My dad went into Rallye BMW here in NY and got a quote for me, but it's not with all the options I want.

Brand New Order for Germany Production:
White on Red Coupe
SMG
Prem. Pkg.
Heated Seats
Harmon Kardon
Xenon
Gas Guzzler
$695 Destination Charge

Final Price: $56.670
36 Month Lease with 10,000 Miles Per Year
$0 Down = $935.21
$2666.74 Down = $846.58

I know its pricey, do you think I could bargain it down, cause it's being ordered, not from a showroom, and I want to add navigation and put 5000 down and maybe make the lease 39 months instead of 36.

39 month... I don't think they'd give it you. Either 36 or 48.

It is not likely you'll get any discount because it's being ordered. You'd be more likely to get a discount if there is a model sat unsold in a showroom and the dealer is keen to get rid of it.

As far as THAT lease deal goes, it is pretty good. They obviously give you a resale value after 3 years of $34k which is over 60% (the reality is just over 50%)

Go and visit Mr Bank-manager and see what rates he'd give you on a loan rather than leasing on finance.

<span style='color:blue'>&quot;So my BM makes me a flash bastard? Then I guess you're just keeping it real from the seat of your nova?&quot;</span>

<span style='color:gray'>&quot;...and the home of the brave..... is bravey 130bhp from a 7 litre engine? 100bhp/litre or don't bother building it!&quot;</span>

<span style='color:red'>&quot;Aaahh the UK; where every road is jammed, under construction, poorly maintained and unfairly policed, at least we don't get over-taxed for it........ HA HA HA!&quot;</span>

Buying is out of the question, this is my first car, I'm a high school student. They have a lot of white on black coupes in the showroom, but none of them have navigation and smg combo, let alone navigation. Any other ideas??? Would it be possible for the dealer to change the interior color, cause I am obsessed with getting red.

My friend, if you had a chance to get an E46 M3 in high school, don't even begin to try and pursuade me that you wouldn't take it

If you take a loan out on the car for 2 or 3 years then you will be essentially, leasing it from yourself.

After paying off the loan for a couple of years you can then sell the car and pay off the balance of the car.

Man, you should just be happy getting a brand new M3. Are you making the lease payments or is your daddy? I think he should be the one asking if a quote is good or not because the payments are coming out of his pocket, ultimately. Sounds like to me you're just showing off without a real legitimate concern outside of "not getting all the options YOU want."

Showing off, you seem to have been a member here for a short time, so you do not know the history behind this story. I don't post things bashing you, instead I say congrats on your M3, instead, I have to hear some jelous bullshit that I don't deserve a nice car cause i'm a high school student. If you want to know why I am getting this car, go ask PowerM, cause he's apparently one of the few people who have supported and helped me make choices with getting my car since I first posted in the forums.

The kid has a point, gentlemen. I would be all over it and you would too.

'Rider,

Can the dealer not locate an in-stock specimen with your specs anywhere - or at least close to it?

I can't say that I agree with giving such a powerful car to a highschool kid, but I am not your father. Just be damn careful and get yourself to a driving school if there is any way you can (and I don't mean driver's ed.).

Be safe, and congratulations.

This qualifies as acceptable post. He states his OPINION IN AN ORDERLY MANNER and and tops it all off with a nice little congratulations.

Many people agree with you, that a car this powerful is too dangerous in the hands of a teenager, and I agree with you it is. When I first get the car, I will be tempted to floor it, but I know about the break-in-period, which is a good thing, cause I will know that I must drive it with ease at first. As for the dealer, he's currently searching for a White on Red M3, but I doubt he'll find it. He said he has a few White on Blacks, but none of them have SMG AND Navigation, which I must have. By the way, is the Harmon Kardon Upgrade really all that good and would you keep the spoiler on a White Coupe????

Believe me, I could have really gotten off on a good rant here but it is nothing you haven't heard before and will surely hear again. What I say will not change your mind and it would serve no purpose other than to piss you off. You are going to do what you are going to do. You sound like a bright kid, so please don't end up as a greasy spot on the road somewhere.

As for the HK upgrade - no, it is not worth it for anyone who appreciates quality audio. I ordered it in my wife's 330i and found it to be only marginally better than the stock setup. You would be much better off going with the standard factory setup and upgrading with aftermarket gear if you want quality audio. The HK option is a nightmare to deal with if you decide to go aftermarket later.

EDIT: I like the spoiler. It is understated and well done, IMO. I'd hit it.
