Ordered 528i Today

We ordered a 528i today with the following options:

Titanium Silver
Black Dakota
Anthracite Trim
Premium
Cold Weather
Premium 2
Comfort Access

MSRP $55,250

We were tempted by the 535i since we really like the 18" wheels better than the 17" on the 528i, but we were trying to keep to a target final price number and in the end decided that we'd prefer a more heavily optioned 528, to a lesser optioned 535i. We currently have an 08 528i and the power has been perfectly fine for our needs and the new car will have 10 more HP and 30 more lb/feet of torque plus the new 8 speed transmission.

We plan to do PCD in early September if all works out.

Car was ordered from VOB in Rockville, the 5th BMW I have bought there in the past 15 years. The deal was surprisingly good for a brand new model when they don't even have a car for sale on the lot (they have one 535i demo). I think we got a good deal due to our loyalty to the dealership. In respect for that arrangement, I won't post the actual selling price, but suffice it to say it was pretty much the same that I paid over invoice for the 08 528i and our 08 X5.

Congratulations John…

I order a 528i on June 7th and it was completed on June 19th. I am on the west coast and wish it would hurry up and get here. Interesting I have about the same feelings on the wheels as you do and also the same reasons for buying the 528 over the 535. Must be because we have the same first name. Enjoy your new ride when it arrives.
