Where in NYS or Tristate area can I get a 335i Coupe for Invoice or below invoice

Where can i find a 2009 335i coupe for invoice or below invoice in NYS or the Tristate area..? Is it possible? The invoice is like 38k right?..Thank you guys..if I find one I would trade in my baby 328 that i got like a month ago (I figure as long as il be making payments for the next 3 years might as well pay a lil more and drive the 335) thank you

I can get you $500 over invoice if you're willing to come to Ridgefield CT, but that's about it.

Definitely try to get into 335i, try to get it in 6 speed manual...manual is cheaper and the whole lot more fun! If you drive this twin turbo sport package manual 6 speed, clutch, you would never want to drive automatic, let alone less powerfull 328 that doesn't have sports suspension. Enough said for motivation, here is where you can get a good deal on new 335i,- "Life Quality BMW" ask for Alex Gilkis phone # 718-439-00-55. Address,- 9326 Fourth Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11220. Last time I was there, Alex gave me a car at invoice. Before negotiating, I went to www.truecar.com printed out options I wanted at "GREAT PRICE", showed print out to Alex, and said to him that's the price I want or I'm going elsewhere. So, he gave it to me! Good luck!

1. all e92 coupes regardless of engine have sports suspension
2. Life "Quality" is terrible. Avoid at all cost. Search their name on here on any bmw forum, and you will see what I mean


How long have you had your 335?

Forgot who sold me the car, but goto rallye bmw. easiest automotive transaction i've done. Essentially emailed rallye, went in and talked with ca, talked a lil bit and done deal, 500 over invoice. its the damn finance manager you need to look out for, just say no to the add ons

How long have you had your 335?
My 335i is one of the first ones built in November 2006, so it's 2007 335i. By now this coupe has 54k miles...never had major problem. The only problems I would have with this car is from taking it to dealer. All dealers are horrible...I wonder sometimes how they stay in business...if such poor customer service was happening in Germany, they would all long be fired for sure. I serviced my 335i at BMW of Manhattan and it was some of the worst experiences ever...and I am not a fussy customer. BMW of Manhattan services more than 200 cars a day, so you can imagine with that many cars to service, they are prone to make mistakes, misdiagnose, etc,.. I heard some bad things about Life Quality BMW, but things have changed, service has improved...for the last year I have only been dealing with LQBMW... haven't had problem there...we have no more dealerships left here, so we are trying to build good relations with smaller local dealers like LQBMW, so I recommend it.

Whatever... This summer I was shopping for an M3, to trade my 2007 335i in...looked everywhere...when first met Alex at BMW in Brooklyn, didn't really like him, but he did write a deal for 2009 M3 at cost...it's a fact, I still have paperwork.

Don't feel sorry for you...you get what you deserve,-for each his own...who drives 328 in girly color white? Maybe some punk in staten island? Maybe the fumes of Dump of Staten got into your head? Is this what you like? You like when people talk to you like this? If you want respect, you have to give one too. I am a respectful poster, searching for information and sharing information. This is a great forum and has helped me a lot. The trick with www.truecar.com to use as a good negotiation tool I got here, and it prooves once again to be a working one. I am one fellow poster helping another...its because of posters like myself this forum is so great...and what are you bringing to this forum? Aggression? Disrespect? Keep your 328 misery to yourself, would you? If you have nothing usefull to add, why don't you just keep out? Or...

Actually my family left Brooklyn years ago. They then moved to Staten Island, where my family still resides. Many parts of Brooklyn changed , and it was a less desireable place to raise a family.

I will apologize for calling you shady. The reason I did was because under your screen name it says you have a 335i. The post was a direct question asking where can I get a invoice price on a 335i. You said LQ bmw gave you a deal at invoice. I assumed you were talking about the deal you scored on your 335i.

Then I remembered you were on here a few weeks ago asking what dealer should you go to get your M3 from. It seemed odd to me that if you scored an invoice price on your 335i you would just not return to the same dealership for the M3.

328 misery? Hardly. I love that car. I also like Alpine White, which is probably one of the most popular colors. Some say it's girly, but I am fine with that too. Heck, some say the 135i I just got is girly, but that too doesn't bother me. Thankfully, I do not judge a person by the car they drive. I am a bigger man than you will ever be. Enjoy the M3. It looks like you will need it to fill a few voids in your life.

sorry if I hurt your feelings. Have a nice day.

back to my original point Life Quality is horrible:

http://www.dealerrater.com/dealer/Li...BMW-review-39/

I would gladly pay extra not to deal with them.

I went in there 3 years ago when I did the 328i coupe. I told them I had gotten a price of $1000 over invoice. They basically called me a liar saying no dealer is selling this car below msrp. The CA's exact quote was "get one for me at that price, not going to happen, maybe on the sedan, but even then I doubt it"

2 days later, I get a call from the finance manager, and they offer me $1000 over invoice. I said no thank you. The next day I get a call saying if I was to come in today and do the deal, they could give it to me for $800 above invoice. At this point I asked them to lose my number.

Fast forward 2 months later I was driving the car that I ordered $1000 over invoice, which included my MACO and other fees. But what I do remember, I did business with the dealership that treated me the best at the time. I had better prices, but I gave my business to the better dealership.

I learned that saving the extra $7 a month is not worth the time, effort, and the fact that I would be supporting a bunch of jerks.
