As you can tell from my other post today, we were able to order our 335i today with a PCD . and the dealer kept the same above invoice price they gave us on the earlier order !! Keep up the great service you do for all of us . Anyone out of SD , I will tell them to use you every time. We will take a trip up to Santa Barbara after we get our new Baby and for sure share an Adult Beverage! Hope your back feels better. Are they taking good care of you at Cottage ? I used to call on that Hospital back in the early 90s. Have a great Summer Selling and Surfing PS. I prefer people to call me Jim , not MR. T., That is my Father. I use that line all the time.

Sounds great! Stop by for a visit any time...

I keep my office loaded with Bimmerfest schwag (stickers, license plate frames, and Bimmerfest tees)!


Congrats!

335i are currently more scarce than M3 Coupes. Unless you are willing to do European Delivery, the best that I can offer you
for a 335i today would be a spot on our waiting list... There just aren't any 335i to be had... Let's hope that changes soon...

Email me jshafer@sbautogroup.com if you are interested or would accept a 328i instead.

That's the model we are featuring. Currently taking custom orders on Model Year 2013 328i. These are July production,
which will arrive stateside at end of August.

Hope this helps,
Jon

Mein Auto: MINI
Hey everyone


I have a question that may seem strange but please bare with me...

I am currently searching to buy a new car. My MINI Cooper S got totaled 6 weeks ago. I live in Europe but I have a few friends in USA and Canada. On the US BMW website the prices for a similar European F30 is huge when you convert US dollars into Euros.

My question is if I buy an US spec F30 through a US citizen friend of mine, choose European Delivery option, can he sell the car to me here in Europe after he picks it up? IF yes can we say on the invoice any amount we want and then calculate all import/other taxes using that amount on the invoice?


Please don't "BOO" me if this is not an appropriate question...
Thanks

Sorry, but US spec/ordered vehicles MUST be returned to BMWAG for shipment to USA for final delivery,
otherwise you are exporting the vehicle, a huge . Big trouble for the US dealer if this happens..

Yikes! Hard to believe.

Less than 2 weeks before re-delivery on mine & counting down...
I still have not seen ANY F30 in the wild here, though my driving has been limited to work commute for the most part. See plenty of E9x.

Hi Jon,

My wife and I are looking for a 328i in manual transmission. I know there aren't too many in manual transmission so we're not all that picky about color. We're up here in the Bay Area but I went to school down in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara isn't all that far from there.

Send me an email. Sounds like we need to place a custom factory order...

Update: The BMW allocation Gods gave me a blessing. I have a couple of open 335i allocations/production slots now available at Internet Special pricing for CALIFORNIA buyers... They won't last long, so don't miss this rare opportunity to score yourself a custom factory-ordered 335i (September build).

Hi Jon!

This site has been so very useful. I'm excited to join the BMW family, but pricing has been daunting!

Have been doing a ton of research in my quest for a new 328i sedan jet black on venetian beige leatherette, automatic. Don't need any extras as trying to stay in budget - I know, boring, eh? Exhausted mentally from dealing with multiple dealerships via internet and phone (Bev Hills, Pacific, Encinitas, Long Beach). Hoping you can help a first time buyer with a good price?

Thanks ahead of time!

Jon, Have great time in Maryland. What part are you going ? Enjoy the Crab Cakes, Soft Shell Crabs, Blue Crabs, the the Whole Crab layed out on a table on top of Newspaper with a pitcher of Beer. My brother used to live in Baltimore , was a Chemistry Professor at John Hopkins , so when we visited, we would do all that great Crab Feasting in the Inner Harbor. The Aquarium is also awesome to see too., You could even catch an Orioles Game at Camden Yards. Awesome your Bimmer is almost here. Keep us all updated We can't wait for our PCD in the Fall

Sorry, I must have missed your post. I hope it's not too late. A while back I had to turn off PMs...it just became too overwhelming... so I instead communicate with customers/prospects
via email. The best way to reach me is jshafer@sbautogroup.com. Thanks!

OK, What is your price on a 2013 328Xi on a ED delivery in Munich.
Need price quote based on ED dealer wholesale, plus any fees you add to the deal.
Don't worry about adding options right now.

Are you in Colorado? As noted in the first post, this offer is for California buyers (or adjacent states) exclusively,
with pick-up here in Santa Barbara.

I do have an Internet Special for Euro Deliveries; in fact, almost half of my business is Euro-Deliveries...

Hello Jon,

I've sent you 2 pricing request emails more than a week ago and I did not hear back from you since. I know you might be busy but can you please take a look at those emails? They are sent to jon@bimmerfest.com

Thanks,
Yenal

Hi Yenal,

I am so sorry, please in the future (anyone else too) if you wish to contact me for an Internet Special Quote Request, my work email is JSHAFER@SBAUTOGROUP.COM. I have the spam filter settings on my Bimmerfest email account turned up very high as the account is now so old that I get bombarded with spam. The SB Auto Group email account is much better/faster, and the appropriate email account for sales-related communications... For Bimmerfest site administration questions/comments/help need, you can use Jon@bimmerfest.com. Thanks!



P.S. I have new lower pricing now on all 328 orders through the rest of the year. To anyone reading this, if you are a serious California buyer, willing to place a custom factory order, I will not be undersold. Period. Provide me with the lowest (legitimate) quote that you can get, and I will either match or beat it. Must be a Bimmerfest member to qualify...

Jon,

Any insights on why the 335 is still so exclusive?

They are using those I-6 powerplants in so many different (larger) models now, and producing so many higher fuel economy 4 cylinder vehicles in order to improve/optimize MPG across all lines..
