#1748 of 1855 Tailgate not opening BMW X3 2102
Nov 04, 2012 (7:14 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.

Hi. Do not get the invoice, I don't think. I took a screen shot of the compute screen where they input all the data. Rate is .00125, residual is .58.
On that screen is where I jotted down all info(msrp $47895, price $44530)
#1754 of 1855 Dealer price on '13 x3 2.8

I have a first offer from my dealer for a 2013 BMW x3 2.8 with premium/cold weather/tech packages for $46,109. How should I counter?

I would work from their Invoice price and maybe 300 -500 over total Invoice. That is how I got my deal.

Thanks! I ended up at $45,700. Probably could've gotten it a little lower, but they had to search to find one with the exact color/packages I wanted. I know that hurts negotiating power.
