Is it possibly to order or buy an M3 with few options?

I'm interested in buying the M3, but don't really have much interest in most or any of the options. Will dealers sell allocations for cars that have nothing but the base car? And are they likely to negotiate on price for such a configuration?

Thanks for any suggestions

I got mine from dealer stock with no options. Of course, it had sat on the lot for 6 months waiting for the perfect owner. :-)

Auto - Nawaaz pretty much got his stripped of all options... I think he ordered it though.

Yup, zenderm3 is right. I ordered mine stripped of every option except anti-theft alarm and IB metallic paint. I got it for $56k out the door.

Moritz BMW in Arlington, TX has a m3 sedan with little options. One member on here was offered $60k out the door from that dealership.

Also, there's another very low optioned m3 coupe at BMW of dallas. They were willing to give me around $61-62k out the door for it.

any questions, please PM me..

I didn't order mine and this is what my 08 E90 has:

-Premium Package
-BMW Assist
-SAT Radio

I think that is pretty stripped down. $54k + tax/lic

I'll answer your two questions based on personal experience in ordering BMWs in Florida.

1. A qualified YES since some client advisors (CA's) would rather push you into a car that is either on the lot or one that they can get for "about the same price." The relative glut or scarcity of allocations will factor into a dealership's willingness or not to order your car. In the instances when I ordered a car it was due to a particular desire to have options XYZ with ABC paint, interior leather and trim.

2. I suppose you can also get the dealership to come down on the price of ordered vehicle. You should not expect much if you order a stripper, but if times are lean and the dealership has allocations that it is going to have trouble "burning", you never know until you probe.

As an aside: It is really nice to have made arrangements to have a pro go to the dealership to install clear bra film to have that paint protection from the first mile. Dealerships will work out the logistics with you and whomever you want to have do the work.

Good luck all the same.

Give David at Russell BMW a call. Www.bmwsonline.com. He will order whatever you want at INVOICE. Great guy to deal with. I just bought an msport 335 coupe at invoice. Keep in mind I'm in Texas and he is in Maryland. The car was delivered to me exactly 6 weeks after I ordered.
