I just got the Purchase Order for my 335is (ED Oct 11th). I can't believe what it says, to wit: "This offer shall constitute an irrevocable offer buy the Customer for a period of six weeks from the date of its receipt by... BMW NA ..., to purchase the vehicle .... Acceptance by BMW NA shall be made in the form of a Confirmation of Order in writing, which may be modified from time to time, in writing, by revision to the Confirmation of Order. In the event of a variance between the Order and the Confirmation, the terms of the acceptance contained in the Confirmation shall govern unless the Customer shall reject the Confirmation...within 10 days after receipt of he Confirmation.... Prices are subject to change without notice; and the price charged, notwithstanding the Purchase Order or the Confirmation(s) thereof, shall be the price valid at the time of delivery. All payments must be made prior to the confirmed date of delivery." Holy S**t! So, regardless of the Purchase Order I signed, and confirmation of its acceptance by BMW, I don't actually know the price of the car I am buying but am obligated to pay that unknown price 10 days before delivery at which time the price may change further! There's more: "... If BMW NA has not delivered the Vehicle in Munich within ten business days of the scheduled delivery date, the Customer shall be entitled to cancel this order, and BMW NA shall refund to the Customer the amounts paid on account of this order, without any interest; except however, that where delivery is delayed by reason of causes beyond the control of BMW NA, the Customer shall be entitled to cancel this order, only after delay of more than one month, and BMW NA shall refund the amounts paid on account thereof without any interest." "BMW NA shall not be liable for any expenses incurred by the Customer in connection with the Customer's journey to the place of delivery including, but not limited to, travel meals, accommodations, telephone calls, and the like while at the place of delivery' or penalties or cancellation fees for missed hotel and transportation reservations; or for incrased costs for traveling in Europe or journeying from the place of delivery to the Customer's residence regardless of whether any or all of such expenses may have been caused by BMW NA's delay in delivery, non-delivery, or the Customer's non-acceptance of the Vehicle...." So now BMW is absolving itself of any damage claims if it fails to deliver the car as promised so I will be out the travel costs, and possibly the Vehicle itself, since I can't hang out in Europe for up to a month waiting for them to make good on delivery. Finally, there is this little tidbit: In the event the Vehicle ordered is discontinued in production, or materlally altered with respect to the design thereof, after the date of the Confirmation of Order, the Customer shall have the option of accepting delivery of a replacement vehicle ..., if such delivery is offered by BMW NA or accepting a refund without interest of the amounts paid by the Customer...." So now I don't even know what I am buying and when I show up at the Welt they may offer me a rebadged Yugo. Of course, I can refuse - and absorb all of my travel costs. This contract is pretty outrageous. I know what some of you will say. BMW has seldom exercised this right so the risk is small. Yeah? Then why doesn't BMW bear that risk? Has anyone tried negotiating the removal of these one-sided conditions? Maybe BMW CCA should approach BMW on behalf of its membership. These freaking Germans! I am seriously thinking of cancelling this order and just reordering the same car for US delivery. I know I can drive a harder bargain than I did on the ED order. This is a downside to ED that nobody has ever mentioned.
