What’s a weekend in the Hamptons without a little luxury?
The Hamptons to Hollywood crew headed out East last weekend and partnered with one of our favorite brands, BMW, for a weekend of fun, sun, revelry, and a little decadence, as always. BMW of Southampton was AMAZING and gave us the 228i xDrive convertible to cruise in from Southampton to Montauk to give us the true Hamptons experience. The entire team at the Southampton dealership was exceptional. Not only do they take amazing care of their vehicles, but they have that certain Long Island charm that you just can’t find anywhere else. It was like Dad was giving us the keys to his prized possession for the weekend, not like we were dealing with an international corporation; they just provide that family-esque feeling as soon as you step into the showroom. And it isn’t hard to see why; BMW of Southampton won the most recent award for being the Center of Excellence, which recognizes the top car dealerships in the country who have achieved outstanding levels of performance.
As soon as we snagged the keys, Danielle Franz, founder of top Hamptons marketing firm, Mix Media Plus, met us out for a fun editorial shoot. Not only is she a marketing maven, but also has looks that could KILL. #werq
The car handled like a dream; responsive, super smooth, and with the wind blowing our hair all the way down Route 27 with Taylor Swift blasting, the whole scene was kinda perfect. With 240 horsepower that can take you from 0-60 in five seconds, we were set for whatever adventure we wanted to embark on. Not only did the body of the vehicle turn heads while we cruised, but the beautifully stitched tan leather interior kept us comfy and cozy throughout the entirety of our weekend. Synching our cell phones to the car’s computer also proved to be super-easy for those drivers who aren’t as technologically advance (ie: our founder, Kyle Langan), so if he can figure it out, you know BMW is working hard to create an all-around universally understandable vehicle. It was the perfect ride to head out for some brunch (see the yumminess below) and soak up the sun.
For Jon’s first Hamptons experience, it was definitely the way to go and the perfect way to see the East End. We HIGHLY recommend everyone stop by BMW of Southampton if you’re looking at a car to keep in the Hamptons for the summer, or want something a bit more permanent to jet between the hamlets and the city. From the impeccable service you’ll receive, to the outstanding brand that they are selling, you can rest assured they’ll match each driver with the car that distinctly fits them perfectly. What could be better?
The only downside for us? Having to give it back!
