Talking

Hi, im new to the forums but not to the BMW scene. I have been a proud BMW owner for about 3.5 years when i first bought my 2001 330i Fully Loaded Beemer.

I have decided that i need to upgrade to the M3. When i went to the dealership to go look at the M3's to get a feel how much damage its going to do to my finacial department i found this realy sweet BRASS colored BLACK Int 2003 M3.

Specs:

BMW M3 2003 Model
Brand New - 489 KMs
SMG
19" Rims
Rear Sun Shield

The MSRP was $86,177 CDN - The listed price of the car is now 72,900.

Now i really liked the BRASS paint job, its totaly unique and eye catching. I started to haggle and decided to do the whole trade in thing. After minutes of talking to the sales rep, i realized he wasnt taking me seriously, or he though i was too wound up... so he would not budge on the trade in price.

He offered to take my 2001 330i for 28,000 CDN = 32,760 CDN /w taxes... I was like... WTF are you smoking. The car is all stock except the 5800 dollar AC Schitzer body kit. I pretty much left the dealership angry and decided to call back and get some more info on the car.

I came back the next day after speaking to another sales rep and we haggled for about 2 hours on the price of the car and whats going on with the sale.

End results are roughtly this - Brand New M3 2003 Version (490 kms)
71,500 - with the trade-in worth 40,000 for the 330i.

If this deal comes through, is it good ? Should i push for more or am i getting a good deal ?

71,500 CDN = 54,580 USD (Rate 1.31%)
Plus instead of the $32,760 CDN for the car, im getting $40,000 CDN.

Would love to get some feedback before i go in there on Monday and sign the papers. Thanks for the help, i cant wait to get into the M club

To tell you the truth... no matter how much money you end up dropping for an M.. when your flying down a twisty road faster than you thought you could drive... and feeling power... all make up for money.

I will never care how much of my income goes towards my M or any other M.. or any other BMW for that matter. Its truely a love.

I do understand that money is in some instances a very important thing. If you dont feel in your heart that this deal is worth it.. dont do it. I would jump on it if I was you. But I'm not.

Good luck either way.

Hey man.. A clue for you... half the reason M3 owners are so cocky... and proud... and just pure car loving people... is because they.."THEMSELVES" spent so much damn money to drive one of the worlds greatest machines... I dont give a rats ass if your parents bought you the car.... you didnt earn it. Period no more comment.
