It depends, does the buy price reflect any incentives? If price before incentives, I would say it is a very good price but not a steal.

Thanks for the timely pricing comments!! The $500 over invoice does not include any of the incentives as they will have already expired by the time I take delivery in January. Hopefully BMW will extend them. Any history to support same.

The current Holiday credit can be locked for (I believe) up to 60 days, certainly 30. You will need to submit a credit application to BMW Financial. I would recommend going through your dealer vs. the BMW website. If paying cash or financing through another institution, the Holiday credit wouldn't apply. However, loyalty and/or BMW Apps could be options. Search the "Ask a Dealer" forum for further info.

I just negotiated a deal for $3,250 below invoice inclusive of all incentives. $1,000 for corporate fleet discount and $2,250 of BMWFS incentives. Black/black, DCT, competition, premium, etc. MSRP around $76k, sell price around $67k. Giving me $40k for my silver/black '08 E93 6MT with 20k miles.

Have not pulled trigger yet but probably will. Seems to me like a pretty good deal.

Rob, that's an excellent deal. Congrats, should you move forward with the order.

Curious, why the switch from MT to DCT? Also, your existing car, Silverstone? Do you like it or just need a change?

Looking for a change to tranny, color and body style. Love Silverstone, just tired of silver/gray in general. I have gray A8 which doesn't help.

Also, did not have the top down as much as I thought I would. Of course getting all of the other updates (iDrive improvements, etc.), four years of warranty and competition package are other reasons.

I drove the DCT coupe today and I liked it quite a bit more than my MT convertible. Noticeable difference in how the coupe felt, which didn't surprise me. Much better than the SMG I had in my '07 M5. I was worried the DCT would be too boring but I was wrong.


So yeah, I'm going through with it. Hopefully get this wrapped up before the weekend.

Good to hear. I just agreed to a deal for a M3 coupe via PCD in May. I was back-n-forth on the MT vs. DCT but am leaning toward DCT. Color was the other touch decision. For me, it's between Silverstone and Interlagos. Just no black, dark grey, etc. Been there done that.

Congrats!

Hi,

I've read about fifty of these M3 posts today and I've learned a lot. Primarily that production of the V8 ended this month and dealer allocation is probably low. What would your strategy be to buy a 2013 now at a reasonable price? Also I have yet to figure out how you guys know what dealer invoice price is? I've seen reference to 91% or 93% of MSRP but I know I used to actually see invoices out here years ago didn't I? Where is this information available now? Sorry I singled you out but you seem knowledgeable and responsive on the topics you've commented on. Thanks for your help. Jane.

If you are looking for the coupe (i.e. e92), I don't think there is any open production allocations left (status 112 or lower), so ordering your M3 from the factory is probably out of question at the moment. The convertible's (i.e. e93) production will continue until September, so you may be able to find an allocation if you look hard enough.

But, there should still be a decent number of new M3s on BMW Center lots, but you may have to be flexible with the color and option configurations.

As for the invoice prices, try bmwconfig.com.

New M3

Received my E92 last Friday (6/21/2013).Alpine White, Comp and Premium Pkgs, DCT, Carbon Roof, mirrors, splitter, and grille.

It is so choice. I highly recommend, if you have the means, get one.

Thank you. Read a couple more hours throughout the site after I posted this and even looked at a few sponsors inventory on line (Greg Poland from Pacific BMW is very active on here). I'm not picky about color or options. I figure most of whatever dealer stock is left is the same white, black or silver and at least one optional package at a minimum. I have enjoyed all the reading. Lots of enthusiasts here for sure. Thanks for the help. Jane.

I agree with you and love your Ferris Bueller reference.

Be careful with your price negotiating on your new M3. They are becoming scarce, but there is no reason to pay list price just yet.

Wow, so this means there is not a surplus of new E92 ///M inventory out there. If anything the remaining unsold units averages to what <1 unit per state?

Indeed. We're getting to the very end, here. It's somewhat exciting, and sad, at the same time.
