BMW Offers $5,000 Hidden Dealer Incentive on 5 Series
This is what they're doing with the 2009 BMW 5 Series and M5. There is now a $5,000 hidden dealer incentive on these models which means the dealer will get $5,000 from BMW if they sell you these models.
The dealer can choose to keep all the money, or, as in most cases, they will pass some or most of the incentive to the customer by lowering the purchase price.
In addition to the hidden incentive, BMW is offering 2.9% financing for 24 and 60 month loans on the 5 series and M5.
If you've been looking into buying a 2009 BMW 5 Series or M5, now is the perfect opportunity to get the best deal.
3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum MoneyThe key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted NetworkSelect the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).
Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirectTrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
