Price advice on a 2011 535xi leftover

I found a dealer that has a few 535xi leftovers. One is loaded with a MSRP about 69,000. What do you think would be a good price? Someone on another forum was just offered $11,000.00 off on a 2011 535 with a MSRP around $59,000 by a dealer. What should I aim for?

considering there were some uber deals in October 11 and December 11 that could put you close or over 5K under invoice at the time (add a bit for dealer profit), you should be able to score a deal.

always start at invoice. that's an old car that's been sitting around.

there's a ton of 3 series left too on lots that i've checked out, so dealers are carrying some large inventories in certain parts of the world.

i would think they'd want to unload.

however, i think i'd rather work a deal on a new model.

i've had suspension reprogramming, tweaks to the struts (turning), and and the latest ECU upgrade that knocks out the off the line lag on my 2011.

steering isn't perfect, but ok. i'd rather have a new build than an old one.

+1 5series.

This left-over should have some serious discounts. Since there are no leasing programs on a 2011 leftover, and unless the deal is extremely good, I'd skip and go with a 2012. 2013 isn't too far away either. I think April will have some incentives.

They will, at a higher money factor and lower residual. So you might as well get a 2012
