOU MIKE AND JANET!!

The pleasure I experienced in purchasing my 2013 BMW 750i xDrive MSport from Bavarian AG. Mike and Janet represent the epitome of customer service. The 2013 was my second BMW from these two knowledgable and very nice people. I continue to recommend persons interested in BMWs that they visit with Mike and Janet. Buying a new car can be a great experience, as it should be.

2007 BMW 750Li
The car I purchased, a 2007 BMW 750LI was amazing and what really added to it was the knowledge and 'can-do' attitude of Mike and Janet. They make sure to answer any and all questions that you have and ensure that you are completely comfortable with the car. I can only say that in terms of the vehicle they really made sure that it was 100% and that nothing was out of place in it.They care about customers not only when they sign and hand over the keys but after wards too. It was refreshing as to how easy they made the process and there is in no doubt in my mind that I will be a repeat customer. I’m talking my sister in to trading her Caddy CTS in on a 5 series. Thanks Mike and Janet, I want to meet you guys for some good Jazz at the Blue Room…
North Kansas City, Missouri
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Mike and Janet for my recent purchase of a beautiful 550i M Sport. Without a doubt, Mike and Janet presented the best conditioned used vehicle that I have ever come across. For myself, when buying a used car, particularly a rare model luxury car, the experience can become stressful as I typically cannot find an automobile that meets my highly scrutinizing expectations. I generally have to "settle" for the car that will require the least amount of work after purchase to bring it to my standards. At Bavarian Auto Group, they simply choose to not cut corners and prepare these fine automobiles in the manner which they deserve. Both mechanically and aesthetically, Bavarian Auto Groups cars are of the highest quality. This is the first car transaction in which I can say the vehicle exceeded my standards at delivery and needed nothing. Mike and Janet clearly take a great deal of pride in offering vehicles of the highest quality and condition. This along with their passion for and knowledge of the cars in which they are selling, left me extremely pleased and with the confidence to recommend them to not only my friends and family but to other car enthusiasts that expect the best.

2015 BMW 650i xDrive Coupe
I had been looking for a car for quite some time but found nothing that I wanted locally. My on line search led me to Bavarian Auto Group and “the car”. Not only was it what I was looking for but literally the best price in the country. I was somewhat apprehensive about buying the car long distance but Mike quickly made me feel comfortable with his knowledge about BMW’s, his passion and pride for his business. From the day we met to the day I picked up the car it was the best car buying experience I’ve ever had and a pleasure working with both Mike and Janet. The car is a dream, has exceeded my expectations and as it is advertised by Bavarian. With that said my next BMW will also come from Bavarian as they have earned my business for years to come.
2010 BMW M6 Coupe
This was my first experience purchasing a car from a long distance. There is a considerable bit of angst in that process. Mike and Janet were both very professional. The car was as represented--a real gem. They were helpful in all the arrangements, fair in dealing over price and trustworthy through all aspects of the purchase. I would not hesitate to use them again. Mike's knowledge of BMWs is encyclopedic and his love for that brand is evident.
2007 Porsche 911 Carrera
The opportunity to work with Mike and Janet on the purchase of my 2007 Porsche 911 Carrera was unlike any car buying experience I have ever had before. I love cars but dread buying them. It feels as if it is the buyer versus the dealer. Mike and Janet worked with me, not against me. In fact, they did nearly everything before I even got to their dealership. Mike took the time to talk to me and get to know me and my motivation for buying the car, discuss the car and answer all of my questions. Janet coordinated all of the logistics so I would be ready to walk in with everything ready to go. The car was exactly as described and exactly what I was looking for. Bavarian AG sets the standard for the car buying experience. They know their cars, they love what they do, and they make the use of your time efficient and pleasant. This time I was buying a specific vehicle and found Bavarian AG. The next time anyone in my family needs a vehicle I will only be working with Mike and Janet.
Mike/Janet.....The car is everything I dreamed it would be.
2007 BMW 750i Sport
My experience of buying a high quality used BMW in partnership with Mike & Janet Kaplan was like nothing I’ve ever experienced. Mike was somehow able to find the proverbial “needle in a haystack” and I am now driving an amazing (and rare optioned) 2007 750i Sport. Mike & Janet are as knowledgeable and as committed to only the highest quality used BMWs as anyone I’ve ever met. I will never make a move on a used BMW without working through Mike & Janet. They are absolutely amazing. Thank you!
2008 BMW 535xi Sport
I recently purchased a 535xi (my first BMW) from Mike and Janet. I have to say that it was the best experience that I have had buying a car or any other vehicle. My wife and I spent a Friday afternoon with Mike and Janet, learning about the car we were interesting in and learning about BMWs in general. The afternoon was a seminar on the operation and proper care of a fine car. Mike has a passion for the cars that he sells, and his aim is that BMW owners not only have a great experience with their cars but also take proper care of their cars. Janet was also a pleasure to work with, and she was quite efficient and helpful with the paperwork. My next BMW will no doubt come from Mike and Janet although I will be in no hurry to give up the one I have in my garage. Thanks, Mike and Janet.

2006 BMW 750Li Sport
The best car buying experience I have had in a very long time. This is the 2nd BMW I have purchased. The knowledge Mike and Janet possess in regards to the BMW is remarkable. It felt good to purchase a car from someone and not feel as if I was being had.

2008 BMW 650i Sport Coupe
Just got back from a quick drive in my "new to me" 2008 BMW 650i. What a ride and what a buy! I went to Bavarian Auto Group with no intentions of buying but once I saw the car mental ownership began right away.
The car was exactly as described and looked even better in person. Mike at Bavarian Auto Group is a bigger Beemer freak than me. He was super knowledgable about all aspects of this car (inside and out) and addressed some minor cosmetic issues without hesitation. I'm sure I will pick his brain in the future because he obviously has years of experience working on ultimate driving machines.
Financing was also quick and painless. Janet, clearly a huge BMW fan as well, was very helpful and knew just what to do to get approved quickly. The check arrived next day!
This is my second BMW, I also have an '06 X-5. I have owned the car for a month and look forward to pampering this beast for a long time. I am sure I will be in the market for another Beemer in the future and I will definitely start my search with Bavarian Auto Group. What an Uber experience!
