Socal Peeps....Where to go for 09 E90 M3

I have decided to not wait anymore looks like no major changes to E90 M3 and I am probably going to keep this car as a collectors item for as long as possible, so reselling 10-15 years later a 2009 or 2010 will probably not matter.

So...give me people i can directly talk to who will not give me hassle and are straight forward. I am buying in cash so any hints during negotiations are welcome!

Thanks in advance!

first tip...don't tell them your buying cash. they make less $$ so they know they can't give you as good of a deal as when you finance. I have some contacts in Irvine BMW. Feel free to PM if you want.

Are you saying that i shouldn't tell them i'm buying cash until I have signed on a number? or until i am given a number?

just say your financing (whatever number you want). then when you got the deal and you're in finance, bust out the briefcase.

I ordered an E90 M3 from Long Beach BMW about 2 months ago. Got an awesome deal and no hassle.

Try calling them and ask for Will Shaw. Or you can try pm him here: will@longbeachbmw.com.

Say WHAT? I thought clean cash was very motivating since it's HOT & FRESH!! (but I guess you do have a valid point in the dealer making extra money on the finacing).

Definately call Phillippe Kahn at South Bay Bmw . No hassle, NO BS, just a straight up guy and will give you a great price. Got my e90 M3 from him last year and did all negotiating over the phone and via e-mail, went in on a Saturday morning and signed the papers and was in and out within an hour. At the time I got the car under invoice, he has sold a bunch of cars to people on BMW forums and he always looks after them.

Hints:
Make sure you know the invoice price and start under invoice working your way up or down as you please
Check there inventory and see if there is a car that matches your specs on there lot, much easier to deal on a car they have because they are loosing money when it is on the lot

PM me if you have any other questions

True, but on the other hand if they know you're a cash buyer then they know you're legit.

Tell them you are financing all of the car. The higher the financing the better for them.

Kevin might be cool, but that dealership is SHIT.
My wife's 335 had half a tank of gas and they don't give you a loaner when you go in for service and bought the car there. The Enterprise is also really expensive. Just stay away.

Will and Steve are good guys to work with at Long Beach.


For the best price, Nick Alexander is usually the cheapest because they're a little out of the way. Reza is really cool there.
