Got a decent discount

I spent 3 hours this morning at my local dealer discussing an order for a manual LBB M2, fully optioned after test driving an M235i and being disillusioned with its softness. He started off telling me that there was such strong demand for the car that discounts were not being offered. I managed to get him to 3%, then 5% and finally 6% through a mixture of good humour and inimitable charm... but also by showing him that the car was available in Germany for 8% less than in France and that I would simply go and buy it in Germany if necessary. I'm very pleased with the result ! He couldn't give me a delivery date but it's probably mid 2017.

Well done,the gallic charm in action never fails
Not even a sniff of a discount over here even if I did get my wife to go in first and play the charm card,but then she's not French s'il vous plait

Perhaps you should come over here and help us out a bit !

Send her again but this time in skintight black leather jeans and high heel boots and it should work ;-) Then she has to keep cheekily suggesting that the salesman might like to make an effort and offer this, that and the other option free of charge and that he's a rotten beast if he says no.
