I was fortunate enough to be in a position to pay cash for my '96 Z3. They did everything they could to talk me into financing. They did offer free scheduled maintenance if I would finance for a minimum of three months in the Owner's Chioce financing program. I told them I would finance for the minimum and then pay it off for the maintenance program. ( Now the scheduled stuff comes as part of the deal. It was not that way in '96). The three month loan cost me about $350.00 in interest, but I should recover that with the scheduled maint.
Remember, they make money not only on the sale of the car but also on the loan.
