Buying BMW from a dealership?

Dealership add on fees?!?

Hi all, I'm in Canada if that's relevant. I'm buying my first car from a dealership and about to pick up a 2016 CPO BMW tomorrow and would like some advice. On my "offer to finance" sheet I looked to see dealer added options and saw one charge for "safety & security package" and another for "vehicle return coverage". I'm not sure if these are mandatory but I don't believe so. I did sign the offer to finance the letter and left a $1000 deposit and will put down the rest tomorrow and sign the bill of sale. My question is it too late for me to negotiate these two fees if they're not mandatory? Assuming they're not. Any advice helps thanks.

Anything is negotiable, particularly before delivery. I would think you could discuss it with your dealer and decide if this is coverage you want to have and if not, ask them to remove it. Right now I suspect that they would be anxious for any sale and would want to accommodate you if you want to delete that coverage. I don't know where you are in Canada but I don't think people are lining up to buy BMW's anywhere here. There weren't many people at the dealership earlier this week when I took the car in for service. Good luck.
