As of now, I am planning to pick up the vehicle from SC. I still have another week or so to make that decision.
If you can swing it, I can guarantee you won't regret it. I had a 911S for 5.5 years and learned more about how to drive a car properly in 4 hours at the Performance Delivery Center. Skidpad, anti-lock brake strip, mini-formula one course...all with professional racing instructors giving you tips. Plus taking the X5d (theirs, not yours) over their off road course will really show you what all those hill descent and hill hold buttons do, along with the x-drive, etc. It really is the only way to truly appreciate BMW engineering. And the price - free - is hard to beat.
They run a first class operation, from picking you up at the airport in an X6 to dinner and room at the Marriott, to the one-on-one delivery of your vehicle in a private showroom. Damn, I'm nearly talking myself into getting a BMW M3 instead of the Cayman S I have on order!

#2413 of 2444 extended warranty/maintenance
Jan 04, 2013 (12:24 pm)
standard is only up to 4 yrs/50k. Anyone buys extended one? if yes, how much for each?

I declined the extended warranty/maintenance option. Was quoted $3,217 for the extended warranty and $2,495 for the extended service. Ridiculous prices, IMO, given that it's only 2 more years, unless you are a higher mileage driver (12,500+ miles per year). I had no intention of purchasing so I didn't haggle and they knew better than to hard sell me.
We have a good independent mechanic that would be 30-40% less than dealer charges for routine oil changes, fluids, brakes, alignment, etc. And does not pad the service with unnecessary repairs. The only thing I would be concerned about would be a major out of warranty repair in years 5 or 6, and I figured I'd take my chances. There are other reputable third party warranties that my mechanic recommended if I get nervous between now and the 4/50 factory warranty expiration.

Can you please share with me the contact info of your dealer. I want to custom order a X5. Thank you.
I am not sure how to PM you.
#2417 of 2444 The tax is included or exclued when yours talking about the pirce?
Jan 12, 2013 (5:22 pm)
I'm looking for a X5 xDrive35i, the dealer offer me: INVOICE price + destination fee($695) + $500 + tax. Does it is a good deal?
Just want to confirm with yours that when yours talking about the price, the tax is include or extra?
BTW: It's in Houston, TX. The sales is very nice.

I couldn't figure out how to send you a private message, either. Send me an e-mail with "need BMW dealer" in the subject line. To prevent spam, I'm writing my address backwards (hope that works!): moc.loa920tl
I'll respond to you with all the info as soon as I get it.
This goes for anyone else who wants the info. We're very happy with our new car and the dealer I dealt with was very honest.
