My brother-in-law was going to order an Alpine White/Black leather 335i sedan. He went and looked at the E90, decided he wanted one. The dealer told he could offer it at $1200 over invoice on a 3 year lease/10,000 miles year. He went home for the weekend and he did all the calculations using $1200 over invoice as the cost of the car and the BMW financial services money factor and residual. He came up with $504 per month. He was only adding premium package and heated seats. Well he went back to the dealer two days later, the same salesman came up with $640 payments with $1000 off msrp, way off his numbers. Salesman told him well "I am not going to sell the car for nothing" was sure he could sell the car to someone else and make more money. What an asshole! He told him he wanted to keep negotiating and the salesman told him "No way". This was at the BMW Store in Cincinnati. Anyways, does anybody recommend another dealer in the area that will actually negotiate a little.

If you brother-in-law is willing to buy from Columbus, Oh - he could go to Kelly BMW. Scott Lamp is the CA I purchased from and he was really fair.

That's typical for The BMW Store... They just aren't interested in cutting a skinny deal, unless it is a hard-to-move car. It's a great place, otherwise... Service, etc..

There is only one other dealer in town.. Jake Sweeney in the Tri-County area. I haven't noticed them being any cheaper, though they may be willing to negotiate longer..lol.

Kelly in Columbus or Voss in Dayton would probably be your next best choices... I've never heard of anyone getting a great deal from MAG in Columbus or FrankZ in Dayton.

I bought my 335i coupe from Jake Sweeney; made a better deal than BMW store but still inferior to many deals posted here. Both have a good reputation in service.
