2013 and earlier BMW 3-Series Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    Haven't inquired about pricing yet but that seems pretty good for a new model. I thought dealers usually mark $500-$1000 off the MSRP on new model year BMWs.

    I'm also in the market for a 2012 328 and one dealer here advertises about $1,750 off MSRP for the 2012 328i on their website. I'm in the bay area.

    Don't pay your taxes up front. They should be rolled into the pmt. What is the sticker price, selling price, money factor, residual value?

    BMW is really giving away remaining 2011 328xi sedans. I'm paying $572/month with taxes and 20K per year allotment.

    I don't have the exact paperwork on hand. I know I can get a great deal on the 2011,but I loved the 2012. Maybe I'm a fool,especially living in NY without all wheel drive,but hey I did it for many years before. Why put taxes in lease ?

    If you love the 2012, then go for it. Roll the taxes into the payment because if the car gets stolen or totaled at any point during the lease, good luck getting your tax money back from Mayor Bloomberg & Governor Cuomo.

    Nyccarguy could you check my deal and let me know if it's good 2000 off msrp the one I posted today thanks a bunch

    Like I told Bruce before, don't pay your taxes up front. If the car gets stolen or totaled during the lease, you are out that money. If your lease is up in June, I might hold off until Memorial Day weekend when deals on cars start to get juicy.

    Got the paperwork on the lease, 2012 328 msrp 46945,selling price 44843.90,no money down,taxes bank dock up front. 10k miles a year,money factor 0.00195 [whatever that means] $545 a month.
    The car is pretty loaded so I know the msrp is correct. Does this still sound like a fair deal ?
  • Below is what I was offered from a local dealer. Is this a good deal?

    BMW 2012 328i Base model
    Mineral Grey Metallic Color
    Dakota Leather Black
    Premium Package
    Heated Front Seats

    MSRP: $40,445
    Dealer's Pricing including all incentives: $37,665
  • brucenycbrucenyc Posts: 15
    The discount sounds great, but are your sure the msrp is correct ? Did you check the price?
  • I checked on BMW website and MSRP is correct.
  • brucenycbrucenyc Posts: 15
    Make sure your getting everything you want. The first car I ordered had no Bluetooth. Another one I priced has no satellite radio. Otherwise sounds like you fdealgreat deal
  • Thanks Bruce. I'm going in to check out the car this Saturday. Can't wait...
  • I purchased a 535i fully loaded from South Bay BMW of Torrance. Great price and i was thrilled. But, that has come to an end. Very poor customer service, no follow through on negotiated terms, 3 months later and my car still isn't one returns my calls.

    i love my car but this is a horrible dealership...being big works for them but not the customer.
