Dealer incentive/Trunk Money

Dealer told me I cannot combine Trunk money with april lease rate, can somebody confirm.

I applied to have the rate lock for april and get an approval. But dealer will not sell me the car with the incentives saying the BMW told them the trunk money only applies to May lease rate. Is the dealer telling me the truth? Also,

Since I only get an approval from one dealership, can I shop at another dealership and tell them that I already have a pre-approve application?

Current Option credit can not be combined with April rates.

Only the Center that locked the April rates for you can offer you last months rates.

You can shop at a different center but they can only offer you the current programs.

Any of the current programs cannot be applied to April programs.

If you want to take the current programs, be my guest.

All 3 Series have an automatic transmission option credit. It applies to vehicles in stock and inbound. It does not apply to ED orders.

JW BMW - what other incentives are out there, specifically on the X5 4.8? can an option credit for May be combined with a lock for April's #'s? should be two different things.

Premium pkg option credit for the X5s.

Can not combine April lease rates with May option credit pricing.

It sounds like the option credit has been extended for the month of May. Plus it now applies to P1 orders also?

When does this option credit end? End of May or some date in mid May?

For P1 orders, does the car need to arrive and taken delivery of to qualify for the credit?

How does an option credit work? Is it like a rebate that I apply for through BMWNA or is it just factored into the sale price of the car?

Thanxs for the help!

I could not answer your question because I did not understand the "July" part?

4/30 option credit is over.

This is a new incentive under the same name.

It is not a rebate to the customer. It is an incentive to the dealer. Meaning the dealer can choose to apply the entire, part of or none of the credit to the customer.

JW_BMW. Thanks for pointing it out my mistake. I was thinking about the April's incentive but wrote July. Totally see your confusion.

Thanxs for the explanations.

So for ordered vehicles (Priority 1), this option credit can be applied ONLY if the car arrives to the dealership and is taken delivery by myself by end end of May. Otherwise I'm out of luck, correct?

Is the option credit only available through a lease/finance deal through BMWFS?

Will cash deals qualify for this option credit?
