Ok I did it, picking it up this weekend :)

Wasn't planning to buy one last night, but the sales told me to come in and have a talk, so I did. We just kept chatting and I just thought I might as well buy now and enjoy whatever is left before the winter comes, especially when I can take advantage of this opportunity. The dealer is trying to get rid of this last 09 M3 car.

So I got M3 white coupe with, Executive, MDrive, 19'', High gloss shadow, DCT. Total comes to exactly 100k after tax and fees. Traded in my car for 15k, got a 11k discount and a 4k cash incentive. So 70k cash upfront. I think I did pretty well there, but who knows.

Picking it up this weekend, hopefully the weather is good. Now I have to start thinking about winter tires, dealer tried to sell me for 3900 (18'') not sure if I want to go aftermarket.

Congrats, well done on the discount granted and then some. Enjoy the ride.

For winter tires & rims package deal, maybe you can give Jeremy Shelton a call (Open Road Newmarket-Parts dept) and perhaps, he will offer you a deal.

Note: Each BMW dealership will sell the winter tire/rim package at different prices, therefore, it pays to shop around (if getting the OEM rims).

Wow! How did you manage to score the 11k discount? As far as I know, there's only the $4k cash incentive on the M3, and around $8k in dealer margin...

actually I just learned about this too 5 min ago from this thread http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=299031

Pretty sure they ripped me off for the trade-in for at least 3-4k so I guess they were aiming at break even. Which makes sense because in just a couple of months, they'll be selling a 09 car in 2010 and probably lose a lot of money.

The preferred dealerships in this forum are Durham, Parkview & Downtown Toronto. The worst are Maranello, Autohaus, T&C.

Great combo, just like mine

A lot of people go with fox Red on AW, which is also a great combo. But nothing beats the classic White & Black

Cant wait for pictures
