Hi - I'm in UK and about to take delivery next week of a new 325i SE saloon (silver grey/black leather) due to market conditions in September I reckon I got a good discount for a vehicle that was free stock in the UK pipeline. The car is now being preped, I went to take pics of it yesterday, but I've got a "problem" with the chrome. I told the dealer I wanted it dechromed (shadowline) and they said they would do it at a 'good' price (but I stupidly didn't insist on being told it before placing the order - ok I wont do that next time!). Now they've told me it will be 1300 for parts and labour I reckon they might be trying to claw back the discount I got them to give me (several % more than they wanted and almost BeepBeep levels).

Question: is there anyone in UK who could give me a clue whether this is a good keen price or more like list. The sales exec says she swung a 100 reduction to get to the 1300. (There's also a prob with the titanium II trim inside which they will try to swop out to matt graphite at no charge - thanks guys.)

Any help appreciated..
Dave

Now resolved - with much phoning to several dealers. The 1300 is the rate for shadowline, ie gloss black trim on doors and above doors, PLUS adding something around the mirrors plus polishing the bodywork somehow. What I wanted, and have now been quoted 400 (50% parts 50% labo(u)r) for is just changing the chrome to matt black trim. That sounds more like it!
