The best incentives/residuals are always December (end of year), followed by March (end of Q1). Just wait!

Ordered my car October 1 for delivery in December, worked out really well.

December 2013 had a $1250 Holiday credit, but every year is different.

So if I order October 1st and do an un4gettable event sometime in October, when I take delivery on dec 1st-3rd I will be able to use the $1k un4 and possible $1+holiday credit?

Thanks, but was just informed that I can't do the PIA program for my ED 435i Cabrio and will mostly likely not do a PCD redelivery so the dealership can install the M Performance Parts (0Z06, 0Z10, 0Z24, 0Z4A, 0Z5T, 0Z6W) The X5 PCD is still on at the PCD

Ordered 10/1, rolled off assembly line in Regensburg on 10/15. Arrived Port Hueneme 11/15, delivered 12/3.

I recalculated my lease every month between order and delivery, so I have the info from last year:

September 2013: No incentives
October and November 2013: $750
December 2013: $1250

There was a real big push at the end of the year by BMW to beat MB in US sales, so that's probably where the jump came from.

You need to attend the un4gettable drive before you order or the credit won't apply. I believe this is one of the stipulations in fine print on your coupon code.

You could do the event in Oct, then wait until Dec to pick up something from the lot. You will then be able to stack up the Dec. credits along with the un4gettable credit. Of course, the drawback is that you have to get something available on the dealers lot, which may not be the same optioned car as if you had ordered.

In regards to the current $500 credit for Sept...You could get a 2014 on the lot and take advantage of the much bigger innovation credit on the 2014s. Also, do note that if you get the un4gettable credit in Sept, your total credits would be 500(innovation)+1000(un4gettable)=1500. This may be around what would be available in Dec, but who knows what the credits will look like in Dec. May be less, may be more.

It is listed on bmwusa.com:
"$750 Innovations Credit available on BMW 428i Gran Coupe models. All Credits valid through September 30, 2014. Credits may be combined with other offers unless otherwise stated. Visit your authorized BMW center for important details. "

Sure, you can get that credit if you take delivery of the car in September. Did you lock in any rates in July? If so, you take either incentives from July or the ones in September.

If time is not a concern for you, ordering in Nov/Dec would probably yield you the most credits/incentives. However, that means you won't get your car until at least Jan-Mar, depending on when you place your order.

Why not do the M Performance part upgrade at port so it is added to the sticker and considered part of the car (insurance purposes and not considered after market). Plus it's cheaper at port
