It just doesn't make sense to expect a dealership to take a loss on an ordered vehicle. They have no reason to do that.

You got invoice price (7% of MSRP). What was the breakdown of your rebates?

Going in for a lease sometime this month. Car I am looking to build is a 340i xdrive, leather, premium, track pack, heated steering wheel, sunshades, carplay, msport splitter, and side skirt decals.

With dest charge I am looking at $61k. Is it reasonable to expected a negotiated 15% off the msrp including the current rebates? I know wont be easy. I see a lot of you getting deals in that range however, dealers up here do not seem to be high volume like some of the others across the country. I could be wrong though. I am also willing to travel for a great deal within reason. I picked up my last car down in Maryland. Road trips are great.

Of course, I do not think I will have a problem getting the month's lowest MF, I have always received lowest rate available in any credit situation including mortgage.

I am happy to take any advice on the negotiation process. It seems like some of you are in sales yourselves so, what would be your ideal informed customer? I bet we can be a pain at times. I have read that not mentioning a lease is the way to go and throw that in at the end. I plan on only paying first month and fees up front.

the easiest way to get a fair deal:
select all the options you want, tell the dealer you want an invoice minus incentives deal and you want them to print out the vehicle inquiry report (VIA) with wholesale. (msrp and invoice price)
you then take the wholesale number from your build and subtract all available incentives.. add back lease initiation fee and dealer fees (doc fee, registration in MA), that is your buy price
complete lease calculator with residual and base money factor to get your payment
no actual "negotiation" required.
it is possible in very limited circumstances to get a below invoice deal before incentives depending on if the vehicle has been sitting a long time, high value customer, location of dealer, etc

Thank you. Will do. A few more:

Is there still a closed door costco rebate?

If I order in November, and a better deal comes in December, do I have the ability to select the deal that suits me best. I take it the car will take about 3 months to arrive.

If a dealer will rarely take a loss by selling below invoice, isn't telling AT invoice gaining them no profit as well? What is their incentive to sell at invoice? Genuinely curious, just sounds like the above is too good to be true.

On another note, saw this ad pop up today: http://bmwdrivetoendhunger.eventsbmw.com/

Looks like $1K new vehicle credit that can be combined with other current offers, and is valid till end of the year. Although I saw this on my local dealer's website and it told me valid until February 2019, so may vary by location.

so this is where the car world gets complicated... invoice is not the actual amount the dealer pays for the car, there are other back end profit and such. think about invoice as the generally accepted minimum price a dealer will sell for. Anything above that is extra profit for them, anything below dips into the minimum profit

as far as the drive to end hunger coupon you would apply that on top of any other incentives... looks like not valid on a previous order but not sure how they would enforce that

GOLFFRR would you happen to know if the drive for hunger credit can be added to a existing order if planning on using the programming at delivery vs at order

It looks like this does not apply to orders. Only cars in stock so, I would think it would not apply to existing orders.

Do you have to test drive for hunger credit at the same dealer that you end up getting a car from?

M3

Hi guys, I'm looking to get into an M3 new order. Configured it comes out to $79,095 MSRP.

Looking to do 36 months, zero down, 12k miles/year.

I'm talking to a few different dealers and the best offer I've gotten so far was $992/month. Seems pretty shitty to me? Shouldn't I be able to get closer to $875 or $850 with the current incentives going on?

Also for context, I have a 328i I'm leasing right now-- lease is up in April.

Appreciate any advice/feedback you guys might have. Thank you!

Lease hacker says the general rule of thumb is the msrp should be divided by 10 for the monthly price. Some say that includes tax, some say it doesnít. Thatís $800 a month plus tax.

Its 1% of MSRP. And getting those deals on bmw now are hard with high MF, bad residuals and no msd. It doesnt include tax on the 1% rule. Cant compare a deal with no sales tax vs a deal with 10% sales tax.

If the car is 80k MSRP you should aim for 800 a month before tax with whatever your putting down up front.

Example: 750 (before tax) a month with 2600 upfront -750 x 35 months = 26250 + 2600 upfront ( fees first month DMV etc..) =28850
28850/36=801. That would be a 1% deal. Hard to get on 3/4 series let alone M cars.
