Well, in order for this car to be sold you will need a signed lease agreement. This includes you having signed all of the disclosures, etc.

Now, the only way that the lease payments can start last week is for BMW to backdate the contract after you sign it.

Backdating financial contracts, such as a lease agreement, is patently against the law.

Let's just say you are not off to a good start.

I'm concerned about these stories all the time. Deposits are different here in California. I was told by multiple SA that deposits can't be placed on cars here in Cali. It's either sold or available for sale. I tried to put deposits on various used cars at different BMW dealerships and was told many times that I couldn't. The fact that BMW of Encinitas did, I'm a little concerned as well. Plane ticket is bought and I'm suppose to pick up car next week. Sorry OP to hear about your story.

The Sales Manager told me the car is mine since I gave him a credit card for deposit. A week later, the charge hasn't appeared on my credit card. I was suppose to sign docs locally as well, but they had the wrong figures on the current contract. The dealership told me that they had to consider the car sold last week when I gave him the CC since they had others looking at the car since then. Therefore, since it's also a leased vehicle, he had to inform BMWNA that the car is sold as well so I have to start payment on it as of last week as well. Any insights to this?

The numbers were changed due to me renegotiating the Tire and Wheel warranty. I was able to get them to lower it even more after the contract was sent so therefore, it had older figures.

I need to look into this matter some more. Will post a thread on this topic. Don't want hijack this thread on an off topic.

You probably could have asked them to send you the paperwork and sign it before you went in. That would have guaranteed the car - but you would have purchased a car without seeing it in person.
You own nothing until you drive that car from the dealership...

OP - that is super shady and you have every right to be pissed off. I hope this thread grows and really shuts out some business on their end. I would go a step further and complain to BMW NA so it's recorded as one more poor customer experience from BMW SF.
