Are Q4 programs announced tomorrow?
We should receive update Sales Support Programs tomorrow afternoon.

I believe there will be incentives available to all prospective buyers. BMW has a very strong annual forecast, are currently running behind MBZ
for luxury brand King, and a lot of product now available on the ground.

All of the key ingredients for "The Perfect Storm"...

John, is it sage to assume you will post the details on this thread?

I have heard the same from my friends at our dealer. I'm hoping for a little extra bump for our new 550i order I was going to place this weekend!

How about a working oil pump so I can actually take US Delivery of my M5. It's pending fix at the VDC

It depends..



Back in the day when we first launched Bimmerfest I posted EVERYTHING that was previously held "confidential".
Nowadays it's a little different. I post as much as I can get away with, without pissing too many people off.
It makes it extra-challenging since I have a dual relationship with BMWNA.



You can be sure I will post as much as I can, and drop enough hints so that the majority will be able to figure
it out..

How very California of you ;-)

Thanks John. I am not too worried as I am using a board sponsor in your neck of the woods. I mentioned it to him already and he told me he would wait until tomorrow before getting me the paper work for my ED so he would know if there is anything better. Always good to double check though...

I only wish I had found this board and its sponsors sooner.

In NoVa & would like to work with board sponsors dealers but not sure how that work logistically in terms of the ordering, allocations, delivery.

Would appreciate it if some1 could chime in with some thoughts. Thanks!

Hopefully tomorrow will bring good news........... today is a busy day for all BMW centers/dealers as this is "month end" for us. Everyone will be trying to hit their objectives for Sept. set by BMW NA.

Well we were suppose to get our car on saturday according to our CA. Now she says its going to be Friday at the earliest. I'm irritated but at the same time interested to see what the october specials are. Hopefully it will work in our favor. We already have a credit union set up but the rate I was given was only a bit less than what I SHOULD have been offered from BMW. Our FI guy is a real piece of work though and was trying to double my rate when I have great credit. I want to walk in there knowing exactly what is available right now to protect myself.

Why did BMW make today the 'last day of the month' for the dealerships rather than yesterday? How would a buyer know?

If the last day of the month falls on a weekend, the following Monday is always the "month end" for BMW. Has always been that way- very predictable, just look at a calendar.

Well, the new programs have in fact been loaded on to the server, however, there is an obvious syntax error in the coding, and I can't download them...

Ok I've got them. Sorry I don't have time to post specific details this morning, but here is the gist (for Western Region Dealers):


PROGRAM UPDATES

*Lease residuals for the Model Year 2013 535/550 Sedans and GT models have been enhanced. In addition, a 39 month term for the 535 Sedans has been added.

*Lease money factors and retail finance rates have been reduced across the majority of the MY12 and MY13 vehicle line-up. This change offers great consumer savings...

*Lease rates and residuals for the 6 Series Gran Coupe have been enhanced.

*The Eco Credit debuts for Active Hybrid models. $3,500 is now available on the 3 Series variant while $4,500 is being offered on the 5 Series model. *Grin*

*Residuals improve for the X6.

THANK YOU
