Please I need Help in deceiding what is the best deal in Houston. I have been offered only 4500 off of MSRP of the X5 3.0 in 2008 and max of 2000 on 2009.
My budget is only max 50,000 to spent on a X5 3.0 so I decided on getting the preminum package and real climate control. I was told by the Sales Rep that is better to go with Prem. Package than Sport package and I should defenately go with the Premium. I like either black or white exterior and don't care for any other color. There is a 2008 black/black on their lot with no option on it except BMW assist, with the MSRP of $48,000. Is is wise for me to go with this car or not.
With this kind of discount should I go with 2008 vs. 2009 only for 2500 diference.
What is the best package I should add.
I appreciate your commentsa

The premium package is a must and included for free now anyway on 2008 models. I'm guessing because it is included for free, the cars which don't have the premium package will be difficult to sell.
In my opinion, the rear climate, ipod and tailgate are all things to consider as well.

Thank you for the info. Would you recommend 2008 or 2009 for 2500 difference?
How everyone is getting $6000 off of MSRP?
With Premium, rear climate, tailgate on 2009, what is the best to pay for 0.9 financing?

I would definitely go with an 09 if your only choice is an 08 demo or loaner. Dealer cars get used and abused during test drives and loans and although a few thousand miles might not be a lot in the life of the car, you are purchasing a luxury SUV and should not settle for a second hand car at close to new prices.
You can go on edmunds and look up the invoice of the car. Having just purchased and researched myself, you can get $1000-3000 below invoice on a new 08 which includes the premium package credit. On an 09 you are looking at close to invoice to $2000 above invoice.
If you can get a new 08, I would do that, there really isn't anything different on the 09 unless you get the Diesel or wait for the new I-drive in March.

I just went to the dealership today for an 09 X5 3.0 in upstate NY
With the premium pkg, cold weather pkg, rear climate pkg, technology pkg,
comfort access, 3rd row seat, running boards and ipod adaptor,
MSRP was 59,275 and I was offered 56,465 and the guy told me that
it is "about" 1,200 over the invoice.
Does it sound good to you guys?
I have no trade-ins by the way.

Had a similar quote, $1225 over invoice from Keeler. Which dealer quoted this in upstate NY? Of course I have no problem as long as both us have made a reasonable deal in this ecomony.
If it is the same dealer, may have to check on a couple others to know. We may wait until 2009 to see what happens as a result of the ecomony before we buy. Prices should only go down.
