Greg, Dude...Pricing of ALL goods goes up, its called inflation. Furthermore, to complicate the matter, you must also factor-in the decline of dollar (vs. Euro). As all international corporations, BMW does have (to a certain extend) hedged currency future contracts to minimize their loss to currency fluctuation. However.... Do to the fact that BMW hasn't had a major price increase in the last 3 yrs, its a safe bet that they are going w/ a "steady increase" strategy. So in short, I am almost CERTAIN that the pricing of the car will go up in the fall.Greg220 said:If I may ask... Why do you expect the price to change in the fall? Would it be up or down?
So in short, when BMW proceed w/ the price hike this fall, your dealer's cost (aka COGS) goes up and thus your price will go up. Seems pretty fair to me as he agreed to sell the car to you at XXXX above his cost. His profit margin is fixed, he is only passing to you what his coast is, so why would you think it should be fixed??!! :dunno:
Hope this helps,
