BMW X5, SUV
#16 of 2562 Pulled the trigger
Jan 15, 2004 (9:24 pm)
My Dad ordered his first BMW today! He's getting a 2004 Sterling Gray/Black Leather X5 3.0iA with Steptronic (iA), Cold Weather, Rear Climate, Lumbar, Xenon, Premium Package, and Sport Package.
He ended up paying $1000 over invoice after a few days of back and forth negotiations which comes out to $48,845.
He's going to lease the X5 for 42 months including 20K miles per year, NYC taxes rolled in, 51% residual, and 5.16% interest (money factor) with a $0 cap cost reduction. Payments are going to be $835/month.
This may seem high to some, but with the 20K per year mileage the residual is lower compared to a 10, 12, or 15K per year lease.
I worked with Wide World of Cars in SPring Valley, NY and are very pleased with the results.
#17 of 2562 4.4i price and delivery
Feb 10, 2004 (9:51 am)
I'm getting $2,500.00 off the MSRP of $60,590 on a 4.4. Should I go ahead?
This will have to be ordered. Any one with similar experience could tell me how long does it actually take for delivery. Is it 4-6 weeks?

#19 of 2562 Just purchased 2004 X5 4.4i
Feb 25, 2004 (6:53 pm)
Just made the purchase on a 2004 X5 4.4i with Primer, CD changer, Cold weather, real climate, heated steering wheel and real seat, parking distance control and Navigation. Paid Total of $45305 out the door with my trade in of 99 Lexus RX300. I think it is a fair deal in my area. The only frustration that I have is to locate the color that I want (silver/gray). According the search result, there are only 8 X5 with such configuration available (varies colors), I might have to wait for the new build order, and it could take up to six weeks. Since I have waited that long to made the purchase, it will be fine to wait for a little longer.....

#21 of 2562 X5 Lease Offer
Mar 23, 2004 (6:27 pm)
I am planning on getting an X5, but I am unsure if I should press the button.
The car is equipped with:
Rear Climate Control
Cold Weather Package
Steptronic Automatic Trans.
I am getting the car for $599/month, for 42 months, with a $2100 cap cost reduction (down payment).
#22 of 2562 $2100 Cap Cost reduction?
Mar 23, 2004 (9:48 pm)
Why are you going to give them $2100? All you're doing is lowering your monthly payment by $50. If your X5 gets stolen or wrecked before the lease is up, you lose that $2100. Does the $599 include Tax as well?
Mar 23, 2004 (10:42 pm)
I have to give the $2100 down, because of the company's lease agreement. The monthly payments cannot go above $600/month, which is why I am offering a $2100 down payment.
The X5 is a titanium silver with gray leather.
However, the vehicle has been on the lot since December of 03', and I am still hesitant if I should take the car, considering it is not equipped with the Xenons.
One of the real gripes of this car, is that I feel it was equipped wrong-I think the titanium silver, fully loaded with a MSRP of around 49k having no xenons was a bad build.
Whats everyone's take on this?
Mar 24, 2004 (12:20 pm)
Whoops, I forgot to say, but tax is included in the 599 price.
#25 of 2562 If the car isn't optioned
Mar 24, 2004 (8:40 pm)
how you like it, then don't take it! $50K is a significant amount of money to plop down on a vehicle that isn't really what you want.
