#11496 of 11920 CPO 2008 335i Sedan - good deal?
Nov 20, 2011 (10:25 pm)
Sport Package with Paddle Shifters
Split Rear Seats
Heated Front Seats
Listed for $30,000 even. The same car (minus split rear seats but with the comfort access system) is going for similar prices at http://www.bmwusa.com CPO inventory search. Been listed for sale for a few weeks.
Carfax says it is a lease return and was purchased in Newport Beach, CA. A few months before the current dealer put it up for sale it was serviced by Valencia BMW (computer reprogrammed, fuel injector replaced, recommended maintenance performed, oil & filter changed) ... not sure if that was the lease end inspection or not.
About a year ago my friend purchased the same car (minus the split seats but with the comfort access system) but year 2007, for $28k at Berkeley BMW. I offered $27k and the salesman said they wouldn't budge, said they were only making $500 profit, but that he'd look into what could be done and would call me tomorrow. I won't buy it for $30k as there are a few other CPO's without the split & heated seats going for $28k (that have black or grey interior, which I prefer). Think I should stick to my $27k?
#11497 of 11920 First BMW, first lease
Nov 22, 2011 (11:28 am)
White 2011 328xiT
6400 miles (loaner fleet for 10 months)
Premium, cold weather, value pkgs.
Sirius w/ 1 year sub
black roof rails
Before any negotiating, the dealer offered a selling price of $41,500 (KBB has the suggested retail from a dealer at $43,285 with these options and miles). I asked for him to put in the security deposits that I have read about on this forum which would total $3,500. At 10k miles per year and an adjusted residual amount of $28,730, my monthly payment would be $483.62 + tax.
-Does anyone have experience leasing a loaner? Is it just a bad idea to start with?
-Does this being a loaner have any impact on whether or not I should go with the security deposits?
-How does this deal sound and where should I look to negotiate if much room at all?

I'm not really familiar with the market for that car, but leasing a service loaner can be a very good deal, if the price is low enough...
Forget what the retail number from KBB is... Find out the original MSRP, and see what sort of discount you are receiving, relative to a brand-new car..
Service loaner has no impact on MSDs... No reason not to use that program.
#11499 of 11920 Deal on the table, how is it?
Nov 25, 2011 (10:59 am)
Here's the particulars:
Premium, value pkgs
Heated steering wheel and seats
Black roof rail
Negotiated sales price: $43,704
Doc fee: $399 (big I know)
7 security deposits
Pmt: $558 (tax included)
Ideally I wanted to get my payment down around $530, how does this deal sound to you all and can I feasibly get that payment down out of the money over invoice and or doc fee.

#11505 of 11920 New 2011 328xi
Dec 01, 2011 (10:06 pm)
Just got my first new 328xi.
Jet black on black dakota leather
Final 36890.00 ($4000 discount: invoice was $37,756.00)
Added PM extended warranty to 6/75K with refund if I don't use.
Maintenance free 6/100k for 2099.00
PenFed is offering 48-72 month 2.49% auto loan; When I brought this to the dealer, they found better rate 2.39% for 60 month with Suntrust.
It's great time to buy 2011 328xi (even though new one's out in a few months, but prob that's is the reason why price is so low.
