#2318 of 2563 Plenty of X5d's....
Aug 07, 2012 (4:43 am)
...still left to be custom ordered and built for 2012 model.
After being told by several DC region dealers that all the 2012 X5D's were already on their lots or in transit, the dealer I ordered from indicated that they had multiple (more than 5) slots left for late August and September builds. They showed me official documentation from BMW that the 2012 X5D production dates continue to November 2012.
So if there are any prospective buyers out there not satisfied with what they see on dealer lots, I suggest you shop around for a dealer that can still custom order one to your exact color and equipment preferences. My deal was at $1,000 over invoice before all of the various credits. You may get a greater discount if you take a loaded vehicle off the lot, but if it's not exactly what you want, the custom order alternative is still an option.

I too am located in the DC (DMV) area. I'm looking to order/purchase a 2012 35d. What helpful hints can you give and what dealerships did you use.

We ordered our X5 through BMW of Silver Spring. We had originally placed an order through Otto's in West Chester PA, as they were extremely professional and courteous. But when we found out that Silver Spring had some allocations available, we cancelled with Otto's and went with them. From the research I've done, I'd stay away from VOB and Fairfax. I did my BMW Test Drive Event at Fairfax and their follow up was somewhere between horrific and non-existent. VOB had 20+ X5's in stock, not a single one with the sport activity package and claimed that you couldn't get one with it. Bozo's.
As far as helpful hints, as I stated in a previous post, if you have the ability to order to your specs, make sure you check out all the options and don't get talked into anything that isn't of value to you. IMO, the $1,500 premium audio package wasn't worth it - especially since with BMW Apps you can use your i-phone as a internet radio receiver for free.

Hope this helps.

Are you sure this is what you paid? What wad the price of the SUV agreed upon? What was the dealer in NYC? i am looking to buy one asap.
#2323 of 2563 Good deal or not?
Sep 20, 2012 (11:10 am)
I'm considering the 2013 X5 Sports Activity with 3rd row and the M Sport package with white exterior and black leather interior.
I think the invoice costs are:
X5 SAV: $53,085
3rd row: $1,545
M sport: $2,275
I'm a USAA member and I get a $2,500 discount. Negotiating up from $55,300 (invoice - USAA), I have one dealership willing to accept $56,995.
Is that fair? Can I do any better? Any help would be appreciated.

That's $1,700 over invoice. Not too bad, but the dealership I bought my X5d would probably be willing to order one to your exact specs for about $500 -700 less.
Either way, pick it up at the Performance Delivery Center in South Carolina if there is any way you can fit it into your schedule. Free service, but priceless experience.
#2325 of 2563 2013 price
Sep 25, 2012 (12:48 pm)
Can you post the final price for 2013 X35i premium and X35d you just got?
Just want to get the idea what is the reasonable price I should ask for during my ordering process?
any offers going on for 2012 or 2013 models?
#2326 of 2563 October Program for the X5?
