BMW Offering a Whopping $17,500 Hidden Dealer Incentive
A hidden incentive, commonly referred to as factory-to-dealer cash, is a cash back incentive given to the dealer for each sale of that particular model.
The dealer is not obligated to pass the incentive on to the consumer, however, most do pass along most of it, especially if you use our Car Buying Method.
BMW is also currently offering a $15,000 hidden incentive on the 2010 6-Series.
For those looking to lease a BMW, there are special $0 down lease deals on the BMW 1-Series ($449 - $569/month), the 3-Series ($479 - $769/month), and the Z4 ($609 - $839/month).
Normally, BMW doesn't offer cash-back rebates, but they're even throwing that into the mix now.
You can get up to $3,500 in rebates on the 2011 BMW 335d, up to $7,500 on the BMW 750i/750Li ActiveHybrid, and up to $4,500 on the X6 ActiveHybrid.
All of these incentives are good through the end of February.
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.
