x35d $4,500 eco credit?

Just a quick question for you all:

Lets say that the Confidential Wholesale Price is $47,105.

Am I understanding this correctly that the adjusted price would be:
($47,105 - $4,500) + dealer markup and delivery charges?

The dealer that I've gone with in the past is saying $1600 over. Is there also some "holiday incentive" that I'm hearing about?

From what I have read there is a 2500 holiday finance credit for the X5 30i and 48i but not for the 35d. I guess they figure the 4500 eco credit is enough incentive...

realistically it's probably more like:

($47,105 - $4,500 + $10-15,000 in options) + dealer markup and delivery charges?

Mine was about $8k under MSRP for a loaded 35d.

Ya... I realize the options can kill u... but they ARE self inflicted.
My dealer includes the options at the same price as the confidential prices... just marks up the base by $1,600.

+1 to NewGTGuy's post on pricing.

I suggest you negotiate pricing based upon invoice + dest + training + advertising and aim for $500-1000 over that amount based on, well, whatever those things are usually based upon. Then subtract the $4500 eco-credit.

Good plan, I got about $1,250 without much negotiating at my dealer of choice. I probably could have done better if I was in a bargaining mood. Also remember that BMW's do not automatically come with floor mats, but most dealers will throw them into the deal at no cost, either routinely (like mine), or if you use it as your final bargaining chip.
