    i'm looking to buyout my leased 2003 X5 3.0. my dealer is going make it certified pre-owned, package it with a 6 yr/100,000 mile warranty and sell me the car at $3000 over the residual value (for a total cost of $31,600) - is he charging me too much? do i have room to negotiate further on the price? if i buyout the lease at the residual value i won't have a warranty. the car has ~31,500 miles, NAV, premium package, cold weather package, automatic.

    If your X5 only has 31,500 miles in three years, then you will still be in warranty for the next year, even if your dealer doesn't CPO it.

    So, you are only really gaining about 2 yrs and 21K miles of warranty..

    Also, be aware that unless you pay for an extension, the "free maintenance" plan will expire at 4yr/50K. That doesn't come with the CPO warranty.

    Also.. the dealer may not be paying the same amount for your car as you would... He may be getting more than $3000 out of the deal.

    Is it a good deal? Hard to say... ;)

    Also.. the dealer may not be paying the same amount for your car as you would... He may be getting more than $3000 out of the deal.

    To build on what kyfdx said about what the dealer is paying for the car.... The residual lease-end value that you are quoted from BMWFS (pre-determined at beginning of the lease) is probably not the same as what they will buy the car for from BMWFS.

    Since you are way under your miles, BMWFS will take this into account and it'll actually cost the dealer more to get a car with low miles. BMWFS uses average Manheim values to determine what the dealer can buy the car for. They adjust for miles, so they'll pay more for a low-mileage car and less for high-miles.

    The one thing BMWFS does not adjust for is options.... So whether your car is a base car with manual transmission, leatherette or if it's loaded with sport pkg, navigation, it won't make a difference in the price the dealer buys it for from BMWFS.

    thanks so much for the replies. i'm now comparing coverage from warrantydirect.com vs purchasing the CPO/warranty from bmw. it's about the same cost (~$3k) but provides 2 more years of coverage than bmw (coverage thru 2011 vs 2009) and covers wear & tear. is the CPO process worth going thru bmw? i've read good things about warrantydirect.com - anything to the contrary? the deciding factor may be that bmw is going to fix the 'excess wear and tear' on the body that they found during inspection (~$1500) which is included in the $3k.
  • 2006 X5 with premium package,rear climate,auto tran.,self dimming mirrors, xenon headlights,dest. frt included. MSRP $49,620 paid $47,061. I would recommend the xenon as a very nice option.

    All- My experience of shopping for the X5- was great...the sales person at MORTIZ- Airlington claims that all customers who post on edmunds tell lies abou there purchase and cost details- and for that he didn't get my deal....... he wanted 2K over invoice and his invoice has even $400 dealer tax. a X5 3.0i with premium package ....and all other packages -- the invoice comes to 45,450 and this great sales person TT's invoice is 46,460 + 2000.00 over his invoice...and says he he is not making anything ...right I am deaf....will post once I get a final price from other dealer I am working now....and experience of X5 purchase will help me...Thanks

    He does have a point, but it doesn't sound like he expressed it very well. There are definitely a lot of people on here that brag about a particular deal they got that you know are embellishing the details. Most of the regulars on these boards established that a long time ago.... Regardless, that salesperson could have said it a little more tactfully. ;)

    bdr127- nOpe he used the exact sentence- Customers LIE on edmunds.com....this statement was made very clearly and I have witness for this..this sales person just graduated from a toyota sales to BMW so he still has the honda sales in him...and will neven loose that if he talks like this....

    Given that the X5 model is coming to a close, when will the incentives kick in the get rid of the remaining inventory? What are some of the incentives that are likely:

    Price rebates or incentives
    Low money factors (for lease)
    cheap financing
    some or all of the above

    I am looking to lease or buy a X5 3.0 and want to make sure i know when to start getting the deals on these

    Thanks
  • Can you guys post some of the leasing prices on 2006 4.8's?
    thanks
  • Am working on a deal for a friend on the following X5...

    '06 X5 4.4i
    Jet Black
    Beige Leather
    Premium Package
    Cold Weather Package
    Navigation
    Rear Climate Package
    Heated Steering Wheel
    MSRP: $59,895

    Dealer is currently offering it for $57,995, which I think is too high. How much do you think I should be shooting for?

    I was thinking of having him put in an offer of $56,000ish and seeing what they say. Is that too much of a lowball offer? Thanks!

    P.S. This is in the Philadelphia area.

    I am interested in purchasing an X5 (4.4i, metallic black, and a premium package only.) I am located in Orange County, CA., and I am curious what people have paid. Edmunds quotes around (TMV) $52,000, but dealers around the area appear to be requesting prices in the high 50's to low 60s. Also what is the current apr available from BMW for someone with excellent credit?

    thanks

    I was also interested in possibly leasing an 2006 X5(4.4i, metallic black, and a premium package only), and would like to know the money factor and residual value numbers for this vehicle.

    thanks

    Hello,

    I was wondering if there are any incentives currently offered on the 2006 X5 3.0? If yes, then do they apply to the CPO purchases too?

    Thanks
