If you’re shopping around for a brand-new or used BMW, you know approximately how much you are going to have to spend. Whether you’re planning on paying for this vehicle in cash out right or you’re going to finance, you still want to get the best deal possible.
While Bimmex is focused on helping BMW owners get the best service for their vehicle, they also want to make sure anyone looking at purchasing a BMW gets the best deal possible. Here are a number of strategies that can help you do just that.
Strategy #1: Shop around.
If you go to one particular dealer you may not know what another dealer is offering the same vehicle with the same features for. That reduces your ability to haggle and get the best price on it.
When you shop around, including checking out what other dealerships in different regions across the country are offering the same vehicle for, that empowers you to know exactly how much you should be paying for your car.
Strategy #2: Be willing to walk away.
When a salesperson has been working with you for quite some time, going with you on various test drives, answering a number of questions, and more, they have something invested in you. You also have something invested as well.
If you’re willing to walk away from any potential deal, it puts the power in your hands. While you certainly want that BMW, you also know you can get the same exact one somewhere else.
By being willing to walk away, it will push the salesperson to do whatever he or she can to make sure you get the best possible deal.
Strategy #3: your budget limit.
When you shop around and know how much the car is going to cost, you should establish your absolute highest amount that you’re going to pay for it. Even if the ‘lowest possible price’ the salesperson comes back with is $200 more than your limit, don’t go over it. You should be able to get your car, your BMW, for the price you’re willing to pay.
