Need 335xi coupe before 0.9% ends

Dealers, please message me if you have a 335xi coupe, AT, premium, sport package, 18" wheels and heated seats in black with beige interior you want to get rid of by July 31. Additional options considered, just need these at minimum.

As backup, if you have non-awd coupe please also message.

I am in Las Vegas and will consider dealers everywhere as it is the delivered price that matters. Estimates of shipping cost would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

OK, that didn't work.

How about 335 rwd with 19" wheels, same options, colors can be white/black/red with beige, or silver/black with red interior.

Thanks. in advance.

Davelv,
I could be wrong, but I don't believe this approach is going to be very productive.

I suggest you formalize your offer a a little more. Spec the car out, calculate the dealer cost. Figure out want color combinations would work and potentially some options you would be flexible on. Don't expect to find a 335xi configured exactly as you would build it to order in the next 5 days.

Then contact all your local dealers directly. Prefereably a person (internet sales may do) via email, fax, PM, given your time frame follow-up with a phone call. If it was me I'd include a target price $XXXX over dealer cost, be sure to indicate you are aware of available incentives. You will also increase your choices of vehicles, if you expand your search LA?, your might want to try PhillpeK (board sponsor). If do you search out of area be prepared to travel to the dealer to close the deal. Basically I suggesting a Rizzo method approach to this (do a search on Rizzo). If you can't travel, you had better find a CA in you area to work with (search available inventory) tomorrow or you are simply going to run out of time.

Most dealers (I know of one exception, not in your area) aren't trolling the board looking for customer leads. Bimmerfest members are looking for low margin sales. Just broadcasting I want to buy a XYZ BMW isn't likely to get a lot (if any) responses from dealers. If you want a good deal it is going to take a bit more work than simply strarting a thread on this forum.

Thanks for the advice. Already doing it that way, and thought I would try this too.
