I'll sit tight with my current convertible unless I get a good deal.
LOL! I am with you. I want to support local businesses but at the same time I still need to make sure I am making sound financial decisions.

Well, the sound financial decision is to not buy a new car and to buy a used one instead in a few years. That lets someone else take the big hit.

Thatís what I usually do, but in this case there are no older used ones. You could always get a 2017 Boxster S instead with some miles on it if youíre looking to save a lot off retail. It was definitely something I considered, but Iíve had a few Porsches recently (2014 Turbo S that was eventually modified for Stage 4; a first generation GT4; and presently, I have a 997.2 GT3 RS in the garage). Iím sort of sick of Porsche for the time being (their GPS is garbage...).

Curious if BMW FS will lower the money factor in Q2 as a result of the Fed cutting rates. Also if BMW will increase incentives in Q2, assuming overall lower demand.

After seeing the maintenance costs on these things I would never buy one used, even with CPO.
A used Honda or Toyota? Sure.
But not a BMW.

My credit union has 3.09% APR as of last week so rates are definitely favorable right now.

Also I just got another quote, not exactly the options I wanted but maybe ok.
$69k sticker
$62k price
$3k various rebates & incentives.
Takes me down to just over $59k before tax & reg, which seems like a better deal.

Nice! How did you manage to get $3k rebates and incentives? You are getting the BMW CCA rebate?

No, but I was thinking of trying that too.
One is supposedly a rebate for using BMW financial (2.99% APR), another is owner loyalty and another is my company participates in some BMW corporate buying plan (though that's only $500)

Paid mine for SGD286888. Which is close to USD200k. Yes, this is the kind of crazy price for cars in Singapore.
Mine is a Misano Blue 30i

Garage List
2018 BMW 440  [0.00]
2013 BMW 135is  [0.00]
2020 M40i

$70,505 MSRP Price after discounts & rebates $59,000 MF .00142

Rebates do not include the BMWCCA $500, need to send in the paperwork or the BMWFS unused mileage refund, around $300+ which comes as a check.

Satisfied with the deal as it was the exact car I would have ordered so I did not have to settle for anything. Build month was 1/2020
