Probably no change on the 06 530 and 525. Rumor has it that the 545 residuals will go down 2%. Check the Ask-a-Dealer forum for updates later in the week.

But the invoice price of the car went down slightly, too, as of March 1! I know, because my invoice price is $520 higher than the published March 1 numbers....

This will help take some of that sting away....

Be careful, you might be comparing apples to oranges. That $520 sounds pretty close to the MACO fee. The BMW price sheets don't inlcude MACO while Edmunds et al often do. When I checked the pre- and post-March price sheets I don't recall there being any change. By the way the System & Training fee (which is included in the BMW price sheets) went from $160 to $180 back on January 1st.

I checked several times. TGray5, arnolds, and I, all did euro deliveries during the Easter Holiday in Germany and we all had base prices of cars that were $520 higher that what is now being used. New price sheets came out effective March 1, 2005 and they lowered the European Delivery Invoice price exactly $520.

I made an attempt to try and see if I could get that money back from my dealer but no dice...they paid the before March 1, 2005, price for the car from BMW.

BMW is really trying to move these 545is...there are FABULOUS financing deals out there just for the taking.
