Dealership needs nonrefundable deposit for this???
I'm thinking of ordering another M3 with one of the individual colors, and for some reason the dealer is telling me they need a $2,500 nonrefundable deposit to even ask BMW NA if they will make the car. Seems strange.
The dealership also told me they just tack on $5,000 to the price of the car and then "request" the color from BMW NA. If BMW NA says ok, the car gets produced (and the paint price would then be adjusted). Does this jive with what others have been told?
Why can't they just ask BMW NA if they will make the M3 in the individual color and get a price...maybe I'm missing something.
Any help on this would be great. Thanks as always.
