Good Afternoon Michael, Kevin & Ron
It was great meeting you guys, and I really am impressed with your work. Certainly, I'll be spreading the word about Michael's shop around D.C., Miami & London. Discovery has quite a few car nuts like us...
Thank you for the great car. She drove like a dream; attracted crowds at every rest stop...and caravanned with the motor cycle groups along most of the drive home. Please extend my gratitude to Alex!

Thanks for all your help ... I am like a little kid now... We are going to try to plan some short get aways so that I can enjoy driving the new car. Thank you to all at D&M you are all so great and easy to deal with. We were quite surprised to be handed the keys and told to take the car for a drive, with out the third degree... What a pleasant experience at D& M...

I would just like to say what a great job that all of you did in helping me with the purchase of my 1995 six speed Competition Yellow Corvette Convertible, I was very nervous about making such a large internet purchase. Bob and Mike were very courteous and patient with all my questions and concerns. They described the vehicle with the utmost integrity. I could not ask for better service from these guys. To top it off, my delivery driver Tom brought the vehicle and treated it with kid gloves. He was very kind and pleasant and carefully brought the car right to my front door in the time frame he had told me. My family and I really enjoyed talking and exchanging stories with him. I wanted to write this to let you know how much I love the car and tell all you guys what great service you gave me.

I just want to say thank you again for the great service from you, your brother Michael and Kevin. This is the second time in 5 years that I have purchased a Corvette from your dealership and its been great from start to finish when dealing with all of you. You guys are second to none and very helpful in every aspect of the business at hand. In closing, I will always recommend your place to everyone I know. Thank you again.

I just want to thank you all for the outstanding customer service you provided in the purchase of my ZO6. To be honest, I was in a bit disoriented from all the travel from Afghanistan. It didn't really hit me that I was driving a Corvette ZO6 until the next morning when the wife and I were checking out of the hotel down the street...lol. The drive to St Louis was awesome. I love the car but it gets entirely too much attention. It took awhile getting in and out of gas station because folks were taking pics and asking questions. Guess that's something I have to get use to...NO PROBLEM!
Anyway, I'm back in Afghanistan and wanted to drop you guys a line just to say thanks to the staff at D&M Motorsports.
2008 ZO6, Proud Owner
I have got to tell you how pleased I am with the car. The exterior is in great shape as you described and the interior is real nice as well. The wheels look almost brand new with no scratches or rash. You delivered on your description of the car, and I look forward to buying from you again in the future. You never know...I may go with a Corvette next time! Let Angie know I said thanks.
I have been a long time client D&M with many purchases. The standard they set for the quality of inventory is unmatched by any dealership I have been to. The staff if professional and knowledgeable of the variety of vehicles they inventory. I have never heard “I don’t know” from them. I would challenge anyone to test their knowledge and quality of inventory. This will be the last place you ever shop. If you want something they do not currently have in their inventory then just send them your wish list and they will find it for you. Happy shopping to you all and thank you to D&M for all that you do for us savvy shoppers.
Purchased a 2001 Corvette with 15,000 miles. Very pleased with the car and service received. I purchased the car in Illinois and mentioned that I had a trade-in but it was located in Florida. Michael arranged to have a dealer friend in Florida look at the car and we agreed on a trade-in value. D&M then shipped the Corvette to Florida at their expense. I paid the top end of the price range for a 2001 but was willing to do so because of the condition and the very low mileage. Angie was very helpful in handling the sale.
I'm not one to read or respond to Internet reviews but I had to make an exception. I have purchased many cars in my days and this deal was handled with white glove service. The entire deal went flawless from the time I walked in there showroom to the moment the car was delivered to me. There was a small issue with the battery being low and they sent someone out to my house to replace the battery. All I can say is I have owned 30+ High End cars, and this was the most fun and enjoying purchase I have had. Thumbs up to everyone at D&M.
Angie, was GREAT to work with, and was very helpful, and friendly. The Vette was delivered on time, and in tip-top shape. I've had questions since receiving the car, and everyone's been very forth coming.

