    GTL Exclusive Price
    « on: 2014-03-16 17:14:51 »
    Hello all,
      I rode my first BMW GTL Exclusive yesterday.  This was quite a change coming from a Harley Davidson VRod.  Regardless, I am probably going to purchase this bike.

    What are you all hearing for a price on this bike?  The dealer wants full MSRP, plus destination, plus doc fee.  He wouldn't budge a bit.  And, he let me walk out the door with my checkbook in hand.  Invoice on this bike is about $26,300.

    Thanks for any input.

      Over here $26300 would be a steal and I wouldn't blink to get one. In The Netherlands the GTL Exclusive is € 34,500 which at the current exchange rate is $ 46,623. My GT is already more than $ 36,000. That's what our national taxes do for you. AFAIK they will not budge with the price, but might throw in a discount on accessories or BMW clothing,

        Dealers are not going to get many Exclusive models so I would be surprised if there was any negotiation on price.

          BMW Motorcade USA gives a price starting from $29,960.  That's still a lot less than over here. Buy it quick before he changes his mind.

            US prices don't include local sales tax and tags and title. If you compared the UK price without the VAT with the US price I don't think there would be a great deal of difference.

              So some dealer quoting $27K, BMW USA quoting nearly $30K.  Wonder how much they really cost over there.

                The basic price of the Exclusive in the UK before tax is £18371. At the current tourist rate of $1.62 to the £ that is $29761.

                  I just figured it out as well.  So the same depending on their tax.
