    What's the sales tax in your state? with CA sales tax 8.75% the deal looks ok for top tier credit and absolutely 0 out the door (1st pmt, acquisition fee, ttl, misc).

    If you can find another acceptable alternative at another dealership and ready to walk away from this deal, I would say it's not hard to go $10~15/mo. lower.

    Happy deal'n

    I'm in NE CT and am willing to travel to MA, RI, etc to find the best deal. Any recommendations? The 2 dealers I have been to are only willing to go 5% below MSRP and I think I can do 7%.

    I've been working off of dealer invoice from, but the dealer always has their additional advertising, etc fees they want to include.

    I went to the webpage and signed up, having lost the letter from many months before. I was able to choose the location and time. Got a confirmation email with a day or two. Driving in the event this Saturday (6/23/2012).

    love my M package. Seats are nicer and better steering wheel. Plus the 19in rims look good. My problem is that I only have had it 3 weeks and this is the third time it has been in the dealership for loud noisy engine. sounds like a diesel. BMW are trying to tell me that this is normal.

    My msrp was 52045. my purchase price was 47500 - 1000 drive team USA event..

    my otd was 48300 at the end..

    But my sales tax in VA is 3%.. compared to CA tax..
    I think you have more room to negotiate definitely.. I'd try to go below invoice..

    It is normal. Mine sounds kind of like diesel on idle. Check more on check X Bimmers Forum, but it is what it is.

    It is normal that it sounds like a diesel. Many publications have also stated the same thing about the engine sound

    For those wondering about what the BMW Drive Event consists of, I wanted to share my experience that occurred on June 23, 2012 at BMW of Peoria. We arrived at the event a little early and proceeded to the registration area. Check-in was an extremely easy, fast and painless experience. Any driver has to provide a valid drivers license. Even though we were early, the car we registered to drive was available so we started the drive almost immediately after we arrived. They provided us with directions for a course with some different roads that was fairly scenic and my wife and I drove without any BMW staff in the vehicle. The course was about 17 miles and took about 25 minutes.

    I had already driven a BMW X3, but this was a nice reminder of what the vehicle was capable of. When we returned they handed us an iPad and asked us to answer some questions. They were easy, I gave them the most positive marks on every one and that process was over in about 2 minutes. We got a gift bag with a hat and some coupons and were told that we would receive our $1,000 purchase voucher in the mail in less than a week.

    The language in the email states "Offer not valid for vehicles delivered prior to event attendance or customer orders placed prior to event attendance." I assumed this excluded cars already in the dealer inventory, but was told by the event staff and employees from that dealership that this was the case. You just can't apply the discount to a vehicle you already purchased or ordered.

    You also had the opportunity to meet an Olympic athlete in attendance, but we were in a hurry and didn't bother. I would certainly recommend the event to anyone who is considering a BMW that they intend to purchase by October 31, 2012.

    I too had my X3 M for 3 weeks and it started having to go in for loud engine and then throwing codes. They too tried to tell me that it was how come it didn't sound like this when I first got it?? Then it thew a chassis code which they pawned off on to a battery drain (it's a new battery,..really) back in. Then it threw an emissions code. Suddenly they agreed the X had a vacuum leak somewhere but it would take a 10K tool to diagnosis it. Then 2 days later suddenly it was just a computer glitch. Do I look stupid??
    I think BMW's pat answer is tell the customer that its normal and maybe they will go away. Current my X has been in the dealership more than I have had it at home and Corporate is involved. :mad:

    Does the certificate for $1000 need to be used at the dealership where the drive was made or can it be used anywhere?
  • kyfdx@Edmundskyfdx@Edmunds Posts: 25,906
    I think you can use it at any BMW dealer...

    You can use it at any dealer. I drove two hours to an event because it was on the weekend, then just used it yesterday at my local BMW dealer to order a vehicle.
