    You'll have to read a little closer.. No one is getting an '05 325xi for $6K-$7.5K off...

    The dealer cash incentive on the 325xi is $1500... I'm not sure what you mean by "out of the door"..

    A good price would be around $4000 under MSRP plus taxes..

    Is the $4200 rebate on 2006 330i or the 330ci?
  • peakpropeakpro Posts: 65
    no....

    on the 2005 modeils...and i don't think on the Ci but i may be wrong on this
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,545
    All dealer incentives (not rebates) are on the '05 models..

    330i = $4200
    325i = $2500
    330xi = $4000
    325xi = $1500
    Z4 2.5 = $2500
    Z4 3.0 = $4500

    No dealer cash on coupes or convertibles..

    No dealer cash on '06 models..

    But how often can you get invoice pricing on a BM? I wish I could get invoice minus dealer incentive. I went to a dealership and they were offering me a 325xi (2005) for $3000 off MSRP. They were also willing to include a alarm system for half off. The alarm installation was $750, which I think is steep for an alarm system. You can get one for cheaper; however it wouldn't be an official BM product. :)

    I guess that the pricing of the car is invoice, since the invoice is about $3000 off MSRP. At least the cash rebate for a 325xi is least of the incentive. :)

    BTW is the extended service (2 more year or 50,000 additional miles) worth it for $1200?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,545
    Generally, you can't get a BMW for invoice... Although, once they start putting incentives on them, you should be able to get close to Invoice minus Incentive..

    Somewhere between that and $1000 higher, you should be able to make a deal..

    You can buy the extended service at any time before the original maintenance term ends.... I would wait..

    Why do you need an alarm? The BMW already has an ignition immobilizer.. The only way to steal the car is to tow it.. I certainly wouldn't pay $750 for that...

    That's a pretty decent deal!
  • I've searched the web for delivery time estimates. The order went in on April 28th and the car has been in the awaiting shipment status since May 14th. I found a response in a forum that estimated 12 days of travel time for the ship to the east coast. I opted out on the performance delivery, so I assume that it will arrive in Jersey. If I'm lucky, my car will be shipped sometime during the next few days and would mean that I'd be able to pick it up from the dealer somewhere between June 10 and June 17. Does this sound like a valid time estimate?

    It's too late to want to know if it's a good deal or not since you already bought it. Just enjoy it!

    HI:

    Glanced over many, many post from previous months. What would be a reasonable price be for a totally loaded 05 330CIC. The dealer's window sticker is $52,695 (includes dest charge); I know this has to come down quite a bit with the new 06 due out soon, but how much. It is located in No. FL.

    Thanks.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,545
    The '06 convertible will be identical to the '05... There will be no new model for at least a year, and probably not until Fall of '06, as an '07 model..

    Spring is not the cheapest time to buy a convertible... $2000 off MSRP is probably the average deal.. If you get $3K off, consider yourself lucky...

    I'm going in to the dealer tomorrow to see a 2006 325i that I put a deposit on.

    Premium package
    Navigation
    Heated Seats
    Leather
    Automatic

    Price we're working from is 38,145 (msrp). The salesman told me he's sure he can do "something" but there are no dealer incentives. If I'm going to end up paying 38k is it worth it to lease instead of buy? Also I'm a Virginia resident and the dealership is in Maryland. Could that be part of it?
  • odessitodessit Posts: 140
    Hey, mslevy16, I’d say get about 1000 off msrp. Here is my previous post for comparison (you probably saw it already, sorry for repost):
    --------
    2006 325i bought in upstate NY. Options are:
    Automatic transmission
    Power seats (not sports seats, just regular seats)
    Heated sets

    It makes sense to get some deals from few others dealerships before coming to the one that you really want to buy a car from. Just walk in with a stone face, show salesperson printout of what you want and ask what he would sell it for.

    A have a favor to ask. When you look at the car, can you check if backsides of the front seats have storage net? Please let me know. Reason I am asking is that 325i must have them as standard equipment. Guess what – it is missing on mine 325i :)

    I also checked on both the 325 & 330xi series but not sure if these are good prices.
    330XI: Edmunds TMV = $38,966
    MSRP = $43,095
    Dealership Quoted = $37,647
    Black Sapphire Metallic
    Black Leather
    Cold weather and Premium Package
    Automatic transmission.

    325XI: Edmunds TMV = $36,061
    MSRP = $38,245
    Dealership Quoted: $35,185
    Titanium silver Metallic
    Black leather
    Cold Weather and Premium Package
    automatic transmission.

    What do you think?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,545
    There are BMW to dealer cash incentives on both of these models...

    The 330xi has a $4000 incentive.

    The 325xi has a $1500 incentive.

    This makes your effective discount $1248 on the 330xi and $1560 on the 325xi...

    Those aren't very aggressive offers.. You should be looking for at least $1000 less on the 325xi and $1500 or more less on the 330xi..

    Hi All,

    Could anyone share a good deal on the Dallas Metroplex Area?.. I'm looking for a 330i with SP and PP.

    The best so far is 500 off the MSRP :cry:

    Thanks,
    Berny
  • berny1berny1 Posts: 9
    Opps.. I forgot to mention that is for the new 2006 330i.

    Thanks,
    Berny

    DFW dealers are tight with the selling price. I shopped for 3 months to get the price I wanted. These are new models, can you wait 2-3 months? The prices should get better by then.
  • berny1berny1 Posts: 9
    Thanks!.. could you give me more details?.. what dealer was that?.. what kind of deal?..

    Regards,
  • amt7565amt7565 Posts: 165
    Well, I got the 2005 model, not the 2006. There were already good rebates on the 2005 models. Send me an email and I can give you some contact information.
  • gwenjeangwenjean Posts: 4
    Thanks, I was planning on going in to test drive the 330xi, this way I will now know to see how much more they are willing to go down to, to try and sell the car. That is if I like it.
    Thanks again!!

    I just started looking to buy my first BMW. So glad that I find out from you gys about the $4200 rebate! Anyway, I went to a local dealer here in Northern Virginia and was offered a 2005 silver metallic 330i - Premium pkg, Auto, MSRP $40,345- for $33,845. Is this a good deal? Sales guy said he can also get another silver metallic with Sport pkg, Premium pkg, Auto, Xenon for $35,745 + delivery charge of $700 because the car is at another dealer. Anyone else find a decent deal in the northern Virginia area? Thanks.
