2012 328i Modern line trim replacement

Hi all,

A dealer has an f30 launch car, glacier silver modern line for sale. This is one of the first builds since it still has the front bumper wart. The MSRP is 49,370 and they marked it down to $41,992. The story goes that the guy traded it back after 350 miles because the wife hated the car. Poor guy took like an $8k hit not including taxes and fees. Frankly, I don't blame the guy's wife since that faux wood trim is very fugly.

Two questions:

Is there any way the dealer can lease this car out kinda like a demo ?? Perhaps say it was a service loaner. If not, I feel like I can get them to shave atleast a couple grand more off the car.

The more important issue is interior trim. Any thoughts or suggestions on where to get replacements? The only option i've found so far is the M-performance alcantara/ carbon fiber. This would eliminate some of the hideous but not sure it really matches.

The car is used. Technically BMWFS will lease a used car (at least a CPO), but the terms will be bad, bad, bad.

The trim - actually it is real wood. You might ask the dealer to swap the trim out from one of his current loaners.

ask dealer to swap in a M performance carbon fiber trim set, that would be a good trade.

I would not let a bumper wart, rustic wood trim with only 350 miles get in the way of a $7,378 discount, it's deal, take it, and yes they'll lease it. Or lets put it this way, I would take in a heart beat. BTW is it a dealer in Chicago or it's suburbs offering the deal, if so let me know and I'll look in to it.
Highest Regards

Do keep in mind MY2012 only has 6 weeks left, and MY2013 F30's brand new are selling at decent discounts(both 328i and 335i), at least in CA.

Point taken and agree discounts will be given to the outgoing 2012's but what I find attractive about this deal, it exceeds a 7% discount plus it will include the balance of BMW's comprehensive Warranty Policy.
Highest Regards
