Nice! Out of curiosity...what are the last 4 of your VIN? Ours is 2753 and went from "Production Begins" all the way through "Quality Check" today.

Best I have seen is a '$ cost' deal which is pretty close to dealer invoice, plus incentives This is on a 56k MSRP vehicle ($3750 off) plus the $4k in incentives for about $8k total - Any ideas on ways to get closer to the 8% or above before incentives? I'd be doing PCD in SC regardless to pickup doesnt matter.

Thanks in advance!
kcleuk might be able to help you for ATL as I know he hit up a random dealer down there last month...

Make sure you see if you can get the BMW CCA and Costco rebates too!
Costco isn't stackable with USAA or Fleet, right?

Costco is now stackable I believe. I think the language changed when they brought it back this last time.

Hit up Derek Stiebel at Nalley BMW or you can also try Brandon J. Fiffie at BMW of Gwinnett Place. Brandon was the best all in deal I found in GA. Feel free to mention my name Michael Nunes and PM me if you need more information.

Thank you...I'm going to have to investigate. Used to be that you couldn't stack BMW CCA with the Costco/fleet/USAA, but that changed a month ago.

I'll look into it.

EDIT:
Here are the terms - if this doesn't explicitly say that you can't use fleet, then I think that means we can stack it.
†To qualify for this offer, the customer must: (1) Be a Costco Member by July 5, 2018; (2) Register with Costco Auto Program to receive a BMW certificate with the unique Type G offer code NEPP4317 ($500 Costco Member incentive); (3) Present their certificate to the BMW dealership at time of purchase or lease; (4) Take delivery or place a factory order on an eligible model between July 5, 2018, and October 1, 2018.

Excludes: (1) BMW Pre-Owned vehicles and previously reported vehicles with more than 4,999 miles; (2) Cannot be used in conjunction with the following programs: Group Partner & Family, European Delivery, Diplomatic and Embassy, Military Sales (USAA), Limousine & Hotel Shuttle and/or VIP Purchase; (3) Loyalty and Conquest Credits are only eligible on a purchase or lease financed through BMW Financial Services and excludes 2018/2019 M2 Coupe/Competition, 2019 M3 CS Sedan and 2019 M4 CS Coupe, 2019 M5 Competition; (4) $500 purchase or lease incentive excludes 2018/2019 M2 Coupe/Competition, 2019 M3 CS Sedan and 2019 M4 CS Coupe, and 2019 M5 Competition; and (5) $10,000 finance incentive through BMW of Financial Services or providing your own source of financing on the BMW i3 cannot be combined with any other offers, but can be combined with available federal or state EV incentives they qualify to receive.

I had a difficult time negotiating in NorCal and was stuck at invoice.

I started by emailing all dealers and saying I was ready to buy at 11% dealer discount. All ignored my email except one that said no way.

I got a better response when I called the local dealers and asked to speak to internet sales. Told them I was ready to buy today at 10% and that I was going to email them my build. They could call my mobile if they agreed. The sales guys wanted to deal but kept getting blocked by their managers. Large dealers with 2018s are trying to push them instead.

Eventually I started texting a dealer and got him to agree at month end.

All the best.

Also double check your BMW incentives. I don't think there is 4k available unless this is not a m40i in which case I have no idea.

Mine has been in "Quality Check" all day yesterday and today. How can it take 2 days to do a quality check?

Last night my status was "entering assembly line", this morning it's "assembly in progress". Doesn't match up with the old status codes I am used to with German-built BMWs so they must use a new system on the order tracking website.

I found the tracking in MyBMW to be off. The actual production of mine was ahead of status shown. The dealer even called me to say the car was on its way while the site said it was in production. It was probably off a few days, not sure how often they update the status.
