#3318 of 4112 Finally Took Delivery
Jun 13, 2009 (3:29 am)
Picked up my CPO 2007 530i on Thursday at the dealer. The car is impeccable and I'm ecstatic with it. When I was doing all the paperwork I was signing the finance papers (I only financed about 25% of it 3.9% from BMW) the guy tried to upsell me on those options for a higher monthly payment, and I turned them all down FLAT. He looked disappointed and said, may I ask why, and I ignored him. Gimmick.
I can't believe how this car handles. Smooth and powerful. I'm thinking why would they need an even bigger engine on the 535 model now. With what I have, it feels like taking off in a 747 when I ease onto the highway!!
Have a great weekend,

I bought '09 535i with the 5000$ cash rebate. I paid 51500$ for 535i sapphire black with premum pkg, cold weather, park distance, confort access and navigation. Was oroginally priced at 59775 and I bought it for 51500 after 5000 cash rebate. This sounds like a good deal to me, what do you think.

Not really for or against the sports package in the BMW. I just personally didn't particularly want the low profile tires and find the ride a little harsh. Not all feel that way.
No, the Lexus didn't have a sport package. As I mentioned too cushy and the non sport 528xi is just the right balance for me.

The e60 528xi has more than 215 hp; it's 230 hp. Now that is no where near the TT 300HP of the 535, but I have no problem doing 80+ quicky and can pass people pretty quickly on the highway, as I did tonight, on the highway. It is a whiplash inducing rocketship take off like the 335 or 535? No, but it s pretty peppy when needed.
Actually, I'm even more pleased knowing that that HPFP issues are not going to happen to the 528.
But again, it is a matter of taste. The e39's power plant for both 525 and 530 were worefully inadequate and I previously had a 2003 530. Tought time on inclines.....not fast at all off the block. Seems like they have done alot with the 528 with same amount of HP as the previus 530.

Congradulations on your new car.
That sounds like a good deal. Can you let me know what's your negotiation strategy and what's the invoice on your car? i got a quote from a local dealer on a new 535 i for $100 over invoice - $5000 over the weekend. I don't know if I should continue to negotiate the price lower when I go in the dealership or should I just accept the price as is and not letting the guy feel I am low balling him.

100$ over invoice is a great deal. The invoice of my car was 55400$. If you are getting the same car for 100$ over invoice you can potentially get it for 1000$ less than me.
Go get it! It cant get any better than this. Let me know how it goes.

According to carsdirect.com you should be paying well below invoice now. New incentives started about a week ago...
#3326 of 4112 535 i Xdrive Demo $639/mo Lease Help/Advice
Jun 16, 2009 (9:01 am)
We are looking at the following vehicle:
2009 BMW 535 i xdrive demo with 6100 miles.
Original MSRP 59670
Cold Weather Pkg
All Wheel Drive
Steptronic Auto trans
ipod & USB adaptor
Sattelite radio w/ 1 yr mbrship
destination charge ($825)
Offering for $51995 minus 2500 cash = $49,495
Money factor .00175
36 mo. lease
$725 Acquistion fee
$201.46 Document fee
$650 Security Deposit
6% sales tax
Dealer says lease payment comes out to $639 per. mo (includes acquision fee) tax extra (150 due as a total amount at lease signing), but I'm not sure if this is accurate. I used a lease calculation and came up with $584 (which includes tax and acquision fee built in) but maybe my calculation doesn't count because I used a calculator for leases that have to be new cars? http://www.edmunds.com/advice/leasing/articles/48365/article.html
Not sure, since this vehicle has miles on it.
How does this look?
And how do I know that the mileage hasn't been manipulated?

The dealer has to lower the residual to account for the miles on a demo..
Last info I had:
1st 500 miles are free... after that, $0.30/mi. (used to be $0.15, until this year)..
6100 - 500 = 5600 miles X $.030 = $1680.00
Lower the residual by that amount.. (change the residual % to 47.2%, and it will approximate it), and see how that changes your calculation.. I think it will put it pretty close.