It's been a couple months since I purchased my car, but while pondering how to express my happiness I came across this site. First of all, I am the proud owner of a gorgeous 2009 Rolls-Royce. My Rolls is something I waited to buy for a couple of years, waiting to find my car a couple years used to save money.
So I find my Rolls on eBay. I had a couple of questions, but the online video these guys put together answered all my questions and basically confirmed that this was my car. Made a call, it was still available, so I left them a small deposit and purchased the car. My paperwork was overnighted, and once I paid for the car they had shipping set up in 24 hours. My car arrived (beautifully clean might I add) at my house in CA less than 72 hours later. I jumped behind the wheel for my FIRST DRIVE in a Rolls! Now, its almost 4,000 miles later, I absolutely love the car!
Thanks guys...it was so easy to make such a huge purchase, why would I consider anyone else? Next time I'm in Chicago, I'm gonna stop in and meet you guys!
We had a great experience with D&M Motorsports buying a corvette, we took Amtrak into Chicago and were picked up by Dave and Angie and they made us feel like old friends. The Corvette we bought was all and more that was shown to us on the their internet site. Everything they did for us was first class and I have all the confidence in the world sending some one to them to buy a car as we did over the internet . Thanks again.

I was looking for a 2003 50TH Anniversary Corvette. Angie was kind enough to show me a bunch of cars including the Convertible, 6 speed, with only 8,175 miles. D&M had the "Best" car at the Bloomington Show. A friend of mine, also a judge at the show also advised me to take a close look at the beauty. After careful inspection and a little sole searching, the decision was made to purchase the "Best of Show". D&M made the sale easy, clean and memorible. The little plastic toy has been everything expected. I have had several "Vetts" in the past included a 40th Anniversary. That my friends is the reason why this car was purchased. There is a strong possibilty a few more toys may be on the horizon in the future.

In December 2011 I purchase a 2004 Boxster from D&M Motorsports. I had been looking for a low mileage used Boxster for a couple of years and this one seemed too good to be true. The price was less than what was being asked from private sellers but I did not have time to travel to Chicago to take a test drive. Regardless, I decided to buy the car. They assured me the car was everything as represented on their web site. D&M delivered the car to Suwanee Georgia as part of the original purchase price and I was amazed - it really was better than represented on their web site. They walked me through the remote buying process and responded on a timely basis to all of my requests. I recommend D&M Motorsports to one and all for their professionalism and customer service (and by the way - the Boxster is a blast).

We live in Naples Fl…it was a little unsettling purchasing a car off the internet… but D&M Motorsports were professional from the first call all the way to the delivery of our car.
They helped us through the entire process and went above and beyond with all the paperwork. The car was shipped and we had possession in a few short days. Best of all the car was exactly how they described it… perfect condition.
They gave us a fair value for our 2004 Corvette and we are in love with our 2008 Corvette. We highly recommend D&M Motorsports…

I had a great a experience with this dealership. They were very informative and made me feel very comfortable with my first purchase, sight unseen with a two-way shipment across the several states (included a trade).

Why buy a car from D&M? We'll tell you why!
We have a large collection of 60's and 70's Muscle Cars that includes 3 Dodge Challengers. When the 2010 Challenger models were offered in Plum Crazy Purple we contemplated buying one. Life got busy and we missed the opportunity to find the "right" one. In April 2012 we decided to see if there was a low-mileage PCP Challenger available. We were picky and wanted a 6-speed with as many options as possible but absolutely no Moon Roof!
They only made 1,398 PCP Challengers in 2010 and 173 6-speed manuals...so when we found one we were pleased it was so close to home. Michael Colando and his entire D&M staff sold us a slightly used (6,600 mile) 2010 Dodge Challenger, in Plum Crazy Purple Metallic, with the majority of the options we had been looking for, at a competitive price.
As an added bonus Michael gave us a reasonable amount for our old reliable daily driver (with 123,000 miles but in good mechanical and cosmetic condition) in trade. Given D&M is a high-end dealer we figured they would have no interest in an "old goat" trade-in. But Michael clearly has many connections in the car world that go outside the collector car and exotic car markets and he found a buyer for the trade immediately. Looks to us like everyone came out a winner!
We could't be happier with our purchase and the buying experience at D&M.

The 2007 Porsche Boxster arrived safely to the Normandin residence at approximately 5:00 PM on Thursday evening, May 10, 2012 as promised. This masculine, meticulously detailed shiny convertible rolled off the enclosed trailer ready to roll, it even sported a nice Birthday card in the glove compartment. What a nice little gesture, THANK YOU :) !
My experience thus far with D&M Motorsports has been superior, beginning with the initial visit through the delivery to my home yesterday, nearly 5 weeks from the day I test drove the Porsche Boxster. Your courteous and friendly business approach sold me from the minute I arrived on your lot and entered your immaculate showroom floor. And honestly Angie, you have made this an exceptional experience by your attentive interaction. Please accept my sincere gratitude for keeping everything rolling along smoothly, even in the midst of a delay or two on my part. Thank you!

