#10040 of 12242 Help Please -- Is the Price I'm going to pay a pretty good deal
Jul 23, 2009 (5:38 pm)
Please help i need to decide by tomorrow morning. Here are the details for the car:
2006 330i (bear with me i don't know what the default options were)
--Adaptive & Self leveling headlights
--rain sensing wipers
--Dynamic Cruise Control
--Ambient light package
--18 in rims with new summer tires
--automatic tranny ( i prefer manual but oh well)
I got them down to 29,300. I couldn't get the to budge any more.
They are coming in a little low on my trade in i think though. I have a 2008 EX-L 4cyl accord with 17,000 miles on it and they are only giving me $18,500 on it. BMW has pretty good interest rate now though on their pre-own cars (3.9% for 60 months).
This is a certified BMW pre-owned so i get a warranty until 2012 or 100,000 miles.
Its red in color.
I have dealt with this dealership in the past and its a pretty top notch dealership (they sell porsche, bmw, mercedes, ect..) so they deal with pretty top client-ail. I used to have a 2001 325i and they would wash/wax your car every time you came into service and have never dealt with a service department nearly as good as this one.
They said as a courtousy because i bought the car done when i will have any service done on the car just call and they would arrange to me to have a new BMW until the service is done (even if its for something as minor as an oil change). They have free car wash every saturday morning where they will wash/vacuum your car and feed you with panera while you wait.
They said i will most likely need snow rims/tires for the winter (summer tires not so good in the snow) and i can just order junk tires/rims from tire rack through them and they will take care of storage of the tires for me. I just can come in and get them put on every winter.
This is just a side question? How reliable generally are the newer BMWs? I did have some issues with my 2001 325i when i had it. I remember the oil light would not go out and they ended up having to call BMW of america to get if figured out. Don't remember what it was other than some sensor deep in the engine that they had to get replaced but they did get it fixed. I also was spray washing the car one time and the hood emblem just blew off. This was right before i got rid of the car.
your help would GREATLY be appreciated

Seif, my deal on the Accord is irrelevant. What is relevant is Honda's clear and straightforward text, figures and presentation; the customer is buying the company and it's 'best practices' as much as the car.
#10042 of 12242 price of 2007 Certified 335i

Hi, guys: I am looking at 2007 Certified 335i in Chicago area.
It has 16,363 miles, Grey leather and Blue color, auto transmission. I think it has premium package.
The dealer listed it for $29.99K.
Is this a good price? I sounds pretty attractive to me. How do you experts think so?
Thanks lot for your suggestion!

kad153 - seems like a great price. Do you mind me asking what dealer in NJ you went to? No money down and < $600 month? Seems very good

test drove the car today. It is good. However, the dealer is mean, they insist their offer price $29.9K;and only want to give my trade in (2005 Prius 50K) $8500. Also they added $350 document fee!
Kind of crazy. They don't sound like to want to sell the car. Maybe they keep the car priced like that to attract people into their dealership.
The car has premium and cold package

#10046 of 12242 hard top convertible for full time car?
Jul 26, 2009 (5:03 pm)
im considering getting a 328 hard top convertible for a "full time" car. i live on long island. two younger kids. wifey has an SUV. wondering if anyone has experience having a hard top convertible such as the 328 which is a RWD car in such circumstances, considering the area's weather conditions and such family structure. clearly there are other, more practical cars to purchase, but probably none more fun for me when i go to/from work, short drives to friends' houses, and trips to such places like atlantic city with the wife. the ultimate question here is, will i be sorry if i buy it, or is it practical enough ???
#10047 of 12242 Re: Is this a good deal on new 328ix?
Jul 26, 2009 (5:07 pm)
Pricing a new car equiped with:
Sport, cold weather pkg, Xenon HL,Sport wheel/Tire upgrade, Sport steering wheel with paddle shifters,Auto trans,Comfort access, Logic 7 sound system, Nav, Pwr seats w/memory.
MSRP is $47,420, Invoice $43,745 dealer quoted $42,500 for this car and he has to order it. 1.9% for 60months.
I am going back to see what they will give for my trade but this sounds like a good deal.
What do advise on this price?

For that price....I'd get less options and the 335xi.

I agree with kad153. I test drove the 335xi this past weekend and it is quick!
I got a quote for the car at $43,395. The MSRP is $47,200 and invoice is $43,995.
Is that a good deal? Seems like others have gotten better deals than this.
