I wouldn’t really say you get to choose on the auto cross however you do get to go two separate times, so your odds of getting the 50 at least once is decent. I suppose if you didn’t get the model you wanted on the first round you could request it for the 2nd but I didn’t see anybody doing that.
IIRC last year OL codes were by region as in some regions received them while others may have not. No idea as to what they are doing this year however the Denver event did email an OL code out approximately 24 hours after check in time. B/C it’s likely to get asked, I signed up for the event, checked in at the event, no, I have no idea if you will get the code if you just sign up and do not attend, though IMO it’s unlikely.
While the OL code is great, it’s still going to take a combination of a higher rv, a lower mf, and about 5% more off MSRP than is currently available ( all unlikely ) to make this compelling for me personally however ymmv.
Huge difference in the OL code you received vs. in the past. You went to an event this weekend (end of June) and the code you got is only valid until August of this year.
That 99% ensures you’d have to buy a unit off the lot, as it’s not enough time for an order. Why does that matter? Orders are about the only way you’ll get a decent discount off MSRP.
I went to the event last year in June of 2021 and the code I got was valid for 8 months. So in August I placed an order, got an insane 11.25% off MSRP (thanks Quentin) plus $500 OL, and was able to apply it when the car arrived in October. That would be impossible now.
Yes, discounts have dropped off and the MF has skyrocketed. The only incentive is maybe $1000 loyalty on most models. I’m happy I got the deal I did when I did, but worried how much it might cost me next time around.
I know it’s easier said then done but if your next lease isn’t for another 27 months I wouldn’t worry too much.
Completely realizing that while I say that I scroll through Craigslist more than I should with about a 70% chance I end up with something south of 10k and a 30% chance of being closer to 20k. I also happen to have another 4 months left on my lease while still trying to capitalize on the equity.
UDE event was at the end of July and the OL Code was valid through 9/30. BMW is still the best when it comes to incentives, if I can get an LCI 330e order delivered by 8/31 these will be the incentives i can stack:
Dealer discounts are not what they used to be but still available for those who are shopping around and/or don’t mind buying out of state. Not sure what other brand(s) still offer a combination of dealer discounts and manufacturer incentives so I will keep buying them bimmers
