Hey guys,

After months of investigation, I've finally settled on a build for a 2010 750i. Basics are as follows:

- 750i
- M Sport w/ 20" Double spoke (303 M)
- Carbon Black
- Camera Package
- Convenience Package
- Driver Assistance
- Luxury Seating
- Premium Sound
- Rear Ent
- Ceramic Controls
- HUD
- Instrument Panel with Leather Finish
- Sirius
- Smartphone Integration
- iPhone Snap in Adapter

Price as configured - $103,705. Of course, you gotta tack on 6% sales tax, etc.

I plan on purchasing (will keep the car longer this time around and mileage will be between 15-20 annually anyways). So the main question is, before I haggle, what can I reasonably expect to get discounted? Just trying to get a feel for what the market is out there. I don't want to gouge but don't want to leave money on the table either. For reference, I'm in Atlanta.

Thanks.

Jeff

There is also $1,000 gas guzzler tax that gets added on.

Right. I just got a purchase XXX from the rep I have been working with at the local dealership. It has all the extras listed so I have a total price. For usage here, I figured that only the total as configured (before tax, destination, guzzler, etc) would matter.

there is a dealer in Pennsylvania that was offering about 1K over invoice if the car was special order. It equates to about 18-20% off MSRP, and then you have to add in tax, tag and title

It was "New Motors" in Northern Pa., Erie:

I do not mean to be argumentative but I did my deal at an amount over invoice so I am aware of what invoice is on these cars.

From my experience the mark-up between invoice and MSRP is nowhere close to 18-20%. It is much less.

There is about 9%.

Regardless of the margin they have between MSRP and invoice, so many BMW dealers think that it is a privelege for you to come in and order a car from them. Even in these struggling economic times, the deals being offered by BMW are abysmal compared to other high end manufacturers. Specifically MB. I looked at ordering a customized CLS550 and the best deal I could find was 3.5% over invoice. Try getting that from a BMW dealer. That's why I will hold out for a low mileage 2009 750 after the 2010s come out in numbers.

I am not sure of the regional differences but you could certainly do better than 3.5% out here. I also believe several deals discussed on this board are also better than that.

Jeff,

I recently ordered 2010 750i Saphire Black, Oyster/Black interior, Ash Grain Wood $80,455, with M-Sport Package $6,500, 20" wheels $1,300, Camera Package $750, Destination $825, Gas tax $1,000 = $90,830; dealer cost $83,810, and I paid $1,000 over invoice with 1.9% apr through BMW finance. Car was ordered on 9/19/09 and it should arrive in mid November. My business partner also ordered a similar vehicle with more options with long body and got the same deal.

I talked to them about trading in my 60 for a new 750 and they quoted me 82K for the 750 then minus 60K for the trade in. The 750 they had, had an MSRP of about 102K. I think that comes out to around 20%, atleast in my case.

I am going by what I saw the BMW computer say was the cost of my car verses the MSRP of my car and it was about 9%.

I agree that your numbers come to around 20% so something is very wrong on either your side or mine. I am going to check with my CA.

Thanks for the info.

Follow up from my CA says it is probably a demo. Selling a $102,000 MSRP car for $82,000 is many thousands below dealer cost.

That doesn't sound right to me either. $1,000 or so over invoice (or a little less than 1% over invoice) seems to be the max discount around here. Frankly, if you can get a new 750 for $82k all in, my advice would be to truck it up to New York and sell it for $95k.
