Invoice IS invoice (actually, the invoice you see on the internet is LOWER because it does not include MACO, the advertising co-op fee that the dealer is charged to cover advertising in their area). Also, there are no incentives at this time on the X3.


So the bottom line is, I want to get one of these cars, in the worst case scenario, for right at or below that invoice price.

Is it possible? Would a 30 to 40 percent downpayment help?
Good luck. Buying at invoice will take alot of work and a willing dealer. I can't see you getting anything below.

And, whether you put down nothing, 20%, 50% or pay in cash, it makes no difference to the dealer-- they get the money all the same. In fact, they prefer that you finance as much as possible, because it is in their favor.
