Thoughts on new 12 128i

So I kind of want to get one of the last real BMWs and was going to order a 13 128i. Dealer has almost exactly what I want in a 2012, which they're offering to me for $6k under invoice. It has 55 miles on it.

My question is:
1. Do I lose some exclusivity by not have a 2013
2. Are there any big differences between the 12 and 13
3. Any other thoughts?

Thanks!

$6k below invoice with only 55 miles on the odo sounds pretty amazing. I can't think of any compelling reason to go with a 2013 just for the sake of saying you have a 2013. Not sure if there are any differences between '12 & '13, though. Personally, I like to order my cars rather than buy off the lot, but if you can live with the build of the 2012, it sounds like a heck of a deal.

Then it's really not that great of a deal. Without going to BMWconfig to look at the actual numbers, I'm guessing if you ordered a 2013 at $500 over invoice you are probably getting $3,500 off of MSRP. Is it worth an extra $2,500 to not get exactly what you want and have a car that is already one year old from a depreciation standpoint? It also depends on how you want to keep it, but I would pass and order a 2013 and get exactly what you want....

Good luck.

Kind of what I'm thinking. Granted the only difference is that I want mineral gray and this one is space gray. Also I don't want nav and this one has nav.

I was planning to do euro delivery so the prices are about the same.

I imagine there's still more room to negotiate on the '12 though. Maybe another $2k.

Kbb on a used '12 with 100 miles on the odo is $33,700. CPO is $35,400. That's probably a good guide as to what it's worth. The fact that its new is meaningless. Maybe I should counter offer with that info.

Well I offered $34k. I think that's fair.

Can you guys tell me if it would have the newer nav interface? It has 609 nav and 615 online info.
