: My dealer gave me the rate of 7.4%.
BMWFS wouldn't approve me for enough money or at a competitive interest rate. I only wanted to borrow enough to pay for a bit less than 2/3 of the car (about 20k). Carfinance.com approved me in minutes for more $ than I asked for and at 6.99% (though that was a few months ago and their rate is higher now). Since they're part of NationsBank/BankAmerica/Bank of Borg, and my main checking account is with NationsBank, I can view my car loan in NationsBank Online over the net. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm pretty sure I can pay car loan payments over the net by just transfering money from checking/savings into carloan. If that weren't convenient enough, the office building I work in has a NationsBank on the first floor, so I paid my first payment in the lobby on the way out to lunch.
