I got them to agree to a 3.5% discount off 2009 MSRP up to a $500 cap on any increase in price over 2008.

Plus $350 of accessories.

If I understand that correctly, the most you'll pay is 3.5% off of (2008MSRP+$500)?

They can't expect the invoice price to go up too much then. Maybe this bodes well. I mean, if they were expecting the price to jump 5% or so then this costs them like $1000 or so.

Yes.

The sales manager said he will be taking a big chance by agreeing to that but I told him that I will be taking a big chance too with any increase.

He agreed.

I do not think the price will increase much if at all at the beginning of the 2009 run.

They just increased it in June 2008.

Even if they do it should be no more than 1% to 2%.

Still, on a $40,000 car (including options) that is an increase of $400 to $800.

The base price may increase but the options may not.

Eventhough, I'm capped at $500.

The base price will have to increase 1.43% for me to reach the $500 cap.

Any increase greater than that is an increase I will not pay.

Good for you. The 09 (BMW) Mini prices have been up for 2 weeks. Not sure what the holdup is for the BMW models.

Right, that was the mid-year option and delivery charge price increase. I am waiting, as are many others with production numbers, for the 09 model year prices. Some have predicted up to 3% MSRP price increases; all speculation of course. Now I wish I had ordered my 08 SGM.

Yeah, concern over price increases for '09, coupled with the dropping of SGM, is what pushed me over the edge to go with a '08 SGM Auto that was available with most of the options I wanted, instead of ordering an '09 MT with all the options I wanted.
