Pretty soon I'm looking to change my near 6 year old M140 for the new M240 xDrive. What sort of discount could I reasonably expect these days for buying cash? And who to order from? For example is Tony at TRL still offering decent discounts? I got my M140 from him. Apologies if I'm a bit out of the loop on these things... it's been a while :) Thx

Times have changed since the M140i days. People are sometimes waiting 12 months and more to get a car due to the limited supply.

Coast2coast advertise 3% discount on an M240i. There are no BMW finance contributions on any model, so there is no difference between cash or finance. Unless you have access to a discounted employee scheme I doubt you will do much better as dealers have more customers than available cars.

I can't speak for TRL but he doesn't advertise any deals at the moment. It's always worth checking with him in case he has a cancelled order and he will give you a no BS dealer perspective on how long you will have to wait to get a car.

With current supply chain delays (most manufacturers will take 12m to get you a car) you’ll have to fight for any discount unless you’re NHS/Armed forces.

carwow suggests max £1500 discount and that’s on par with my experience. People are walking into dealers and paying over RRP for used cars or full RRP for new cars that would have seen big discounts a year ago.

Fook! I really am out of the loop. Sheesh! Might well be keeping my M140 for a wee while longer until all this supply chain madness has calmed down. Or I might upgrade the chassis instead. It's got the diff. Thanks for the heads up chaps.

I got a small discount on both initial order (Dec '21) and a more recent one (for a new car, but cancelled order) - but speaking to my dealer when cancelling the initial order there's nothing available at the moment (and they couldn't even put a new order in as of 2 weeks ago).... Tough market out there!

If you get one you are going to be very very lucky. I tried last year when I ordered mine and got shown the official stance from BMW of..."there are no incentives". Luckily my old M240i was on ultra low mileage and the dealer snapped it off me and so I used that to get the price down (dead money really) and that car was sold within less than 24 hours. The used car market is dying now too, it pretty much died April 1st, especially in the BMW space.

I bought a BMW F750 bike in March, I had specced a new one, Motorrad told me I would be seeing it in about a year. I paid more for the bike with 150 miles on it than a new one.

Dealer targets are for cars registered so placing an order today has no bearing on Q2 targets unless it's a car in stock. That seems to be very rare ATM.

Well done for getting £3k off - I'm guessing that's 5-6%.

I haggled a bit today and got over 3k discount on a decent spec M240.

Absolutely you can get discount especially as dealerships approach the end of their first quarter next week ;)
But that’s not on a build allocation & god knows when that car would be delivered , I found a dealer with build slot for this September , as it was there last slot for this year they would not give any discount , you can just use carwow to get discount but it’s now well over 12 months delivery as the build will not be even allocated to the dealers yet .
