What should I offer?

Ok, so I've been looking at M3 Sedans for a few days now. I've finally decided it's what I want to get vs the M6. I'm gonna be purchasing used. The only problem is I've been having a tough time finding one to my liking within my price range. I've found on, though it's quite a bit above what I want to spend. But I can't find anything that interests me. So take a look at the link, and what would you offer on it?

The bid is currently at 49.5K on ebay with 4 days remaining LOL, that really doesn't say much, but just thought I'd throw it out there.

Also a question, when you guys say that you got the 2009 model at invoice, is that the MSRP minus all the options?

No - invoice is supposed to be the "cost" of the car to the dealership, which it usually isn't. Even if it were, the dealership gets money from other incentives, like volume incentives, financing, etc so even if you were to buy a car at "invoice", the dealership is still making money.

An example: the tech package's MSRP might be 3K, but the cost from BMW to the dealership is really like 2.4K. That applies to everything from the base price to every option/package.

So if someone says "I got a 2009 for invoice", they're saying the sticker was (example) $70K but the actual invoice (cost) was $62K so I got it for that".

To figure out what the real invoice is, there's a bunch of good sites like edmunds.com which can show you what the invoice is for each option that you want on your car.

Ok, thanks Jet. I'll give edmunds a visit, I see people paying 500 above invoice so I'm assuming they're getting real good deals...and the dealers are also making their money. But to answer my question MSRP and invoice are not the same thing. Thank you!

I was hoping to stay in the 53k range, but then again I also want DCT and 09 iDrive :/ and I'm having a hard time finding the color combo I want. I think I'm going to move on and try to find another one, I don't think I could deal with the grey seats.
