Drive Team USA Event Discount for Existing Order

Has anyone had any luck with getting your dealer to knock $1k off if you've already placed your order?

Do let us know what you find out. I'm gonna try to do that too. Scheduled a test drive date.

So I heard from BMW Corporate in North America and they told me that I qualify since the order was booked after April 17th. I got further clarification from my dealer, who is great btw, that I need to schedule a test drive prior to picking up my car when we do our paper work. So if my car is being picked up around May 30th I need to find a dealer where they have an event prior to May 30th. Which I have. So am all set

Existing order? Just to clarify, this is only for orders, and NOT certified pre-owned? What other, if any, discounts available to CPOs?

Heard back from my CA, he said they might be able to swing it if I delayed delivery until after my test drive. I said it wasn't worth it but that I'd like the dealership to give me some other consideration. We'll see.

I just sent an email to BMWUSA to try and get some clarification on this issue.

I had signed up for the drive event for a couple of months ago, but missed my appointment. I signed up again a couple of weeks ago, but my appointment won't be until July 13th, and I want to place my 2013 order at the end of this month or at the beginning of July.

I would be excellent if I can use the $1000 for my 2013 order.
But, as it being discussed, will there be a $1000 offer still, and will we be able to use that discount or cars ordered BEFORE we actually do the drive event and before our ordered cars come in.

This is my 3rd BMW and I would like to receive some incentive money for continuing to be a BMW customer.
Just seems the right thing to do.

What's the significance of April 17th? I ordered my car on the 12th of April. Will I not qualify? It won't be delivered until July.

Technically the offer started April 17th. However, don't worry - just contact your dealer and tell him that you have scheduled a drive for team USA event and will bring the $1000 discount voucher with you at the time of delivery. Get it in writing from him that he will honor it. Am sure that's the least he can do given your inconvenience. Good luck!
