Hello all, I'm a newbie looking to buy my first BMW. Great site by the way! I'm in the market for a 325xi with most of the bells and whistles; premium package, heated seats, moonroof, manual tranny, etc.

Everywhere I've researched I keep coming up around $36,000. I've read here and at other sites I should shoot for between $200 and $500 over dealer invoice which sould put me around $33K. Am I being realistic in my expectations of paying $33K instead of $36K or more?

Has anyone here recently purchased a loaded 2004 325xi and if so what did you pay?

Thanks

2001BMW325xi is an unknown quantity at this point
I just bought a 2001 325xi for 22K with ALLLLL the bells and whistles except the kitchen sink .............a brand new with all the options I have at the BMW dealership near me the vehicle would be sold for no less than 35, 500 after much haggling......the market price is around 37, 850. So I would imagine 33K for a xi with all options is a tad bit optimistic........but hey if yu get a deal like that take it in a jiffy........lemm know if you have any questions reagrding the car as such. Ciao buddy and welcome to the ultimate experience!

Dealers are gettign 1200 back from BMW on the 325 through 8/31. I'd offer invoice price and let them know they can keep their 1200 as a nice profit.

You should know that info going in. I think the Edmunds site has links to it.

Worth a shot, and be prepared to shop another dealer.

Thanks gang I appreciate the assistance. I bought a 325xi w/titanium silver metalic paint, manual transmission, 2.5L 6 cyl., premium package (incl. moonroof, auto-dimming mirror, dark wood trim, power seats, on-board computer, BMW assist), leather upholstery, xenon headlights, fold down rear seats, heated front seats, and h-k sound system for $500 below invoice.

I'll pick up the car in a few days after it's delivered (at no extra charge) from another dealer in New England. The wife and I are very excited to own our first BMW and look forward to many miles of driving pleasure.
