Ahh, based on your original post I was under the impression you were getting a below invoice price BEFORE the USAA credit. You got a good deal, but as you said it is an achievable deal. It's the folks who claim to be getting a TRUE invoice deal that has me itching to know their secrets.
As an aside, it's probably appropriate for us to properly define our terms, to ensure we are comparing apples-to-apples.
To all folks thinking of posting their deal information
Please include your price relative to invoice WITHOUT
any special incentives or credits. The dealers don't care what special incentives for which you qualify, those are coming out of BMW's pocket, not theirs. The true comparable negotiated price consists of: invoice + $X + dealer fees, where the $X+dealer fees is the portion under negotiation. It should exclude
special BMW incentives, sales tax, and state-mandated registration/license fees.
