Help Buying an X1 (first new car purchase)!
I've been spying on this forum for quite awhile and have decided to buy an X1! This will be my first new car purchase, so I am totally clueless. I live in San Francisco and have decided upon an X1 Xdrive28i with metallic paint, the ultimate package, and the xline options. MSRP is 42,345 and the invoice price is 39,120.
My plan was to email dealers and see what kind of offers I can get. Also, have found a few similar cars (not quite what we wanted) and will make offers on those. Then, I will go into the dealer I want to purchase from and see what I can get and see if my offers can help lower the price. I am expecting to pay about 1k over invoice, from what you guys have gotten. Also, I plan on paying in cash and in full, with no financing, so should that help lower the price? Will ordering a car change negotiating? I plan on going in after Christmas, in hopes of snagging a good deal. Any and all advice helps, I am completely new to this!
