Red face Sign of the times and leasing deals

Now that no one really is buying cars due to economy, do you think i would be in better situation to get a better deal on a 335 convertible? i know its normally special order, but do you think due to economic situation, i could negotiate more ?

Also the recommended selling prices on edumuds,etc are probably high now given economy, right? for example it says normal sellign price of a BMW xxx dollars for example, but now though wouldnt that be too high given the fact that people are not buying as much?

Is BMW FS doing extra credit checks , requiring proof of income for long term customers? Just wondering because like everyone i am always worried that by the time my lease is due i could get laid off, who knows, i hope not, but you never kow. Been with BMWFS for 9 years now and have high credit score and think i will still be working but just wondering......just in case

anyway, thanks everyone for your help. I always find great information on this forum.

If you are worried about being laid off then why are you going to buy an expensive car. Do you have cash reserves for 1 year without a job? Your best bet right now is the used car market. The people that did buy cars now need to sell their fun cars and even downgrade after losing their jobs. It is crazy how cheap slightly used cars are now. I would start there and if you can't find what you are looking for then go to the dealer.

Isn't BMW actually increasing prices soon or already have?
