Not so mate ..John Clarke BMW have increased their contribution on new LCI's (13.6k deposit contribution now , inc. BMWFS 6k contribution).

Also if looking for used approved X3MC's check also the BMW used approved Website .. links provided to both below:

What I did was take JC's offer and went for a price match or better with more local to me BMW Dealers

I used this simple PCP tool when optioneering

Also push hard on your SQ5 Trade-in , use webuyanycar / motorway to see how the value is stacking up and compare with what dealers are prepared to offer .. I went from 2k neg equity on my 2018 440i in Jan 21 to 4.5k positivity equity by Jun-21 , I was hounded by wbac phone calls as to when I was selling them my 440i ... eventually preferred dealer beat both WBAC and Motorway by 500 and 1000 respectively. (22k to 26.5k), some dealers would n't budge on 21.5K, even with UA prices escalating .. not mentioning any names .... ooops Williams BMW ( they lost my business on an S55 M4C Ultimate in SMB and an M2C fully loaded in LBB (All MPerformace external and internal parts) it worked out well really as the X3MC fully eclipses these "also rans" , with a massive price saving to boot over a 1year old M4C and M2C. Whilst my 440i was increasing in price the M4C and M2C that were available went up by 8 grand for the same time period. I would think any one who bought back end of 2020 would be absolutely quids in by mid year 21 up to present day. Certainly if purchased before Q4 2020 as Q3 had used approved "M" cars @ 2.9% apr
