Willing to do a Dealer to Dealer trade?

Any of you dealers out there willing to do a dealer trade with my local dealer (Kelly BMW in Columbus, Ohio)?

I am looking for the following vehicle...

2003 BMW 330i
- Black Sapphire exterior
- Black Leather interior
- Performance Package (ZHP)
- Aluminum Silver Cube Trim
- Xenon Headlights
- Power Glass Moonroof
- Heated Front Seats

My dealer has done a search in his region for this car, found a couple matches but the other dealers are unwilling to trade (or the car was sold). My current lease will terminate at the end of this month. I thought about ordering one, however I would be two months with out a car, so I would prefer a dealer trade if possible.

If you have a car matching these specs (or even close) please let me know. I would even be willing to pay shipping or whatever other costs are involved.

Thank you.

Thank you.


If your lease is with BMWFS you can order a car and do a two month lease extension.

Ted,

Actually I am terminating my lease early using http://www.swapalease.com . I am currently going through the Lease Assumption process with a guy willing to take over my lease. It looks like the process will be complete in the next week or two, which means I will be without a car real soon.

I was hoping to get out of my current lease and then finance a new ZHP, but finding a car with my exact specs is a little difficult.

If any of you guys could help me out PLEEEEZE, let me know. I would be forever !!

Thanks.

I'd love to help, m330, but all I have is Imola Red/Black Leather with Black cube, heated seats, zhp, moonroof and xenons. I also can trade for a sapphire/black leather zhp, xenon, alum cube, and moonroof, but no heated seats. Could be a possibility?

Sorry your dealer can't get the car...

Unfortunately, we can only trade for a car if we're the selling dealer. I hope you understand. Good luck.

Dealer Trades

I've got a similar problem. Looking for 325XI with Premium, Leather, Cold-Weather, and automatic in Steel Blue or Silver-Grey with either Grey or Tan Leather. This strike really messed things up. There is no inventory .. and the few dealers who have them don't want to trade with my dealer. I've found one 330XI similarly equipped, but don't want to spend what they are asking so close to the model year-end. It's kinda surprising to me that there is still enough demand on '03s this close to model year-end to support such high asking prices (Invoice + $1600).

Call the dealers down here in Cincinnati (or I can if you want). Probably no need to do a dealer trade as it would be a short trip both ways. Let me know if I can help.
