Did you try Autohaus? They had a LBB, 6mt, carplay, led.

Endras also had a LBB stripper model. 6mt

Yes, I'm in Vancouver but at your price it may still be cheaper to buy it there and ship it over. I'll just take it as a sign to get the M2C.

Thinking about purchasing a BMW F31 328d Touring/wagon before the combination disappears on the next generation of the 3 series.

Reasearching online seems like production is stopping 10/2018 on the F30 and 06/2019 on the F31. Only thing is I’m not sure if North America will get the wagon extended to the 2019 model year like Europe. If 2018 is the last year to order the wagon which month will be last to factory order a car?

Reason for factory order is that there are very few options for in stock models and all have colour combo’s and features that I wouldn’t configure myself so it seems like ordering is the only option.

How much of a dealer discount can you expect on a factory order of this car?

Is there any resource to see what were the previous months factory incentives?

Right now they are only offering 1.9% finiancing and 2.9% leasing with a $2000 rebate compared to 0.9%/1.9% and $3000 rebate on the sedans. Hoping they will eventually match or exceed the sedan offerings as the new model gets introduced.

Lastly for the 2018 3 series, is Apple CarPlay wireless? Or do you need the $600 Extended Smartphone Connectivity with Wireless Charging package to get it?

Looking to buy 530e (Electric) and wondering what kind of discount off the MSRP to expect (Is 6-7% off realistic)? Does the dealer take off the Ontario Electric Car incentive (worth 7K)? Also any idea on the inventory or wait time to get one would be much appreciated.

^ that's doable + $2000 factory credit for April. You have to file the rebate yourself. Dealers don't stock them so you may have to ask dealer to do a search.

im set on getting either a 2012 or 2013 X6 M. Love the look on the e71 vs the newer f15/f16. Only thing is autotrader is lacking e71s in ontario for sale. I see some in Montreal, any cons from buying a quebec car?

Hmm. Cons:

You need to travel there to see the car in person, rather than simply looking at the pictures. As long you are okay with that.
You will need to find a trustworthy local shop that do PPI and really have the car checks out inside out.
If the vehicle has more than a few owners, I would not even consider it at all. It may be a sign of various issues with it.

One mechanical issue could be excessive oil consumption on this engine.

For a fully loaded 2013 with around 80-100K km, fair value to pay would be around mid to upper $40's for private listing. If anyone is asking into the $50's, I would say not worth it as you are paying too much of it

Is it fully loaded ?

If it is almost base, then that's in the ball park of being reasonable .. possibly due to used car market in Quebec is not as highly valued there vs Ontario.

If you have to take the car for an inspection, call up WeTune in Montreal to see if they can do an PPI on this car. http://www.wetune.ca/index.html

Again, due diligence is required on a 5+ yr old high maintenance vehicle. (Get as much info, you can, like carproof, past service history, etc.)

btw, you will need to test drive the car to ensure there is no issue with any suspension squeaks & rattle, brakes do squeak a lot on this M cars. I am sure you will have to budget another $5K for the hidden surprises once you take ownership of it.
