#1608 of 2444 Need help/advice buying my first BMW X5
Aug 05, 2010 (4:35 am)
I'm about to bit the bullet and purchase my first BMW. It's a CPO 2008 X5 fully loaded and I mean fully, has everything including rear entertainment. Only thing that's bugging me is that the mileage is 37K and they are selling it to me for $45,000. Is this a good deal?? or should I look into getting a newer one with less mileage?? Any advice would be appreciated. I am suppose to go in tomorrow with my check in hand. BTW. the interest rate they are giving me is 5.9% and i'm putting $25,000 down.

#1610 of 2444 so, how much off msrp?
Aug 12, 2010 (4:29 am)
I've been reading these posts and am still wondering how much off MSRP one can negotiate on X5 premium. When I build it online the MSRP is $60,175, how low can I get a dealer in the Houston area to go? Is is better to negotiate this part first and then my trade in???

I just bought mine MSRP at $60,025 for $56,500 (~$800 over invoice). I saw someone paid $400 above invoice on this board. So, it should be around $56K-56.1K. You can find out the invoice price by checking kbb.com.
I would do the deal separately (negotiate the new car first, then the trade-in). else the dealership will ding you one way or the other by playing the #s game. they can make it look so good on paper but you end up paying $2K more. for Trade-in, check kbb.come for a fair value of your car. if you can get what kbb.com states, you are getting a good deal (usually, the market value is slightly lower).

Yes! any were from 3 to 4000.00 under invoice is good.
BMW has 10% of room to play with.

I guess you meant 3K - 4K less than MSRP. Right? Not Invoice.

Just picked up on 8/13 in the SF bay area. Paid $58,115 for a vehicle that has an MSRP of $67,275. Plus platinum BMW extended warranty for $4880. The vehicle was built to order.

#1616 of 2444 Purchase Price on 2011 X5 3.5i Premium
Aug 16, 2010 (7:45 pm)
Packages: technology, cold weather, convenience
Option: rear heated seat
Accessories: all-weather mats, cargo liner. (Note: cargo cover is a $700 dealer-installed accessory, not standard as in prior years, as cited in other posts; I decided it was unnecessary, so asked for liner instead.)
MSRP: $59,275, excluding accessories pricing, which they "threw in"
Sell price: $55,000 (before tax/registration) after $1,000 BMW America credit for test driving an X5 during Ultimate Driving Event at local dealer a couple of months ago
Buy/lease: buy, and probably take advantage of 0.9% financing for 24 months
Comments: very few X5's on MA dealers' lots, so had one ordered. Expect delivery in about 8 weeks or less. Without the $1,000 credit, deal was probably so-so, based on other posts, though I'm very curious about the particulars of the deal cited in post #1614.

Sounds like you did well and are satisfied. I'm happy for you. Since it appears to be head and shoulders better than any other pricing posted here, please help the rest of us with more details. Was it a premium trim line? What specific options/packages are included? Did you lease, and if so, what lease terms were included? Did you have a trade-in, and if so, what make/model/trim/year/condition? In what state are you located? Since you ordered it, sounds like it wasn't a demo. What is included in the platinum BMW extended warranty for $4,880? On the BMW website, an accessory is extended maintenance covering an additional 2 years or 50,000 miles (total 6 years, 100,000 miles) for an MSRP of $2,295. Does 'platinum' cover more or go longer?
