Thank you Brian!
This is has been a long time coming. After a not so pleasant experience with a big dealership in Atlanta, and not being told upfront about the timing of production and potential arrival of a car I ordered, I requested my deposit back. Discouraged with trying to find what I was looking for, my wife suggested that I call or go and see Brian who we have done business with in the past. After going into South Atlanta Motorsport’s website and checking the inventory on-online, I saw the car! I could not believe it…I had driven by the lot and had not seen anything that I was interested it. He had ordered this beautiful BMW 4 series, and had it inside, in the show room. It was not the grand coupe that I was looking to get, but it had everything else and more… in that it was a convertible!!! Never thought about getting a convertible. So, I showed the on-line pictures to my wife, we went to see Brian, and test drove the car, and a couple of days later, I picked it up.
If you have never done business with Brian, I highly encourage you to see him if he has something in his inventory that you like. He is customer service-centric, a straight shooter, he is fair and competitive with his prices, and most importantly, he is someone you can trust because he is all about providing a great car buying experience so you go back to him when you are ready for your next vehicle. Take it from someone that has bought 3 other cars from him before this last purchase.

I just completed my third purchase from South Atlanta Motorsports. My experience with Brian has always been very professional and I have come to trust his judgement completely. My last two purchases were a Porsche 911 Carrera S and a BMW M5, both I purchased sight unseen.
Thanks again Brian!
I searched for quite a while (nation-wide) looking for the exact 981 Porsche Boxster that I wanted. South Atlanta Motorsports had a great vehicle with the color/features that I wanted and was priced competitively/below market. Their website was professional, complete, well organized, and included lots of good pics/info of the car, etc. I reached out to the owner/operator Brian, who was easy to deal with via email, text and telephone, and was extremely responsive to all my (many) questions. I'm a service member who moves around a lot and was located out of the country while car shopping. Brian catered to my situation with ease, even personally driving the car to the local Porsche dealership when I requested a Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI) on the car since I wasn't there to inspect it myself. Brian's impeccable customer service continued throughout the entire car buying, pick-up, titling, and vehicle registration process. He's an honest and professional dealer who deals directly with his customers, runs a well-managed dealership, is hands-on, never made me feel rushed to "close the sale," is comfortable dealing with out-of-state buyers, service members, new and repeat customers, etc. Brian will go the extra mile for his customers - anyone who's ever car-shopped before knows this is a rarity in the business. Like many others have, I highly recommend buying from South Atlanta Motorsports with-out hesitation. I will certainly be a repeat customer and I'm loving my new Porsche!

Here's the deal; after doing our homework on what we wanted and what our essentially brand new trade-in was going to be worth, we shopped around with three local dealerships and got dismal results. We kept walking away from the high pressure sales tactics, over priced vehicles and ridiculous trade in offers, shaking our heads and saying " you have got to be kidding me"! Then we found what looked to be a gem online a South Atlanta Motorsports & skeptically made the 100 mile drive to check things out. We had three other dealers lined up to see as well, just in case.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE! From arrival, to drive away in our (really was a gem) Jeep, we were pleased. F. Brian Gwaltney was a straight shooter from the start. He even went so far as to pull up the same internet sites that we were using and discuss the pro's and con's of every available option to get us a fair deal, ALL WITHOUT US EVER FEELING PRESSURED! When my husband said " Any deal that you can't sleep on before making, isn't worth making", he replied, " Your absolutely right. Drive the Jeep home tonight, sleep on it, back tomorrow and then decide." WHAT! That's unheard of. There were also no little add- on's that add up when it's time to sign. AND when Brian saw that The JEEP was advertised for less on a website that we had not seen, he gave us the lower price. We are telling everyone with ears how happy we are with the entire experience.
