#11537 of 11958 looking to buy a 2011 328I sedan, is this a good price?
Jan 26, 2012 (8:04 pm)
i know 2012 is out next week and I was shopping a non bmw first as i want to try sth different but disappointed at driving g37J (the famous transmission lagging problem) and tsx, and feel jacked price on audi a4. MB c300 is fine but looks too much plastic.
Then brought me back to bmw and got this offer with 0.9% 60month and current $2500 bmw incentive.
2011 328i premium pkg, heated seat, the free value pkg at $34000+3% tax+500 doc fee
is this a good deal or more room to chop? or if keep price ask add things?
what will be a good price at this moment since 2012 is right at corner? thanks a lot.
plan to sell it maybe 2.5 yrs later or am i better off to lease?

With those miles, these are getting $22k-$24k at auction. Personally, even for CPO, I'd be looking to pay no more than $28k.

Hello all. I am looking to buy a 3 series and would love to get a 2011 model if I can get the right price. What discounts are being offered right now? Also , is there a way to check inventory in the local BMW dealers? I live in Detroit.

Today I test drove a 328xDrive and it had done 3800 miles. It had Premium package, Value package, Sirius for 1 year, Heated steering. The dealer offered it to me for 34900 + Tax...total 37400. Looking at the prices on this forum, 33k is the norm for this set of options. Am I missing something? The dealer was also saying that he's running out of the 2011 models very fast. Will I be too late if I am looking to buy in March?

I'm looking for the same car. Where are you located? How quickly did you get that price? the faster they gave you the price, the lower they can go.
#11544 of 11958 2011 328i purchase
Feb 03, 2012 (6:05 am)
Was in the market for a 3 series and I was told the 2012's should be hitting the dealers in March with Demos arriving in the first week of Feb. With similar equipment the 2012's would be priced $2500 more then the outgoing model Plus, I am sure the dealers are not going to budge too much off the MSRP soo...
I ended up buying a 2011 328i with premium pkg and Navigation with MSRP= $40,675 for $34,997 last day of Jan 2012. Had to pull the trigger since the color combo i was interested in was the last available within 100 mile radius Just wondering if anyone is seeing a better deal recently?

wow, u got a good deal.
i bought on jan.30th msrp close to 40k and get it $33,800+all other stuff: premium+heated seat, silver + grey. edmunds says invoice is $36,000. so the cost is 33,500 after 2500 incentive. did not get any other service or extra dime on anything.
The car price in this area is higher in general than the big cities and the quote from other vendors in the area(within 100miles there are 5 dealers total) are much worse than this one. so i jumped.
so far its ok but when i turn sharply, there are sounds a small metal/screw things on the back go left and right. need bring into the deal to check and fix that.
otherwise pretty good.
i guess since bmw is one of the hardest to negotiate so anything below invoice shld be pretty good. i asked the sales and he said when 2012 model comes in, there will be no negotiation.

I figured i could probably get another $500 off the price if i waited a little more when the 2012 cars hit the dealers, but then I would have to get the colors and the options that were left. So it was easy. This one was MSRP= 40,675 and SP= 34,997+tax+ registration+ $80(junk fee). BMW finance also has the 0.9% financing for 60months which is amazing!
