its not the deposit persay, its taking you off the market-- you're "invested" with the dealer thus unlikely to continue shopping other dealers
Each BMW dealership has it's own process and who has access and who does not. Dealerships are independent business and my have different controls in place. Some dealers may only allow the Sale Managers to enter orders. That is why I asked the poster whether it is a small or large dealer. I work with dealers (including BMW) and have observe vast differences in the way a dealer franchise is run in the sales, parts and service operations.
