Any one bought car via Costo's car buying program?

Did any one buy a BMW via Costo's car buying program and get a good discount and how much? Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Almost...
started my search for best price on an e90 using the Costco program. I went to one dealer requesting Costco price, best they would give me is $1200 over invoice, which wasn't too bad but I felt I could get better. They would not budge from the costco price so I went to another dealer requesting $800 over invoice (no mention of costco program) and got it.

Bottom line, it's an OK program if you don't want to haggle but you will not get best posssibe price.
If you do go with the program and your dealer gives you a price, you should confirm this price with the Costo Auto Program Assistant, just to be sure.

yea, i tried. the dealer in the bay area is peter pan. found that the discount wasn't that great, and you could negotiate a better number with that same dealer, as well as surrounding dealers in the bay area. the guy i dealt with there was a complete asshole, so i crossed that dealer off my list.

I found the Costco program to be a complete waste of time, and could do better myself.
