Yes, It is N20. 2013 X3 2.8 are N20 only. I didn't Test Drive N20 X3 2.8 (You probably won't find one on the lots yet for a test drive as people who pre-ordered, are getting their vehicles delivered now. I test drove 2012 X3 2.8 (inline 6 cyl) - in March and I did test drive 3-series (N20) a few days back. I must say, it was kool. Unless you drive both engines back 2 back - you probably won't know the difference. And, N20 is proclaimed to be faster, more powerful & more fuel efficient (with 2013 X3 having more standard features) than the 2012 X3 - ofcourse at a revised Base Price
Verdict: I liked it and ordered it. But, everyone is different.
Hope this helps.

This is approximately 5.2% off - it is a good deal, not great deal. I talked my dealer to 7.1% discount.
Use http://www.carsolutions.com/website/index.php?section=NewVehicleSearch and add necessary options to see what the invoice on the vehicle and than compare to what dealer wants. You can probably bounce his quote off some other dealers and see if they beat it.

With the 2013 X3 hitting the lots now, does anyone have any insight on the possible May offers for the remaining 2012s? Any rumors?

My local dealer tried to assure me that with only a couple of 2012 xDrive28i on his lot, they would fly off the lot for MSRP, so he doesn't even have to share the quest cash.

Appreciate the insight. I will most likely wait until the offers come out next week before attempting a purchase.

I was taught to offer invoice up, not Msrp down. Why all these percent off of Msrp posts?

Because MSRP is a known price...
Negotiating from invoice up is good... if you know what number the dealer is using for invoice... many times, it ends up to be more than you thought..
