: Trying to find a 535xi

I'm trying to locate a 535xi for a friend (so he'll sell me his 330xi).

The local dealership here says the only way for him to get one (at least through them) is to custom order it and wait 3 months. He wants one now and I want him to have one now! :)

Are these things scarce nationwide? Couldn't the dealership locate one somewhere else and "trade" for it or something along those lines?

I think he prefers to buy from this dealership and not buy from another dealership and have them ship his car out to him. If the local dealer could locate one and do a dealer trade for it, that seems pretty logical and reasonable.

They are all over the place here in the Northeast, and I test drove one today.
