Is 10% considered ok for a 09 M3 right now? Should I push for more?

I'm about to get an 09 M3 from the dealer, he's beeing bugging me about it all week and wants me to put down an offer. How much should I push for with the offer? 10%? 15? This is a fully loaded M3 white coupe (DCT, EDC, MDrive, Nav, Leather, etc etc).

Not sure what you mean by 10%? Is it brand new sitting on his lot. What is he asking?

It's brand new sitting on this lot. Keeping in mind these are CAD prices, the car totals to 105000 MSRP with taxes etc. I'm asking for 10% off (-10500) + 4000 cash incentive. So I'm offering 90000. Is this reasonable, or am I just being retarded?

Keeping in mind that this is a 09 car, which is basically 1 year old (I presume)

If I were you, I'd drive down to Buffalo and buy a 2010 M3 from the US side for $65k USD. Much cheaper.

If you can't follow Ultimate's advice, I would suggest you work up from invoice not down from MSRP. This is a leftover so while I don't know the market demand in Canada, I would think that close to invoice is more reasonable than anywhere near MSRP.

Not as easy as it sounds. Let alone the possible criminal charges OP could face.

Its very easy if you do the research and not a criminal offense if you pay all the duty and taxes. Especially with the current exchange rate. Figure you find a car you like in the USA for $65K add 13% for GST and PST, then another 6.1% duty and about another $1000 for some filing fees and to convert the car into Canadian spec. Exchange rate is only 2% difference now. Total would be almost exactly $80000 Canadian all said and done. Even if you buy the car for $80,000 Cdn and pay 13% tax you are at $90,000 which is 10k more.

They still make money off selling cars at invoice if they are a higher volume dealership. Also, most would suggest you negotiate upwards from invoice, not downwards from MSRP.

I bough mine at $250 over invoice. I consider that a great deal. I think it came out to about $5,000 off msrp. I also got 0 percent financing.
