What is this discussion about?
BMW 5 Series, Sedan, Wagon

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 4114 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.

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.

#3608 of 4114 Final offer on 528i
Mar 29, 2010 (6:59 pm)
So I pulled the trigger this weekend on this. Keep in mind it's a LOANER, but since it's a lease, I really don't care about the miles since I'll be covered under warranty the entire time I'll own it:
2010 White / Cream 528i
Selling price was about $36,500 / MSRP was just around $50K.
$3,000 total down / 7% tax.
$544 / month with taxes
I know the 2011 are around the corner, but I can't wait the time for the costs to come down.
Good deal? What do you think?

What do they charge for doc fee (is that the only mark up fee)?
AWD seems to comes with 3-stage heated seat? Does it come with heated steering wheel also?
#3610 of 4114 An offer on 2008 528xi
Apr 01, 2010 (3:16 pm)
I was offered on a 2008 528 xi
Options: Premium Package, Premiun Sound, Xenon lights, iPod, Cold Weather
Sale price: 28K + TTL
Still has 1 year warranty left on the car
The car is in excellent condition. Is this a good deal?
#3611 of 4114 2007 Offer
Apr 03, 2010 (6:54 pm)
I wish I can afford to purchase new Series 5, but at this moment I have to settle for CPO 2007 which will give me warranty until 2013 when hopefully I will be able to get new one.
There arenít many in Seattle area, and best deal that I got so far is:
Black on Black
Original asking price is $32,000 now it is listed as internet promotion for $29,992
and dealer said that it canít go any lower.
I do like car but think that I shouldnít pay more than $28,500, Edmunds shows $30,000.
Apr 03, 2010 (9:01 pm)
first, the 528 xi, I like the deal, the miles are good and its an 08, the only bummer about the 08s from my understanding is that you don't qualify for the extra two years of free maintenance, I think it is a fair deal.
on the 07 525 with 24,000 miles for 29,992, I like the miles and the packages. Don't be fooled that they cant go lower though. Dealerships do not buy used cars with the expectation of only making two thousand dollars. I have been wacthing the market for a couple of months now, and routinely see dealerships start prices at least 5000 higher than where they are willing to go. Based on auction prices and cost to certify, I would be quite surprised if they couldnt go to 27,000.00. That being said, this car is well equipped with great miles and that is a tough combonation to come by. I have had a couple of good offers for 525s, but I am just unsure about the power.....
