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

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

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 2565 What to do? What can I do better?
Feb 26, 2008 (2:34 pm)
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.

Your Dealer sound like a scam artist. Here is why:
1) I punched in the numbers of your car, and you can get that same 2008 X5 for $888 per month, based on a selling price of $65500. So he is ripping you off of more than $100 per month. This is with NO down payment...just taxes and acquisition fee.
2) He is selling you the car at $69100 for you to be getting a $999 per month payment.
3) He is either misinformed or full of crap. Priority 2,3,4,5 ALL fall into the rebate/incentive of $2500. Only priority 1 (customer sold) cars cannot qualify. The other stipulation is the car has to have been in a dealer's inventory as of close of business on Feb 14th. It CAN be at another dealership and dealer swaps DO qualify, as long as its Priority 2,3,4,5 and in inventory as of Feb 14th

Just sent you an email.
FYI for others wanting to lease. Here is another tidbit factoid of the day. the Acquisition fee is another area where most BMW dealer make a profit. The posted Acquisition fee from BMW Financial Services is $575. I have seen some dealers charge as high as $875 for this Acq fee.
