Have you passed by these signs before? In our area these are not common, so can't think of a place to be able to try it out. I am guessing it only pops up if it detects a similar sign on the road.

Paying $1000 over invoice on a 2016 in my opinion, is not recommended. You should be able to do better, a good amount better. The 17's have been out for a couple months now, and the 6 series in...

You could probably get to that discount on a 2016, it seems like bmw is doing everything in their power to get rid of 6 series on lots right now. And the residual on a 2016 is going to be much...

So you don't believe the tax credit thing changes anything when it comes to the MF? Do you believe if they wanted to they could use the base one pay mf?

I don't know if that is necessarily true, although I can't get a straight answer so it might be.

There is no doubt that I am completely confused on how it is done, I have done it before (with higher mf), so I know it can be done.

This is a 2nd/3rd car for me, and I am in no hurry. Technically I should just wait and order a 2017 for $1000 over invoice, but I seem to enjoy the chase too much to currently do that.

That is probably what I should ask for then. If I can get them to use the .00108 MF and still save on the taxes, then that becomes another $2150 off the total price. That is a deal I would take.

The excuse I have heard before from a couple dealers in Texas, is that because they are saving you so much in taxes, they up the money factor to get something back for it.

From my understanding there is some type of loophole in Texas which allows them to use the tax credit on a different trade in (not part of the deal) and offer it to a customer.

Now this is where...

Is there a timeline range on when sales support usually goes away? I am guessing it's somewhere around the 18 month mark?
