IMHO you got a good price. There is one thing though. The base price MSRP is correct while the invoice that you paid is $320 high. This represents the price increase for 2013. The new MSRP is $38,850 and an invoice of $35,740. Adding up your list came to $41,951. You showed $42,271. There's the $320 increase! The base invoice that you should have paid was $35,420. So you paid $719 over invoice but invoice includes MACO and the training charges. The MACO charge varies but the training charge is always $180. So if the MACO was $300 then your invoice would be $41,951+300+180=$42,431. OTD price $42,670-$42,431=$239 dealer profit. A good deal. BTW MACO and training are not part of MSRP. The extra $320 should be questioned if you ordered in 2012. Good luck.

No Maco fee in my areas so with holiday cash $550 below invoice. I could have pushed a bit more but it was not worth the few hundred bucks.
Let me know what you think, thanks.
Now is the anticipations for waiting.
The dealer then charges $250 for doc fees and another $50 or so for temp tags, and some other bs charges.

#1797 of 1822 Order to production to delivery time
Jan 02, 2013 (6:14 pm)
Placed order for an X3 on November 26. Per BMW, the vehicle is not yet in production and no date set for production. I'm located in Northeast.
I saw the earlier post regarding a fire at the Spartanburg factory...wondering if that had an impact on production schedule. Wondering in general about the overall timeline of production...is 4+ weeks normal for production to begin?
I'm curious what others are experiencing. Thx.

Did the dealer provide you with a production #?
I know folks that have ordered the car earlier in November and they got the car last week.

Call your dealer and ask him if he has an allocation for your ordered car.. If he doesn't, find another dealer..
If he does, ask him what's up, and why your car isn't in production..
