Best Deal on M135 in Melbourne

Hi All,

Current owner of MY009 Audi S3 and hoping to soon get in the BMW M135.
Can anyone suggest a dealership in Melbourne that will do a good deal?

I've heard 15% off RRP is achievable? Is this a pipe dream or there is a truth to it?

Any advice/help would be much appreciated.

Cheers
Vlad

M135 - Hatch
8SP
Mineral Grey
Smartphone Interface
DAB Tuner
Nav Business
Park Dist Fr and Rear

To be honest, I am fairly happy with the standard specs, just few things extra.
Any chance you could let me know how much did you pay drive away?
(welcome to pm me if you don't want to post)

Thanks

Whatever you do, go for the HK system. I'm not aware of the price of it in Oz but unless your not at all into music you will regret it if you don't.

Nav comes standard on all new 1ers from 1st June

That should save you a few dollars

According to carsales.com.au under the July build it is a dearer option on the M135 anyway (professional now 3500) - most of the options seem to be updated slightly higher in price.

No change yet on he other F20 series - they could be incorrect as EB seems to be a NCO

NAV is still listed as an option on BMW site.
Can you please confirm your source?

I have just been going though ordering a 125i and was informed that Business Nav and Auto were standard for July builds on, but the list price is increasing slightly. But the BMW website and even their internal pricing system don't show this yet, so coming up with a quote last weekend was interesting.

Sounds a bit annoying. I don't like it when they limit our choices as customers. I am sure some buyers would prefer manual gears and no navi, like me! :-)

I was told you can still get Manual but it will still cost the same as the Auto. So still an option but annoying because the Manual should really cost less as it will have less resale value and surely costs BMW less.

If almost all the cars sold have automatic gearboxes, the resale value of the only manual version on the market could actually be higher.

It really depends in the potential buyer market - from a trade in perspective, manual 135i coupes get bugger all as the dealer struggles to move them on.

But there are always some buyers who only want a manual, and they will push the price up if the model becomes very rare.

It also depends a bit on the age of the vehicle. Those in market for a newish car will often prefer automatic and lots of gadgets. The last owner of the car when it is getting old, will often prefer a bit more simplicity and reliability. So if you buy the car to keep it for a long time before selling it, manual gears makes more sense.

Could be wrong, but I would assume BMW has moved pricing closer to what people are actually willing to pay. For current owners that were able to get a reasonable discount, doubt the end result has changed much..

Does anyone know what build date launch control and touch controller become available?
