Ordered! 2013 128 Coupe

Same car as I have now in a (not very) different color.

Mineral Grey Metallic
Black leather
Anthracite wood trim
Manual transmission
M-Sport package
Premium package
Cold weather package
Lighting package
Harman Kardon stereo
Bluetooth with BMW assist
MSRP = $41,620
Paying $38,706 (invoice + $500)

My son is buying my current car.

I have never, ever been so satisfied with a car. And certainly not enough to get the same one again. The impetus is the last chance to get the NA in-line six and hydraulic steering. It should be easier to wait this time as I already have the car I'm waiting for.

Nice! Congratulations!

I have an appointment for my battery cable recall on the 25th; I plan to meet with my sales associate then. We will see....

I'm definitely getting M-Sport, and a stick. Premium, possibly. H/K, not too likely. I don't want to pay for BMW Assist, as I don't even own a smartphone. Heated seats, but not the whole package (will not be driven in winter).

As you put it, it should be easier this time around. When I placed my first 128 order, I was driving around in my (nowadays winter-beater) Ford Focus. At least I am driving what I will be getting.

I emailed my preferred dealer with the exact build I wanted and the price I wanted to pay (thanks to the internetz). It's a cash purchase, no trade, but I'll check financing deals when it's time to pick up the car.

I was prepared to check at least two other dealers but got an answer within a couple of hours. I was very cordial in the email, no pressure. My plan was not to negotiate just to email the next dealer, but I never had to. My biggest problem is that I've been without a Bimmer for two years so no $750 loyalty bonus. (Almost a deal breaker on general principles.)

I also asked for, and got, a commitment for 20% off BMW parts and labor installed prior to delivery. I figure this makes my out-of-pocket cost about the same as buying online and having it installed by my "off warranty" garage, but there's no question about voiding the factory warranty.

Yes, I did see the invoice and I have a copy. But I know the customer version of the invoice has dealer holdbacks and incentives that the customer usually doesn't see. (Even when the dealer says he's not making any money, he is.)

All in all it seems like a fair arms-length transaction for the build I want.

I am thinking of pulling the trigger and ordering an instant-classic. What I am thinking is trying to do Euro-Delivery on a 128i.
Almost like yours, but...

Carbon Black Metallic
Oyster leather
Anthracite wood trim
Manual transmission
M-Sport package
Premium package
Cold weather package
Lighting package
Harman Kardon stereo
Bluetooth with BMW assist
MSRP = $41,650

With Euro-delivery I was thinking somewhere around $36-37k. What do you guys think?

You could get that setup for 37K via ED, but you don't have a lot of time! I'd contact someone asap.

Does anyone have concrete info when BMW will stop taking orders for the '13 128i? I need to order one with just the M Sport package.

My SA told me today that Sept will be the last production.

I wonder which one will be dropped off first, 1's or 3 coupe... Maybe both will be replaced by 2's and 4's respectively at the same time.

The 4's are supposed to come out about 3 months before the 2's as I think the 4's arrive at dealers this fall, but 2's won't start showing up til december or early 2014.

Wonder how much those remaining 3-series coupes on lots will be discounted then.

I admit that I did not know that the current 3 coupes are still E92 until very recently. Snatching a "left-over" 328i Coupe at the very last moment could have been another option to have a last NA I-6 BMW, although it would be very tricky.
