#514 of 2444 Is this deal worth it? (in Dallas)
Dec 03, 2005 (11:30 pm)
I am looking for a 2006 4.4 X5. A local dealer offered $2000 off $60,245 for the following configuration:
2006 X5 4.4i
Cold weather package
Rear climate package
Heated Steering Wheel
Premium Hi Fi System
18 or 19" wheels (not sure which one)
1. The MSRP says $60,245 - Is this accurate? How low should one ask for?
2. One of the other forums on this board has whole bunch of people crying out about the problems with X5 .. how common are these? This is my first BMW, and after investing $60K in a car, the last thing I want is regular trip to dealer!
3. Any other insights?
Thanks! Homer ..

To question #1, I believe each dealer is charged a fee for training/advertising called MACO??? on top of invoice. It was $300 when I bought our X5, but is different in other areas of the country. Besides that, everything else listed as invoice here, or on any other website, was correct. Obviously, the dealer could choose to absorb this cost, but don't count on it.

No packages with manual transmission?.... There are 0 in the entire country, including ones in production and in transit.
To get this vehicle, you would have to special order and probably give a L A R G E, non-refundable deposit... because the dealer does NOT want to get stuck with that. (And if you lease, he'll looove getting that back at lease turn-in... )

I just leased a...
2006 X5 3.0i
Cold weather pkg
Rear climate pkg
Heated steering wheel
for $643/mo. Sales price was $46694. The deal included a $300 transport fee since they didn't have the car on the lot. The initial "deal" was $700/mo. I found a much better deal ($655/mo) at a dealership a couple hours away on a slightly better car (Xenon lights & diming mirrors). My local dealer finally came down to match that same rate to the car they had, which came out to $643/mo.
It pays to shop around!

Hello all, I've been "lurking" here during my research phase, and it's finally time to post! As my 1994 740iL is about to roll over 200k miles, I've been shopping committedly for a 2002-3 X5 for about a month now among dealerships, private parties, used car lots (yuck). I'm located in the San Francisco Bay Area, and have been shopping as far as Arizona, Oregon & Nevada.
The used car lots were quickly eliminated as an option. Prices, lack of car records & trust-factor took care of that. Private Parties offered better pricing and records, but warranties were often on their last miles or months. For me, warranty is critical, as my 740 has taught me well! (Since warranty expired eons ago, I've spent more on maintenance than the car cost me originally!) So the Dealership CPOs were the most attractive, but there was little room for negotiation. However, the warranty offered (generally 2 years +/-) was enticing.
Just when I was about to purchase a Dealership CPO (02s and 03s ran $30-36k out the door, depending on mileage), I came across a private owner who had bought a Dealership Lease-return CPO in spring 2005 (8 months ago), and "got in over his head" on the loan. The car has the CPO warranty through Oct 2008/100k miles!
So here's what I've landed, and I think it's a fair deal. I hope the value-gurus here will agree!
2002 X5 3.0i
• Mileage: 53k
• BMW Certified/Extended Warranty
• Interior Color: Black/Grey Sport Leather
• Exterior Color: Steel Gray Metallic
• Transmission: Automatic/Steptronic
• PREMIUM Package
• SPORT Package
• REAR CLIMATE Package
• COLD WEATHER Package
*PREMIUM Package has power glass moon roof, wood trim, 6-way power passenger seat, adjustable rear seat back, rain-sensing windshield wipers, front climate control, on-board computer, leather upholstery
*SPORT Package has star spoke alloy wheels, M sport steering wheel, sport (self-leveling) suspension, anthracite headliner, sport seats (Leather)
*REAR CLIMATE Package has rear door sunblinds, rear climate controls, privacy glass
*COLD WEATHER Package has heated front seats, headlight washers, ski bag
EXCELLENT Condition- Clean CarFax reflects lease, then CPO.
I got the above for $24,500, including the factory warranty (original extended) through Oct 2008/100k. I'm a happy camper, I hope justifiably so! Look forward to your input.
#520 of 2444 Is this a good deal for a CPO in IL?

I am looking at buying a CPO and saw this vehicle at a dealer:
2004 X5 3.0i SAV - Price: $39,000
Titanium Silver Metallic
Cold Weather Package
Rear Climate Package
I am completely new to BMW and CPO. Anything in particular I should look for? How do I negotiate on the CPO price? What would be a fare price for me to pay?
