Ultimate driving Expereince

So there is this Ultimate Driving Experience in October where you test drive a 2 series and they give you an extra $1000 off a 2014 or 2015 car.

Question: I placed my order for my 2015 but it won't arrive until late October, do you think I can get the extra $1000 off on top of my deal even though I have a PO?

Do you think the dealer would honor it or say that it had to be written up when I placed the order?

I would definitely inquire. Not unusual to get a better lease payment if the rates have dropped since you ordered. Also it's not costing the dealer anything as the incentive is from BMW. It would also build good will with the customer, which may lead to another sale down the road.

Please let us know how you make out!

Yes, I emailed the sales person and he said he would ask but doesn't think that he could combine the 2 discounts(I have a fleet discount as well). BTW- I don't lease, I buy, it's a waste to spend all the money on "renting a car and giving it back", almost like renting an apartment vs buying. Plus I keep my cars for at 7+ years. I will keep you posted! Thanks!

I was not assuming that you were leasing...it was just an example about applying incentives after the initial paperwork...good luck

HAPPY-CHRISY I'm with you, I also buy my vehicles however there's no comparison in leasing & buying vs renting & owning a piece of property (we all know why).
We purchase these BMW's because we can afford them, because we love 'm and simply because they're indeed the Ultimate Driving Machine!

Good luck with yours.

I think (at lest in the past) there was language in the UDE description saying that orders placed prior to participation in the event do not qualify. But doesn't hurt to check

its a corporation discount, it varies from corp to corp. Could be a % off MSRP to even % over invoice price, it varies.
