When i told him that was clearly unreasonable, he shook my hand and said "well then good luck selling it privately", and walked away..i drive past the dealership (autowest bmw in richmond bc) at least once a week and Ive noticed they've had the same inventory on their lot for a long time now, so I'm not sure where the smug attitude is coming from....
When I was trading my drive ,one of dealers in TO adviced me to go for 335i because it would have yielded more money back when it came to time to resell it. However, I am surprised when yours is offered at $17000.
Honestly, sale guys at dealers are talking non-sense, they just care about the money they are gonna get from the deal.
