#1259 of 2558 Re: 2009 BMW X5 3.0i [suv4x4]

I have checked few dealership here in Northern NJ, and most fair price you can get for a Gas version 09 X5 (for whatever the option you put on) is few hundred over the invoice price.
Dealers will tell you there is no rebate or incentive for X5 (gas) right now, and of cause they won't tell you their month end and qtr end sales bonus for meeting the sales targets. It also will affect how many hot selling models the dealer will get for the next qtr. IE. the more they sell the more they will get them.
Another factor is for some reason X5 is hot right now, two out of five dealers I check told me they only have few at their lot and they are not willing to move them at lower price due to it is in hot demand.
I personally think there at least two reasons. One due to a low APR (2.9%) which made this SUV more affordable (BMW select will move the monthly payment even lower, although you will face a big final bill at end of your term). 2nd, X5 it is a nice SUV for its handling and size, this is the third year of this new model so many bugs had been fixed. This is just my take and I could be totally wrong.
So what does it mean? if you get few hundred above the invoice price then it is a fair deal (notice I didn't say a good/great deal), if you want something more than that, you have two options: 1. Just wait. once the 2010 model come in dealer will be willing to move the 09 model at a discount (that is if they have any left on their lot). 2. Get a used one (Exce Demo or showroom Demo). you pay few grand less for a lower mil "new" X5.
Hope my two cents helps and to all the X5 buyers out there want to save some money like me. Good Luck.

Just picked mine up today. It is truly a blessing. This X5 diesel drives and looks amazing......My salesperson stated the demand is really picking up and they are starting not to have them without special order. I hope you all make really good deals, and know that it worth whatever you pay. Lastly if you are in the Atlanta area check out Internet Sales team at South Atlanta BMW.....

Edmunds' TMV for the Bay Area is actually lower than that for gadcar's area, but I guess no dealership here is willing to go 10k below MSRP.
Which dealership did you use? I looked around that there are not many 35d to choose from. The best I've heard so far is about 8k below MSRP (61k).

Dealers in the SF Bay Area don't have many 35d in stock. I searched the whole norcal but didn't see a car I wanted. I guess I'll have to go with special order or simply give up for now...
Will a salesperson make the same amount of money or more if s/he takes a special order from me?

Hi huj089, Could you tell me what you paid for your X5 35D? I just got an estimate for a similar car minus the HD radio, Satellite Radio, and Smartphone integration for around 53K; however since it would be a trade from a different dealer they are not offering me the rebate. That was whole point for the deisel. Do you like it better than the gas models?
Thanks for your input.

Oh I'm still shopping around. I'll see if I can get an offer similar to that of gadcar's. It looks that the $4500 incentive really helped the dealers...
I'm not an environmentalist per se, but my next car has to be fuel efficient. At this point, diesel is my choice.
#1265 of 2558 Diesel purchase incentives
Aug 14, 2009 (5:21 pm)
BMW just announced the continuation of the eco-credit of $4,500. from corporate to the dealers on the 2010 x-5 35D - if you order prior to the close of business on 8/31/09. The order will go into production - which will take 5 to 6 weeks till you get the vehicle. 2010 prices are out also. Base price remains the same as the 2009 price - and you get the new idrive as well as the same front bumper from the 4.8 with the sport package. Not sure about the pricing on the packages yet. Get moving folks!

Do you have any additional reference on 2010 x5-35d ? I couldn't find much information on the net on changes to 2010. Any input on the invoice prices for this, plus options ? Also does the 1800$ credit applicable to this ?
I have been offered - $50740 with the following options for a 2010
- premium package, rear climate, ipod, heated front seats
Any inputs ?

Hi jlsa- Thanks for the update on the 2010 eco-credit extension from BMW. Do you have a link or any additional info. on this. The guy I have been talking to at the dealer here in Denver does not seem to know about uch in terms of 2010 models and incentives. He may not have gotten the info. yet. Regardless, I would be very interested in getting into a 2010 model especially if the credit is extended etc.
Thanks for the info.

Another source to check out is xoutpost.com. Some have pricing (retail) on the '10s. So far, I've seen someone get $1,000 over invoice, then receive the $4,500 in addition, so $3,500 below invoice. Hope this helps.
