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..

That sounds pretty amazing. I went to a dealer in the LA area looking for a 2013 X3 28i with about $10,000 in options and they told me they'd only take $300 off of MSRP since I was ordering a car that wasn't in dealer inventory. I've only begun the search, but that hardly seems like a deal, right!?

It's kind of BS excuse
Most people order their X3 as they want them. Dealers have their production slots - it's better to fill them with pre-sold cars (like for you) than order something for the lot that will seat on it before it's sold.
The way I would approach it (kind of how I did with my purchase) - send a separate email to multiple dealers with your config and ask for their quotes. State that you will be ordering that particular configuration.