Just wanted to drop you a note and thank you again for the beautiful SL you sold me. I love the car and it is even better than I imagined it would be. It is the full package, luxury, power, beauty and does everything effortlessly. I could not be happier, thanx again, I just wanted to let you all know I am very happy. Your whole crew was great.

I purchased a 2005 Corvette from D&M a few months ago. The entire buying experience was top notch. Angie was excellent to work with and was able to answer all my questions. Financing was quick and painless. I never felt like I was "buying a car". No hassles, no pushiness, no problems. After purchasing, David took the time to go over every little feature of the car. Thanks to everyone at D&M!!

Outstanding dealer with which to do business. They were honest when I tried to negotiate a lower price and after I purchased offered to help me with an unexpected and unpredictable repair. The 2003 corvette I bought was in mint condition and I'm very happy! Angie continues to offer sound advice and I know I'd do business with D&M again.

By far the best dealership I have ever worked with! Angie & Mike were wonderful! I got a brand new T-Rex RR they hand delivered the bike/car and walked me through each step. Pricing was perfect lowest in the USA.
2012 T-Rex RR
I had a completely great experience.
From the time Dave met me at the Chicago O'Hare airport until the time I drove away in my almost new (2005 corvette), I couldn't have asked for more. The car was exactly as advertised and what I expected. It was like a new car! This is a family owned and operated business and I felt like I was treated like family.
It is great people like this who make successful businesses, not the U. S. Government.
I wish D & M Motorsports the greatest success in their business and many happy successful years.

I made an appt to see a 50th anniv Vette & drove 2 1/2 hrs, my wife & I were promptly met by Angie, who couldn't help us enough. After looking at the car we negotiated an agreeable price along with a few minor issues that we agreed D&M would address. Angie contacted me a couple of times the next day to give me updates, the minor issues were promptly resolved & we showed up the next day to take delivery of our new Baby..Angie was a super person to deal with & I would recommend D & M to anyone, A very pleasurable experience!!

The 2011 Grand Sport Corvette Story
I owned a 1989 medium blue corvette convertible and must have had too much time on my hands as I started surfing the net and was looking on EBay at various cars, then went and looked at dealers sites. One of the sites I was visited was D & M Motorsports looking at a 1996 Grand Sport. It was then that I saw this awesome looking 2011 Inferno Orange Grand Sport Corvette. Over the next week I tended to visit the site looking and thinking, no I can’t afford it and I’m happy with the car I have.
One morning New Zealand time (July 24th 2012) I decided to phone D & M and spoke to Angie asking a few questions about the car and then I thought that would be it, however 2 days later I phoned back, spoke to Angie and asked if the vehicle was still available, she said yes so I said I wished to purchase it and asked for the bank account details to be emailed to me and I would arrange a bank to bank money transfer to pay for it. The money was transferred through on 30th July. That was the start of many more emails swapped and a few more telephone calls.
I arranged for shipping from California to New Zealand and then the transport from Glen Ellyn IL to Sun Valley CA by DAS Auto Shippers where my new Zealand contact (John) has a shed to accept and load shipping containers etc. I also applied for a permit to keep it LH drive here in New Zealand which was granted by 23rd August.
At the end of August John went over to California and one of the first containers he loaded had my Grand Sport in it and it was shipped to New Zealand. After just over 3 months (6th November) I now have in my possession my car and as Angie said it looks a lot better than
the photos indicated. The next step is for me to get it inspected and registered here in New Zealand.
Wednesday 14th November I left Arrowtown before 6 am and travelled to Invercargill where I had an appointment with Vehicle Testing NZ (VTNZ) to inspect the vehicle, give it a Warrant of fitness and licence it for NZ roads. This was all completed by lunchtime and I now had a legal roadworthy car to drive. It had been a bit of a worry driving it around before that.
Angie from D & M has been great to deal with and I would definitely recommend D & M and Angie as the dealer to talk to and would have no hesitation to go back to them if I was ever looking for another vehicle. By keeping an eye on their web site it is obvious they only deal in top quality cars etc. and I have proof of that.
I have also recommended to others looking for cars from the USA to keep an eye on the D & M site to see what they have and if there is nothing there that suits them then make contact to see if a suitable vehicle can be sourced.
Now that the car is licensed and I have it insured there is going to be many happy and enjoyable miles covered.
Amazing selection of cars, from Lamborghini to Maybach. Dave helped me select an awesome very lo mileage 911 and made the process of buying from out of state extremely simple. I can't compliment this operation enough. I will surely be a return customer.

