M3 in Stock. Do NOT buy from Shelly!! $90,000!!!

Call from a salesman I touted in the past. Mark Czikalla... $90,000 MSRP.
In other words, find yourself an honest, loyal dealer. Shelly isn't. They just lost me for life. Their M3 is on the ground, at the dealership.

I'm a past customer.... so supposed to get that "special" wink-wink price, only for you, only today... Didn't get that price, compounded with $25k over sticker? WTF?

That's seriously silly. Gotta love SoCal dealers. I think I'd be driving to another dealer.

I smell...

A brand new Porsche coming... Um.. wouldn't the lease be cheaper since the residuals are higher and the dealers whore them out worse than BMW?

Sounds like most SoCal an NoCal people need to go out of area. Doubt if the can pull that in like, Fresno. Good thinkg most on this forum locked in MSRP well in advance of release.

That sticker sure is funny! Think of how much someone will be bragging when they drive out of there saying they made an incredible deal by having them knock off $20K.

These markups aren't real. They are designed to make the average person paying 5k to 10k over not feel bad. I've seen it done at Concord BMW. SF BMW at least dosen't fake markups like that they just ask you to make them a offer but I belive they want something like 10k over or close.

My main man Bobby Light!!! $30000.00 markup thats horrible!!!! Yet Another situation where a dealer is trying to rape and gouge its customers. I can justify $5000.00 markup for newness factor but $30000.00 do they want your first born child too?

This must of been recent or they changed their minds. Thats the dealership I was at a week ago and they were only asking MSRP. But their on crack regardless. Neva been to a Valencia, CA dealership but I've alwayss heard their prices are actually cheaper or "normal" if you wanna call it that

Unfortunately, the "stealership" at Valencia will charge over sticker since i've hounded them for a few months for a spot on their waiting list. But everytime I try to talk to someone about a waiting list, they've insisted on a "market adjustment" that they can't put a no. on yet. I guess they're waiting for all the other "stealerships" to put up over msrp nos. for them to gauge what they will charge. I would have loved to give them my business but no way I am paying over sticker. Even reasoning with them that I will give them the service business of it since I'll be a local doesn't sway them for the over msrp game. Oh well... I guess I have to drive 2 hours to pickup my baby when it's ready

No one should be paying over MSRP, even to get a launch/demo car. This is a serious purchase and one that should be kept forever. Don't settle for something the dealer wants to sell you with crap you don't want; on top of charging you more. I've found 2 dealers in SoCal that will order your car for MSRP to your specs and another one that can be negotiated down to msrp if given the chance.

Unless you would rather pay $5k-$30 rather than wait 2 months, just order it, I'll even tell you what dealer to go to. Spend the extra money on the elusive //M floormats

new century has a 10k markup... CA said he could possibly get it down to 5k... thats still 5k more than i'm willing to pay... that and i saw the way the shop foreman and managers were driving all 3 of the cars they had, so i wouldnt even buy those at sticker... keep that in mind for those of you interested in any demo cars

Valencia BMW here is charging $10k over MSRP and he is saying that everyone else is $15k over... with me being a local, salesman said he might be able to get me a couple of grand off the over msrp.... yeah, right? at least they have a couple to fawn over while I'm waiting for mine

Hey Will... what's the waiting list look like? I know you're one of the few that sells at MSRP so I figured your list would be a mile long....

Right now I have one available production slot on the Coupe, and 5 available slots on the sedan.

These have production numbers ready to go
