F10 550xi Invoice Price & ED Pricing

I am planning to place a Euro delivery order for a F10 550xi and have done some research on pricing. Below is what I came up with based on reading several posts.

Invoice-USA - $57,500
Invoice-ED - $53,172
BaseMSRP-USA - $62,500
BaseMSRP-ED - $58,175
-- Disclaimer - Above was what I arrived at and may not be enitirely correct

How I arrived at above figures:
- Got the Base MSRP for US Delivery & Euro Delivery from a BMW dealer ( $62.5K and $58K respectively )
- Got the US Invoice Price from Nada site ( link http://www.nadaguides.com/Cars/2011/...dard-Equipment )
- Based on this looks like there is a 8.6% difference between the US Invoice and US MSRP
- So I applied the 8.6% on the Euro Base MSRP and arrived at $53K Euro Invoice price

Does anyone have any thoughts on whether what I have arrived at is more or less correct?

So now I would like to make an offer to the dealer but don't want to be way off-base, so do you guys think if I offer $54K Base price for Euro Delivery of 550xi it should be a good starting point?

Appreciate your thoughts!

1) ED invoices are 14% lower than US invoices. you can potentially save around 11-12% over US invoice using ED, as opposed to 7% advertised by BMW. This should give you a rough estimate of ED invoice of 550Xi.

2) Before you start visiting dealer(s), read ED wiki @ bimmerfest.

3) Contact board sponsor dealers who knows ED well. You can buy/lease from any dealer in US unless you've a preference for a local dealer. I recommend Adrian Avila @ BMW of South Atlanta. He's straight forward and excellent.

4) If you're leasing, put multiple security deposits. It will save additional amount.

Best,

V

Thanks, typically how much over the invoice do dealers usually accept?

I was hoping to get different quotes from dealers but use the dealer closest to me ( assuming he is able to match it ). Are there other drawbacks of going with a dealer who has not done lot of ED - as long as he matches the best ED price does it matter?

As I am in NJ would prefer to work with any NJ dealers. In any case I will approach the BMW of South Atlanta that you referred for a quote. Thanks again for all the info.

1) Typically you want to add $500-1000 of dealer profit over invoice. I am not sure if they charge more for a 535 or 550

2) Mike Wendorff from BMW of Morristown is one of the board sponsors. I did not buy from him but you can try and compare with other quotes and see which one you like.

3) Do not forget to consider BMW tire/wheel insurance in case you order sports package/low-profile tires.

4) There is NO MACO or Training fee with ED. Remember!

5) Document fee varies but can't be an astronomical number, (<$300 reasonable).

I got an offer of $55.5K for the F10 550xi from a dealer and I got this pretty quick without much bargaining ( excited )

Btw, the dealer was referring to some $850 frieght fees which he said is on top of the invoice regardless of whether it is US or ED

$875 destination fee is applied to invoice for both ED & US deliveries.

Referring to #1, shouldn't ED invoice be 7% lower than US Invoice, 14% lower than US base MSRP?
