I got a 5 series loaner from Richie, he setup all that was needed with the dealer. Once the initial half of the broker fee was paid, he introduced me to the dealer, to whom I was able to send over additional information to start the application process. All the paperwork was ready when I came to sign in at the dealership. I knew and was OK with all the numbers before and thus when I went to sign for the car, it was a breeze. Sent Richie the last half of the payment after all was signed for. Start to finish ~1 week.
There were few follow ups from after the contract was signed, namely, “allowed mileage” section on the BMWFS application, which was expressed differently in old BMWFS application vs new one.
To anyone going through this process, here is what I suggest
- Know your numbers
- Have insurance ready
- Form of payment ready
- FYI – if you recently terminated a BMW lease, before getting a new car, your MSDs will not likely transfer over, those are in the works to be returned to you. Same with disposition fee, which is returned to you if you get into a BMW within 6 months of previous lease end.
Thanks Richie !
