#1741 of 1822 Just ordered 2013 X3 28i
Sep 13, 2012 (3:43 pm)
Learnt a lot from this forum. Signed up to contribute another price data point.
Just ordered: 2013 BMW X3 28i
Packages: Technology, Convenience, Cold Weather, Premium
Selling price: $44,500
Invoice: Edmunds $44,685 (plus $180 training, $400 MACO) = $45,265
Rebate: -$1,000 College Graduate program
Final price: $43,500
Great discount over invoice. Had to face off dealers to bring the price down. Not a current BMW owner (no loyalty $750), nor a BMWCA member (No $500 cash back). Would have been really sweet, but very happy with the current price. 3 yr 10k lease came out to $516/month $3,087 due at delivery for taxes, 1st pmt and registration etc (no additional cash down). Waiting impatiently for the car to be built

#1744 of 1822 Drive for Team USA credit
Sep 22, 2012 (5:41 am)
Can I use the $1000 credit if I order a car by 10/31? Searching the web, and BMW forums some say that you need to take delivery by 10/31, others say it can be ordered by that date. If I need a car to be built, taking delivery by that date may be tight. I read the fine print on the email I was sent and it said nothing about delivery, just purchase by that date.

The sticking point is usually.... you can't finalize a purchase until there is a VIN number and the dealer has possession...
You could always finalize a deal (today?), get your order in.... and then if it doesn't show up by 10/31, walk away..
Since they make them in SC, you have a pretty good chance, as long as your dealer has an allocation... they could probably adjust options on one that is just starting production (if you have a savvy CA)..

#1748 of 1822 Tailgate not opening BMW X3 2102
Nov 04, 2012 (8:14 am)
I purchased my X3 in 2012. I started having a problem where the trunk was not automatically popping up, I had to pull it manually.
The problem: a small freeze pop, 4 oz, leaked on the cargo area. It apparently caused some computer part to break. They wanted to charge me 750 to repair. However I argued that no small amount of liquid spilled in a trunk area should cause such damage.
They waived the bill, but I had to buy their Cargo Mat and have them install for $100.
Moral of the story, protect the area with a Cargo Matt--save yourself from the problem, If anyone puts groceries or coolers in the trunk you will want to consider spending the money on the matt. Something will spill eventually, maybe even enough rain----? who knows.

You are being given bad info. A 4oz popsicle did not make your tailgate inoperative. Worked on cars/MC's for many years as a pro.You need another dealer.
