Is $5K below INVOICE a good deal on a 2013 335i Coupe ?

Got a deal on a 2013 Space Gray, auto, M Sport, Premium, Premium audio, Nav, comfort access, heated seats and more.

MSRP is ~ $55K, Invoice is ~$51K. My price: $46.5K before a possible $750 loyalty incentive so maybe $45,750 or $5,250 below invoice for a 2013 with 40 miles on the odometer.. Seems too good to be true for a 2013 but it is legit.. I'm new to the BMW world so not sure how much dealers actually make from a sale... I've been looking for a girlfriend so maybe the sales manager likes her or something lol...

Is this a good deal?

Thanks

$1500 holiday credit on it as well, are you or she a recent college grad? another $1000. They probably factored those into the below invoice deal already. Even if they did still a good deal.

It's a good deal.
They are probably doing this because the new coupe will come out pretty soon.

Has the appearance of same.

To discover dealer's real cost, consult Consumers' Union car buying service. They have access to dealer incentive ammts, etc., on car & accessories.

Looks like clearance to me!

In 6 months we will have the new "4-series" F32 out so you will have last years model, or the old model E92 real quick. Clearance pricing for-sure Test drive the F30 as it should be similar to the upcoming 428i, 435i. then if you wait, you would have the current model for the next 7 years! That may be worth $5K.

thanks folks, I looked at the new f30 interior and did not like... the nav looks ridiculous though I am sure a lot of you think the same. I'm getting an even better deal too.

What a condescending comment after people here helped you, despite your ignorance regarding the difference in chassis and model year. If you really think you are getting a better deal than you certainly deserve what you get. Have fun in the E90 forum - it is laden with childish wit and backhanded compliments. Cheers.

Huh? I'm not sure how you came up with that... A girlfriend of mine was in a new 328i last week and she asked her friend who owned it what brand the navigation was because she literally thought it was a stand alone navigation unit that was stuck on top of the dash. I'm not kidding. Other than that I am sure it is a fine car.

The only reason I posted in here to start is because I thought all 3 series 2012 and later were all new, otherwise I would have posted over there (and I will). I didn't mean the 2013 335i I mentioned was a better deal than the upcoming one or the F30(though financially it is unless similar deals are available), I meant the price on my deal has improved since I first posted, hence the "I'm getting an even better deal too"... as in I'm getting an even better deal than previously stated...

Other than criticizing the navigation on the F30 I was nothing but polite and gracious here. Is being critical banned here? There was NOTHING condescending about anything I wrote, but since you apparently want to see that:

Ironically, you tell me to go to a different model forum because you think I/they are childish... HAHAHA, pot meet kettle. Though I disagree, I'd rather be childish than elitist. Seriously dude, if you think you're better than the people in the E90 forum then you've got some issues... Take that stick out of your a**...

That was intentional. I was getting you ready for the future since, like many people here, I drove an E90 for years. You can have the stick back now.

Well the 335i is not for me but for a girlfriend. I drive a G35 sedan MT and a GT-R... I wouldn't get a 335i in an auto anyway...

She's picking up the car today, and she talked them down to $43K so over $8K below invoice... I don't know how but I'm impressed. Perhaps these cars are way over-priced to begin with...? I'm thinking about seeing what they have in a manual or in an is or M3...

The BMW-est was angry that day, my friends.

He seems not to appreciate that 'childish wit' and 'backhanded compliments' are the basis of forum repartee!

Sharpen your mental pencil, sir....you have work to do....

All true, though I certainly do appreciate your proper use of commas and the absence of split infinitives in your post. Well done, sir.
