I saw/read many reviews of the g20, but can't get over the rear design: looks very lexus/Hyundai for my liking. Will try to check it out in real life to see if it makes a difference

I know it is a fairly new car. However, is anyone aware of any discounts running on the G20(330i) for the Diwali season (Delhi-NCR region)? Last I checked they told me that currently there aren't any discounts but there might be something during the Diwali season.

The best will be to walk in with the check book. Mostly the dealership gets 6-7 % plus holdback at the end of Year. If they can share 3-4 % you should be ok. Remember the High discounts that we usually see on BMW cars are due to special offers from manufacturers, no dealer will have such margins without manufacturer support. That's the reason you will never see a crazy discount on a One & Half Crore Land Cruiser

If your running is not more, opt for 360 degree program. So even if the discounts increase later (which will in all probability) your losses will be low as you will get an assured value based on your current purchase price.

Any plans for BMW to launch the 340i in India and perhaps may be next year?

Considering Audi has the S4 and Mercedes with the C43 AMG, I think BMW should launch their M40i 3er.

The design looks so clean and uncluttered. But the price tag is stratospheric.

I booked myself a 330i yesterday, which is to be delivered in the next 10-12 days as per the dealership. I was in the market for a BS6 Sedan to replace my 2012 1.8 Laura TSI, with a 40-45 lakh budget and the only options were the 330i and the C-Class 220ds (there just aren't many BS6 vehicles around). I prefer BMW because of their DNA while as a brand, nothing comes close to Mercedes-Benz in that segment. I have a preference for performance petrols and it was the 330i which won. I also considered the X3 as an option, but for our smallish family and my personal preference the X3 was again not considered. Looking forward to the delivery. Current BMW and / or G20 owners, please let me know if there are things I should be careful before and while delivery outside of the PDI.

BTW Mods, when will be see an official review on team-bhp?

Please can you share the deal you got and the city you booked the car.

Better to share deals here directly so it can help others too. It doesnít in anyway jeopardise your deal since you deal has been closed. Infact it helps a brand/dealer sell more as discounted price would lure other readers.

Appreciate your point, though I am not worried about my deal getting jeopardised - I was requested to not share publicly and I gave my word.

Happy to share over PM. Overall I would say there is 4-6 lakhs of discount in the offing and it depends on which dealer, how desperate, where are they with respect to their targets, etc. Anything in this range would be a very good deal on a fairly new model overall.

Also, a couple of negotiation tips from my side:
1. Take a buddy with you - it's always good to negotiate as a duo instead of just one person.
2. Go in there early evening, and declare upfront that you are there to make it work.
3. You will never reach the final price in one go however hard you try. So take it slowly and don't be in a hurry.

That's an excellent discount on a newly launched BS-VI luxury petrol. Wish you all the best. What color is it please?

@tirtankard77: let us know the BLR offers? Unlike GGN/DEL, the BLR dealers think it's a privilege for customers to be allowed to walk into their showrooms.

Firstly, dealers always make you give them their word on public sharing just to make you feel that you have got by far the best deal as a special case. Itís part of their deal closing tactic for a feel good factor with the client.
Secondly, going morning evening etc doesnít matter. Infact Iíve never gone to the showroom. Best time to negotiate a sweet deal is last few days of the month. Infact, the best time of the year is this week because itís month end and year end!

Currently, you can get a flat 6 lac off on 3 series if you go with BMW finance. Even ROI is 7,9%. Maybe a lac more when it’s time to sign the check.
