I got mine from BMW of Bellevue for a great deal. Just ask for Alvin Eklund and tell him Ronald with the '09AW M3 sent you. Great guy. If you do your research and let him know that you don't want to waste either of your times and just give him your bottom line, he'll work with you. 69K is a great deal, got mine for less tho.

I see people shooting for invoice + $1000. Do you guys think this is reasonable?

Johnny, did you see any E92 when you passed by?

Search cars.com, autotrader, craigs, etc...if you are willing to "go get" your M3, you will get a better deal. For whatever reason, the Seattle/Bellevue dealerships here think that they can demand a premium for these cars compared to other cities in the US. I'm a pro-used guy..last year I bought a 1-yo e92 M3 (loaded - nav, extended leather, 19's, etc) with only 2,000 miles on it for 50...don't spend 60k+ on a vehicle that's going to lose 10 grand in the first 6 months after you buy it. Let someone else take that huge depreciation hit. Just my 2 cents...

Dealt with him already. He was wishy washy about selling his car in the beginning. I offered to buy his car at stock then flipped it and said he will only sale the car with the exhaust or wheels. I didn't want neither parts so he decided to keep it.

Hell of a deal...Buuut considering that it's an '09 and that MY2010 and MY2011 are right around the corner with all the new packages, I bet you could get it for even lower then 69,900. Maybe 68 or 67,5. Who knows....Still pretty good deal.

I got mine from out of state last month because I couldn't find any used DCT ones locally and didn't want to take the first year depreciation hit...

I bought a '08 with 12k miles on it for $53k. I did see the '10 AW one at Bellevue when I was looking, but they were asking for $73k and they were lowballing me on my trade in... With the more than $20k difference, I figure an '08 is a better buy.

I never had good experiences with BMW Seattle or Bellevue in terms of purchasing. This area has been really insulated from the economic climate and the dealers show it. They barely moved on pricing from MSRP when I talked to them about a used 09 last year. After calling just about every dealership on the west coast I finally found a car in cali and got the car at Invoice with 0.9 financing.

I would definitely suggest looking at dealers in areas that have been hit hardest by the economy (San Diego for example)...
