One thing I can tell you is that you shouldn't be charged the $1450 for leather because that is part of the premium package.
On a side note this car is almost identical to my build in 2011:
alpine white on coral red leather
Bt with BMW assist
Sales Price: 47,995
My MSRP was $54,600
I gave $1200 out of pocket and pay $544 a month including NJ tax.
You discount doesn't seem like a lot at least to me.

When I build your car on BMW website the price is $56,295..
BASE MSRP $46,800
Mineral White Metallic$550
Coral Red/Black Dakota Leather$0 This is part of the Premium package
Dark Burl Walnut wood trim$0
M Sport Package$2,200
• 18" Light alloy Star-spoke wheels style 193M-with performance run-flat tires$600
• M Sports leather steering wheel with paddle shifters$100
STEPTRONIC automatic transmission$0 Not too sure if you want a stick or not
Comfort Access keyless entry$500
Heated front seats$500
Now if you getting a 2013, the discount they are giving you sound good, but there are other places where the dealer can deduct money from. Is the dealer have any add-on to the car? Play hard ball, remember, YOU do not need this car, THEY must sell cars..

I ordered a 2013 330I sedan it left the plant and is ready for shipping. I ordered the Luxury Line and the leather was part of the $1,400.00 luxury option. The ZPP premium package for $2,200.00 only consisted of: 322 Comfort access, 488 lumbar suport and 655 one year of Satellite radio subscription. I am loking forward for it to leave on the boat and arrive at the port of Baltimore.

This will be a very rare BMW...
With BMW now offering five lines of 3 series, each has it's own identity. So for the extra $1400 over the base 3 series, the Luxury model comes standard with
Unique design touches include:
Chrome kidney grille bars
18'' alloy wheels, multi-spoke design
Black signature key fob with chrome accent
Exclusive leathers and interior trims
Chrome exhaust pipe trim
so the Premium package will only include the Comfort access, lumbar support and sat radio, however if you look at the premium package on line you will see that whatever color leather interior you chose will be highlights in the premium package. If you didn't choose the Luxury line, then leather wouldn't be standard, but available in the premium package...

Thanks car expert--you're right; the premium package does include the red dakota leather: I left out the premium sound package for $950 ---
The deal that you got sounds really good. I am asking for 15,000 miles and my msrp is a little bit higher but at least I can use your build as a guage: maybe I can get the MSRP lower or have them pay for the taxes --

Thanks again flightnurse: the premium package did include the red dakota leather etc....I was forgetting about the premium sound package for $950.
The car is a 2013 xi coupe. What do you mean by does the dealer have any add-on to the car? And should I ask for a bigger discount on the car?

Dealer add on's, like... Tinted windows, Pin stripping, nitrogen filled tires, paint protection, this are add-ons, cost the dealer next to nothing however big mark up and profit for he dealer.

Hi I am in the process of negotiating a price on a 2013 328 x-drive. MSRP is $44,500 for the car as configured. What % off MSRP should I expect from the dealer. In other words, if the dealer is offering me 3% off - is that good or am I leaving money on the table. Any other tips on how I should negotiate. I would like to lowest price since my configuration is very specific and it is unlikely anyone will have this on the lot - they will need to order it.
Thank you for your advice.
