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

    Just my $0.02, but I have to say that anyone who pays extra for an auto-slushbox should learn to drive stick and save themselves $1,300 right from the get-go. THAT's a good deal, and built-in to boot.

    From what I can gather when searching for a 2010 335i about 6 weeks ago, there were about 130 of them in New England, and not a single 6-sp manual among them!

    That's primarily why I ordered my 2011 335i xDrive built with THREE pedals. As to where in New Jersey my car is, who knows! Per my sales guy yesterday Friday 7th:

    "Our inventory report shows your car as not released to the truckers yet. But Monday it may show as being released today and actually show up. On the other hand it may still be sitting there.Or on a truck in transit. Why can't this just be simple and straight forward. Monday will tell more, I hope !!" He's actually a really nice guy, but the rules prevent me from saying his initials are JM at a BMW dealership in Sudbury, MA.

    By the way, if you call the BMW "hotline", they have no clue where the $50,000 vehicle you ordered is located beyond "it may be in Bremerhaven, and then again maybe not". With GPS tracking so accurate these days, they really ought to be able to tell us precisely where in the world the car is currently located. I have to assume that, as a Priority 1 vehicle, it wasn't on the lowest deck of a 100,000 ton steel car carrier ship.

    My Dad just picked up a new 2010 Tahoe LTZ in February. He ordered it in December. The dealer he bought it from was able to tell us where it was up to a point. Onced it was off the train & onto a truck, there is no way of tracking the truck. He said "pretty funny how you can track the fedex guy down the street smokin a cigarette, but they have no idea how to find an almost $60K, 5000 lb truck."

    I am getting a similar deal for 39600. Did your dealer take off the spring credit too? So it was 39400 - 2500 = 36900? Wow that was an awesome deal.

    I'm a big fan of driving sports sedans with manual transmissions too. When I was looking for my 07 C350, I searched the entire country and found only 2 6-speed cars east of the Mississippi. The bad news is that you get HAMMERED at trade-in time. When I was going to trade it a few months back, I couldn't find a 335 sedan I wanted within 1,000 miles anyway. These cars are rare for a reason: most Americans can't/won't drive a 6-speed sedan.

    Anyone guess is as good as mine but...
    According to BMW CCA magazine, Roundel, the 4-door 3 series (code name F30) will come out next year. My guess would be around Sept 2011 as 2012 Model year.
    The coupe usually comes out 1 year later.
    The article in Roundel says it's moved a year ahead due to poor sales. Not surprising the way Audi A4/S4/A5/S5 are selling

    If you lease it's not bad to get it now, you are not going to see this kind of discount on BMW when F30 is out.

    so what is the quote you have received?
  • xeyexeye Posts: 168
    As an FYI, my new 2011 335i xDrive arrived at the Prep Center in New Jersey about 2 weeks ago and should be in my driveway in Boston by now. I found out today that they are having what has been identified by my dealership as a "seat campaign" and they're waiting for parts, presumably from Germany on one of the next slow boats. The Prep Center is saying that the car should shipped by the end of the month. Apparently, a "campaign" isn't quite a recall, but nonetheless it's still a "paign". The GM at the dealership is saying that he has 8 other cars in the same situation. Now my new ride is at least 3 weeks away. Needless to say, I am really disappointed that a brand new car can't even be built without a screw-up. Did they only realize they had a major problem while the car was on the boat or did they build it knowing that they had a problem and shipped it anyway?

    This does not bode well for my future as a BMW consumer or for their reliability. If you've orrdered a car and can't get any news, my suggestion is to become a major "paign" in your sales person's backside.

    I am considering purchasing a 2007 328i wagon - CPO, with three years. The interest rate is excellent - 2.9% for 60 months. The car is offered at $27,800, which is about KBB. I plan to offer $2000 lower but the wagons are pretty limited supply. Anybody have recent experience in similar year/model? I am in SoCal.

    Did you get charged for Maco/Training fee? What was the Doc fee?
  • aniluckyanilucky Posts: 13
    No Maco/Training fee.
    Overall it was like $2500 - Taxes + 6 - Tire fee + $399 - Title & regn = Close to 3K I think.

    I've been quoted $31,500 for a 2010 328i sedan, silver, with the basic value package, with moonroof, black leather interior, cd/ipod, etc. I'm not even sure if this is a good deal. Bluebook/edmunds say invoice is around 31,500. I am concerned about high payments and the dealership gave me a financing option (2.9% $454.79/60months, $10,000 down) and then a bmw select option (2.9% $271.00/60 months witha leftover $11,840 final payment). Is this balloon deal a bad idea? I really dont want high payments foR NOW, just graduating law school looking for a job. PLEASE HELP the deal if until the end of the week!! Any advise would be GREAT!! :)

    My car is on its last legs, fortunately my dad is willing to help me for awhile!
  • acehawkacehawk Posts: 22
    Looks like on the expensive side. The car is 1 yrs old even though it's new. It's most likely have been sitting at the dealer lot for awhile. There's also a 2500 rebate for all 2010 model. I would wait.
  • puffin1puffin1 Posts: 276
    I have to agree with you. It seems the car makers are trying to replace a manual tranny with a DSG and claim it gets better milage or the same.
    Bought my car to downshift, brake and to throw it gear when I need the torque. :sick:

    didn't you think to test drive a new S4 an let yourself find a whole new refference for excellence? The bmw xi is way down the rungs of the ladder vs the awd S4 3.0t. Make sure you don't drive one now that it is too late.

    Hi, I recently go to some dealers trying to get a 2010 bmw 328i 4dr, premium pack,value pack, navigation,+floor mats

    the MSRP is $40250 something, and I offer them $36500 OTD price.
    The best offer they give me is $38000 otd price, is this a good price since the new 2011 is out already?

    Is there any new promotion coming out next week?
  • srohatgisrohatgi Posts: 3
