I recently bought a new space grey/ grey interior with dark poplar trim 2010 bmw 528i premium package, value package, navigation, and heated seats. mileage on car 152.... MSRP: $49625.... selling price $43000 3 year lease with 12000 miles a year....i paid 2000 at signing ( including taxes, registeration, 1st month payment, msc fees.), plus 779 for the leasing protection plan.... my monthly payment came out to be 765.78 per month including taxes and everything. ( I didnt give 5000 at signing, which makes my monthly payment higher, but i gave very little out of pocket).
Also, im in california our sales tax is 9.75%
I'm very happy with the car. What do you think of the deal?

You paid a good price.
I also picked up a 2010 space grey/blk 535i with Premium Package, Value Package, M-Sports Kit, paddle shifters, power rear sun shade, split fold down rear seats and sat radio. New car, mileage was 5 when I took delivery.... MSRP: $59520.... selling price $49285 plus ttl.
Not too bad, i was trying to beat the carsdirect.com price and was happy I did.
#3599 of 4113 Pricing/Discounts on 528i
Mar 25, 2010 (4:40 pm)
Does any one got $9K-$9.5K off msrp on the 528i? If the previous post got $10K+ on 535i then it should be possible to get around $9K-$9.5K on a 528i.
Cars direct show $7,670 off msrp on a 2010 528i and some dealers are already quoting $8K. But i think if they have an inventory to clear then probably can discount more.

check out truecar.com
It will give you a true cost to the dealer including rebates and holdbacks to help.
They also list average prices sold. e.g. I spec'd a 535i at 60k. Average selling price and invoice were at $56k but the dealer cost is at $48.5k . Folks are leaving money at the table.

I think the dollar amount off of MSRP is a function of the car's price. I don't think you can expect to get the same amount of dollars off different priced vehicles. The margins and costs to the dealer are different.
Look at the M5 discount. Here's a car that MSRP is 90k selling for the upper 70k. Thats a lot more than 10k off a 535i but then again there's more 'margin' to work with.
Hope that makes sense.

As others have noted, discounts will vary dependent upon the margin the dealer is willing to accept. The current BMW marketing incentive to dealers is reportedly $5000 on the 528 and $6000 on the 535 which will also affect pricing.
Individual dealers may be more flexible on pricing where supply is long and demand is limited. As the 2011 5 series introduction draws near, discounts will increase but selection will decline.
I recently purchased a 2010 535ix wagon in titanium silver with an MSRP of $62,105 for $53,400 plus tax, registration, etc. BMW sells fewer than 1000 5 series (E61) wagons annually in the U.S. and reportedly will not import the 5 series wagon in the 2011 model, so the sales dynamics appear different than for E60 sedans.
#3604 of 4113 2009 535xi loaner?
Mar 27, 2010 (1:26 pm)
I was offered $39k on a 2009 535xi loaner today. The car has about 9000 miles on it. doesn't look brand new, but runs smooth. It is black on black, with premium package, cold weather, and Navigation. The dealer initially asked for $44k with a 2-year extended warranty, but quickly lowered to $39K without the extended warranty. I feel there's still some room for negotiation. Is this a fair price?

That is a good deal for an 09. If you plan on keeping the car for a long time, work on getting that extended warranty included for that lower price. Just sit in the showroom with your pre approved financing and a cup of coffee and wait it out. I suggest doing this on the last day of this month. If you really want the car let them know -- but only with the ext. warranty. They may cave in or cut the price enough to make it attractive. Of course you have to REALLY want the car. The 39k price is competitive.
#3606 of 4113 2010 535xi - bargain hunting time
Mar 28, 2010 (12:23 pm)
The dealers are aggressively lowering their prices on 2010 5-series cars in anticipation of the 2011 cars that will be delivered in late May/early June.
A friend of mine in Chicago just paid $49,000 for a brand new (with less than 50 miles) 535xi with Premium Package, navigation, leather seats, cold-weather package, etc. with MSRP of $58,500.
If you were to wait, I am guessing you will get a better deal although $49K for this car is good value particularly for AWD 5-series since the new 5-series AWD is not going to hit the U.S. for at least a year (most likely in Spring 2011). That is if you can live with the thought of having bought an "old" model.
BTW, we saw a ton of black cars but very few silver or metallic gray cars on the lot.
