Local Dealer Has New Leftover '08 M3 Sedan Silver/Red!

I went by my dealer yesterday to pick up my plates, and he told me that they do have one more '08 M3 left. It's a silver sedan with red interior with a six-speed manual and 19's. I don't know what the sticker on the car is, but he said that they're VERY motivated to get rid of it! If you're interested, call Pete Daia at Alderson BMW in Lubbock, TX. Their phone # is (806)763-8041. Tell him Trevor sent you.

Why would the dealer mail the plates to me when I live 5 miles from them? I've never had plates mailed to me on any car that I've purchased locally. I don't know how they do it in CA, but the plates get mailed to the dealership in Texas. I'm just passing along the info in hopes that a fellow forum member can benefit. I'm sorry that it's hard to comprehend that people are willing to help for nothing in return. Y'all are too smart for me. I'm really a sales guy at the dealership. Good work guys. The reruns of Law & Order paid off.

I'm sorry you missed the rebate launchcontrol. No reason to be a hater, unless it makes you feel better for paying too much.

what would be best is to tell people what he's willing to let the car go for, people want numbers not phone numbers

If I knew what they'd sell the car for I'd tell everyone! If someone is interested enough they'll call. If not, then they won't.

Mods feel free to close or delete this thread. I'm an asshole for trying to help.

I honestly think some people are pissed off about the deals people are getting on 08 leftovers. Especially those that paid MSRP when they were the new hot thing.

And I went to my dealer to pick up my plates as well...

Do you think he'll meet the same deal he gave you on the coupe? In that circumstance, I'd be interested in the sedan although I had my heart set on the coupe.

Honestly, you don't know until you try. They said that the deal on the sedan wont be as good as the deal I got on my coupe, but the sedan stickers for $3000 less than my coupe. So, technically matching the $49900 price would not be as much as the percentage off that I received. $49900 certainly was not where the negotiation started, but that's where it ended up. Figure out what that price is in your head that will make you okay with having a sedan and give them a call with the offer. The worst they can do is say no!

I called Pete. He didn't call back the same day which is fairly rare for a car dealer in this climate. Let's see how willing he is to call today, but I doubt he's very motivated to sell it at the same discount.

How can you even dare to expect a deal CLOSE to Trevor .. don't you know he is the ONLY ONE in the world that pull of a deal like that on an M3 @ Alderson.

Didn't you know .. Trevor D did a hypnosis session on them which convinced them that if they sell it to him at $49,900 (the best deal in the country) ... they would all go to heaven and be nursed by lovely maidens when they die.

Though the dealership knew that M3s all around the country were selling at atleast 5-8Gs more AND all they had to do is advertise it for 10 grand more than the sale price ... to see 2x the amount of interest in the car .. they decided to sell it to him forgoing all those evil profits .... Maybe Trevor can give you a lesson in hypnosis ..

.. good luck .. either way.

I was going to promise 72 virgins in heaven if they make the sale.

LMAO! Another guy that paid too much. It makes my day that people still think I'm lying. I suppose I could post the sales sheet, but it's better listening to a few bitches call BS.

If you really want to help ... why don't you post your sticker (with the last half of the VIN blotted out) and sales sheet with the Alderson BMW letterhead and the appropriate signatures (with any names and signatures half blotted out as well). Let the folks out there then use that to go back to Alderson as you suggest and get that sedan for the price you paid (or close to it).

I agree it must be fun laughing to all the naive folks who actually believed it was possible to get a brand new //M3 for the price you paid and ended up prob. wasting hours searching and calling across the country for such a price point only to be laughed at. I also agree this forum did feed your ego till some folks finally figured out this was your personal ego trip. But hey credit to you .. you had tens of strangers running all over the place. I can only imagine the conversation at the dealership ..

him:I want to buy an //M3
sales: sure sir ... we have a great special on one .. around 59K .. it lists for around $69K
him:well I can offer $50K
sales: you can't be serious ..
him: well a guy named Trevor on the internet got it for $50K and there's a guy on ebay selling it for that as well .. why can't you?
sales: .. click ....
