BMW 3 Series, Sedan, Wagon

Hi all! I'm looking at a 2012 BMW 328i that has been sitting at a BMW dealership since August 2012 with only 500 miles from test drives. It has never been titled or owned by anyone other than the dealership.
The MSRP back in 2012 for this with the options (premium package + technology package + enhanced bluetooth w/ BMW assist) was $43,145. Today they are tagging it for sale at $37,900 which I'm guessing is basically one year deprecation without any added miles?
If I can get it for $36,700 plus taxes, tag, dealer fees, etc out the door for around $40,275 is this a good deal?
I really don't need the technology package on this car and was thinking if I got a 2013 with the premium package + enhanced Bluetooth which has an MSRP of ~$41,500 that I could get a better deal especially with the $1000 ultimate driving event rebate this year.
Your thoughts? Thanks in advance!

Different dates for different dealerships. But, contact your nearest dealer and ask them to sign you up for the "ULTIMATE DRIVING EXPERIENCE". Once you participate in the test drive, you get a $1,000 certificate good for any BMW.

Hi all - we were in the dealership yesterday for service and we saw a "new" 2012 (yes 12) convertible in the showroom. Sticker price is $54,600. I didn't want to engage the sales person until I got some feedback from the board. What do you think is a reasonable offer? I'm thinking $45 is realistic, but any feedback if we can get down to the $40K level? Are there any other incentives going on that we can take advantage of?

Go to Kelly Blue Book and ask them, That will give you a better understanding of what the car is worth. You can start at $45K but I doubt the dealer will bite at it.
#11930 of 12247 328i sedan - manual
May 27, 2013 (8:45 am)
Here's what my dealer is offering on an ordered car:
The costco offer I was quoted is: $500 over invoice (invoice = $42,075; MSRP = $45,745). With $1000 new grad and $750 loyalty cash the total comes to: $40,825
Now, I just came across BMWUSA's lease offer for the 328i sedan: $349*/month for 36 months. $750 Loyalty Cash included in payment. 10k mi/yr. $0.20 extra/mile.
• $349 First months payment
• $2,750 Down payment
• $0 Security Deposit
• $725 Acquisition fee
• $3,824 Cash due at signing
• $350 disposition fee
THIS LEASE IS BASED ON A VEHICLE MSRP OF $40,875.00. SUBTRACTING THE $750 LOYALTY CASH (SINCE THIS IS BUILT INTO THE LEASE DEAL ABOVE) IS: $40,125 (cap cost)
I would like to get a similar lease deal on the vehicle I want to order by factoring another $700 ($40125 - 40825) to the lease equation to make up for the difference in purchase price between the BMWUSA example and my configuration.
Would this be a shrewd lease? How do I know what money factor is being used so I can make changes?

ahdanna....I agree with flightniurse. See what KBB says. See if there are any used '12 'verts in your area and check what they're asking for them.
That said, you can offer anything you want. The worst that can happen is the dealer says no.
There are a couple advertised in my area (albeit used) for $43K-$45K. Don't know the equipment levels, though.
So, you may be in the ball park.

I also agree and I have to say I was going to suggest the same thing. In fact in a quick KBB SEARCH it seemed to come back around 45 k but I don't know the options so it could be different. I did pick CPO ON KBB because its new seems like a fair comparison.

#11935 of 12247 Is this used 328i a good deal? My first car ever
May 31, 2013 (9:22 pm)
I just started my first real job and am thinking about getting myself a car. I came across this deal on internet that seems pretty good to me, though I don't really know if it really is a good deal. And one major concerns that I have is it was in an accident as shown in CARFAX.
Here is the link to that car on the internet:

If you guys think I should go ahead and get this one, could you tell me how much should I go about negotiation? I am in no rush in buying a car so I can spend a long time playing the negotiation game if that's better. Also, which direction should I negotiate? Price, finance, or something else? Thanks a lot!
I do have the cash to pay for the car in full, but I think I will prefer to finance it.
