The MSRP and the invoice for my config came out to be $48825 and $44915 respectively. Armed with the config report, I contacted about ~8 BMW dealers in my area (metro Washington dc) and 4 of them got back to me with an offer of 500 over invoice ($45415). From reading the posts, it seems like a good offer but I feel that there is room to go down further since it was all done through email and honestly I did not even start any negotiation. Is this a good deal and has anybody had any experience doing ED (or US delivery) at or below invoice? All the dealers have agreed to give me a $750 rebate on top of the "500 over invoice offer" as a current BMW owner
IMHO $500 over invoice before any rebates is an excellent price. You may be able to do a little better since you received that quote from 4 different dealers. By playing them off against each other you may eventually bring that price down by a few hundred but I believe you will quickly get to a point of diminishing returns of effort and heartburn vs. savings. My philosophy has been that the dealership deserves a reasonable profit on their product so I was happy with $500 over invoice and did not need to squeeze every last ounce of blood out of them.
