Peper, the 2008 328i costed that much new! Therefore, they should have a selling price to be a couple of thousand$ less! I do not know exactly what the price was, but I have leased 2008 328i with metallic paint and BMW Assist, MSRP of $34,400, which cap value, i.e., selling price, came to be $32,400. Note that this was in May 2005, while the prices were still w/o much discounts in Miami, which happened to be a hot BMW market. Therefore, I believe that you should easily be able to get it for about $2,000 less. However, if I would be you, I would rather opt for a 2009, because both the front and tail are much more different than 2008, and therefore it will be very visible that you are driving an old Bimmer...
#9380 of 12246 window tint

Picking up a new 335 this weekend, Any thoughts on window tint. I live in AZ, so the heat blocking effect seems beneficial. They are offering me 2 options. One is a ceramic tint $369.00. They also talk about a new “platinum-nano-cool” that keeps even more heat out and is darker $769.00. I don't know anythng about this new tint. Any information or thoughts? Thanks!
#9381 of 12246 Was this a good deal?
Dec 03, 2008 (7:40 am)
I just bought an 09 328i, my first bimmer---and what a beauty!!! I had always driven the Japanese stuff, but after I test drove this car I immediately knew I just HAD to have it. I love the car but didn't care much for the arrogant and snooty sales people (went to all the dealerships in my local area and they were all the same). I'm in south Florida BTW.
Anyway, I got:
Edmunds TMV priced the car at 43,320 (but thats because they are adding on the cost of the leather, even though it is already included in the premium package)
The BMW website has the MSRP with at 41,665.
I'm not much of a negotiator when it comes to these things but I did some research here on Edmunds and a couple other sites before I went to buy the car, and every source I looked into came up to approximately the same price as Edmunds. Had to really haggle with the dealer to get him to come down to $39,650---which he very begrudgingly agreed to. None of the other dealers I talked to offered a significantly different price, but I'm wondering if I could have done better. I did get the 0.9% financing deal but I still feel as though I overpaid.
Thanks for your comments.

Yes too high in this market. Take another $4K off of that!
#9383 of 12246 2009 328/335i
Dec 03, 2008 (1:42 pm)
My lease on my 2006 325i is set to end in January and I am looking to either lease or buy another 3 series. I have priced out both a 328i and 335i sedan. Here are the details:
MSRP - $44345
Invoice - $40820
MSRP - $49045
Invoice - $45155
Before starting my negotiations, I would like to get a general idea of what would be considered a great deal. Should I be aiming to pay below invoice? If not, how much above invoice would be considered a great deal.
I paid ~$400 over invoice on my last BMW but I am wondering if I can get a better deal this time.
I am located in the DC metro area.

Hi, do any of you have the base roof bars installed on you e90 or e92? I cant tell which one is supposed to go in the back of front? One bar has the silver sticking out on the side about an inch, and the other one is almost flush. Im assuming the shorter one goes in the front? Dont know for sure though...any help would be greatly appreciated i might need to use them this weekend

I am in the process of purchasing a new 2009 328 convertible. I have received various quotes and the best is $700 over invoice. I feel I can get $500 over invoice. The car I want is already in the dealer's lot and you may have to pay a bit more for special ordering. I am also in the San Francisco Bay Area. Keep us posted on your progress.

Forget about the other reply.
It sounds like a nice car but I think 54K is too much for the used car. It's loaded wth options which ususally doesn't retain it's value as much. I think a fairer price would be 45K

Fullofivy - I got the deal at the Atlantic City dealership, but the one in Freehold agreed to the same price. BTW, since its a 2009 328xi with the features included, I think it was $450 below invoice.
