BMW Hi-Viz Air Shell Jacket on ebay

I just bought a BMW Air Shell Jacket on ebay from an authorized BMW dealer.

The buy it now price is $494.00 with the Optional Back Pad (no bargain there), but you can make a"Best Offer" (Not an Auction)

I first offered $350.00 they declined. They came back at $405.00 plus $15.00 shipping

Here at home I would have paid $494.00 plus tax of $46.93 for a total of $540.93

Saved $120.93 over buying it here at home. Or I may have been able to talk the local BMW dealer into $494 including tax.

If I found a source with free shipping on the web or talked my way out of the tax I would have saved about $75.00

Not a huge discount but they are Full price everywhere else I've looked and I have scoured the web!

I believe they have quite a few more if anyone is in the market.

Re: BMW Hi-Viz Air Shell Jacket on ebay

Thanks for this post. I've got a BMW Ralley 3 suit on my wish list for Christmas. Two BMW dealers within 50 miles, one never has any BMW clothing to look at or try on , the other will have maybe one suit to look at but always three times my size. I know BMW riding apparel is first rate but the prices are heart stopping to say the least.

There are usually ten to twenty BMW dealers listing Rally suits on eBay, always asking full price "buy it now". I've notice a few dealers will put in an option for the "best offer". It would good to her your experience with the best offer. With the economy the way it is now, it encouraging to hear that at least some of the dealers with try to work a deal on the apparel.

The shop is about 6 miles from my house. I was just there last week getting my 6k service done. BMW clothing in the store is at list price so good find on the bay. They are a good shop with excellent service, pricey but good.

I actually know some people who live closer to the "other" BMW dealer in metro Atlanta but go to Marietta for work & service.
