The dealer called today and agreed to almost 8% off MSRP so I will most likely buy the 228i for cash.

Four year free maintenance and warranty plus rebate from BMWCCA. Hard to beat.

Just this past Monday, a BMW dealer agreed to my 39 month calculated lease payment. He would have agreed to any number I gave him, because he would simply move up or down his "money down" for "fees"....

Of course not. It's pure padded profit. They have a nerve to ask for $2000 down. Should be more like $1100 down max.

It's like selling a house. You get greedy and overprice it, it sits.

Wow! Great deal! I'm glad I didn't sign on the dotted line. Florida is a cesspool regarding car buying/leasing.

What % off of MSRP did you get if you don't mind my asking?

Glad I walked out.:)
