Ordered 335i: seemed to be too easy

So i just got back from my local dealership where I put down a deposit on a 2012 335i. I used bmwconfig.com to build my car, added $1,000 in dealer profit over invoice and presented that as my offer. The dealer accepted it in about 5 minutes, leaving me to worry whether I really had a good bead on the wholesale price. It should have been harder. He had two production numbers, and gave me one of them. I expected a more difficult time getting $1,000 over invoice on a new production model.

So, did I get hosed?

wait a second...are you saying you got it for 1k over msrp or 1k over invoice(which would probably be like 2500 off msrp) thats a decent deal if thats the case...my guess would be the delaer still has e90's...

I got it for $1,000 over the invoice price (not MSRP) as calculated on bmwconfig.com.

You gave the dealer 1k over invoice on a 3 series? LOL

I can put an order down when my dealer gets his next round of open build slots for a 3 series. I think my SA said new orders were going for $300-500 over invoice depending on the MSRP. Current E90s on the ground are selling for thousands UNDER invoice.

I would expect that for an E90 at the end of its production run. I am talking about an F30. Still, it sounds like I left $250 - $500 on the table. Such is life. If I only missed by $500 on a $50,000 car, I am not going to lose a lot of sleep.

8 weeks(ish) and counting.

You need to post lots of pics in your Bimmerfest garage so we can all see them whenever we get the chance

Got my production number. Now for 8 weeks of pointlessly logging in to BMWUSA to track the build.

Thanks for the praise. I still love this car, hard to believe this is year #10. F30 in 2012, but will keep this one for a long time.

The fact you did your research and worked from the invoice price means you likely did better than 95% or more of the people buying cars out there, so you definitely have the right attitude. Enjoy your new car!

There you go. At the end of the day, who cares. You have an awesome car coming.
