The San Diego BMW dealer just gave me a pricing quote on a 2018 G310GS. He told me all of his inventory was covered by the "Stop Sale" order.
In addition to MSRP and Destination fees, this dealer represented that he "Had To" charge me a $492 Handling and Setup Fee, Plus a $3.50 Tire Fee, for a total cost before tax and licence of $6,435.50.
Calif Tax and License brought the Total Price to $7,264.18
I wasn't feeling good about this local salesman, so I said I wanted to think about his offer. I may have to visit additional dealers.
Are the Handling and Tire fees " normal"?
What have other recently been quoted?
Seemed Very strange, since his inventory was under a Stop Sale order.
Your comments are appreciated.
First off the stop sale actually means they cannot deliver to the customer, but they can still sell them.
Secondly, handling and tire fees are normal charges.
Now, you could negotiate and haggle a better deal, especially in the current situation of the stop sale.
Maybe you should buy one in Canada, with the exchange rate the way it is you could save a lot.
Then when the fix is done, have a nice drive down the Pacific Coast Highway home.
