#11668 of 12242 2012 328i Seden (F30) at Invoice
Jun 24, 2012 (8:50 am)
Research over a month with several dealers in Los Angeles, received a quote for F30 with Technology Package at Invoice. Plan to finance with my credit union at 1.9% for 60 months
MSRP: $38,345+ Dest + TTL
Invoice: $35,925 + Dest + TTL
Missed the Team USA event. Not able to find other BMW incentive/rebate programs. Would there be any last minute July 4 promotion?
Is this a good deal to pull the trigger?

Hi planning to get a 2012 328i in next couple of months.
1. Is it worth waiting for 2013 328i , would there be significant updates to already very exciting 2012 328i.
2. Really appreciate if someone can throw light on Munich delivery experience and details.
3. I intend to purchase on an auto loan, so wondering how does German delivery work.
4. In case I decide on local dealer delivery, can I customise and place an order on bmwusa.com and collect it from dealer, can I still expect any dealer discount .

Jul 08, 2012 (6:45 am)
I am considering purchasing a 2006 BMW 330i with Nav. It has 85K miles and seems to be in good condition. The guy is asking $13,250 as his last and final price. What do you guys think of the deal?
Run Flat Tires can cause for a bumpy ride
The 335i came out a year later (2007) and might make resale of my 330i harder in the future
2013 BMWs are out in 8 weeks and will make value of this car drop
What type of big maintenance costs should I anticipate in the near future?
All of your thoughts/comments/suggestions are much appreciated.

there are many people who will say that the 2006 330 was the last of the "good" 3 series. Don't worry about the 2013's they wont effect the price as much as you think.
Are you shopping for price or the best deal?

Run-flats: The newer replacement run-flats are reported to have a much better ride than the older OEM tires.. Plus, you can always switch to non-runflats, if they bother you..
'06 330i sedan.. The best naturally-aspirated inline six that BMW ever put into a non-M 3-series... and, it was only available on the '06 model! 255 HP... that's a plus, not a negative..
2013 model... the older the car, the less the model changeover means to value.... Cars are always depreciating.. It won't drop suddenly when the new car becomes available in September..
What could happen? It's a six year old car with 85K miles.... the same things that could happen to any car of that age.. Are you buying from an individual that has service records? How well a car is maintained is important..

Awesome blueguydotcom! Congrats! I know you've got very specific tastes when it comes to how a car drives, so you must have been impressed. Won't you join us over on ENTRY LEVEL LUXURY PERFORMANCE SEDANS & tell us what you think of the F30 328i's driving dynamics.

I am buying from an individual who claims to have serviced it at BMW during the first 50K but after that he claims his local mechanic did. I will probably spend the $150 or so to have BMW look at it and do a full inspection, but beyond that, I guess I take a chance like anyone else.
What do you guys think about the price? The trade in value of the car is around 11-12K but it seems like its a good deal. I don't want to take a loss on the car and really hunting for a bargain. The other price points out there on cars.com and autotrader seem to be fairly higher so this seems like a good deal.
My other concern is that the 335 came out in 2007 and the sport wheels on it look way better than the 2006. Matter of taste I know, but it seems like BMW carried those wheels forward for the next several years.

I'm really just looking for the best deal out there. I think this is close to the best price I've seen in a while but once the 2013s come out in 8 weeks, I might be able to get a 2007 for the same price with the same equipment. Although, I have to say this has the sport-premium package with Nav, not easy to find at this price....
Also, I'm intrigued by the 2006 330i being one of the more prized models, can you elaborate?
