Give or take. I would have at least shot an email to Garlyn Shelton, as it's not that much further than BMW of Austin from downtown. I hated going to either when I lived there.

This. Easiest, cheapest, and most secure. Ask the front desk when you check in or leave, they will give you a handful of parking vouchers. Theres a Ubahn stop right next to the garage, very easy...

No, it's not that, it's because you were looking to lease. I was toying with the idea of an M4 before going back to a 550i. Leasing up here is much more difficult than a quick finance/cash sale. I...

Went local. Ended up with $1500 over ED invoice. Which is actually what I was quoted by a sponsor since it was technically an "individual" order. Also, these guys have gone above and beyond the...

I know one or two guys that have made the drive back to Dallas from ATL in a day. To me saving $500 isn't worth the flight, time off work, and the driving experience back. I almost did it for an in...

Couldn't agree more. Also, there are deals to be had here, you just need to do some leg work asking around. On my X3 for instance, I reached out to each Dallas area dealership, and ended up with my...

That's just bizarre. You have car loan/lease history, a 780+ score, and you still got a denial. Something is off. I would call the finance dept directly, don't wait for your salesman to get back...

Have you had a major car loan before? BMW usually doesn't like to be the first. Is it a lease?

Also, you shouldn't have just gotten something in the mail. Your dealer would be all over this if...

You have no competition really, so the type of deal you would get would not be too favorable most likely. Remember, a lot of these smaller market dealers (I know SA is large, but it doesn't have 3-4...

This most likely. There's also always the chance they push US deliveries until March or April as a 2018 model. We've had several discussions about this in the F10 forum, as you also have to...

That seems to be correct for US Euro Delivery cars, as mine had a full tank as well back in March. I seem to recall one post where someone mentioned Euro customer cars do not get the same full tank.

Well, you're probably not going to save more than maybe another $100-$150, and that would involve driving to Atlanta or Florida. You've got a very good price for using a non board sponsor, I would...

I would definitely say $0 over ED invoice is not the norm. It's an exceptional deal, one that even board sponsors don't do. That said, $0 over invoice (or even below) on a non ED car is more than...

When I was over there in March, it was about 1.05 to 1.00. At the time, a lot of us thought it would eventually hit 1 to 1, but it seems to have stabilized somewhat.

Still a lot of killer deals...

On certain Lexus models, GX for instance, they do have heated and cooled seats. They have them in the Denalis and Escalades I've been in also, so a true a/c seat is different from the ventilation. ...

You probably had ventilated seats, not cooled seats. Big difference.

Edit: ventilated on the BMWs, not sure on the 911.

No, you're right with the base MF. The dealers around here mark up the MF as much as possible. It's very difficult to get a DFW dealer willing to give you the absolute lowest allowed.

One MSD decreases the MF by .00007 I believe, maxing out at .00049. So take that off the base, and that would be the absolute lowest MF you could get. That said, getting that in Texas will be next...

Yes, you can drop it off if you immediately hand them the keys after delivery. After you drive it outside the doors, you no longer have that option.
