You need to go to the dealership with the information in hand. If you don't then they can spin any kind of numbers on you.
I would go for $0 down, $491/month including the 7% tax, that's calculated based on the sale of the car at invoice. This is 2008 not 2009 model.
This is 15k/miles, add 2% to residual for 12k miles.
2008 BMW X3 3.0si 4WD SUV
24 Month – Residual 70% of MSRP – .00125 Base Rate 3%
36 Month – Residual 62% of MSRP – .00125 Base Rate
Additionally you can put in 7 MSD (Multiple Security Deposit) for $3,500 and reduce your monthly to $453/month and you earn over 12% on the security deposit which you get it back at end of lease.

New York Metro Area...
2006 CPO X3
Heated Front Seats and Rain Sensing wipers otherwise base
26,780 Miles, In service Date is DEC 2005 (CPO warranty through DEC 2011)
$22,995 with 0.9% 36 Month Financing and First 2 Months paid by BMW
The car is mint (hardly looks used). With tax/tags/prep fees/finance charges (interest) minus the 2 payments by BMW the total purchase cost will be just around ~$24K. The pricing was so attractive that I didn't even bother haggling with the dealer.
I took delivery yesterday (12/31/08) and so far am very impressed with the x3. The interior space is very generous for a "small" vehicle (at least on the outside) and it is very responsive. It's almost like a taller 3-series vs a small SUV/SAV.

I'm looking at a new 2008 X3 - basic car, no premium package and no extras. Dealer quotes me $40,325. I have a 2004 X3 2.5 with 67,000 miles on it and he's telling me that with my trade, I'll have to pay $29,000 for the new one.
Feedback please. How much better can I do?

If it doesn't have any extras, isn't $40,325 the MSRP?
I'm just guessing, but I doubt your current ride is worth more than $12K-$13K on a trade... Discount should be about $2500-$3000 on the new one... I guess if $29K included taxes and everything else, it wouldn't be too bad... 0.9% for 60 months included in that deal?

I'm not financing, so it's not an issue. The $29,000 is a walkout price. He's telling me probably giving me more like $11,000 on my trade.

Yeah... hard to judge with the trade... If you are happy with $11K for it, then you are probably doing okay.
The 0.9% financing doesn't cost the dealer anything.... I'd take advantage of it (even if you don't need to).
The "base" model comes pretty well equipped in '08.. Other than leather, it's hard to tell from the better equipped models...

A dealer is offering my gf an '06 X3 with 33k miles, white exterior, leather terracotta interior, premium pkg, xenons, heated seats/steering wheel, privacy glass, auto for $25900 (after taking off $1k), plus 0.9% for 60 months. Good deal?

Just bought a 2009 X3 minimally equipped at $37,800 against an MSRP of $41K and change.
The vinyl is quite nice as is the rest of the car. Excellent ride and handling.

What were the options on the X3 I'm looking for about the same thing but the dealer is giving me a tough time. He's not budging from close to MSRP on a cash sale I'm about ready to jump to the 2010 Mercedes GLK. Also was that off the lot or a new build
