I'm going to contact them and ask them for the college grad incentive which I'm qualified for. If they will honor it and give me back that 1000, I will proceed the order. What do you guys think about this idea? Or should I ask around for the nearby dealerships? The salesperson was really friendly tho. I would feel really bad if I end up having to cancel the order.

Thanks again everyone!! You guys are great.
A fair deal is $500 over invoice. This means you'll have to pay the 180$ training and $400 MACO "fees" in addition though. (You'd have to negotiate really hard to not pay them).

Do the math for the financing bit. I got 1.59% for 60 mo financing through BofA and still got the $1,500 USAA rebate. This is a better deal than getting the $1,000 Holiday cash and $1,000 USAA rebate at a rate of 3.29%. This will be done when you actually purchase the car, don't get any of the "extras" when you are with the financing guy cuz it's all a rip off. And remember, the deposit is refundable always.

I'm not sure whether the college grad incentive is stackable. PM me if u got any questions, I did some hard nosed negotiating and contacted about 15 BMW dealerships in doing research.
