Re: New LT invoice price?
I don't think there is enough demand for a company making money publishing dealer cost on BMW motorcycles.
My local dealer would not budge on price, even when I offered to give him a deposit to order the bike and would pay for it within one week of it being ready to roll. I figured his return on investment would be close to infinity.
I bought my bike from a dealer in CA for less than list and they also offered to sell me any accessory I wanted at dealer cost.
Even with the shipping from CA to here I saved enough to pay for my first year's insurance cost, and saved 2% Tucson city sales tax.
If I was single at the time, I would have flown out to CA with the registration and ridden her back to AZ.
All I wanted was the local dealer to come close to what I could buy it for else where. His policy was one price for everyone. I can certainly understand his policy and respected it.
