BMW M3 cost/discount

hi,

im curious, i'm soon getting a job at a local BMW dealership. I haven't realy talked to them about it, but i was wondering if anyone knows, do employees get any discounts or dibs on new cars? I would love to get an Alpine White M3 when it comes out, so i was curious if anyone knew if employees get a discount and what it is. I would be trading in my 645. can someone please let me know, THANKS

from the talks that i've had with employees at my dealerships, it seems employees can't get their hands on an "in-demand" car using any employee benefits or discounts. they can't even get their hands on an e92 335i right now (despite the fact that they've been out for so long) because they're still relatively difficult to come by, and the demand for them is still palpable. the employees have to wait til the car falls out of demand, or purchase the car as a normal customer without any employee benefits.

i can't vouch for how accurate this may or may not be, i'm just passing along information shared with me from my dealership.

That's partially wrong, emplyees do get discounts on new vehicles. The 335i when it first came out was available for employee discount purchasing. The M3's, the E46 were offered at discount off the bat. The new E60 M5 and M6 were not offered off the bat, but are now!! the M3 will be the same, I assume within a year the employees will be able to purchase them at employee prices. I know because I work at the dealership I've already got my eyes on an Alpine white M3 fully loaded

If you are a top sale I am sure they can accomodate.

I'm #4 at my center and will be getting $500 over invoice. The porters at my store I'm sure would be afforded the discount seeing that they are also employees with the same perks. However, none have given a deposit so far.
