There was a long silence on the phone.

The she says, "Where did you get these codes & invoice prices from?" I said, "The internet, obviously." She goes, "I'll call you back." Calls me back and says, "We can knock off $700 off MSRP." I said, "Did you even listen to a word I said? Who cares about MSRP, I want invoice + $1k." Then she launched into her speech about "$700/month is the least she can do, etc... " Basically, not even listening, trying to steer me into the whole "How much per month can you afford" type of a deal. I said "Thanks" and we parted ways.

OH!. Also, the GM was sitting there and then he goes, "You live here but you got your car in NY?!" .... Then he looks at some of my other posts and says, "OH. You did PCD." With this fallen face, undoubtedly cursing the damn Performance Delivery and its tendency to let people buy half way across the country.

This sounds likely the dealerships in St Louis not just BMW all of them. I stopped buying cars here and travel up to Chicago, they have a higher turnover rate on cars and can push them out the door at lower prices. I have bought several cars this way and all of the negotiating has been done over the phone before I make the haul up there.

Several of my friends have done the same thing.
