: Does the Destination Charge include a dealer's true Dealer Prep costs?
As I say below, I had a dealer want to charge me $199 for prepping the car. NO other dealer in the state charges it, so in this case I believe it was bogus also. So, check with other local dealers, and see if they are charging it.
Just for reference, the dealer in TN that I am buying from is charging me for the Car, and the Taxes, and that is it. My price on the car, plus TTL (Tax, Title, and License).
So, there is no extra crap that a dealer HAS to charge in this region. Use this if some dealer tells you that "Every BMW Dealer in the US has to charge for this..."
