How much off sticker did you guys buy your M3 for?

Hey Guys, I was wondering how much off sticker price you were able to negotiate for on your M3? I've seen a dealer that is still charging premiums, but then again, I've heard of people getting $1000 below sticker.

$2500 off sticker? What about for a car that has to be ordered to my specs. I got $600 off sticker, do you think it's a good deal? I didn't get an individual color or anything out of the ordinary.

You definately do not live in SoCali. There is no way the dealer will give you $2500 off.

$500 to $1000 off is as good as it gets....especially for a Cab.

yep, most folks are getting at least $2000, some even getting $3000 off MSRP for M3's ordered to their specs

$600 off isn't a very good deal, unless you're talking 2 years ago

Do you know what states these people are getting their M3's at that price for? I don't think it's possible to get those prices at So. Cal dealers.

$1500 off at Cunningham BMW here in San Diego (Gotta thank Shane). I guess I could have gotten more but considering that was the first time meeting him and giving me a hookup says alot in itself.

Funny thing is, 5 days before when I talked to the same sales rep directly, he wouldn't even go below sticker!

Oh and thanks to Lon and Carl for pointing me in the right direction

Try Colorado dealers, Towne BMW in NY, and some lower eastern state BMW dealers... they will offer a MUCH better deal... my brother brought his 330ci from a Colorado dealer for $4000 cheaper than what dealers in west coast (WA, OR and CA dealers) was offering him. M3 is a big investment... make sure you are getting a good deal before buying one.
