Hi everyone, I wanted to tell everyone how you can take steps to ensure you get your 1.9% rate honored:

My wife and I went to the dealership, and they were playing hardball on not budging from 2.9%. We eventually had to tell them to call BMW FS. We basically laid out that they were on grounds for us filing a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. We had the CFPB website pulled with the article, showing what they were doing was exactly what the CFPB could fine them for.

Eventually, they caved in. If there are enough complaints for those who still won't get the 1.9% honored, then I'd file a CFPB complaint. If there are enough complaints, you all could get rewards for the damage from the misleading advertisement.

I am a US member. Great Job! You did exactly what we did, but without the same amount of hassle. We pre-ordered on 8/18/2021. I brought the online 1.9% interest rate advertisement from BMW Financial when I accepted delivery of my iX50 on 6/3/2022. My husband also got the same 1.9% when he accepted delivery of his iX 50 on 6/30/2022. This is my third BMW purchase through BMW Financial Services and my husband's second at the same dealership. We live in MD which has really good consumer protection laws here, including "Lemon Law" protection. Visit your State's Attorney General's website to find out your rights when purchasing an automobile.
