    Prices in the Bay Area

    Hey everyone, I can't hold it off anymore and I'm ready to take the plunge :)

    I wanted to check what's a good price for a coupe (I went through all the old posts). I live in the Bay Area, but don't mind coming to southern Cali or Oregon to pick up the car.

    A dealer here wants $74K for a 2006 650 black/SP/HUD/satellite radio. That is exactly the car I want, but I figured there should be a discount for a 2006 at this point.. For a 2007, they want 77K. And for some reason, their ED price is 75K. I would have thought the difference would be much more. My buddy got more than 2K off for his 3...

    Any advice? Thanks much.

    Re: Prices in the Bay Area

    I am not sure if Southern California is any better in terms of pricing of these cars, it may even be worse. I don't know how it is this year but about a year ago when I was shopping for a 2006 I was not able to get much of a break at all around Los Angeles area. About $1500 off sticker was all I could get them to do with the specifics that I wanted to order with. But I have a feeling the irrational sales and purchases may have gone away to a large degree.

    As for ED, whatever the sticker price is that you see on the window, the ED price on a 650i is about $5K less. I got my car through ED and that is the price they showed me. It used to on the BMWNA website as well at the time. They told me this is a set price and there is no haggling on ED price but I have been told that is not true and they could even discount that if they want to, but I am not sure about this. At some point it becomes unproductive and exhausitng to haggle with these guys and you want the car so bad that you just go for it.

    Thanks for the info! Wanted to make sure I'm not ripped off.

    One dealer quoted me the ED price as only 2K cheaper, and then tried to say that's because it's from their quota. I'll ask a few more.
