#594 of 2444 2003 BMW X5 32k miles, $29k
Feb 06, 2007 (12:56 pm)
I have the chance to buy out a lease on a BMW 4.4i X5 for $29,000 (plus sales tax).
It is in very very good condition, one owner. 32k miles, no dings/scratches. It does not have the premium package ( standard cd player and speakers)
It does have the winter package. I cannot think of any other info to post in asking for help.
The nearest BMW dealer has a similar BMW x5 on their lot for $35,995 (silver, with 40k miles and premium/navigation package)
Can anyone offer insight as to this being a good, bad or break even type of deal?
Thanks in advance.

Just got an 07 X5 from Concord BMW in NoCal... got 2k off pretty easily from the internet sales. Probably could have got more if I tried... Good luck
#596 of 2444 2007 X5 3.0 Prices?
Feb 13, 2007 (2:16 pm)
I'm considering a 2007 X5 3.0, base model black/black, leather and heated seats only. MSRP around $49k. Anyone know what it is really worth? I' m thinking $45k. I see a lot of them on the lot but none on the road.

It's because their leases are so terrible so they can't get rid of them if a consumer wants to lease, which comprises the majority of the purchasers.

MSRP of 60k., Residual at 61%, Money factor at .00210, Dowpayment including 1st month's payment at 5k... dealer said for 36 month lease with 10k miles per yr., lease would be approx. $740 per month plus tax.
#599 of 2444 Lexus to BMW Quality Degredation?
Feb 25, 2007 (9:23 am)
I am thinking of trading in my 2004 Lexus LS430 (rear wheel drive) for an X5 to go in the Pittsburgh snow. I am worried about quality. The Lexus is flawless. Will I get the same "don't even have to think about it" experience with a Bimmer? From what I read of the quality reports BMW is not anywhere near the Japanese.
I am not bashing BMW, but am wondering about this legitmate concern.

While I can't speak for the current (new) X5, I can tell you that my Dad currently leases an '04 X5 3.0iA. He's had it for a little over 3 years and his lease is up in August. With over 63,000 miles It has only been to the dealer 4 times: 18,000 miles for the first oil change(included in full maintenance), 37,000 miles for Inspection I (major service...included in full maintenance), 50,000 for 3rd oil change, replace front brake pads & rotors, (included in full maintenance) and a rear hatch latch that wouldn't close properly, 60,000 miles for new rear brake rotors & a half a quart of oil... He's due for Inspection II (major service) in about a month. It has been a flawless vehicle and lots of fun to drive.

I'm advised by my dealership the trailer hitch kit for the 2007 BMW X5 has some "technical issues" left to be resolved and no release date has been announced despite the fact over a thousand people have ordered them across the country. I'm not sure what you do if you want to pull your boat with this vehicle.
