  • I ordered a build for my 428x lease in September. The lease was based on invoice plus $750.00. I think you can do better today on cars on the lot and some have reported buying close to invoice.

    Not a good deal obviously...if you walk into a dealer, I wouldn't expect to get a good deal...The best way is to build your car online, get the invoice price, add $500 and send out email offers...that way you can avoid all the dealer add on bs. Also, you did not include pertinent info about the deal, money factor, acquisition fee, doc fee, etc. I would expect, that the dealer jacked up the base money factor rate, that alone could increase your monthly payments by $50.

    I just ordered a 428i convertible yesterday (7% below MSRP). They have a production schedule so mine is slated to begin May 1, 2014 with delivery mid-June. I wanted to get the xDrive but those don't go into production until July w/delivery in September according to my dealer.

    If you're looking to get one, your best bet is to go to bmwusa.com, email like 10 dealers even if they're kind of far from you and see what their best offer is. That's what I did. And that's what I did w/my last 2 car purchases. I like the "email negotiating" because you can be a little more direct/blunt via email than you would be in person. It also saves time when you actually go into the dealer b/c everything is already worked out so you just have to sign the papers. I was in/out of the dealer within 30 minutes…and that included having them appraise my 2011 328i convertible.

    When you send out the emails, wait to get replies from all of them. The first dealer replied that due to the high demand, they can only do MSRP. The next offered $2,000 off. The third said $4,100 off (7%). I had several others reply that they would match that offer if anything fell through. I was expecting to get low-balled on my trade in but they were straight up and offered me blue book. I am usually against trading in cars b/c you can get more on the street but didn't feel like dealing with trying to find a buyer for $24k. I was in/out of the dealer within 30 minutes. The entire experience was great -- Elmhurst BMW (Illinois).

    Hi! I haven't bought a car in 8 years, so this is internet negotiating all new to me! @cubbies1980‌ did you just email dealers asking for their best offer? And regarding ordering, I am surprised that dealers are willing to discount the price for custom orders? In my correspondence, they naturally encourage you to visit them to see what they have in stock (assuming that is the best chance for the biggest discount). And in the price negotiation, do you just ask for reduction in Total MSRP, or on specific items (e.g. Premium package) closer to Invoice?

    Unfortunately, I am undecided between the 3 series vs. 4 series ... but I am confused by all these cars categorized as "SULEV" - are they inferior in power due to emissions?! (I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this question)

    Thank you for your help!

    I would like to lease a 2014 435i convertible asap but was hoping to find out what prices/rates these are going for this month. I am new to leasing so I am hoping to find out what is considered a good deal and forward it to the surrounding dealers to match....Any advice on what I should ask for? Thanks in advance!

    I'm not in the market for a 4-series, but you can use the pricing tools at the top of the screen to figure out what they are selling for in your neck of the woods.

    Then hop on over to the "4-series Lease Questions" discussions and we can set you up with the relevant info (MF and residual).

    We took delivery of our 435i in Munich on 3/10/14, drove the car for a week in Gernany, Switzerland, Austria, & France, then dropped it off in Paris on 3/17/14 for its shipping back to the US. Purchasing through the European Delivery program took 7% off the base price of the car. Then you can still negotiate with the dealer, who too another $2K off the total price.

    This was a great experience and I highly recommend it.

    US delivery should be around 5/3 at the dealer we purchased from. The car reached Brunswick, GA by ship on 4/21 and is being prepped.

    The wait I'd killing me.

    I am planning to purchase a BMW 428i xDrive through ED program. Here is the offer I got:

    Glacier Silver Metallic Coral Red Black Leather M Sport Premium Package Tech Package Driver Assistance Package Driver Assistance Plus Package Cold Weather Package H/K surround sound system Power sunshade

    Total MSRP is $57000 and the ED selling price is $48700, is that a good deal? Thanks.

    I negotiated a selling price on a 428 conv. build in March, for delivery most likely this month. The $1,000 incentive being offered in May, can I re-negotiate the selling price or am I out of luck? Thanks.

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 28,043

    You might be able to... but, you'll also have to take the lease program offered in May, if you get an incentive from May..

    msrp:$64,475 Paid $61,475 + 4% tax in VA, 199 dealer processing fee (MD), + fees

    so basically 2k off and 1k incentive....

    OTD: $63,289.

    seems like I did pretty bad comparing numbers to what others are paying? I had to order this, so it started production last week..

    was this a bad deal?
