Thanks.

I assume this was done to protect those who graciously provided the invoice info to the masses?

From what I heard... some jerk-off car sales "fleet mgr" in the bay area made a complaint to BMWNA. Thanx to him, we took it off :rolleyes:

The dealer is nut. You can get the same info from MSN.com or other auto sites.
My point exactly... We did have the invoices posted here first, but everyone
knows that within a matter of days or weeks that info is all over the Internet
on sites like Edmund's, MSN, ...etc.

It would appear as though BMW Mountain View has a hard-on for informed,
price-savvy buyers. They just don't get it. You can sheer a sheep many
times, however, you can only slaughter it once.

You pay MSRP +/-, so why look at the invoice?

So one has a feel for how much profit the dealer is making on the car. I want to press a little for a good price and at the same time allow the dealer a reasonable profit. If one does not know the invoice price, there is no way to tell if the dealer is being forthcoming when the "I'm not making any money on this deal" conversation begins.

Invoice Price is Available Many Places

One easy source is Carsdirect.com. But remember the invoice price shown doesn't include additional advertising expenses that a dealer may incur. I'm uncertain if this is national or not.

By the way, you can do better than the price Carsdirect.com will sell for.

Thanks for letting us know the guilty party. I'm shopping for an E61 in the bay area so I'll be sure to stay away from them. :thumbdwn:
