Thanks, zoombie99. I was figuring that myself, but I had not yet seen others specifically say that. It helps a bit for my post on May 12, 2012 (7:56 pm).

Some people on bimmerfest claim that they got a 2,500 coupon off a 2012 including the 5 series. I never got the email even though I have a 3 series for my wife.
If you go to the Drive for team USA event at your local dealer, you will get a 1,000 off email certificate.
One dealer on bimmerfest claims he will sell the 5 series at his cost which is lower than invoice. He is in Calif.
My suggestion would be to go to the largest dealer in your area with the largest inventory. As always, you will get a better deal at the end of the month.
#3983 of 4028 EPP/Fleet program???
May 25, 2012 (2:17 pm)
Hello everyone. I have a question about the BMW Executive Preference Program (EPP) also known as the Fleet purchasing program, which allows me to buy a BMW through my company at a discount. Does anyone know about it? Is it a good deal? For a 5 series, the price is $3000 less than the "Dealer invoice/wholesale" cost.
Here is the quote I received back in December for a 2011 528i premium 1 car (price: $44,895 minus $3,000 (EPP incentive), plus $615 (pre-delivery inspection), plus $500 (MACO - not sure what that is), plus $599 (dealer fee), plus $250 (electronic registration fee), plus $2,616 (Florida tax), equals $46,733.22. Now, for a 2012, he said that it would be the same break down, plus the increase in price as a result of the base price of the 2012's being a bit more than the 2011's.
Is this a good deal? Are all of those fees to be expected?

Ditrasetman, I have purchased 3 BMW's and if you get 3k BELOW invoice, you are DOING great! I paid 32k for a used 2007 530i with 18k miles and just a few options (back in 2009).
ARe you getting options?

#3986 of 4028 528i Questions Before I Buy
May 28, 2012 (7:29 pm)
I am about to purchase a 2012 528i (just the premium one package), and I had a few questions before I bought it:
1) The MSRP on the car is $50,020.00. Through the EPP/Fleet Program of my company, I am getting it for $50,500 total (which includs the 7 year (3 years more than standard) 100,000 mile warranty ($3,490), tax, tag, title and all dealer fees). The price is $3,000 under dealer invoice. Is that a good price?
2) The 2012's are about to (or already have) end production, and in July the 2013's will begin production for delivery in late August, early September. Should I wait to get the newer model year? My understanding is that there is no actual difference in the car, besides a $600 higher base MSRP as well as a $400 higher premium one package (because it will now be bundled with the the satellite radio - which I do not need).
3) My 528i does not have navigation/technology package/bmw apps. I use my iPhone/Siri for all of my navigation needs. Am I making a big mistake by not getting it?

I've just read your post. So I don't know if you have bought your 2012 528i or not. In my experience, the end of the year is the best time to buy car if you can wait.
I've bought my 2012 528i back in Dec 2011, the MSRP was $53,395. Note that Back in Dec 2011, there were still brand new 2011 5 series on available for sale. And I paid $50,500 out the door including all taxes and license fee with 0.9% financing. But my car doesn't have the extended maintenance and warranty like your offer up to 100K miles. Mine is just regular maintenance and warranty of 4 years or 50k Miles. Oh I am from Southern California
Hope my info helps

What was your invoice price - did you end up paying below invoice?
