#11287 of 11917 Just leased 328i Xdrive Sedan
Feb 02, 2011 (12:09 pm)
2011 BMW 328xi Sedan
MSRP = $37,075
(Jet Black, includes Value package - Leather/ipod adapter/17"alloy wheels, and moonroof)
Adj Cap Cost = $34,620 (negotiated price=invoice cost)
Total Down = $3860
(Includes 1st month's payment, bank acq fee, reg/doc fees, and $2000 down payment)
Monthly = $374 base plus $23 tax = $397/month
MF=.00105, Residual 57%
I was hoping to get the car for $300 to $500 under invoice but the supply of manual transmission cars was extremely low and none of the dealers I spoke to would go any lower than invoice. In fact, most of the quotes I got were $500 above invoice. As part of the deal, I convinced the dealer to through in the rubber floor mats. I think its insane that BMW doesn't include floor mats and charge $170 extra for them.
The car was purchased from a dealer north of Boston MA in Peabody. Found them very reasonable to work with.

#11289 of 11917 Looking to lease 335d
Feb 10, 2011 (1:18 pm)
I am looking at leasing my first BMW, a 335d.
Can anyone provide me with the money factor and residual values for the following scenarios
3 year, 10k miles/yr
3 year, 12k miles/yr
3 year, 15k miles/yr
Also, I am curious to what others have been able to negotiate for the adjusted cap cost in New England.
#11290 of 11917 Invoice plus $1250-3500 ecocredit
Feb 10, 2011 (3:59 pm)
I paid 1250 over invoice for my special order d.
The ecocredit comes off that. So you should be at least $2000, perhaps $3000 if you really drove a hard bargain under invoice if you get a good deal.
It's a fantastic car.
#11292 of 11917 Pre-owned 2008 335cic, good price?
Feb 14, 2011 (2:19 am)
Getting a 2008 335i convertible for 35800, has 30K miles, loaded with almost all the options, new MSRP was 58K (Prem., Sport, Nav etc.). It is not CPO but has almost 1.5yrs of original warranty and maintenance left on the car (4yr/50K miles).
Is this a good price?

- check the tmv on edmunds
- check the clearbook.com value (although i'm not sure yet how accurate it is)
- go to bimmerfest or similar forum website and do a search and/or ask if anyone can give you manheim auction results for that model. figure a CPO warranty is WORTH about 3k. costs them less i believe.
imho i would look into a lease of a new one. first, those cars have had a lot of trouble and i can almost guarantee it won't be pretty when it gets off warranty. also REALLY look at your cost of depreciation + repairs + maintenance on buying a used bmw and compare it to the real yearly cost of a lease. bmw's leases are nicely subsidized, keep you covered under warranty, protects you from the serious depreciation that happens if you get in an accident; every time i do the math, buying these vehicles used makes no sense.
i can help you run those numbers if you care to.

I am considering buying a new BMW coupe (328i), but just read that the new style bmw will be on sale in 2012-what to do? Should I consider an Audi or another brand? because my number one goal was not to deal with design change for at least 4 years. ahsan
#11295 of 11917 2008 BMW 335i Sedan with 40,000 miles
Feb 15, 2011 (7:58 pm)
Bought a CPO 2008 BMW 335i sedan, 6 speed automatic with 40,000 miles for $29,000 plus TTL. OTD $32,200.
Has sport package, premium package, and many other options. Is this a good deal?

Thanks for the reply. Understand your point about leasing the car instead. But 3 yr leases are running about 25K in all, so if I keep this car for 6 yrs, it more than pays for two leases, plus the CPO car I am now looking at will have the extended warranty till end of 2013 which should cover any major issues.
The earlier deal fell through as the dealer is not ready to sell below 36800 but I am getting another CPO 2008 car with exact same color but 46000miles and additional Satellite Radio for 36500 + TTL = 40K approx. OTD. Would you not even consider it?
