evryday some one buys a car from me and spends just a little more (oftern only a hundred or two dollars more) because you cant cheap your self out of a sales person and dealership you can depend on. if ever there is a problem, can you get a loaner? will your sales person still be there or even care??
money cant buy the kind of serivce you SHOULD get when buying a new BMW. (or pre-loved for that matter)
sorry to ramble, just take this into consideration.. its not a RULE.
BMW doesnt have "Dealer money" or "holdback" the dealership gets paid on CSI which is a huge amount. As for MACO ED doesnt have it plus you get FREE carpet mats. The 135 is going to be hot so I wouldnt expect less than $500 off initially. Once supply is there they will be whored out by salesman who cant sell.
