I'll check that later...I was expecting a separate detachable bag that I can carry with me.
Any idea on what the "iPodŽ and USB adapter" should be? Is it a cable or just the two input jacks in the center console.

I'm guessing it's just the jacks.... the cable is probably extra cost.. But, I'd check with the dealer.... I still listen to AM radio... lol

Was it 2013 model? How much was the eco credit?
I'm looking at a similar one. It will help me to finalize price.

I am looking at a lease on a 2013 BMW X5 5.0 liter (xDrive 50i). Do you know the residuals and money factors that would apply for a 36 month lease at 12,000 miles per year? What kind of discounts are you seeing on the sale prices for these cars in northern california?

You can get the BMW specified cable(s) on Ebay for less than $15 shipped. No advantage to the BMW branded ipod/USB adapter cable.
#2314 of 2444 price for 2012 x5D
Jul 27, 2012 (1:21 pm)
Trying to get an idea what should be a good price to pay for X5D I know there are incentives and rebates trying to get starting point

Hey there, your best bet on pricing depends on your particular spread of dealers and how competitive they are. I can tell you that if
Your looking for a "deal on a diesel" it's next to impossible now, unless you buy off the lot. 2013s haven't been released, and due to these massive
Incentives on the diesel 2012 stock is bone dry. However if you do find a vehicle that's in your specs couple helpful tools. 1) find out what the vehicle is equipped with and them go to BMWconfigs.com which gives u cost breakdown, with invoice and msrp. Your goal is to attain invoice-Ecocredit-team drive USA(only if you attended the event)-loyalaty cash (only for current bmwfs customers)- ultimate drive app(download the app from the app store)-usaa discount(if you use USAA INSURANCE AKA MEMEBRT OF ACTIVE OT RETIRED SERVICEMAN).
ECO CREDIT= 4500
Team drive credit= 1000
Good luck on finding the car of your dreams at a good price!

You are correct that 2013's haven't been released, but I found a few dealers that still have allotments to order custom built 2012's. That's what we did, and are picking up ours on September 5 at the BMW Performance Delivery Center in Spartanburg.
X5D; Black Sapphire; Oyster Interior
Sport Activity Package w/ 19" Wheels
MSRP was $63,845
We are paying roughly $1,000 over invoice, less $4,500 eco-credit, less $1,000 drive event for a net price of approximately $54,600. ($9,200 under MSRP) Cash deal, son no financing credits.
Not sure what the ultimate drive app discount of $750 is, but dealer said if anything else comes up, we can use it.
We might have been able to get a slightly better discount on an in stock model, but there were 0 out of 310 vehicles in a 500-750 mile radius that were exactly what we wanted. Adding an unwanted cold weather or premium sound package would have wiped out any savings and I wouldn't take one without the Sport Activity Package for any price.
The pick up at the Performance Center sounds like it will be a great time for me and my wife. BMW picks up hotel and meals. One way airfare from DC is under $100 each.
