Wow, that sounds like a great deal! That is more than 16% off of MSRP! Our quote for a 2009 128i with sports package, heated seats, and manual transmission was 5% below MSRP (including everything but ttl). Price is $29, 948 and in addition with BMW financing (3.9% for 60 months) BMW will make the first two payments. Trade in is slightly less than kbb (I am assuming this is pretty good with the present economy).
My husband is ancy and wants to buy it without getting any other quotes! Unfortunately, I think he will be leaving some money on the table. If anyone else has any recent experience with purchasing a 1 series I would really appreciate hearing it.

How much did you pay?

We bought in March. There aren't many 128is available so we ended up gettting one on the lot. The only options it has are heated seats and ipod connector. We paid right at invoice, I think about $28,600 before ttl. We also did the BMW financing at 3.9% for 60 months and they make the first two payments. Originally they offered us $7000 for our trade in (2001 330i with premium package). After a couple days, they called and bumped it up to $7,500. Hope this helps, good luck!

Thank you very much jetzzs for the reply.
How do you like the 128i so far? Do you think 135i worthy?

My 128 has been a nice driving car and I'm happy with. It could do with a bit more torque though.
I think the 135i, especially with the sport package, would be more fun (and the M logo is sexy), but it's hard for me to justify an extra $10,000 for the 135i.

Thanks very much for the reply.
That's exactly what I am thinking.
Maybe go 328i finally, just about $4000 different, plus 0.9 for 328i.
The sport package is a must have for me whatever 128i or 328i. But it's really not easy to find a car only with S.P., especially 128i.
M logo is sexy, but I don't think it (M Package) worthy $17xx more for 328i, and $13xx (?) more than sport package.
Do you think so?
A dealer offers invoice for ordering what I want, which takes about 6 weeks, is it a good deal?
I want 128i or 328i only with sport package, manual.
What else options are better to have?

Invoice for something you have to order seems like a pretty good deal. If you haven't already, I would check the BMW website to see if there are any incentives. If there are, you may be able to get it for less than invoice (that is what I paid for a 128i on the lot).
The configuration you are thinking about is exactly what I wanted, but because I didn't want to wait for 6 weeks I took one they had on the lot (128i with only heated seats and ipod hookup). I was a little disappointed not to get the sports package.

Thank you jetzzs.
Yes, exactly same here. They offered one 128i in the lot with heated seats and ipod/USB for $1000 off of the invoice, the deal is great.
But it's not what I want, so I am going to order one.
I have not found any incentive for a manual 128i, though there probably $1250 (?) for 328i auto, $3000 for 335i, $750 for leasing.
But the promotions are getting expired, there may be new things coming next month, we'll see.
If someone is paying less than invoice or knows they have this kind of package installed, please kindly let me know.

I'm in the market for a 128i equipped minimally as you mentioned. Where was the deal for $1000 under invoice?
