#2395 of 2564 Opinions wanted on X5 Diesel Costco pricing
Dec 14, 2012 (8:35 am)
Any and all comments on the following are greatly appreciated. Here is what I recieved today from a dealer on Costco pricing:
2013 X5 Diesel: Costco arrangement is for $800 over invoice
MSRP Base: 56,700
Premium Pkg: 3,600
Cold Weather Pkg: 750
Prem. Sound: 950
Running Boards: 300
Space-Saver Spare: 150
Since he did not have any 2013s on the lot he figured MSRP at 7% above invoice (actual number will be verified), so his invoice figure was 59061. For some reason, his invoice+800 number was 59,761.27
Pretax 56,761.27 (eco credit of $3000 applied)
Dealer doc fee: 599
License and misc fees: 39
7% tax in my county: 61413.21
less holiday credit and loyalty 2250
Out the door: 59,163.21
How much better than $800 over invoice could I do assuming it's a car that the dealer would be ordering for me and is it correct that the holiday credit and loyalty credit come off after-tax rather than pre-tax. Also, shouldn't the eco credit be $4500 rather than $3000?
Thanks for any and all replies!

I think $800 over invoice on a customer ordered 2013 is a pretty good deal. Although the dealer doc fee of $599 is very high. That essentially makes the deal $1,400 over invoice which is not so good. My dealer charged $199.
Apparently the eco-credit has been reduced to $3,000 from $4,500. Sorry about that, but that's still better than the $2,500 it had been prior to May/June on the 2012's. I figured the $4,500 wouldn't last forever. Plus having a 2013 vs. 2012 MY is worth something extra at trade in or resale time.
You might want to add BMW Apps to your option list, IMO. Pretty cheap and a good way to integrate your i-phone or android to telemetrics.
All credits were taken off my pre-tax price, so push your dealer on that one. You are paying 7% tax on an extra $2,250; that's $157.50 that will fill the diesel tank a couple of times.

Wow, thanks so much for your very detailed answer. Unfortunately in Atlanta where I am all of the dealers seem to have their doc fee at $599 and are unwilling to change that line item. Maybe elsewhere there's room. I'll see what I can do but thanks again for the good advice.
Any opinion on whether premium sound pkg is worth $$ rather than standalone satellite? Upgraded stereo worth another $600?
#2398 of 2564 Finally Ordered!

Well, we finally did it! We ordered our new X5 Premium (gas). Our price was $200 over invoice. One thing to watch out for is that some dealers tried to sell me $X over invoice, but would try to charge retail for every option. My price was invoice for the car, invoice for every option/package, + $200. The MSRP is $65420. Our price came out to $60925. This includes the "new" ZC3 convenience package with the soft close doors (Edmunds is still listing the ZCV package, which is out of production), the luxury seating package, the technology package, premium sound package, running boards, BMW apps, Space-Saver Spare, BMW's handling fee of $895 and MACO fee of $380. Our dealer offers free any time car washes and free loaner cars, along with the normal maintenance, etc. We are thrilled with our purchase and would recommend them any time! I'm not sure if I'm allowed to share the dealer's information here, so PM me if you would like further. We are in Southern California. We decided to lease it through BMW, so we could take advantage of the holiday incentive of $1500 (after our price). Also, I read some posters are being charged a high doc fee. Ours is only $80. I hope this helps someone out.

Premium sound is really in the ears of the beholder. We didn't go for it as I thought the standard system was good enough and didn't hear that much of a difference. But you should listen for yourself.

No idea about the X5, but that looks like a very good price for the trade-in, especially for Chicago.

You should be looking at $500 over invoice BEFORE the various credits; well under invoice after applying: holiday, Eco, loyalty, etc.
