How Did Your Price Negotiations Go?

Hi,

I'm in the midst of price haggling for a 2011 335i convertible.

When buying your BMW(s), do you happen to recall what percentage discount you were able to negotiate off the MSRP? One salesman we took a test drive with was initially adamant that it's inconceivable for his dealership to give more than a 4% discount. After I walked away, he phoned and said he was willing to go to 6%.

Would you have any other advice or tips for price negotiations?

Thanks a bunch,

Calvin

Visit Edmunds.com and look for the invoice price (not MSRP) for the car configured teh way you are want it. Then I would add a couple thousand dollars to that (or around 5%) -- the dealership has to make some money, you know

Thanks.

I'd like to negotiate by invoice but I'm not sure what the best way to find that is. I live in Canada and so can't use US figures.
