Thanks for the info! I'm hoping for an M5 ED as my next car.

Flow BMW: Just a little FYI= ///M models do not receive any ED discount, and they come out of inventory so your statement about $2k over invoice directly contradicts your initial post about cars coming from inventory do not count for your "deals".

Just wanted to remind you that when you are posting something here to be sure it is accurate or you may regret it later, as someone may take you up on that $2k over ED invoice on the ///M5 as that would be a steal of a deal, US invoice/wholesale - 7% ("ed invoice") + $2k is a great (unimaginable deal) on an //M5.

But when you go to look at the sheet and see there is no ///M ED wholesale....

You are going to catch a lot of grief with those doc fees.... you may just want to include them in your pricing structure; people here are smart to doc fees and most are turned off by them (there are countless threads about doc fees and why not to pay them!)

Best of luck and thanks for being a sponsor! Your accessories deals are looking good!

Thanks for all the feedback, I/we appreciate it.

I didn't have the M5 in my initial pricing structure, and I'm still missing some other models which I'm working on. I asked the boss specifically on the M5, and we will take a $2k over invoice on an M5 for Euro delivery. Since its the same invoice number, and its published on the bulletins, I didn't realize it would cause a problem (you still don't have to pay Maco and training) , so I apologize up front for that. $2k over on an M5 is a pretty good deal, any way you slice it, IMO.

I also understand that *nobody* likes doc. fees, however they are a fixed policy for Flow Companies (and every other dealer group that I've ever been associated with). Basically they are a fact of life. I pay them, the GSM pays them, the GM pays them, etc. I'd rather disclose them upfront than to have a misunderstanding later. Of course if Mr. Flow wants to change that policy, I'll be glad to pass that along.

Your more than welcome, I always feel it is two way street you are helping by sponsoring so we should help you with increased sales and help along the way as there are always "teething" issues as we all are well aware.

BTW- that is an amazing deal on the ///M5 for ED, since I do not believe you can get CSI money on that since it is ED and you are taking money off the top you are basically losing on both ends, people here should definitely look into that!

Thanks and Best of luck!

I think it's ok to charge any fees you need to as long as they are listed upfront as you did here.

Most of the people here will include it in the amout paid over invoice. A $500 over invoice deal with a $400 doc fee is considered a $900 over invoice deal.

What about ED with a lease? Will you give the BMWFS buy/base rate and will the acquisition fee be the base fee?

I will include the 335d in this special, *as long as it comes out of the ED dept's allocation* BMW is doing a "first come first serve" offering to the dealerships, beginning on a Feb 23rd delivery date. If someone wants to reserve a slot, PM me. If we miss the opportunity to get one of BMW's allocations, then pricing will be the normal ED MSRP.

Hi All,

We are still running our Euro Delivery specials, but the doc. fee has gone to $459. The new 7-series is $3500 over ED invoice as long as its from the ED allocation (limited number).

Thanks

Thankfully, California law limits doc fees a/k/a junk fees a/k/a additional dealer profit to $45.

I am sure they are a fact of life at most dealerships, but let's call a spade a spade.

And yes - thanks for disclosing up front so that people can compare apples with apples.

Do you fine folks at Flow have any updated ED pricing structures or does the $1000 over with ED inventory plus doc fees deal still apply? I'm all for sending business to the local Bimmerfest sponsor and my wife has been very pleased with her Cooper S from Flow Mini in Raleigh so you guys would win the tie-breaker with any of the other regional dealers. I want to do ED + PCD on an M Sport 335 in September (the ED in September not the PCD). I know pricing isn't out on that yet, but I want to get the order in as soon as it's available.

Thanks!
Matt
