how do you get a discount off list price on a BMW 1 in the UK
A few days back I went to the main dealer and asked for PCP contract (no part-ex) and a discount of the list price. He gave me a total of £48 off, great but not enough, I asked for more but they refused even if I added some attentional optional extras, servicing and shine protection.
I tried another main dealer and they had all my details already in the computer and refused to discuss prices unless I was ready to put down the deposit of £500. Worse still I asked them to price my own car as part ex-change and they under valued it by £1000, VW offered 8250, Ford offered £8000 and Audi £8000 but BMW offered £7000ish but again he wasn't going to discuss this without the deposit first.
Out of interest webuyanycar offered £8360 for my car an Audi A3.
How much discount should I be looking to achieve on a BMW 118d sport standard spec no metallic paint? Anyone got any tips or tricks for getting the list price down?
