\Dont worry about "giving the dealer a chance to beat BMW FS" because that doesnt exist as a thing anymore. The dealer can offer you the same price as BMW FS, and thats it.

Why are you "going in to negotiate an X1 on thursday"?

Why not "negotiate on the X1 over email with a phone call to firm up final discussions"? If the dealer is telling you that you "have" to...

The above part I bolded is why they are pushing you to come in (in addition to trying to sell you a new car). IF you choose to "move to a different make" they will have to take the car back in (lease...

Tesla has a recent history of reducing pricing right after (within a month) of a tax credit reduction threshhold, so I would expect that, sometime in January, most teslas other than the base model 3...

When you place the order, you get a 60 day lock (90 on the west coast) for both lockable incentives, and interest rate / money factor.

Jon or Greg would likely be your best, easiest way to go.

You would have to ask, but I dont think the surcharge to the dealer would be avoided by them by the simple act of taking the car into inventory then letting the original person buy it.
