I didn't have to counter. They have been calling me (almost too much) and lowered the price 3 times total. They are calling it a "rebate" I believe it's only on the X3 however. My residual was something crazy like 75-77% when I leased 2 years ago which got me a great lease deal but they are getting hit on the turn in. Also, if I return the X3 there is a special $1500 new lease incentive on any new BMW. Go figure. I'm still trying to decide between a 2009 loaded 3-series or a 2009 loaded 5-series exec demo w/ 11K miles for almost the same payment. The only downside (and i guess it's minor) is that the 2009 5-series has the old navigation system.

I just bought a CPO 2007 530i from the dealer in Greenwich, CT, paid $36,200 for the vehicle, with 24K miles on it. The car is flawless, has Premium, Cold, Prem. Sound , Sports and Nav. I ordered the extended warranty which extends the service warrany by two years. Cost: $1675. So figure that's 850 per year cost. I thought it was well worth it, just in case.
Good luck, and let me know how you make out.

I went with the 530i because it has the slightly larger engine, yet is not a gas guzzler by any stretch (like the 535i with twin turbos). Also, I love the sporty look of the 530 with Sports pkg, which is what I have. I don't like the chrome around the windows, I have the "shadow line" trim which is solid black around the windows.
My out the door was just over $38K with everything. That included 6% sales tax on the vehicle, plus $275 dealer fees, $120 registration, and also remember that included the $1,675 extended maintenance, less the $2000 trade in value. Dealer fees I was surprised only $275, I have seen them up to $499 at some dealerships, I guess that is dependent on the dealership. Considering I bought mine in Greenwich, CT, I was surprised. You won't face extraordinary costs. Be careful with the financing contract: they are trained to upsell you on the contract by adding in "insurance, security, " crap that you don't need, which just increases the monthly payment amount. I turned it all DOWN FLAT. The guy looked disappointed, because they get a commissh. You don't need any of it. I got 3.9% financing, which I thought was very good, but I only financed about one third of the car. You can pay it off anytime, no penalty.
Also, I got a call today from BMW finance, just to confirm details. They tried to sell me a BMW credit card!! I said NO, thanks, and he was very polite, and finished the conversation. YOu have to know how to handle these people, they are trained to do their jobs, no sense in getting angry with them, they are just trying to make a living separating us from our money. LOL.
I love the car. Glad I did it while I had the dough. Who knows with this government if they're going to tax the air we breath any day now, we'll have nothing left!!
Take care, let me know how you make out.
