Looking to order my first BMW, but need help.

Ok. So im looking to finally make the jump into my first BMW. Only problem was I couldn't find exactly what I want. So it looks like I might be ordering.

This is what I'm looking to get:
335xi coupe, 6-speed, in Space Grey over Coral Red
Premium Pkg
Sports Pkg (still thinking of getting the M sport pkg.)
Cold Weather Pkg
Nav
iPod adapter

MSRP- 52225
Invoice- 46720 (according to MSN autos)
First offer given to me- 51800
Second offer given to me- 49400
Third offer from the dealership my grandfather got his 328i at- 49100

I have an appointment on saturday. What can I say to bring these offers down closer to invoice? Are these offers BS? Are they because its going to be a custom order? If I don't order this weekend, do you guys think I have a shot at 0.9%?
Also, if someone can reccomend someone good to deal with in the NYC/LI area, that would be great. Thanks alot.

BMW sales were down around 35% last month. People on here seem to be getting deals closer to invoice than to MSRP. I was able to get $2500 below invoice with no haggling and that included destination fee, training fee, and maco. If there are other dealerships in the area try them.

oops, I misspoke. I meant $2500 below MSRP...which was about $1500 above invoice.

I just looked up invoice on your specs and I came up with $48,040.

Invoice on my build was $48,430 plus the $180 training fee and $250 MACO.
I wound up paying $50,300...plus tax.

0.9 % financing more than offsets not getting invoice....my bank was offering 5.0 % financing. I figure i still save over $5000 by financing through BMW versus financing the car at invoice cost with my bank.

I ordered (Late May) a 335i @ $500 over invoice. Was told that I was getting the car @ basically zero profit but they matched a deal I got from one of the 'on-line brokers'. Not sure the amount of smoke blown in my direction but that's what I was told. This is the 4th BMW I've picked up from this same CA....that may have had something to do with it.

I think I've seen others get deals as good as $250 over invoice.

3 separate dealers offered me within hundreds of dollars of invoice last week. i went with the one that gave me the most for my trade-in. there's definitely tons of wiggle room. BMW sales were down 20% from last year comparing May 09 to May 08. It's all about your poker face. Go in expecting to pay x-amount (in this economy, i wouldn't pay more than 750$ over invoice) and be ready to leave if they don't give you what you want. There's some online dealer ordering cars at invoice for everyone. Do a search, and you'll find it in these forums. I think he's located in MD. A flight to MD is ~300 dollars from anywhere in the country, and you get to drive your BMW on a road trip home. That's assuming you have the time, and have no trade-in. I had a trade-in, otherwise, I would have order from that dealer.
