Valencia BMW

If your looking for an M3, don't waste your time going to Valencia BMW. The GM was appalled that Long Beach BMW has the M3 at a discount. It took me 2 hours to get him to agree to match their offer on the vehicle cost but he wanted $51,000+ as the residual on a 36 month lease for a coupe. He's knucking futz. Long Beach here I come!!!

Can someone honestly please tell me why stealerships use this stall and delay tactic? Does it really work...

For the informed buyer (and the salesman should know one when he sees one), this tactic only creates anger and resentment. I know what I will pay...he knows what he will sell it for...so lets come quick resolution...and if the salesman knows that he can't sell at my price...just tell me....don't waste 2 hours of our time

Every single time they use this BS on me...I go somewhere else and get my price...

Stealerships....

Yes they suck. They are 5 minutes from my home and I no longer deal with them. The service department is a bigger joke. Long Beach BMW FTW. Ask for Will he will take care of you. It's worth the drive down the 405. After you buy car from Long Beach then Valencia BMW will call you to come back in. William Shaw

51k residual? that is AWESOME for a 36 month lease.

That means the car will be worth 51k after 3 years??? hahahaah. It's going to worth less than that in reality.

That would be a lease payment of 706.53 providing you have good credit, and assuming no cap reduction and an MSRP of 72k even..

Seems like a GREAT deal to me???

Hard to believe a 51k residual, thats crazy, like 20k over what your likely to get...

You think that a car that MSRP'd for 71k is going to still be worth 51k in 3 years????

NO WAY.

And of course, they tried to call me today to come on back in as they said the vehicle is at their sister dealership in Las Vegas but they won't take a trade off of their lot so I would have to go out to close the deal. So I asked them if they would ship the vehicle. Here's the kicker..."We can't ship it because the roads are going to be worked on by the Transportation Department. So I said, how am I going to drive it back then if I buy it...
long pause...mumbling...Let me talk to them and I will call you back was the response. Such Clowns!!!

I've had great luck with center bmw ordered a 09 dct coupe for 2300 off msrp, pm for the CA's name. He also quoted me 2500 off msrp on an ordered 08 dct coupe and sounded like you could negotiate more off! Deals are to be had in this economy so don't give up!

Valencia BMW....

They are Literally Retarded....avoid them.

I live 3 blocks away. Drove 80 miles to find a BMW M3 from my gal JR.
Still waiting on 2009 pricing...before I pull the trigger.

Valencia BMW doesn't know anything about cars....let alone BMW M3's or Yugo's.

Scared to take my BMW there for service.

Cheers,

NO! do not let them touch your car. I've had that experience, never again. I take my cars to Center BMW in Van Nuys. Great service dept. I live 5 minutes from them also.
