Purchasing Considerations

I'm in the final throws of buying my first BMW - and it will be an E92 M3-DCT. I was hoping for some advice on the questions that I should ask from the dealer. For example:

1. Free loan car when car is being serviced?
2. Limo service for airport (my friend has this with his 5-series..)?

Not sure what else to expect/ask for...

Can you guys and girls please help!...

Also - thoughts on colour/config - at this stage:

- Space Grey
- 19" Wheels
- High End Audio
- Black Leather
- DCT
- iPod/iPhone Connector
- Leather Protection
- Window tinting
- (Any other recommendations as far as options?)

Thanks for your help!

You're gunning for the same spec as my car.

Forget the leather protection.
Your options are exactly what I got (minus the black leather - mines fox red) which is more than enough unless the rear roller blinds have some significance to you.

I had EPP Pricing for my purchase (Corp Rates) which is about 5% off the price tag and 50% off dealer delivery.

You're in Brisbane so can't comment or recommend a dealer.
Thing you should know is that all new M3 purchases come with the BMW Car Club membership for 1 year and a M3 Driver training at your local race course.

You probably can negotiate inclusions or nibble on a few accessories. I got my iPhone connector thrown in.

Can I ask what you ended up getting the car for?

- What do you think about the fox red leather... I wasn't sure.

Always wanted a Space Grey with Fox Red interior since the E46.
Fox Red quired more maintenance than the Black for obvious reasons but I listened to the heart when it came to this car.

Mine's a Space Grey E90 M3 with black interior, carbon leather trim, 19" rims, sunroof, MDCT, M-Drive and EDC (last 2 std on E92 M3).

Though I live in WA, I bought the car from QLD. They're not interested in doing deals here - only one dealer in WA. PM me if you want a dealer to talk to in QLD.
