Has anyone been able to get a discount from the dealership in the purchase of their new F56?
I´m pushing my dealership for a discount due to 3 missed delivery dates but they say there are no discounts authorized for the new mini
Unfortunately I´m located in Mexico... I got almost a 2% discount and they are saying that´s all they can do. I actually told them that if they didn´t give me more discount I would cancell my order and guess what? the general manager said OK, we´ll cancel it. I really want the car hehe
In my city there is only ONE mini dealership, I guess they use it to their advantage...
I´m very frustrated... Oh, one more thing: My car arrived last thursday, had a scratch.. they took it to the body shop repainted that piece and don´t want to give me anything for the troubles.
The only reason i´m sticking with mini is because i really love the car
I actually called mini mexico 800 number... their answer to all of this was we can´t help you because this is a CUSTOMER SERVICE, and I´m not a customer yet due to the fact that I haven´t purchased the car. I just gave them a cashier check in order to separate the car. It´s really a bad service
I had a problem with Mini Customer service too with my delay - it will be 5 months instead of 2 instead of 3 before my Mini comes - I nearly had an argument with them before I stopped and escalated the problem to BMW - it worked got my £300 credit so it worked
Of course I know it won't be equal service in Mexico but that doesn't allow anyone to be rude - at the end it's about the brand - and no one is doing a good job protecting it.
The only "good" thing is that the general manager of my dealership was fired yesterday (never like when someone losses their job, but if you don´t know how to do your job well you had it coming)... I think my call to mini mexico worked for something. Hopefully the new manager if not for me but for future customers will give a better service.
I´m still trying to push for something (discount, accesories anything), but I made up my mind that I won´t get much... The "good" thing is that we have 3 years of free maintenance. I don´t know if that´s standard for all countries.
Good question! I have always wondering why there was nobody talking about price paid and now we finally have this thread.
I paid MSRP in SF Bay Area I was willing to paid at MSRP because truecar.com indicated that it's only $US200-300 below MSRP for a dealer inventory car. I thought it may be true that no discount for a custom order car. Did I make a mistake? The dealer verbally told me the $1000 deposit is refundable and it hasn't be deposited after 2 weeks.
