Sweet. So this is not a BMW mandate - it is whatever the state will let the dealership get away with (yes it is GA - the person who speculated GA or FL). So if I'm buying new with a custom order - picking it up from the factory in SC - I should be able to negotiate with a dealership out of state and pay the lower doc fee. Anyone know of a state lower than IL $161?
I am doing the Drive Team BMW this weekend for my $1000 off. Is it correct this is generic cert with some unique number that can be used any any dealership - not just the one I do my drive at? That will impact my doc angle above. I read a post saying it comes by email 2 weeks later. Anyone have a different experience where they get it faster.

Can anyone recommend a dealership they have purchased from that gives some sharp offers? Seems like OH or IL would be good options for me due to lower doc fees ($161-250) with factory pickup. Would prefer canvasing every dealership in a state with low doc fees...

New York has a doc fee cap of $75. I live in CT and bought my '11 328xi from a dealer in NY because CT dealers charge a conveyance (DOC fee). Good luck!

I wouldn't assume that I could get the vehicle cheaper in a state with a lower doc fee...
That's all revenue for the dealer.. If the GA dealer charges $600, then all things being equal, they should be able to put a selling price of $500 less than a dealer with a $100 doc fee...
It's the total cost that matters.... focus on that, and not how they get to it..

Wow. Seems like a pretty good deal. Is that out the door including tax and all?
Did you ever find out what the new incentive is? Only thing I see out there is $1k for recent college grad.

Confirming it works on X3's. Just got mine and applied it to my sales order. The date varies by region. They move from dealership to dealership across the country. In July they are in the NY area.

I had to post my price on here since this forum helped me negotiate my price in Phoenix AZ:
Vermillion Red Metallic
Discount 6.8% $3104
Plus $1000 BMW Drive USA
Total off 9%
Thanks for the posts. The first dealership was giving me 2% off and told me it was a good deal. The Costco price was 4% off MSRP. I told them I was looking for 7% off and I thought this was a good offer.
#1686 of 1822 My new X3 28i deal (on it's way from SC!)
May 23, 2012 (8:37 pm)
Here's what I ordered (pretty nicely I think). First time ordering exactly what I wanted! Happy with the deal too but have the option to get June rates if better as the X3 is arriving next month. I think it's about 8.5% discount including the extra $1000. If anyone knows the exact math would appreciate as well as if you think this is a good lease deal.

Anyone know about last minute Memorial Day Loyalty incentives? I just got a letter from BMW in the mail announcing but not specifiying (of course).
