Test drive day.
Drove a 35d (2011) and a X5 Premium.
Liked the Premium. Deisel was littel more engine noise, felt needed a push in the begining.
Any how, Delar ready to offer at the Invoice price, no haggle yet. Told them will be back after test driving the Audi & Lexus.
Lexus GX felt like glorified truck. Audi Q5 with V4 was not that exciting, but the slaes man claims he is selling thme like a hot cake. Q7 was little bigger, nothign different than the Q5 except size. Lexus and Audi can really refine interiors. Feeels like same interiors as five years ago.

I did try to use the Amex system about a year ago and they were no where near net invoice...I got a better direct dealer $500 over invoice deal myself. I guess things have changed with them? What about the incentive credits you mentioned? Does Amex address customer loyalty credit, nav credit, etc?. Thanks for offering your expertise and help. Ttopper.

Yeah I too didn't like the 35d as it was just a little more noisier beside the power differential. If Dealer is ready to deal, hang on to them for a little longer as you're doing the right thing by testing other brands out. In the end, I would hand them two brand models and that it was the price that is in the way. X5 Premium, New ML350 and Q7 are good comparisons. Towards the end of the month is a good time to deal although not scientifically proven. Let me know what happens.

To be brutally honest, most dealers push these programs down and saying that it is impossible to match. Fact of the mater is that this is a good guidance as to what to expect and how honest the dealers can be. There is a dealer right now that is willing to deal with this price of Amex's. So I'll let you know once I push that through. With regards to does Amex offer their customer the incentives, you'll have to go on to the site I published earlier and price it out. In the incentives page, there is the option of including those two (who wouldn't) proving that that program is indeed genuine.

What discounts did you get?
Did you negotiate directly with the delaer or used websites like Amex Car buyign Program?

Discounts include eco credit $2500 and Nav credit $1730. The negotiation process was really simple, I wrote my configuration and a desired price to a local dealer, they accepted, so we made a deal. I didn't use Costco or Amex buying program, because Amex website has no 2012 X5 diesel yet. I recommend you try TrueCar.com, they are very professional and responsive, they help you compare price among several dealers.
