Thumbs down WTF no more 320-330's???!?!

Hey, I contacted a BMW dealer in my country today which is New Zealand not 'USA' lol.

And I said to the guy 'how much am i lookin at for a new 325i custom built?'

He said!

'We only take in the 335i & 335d!!!

WHAT! It costs about $60k USD in NZ and it is a shit load especially since im young as.

So, I guess I should start saving up for a nice new 335i!

But then theres insurance lol

I think the problem is that he thought you wanted an Individual. Cant say much about New Zealand but it is preposterous that they do not sell a lesser model.

just bring one down on your own. import taxes work off of engine size, so the smaller, the cheaper it is to bring in.

Exactly just import it yourself, can't be that hard. But my guess would be that the dealer is also willing to sell you a 325, otherwise he is not selling any car

can you import your own?!

So i'm guessing I ring up Bayerische Motoren Werke Munichen and say Guten Tag, can I please get a 325i? I'm guessing they wouldn't sell to individuals?

You need to ring a dealership, preferably one which can sell you tax free, so this is not Germany. Look in other countries, maybe Australia is an option for you?
