#1842 of 1854 Re: Some Advice On How to Buy an X3 For Just Over Invoice [bilxma]
Sep 24, 2013 (7:35 am)
Just bought my 3rd BMW from my dealer. Ordered a '14 X3 35i for $750 over invoice. Before rebates and incentives. ($500 loyalty, $500 turnkey off 1st month's pay't, $500 BMW CCA member rebate).
Finance is 2.99%, but if rates drop before I take delivery, or if bigger incentives come on the scene, I may be eligible to do even better. In the past, rates have dropped the month AFTER I make my purchase. Just my luck.
You may find there is less wiggle room on the 35i price than the 28i since they only take one order for 35i for about every 30 28i's ordered... or so they say.
I was offered a 28i at ~$250 over invoice, but after I loaded it up with all the packages/options, I went with the 35i. It came down to about $2k difference when all was said and done. Over 60 months, the difference seemed worth it for the extra horsies and package amenities I wouldn't have otherwise purchased.
Plus, I had a 335xi before and am trading in my 535xi. No offense intended to 28i owners, but I couldn't really get used to the 28i after the 35i engines. I found myself putting it in Sport mode all the time- negating any fuel efficiency, and probably straining the engine if I did it all the time.
At the end of a hard 12-14 hr day of work, my ride home is like a 2nd paycheck for me. The thrust and exhaust note off a 35 is better than punching a speed bag when it comes to starting to unwind from the stress. I don't drink, smoke, cheat, golf or make my wife a football season widow. My pleasures in life (outside of family) are my car, good BBQ, and Springsteen concerts.
My trade was respectable- equaled what Galves and other sites said it was worth. Hard to negotiate better than that.
Now I'm looking forward to the Spartanburg Performance Center delivery experience in mid-October. (I never see myself being able to make it to the Welt, so this will have to do). Unfortunately, two cool things are shut down now due to new model year tooling (and probably to prevent corporate espionage): the video portal where you can watch your Bimmer being built, and the factory tour. Tours resume summer 2014; no word on the video portal.
Also looking forward to driving home, in part, along the Blue Ridge parkway as well as some Carolina BBQ!

Here's what I got...
Mineral Silver with Tan Interior
Driver's Assistance Package
Driver Assistance Plus Package
Premium Hi Fi Stereo
Satin Roof Rack
Heated Front Seats
MSRP: 54,800 Price Paid: 51,150
Registration Fee: 51.75
Refundable Security Deposit: 399.00

I think I did ok. If I had a little more stamina, I'm fairly certain that I could have gotten $1000 off. 6 hours at the very busy dealership made me throw in the towel though.

You did very good. There isn't very much left, let alone another $1000

You're probably right. I was just being greedy knowing there is a $2300 dealer hold back on the price ..

Hi - I have been shopping around for a BMW X3 (to buy . not lease) for a few weeks and the best offer i have received is 2K less than MSRP.I saw on the BMW Site a new Option allowance of 750$.
It says 750 OFF MSRP.
So it is fair to ask for it on top of negotiated price (2K below MSRP?)
Are there more incentives on pipeline for Nove with holidays?

As of 10/1 they added an option bonus of $750 towards the MSRP of the 35i (yay!). That brought the total of rebates and bonuses to about $2250. That and my great deal vs. invoice to start with gave me a discount of about $5K below MSRP.
Dealer was Craig, Park Ave BMW, Passaic Ave Internet sales/Pre-owned sales division (not the Rt 17 showroom), Maywood, NJ
BTW- I did the Performance Center Delivery and it is not to be passed up. Cost me $150 1-way plane ticket, $120 fuel and $90 hotel room half way home back to N. Jersey. I may detail the experience in another post.
