Lulu the dog says, “This New Electric BMW is good as Tesla.”

BMW is releasing two new electric vehicles this year: the BMW i3 and the BMW i8. And by the tone of early reviews, they may have a serious competitor for leading sustainable cars. The i8 is definitely out of range for most household budgets in New Jersey and the rest of the country, with a listing price of $135,925. The i3 however, is a much more accessible vehicle priced at $41,350 and is being reviewed as a potential Tesla Model S alternative. Whether or not this vehicle outsells Tesla, we all know that BMW delivers when it comes to expert craftsmanship, handling, and performance.

Take a look at this track test for the BMW i3, and stay on the lookout for potential discounts at NJ Car Coupons.

Car Coupons Make for Easy Negotiating at the Dealership

negotiating with car salesmen Most of us have a natural aversion to buying a car. Shady used car salesmen and hidden charges from dealerships have turned us all off at some point. In fact, a recent Gallup poll found that a car salesperson is the least trustworthy profession in the United States (right behind Congressmen). While there are certainly some bad apples, this is an unfair generalization.

The fact is that car salesmen don’t have it that easy. Which puts them in a position to make significant deals with customers who inquire and prod. Car dealerships face significant obstacles when turning a profit, earning “an average pretax profit margin of 2.2%” on new vehicles. Which is why they are turning to new strategies for marketing cars and getting new customers. Continue reading
