#2338 of 2444 Car came in..interior color horrible
Oct 17, 2012 (5:49 pm)
Help. I ordered a 2013 X5 with Cinnamon brown interior. Picked it bc of website and a swatch at dealer. Car just came in and I swung by to take a peek before prep. Ugh. The interior looks more pink and orange than brown, it is horrible. I told the dealer I can't take it. They told me different die lots can create "slight" variances in color but it is what I ordered. I don't care, it looks horrible and for $60K, I should like it.
What do I do here? Carman?

The Cayenne S (not the GTS due to price) is the only other SUV that I've seriously considered, but the Cayenne is just too expensive. The Cayenne is significantly lighter than the X5 50i and only slightly less power (if you opt for for M performance package in the X5) so it feels more nimble in comparison, but I can't justify the extra expense. The X5 represents great value in this class of vehicle and strikes the right balance for me between performance and luxury. Unless I can realize substantial savings off the sticker for a 2013 X5, I will wait for the 2014. Thanks for your reply.
#2340 of 2444 Please suggest the price for X5 Premium
Oct 19, 2012 (10:23 am)
I live in Lorton, VA. And i need help in getting the right buying price for an X5 Premium with $63K MSRP. Dealer is offering for $60K out of the door. Please help.

I think it is a great deal. Dealers here in Atlanta can only offer $3500 off MSRP.

I think you can do better at BMW of Silver Spring than any northern Virginia dealer. I shopped them all - and PA, NC, NJ, DE - when we were shopping for our X5d which we ordered in late July and picked up in September. Your $63k MSRP looks like it would have an invoice price of $58,000 ($5k markup). I think you should be able to get it for $1k or a little better over invoice. Plus taxes and tags.
Two other suggestions:
(1) BMW of Silver Spring still has allocation slots for ordering a new 2012 X5d. And BMW is still offering a $4,500 eco-credit on the vehicle. That means you could order one exactly to your specifications - i.e. color and options - for about $1,500 less than a comparably equipped X5 3.5i. Our X5d had an MSRP of $63,845. Our price was $54,800. Black/Oyster, Sport Activity, Premium, etc. We only have 1,300 miles on it since September 5, but it is averaging nearly 30 mpg highway and we are very pleased with the decision. Audi, Mercedes and Porsche all charge a few thousand more for their diesel models, so the X5d is a relative bargain compared to those other brands. I would recommend you at least test drive the X5d to compare.
(2) Regardless of whether you go X5 3.5i or X5d, if you don't need the vehicle immediately, custom order it from the dealer for Performance Delivery Center pickup. It is a spectacular experience and you'll get to drive their X5 on a track behind M3's and on an off road course that would leave our old MDX broken into pieces. Tour of the factory and BMW museum included. Previous night in a Marriott hotel, dinner included. The cost to you is your airfare down ($61 from BWI). The experience is priceless. It is the ONLY way I will ever buy another BMW.

Your comments are very helpful to me.
I would like to get the same exact x5d as yours.
If you can give me the name of the rep in silver spring BMW then I will go get the same for $54,800.

I dealt directly with one of the sales managers. Don't think I am supposed to post names and direct phone number, but if you want to e-mail me, Im happy to provide and follow up with you off forum. I checked with them yesterday and they still have X5d build slots.

Let me know here if you have e-mailed me so I know to look for it. Thanks.
#2345 of 2444 Sharing Purchase Details for 2012 X5d
Oct 21, 2012 (1:13 pm)
Thought I would share my lease with the community:
2012 X5d (metallic black with cinnamon interior)
MSRP $68,105 (premium package, sport activity package, tech package, cold weather package, bmw apps, running boards)
Buy price $59,345 (includes $4500 diesel credit, $750 loyalty credit, $500 BMW Drive app credit)
$2200 drive off (1st payment, registration, acquisition fee, ad fees)
$711 monthly + tax
Overall I think it was a solid deal. Probably another ~$500 or so in there, but at a certain point its not worth the grind.
Good luck with your search.

I think you may have left something out on the options, as it looks like the MSRP for the vehicle you specified would be $66,295?
In any event, hope you enjoy your X5d as much as we do.

yes, it has lane departure warning, multi-contour seats and other stuff as well for $68K.
Coming from a 2009 X5 4.8 that was pretty well loaded. It's definitely not a quick (didn't expect it to be), but overall we are pleased with it so far.
