S. FL: 2013 535i Price

I wanted a fully loaded 2013 535i.

This is what I wanted:
Metallic paint
Premium
Technology
M-Sport
Driver Assistance Pkg
Cold Weather Pkg
Premium hi-fi

According to bmwconfig.com, my MSRP is $65,470, with an invoice of $60,370. I figured $1000 over invoice for $61,370. The 535i has $2000 holiday cash, so that brings it down to $59,370. I also know MF .00125 and 55% residual for 39 month lease. Despite my better judgment, I am applying $3500 towards cap cost reduction for a total out of pocket of $5000. I see my monthly payments being $661 including 6% tax.

This was what their "amazing" deal was:
Jet Black (no metallic paint)
Premium
Technology
M-Sport
Sport Auto Trans
Park Distance

MSRP $62,400+ and this is where it started getting screwy...
Invoice for the dealer was 59400 (which I don't believe)
Bank Fee 925 (which should be 725)
Miscellaneous fees which I don't remember...

Regardless, he came up with some crazy monthly payment, which doesn't make any sense at first: $770+6% tax.
Payment went down after I pointed out the correct MF rate which was considerably higher (.00150), but still came out to $700 including tax.

To me that means getting less options for more money!!!


So here it comes... does anyone know a good dealer in the S. FL area that's not going to try this BS? Also, are my calculations correct for what I want? I don't need the car right away, so it can be ordered... Am I applying the numbers correctly and/or holiday cash promotion correctly?

Thank you everyone. Hope to get this deal squared away soon!

At 62 msrp, dealer invoice should be around 57.7.

It was Braman. South Motors had a better deal, but they were screwing me royally on my trade-in. Ft. Lauderdale was similar with South Motors. On the low end, on the 535 they were willing to do 750-1000 over invoice but I would lose 2500 on the trade in.

Braman finally compromised at 1000 over but they offered what I was looking for on the trade-in.

As far as dealing with them, I can't really say it was pleasant with any of them. Guy at South promised a deal that made me drive allllllll the way down south, just to tell me he can't do it, which obviously annoyed the crap out of me and made me leave after yelling at the guy for wasting my time.

None had the car I was looking for, so finally I decided to go with the lesser of all evils and ordered from Braman. They had a car about to start production that they were able to change. Delivery should be in December.

Let me know how your experience is like!!! And I wish you more luck than I had with these people.

Thank you!!! I got a little carried away (to the point where I'm debating just going for the 550...)

Imperial Blue
Oyster/Black
Anthracite Wood
Driver Assistance
Premium
M-Sport
Technology
Multi Contour seats
Heated Seats
Soft Close Doors
Sport Transmission

I'm talking maybe $30-40 more a month difference. The only thing holding me back is MPG. I drive 15000-18000, and I figured I'd need all the help I can get... I figured I'd get 15 mpg with the 550 and 25 with the 535...
