#1612 of 1822 2012 X3 28i good deal?

How does this deal sound?
2012 X3 28i
Sale price: $42,000
36 month lease (10k miles/yr):
$3415 due at signing (includes 1st payment and taxes)
Residual is $26,056 (58%)
Is there more room here? I pretty sure there is by the reaction of the sales rep when I got up to leave, but I'm wondering how much lower I can get it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
#1613 of 1822 2012 X3 28i deal or not?

Planning to buy a new X3. I am getting 2,500 below the MSRP price for 2012 X3. Is this a good deal, or can it go further down

Depends on what packages the car has. What is the MSRP? Which dealer are you shopping?
#1615 of 1822 Help Requested

I'm strongly considering becoming a first time BMW customer and looking at X3. Lives in metro-NYC and seem that NY dealers are generally best option for price given capped documentation fees. Long Island and other outlying NY suburban dealers appear to be the best on price.
What I can't really figure out, is what negotiating leverage is. AmEx buying program has some dealers willing to quote at $600 over invoice and the lowest I have see is $500 over. Consumer Reports suggests that dealer holdbacks can allow as much as a $1,000 swing below invoice, for dealers to break even
Inventory is limited but new order lead times appear to be in the 3-6 week range. I understand this is a very popular SUV and that leverage may be in dealers' favor but does anyone have tips on what I might be missing?
#1616 of 1822 Price for new BMW X3 28i MRSP $44,875
Nov 03, 2011 (6:29 am)
I am getting quotes in the Chicago area for a 2011 or 2012 BMW X3 28i, silver ext, black interior, premium pkg, convenience pkg, climate pkg, and park distance control. When I build at BMW USA, I get a MRSP of $44,875. I am a current BMW owner. What should I negotiate for this car. Also, what should I negotiate for the lease for lease factor and residual for 36 mts $12k miles. Thanks!
#1617 of 1822 Use auto buying service as a guide

They might quote you dealer that are further away but then you can take the number to local and see if they'll match it. If not, you can decide if the loaner service of the local dealer is worth the difference. I got my 2011 a few months ago for $1k over invoice.
Also join bmwcca.org club, after 1 year of membership you can get $500 back for buying X3.

My X3 3.0 has 43,0 miles and I 4 year warranty is up next week. I wish I knew what the top price would be if I sold it. If I could get top dollar for it I would upgrade to a new X3 28i. Took one for a short ride, but not sure if it drives as nice as the one I have. I love me present X3 and it rides like a top. The new model doesn't seem to have that same feel in the ride and visibility is bad? Does anyone have a 2012 already. I was wondering if you liked it. Only took a demo for test ride as dealers have not received many so far. I wanted to trade up in a week.

I've driven the older model vs brand new model back to back and think the new model is much nicer. It could be that you have a different suspension package or just different tires or even seats can make a difference. Consult kbb.com for pricing. You are unlikely to get private party value if you sell it yourself, since you cannot offer financing or a warranty. Look at trade in values.
