5 percent is a good start. Note that the Xdrives are 2013s

I got 5% off the car since it was MY2013, but I also got a few discounts on the protection plan and the tinted windows.

Max discount I heard of is 8%.

The discounts have been pretty aggressive for a new model. Almost embarrased what I had to sell them for.

Just stick to your guns and negotiate like its going out of style lol.

Buy from stock and you'll get a better deal...trust me!

got around 8% off on 2013 328xi classic but that probably because loyalty was another 1k credit...

Question about the discounts given. I know it's usually 4.7- 5% as a minimum amount. I've gotten this by just asking.

But do they apply this discount after taking your trade-in for consideration or before considering your trade-in?

For trade in, you must do your homework accordingly as dealers have a fairly big trade in value range. Once you establish your car's worth, either by Cdn black book reference or other sources, you should visit a bunch of dealers to see who will give you the highest trade in value, then you know your trade in is not being low balled.

As for the new car, this transaction can be viewed as independant to your trade in. If you insist of asking about 7% discount, then you should stick with that target. Do watch out for those bogus dealer's fees & charges when negotiating.

Ideally, you would deal with dealer who can meet your trade in value + your desired discount on the new car.

Thanks.

The problem is - I've gone to two dealers who say they use an online auction system for my trade-in so they don't know what the car will go for until bidding is done.

Well, that's not 100% true. Typically, the dealers will call in their local wholesalers & auction dealers (probably 2 for quick reference) and the dealer will be told the current sale of the car that matches to your car's options, years, condition & mileage.

The trick of the trade is the your dealer may ask you what trade in value do you have in mind, if you say a higher #, then the dealer may suggest you are asking way too much; if you say a lower #, then the dealer may say sure, I can do that as if they are doing you a big favor. That's why you need to do your homework. I find the Cdn Black Book reference # for trade in value is a pretty fair indication.

Just based on my recent car purchase experience, I found Mercedes Benz dealers offered a very fair assessment/trade in value appraisal as they looked at local wholesale market, as well as national wholesale market to ensure my car's trade in value was justified. If you have the time, may I have suggest you to visit your local MB dealer and pretend you are interested in their car, say "C" class and request an appraisal of your car. btw, one of the online used car wholesale sites used by MB is adesa.ca. I was given a print out of the car sthat were sold within 30 days that matches to my car's model, year, options & mileage. MB did not hide those numbers from me at all.

At the end, I had my car appraised by MB, Porsche and 5 bmw dealers in the GTA and I was amazed of the trade in value range of close to $10,000. btw, the car in question that I traded in was a 2011 F10 5 series.