I recently purchased a 2003 Harley Davidson from this dealership. The entire experience was Perfect, not only was the bike in mint condition and extremely well maintained, but Mike addressed my only concern by including a brand new battery. This is a top dealership and very straight forward sales and management team. Thanks Angie, Mike, Dave and Kevin for a awesome deal! I strongly recommend D & M Motorsports.

My experience was awesome I looked for this car for 8 months and they had the right one. They did everything I asked to the car and even gave me a car cover. This was the best car sale experience I've ever experienced. Had family buy from them and had the same great experience I did. Thanks to Angie and all I will be a return customer. Thanks guys for the best car I've waited for for 42 years.

I am still "wheeling" from the fortunate fate of my wife and I visiting our son's family in West Chicago over Christmas 2012 and finding out that D&M Motorsports was only 6 miles away. I had printed out the listing of the 2004 Corvette Coupe - Magnetic Red Metallic II you had in your great facility. I was not going to buy a Vette until Spring of 2013. But there it was in all it's "splendor".
I appreciated David Bryja's help in our purchase. He offered to put "my Vette" up on the rack so I could inspect the undercarriage. I did see that the rear end had the well known "leaky butt" problem, which I have since fixed. David learned about how low the Vette was when building "special" 2by4s to get it onto your garage rack. He was a tough negotiator!! I gave him an offer ( which included a Vette hat out of the showcase ) and he just smiled and said "OK". He smiled through our whole experience at your great company, mostly because I was so giddy about "my Vette". It was a tough sale !! NOT !!
I also greatly appreciate your help in filling out the 6 inches of paperwork! It was a smooth process, especially since we went next door for lunch! My plates came in the mail February 16 from ATC. I did get a free 30 day Colorado temp tag on Jan 25, so all was good.
Another "fate" was the fact that I drove the Vette home to Colorado Springs ( 1050 miles in two days ) and did not get one snowflake on it. I left my son's house with Gayle following me in her 02 Pontiac GranPrix GTP. I was careful as buying a car one day and driving it a 1000 miles home was a little anxiety rush. I stayed 2 miles behind trucks! I felt like I had a bulls eye on me from a state trooper's point of view. He must be speeding, it's red. I was getting 28 mpg heading towards Kansas City doing 65 mph. My lead-footed wife ( she got stopped 6 times driving a 79 Pontiac Firebird from Dallas to Colorado Springs years ago without one payable ticket ! ) called on her cell and asked if I could "step it up". I said when get west of KC. My mpg went down to 26 at 85 mph.
We have driven the Vette around the Springs as the weather has been wonderful. Right now its in the garage under cover while a blizzard is going on outside. I love Colorado. Still have to experience the removal of the top - probably not till spring.
Thank You again, you and your staff made buying a car a good experience.

D AND M Motorsports is the way to go when looking for a superb sports car. Between Mike, Kevin and Angie they are upfront and honest in their approach, very reputable and experienced in their field. I have purchased 3 corvettes from them in the last eight years all of them have been great. When looking for that dream car one place to go the the number one dealership in illinois. You will be satisfied and have peace of mind with your purchase.

I purchased a used vehicle sight unseen from D&M and had it shipped to my door. Part of the reason I bought sight unseen is because of of the reviews I read on this site. I have to say, the entire experience was exceptional. They were very prompt and accurate at answering my inquires. Even though there were many pictures of the vehicle already provided, additional photos were taken of the vehicle and e-mailed to me. When the vehicle arrived at my door, it was EXACTLY as described. I would do business with them again....A+ !!! Thank you!

