So, I went to the Vista sister store in Pompano. I worked with Bruce Hendricks who is very professional.

I got a good deal (1750 off MSRP) and expect delivery before Xmas (I hope!!!). Purchasing not leasing. I didn't have to negotiate much either. He offered 1100 off MSRP just via an e-mail request quote.

However, they totally low-balled my trade in, which was expected. I did not take their offer.

Their FI folks quoted me a rate of 7.5 for 48 months. My bank quoted me 6.5.

Needless to say, they are not getting my financing either.

When I left a message for FI to call me to arrange to fax paperwork to my bank for processing, I never heard back from them. I assume since they know from the message that I am not using them, that they don't care about helping me with paperwork to buy their vehicle.

So, to avoid dealing with them at all, am now paying in cash.......

Not unexpected, but FI and trade in treated me like there is no info out there and you have to take them at their word... Very disrespectful IMO.

Coming soon via Integrity: 08 328i sedan, jet black/black dakota, prem, sport, USB/IPOD, sat, xenon. Due in Charlotte 12/14.......

Luck to all!
BMW financial has a rate of 4.9% for 60 months thru Dec 31 (you can lock rate for 60 days) I had the same experience with Vista Coconut Creek. Went to BMW Ft. Lauderdale. Clean, painless, and taking delivery next week. I got the best trade deal thru Carmax of all places..even with the tax savings loss!!! (They all lowball your trade)
