2013 335i New Order $$

Any ideas on chances of paying below MSRP for an order on a new (2013) 335i and how much below?

oh boy. search is your friend!

you should not be starting at MSRP, start with invoice and work up. You should very easily get $500 to $1000 over with little hassle.

^Thanks....I figured I could pay below, but didn't know by how much and if that worked differently on an order (I've never actually ordered a new car from the factory). So what's a ballpark figure for the invoice on a 13' 335i sport?

I ordered a 335xi luxury for 335 over invoice (nice symmetry). Build is complete, but I'm stuck at port waiting for a ship.

If you finance through BMW...

You should be about $200-$350 under invoice as there is a $1000 rebate. While the actual price of the vehicle will be "above that" (in terms of the paperwork), they add the rebate at the bottom of the paperwork which will net you out below invoice (one of the those financial accounting things for those of us in states with sales tax.

I ordered my 328i xDrive (sport, technology, premium, cold weather, HK sound, BMW alarm) on 2/19 and when all was said and done came in 7.xx% off MSRP. Oddly enough, it finally went into production on 2/27 some 8 days later.

Good luck with the purchase.

Go to BMW Config and build your BMW as you wish. Start on the Config page and type in the model starting with the year (example 2013 335i xDrve). It will give you the MSRP and the Invoice amount. Before you buy, read comments in the Forum for the must have options. good luck!

If you finance through BMW... (one more helpful thing)

Almost forgot - here is my post from another thread on this subject:

POST DATE 2/20: "I ordered my 328i xDrive yesterday - Sport (Black Sapphire/Black w/red leather - brushed aluminium/red accent), Premium, Technology, Cold, HK Radio and Alarm packages - MSRP 51,220, Paper Invoice $47,075 (+$300 Advertising & $180 training - these are not negotiable items); Actual dealer invoice $47555. The math: $51,220 - $2925 (Discount) - $1000 (BMW Finance Incentive) = $47295 or $260 less than dealer invoice and essentially 7.7% off of MSRP.

Could I have squeezed a little harder? Yes. However, I am trading in a 2011 Dodge Ram Laramie (completely loaded) w/23k miles. KBB/Edmunds put "Excellent" condition trade value between $28-$29.5k (I bought the truck for $37.5k 2 years ago, MSRP was $49k - bought it at the right time), I received $30.6k so it is one end versus the other. All in all, very happy with the deal and even more excited about the BMW. I looked at the A4 (have had 3 prior) and the C300 4Matic Sport (wife has a 2011 ML350). While I liked things about the A4/C300 (prefer Audi steering and price, prefer overall stance of C300), the BMW, in terms of packages/toys/free maintenance and general driving experience, was by far the best value.

So there you have it on pricing and if you are in the New England area, I recommend BMW of Peabody (ask for John Cotter) - I spent time with several local dealers, including the one I bought the wife's ML from (they have a BMW franchise) and none could touch this pricing in terms of the combination of trade/price.

Now I will watch the production of the car on-line and follow it through until it hits the dealers lot. This will be a loooooooooooong 6-10 weeks for sure."

Thanks for the help! I'll try BMWConfig....didn't know about that. I've always just "built" new BMWs on the BMW North America website, so this will be something new to try.

It's harder to get more discounts on the 335i (especially the xdrive model)
It also depends on where you live. In the mid-west, the price of the 335i is crazy high (and the allocation is extremely low) . Most dealers would not go under $1500 over invoice. It's easier to get prices like 500/1000 over inovice if you live on either coasts.

I will say start you negotiation with $500 over invoice and try to contact as many dealers as possible.
You can try ED if you don't mind to take a trip to the place where all BMWs are born...

I live in Cincy.
Don't consider any Cincy/Dayton dealers. They are horrible, all of them.

Good luck!

How much is saved on a ED out of curiosity? Obviously the trip itself cost $$ (and part of it is the novelty of going to Germany)....but is it a considerable savings on the car?

It may or may not save money, depends on how much you spend on your trip.
The car itself, is around $3k cheaper (that's the sticker price, you can negotiate for much more savings)

If you don't mind driving a few hours, come down to Indianapolis Dreyer & Reinbold BMW North. Ask for Kevin. I've been dealing with them for years at $500 over invoice and no other markups. I could probably squeeze a couple more hundred off, but not worth the hassle for $5-10 bucks a month.

A good range is 5-6% off MSRP for a 335. That's what Edmunds TMVs show for the country. 328s should be higher off MSRP due to the volume.

Edmunds TMV is not really accurate IMO as far as the best deal you can get - it might be the average what ppl are paying. You should be able to negotiate down to +500 and then apply rebates. This really puts you in the 8-9% off MSRP. (even for the 335). Myself, I got 7.5% off.

Below Invoice on 2013 335

Just a heads up i just ordered a 2013 335I below invoice fully loaded if you need help let me know the MSRP and ill tell you the invoice price, you need to get quotes from a few dealers to get the ball rolling and they will compete with each other. my MSRP was 53870.00 and i got mine for 49570.00


Cheers!
