I was talking to my dealer who told me the 2005 325i would be going for $1,000 over invoice. I was curious to see what another dealer would say and. when I told him what the first dealer told me ($1,000 over tissue), he said, "Take it! That's a great price."
I asked him if he could beat it and he said he couldn't.
The plot thickens.

Quick question for you: What does it mean when you guys say "over invoice"?
(sorry if it's a silly question, but french is my first language, so I'm missing the subtility of this expression)

Hi,

I bought a 323i in 1999 which was made for me, for $300 over cost. I have no idea what the market is like now but what you can try to find out is to send a fax or an email to any dealer in your area you would consider buying a car from (I bought in San Diego and there are about 5) and tell them EXACTLY the car you want to buy NOW and what is their best price. Then wait for responses and then you can bargain from this. I was surprised how well this worked.

Good Luck!

To harpax: Invoice is what the dealer pays for the car. Of course the dealer might get additional money back from the factory from each car; this is known as "holdback" and can be 2%-3% of the MSRP (manufacturers suggested retail price). So, if the "invoice price of a 325i is $29,500, according to what the dealer told me, $30,500, $1,000 over invoice, would be a good price.
BTW, I wish *I* spoke two languages like you do )
