Dealer's Actual Cost = ( Invoice Price - Factory To Dealer Incentives - Factory Holdb

I found this formula on a New Car Buying Guide and I was wondering if anyone knows the Factory Dealer Incentives & Factory Holdback for 135i?

Thank you

No incentives no holdback.

You can get an additional $750 towards your lease though....

Or 2.9% financing.

That is currently...does this change or BMW never does holdback & Dealer incentives?

I know where to find BMW to Customer Incentives, but not BMW to Dealer Incentives

There might be a reason why you can't find BMW to Dealer incentives.

BMW to dealer incentives are known as trunk monkeys on this forum. That came from trunk money. There aren't any on the 135i now. BMW does not have a holdback system, they use customer satisfaction surveys instead. Edmunds has information about manufacturer to dealer incentives for all makes.

DVDA, sounds like you should be buying a GM product. You will be able to get a real nice deal there. You have a lot to learn if BMW is what you desire. Maybe you should start with a used BMW vehicle, maybe a 3 series from early 2000s like a 323i with about 90k on it. craigslist is your friend for that.

FYI, I'm not a dealer.

Wow BigPimp thanks for pointing out the obvious "I have a lot to learn." Why do you think im crusing the forums, reading car buying guides, looking up prices, finding out the dealer "extras" that try to scam you out of money? Its called doing my research and learning.

I am not an impluse buyer, I will do tons of research before stepping into a CA's office. If there is something I dont understand when I actually step into the showroom I will leave and return when I am certain.

If i learned anything from Law School it is to do research and be prepared for everything which is exactly what I am trying to do. But your reply with USELESS nonsense does not really help me further me knowledge.

Yeah yeah, blah blah, dork! Spend your 'lawyer money' and go buy a car already, quit wasting time, get a date or something tough guy. All this research BS just means you are afraid to overpay, cheapo! How about you get a recomended CA who won't bend you over too much and put you into the right car, at the right price. There, problem solved smooches! Otherwise, carry on with your research, don't forget to check Consumer Reports, smoochie!

I honestly don't see why you're being so hostile. He's asking reasonable questions about how the purchasing process works. There's nothing wrong with not wanting to be uninformed when negotiating.

DVDA, I think that one poster's comments are far from representative of B'fest. I commend you for doing your research. There ARE sales associates at BMW dealerships who will happily deal with you and be very upfront about incentives; just requires a little looking around.

Don't let the comments from one ASS@#$%# get you discouraged. 99% of the people here want or wanted the best deal possible. If you are looking for a car and have time to wait, do ED and get the best deal plus a little vacation out of it

People like you are the reason other enthusiasts frown upon BMW owners.

How old are you anyway? If you are anywhere close to the age of a person who works for a living, you would realize that most people work hard for their money. What is so wrong with spending it wisely?

Go take a simple math lesson or see a therapist and report back here. Both should offer some help in becoming socially acceptable.

Idiot.

Just a note: Generally, you need at least a post count of 100 before you employ sarcasm in these threads.

Except for Poly Sci, where a post count of 50 is required before you are even allowed on that board, but, once on, sarcasm is permitted from the first post. If, however, you fail to employ sarcasm (or irony, derision, or some form of acerbity) by the 20th posting, you can get kicked out.

Funny stuff in light of his rant accusing DVDA of being cheap.

I laughed harder at this post:

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...t=#post4147368

Of all the things to be concerned about when buying a used E60 M5 "Bigpimp" is most concerned about...fuel economy! Here's a newsflash genius, it has a V10 that drinks lots of gas.

Welcome DVDA, good to see another 1addict over this way.

Hi DVDA...your response made me smile. I don't know about you, but I got pretty used to people spouting useless nonsense in law school. Helping them actually craft an argument was such an amusing pasttime. In fact, I used to help defense attorneys do it when I was prosecuting.

I did the exact same thing you are doing now just a few weeks ago. There's some valuable info on this site and I got a GREAT deal. Too bad you aren't in Seattle. I'd hook you up with my CA! He was a class act!

Glad I could make you smile Divergirl...ask your CA if he will do free shipping to South Florida and we can talk lol :-)

Prosecutor eh? tough job, lot of respect for you. I grew up wanting to be a Deputy District Attorney but when I got to law school and came to shocking realization that I was AWFUL at Crim Law, Crim Pro and Con Law.

I ended up being the best at Torts, Civ Pro, Civ Trial & Products Liability...funny how things work out.

Hold back

There is hold back from BMW!!! it is a little more complicated then most manufacturers programs for two reasons 1st not all dealers qualify for the program but in general any large dealership will. 2nd it is based on sales by month so qualifying dealers might not get the full 3% but the vast majority do! It is entirely possible to get a dealer to sell a car just for their hold back or less.
