2018 is off to a great start for most of us and what could be a better way to start off a new year than with a new vehicle.
Unfortunately, with so many choices in today’s marketplace, finding the right vehicle can take time and a lot of effort. This is why nearly 90% of consumers start their adventure online. Whether you start at a manufacturer’s website or a third party site, online shopping for a vehicle can save you a lot of time and frustration.
The Walser Auto Campus – Wichita website has a new tool on our website to assist you with narrowing down your choices. Clicking this link will take you directly to the 2018 Vehicle Buyer’s Guide. You will see sections on leasing vs financing and several questions from our experience of assisting customers with their vehicle selection.
The best part? We are very transparent with our Buyer’s Guide and aren’t pushing an agenda. We present the facts, or “Pros” and “Cons”, of each step of the buying process. We understand that every situation and person is unique and will do our best to make sure your purchase process is unlike any you have experienced before.
See you soon!

It is an exciting time of the year where we close out one year and begin anew. And in the luxury automotive business, that means the arrival of fresh and new vehicle models. With the NINE brands we represent, a month never goes by where we don’t have something brand new or something refreshed to talk about with our customers. 2018 is no exception!
From Lexus , the flagship of the brand, the LS 500 sedan, is coming out with style, power, and a total redesign. From the standard twin-turbo 3.5 liter V6 (producing 415 horsepower!) to optional four-wheel steering, to a TEN-speed transmission, the LS will not disappoint…expect it sometime in January or February.
From Audi, the redesigned Q5 will arrive this spring and will be a technological wonder. With the available Virtual Cockpit, a customizable 12.3-inch video display that replaces the traditional instrument panel, you can choose the design that works best for you!
From Land Rover, the Range Rover Velar, available now, is the latest addition to the ever-growing family. With a wide variety of power-trains available, there is a Velar for everyone. Starting at just $49,900, the Velar is also very affordable for a luxury SUV with the great heritage of Land Rover…
We have updates from Porsche (911 GT2 RS and Panamera/Panamera Turbo S Hybrid) as well as new AMG models from Mercedes-Benz (AMG GT C Convertible and AMG GT R). Also expect to see the Audi A5 Sportback and TT RS sometime soon…and this is just the beginning!
One of the most rewarding events I have been able to witness over my 12+ years in the luxury automotive business is the joy and relief when a new sales associate completes their first transaction.
Aside from the purchase of a home, an automobile transaction is often a complicated, drawn out process, unless you are a “Up Front Price” store (like our stores!). A new associate is virtually always dealing with self-doubt debating whether or not they made the right career choice. The first sale, whether it is a solo transaction or partnered with a more “seasoned” associate, gives the associate a strong sense of pride and accomplishment. It’s a big deal.
Yesterday, a new associate at our MB store made her first sale and I went to congratulate her, to simply acknowledge the achievement. The smile that lit up her face is now added to the hundreds of others I have witnessed over the years.
As for the customer in this process, they are forever remembered as the first sale for this associate. This customer will get special attention any time they are at the dealership from this associate, because they were the first transaction of many. And in our sales process, even though a customer primarily deals with just one person from start to finish, there are numerous people behind the scenes all supporting the sales associate before (training), during (sales managers/business managers), and after (Service, Parts, Detail, Concierge) the transaction.
Tired of the same old back and forth, grind it out, car buying process? Try something fresh, unique, and special…..the Walser Up Front Price way of doing business…
When I am out and about in Wichita or at a Chamber of Commerce event, I am often asked about business and how the “new” company is doing. I usually reply that after nearly 16 months, the Walser Auto Campus and I am doing great. That usually elicits a chuckle or at the very least a smirk. And then I get to tell them about all the exciting enhancements to our business and our new website – WalserAutoCampus.com.
As you can see in the photo above, this is not your ordinary “dealer” website. From the aerial slow pan across the front of the Greenwich side of the campus (don’t worry – BMW/MINI/Porsche/Acura coming soon!), you can see why our collection of some of the most iconic brands in the world, all on one campus, is second-to-none.
From new Porsches and Jaguars, to great Used Cars (priced from $7998 and up!), we have what you are looking for! In addition, with our sister stores in the great state of Minnesota, we just might be able to get that new vehicle from one of our sister brands down here to you as well. And, best of all, at a negotiation-free, Walser Upfront Price, too!
See you soon….
