    I drove a new one home last Friday with:
    - only 50 miles
    - Premium Package ZPP
    - Xenon Adaptive Headlights
    - Sirius Satellite Radio (1 yr)
    - iPod and USB Adapter
    The drive-out price was $42,500, which includs everything.

    I am sure that Edmunds forums helped me to get fair prices when I purchased a Volvo S80 in 2000 and a Lexus RX330 in 2003. Same for the 2008 BMW 535i I purchased last fall. And, I posted about my BMW buying experience then, including the price I paid. If someone found that helpful, good. If not, also good. I appreciate all the helpful info disclosed here and encourage others to make use of the forum as they see fit.
  • Since the deal was done already, what good does it do to hear that I paid too much. I love the car, felt it was a fair price and am totally excited, so why put any negatives into the equation. Had I found the forum earlier, I am sure I could have paid less-but hey I am just pumped to get this car and can't go back to worry about the price. Got $7500 for a 2000 Lexus ES300 trade in, which seemed more than fair. We bought very quickly-this dealer had 2 others that we had looked at and were sold before we could even blink an eye, so did not want to miss out on this beauty.

    I have received an invitation to attend the BMW Ultimate Driving Event in my area. Not sure if I will attend, but am glad that you can report such fun. The event invitation claims that there is a "gift" that can be redeemed toward the purchase of a new BMW. I am curious -- do you have any info on what that part of the promo entails?
  • rrusso1rrusso1 Posts: 23
    You will receive an email with a code# that you can redeem (must be in possession of car by 9/30) for a $1000 discount. You apply this discount after you make your deal. Unfortunately the $1000 cannot be used on the new 2011 5 series but it can be used on any other 2011 model and also the 2010 X3, 535i Gran Turismo, 550i Gran Turismo, 550i X drive Gran Turismo and all 6 series models.

    2010 is an outdated style.

    Is it good at any BMW dealer ?
  • lakilaki Posts: 2
    The offer on 2010 535xi with premium package and navi is $47451 and $369 doc fee and tax. How much lower could the dealer go.
  • rrusso1rrusso1 Posts: 23
    It's good at any BMW dealer.

    forget about the older model at any discount they try to get you, once you testdrive it, you will understand the difference. my dealer at chicago land said even new 528i will be shipped around sept, 2010, they all been reserved already, i can't get my hands on one most likely by Jan of 2011.

    Looking to buy a 09' 535 wagon with 15k in miles along with following equipment: premium, sport, nav, cold weather, park distance, comfort access, 18 wheels ($600 new), manual shades, ipod, etc. Car stickered @ $68k. Car was bought @ auction by non BMW dealership in April 10'. Story is car was driven by a bmw staff person. Any suggestions for what price to shoot for? I have no idea what the auction sell price was, which makes it difficult to negotiate...

    Well, bought it from BMW concord, CA. It is reasonably below msrp and it is very good. My wife who drives it mostly is thrilled at the way this handles over her honda accord which she promptly sold off. Overall, I'm pleased with the deal and the way the dealership has treated us. They have been calling every week inquiring about the car etc and are super responsive via email. This the first BMW we've owned and might not be the last.

  • coolmarucoolmaru Posts: 3
    wildcat, that is a great deal. All those would have set me back by another 2k I think. Taxes etc here in CA are huge. I paid exactly what you paid for your new car with taxes etc. My drive out was about 42.3k. So yes you got a good deal.

    What was the color.? My wife liked the black sapphire metallic and we were lucky to get one quickly.

    Have been looking at CPOs for a while and I know every dealership is different...However, how much room for negotiation do you guys see in an 08 certified 528/535, assuming the dealership has not lowered its inital price yet?

    Dealers make a lot of money selling CPO BMWs. I'd go into the dealer, drive the car you want, then make an OUT THE DOOR offer including sales tax & DMW fees. Don't be afraid to walk out. Don't let them bump you up. They have to sell the car just as badly as you want to buy it. CPO E60 5 series are a dime a dozen.

    Make sure you get a copy of the vehicle's service records.

    Aim for $5000 off asking price + tax + DMV fees.

    Good luck & let us know what happens. You're going to LOVE your BMW.
