Exclamation Found Bay Area Waitlist at MSRP

Hello everyone, just placed a deposit with East Bay BMW (Pleasanton) for a sedan (#5) at guaranteed MSRP. Their list for coupe is about 15 (including convertibles).

The deposit is fully refundable and is $5K.

Feel free to contact John Wolff - john.wolff@hendrickauto.com

to get on the list.


Can't Wait!

The salesman said that they should get quite a few given that it is one of the highest volume dealerships in the bay area.

Anyone else already on the list around San Francisco?

I put my deposit down at that place in late January (was $5k then as well). I'm 6th or 7th on the whole list (going after a coupe if it makes any difference). I called basically every BMW dealership in the south bay and East Bay BMW was the only 1 that was taking deposits @ MSRP at the time (I had a number of dealerships tell me they were planning $10k markups; 1 even told me they'd mark it up over $20k).

That's insane. Those dealers won't be selling any M3 for a while.

Mark my words in Nor Cal and So Cal some dealers will repeatedly get $15k over and in some cases $20k over as well. I have posted about my various experiences and data on this topic in other forums.

MSRP is what enthusiast would pay

Some dealers will mark up price during initial launch, but for $20k over MSRP would open up whole lot more buying options.

Most "true" enthusiasts are savvy consumers (done the homework and the research), they won't shell out 1 penny more than MSRP on the cars they want. Those who preferred to pay more than MSRP (to get ahead of anyone else) reserve their bragging rights. For all M3 enthusiasts, let's not fall into the hand of dealers.

It does open up more buying options for people but there's so much money around here (Silicon Valley) that some people can afford to pay $20k over MSRP to have something that's new and different.

The BMW dealerships can ask $20,000 over MSRP and still sell the cars... They assume that most people are going to haggle with them on the price (thats what most people do when buying a new car). Do any of you remember when the PlayStation 3 was released, the system cost $600 but on ebay they were going for over $3,000!!! its all supply and demand. And its going to be the same way for the new M3.

High margin over MSRP only lasts for a very short period of time.

Hence why i'm sitting on it and am going to wait for a 2nd year M3, along with avoiding the inevitable issues which come with 1st year release cars.

My dealer wont ever mark up a car past MSRP. I think people are crazy to pay more.
