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



  • jdomasijdomasi Posts: 16
    I am in NJ thinking about leasing a 320i.

    If I get them down to a selling price I want (assume 500 over invoice), the standard buy rate and residual amounts, what else is negotiable? Can I say I don’t want to pay destination or doc fees? One or the other? I understand the taxes are not negotiable as well. Title fee? Assignment fee?

    You can try and negotiate anything you want, all the dealer can say is NO. Now before going in get all the facts, like money factor for this month and residual for the car you want. Once you have these numbers it will make it much easier to make sure the dealer wont try and take you for a ride.

    Anyone know which BMW locations are having their $1000 drive event near NJ? all the ones around me are in July.

    Destination cant be negotiated and doc fees everyone has so you're going to pay it somewhere, might be able to find a dealer that charges alittle bit less than another. Title and tag fees, like taxes, cant be negotiated either as they are set from the state, not the dealer

    Curious what I should offer for this car considering the 2014 was just announced. Anyone have an idea of how low they would be willing to go? Or what I could offer them without offending them? Thanks! A/1698317123?cs:o=16866390

    2013 328XI only with premium package.

    Can someone tell me if this is a fair deal?
    No money down, just the first payment plus fees.
    Lease is $499 for 12K/mi over 36 months.

    If it's not a fair deal, can someone tell me what money factor and residual value would be a good deal.

    I am not looking for shopping around. If it's a fair deal. I'll pull the trigger.

    BMW 328i Sedan

    MSRP 49800
    Base Cap Cost 46814
    Costs Added to Lease 0
    Cap Cost Reductions 750 (BMW Loyalty)
    Adjusted Cap Cost 46,064.00
    Residual % 0.65
    Residual Value 32,370.00
    Money Factor 0.00127
    APR % 3.05

    On Edmunds the Invoice Price is $45,765 and the dealer quoted me $46,814. He said the difference in price is because of the Costco price ($500) and Regional Adjustment ($549).
    Is this a good deal? Is the Regional Adjustment value too high?

    what's the msrp and negotiated price for the car? you should be looking at negotiating a price anywhere over $800 above invoice price. the money factor and residuals are not negotiable and are set by bmw financial.

    That's what I just ordered, and it is in the "build" line for delivery in about six weeks, early August 2013. There wasn't another with my specs in the pipeline.

    My salesman matched Edmunds' TMV. Later I saw's Fair Market Value price a couple of thou less!

    I'm pretty excited. Never owned a BMW car, but have had several of their bikes, currently an '05 R1200ST.

    I ordered Alpine White, beige vinyl, wood trim, Sport Option (M steering wheel, M suspension, Sport seats, black headliner, staggered 18-inch wheels (8.0, 8.5) and performance tires (front 225/45, rear 255/40).

    It has "tiptronic" but not as paddles on steering wheel.

    Also has engine stop-start which I hope I can switch off when I wish. They'll substitute black carpets for the vulnerable beige carpets.

    I know its barely July, but does anyone happen to know the money factor and residual for this month on a 2013 335i Sedan. I am also interested in the numbers on a 2014 version of the car, if available. Lastly, is BMW offering any incentives?? I always remember them doing some kind of promotion in Summer, like $2000 towards options on your car or something like that.

    Hi Carman and everyone,

    I am thinking to finance a 2013 328i coupe with the following package.

    Navigation System
    Convenience Package
    Premium Package

    The MSRP is $46575 and the dealer is offering $44000.
    What is the price I should ask for this car since the 4 series is coming soon.

    Thank you.
  • zoombie99zoombie99 North JerseyPosts: 260
    I would wait for the 4 series. The should be giving away the 328 coupes by now.

    I am looking to buy a BMW 328 xDrive (automatic) 4-dr sedan in Maryland. Any recommendations on the dealers in the vicinity of Rockville/Bethesda? Also, what is a good price for the 2013 model in the area? Lastly, how does this model compare with Acura TL?

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

  • sbedi88sbedi88 Posts: 10
    Having both a '10 TL and '13 3er maybe I could shed some light. You can't compare the 2. The TL is more comparable to the 5 series in drive and size. I'm happier with my 3er because, although the TL comes with better packages and is more fully loaded for a better price, you definitely get what you pay for with the 3er in terms of luxury quality and electronics. People may disagree with me but AcuraLink has been the same for the last 6 years. Same interface, same navigation, same everything. Idrive is nice because it is more integrated into the actually vehicle. For example, with idrive I can control whether I want my DRLs on using idrive, I can see what torque/HP I am pushing, etc. The Acura does come at a better price and the packages don't kill you, unlike the bmw, and if $$ is a factor I'd take that into consideration. Drive wise I think the TL is like the 5 series. The 3er has a raw, sportier drive and even though its on a 4 banger, it is faster and lighter than the TL (V6 around 300 HP).

    Getting a good price depends on what options you're looking to get. People on this forum will tell you anywhere from 500-800 above the invoice.

    Good deal or not?

  • ppatppat Posts: 4
    Appreciate your insightful feedback. I am a hard core Acura fan, especially the TL, having had an excellent, problem-free experience with two separate TLs over the last 10 years. Size and add-on features at a good price are very important but at the same time, I am looking to try something different this time around. Will consider purchasing an xDrive with Premium package, Nav and heated seats if the drive quality is significantly better than the TL and the dealer is willing to give me a good price. Looking forward to the test drive in a couple of days. :-)

    Any suggestions? Anyone? Thanks,

  • jzeejzee Posts: 3
    Base, red color, new car. TN dealer offered 36k otd, and i am going to get the price near 34.5k otd. Thanks.

    I'll be going to the Drive Event last week of July. I know theres a 1000$ incentive and $1000 on build out on a 3 series. Does this $2000 go in to the calculation after the negotiated price ?

    MSRP is $42375
    Negotiated = $39500

    So after all the calculation suppose I have to pay $3500 down. Would this $2000 add to the down making my signing around $1500 or Can i have this added up front and bring the negotiated down from $39500 to $37500 ?

  • jasonmdbmwjasonmdbmw Posts: 117
    What is the other $1000 incentive?
  • beamer55beamer55 Posts: 12
