OK So I didnt pick up the car I mentioned above.
I really want a NAV and have decided to wait for the color I want. Titanium Grey or White with a Black or Grey interior.
The problem is that all the cars with NAV seem to have other options attached to them as well (the most common of course being the premium package)...
Guys- any help here- what will BMW FS have for the month of July on CPO 2007 cars? anything better???
I AM IN A CRUNCH and need to purchase before July 5!
I have options, but not with the EXACT things i am looking for (color, etc.)
#3352 of 4028 BMW FS 2009 JULY PROMOTIONS ON CPO?
Jun 28, 2009 (6:20 pm)
Hi kyfdx and Car_man, any idea what the promotions will be through BMW FS in 2009? I am looking to purchase a CPO (2007 or 2008) but dont know if I should wait for July to see what happens or continue on and purchase by June 20. What do you think? When do they usually disclose what is going to happen in July? Do dealers know already? help!

what is the sales tax up to now in CA? We have 6% here in CT.
That tax added over $2000 to my car.

#3355 of 4028 What about this deal 2007 CPO bmw 525i nav sport premium
Jun 29, 2009 (8:27 pm)
Can you tell me how much I should offer on this deal?
silver grey/black interior
Dealer ASK: $32995
Sport, Premium, Nav pacakges
50k bumper to bumper warranty ends: 5/ 2010
CPO warranty only covers drivetrain (engine,transmission).
I am slightly hesitant on the deal because the b2b warranty is leaving me with 11months or 20k miles left to make sure the nav, audio, a/c etc are all OK (these items not covered by CPO extneded).
I really like a car (or 2) with 18 months/25k b2b warranty left. Just cant find one with the nav option!
How much should I offer?

They tried to sell me a BMW credit card!!
You might have passed up on a pretty good deal. I was pre-approved for the BMW CC when I signed the papers on my CPO 525 a few weeks ago. 4.99% for 6 months then 6.24% variable afterwards. That is better than my Arkansas based CCs, which historically have the best rates nationwide. FWIW, YMMV....

I would leave the state before i paid 9.25% sales tax.... and the state is still bankrupt. California is the next fed bailout. But in a way I have to admire the ability/desire of Calif. residents to buy BMWs in a state where they get raped for taxes and their property values have declined 40-50%.
I fear for what was once my country. Someone please slap us when sales tax goes to 9+

so nobody has any comments about my deal??
#3359 of 4028 sales tax also
Jun 30, 2009 (5:45 pm)
Wow, Speedy, 9.25%!! Now I understand why you want to do the deal now. I would go with the NAV, I love my Nav, although I never expected to buy a car with nav.
Also, the Alpine White with the blk interior is a great combo. See I'm willing to pay more for the pkgs, you seem unwilling to pay more, you just want a stripped down car? Premium pkg gives you real leather, whereas they just give you "leatherette".
I would not buy a car and pay 9.25% tax, that's just me personally. That means I would have paid over $3,348 in taxes on the car I just bought, well over $1,100 more than I paid in taxes, here in CT.
Speedy, you should really have done a deal before end of June, they are desperate to make their sales quotas for the month, why didn't you close on the deal today?
What are you waiting for?
#3360 of 4028 535i 6 CD changer
Jul 01, 2009 (1:37 pm)
I recently bought a 535i '09 with premium pkg, logic 7sound . I was told by the dealer that 6 CD changer is a dealer installed option and would cost 1000$ extra. But on reading the 5series manual, it says that the Hi Fi sound comes with a 6 CD changer.
