Advice - M sport 31 Tourer

Hi All,

I've had several BMW's over the years from new, due to owning two large dogs I purchased a Skoda Superb 4x4 Elegance Estate 170bhp Diesel, having owned it for just after a year I'm well and truly bored and looking at coming back to BMW.

Plus everyone else I see driving one is 50 years old or a taxi driver.

I've been following the forum since seeing the F31 M sport in Estoril blue. Very tempted however the spec I want comes out around 37K at list.

Can anyone advise realistically the level of discount (is 6 - 10 % Realistic) and APR (I saw 12% on the site which is a joke), I'm looking to put down a 5k deposit.

I receive a good car allowance but I don't want to throw my savings in as a deposit.

Well on the F30 other lines (non M-Sport) BMW was running a 5.9% APR deal.

As far as I'm aware, they weren't willing to this on the M-Sport (although I think Rjberry managed to get it) and I think you're looking at closer to 8 or 9%APR as I understand it.

As for discounts, I think you might struggle to get 10% at this stage (pre M-sport launch). However, am sure you'd definitely get that if you were willing to wait. The early adopters always pay the most!

I think the best thing you can do is sit down with a dealer and discuss your options.

Too many variables to list really - do you want PCP or HP?

Since you're looking to finance anyway, it would be more effective to look at how much you'll pay for the term - I wouldn't worry about the "raw" discount they give you - since it might be skewed by what you pay on interest.
