Its simply supply and demand. There are more potential buyers than there are cars being made, so why would they accept Invoice? IF you get something half way between invoice and sticker -- be happy with it.
And learn how to drive manual.
: I am in the market for a 1999 323i. A breakdown of the bimmer I want and the invoice price is as follows; Car w/ destination charge($24,100), automatic($1,140), 16" premium package($2,415), leather($1,235), and moonroof($895). Total invoice price for this car is $29,785. "People" say that from 3-5% over invoice is a good deal. I belive that I should only pay invoice($29,785).....heck....BMW is going to give the dealer 2.2% of the base MSRP(26,400). I think $580.00 is enough profit for the dealer don't you think?
: Also, does anyone know anythink about "tax liability". The salesman told me that he may be able to get closer to the invoice price if i buy the car before Dec. 31, 1998. Is this just sales bull?
: one more question. What is this "euro delivery" stuff that was spoke of briefly in future post. How does it work and would it get me a better price?
: Thanks to all that post................Validator
