BMW Offers "Hidden" Deals for March and April

March 11, 2010

Luxury makers pride themselves on appealing to buyers who are willing to pay a premium for a quality automobile, but unfortunately the financial crunch hasn't been kind to BMW.

That may be good news for car shoppers considering a less expensive, upmarket vehicle but would really prefer a German car. The automaker is offering a variety of incentives, though they aren't making waves about it.

For example, if you can afford a 24-month loan on a BMW 128i, 135i, or 335i coupe, you can expect an APR of 0.9 percent plus between $1,500 and $2,500 cash back. Monthly lease payments for the three range between $339 and $419, depending on options and model.

Higher end BMWs are also getting a healthy bump from the manufacturer to promote sales. The 550i is eligible for $2,500 cash back and a 2.9% APR. But savvy buyers can also take advantage of knowing that dealers will make $6,000 on each sale during negotiations.

The 650i coupe is another BMW that may offer potential buyers room to negotiate. $10,000 in dealer cash could provide a great starting point for haggling, and the 2.9% APR rate is good for up to five years.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
