Well here is the deal ... they are pushing the DCTs and the offer is only available with DCT. Cars come with EDC. There are not many cars left and the price you pay is based on the spec of the car. You are unlikely to pay the price quoted on the website as there will inevitably be some variation on the standard car spec quoted on the site. This is available on Personal Contract hire ... just add the VAT.

An example is as follows based on annual mileage of 12,000 miles a year.

Here is the car spec:

M3 Coupe Jerez Black, Bamboo Beige interior, DCT, EDC, 19" wheels, seat heating front, Anthracite wood trim, PDC, BMW ConnectDrive Assist, BMW ConnectDrive Online, Voice control, Bluetooth phone prep + telematics, Loudspeaker system - BMW Business, USB Interface, Exterior trim high gloss shadowline, sun protection glass, supaguard.

The total purchase price of the car above new is 59,015

The figures ...

Deposit: 2000
Admin Fee: 200

Initial payment: 879 inc VAT
41 monthly payments of 879 inc VAT

Total Cost over 42 months = 39,118

You hand back the car at the end.

What do people think??
Hi Hitman - I reckon you can push for a better deal than that - I have ordered an E90 M3 and switched from PCP to COntract Hire as it was cheaper with the current deals on offer.

I have ordered:

Alpine White with Red Leather
19" wheels
Bluetooth with telematics
BMW Connected drive online
Logic 7 sound
Sun protection glass
Heated front seats
Carbon Structure Leather trim
High Gloss Shadowline

This is on a 36month deal (3 + 35) & is quote a lot cheaper than what you have been quoted and 'stuck' with a compromised spec. I don't mean that badly, just that the chances of you choosing that exact combo of options is pretty slim, and there is bound to be one option you do want and one you don't. Only two options that are insisted upon by BMW are 19's and DCT so if you don't want either you are stuck!

PM me if you want any more details
