Hi gerry70, as far as I know the USAA discount is stackable and can be used in addition to the loyalty and the Drive for USA cash. This information comes from USAA directly. Log on to their website and search their directory for a USAA certified dealer in your area and they will accept it as a stackable discount. Hope this helps. My deal didn't fall through because of that. The sales manager changed at the dealership and he decided not to honor any deals offered by the earlier guy.

Where did you find this deal, since this is not a bad deal, compared to what I have?

We got a purchase deal that is roughly equivalent to sillycat's lease deal at BMW of Silver Spring: MSRP 63,845 (premium, SAV, running boards, BMW apps). Sales price of $54,799 that included $3,765 dealer discount, $4,500 eco credit, $1,000 drive for USA coupon, add $199 dealer processing fee.
Not sure what the lease deal would have looked like, but at least starting with roughly the same sales price discounts. I know they had at least a couple for 2012 X5d build slots as of last week.

Again, can't help you with the lease payment itself, but what is the net sales price they are using to get to that down payment / monthly payment? Hopefully, you are getting at least a $3,500 dealer discount on top of the $4,500 eco-credit and any other specific discounts you qualify for (i.e. drive event, loyalty, etc).
Also, what dealership, if I might ask? I shopped just about every dealer within 250 miles of DC. The local ones have a wide range of reputation for post purchase service - from pretty good to downright crappy - as you are probably aware. I checked their stock online and then called if they had something close. My wife and I test drove 3-4 different cars each to make sure we knew what options we wanted - and didn't. I found the technology package a little lacking, at least for $1,700. Most of what you are getting is the heads up display. I would have thought they would have thrown in adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation and/or blind spot warning system (all of which are available on the MDX). So we decided not to check that box, but did take the sport activity package for the sport seats, steering wheel, shadowline trim and and 19" wheels/tire package. At the point we decided to go with the sport package, we also decided to custom order, since most diesels on the lots didn't have it or had a bunch of other options and bad color choices.

I am shopping at IG Burton in DE at the beach presently, purchased a 335 two years ago, am happy w/ service, and trying to decide between leasing a X3 and X5. Easy 2:15 drive from DC / Arlington.
I'm planning to use USAA, loyalty, and drive team discounts.
Could anyone please point me to the current residual value and MF for X3 28i/35i and X5d? Leaning towards X3 28i, but am new to leasing and trying to figure out the considerations in the calculator.
Thanks in advance.

Hi guys, since I am starting the process of leasing my 2013 X5 premium from scratch, I was hoping to get the numbers on the most recent sept incentives. Can anyone please tell me if the MF or the residuals have changed. Thanks.

I got the deal from Bobby Rahal in Canonsburg PA (suburb of Pittsburgh)

I just confirmed lease factors today for both X3 and X5 is 0.00145.
Residual value for both X3 28i and 35i is 56% and 54% for the X5d since that is still a 2012.
LMK if anyone finds anything different.
#2035 of 2262 HOLD EVERYTHING....

....do not even think about buying or leasing an X5 off the lot (or any BMW for that matter), without giving REALLY serious consideration to ordering one and picking it up at the BMW Performance Delivery Center in Spartanburg South Carolina.
It is truly an exceptional experience:
2+ hours on the track with BMW Racing instructors that will take you through everything from a skidpad with and without VSC engaged, 50+ mph ABS stops in which you have to steer to an escape route, as many laps as you want on their mini-formula one course using the same vehicles as you purchased (I had to try to keep ahead of an M3 with an X5D...and did!!)
5 minutes in the seat of an M3 being driven by a racing instructor. Nothing at Universal Studios or Cedar Point will prepare you for a 120 mph run through an uphill S curve followed by a 120 degree hard right.
Lunch after the above
An off-road course in the X5 in which you go through 20+" of water, up and down 45 degree rock covered paths, sideways to the point of only having on front and one rear wheel on the ground, etc. Great opportunity to learn how to properly drive the X5 using the hill descent and reverse hold buttons.
a 1+ hour complete personal tour of the 1.5 million square foot X3 factory. They have a total of 4.5 million square feet, but the X5/X6 factory is off limits as they already are gearing up for the new redesign. I saw X3 2.0D right hand drives being made in front and back of X3 3.5i's.
As long as you want in BMW's Museum, gift shop and cafe.
I can honestly say that while there wasn't much second guessing I did after deciding on the X5 over the MDX, yesterdays experience proved to me that there is absolutely no comparison between the vehicles. We did things on the race track and the off road course in a X5D that would have left the Acura either upside down, flooded, or just plain busted up.
I was so energized, I decided to drive all the way home afterwards (520 miles) rather than stop halfway fro the night. Averaged 68 mph (had to vary speeds and not use cruise during break in) and still managed 29.4 mpg. Was hovering over 30 mpg until I hit some DC beltway construction.