We had been looking at several different style of Porsche's and really fell in love with the Boxster. We looked at several different places and by far D and M had the most knowledgeable and friendly service AND exactly what we were looking for in the car. We worked with Dave, Kevin and Angie and felt like old friends by the time our transaction was done. Saw the car online, called and talked about it. We drove the 3 hours up north to go see it and knew it was the one. We wanted something special, not plain ol' assembly line, and this is the place to find that! The car has an amazing aftermarket supercharger and several other special options (including soft AND hard top). The car was spotless, you can tell they are very particular about the quality of cars they handle and it shows! We strongly recommend D and M for exotic and high end car purchases. We also had fun drooling over the other fantastic cars in the showroom. We will definitely be repeat customers! Thanks guys!

i had been wanting a Shelby gt500 since they started coming back out. it took me many years to save the money needed to buy this car. I always wanted the grabber blue with white stripes. when I found the one D&M had for sale I new I wanted the car because it was 2010 grabber blue with red stripe ( never seen the combo before ) I always said I would never buy a car sight unseen but everything just felt right. they were great, helpful and most of all not pushy. I took a big risk in buying this car because if any issues It would take me a long time to save again. Worry no more, car arrived and is unbelievable. It was as advertised if not better. still has new car smell and it has 9,300 miles. I cant be happier that I made this decision. also of note had minor setback with missing wheel lock key and notified D&M to see if they had it. they never found it but offered to pay for replacement. being that's the only misstep I think they came through with flying colors (grabber blue of course) did a little research and did find out this color combo is low production and was also the color combo picked by no other then Mr. Carroll Shelby himself. Thanks D&M

My name is Jim Jamrus and I have been collecting cars for over 46 years. During that time I have had over 12 Corvettes and during the last 3 years I have been collecting High end classic cars. After working on a friends Corvette I got the bug to get another Corvette.I went to the internet site of D&M Motorsports . Their site has all High Def photos that are taken by a professional photographer and I found a pristine 1993 40th Anniversary Corvette with only 1,300 documented miles.I went up to D&M and Dave handled the sale. We settled on a price and I purchased the car that day. Because of the low miles on the car Dave arranged with Mike to deliver the car in an enclosed trailer to my home. Mike is the president & owner of D&M yet he took the time to deliver the car himself.In 67 years I have never taken the time to write a review on anyone,But D&M is truly special. Kevin & Angie were also fun to talk with and my entire experience was like hanging out with good friends.I went back to pick up my plates and ended up buying a 2001 Vette. The truly unusual part of this deal was Mike took my pristine 1940 Chevy coupe in on trade. D&M is a High end sports car and Corvette dealer yet he took an antique car in on trade just to close the deal. I have been back several times just to wander their fantastic show room because every week they get in four or five different cars.Don't take my word for it check out their great website and if you are in the Chicago area stop in and meet them. D&M stands for "Devoted Management."

It is not my custom to do reviews since I have very little faith in the whole review process. Either you're so mad at the product or the seller you write a scathing report or you're so enthralled 2 days after you buy you gush with enthusiasm. No one seems to take the time to evaluate and come to a proper review to help the people looking for information. So I hope my words will be of value for a potential customer. I started looking for a Corvette in October of 2013 all over the Midwest and D & M Motorsports was just one of the dealers I pestered for 4 months, in those months I met with Angie and Dave checking out the cars I previously viewed and all their new arrivals. At no time was I pressured to purchase and every meeting was cordial and all my questions were answered no matter how long it took. In February they got in the car I wanted and I made an offer they agreed too and with the contingency I could have the car checked out. Not only did they agree to my terms they even stored the car for a month till the weather broke and at no charge. The whole experience was 1st class and I was never treated better by a dealer new or used. I believe you have to remember you are dealing with used cars and anything can happen, which is not necessarily the fault of the seller. From the vehicles I looked at D & M all were in excellent shape and quality. The detailing of each car is outstanding and if you view the website and see the pictures you will see what I mean. I have been driving the car for over two months and again I am happy with my purchase and experience; please do your due-diligence and I think you will have the same results.

I believe that "trust" is key when it comes to buying car especially in the case of purchasing a car remotely. The only thing that I had to go on were provided pics over the web and a friendly voice on the other end of the line. But I assure you in a world of small shifty dealerships these guys are NOT THAT! I trust them (which is something that I never thought that I would say about a car dealer). The 2005 lotus that they sold me looks the same if not better sitting in my garage as they did in the pictures. The car runs great and is mint! It is one the finest examples of a low mile Elise that I had come across. They welcome 3rd party inspections and in that case as well the car passed with a perfect score. In short if you are going to "trust" someone with a purchase of a exotic car these are your "go to" guys.
Dave and Angie were super professional. I asked for a lot and they were not only able but excited to help. That was another interesting point: they really love what they do and it shows!
