Well, the car came with Sirus, I did ask them to remove it and remove the cost but he couldn't do that yet did lower the cost.

You are right they don't budge much, but I wanted a 2006 model, and there were no used ones yet and no other dealers on the island. Salemans reply to my negotiating: "Not everyone can drive a BMW. BMW does not make as much profit as Lexus or Acura. And most luxury dealers can't compare their warranty and maintenance with BMW." I needed a car that time and they gave me the highest trade in value for my problem camoflauge vehicle. I did not want to wait 3 months for an ordered one and the titanium silver just sold me. I did bring in a internet build sheet printout with just the non-metalic paint and steptronic transmission option which help bring down the cost a little.

Here is the break down of my car before negotiating:

2006 BMW 325i $30995
automatic 1275
metallic paint 475
sirus 595
destination charge 695
subtotal $34035

tax 1418
docs. & lic 310

total ~$35800
