Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures.

Well BMW seems to be trying to shore up their slumping sales. We are being told that the new programs are going to be 0.9 Financing available on some 2009 models. The same financing as the outgoing 2008s! Below is what we think the rates are going to be. Of course it will be subject to some last minute change but this is pretty close.

2009s

.9%
328i and X Drive Sedan
335i and X Drive Sedan
all 5 series but not M5
X5s

1.9%
328i and X Drive Coupe
328i X Drive Convertible, Wagon
335i and X Drive Coupe
335i Convertible
650 Coupe and Convertible

3.9%
All M3s
M6s
M5
X3

0.9 Financing on 2009’s…?


ItalyonStylin: Here is another one for you bro. Shirm may be interested as well, as these are the two people that I know are currently looking for rides.

The best time to buy is after the new year. People will have spent a good deal of their "expendable" cash during the Holidays, creating some pretty sweet deals. I will be buying a new car in January-Feb.

Here's some more. Poop, looks like you're in luck
Infiniti offering 0% financing for 36 months on all '08 models


Quote:
The credit crunch is affecting sales for every auto manufacturer. Toyota dropped a major bombshell when it announced that it would offer zero-percent financing on 11 of its models, and did it again by extending that promotion through the end of November. BMW followed suit and has begun offering 0.9-percent financing on every single one of its vehicles, proving that higher-end luxury marques are not immune to the downturn in sales. Now, it's Infiniti's turn. As part of its year-end sales drive, Nissan's upmarket division will be offering no-interest financing on all remaining 2008 models for up to 36 months through Nissan Motor Acceptance Corp. The automaker surely hopes these incentives will spur sales, which were down about 30% last month when compared to last year. Time to go out and get yourself a deal on that new EX.

Actually buying just before the new year is the best time, as the dealership doesn't have to pay taxes on that inventory. Once Jan 1 rolls around, the dealer has to pay 1-2% tax on that car.

They are eager to sell just before the new year for this precise reason.

I am aware of that, but the auto industry hasn't seen a crisis like this...ever? So the people who can afford to buy a car will take advantage of the deals during the next two months. After the New Year, no one will be buying anything. The auto industry is only going to sink into a deeper hole for 09', making them desperate for sales.

2010 won't have the same deals because the auto makers have recognized the sales decline and have reacted by vastly reducing production. Most 2009 models were built in early 2008, so the factories produced their normal output numbers. But the vehicles are arriving at the dealerships in a crumbling economy with no consumer demand for automobiles. So once the 2008's are gone, there is going to be a LOT of 2009 models collecting dust.

What are you leaning towards at this point? Working with a short list?
