Buying a New M3

Hi Guys,

Who here has a "good" contact at BMW.

lol dude were u at the meet on Friday? I was hoping to catch up and have a chat!

Are you looking at a brand new one? E90 or E92? Big difference in price for the 2. E90 is around $140-150 drive away and a E92 is around the 170-180 mark drive away depending on your options. But it can easily hit the 190 mark

DCT is around 6k, individual audio is about 2k, 19" alloys is some more $$ and some other small extras. You could even go an individual colour for alot more $. But at the end of the day it will all add up.

There is a pure edition E92 out which is 'meant' to be cheaper but i dont really think it is.

What colour combo and specs you after? Give us some more info of options etc and then we can give a better estimate from our experience.

Get a few quotes and negotiate. You will be amazed at the difference in prices between different bmw dealers. I started off at Brighton bmw and all they offered was a pretty bad retail price. I then went through Doncaster and crunched them hard. Ended up doing the quote for them showing what extras I wanted included and what price I would pay for everything included. They reluctantly agreed but at the end of the day all they want is to make the deal. Paid $15,000 less than what Brighton would give.

Have you driven a c63 before? I had a look at them before settling on the M3, it's pretty horrid in comparison...the steering and interior were particularly bad IMO

The guy I bought mine from at Doncaster has left to go into real estate. Doesn't really matter who you see. They key is to tell them what you will pay ($10,000-$15,000 below what their quote is) and pull out your cheque book/credit card to let them know you mean business and are ready to sign up on the day.

the 2012 looks like they've paid a little attention to the interior

what do you mean cost price?

I think they are only $120,000 cost price but what kills it is the luxury car tax + on roads
