finally got the dealer agree to this *lowest* price that they can offer.
And I have to finish the documents by the end of this month since
the $1200 manuafacturer's support will expire then?
Need your opinion: is this good deal or not? anybody think I can get
a even better one? thanks a lot
I am currenlty searching for a 2004 330i black/black with performance package, leather, cold weather, xenon, and moonroof. I have found one for sure and I think a few more. Currently there is a $2400 marketing incentive and 1.9% financing. A dealer came back to me at invoice after subtracting the incentive. I said that wasn't good enough, I offerred him $500 over invoice and then subtract the $2400 incentive. He said "it's not a chevy" and said the best he could do is take off another $400. The invoice was $40480.
In February 2003 I purchased a 2003 325i for invoice, no incentives. Deals can be had and I am looking to see what I can get a 330i for. If anyone has some prices they have paid or seen for a 330i, please post.
I just bought a 2004 325xi 5sp manual w/premium and cold weather packages, hk stereo, xenon lights and paid $500 below invoice.
Any dealer with an ounce of intelligence knows they make more money in the service of the vehicle not in the initial sale. They can't make any money in service if you don't buy the car. There are deals to be found out there you just need to find the right dealer.
I agree with the last post. It helps if you have a couple of dealers to go to. But for now until the end of August, BMW offers dealers 2400 on a 330 and 1200 on the 325. It looks like people are getting deals at about 700 over dealer cost. I offered a dealer 1K over cost for 330, he said - "when could you take delivery?", and then said I had to pay for floor mats, but at that point, I didn't bicker. That was still about more than 1500 less that what edmunds was showing as the fair price for the 330i.
I didn't drive the Acura, but compared to a loaded G35 and Audi A4, you can't beat a 3 series. I don't think you'd regret it.
Just bought a 325i yesterday w/ premium package and heated seats for about $500 below invoice and free floor mats. Overall a very good dealer experience. I think end of the month and end of MY is a good time to deal. I don't think I could have done better than that, this is my first bimmer and I really didn't know what to expect from the stealership. It probably depends alot on the salesperson you end up working with.
