#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.
#3361 of 4028 MY PURCHASE 2007 530i
Jul 03, 2009 (1:18 am)
I finally did it.
this is BMW #2.
2007 BMW 530i Black Sapphire / Black Leather
50k bumper to bumper ends 12/2010!
CPO Car. Ends 12/2012
I paid $32,500.
I also paid $1800 for the extended maintainence plan until 12/2012.
(THE EXTENDED MAINTAINENCE PLAN WENT UP ON 5 series JULY 1 2009 by $300-$500 (cost / retail?) - CONFIRMED
the dealer screwed up and at the end said, "i scrweed up, the maintainence is $300 more." I told him to eat it up. and he did.
I was very happy with the deal because I had previously haggled with another dealer for over 3 hours to get a similar deal (and on a 525i, not this nicer 530i), and with this dealer I got the deal in under 5 min.
Not the color combo i wanted but I was in a crunch and needed it badly.
530i has a little more kick anyway!
car+TTL + Maint=$37k approx
I did the 3.9% for 60 months.

Speedy, Congratulations! That sounds like a nice, clean vehicle. Low miles! Mine had 24K miles on it which I thought was pretty low, but 18K is great. That sounds like a very nice car, and you should be very happy with it.
#3363 of 4028 Need Quick Help - 2010 535xi
Jul 10, 2009 (6:55 pm)
I have an interesting story. i have 2008 535xi which i love but have had regrets that i didn't get the comfort access and satellite radio . . . and have been planning to trade it in. well - i took my car in to get it detailed and the service people spilled some type of cleaning agent on the display unit. long story short, it permanently marked/stained the display and it is a $4,000 repair which the dealer assumed responsibility for. i agreed that in exchange for not replacing the unit, the dealership would give me preferential terms on a lease. i haven't done the analysis but would appreciate some assistance on the following questions:
1. What are the pros/cons of the bmw select program? the dealer has offered 2.9% APR with 60 month contract term with the ability to refinance the vehicle again at the end of the term with guaranteed 2.9% APR or move into another vehicle.
2. when you lease a vehicle, do you negotiate as if you are purchasing a vehicle and therefore the lease terms are based on the negotiated value or is is simply based on the MSRP of the vehicle as configured?
3. i've never leased a vehicle so i do appreciate any help the community can provide
#3364 of 4028 Key out - Radio Still Playing
Jul 11, 2009 (7:48 am)
I was washing the car today (530i, 2007) and when I removed the key, I was washing the car and noticed that the radio was STILL ON. I put the key back in, foot on brake, pushed it in, and it popped out like usual and radio went off. I want to know how it was, or what I did wrong, that I was able to remove the key from the ignition, and the radio kept on playing. That worries me.
Also - I need to know what happens when I'm at the car wash, engine running, and I get out of the car, does the car automatically lock, and what if it does? How do I get back in the car?
Maybe I need to read the manual, but I haven't gotten the time yet.
