#1665 of 1822 2012/2013 X3 Base
May 04, 2012 (12:40 pm)
I am in the Bay Area, CA. Looking to get either a 2012 Q5 2.0T Base or the 2012/3 X3 Base. I hear that there is much less price flexibility on the Q5 than on the X3. Is that true? Also, is $1500 below MSRP a reasonable target- for either vehicle?

On the X3, I can get $500 under invoice price with the Drive to Team USA($1000 incentive). It is about $3400 under MSRP or 9% off MSRP.

Q5 will be going through mid-cycle refresh for 2013, even it's not changing that much visually, it will still get some new headlights, and some interior improvements. If you will find one sitting on dealer's lot - you may be able to get it reasonably cheap.
As for bimmers - even it Milwaukee the first quotes I got were about 1500$ off MSRP, I ended up getting it at invoice for 3145$ off MSRP, but yes, I guess it might be easier to get a better deal on X3 since BMW sells more cars and have more wiggle room. Also bimmer you can order just as you want it since they produced in SC. For Audis - they're all coming from Germany so it may not be as easy to get what you want.

What dealer is $500 over invoice? In the PNW, the best offer so far is not near that price.

I asked abount the Drive for Team USA discount. It is not available on the X3 just the 3 series. Also, it isn't until July.

It says "BMW Drive for Team USA Allowance is available on all new 2012 and 2013 BMW models". And also confirmed with my CA that it can be used for X3.

Are there any other incentives besides Drive for Team USA, I heard there is a $1000 incentive if you get the loan through BMW Finance. Please post your comments. Also, any input on Houston area deals greatly appreciated.

Has everyone gotten a $599 Doc Fee? Are you able to negotiate it? I'm seeing it from everyone in the southeast and nobody is budging.

In IL where I got the car doc fee was $161.38 from any dealer I talked to (for purchase). For lease it might be different. But $599 seems high.
