Admin Fees

I am noticing some real variances in Admin Fees charged by my dealer. Last year I purchased a car and the admin was $249. With my 2008 M3 they are asking for $599. Both were purchases, not leases. Not very happy with this increase, especially give the number of cars I have bought from this dealership.

Refuse to pay and walk out. I've documented my recent experience around this here:

Thanks gentlemen. I am getting very frustrated about this. I have purchased 5 BMWs from this dealer in the past 5 years and they want a huge admin fee. Looks like time to go somewhere else. I thought my loyalty was worth more.

Thanks for the info. My Freight and PDI is $1995. By the way, did you get charged a Green Tax levy for fuel efficiency and if so, how much?
