Also a couple of questions for those in the know, how does the BMW loyalty program work? I currently drive a 2003 530i, does this have to do with where I originally purchased the vehicle?
It feels like a good deal, but I'm looking towards the buying wisdom of this forum for advice!
#3900 of 4028 Loyalty Credit
Sep 20, 2011 (5:34 pm)
Great forum that has helped me negotiate a good price on the car. I had a question regarding the Loyalty credit. I have what I believe is a pretty good price for a 2011 535i - dealership is in the Washington DC Metro area. However, I'm being told that I cannot get the $1000 loyalty credit because I am getting 3.9% financing via BMW Financial Services as that rate is supposedly a loyalty APR. From reading the incentives/rebates on this site, it appears that the financing at 3.9% isn't a loyalty APR, but just an incentive APR. Can someone clarify? Appreciate the help/advice!!

#3904 of 4028 Recent 550i Deal in SoCal
Sep 26, 2011 (1:35 pm)
Just had 550i delivered last week and got reasonable deal with residual support from BMW for existing 2011 inventory.
$71125 Sticker, neg. sale price $66744
12 K miles, 36 mos. residual .61 and money factor .00155 with loyalty
$2173 total drive off and payment $801/mo. before CA sales tax
Love this car so far. Turned in 08 M3 conv. and this car might be just as fast and handles great with the Sport + setting, then great comfort and luxury in normal mode. This model 550i is nearly the same size as my old 2006 750i but much better drive.
Drove the 535i and really liked it too and great engine, but with the lease residual support the 550i cost difference was minimal so got the power I really wanted.

I agree that the Acura MXD forum has a lot more chatter and plenty of useful feedback. I bought a MDX last year as well and the forum was very helpful.
I just purchased a 2011 528i a few days ago. Back with Black interior. This is what I got:
Paid: 42,600 + TTL
The price paid includes a $1000 loyalty discount and $1700 navigation credit. I know that I could have had the dealer shave off another $300-$500 on the final price, but opted to buy at the listed price to avoid the repeated back and forth. This car is pretty basic with the only options being NAVIGATION and USB(iphone connectivity), which are the only features which I really care about. A lot of features like wood trim, moonroof, etc come standard so this is exactly what I wanted.
The dealer informed me that he could give me $7000 off of sticker price if I choose to buy a 535i, since they have a lot more 535i's in stock. The 535xi has an extra $1500 credit, in addition to the loyalty and navigation credits.
#3906 of 4028 At last....
Oct 23, 2011 (7:59 pm)
...I have landed on a 2008 535i. I was burnt by a couple of BMW dealers on CPO's which they sold without the CPO warranty even after advertising them as CPO's. I thought this was deceptive advertising, but through this forum I found out that this happens. Anyway, I ended up buying from an independent dealer.
Alpine White on Light Beige Dakota w/ Dark Poplar
Ipod & USB
The car was checked by the local BMW dealer and a speaker, some kind og leg and the wiper blades were changed. Warranty ends on September 2012.
I need some advice on Extended warranty. Please suggest where to buy and how much they usually cost.
THANK YOU ALL for everything that you've contributed to me through this forum.

Sorry for the delay in response. For some reason I did not get notified on your query.
I bought the car from Peter Pan BMW in San Mateo(Bay Area). They had a car identical to what I purchased. However, it no longer shows up in the inventory. You may want to checked if other dealerships have something similar.
