I got $3k rebate because I have USAA
Yesterday I went to pay for the 2013 E92 I ordered at the end of May. It is to be delivered on 8/31 at the PDC.
When I got there, my man Joern told me I was getting $3,000 off my total price because I have USAA insurance and there is some promotion going on. Mind you, this is on a deal where his dealership had already agreed to sell me the car (ordered, not a stock car) for $1,000 over the invoice price. So I got a domestic delivery M3 for $2K under invoice. Which really is some dumb luck. My karma must be getting better.
He told me you have to pay cash to get the $3,000 break. There is also a smaller rebate for non-cash customers ($1,000).
I don't know any details. I don't know if you are a "cash" customer when you borrow the money from a third party like your bank. I was writing a check out of savings but it's not like they asked me to prove it, like they do for mortgage downpayments.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but I don't know anything about how this deal works. So I won't be posting anything else in this thread. But I wanted to mention it, so USAA customers will know to ask their dealer reps, in case their dealer reps aren't as awesome as Joern Esser at Passport BMW in Maryland.
