Quick question to see if you might be able to help as you seem very informed.
I am considering buying a brand-new 2007 X5 4.8. I cant seem to find any websites that still show 2007 invoice information, thus its proving difficult for me to determine what the best possible deal is I can get for taking a 2007 off their hands vs a 2008. Any ideas here?
Any help would appreciated.

Btw, why would you want a 2007? I'd strongly go with the 2008 model year. Especially if you want automatic tailgate. Plus IMO 2008 is slightly more reliable than the 2007 (from what I read on other forums). Makes sense since 2007 was first year version.
The TT V6 will eventually be added to the line. I truly hope it will happen for the 2009 year. Otherwise, I'll probably go with a MB ML or Porsche Cayenne instead. Personally prefer BMW's more. But pretty disappointing at this point.

I am not employed by BMW or anything, but am an avid BMW watcher/owner. I believe you'll see the TT3.0 and TT4.4 in the 2009 X5's to be released this summer (the X6 with those engines goes on sale in April and BMW to save cost likes to run the same engine across multiple models).

That is NOT entirely true. I used to think that as well, but there are numberous examples where this reasoning has not been used by BMW:
1) When the E46 M3 was introduced with 340hp, there was a one year lag time before the Z3 M coupe and roadsters changed from the original 240hp to the new engine in 318hp.
2) The iDrive on the current 7 is still very different and much more complicated than the modified ones introduced in the 5 and 6 series.
3) The 3 liter in the 5 series in 2005 got the revamped 26hp, while the 3 liter X5 (E50) stayed at the 225hp for the entire model run

I just signed on an X5. here are the details
X5 4.8. MSRP $75070....selling price $66600
Lease payments of $894 per month with upfront fees of 1) first month 2) Acq fee 3) Sales tax.
I was able to take advantage of the $2500 incentive on top of a selling price of $500 over invoice for a net of $2000 below invoice. My dealer has a plethora of 3.0 X5s ranging in MSRP from $46k to $60k so if anyone is interested, let me know via email. This deal is good through Feb 28 only

That sounds like a great deal! Way better than me...
2008 X5 4.8i, the details are as follows:
-COLD WEATHER PKG
-REAR CLIMATE PKG
-SPORT PKG W/ 20” WHEEL OPTION
-SAT AND HD RADIO
Dealer quote is $66,375.00
36 months / 10,000 mile Lease quote
$1,079.97 plus $2719.11 fees plus tax
What am i doing wrong? What dealer are you using making such a good lease and sales price? At that type of deal, I might just purchase.
#839 of 2444 What to do? What can I do better?

Ok, here is where I am...
In shopping for am X5 4.8, I have been presented with two options. Of course, I am trying to make a decision this month.
1) The dealer has a new 2007 X5 4.8 very well equipped. MSRP $73,370. Dealer of course wants to move it and the few remaining '07s. Offered it to me for $9,600 off, so $63,770. Yes, I know its an '07, but it loaded very well. I don't really care about the power lift gate or rear camera thats only available on the '08s. I get a new car ever 2-3 years, so this seems to be a decent amount off. *** I assume the $2500 rebate does not apply to this '07 (priority 3 car???)
on the flip side...
2) a 2008, again, nicely equipped. MSRP $72,620. Lease offer of: 36 mo 10k/yr $999/mo with $5,000 cash (includes taxes etc). I dont know what price is being used to determine this. I am told by my dealer this car has been a demo (priority 2 - center own use) and is also not able to reap the $2,500 incentive.
Both cars are fine and acceptable. I just am not sure which makes better since. This is not my best area. Can someone help? Insight? Does the incentive apply to the 07?
Thank you. Trying to decide quickly.
