135i financial figures...

Just like a friend I am considering a 135i..

Figures he has been quoted are 2k deposit and 401 month over 48 months (8k miles per year)

I would however only do about 3k miles per year.

What do you guys think about this deal?

That is with 7% off list, the dealer won't move any more.

Dealer margin is 14 %

7 at the front and 7 at the back.

Aim for 8-9%

As the 135i is a new model (and sort after) your dealer will know you want it and play hard ball.
Best option is to shop it between two or three dealers.

If they think they are going to miss out to another BMW dealer they will offer you a better deal.

Make sure you include all the extras you want on the car, then work out the all up price before negotiating it down.

Be prepared, if one does give you a good deal to nail him on it.

See here: http://www.broadspeed.com/new_cars/BMW/1-Series

Suggests you can get 11% off an M135i.

As above advice, print out broadspeed quote and ask local dealer to match.

Lol and thanks iBeech, I'm glad I'm not alone on this. Let's now put this at the back of our minds and promise not to mention it again!

The 'Broadspeed' refers to the list price, and possible discounts for company or fleet discounts
If you are just a Citizen, they will not play ball for a one off sale, that's why it is best to play one dealer against the other to get your best deal.

When you add dealer delivery, taxes and any extras you may included (ALL THE EXTRAS YOU INCLUDED) it will be a different picture.


If you love the car, and are happy with it, just accept that you paid your price and it was an OK deal from the 'Stealer' (Dealer)

I always get annoyed when in the USA you see what you can buy a car for there, or as I read recently, if you are in the Military in Germany (M135i for $45,000).

They are half the price there when compared to Australia.

No use complaining, you eventually just want it and buy it and grumble later.

Err, no that's not how the Broadspeed thing works. I took the Broadspeed quote to my dealer and they matched it. I did that this time and I did it last time, with different dealers.

They matched the broadspeed price when I ordered, options offered at same discount too. I suppose it depends on the dealer, salesman and the day.

I'm just mildly miffed that the Broadspeed offer is notably better now then when I ordered, but that's just the way the cookie crumbles I guess.
