330d M Sport Discount

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and currently speccing a 330d M Sport as follows and was wondering what typical discount people have been able to achieve here. I seem to be struggling to get beyond 7% which appears to be typical deal margin.

330d M Sport, Mineral Grey
19" Alloys
M Adaptive Suspension
Variable Sports Steering
Media Pro Pack
Visibility Pack
Front Seat heating
Lumbar Support
Ext folding mirrors

I had part-electric seats on my current E90 320d Edition M Sport and annoyed that its not an available option on the F30 - hate BMW standard manual adjustment. Full electric expensive at 900+ and unlike 5 series doesn't include electric steering adjustment so dont know why its so expensive.

I'm pretty fussy on suspension setup and found the standard M Sport suspension, whilst a significant improvement in ride quality from E90 (which was a bit unforgiving) a bit soft and vertical control wasnt as great as it could be. I had a run in a launch 330d M Sport touring which had the adaptive setup and tho it was short the body control was a lot more impressive.

Thanks,

David

Hi David

Welcome, and great choice and spec

Discount wise I would imagine you are buying at the wrong time of year to get the best discounts, especially as you are looking 13 plate delivery? Many got around the 10%, so you can try that, but that was coming up to year end. Good luck

NISFAN is probably right, I got a pre-registered 320i xdrive in November around 25% discount on what they were looking for!

I was hurried along in a deal just the other side of the year to make the most of the deals and got 12% without too much ado

Go to your dealer armed with Broadspeed.com... not checked it recently, but they will certainly treat that as worst case.

Not got an 330d but I used Broadspeed's offer to play off Sytner Affinity, who beat them by offering me Service Inclusive. I then used that offer on another dealer who gave me about 14% off (cash deal) & free carrier transport. I also did the P/X over the phone so I didn't have to go to the dealership.

Forget about Chandlers Brighton....they are as tight *%$* and would not budge from 5%.

Broadspeed are currently offering 8.4% off list for a 330d M Sport (just over 3K). But there is nothing off options - they are all list price. If you can get 12% I'd snatch their hand off.

That is normal on broadspeed... the trick is to order the car, then add the options the week after, insisting they carry the discount.

Thanks for the info folks. I can currently match Broadspeed on just over 8% and due to issues with my last car getting another 1k off so ends up just over 10% but need to push a bit more as finance rate has gone from 3.9% to 4.9%. I had been wrongly told that the 3.9% was being continued.

Problem is that I already paid an extra 1100 for timing to be re-done on my 320d about 6 months out of warranty but it was a known issue. BMW paid for the parts and half the labour but I felt they shoud have paid entirely so basically Im just about getting that back.I'll try moaning a bit more and see what I can do.

I'm annoyed I didn't move before xmas now but current deal is up in April and had thought spec change might have improved more than just DAB that I wouldnt have specced anyway.

Just noticed this place:

http://www.buyacar.co.uk/bmw_3_serie...to_48402.jhtml

The main thing I noticed is they appear to be discounting the options too - the only problem is their APR is higher than BMW. Click on the Continue button to see the options.
Although I read somewhere that they do mention BMW lower rates of APR. I think you would have to ring them and dig deeper.......

Seems a good lease deal on a 330d M Sport with Business Media thrown in:

Personal lease: Dep 2196 then 366 a month for 36 months. It appears they have reduced this as it was around 380 the last time I looked the other week.
