Hi all, newbie here. I am coming back to the BMW fold having last had a C2 2.7 Alpina in 1988! The last new car I bought was my Golf GTI in Sept 2006. I have a quote for the M135i which I thought was good with the dealer throwing in a complimentary BMW Professional multimedia, but then see he is also listing Fuel £75, Delivery £700 (I will collect from his showroom!) and 12 months RFL £275, so is effectively clawing back £1050. Is this normal? I had thought the car came with a tank of fuel and a years RFL all inc., and £700 delivery charge seems outrageous.
Also can anyone advise whether the Adapative Suspension is worth having?
Many thanks.
Nothing wrong with the above, Sir.

RRP for the M135i (3 door) currently stands at £28,755.
OTR (On The Road) price for said car currently stands at £29,995.

The £1,240 difference is made up of:
- First year road fund license - £460 for the manual tranny
- Delivery - £700(from the factory to the dealership.. not to you)
- First registration fee - £55
- £25 fuel

These are the pre-set figures, but dealers can tweak these as they wish - for example, I always put down £75 fuel (as per the exec who gave you your quote) as its only right taking delivery of a new car with a full tank of fuel.

£700 per car delivery?!

Any option for picking it up from Germany and saving £700? Would make an interesting trip!

Thanks my quote has the car listed as £29,845 (I am speccing 8 speed auto so 12m RFL= £275) but then at the end of the list quoted is Fuel £75, RFL £275, Delivery £700 and 1st Reg Fee £55. So looks like my OTR price is £30,950 when it should be £29,845 inc OTR costs.

I doubt the quote is wrong, but based on the fact that you're RFL is £275 I'm guessing you've specced an auto.. the auto box is a ~£1500 option? think that might be the reason for the disparity?

No the basic price for the car as a 5 door is quoted as £29,845. The auto is extra £1600, along with various options at full price. the dealer is throwing in prof media, then adding on Fuel (£75), RFL (£275), 1st Reg fee (£55) and delivery (£700) at the end to add a further £1105. What I am trying to understand is whether £29,845 is the OTR price for a 5 door inc. fuel, RFL, 1st Reg, fuel. Or is the dealer trying to pull a flanker and mitigate some of the cost of the 'free' prof media by adding £1105 in OTR costs at the end of the price quoted.....
Anyone know if adaptive suspension is a must have?

Why dont you check the configurator on BMW's website - this gives all the prices and you can spec the car as you have and see what the full cost would be - simples.

BBB888, the basic price for the 5 door (as of Jan onwards) is £29,845. The OTR (including the things I broke down in my last post) is £31,085

Got my first glimpse of one at the works carpark today. Stunning car in the flesh, another cracker from BMW.

Just called by the dealer I purchased from today to speak about winter tyres. Because of the discounts he can do he has sold 6 M135i cars this month. He was just processing another order to Devon. (Other Pheaders who have ordered from him may wish to update). You can ignore the delivery charge, as rightly pointed out this is broken down in the price similar to a Ryan air flight, basically tells you thats the price delivered from Germany.I think UK delivery is about £150ish which given the 10+% saving is a no brainer.

I have now done 1000 miles in mine and its running in a treat.

I've just sent an enquiry through to broker4cars for the spec I'm after. Chopping in the M5 as a deposit leaves a very reasonable monthly payment by their calculations.

Now to see if anyone can better the deal when they eventually get back to me.

I think that's the same as the seal & protect. You don't have the choice not to have that done (even though I'll be putting an extra sealant on mine). I am one of the 6. Still waiting for my build date but I'm assured everything is going through and I'm hoping to have it here before Christmas.

I've chosen not to go for home delivery. The 200 mile drive home is part of the running in period for me.

Can BMW dealers offer a 0% finance on HP at all? Is there a minimum deposit for this?

0% deals generally seem to be a smoke and mirrors trick because more often than not they require you to pay full RRP for the car, so what you save in interest you can lose by paying over the odds to start with.

BMW were offering a 4.9% PCP deal on the M135i which you could negotiate price on and included a £1600 dealer contribution, but that rate finished at the end of December I think, now significantly higher.

Of course the APR is just one part of the deal tongue out

Was that £1600 on top of the 9ish% discount they're offering? Is (was?) the HP rate the same (if they offer such).

Not sure but I got that impression from the thread I read on BabyBMW, that people were getting 8-10% discount plus dealer contribution. Not sure what the deal is now.

Low rate finance only relates to PCP not HP.

BMW dont offer a deposit contribution on the 1 series so the deal comes down to how much discount you get in the metal.
