: if I understand you correctly, you are saying that instead of going to the dealer first, I could order a Euro delivery 328i for:
: 27,955 - base
: 1,000 - some option(invoice of sunroof(?))
: 570 - destination
: 29,525(+tax, title...)
: Who gets the profit on the sale? I would send the check to BMW in Germany?
: Could I really get this car at this price?
: Is this what you are saying??
: : Rolfe,
: : The prices you mention are MSRP prices only. I got a brochure that listed the discount off U.S. MSRP from BMW NA. I was talking about true dealer invoice prices (the price the dealer actually pays for the car). For example, the base price (MSRP) of a 328i is $33,400. The base "invoice" price of the same car is $29,725. The MSRP of the same car Euro Delivery would be $31,060 ($33,400 - $2340 discount), but the dealer would actually be paying $27,955 for it instead of the $29,725 they would pay for a US delivered car. Of course you would need to add the $570 destination charge and any options you want to these figures. Does this help?
