The other thing I don't understand is why Edmunds TMV doesn't reflect the incentives....can anyone answer that?

I actually drove one yesterday. My local dealer has 3, all blue without nav. I was pretty impressed. It's definitely on my short list. I'm still checking out a couple other cars, so I didn't press the price issue yet. They offered invoice minus incentives right out of the box, so I'm not sure how more room they have to go down. They did agree that the $4,000 is available though.
I was a bit disappointed that neither blue tooth, nor an ipod adapter are included in the base price, but they are available as a dealer add on. (ipod is included in the nav package)
I felt the interior materials and fit and finish were excellent, and I think I could seat in those seats all day.
Have fun with yours! What color did you get?

Wow! That means you should be able to get the car for a little more than $28K...impressive. I got the exact car you drove...Blue no-nav, I think #1380 of 5000.
I test drove the G37S, 135i & R32 and for $29K, I just couldn't justify the $37K for the 135 or G. And here is the crazy thing, I actually had MORE fun driving the R32 than either of those two cars. The 135i (manual) was wicked fast....but it was so smooth and quiet, it just didn't get my bp up ...of course, note that I've owned a 330i and it didn't feel that much different than it; and it certainly didn't look much different, inside or out. And the G37S was impressive with a nice exhaust note, but felt too unrefined. The R32 was the perfect balance between the two. And in ref to the Ipod...that was tough for me as well, but the Sat radio that is standard offers enough choices for music....and that way I don't tire of my Ipod tunes and reserve those for workouts and grass cutting.

Man, I'm itchin to get that car after hearing from you. I believe the one I drove was 4778 of 5000, or something close to that. You make a good point about the ipod. (I'm trying to talk myself into it I think ) Are you from New England?

Do you work for BayWest? Are you selling this vehicle? Did you buy this vehicle? Or is your post just for informational purposes??

Thanks In Advance

I haven't seen any incentives listed yet, but I would imagine that you should still be able to pick up a non-nav 08 R32 for somewhere between $28K-29K. I would think the $4K under invoice is still a very good target price.
I now have about 700 miles on mine and I love it. The power combined with the all wheel drive grip is amazing....I'm looking forward to reaching that 1000 mile mark and giving the launch control a try....should be fun.
