Drive the Deal - Very small discount on offer

Hi guys,

I went into the Drivethe deal and the C2C websites to get an idea of the discount I could get if I get to order from them a fairly full loaded 335d M Sport.

Although C2C offered a total price that represented almost a 13% discount to the RRP, the drive the deal website could only manage a 2.4% discount.

DTD is claiming that they only supply cars from UK main dealers. May this be the reason for the small discount? Are C2C different; i.e. are they supplying cars from other sources as well?

Thanks

Presume you must be talking coupe? I've looked at saloon and touring recently, and very healthy discounts still available.

Both C2C and DTD use UK dealers only.

Squeeze standby to be envious tomorrow with pics of the 335d, you know you really really wanted Le Mans


I noticed the DtD quote on the E92 as well, its strange. Autoebid are also offering decent discounts at around the 12% mark.

I bought my coupe thru http://www.broadspeed.com almost one year ago sept 06

They are showing 4k saving on 335D _M coupe. which is amazing compare to the meagre 1500 I got at launch. still that was 1500 more than the local dealer would give me.


We are looking at getting the wife a new motor soon and I have offered to get her a 320D touring, I would have not qualms at all using broadspeed again (its a front for coopers/inchscape)
