In-Stock cars get better discount?

Comparing with building your own car and having it manufactured and delivered, buying an in-stock car can get better discount?
This is the impression I got after visiting several dealers last weekend. Am I right?

With many dealers yes. They want to move what is on the ground. I often buy in stock cars, but have ordered them too. I will only order if the dealer is willing to give me the same deal or close to it for an ordered car. You might want to go with a fest sponsor to get the best deal.

Thank you!
the in-stock cars always have the stuffs that we don't care. for example, we want park distance assist on a X3 35i, but it can only be found on a x3 with tons of packages in their stock.

By the way, why the fest sponsor is more willing to give discounts ? and do I need to register somewhere?

You are in Atlanta. Call Adrian Avila at BMW of South Atlanta. He is a well known fest sponsor and a good friend of mine. He will take good care of you. His info is in the site sponsors header.

Thank you! This is one of the two dealers that I haven't been to. So I will just mention your name Alphine?

Happy thanks giving!

Would he be straightforward enough? for example, tell me the invoice price and basic money factor with 7 MSD?


We are going tomorrow.
