Drives: 09 335I COUPE ON ORDER

I had a 09 lexus IS350 on order.$40,000 car with $5,000 margin and dealership only gave me $500 off since I was ordering the sport handling package and they did not want to get stuck with it,their sales are down 35%.I drove a 335i and was sold and ordered 335i and cancelled lexus order.Dealership gave me $2300 off on a more expensive car with only about $4,000 margin vs the lexus with $5,000 margin.I use to feel BMW had a holier than thou , we are the only game in town,but it was the lexus dealership in CHARLOTTE that had this attitude and bmw treated me right and service dept.seems responsive to customer needs.335i may not be as reliable as the is350 but it is much more of a car and dealership earned my business.First bmw!
