my dealer was giving me this BS about how rubber floor mats are cheaper and that the normal mats are better since they have rubber on the bottm...

w/e, at least i got a killer lease rate that other dealer couldn't give me...

BTW: i did get a 100 dollar gift certificate.....


and is hard for you to be asking for free stuff when your gonna be picking up the car.. shoulda asked for it before you signed the deal.

Got a $50 gift certificate, rubber floor mats, and chrome licence plate frames during pick-up, although Ludia Li from Auto West is a personal family friend.

GuyOh: Why do you have BMW Store licence plate frames if you got your car from BJ?

The "free" stuff (eg wheel locks, floor mats) should be negotiated beforehand, not at delivery. You'll be lucky to get anything more than a coffee mug and key chain.

Hate to break it to you, but the LED flashlight is standard for the '08s, which replaces the rechargeable unit that came with previous E9Xs. Your dealer wasn't being overly generous.

If your car comes with the 6FL/USB Integration, you needn't go for the dealer installed adaptor. The Y-cable is what you need. Try negotiating that into the deal.

If you didn't order USB Integration then just disregard that.
