#10448 of 12228 Just took delivery of '10 335i xDrive Coupe

The best suprise of the entire sales process was how pleasant it was working with the dealer. I had expected the ususal battle but starting discussions a couple months before lease expiration helped ease the transition. Dealer was Ray Catena Westchester BMW in White Plains, NY. Everybody was helpful from the salesman to the sales manager to the general manager at any given time during the process.
The deal was part of the Nov/Dec incentive. BMW must have had a very strong finish to 2009 if the level of activity was similar at other dealerships.
#10449 of 12228 Special Order...Near invoice???
Jan 06, 2010 (6:07 pm)
Hello...I really like the 3 series and am looking at getting one. I want one of the following:
328i Wagon w/steptronic, M-package and Metallic paint
335i w/steptronic, M-package and Metallic paint
It seems that either car with those options will have to be ordered. Do I still have room to negotiate when ordering in a car? Are these cars really going around invoice?

YOU should have the car inspected by an independent mechanic who specializes in BMWs. Does the vehicle have a service history? Has BMWs Inspection II (Major service) been completed?
#10453 of 12228 Shady Dealership
Jan 07, 2010 (10:35 am)
I signed a contract with a so.cal dealer last week under a 60 mo finance term. and they called over the weekend that i do not qualify for the finance "due to my status in U.S". they were trying to talk me into another finance term much shorter than the original one but i refused and told them I do not want the car.
i found out yesterday that they cashed my down payment AFTER i said i do not want the deal. I called them and was told it would take them "2 weeks to process a return for me". Is that even legal?
This dealership is very shady, when i was there to sign the contract, they gave me a contract for lease instead of purchase. afterwards i found out the numbers are diff. from what the salesperson originally promised me. the salesperson is very unprofessional and was yelling at me for not taking their car despite their hard work. i would not recommend it to anyone. stay away from this dealership in glendale!!!!!

You can deal on a special order. $500 over invoice is a very good deal. $1500 over invoice is about the most to pay, as most dealers would take that deal. European delivery can often save you more.
