Woww thanks, I had the pricing references, but I never saw that thread.

Otherwise, I have to advise you walk, since your loyalty isn't getting you much and giving them everything. Invoice provides the dealer a fair profit, especially for these cars.
Also, I will be selling my current car on consignment and letting another dealer sell it for me for a fee. This will be a much higher value than a straight trade-in.
To sum up: Invoice is $55,905.00 for the E92. Add:
$875 destinantion charge
$1300 Gas Guzzler
$950 Non-extended leather
$64055.80 with 6% CT sales tax. Much less than what he's quoting you, but still $3K over your budget of $61K.
$64 is manageable, thanks for putting in my tax -- The tax is the killer, but it could be worse in other states I guess. The reason it was still higher than that was the addition of the alarm and BMW assist. Not sure how badly I need those (alarm *could* be handy on a $60k car lol).
I appreciate the advice. My entire thought process when going into this was based on the fact that I could find a 2010 and get it in the $50's. I didn't want a 2011 because I knew I would have to pay more than I was comfortable with. Those points are now pretty much mute. For sure, I may have to walk if I don't get my price. Thanks again though.
Thank god dealers are open today so I can do some talking!
