#319 of 2444 Re: Fair price for a 2005 X5 4.4i [ca_man]
Jul 10, 2005 (2:22 am)
I just purchased an 2005 X5 4.4i for $64,250 out the door.......MSRP on it was $62,695. It has sport, premium, rear climate, & cold weather packages with nav & 19" rims. The invoice I saw on the dealer computer showed $57,810, and I got it for $58,890 before tax and reg. I think I got a decent deal...probably could have gotten a better deal if I didn't know the guy and was willing to walk away, but I REALLY did want to get the car right then and there. You might be able to get a better deal, maybe $500 over invoice, if you order it and are willing to wait the 6-8 weeks it takes to build one. I tried to see if they would do it $500 over invoice, but even the volume dealer in the Los Angeles County(Pacific BMW in Glendale) said they can't do that. Hopefully that helps.

#323 of 2444 Buying in Chicago - Good Price????
Jul 13, 2005 (6:50 pm)
Looking at an X5-3.0 - Premium/Cold/Heated Stearing/Rear Heat *after all it is cold up here in the winter*
MSRP is $48,570
Sell: $45,970 ($2600 off of MSRP)
On a 39 month term with 12,000 miles per year and $0 down, payments are $688. This is based on a 61% residual and an APR of 4.5% and includes all sales tax, license and title. Literally $0 out of pocket at lease signing - includes tax, title registration. No security or first payment required. There is no acquisition fee. For every $1k we could/would put down the payment would go down $30.00/month.
This is Owners Choice financing offered by BMW, basically a baloon. At the end of term you have 3 options, pony up the cash, refinance or turn in.
In Chicago on any lease, we have to pay 9% sales tax on the sell price of the car. We also have to add an additional 6% to every monthly payment for a City of Chicago Lease tax. We are looking at this because of the tax issues described above.
#324 of 2444 BMW X5 Lease Offer
Jul 19, 2005 (6:47 pm)
Based on the info that is on the website of BMW, I should be able to get X5 3.0i ( MSRP ~43000 ) for 426/month. Based on that, I can assume that they are using the following to calculate the lease
1. Residual - 69%
2. MF 0.00125
and the same holds for 4.4i as well. ( Using 56000 as the price ). Since the dealers in MA are willing to offer 3% over invoice without any haggle, I am planning to offer the following to the dealer
MSRP - $57,145
Invoice - $52,600
My Offer ( Adjusted Cap Cost )- 54178
Down payment - $2500
Trade In $3500
Residual - 69% ( 38640 )
Sales Tax 5%
Monthly Payment - ~435/month
Does this looks right - Based on what BMW finance is offering on BMW X5 lease. ( www.bmwusa.com)

If you could wait, would you until August possibly September for an X5 on a lease? Also, is there any hope at all of the leasing of 06 3 series coming down?

The residuals aren't 69%... What you aren't taking into account is the selling price is discounted from MSRP... (Of course, they don't tell you what the selling price is, in their example).

Hard to say.. Sometimes incentives switch to cash, instead of good lease rates, and the leases get more expensive.. especially at the end of the model year... Pretty darn good 39 month lease specials right now on the X5..
3-series? Price increase coming up on September 1st... that will probably negate any lease help that might be coming..
