    Shout out to Bluediesel for the heads up on MSDs being back on the West Coast. Spoke with my SA today and per him, he pretty much said it's up to the dealership if they're going to honor it, but they are in fact back for the time being. Going to be utilizing this for myself for recently...

    My 2014 BMW 3 series lease ends in October. I have positive equity on it because of so few miles. Shift.com offered me about $3000 more than my lease buyout price. I also made a $3200 prepayment (the kind they refund you at the end of the lease, I think that is what it is called). I don't...

    Hi, my friend ran into a problem purchasing a CPO X1 yesterday i the SF Bay Area. He wanted to go through BMW Financing, but was told by the dealer that he would be rejected because of his F1 Visa status - that BMW Finance rejects anyone with F1 Visas. Is this true? It doesn't seem to be an...
  7. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    Hi guys, so I've had my 2015 328d for almost a month now and love it. I flew from Boston to Atlanta to purchase it (great deal with options I wanted and didn't want to wait for 2016 order). Anyway, I've set my account up online with BMW Financial and I have setup autopay. My first payment is...

    Hi Guys, exciting times for me as I am planning to buy my first Bimmer! This is also my first post here so I really appreciate your time and patience :) I have found a lot of great material on this thread and I cannot say how thankful I am reading all the information. My desired Bimmer: 428i...
  9. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    Hi all! So I am looking to order the 228i I have been looking at for months. My first question is should I wait to order it in October to take delivery in December? From what I read on the forums the best time to get a BMW is between November and January so I assume you want to take delivery...
  10. F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
    I have a local dealer selling a 2014 M235i that was used by the owner and has just over 5,500 miles. I test drove it today and loved it but had some questions on getting the right price on this model. They are selling it as "New" but was used for a few months and has milage on it. The original...
  11. European Delivery
    I know Penfed auto loan can be used to finance the car for ED. Has anyone tried their car buying services for European Delivery? The car buying service rates are better than the regular auto loan. Is it doable?
  12. Ask-A-BMW-Dealer
    I need to make a quick decision on how to purchase my new BMW and are looking for some help/pointers. One of the driving factors is that I want to keep my payments low so that I can keep my debt-to-income ratio low in order to have the most flexibility (i.e. biggest purchasing power) when...
  13. General BMW Questions
    I'm considering a lease on a new BMW. Its my understanding that financing is basically investing in a depreciating item, so I'm leaning toward a lease. I went to a BMW dealership and needed bout 15K down to achieve comfortable payments. The lease quotes I've received seem a lot better, but...
  14. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hi all, I'll be on the market for an X3 soon and I just had some random questions I'd like answered. My family has a history of BMW ownership, and this will be my first time owning a BMW. 1. What is the estimated cost and/or intervals of maintenance on your X3? This includes oil changes...
  15. X1 E84 (2011 - 2015)
    Hello All, I have following requirements : 1: I want to buy BMW 2: My budget is under 40k USD. 3: I have no preference of new car over old one. I am open for new as well as old cars. With these 3 restrictions, I am thinking of ordering X1. (You can suggest me other options as well.) I need to...
  16. European Delivery
    I've read the great ED Wiki. Props to all contributors! I'm now convinced that a 328 xDrive wagon is the way to go, with the following options (I live in the snowy/cold Northeast US): -- Auto tranny -- Heated front seats and steering wheel -- Navigation system (spoiled by having one in...

    I'm a new buyer looking to buy my first BMW! I'd like to build to order my 335 and also take advantage of the current BMWFS finance rate of 0.9%. Is it possible to order tomorrow and lock in the current finance rates? I spoke to sales guys in 2 dealers (in Bay Area, CA) and I'm getting...
  18. Ask-A-BMW-Dealer
    Hey, I'm looking to lease either a 335i with M-sport, Premium, and Navi OR a 335is Coupe with Premium (both manual transmission) I'm wondering if anybody can estimate (just roughly) the approximate lease prices for these, assuming best credit and a 36 month lease, 10k miles. Also, would...
  19. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    I'm looking at either the 2009 328i or ordering a 2010 and I can't decide what to do. No one has the 2009 with the options I'm looking for in California. Couple questions that may help my search. Thank you in advance! :) - If you have the Navigation system do you need park distance control...

    I have recently returned a 530i purchased under a full circle finance arrangement. When the car was returned the dealer even commented how well the car had been cared for (over 4 years) compared to some that they see returned. Now I have been hit for a bill of over $500 to have 'front bumpuer...
