However, none of this does the OP any good, since the 08s were loaded with multiple incentives (I believe it was the 3000, and now $7500 dealer incentives), that aren't available on the 09s right now. Also, not having DCT is the single most expensive option available.
It was BMW of Annapolis. And yes, the DCT at full price of that option would have taken it to $64.2K, but that too would have likely been discounted. I was non-negotiable on insisting upon 6MT, however, because I'm a die-hard, and I would have wanted an even bigger discount to have to "settle" for an automatic (DCT).
You're right, I think the phenomenal '08 deals were in March/April 09 at the peak of economic doom and gloom, and they're probably all gone now.
