No freebies, alas. Didn't even look into the very slick accessory store. But I also declined every one of the add-ons they peddled at the last minute.

I think if you do your best and make the deal to the bone (very close to invoice, buy rate MF, base AQ fee) you shouldn't expect too much.

To me getting a big freebie means there was fat in your deal. Maybe not but that's one impression (ie nothing is free...)

If you're buying you're 3rd M6 with Individual, ok, sure... but for a 3-series in demand, I'm feeling like my zip-nada free confirms that I made a good deal on the car. A hat and coffee thermos type cup wouldn't hurt tho.

I like the way you think! My wife was upset that my sis-in-law got a gift basket and she didn't but I told her all that meant was I negotiated a better deal. Needless to say, she was not impressed and still wanted the gift basket!

I was this >< close to ordering the ActiveHybrid3. The thought of that amazing hybrid technology combined with the 6 cylinder petrol had me really interested. It appealed to my geeky side and the petrolhead in me. Unfortunately it would have been more or less the standard car and no toys. In the end the 330d M Sport won out as that's where the offers were.

I love all the tech too, so the AH3 is a dream come true (only US F30 that got new Nav). If they offered a 330d here, I would have given that serious consideration as well.

Agreed x1000. When I get a brand new car at 15% off MSRP, I know there can't be too much margin left in there. The CA still has to get paid, after all.

It's a hybrid so not too bad. Harry can either move under his own power or I push him.

Sales guy gave me a set of keychains with his name and cell number on it.

BMW sent me a huge thick cardboard cutout of a BMW grill and a BMW card in a really nice cardboard case. I have no idea what either are/were for.
