2017 BMW F30 340i xDrive

Anyone bought a 340xi recently?
How's the car and what kind of pricing were you able to receive?
I see BMW.ca has 0.9% APR for 48-month lease (at roughly 50% residual) and a $3,500 factory credit -- very enticing deal.
Is it possible to get invoice on this car?

take the configured MSRP / 1.095. Do note this is still not the 'True' invoice price.

So 8.68% is invoice? Always thought it's right at 8%. (Not the true invoice of course).

2018 leasing rate is listed at 6.8% up to 39 months. That makes the 2017 a bargain, given it is virtually the same car

No changes at all? That's ridiculous... Are 2018s rolling in already?

for example, $70,000 / 1.095 = $63,927.
Margin in $: $70,000 - $63,927 = $6,073
Margin in % $6,073 / 63,927 = 9.5%

Tag on the portion of the PDI, dealer admin fee, other bogus add ons, sales incentive between factory-to-dealer ... you are looking at well near 13%+ on gross margin.

Oh you're looking at markup %, I'm looking at it from discount % perspective (e.g. 6,073/70,000).
I am aiming for 8-8.5% with no BS fees, will shop around and see.

I guess for MY2017 you can only get it if it is instock? (i.e. can't order spec from factory)

Price is enticing...but last time I went there, basically none of the dealers in GTA stock manual...

Do be careful on how many dealers are playing around with their side of discount + factory side credit.

Either you tell dealer this is the OTR price you are looking for or be specific on ...

- I am looking for x% off from the dealer side +
- I understand there is $3500 factory credit as well
- I will not pay certain fees and charges
- $0 down
- I am looking for things (accessories) to be included in the deal

Yep, I'm not new at this ;)
Was window shopping this morning on the internet and found the factory deal to be enticing so thinking of making the switch if can get a good deal from the dealers.

Damn, the factory credit is off the charts compared to what it was 2 months ago.

I got a F30 340i xDrive with all the options you mentioned including the M Performance + M Performance 2 packages, but it didn't include the 398 wheels.

I got mine for 7% off, but this is in the Ottawa area.

last time i was shopping was a year ago lol.

I needed a car quick, but they said there is ZERO manual car in stock in the GTA. (regardless of options) Rep said manual always factory order only and no one keep inventory.
I just did some quick math, about $600+tax a month with 0 down, and $3500 dealer discount (6%~) with just the basic premium pkg.

Last year it was like $800+ for a 340i (rwd).
