Is this price good for 2014 528i European Delivery?

Hi all,

Time to upgrade! Went to dealership this morning requesting price for new 2014 528i. Going to Germany with the Fam at the end of August. Options as follow:

Euro price: 46,085
Luxury Line: 2,100
Cold Weather: 950
Drivers Assistance: 1,800
Lighting Package: 1,900
Luxury Seating: 2,400
Premium Package: 2,600
Harmon Kardon: 875

Sales Subtotal: 56,459
Out the door with Tax, Title, and License: $61,566.12

What do you guys think? I was thinking this is pretty good, but always a great idea to hear the opinions of this excellent forum! Dealer explains he is doing $750 over Invoice.

Thank you for your input!

Please present this as $ dollars above Euro Delivery Wholesale. What dealer tells you may or may not be accurate.

Not sure what you mean. The price of the car is $46,085 Euro Delivery. I am under the impression that options are not discounted as part of European Delivery. Please correct me if I am wrong! Thanks! Also, Tax, Title, and License are in California.

Use this configurator with European Delivery option then add $500-1,000 to the invoice price. If you dealer balks at this pricing, there are several board sponsors in Cali that can help you out.

Great! Thank you Dunderhi! Is that a site that a dealership will honor? I mean, since its not officially from BMWNA?

It's not an official site, but if the dealer claims they are off by more than $5-10 here or there, they are blowing smoke. The dealer should be upfront and share all of the invoices prices with you. An ED negotiation should always be made off of ED invoice prices. Some dealers don't want to do it that way, but there are plenty that do. Check Jon Shafer or Greg Poland over in the Ask-a-Dealer forum area.

But their info is pretty darn accurate. Many of us used BMWConfig.com during shopping.

Search for Jon Shafer (BMW of Santa Barbara) or Greg Poland (Pacific BMW) - these board sponsors are known for their aggressive, no-nonsense deals.

I have punched the numbers and I have decided that he actually is giving me a good deal. Here is my reasoning:

His quoted price for the car: $56,459.00
His quoted out the door price (with CA tax, title, license): $61,566.12

My calculated price for the car (Invoice Euro Delivery): $58,498.75
My calculated price for the car (with CA tax, title, license): $63,725

I believe that he is selling me the car for 2,039.75 less than invoice (calculated by the difference between my calculated invoice price and his quoted price). Difference between out the door prices is even more significant at $2,158.88

Is my reasoning correct? Can anyone correct me if I'm wrong?

Sure love this forum!

When you configured your car, did you ensure the drop-down menu was on ED Invoice (and not standard USA delivery invoice)?

"I'm going to quote my customer $2k below invoice right off the bat," said no car dealer ever.

Yep! I made sure that my numbers were calculated completely off of ED Invoice prices. I know what you mean though, a dealer is going to make sure he gets as much possible for the vehicle which prompted me to get opinions since it seems like such an amazing deal! Any other feedback is much appreciated!

Thank you!!

Shoot me a direct email.... $750 over ED INVOICE is what I usually do.... Feel free to contact me directly for a personal confirmation. Always better to go invoice and up... try to not work discount off MSRP.
