    Were you able to order the Tech w/o the Conv package? I just ordered the Sport Activity 35i, and when I added the Tech package, I HAD to include the Conv package; for a total of about $5K MSRP...... Can't comment on the price you paid, but wait time is about what I was told...

    Hi nyinja,
    I assume you will finance/pay after you receive your car but how much one has to pay to "order" it?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hey, The $ looks good, the time a little long but better than most car-makers these days. I was surprised we got ours in only 4 weeks, but they may be more backlogged now. BTW what is this Eco Credit? and how much does it save in %? Thanks.

    bimmervoy - Is the Signature loan line the OwnersChoice Financing from BMW? I was talking to the dealer about the OC and he said that 1.9% is not available and is much higher. In TX, OC makes sense compared to leasing. Let me know.

    My situation is kind of unique because I am ordering it from the US, but sending it to Japan - so I had to pay 15% down to order. Don't know what the "normal" down/hold price would be to order it....

    I LOVE YOUR POST:) ...It's amazing on how those Japanese "soccer-mum" x-wagons got to be so friken' BORING!!! ...Just looking at the new Lexus RX makes me sick to my stomach! I wouldn't drive it unless someone paid me to do so! However I remember they actually had an upper hand in this segment in the late 90's & early 00's ...WTF is going on?!?!...The ONLY one that is got a little "pepper" to it is the INFINITY FX ...but they're just pushing their STYLING vs PRACTICALITY way over-the-top. Anyway, I had cars from Ford, VW-Audi, Honda-Acura ...and after driving (2) X3s for 6 years & a 330i for 2 years ...I will ALWAYS drive only BMW for as long as I possible can!...absolutely no comparison to anything else when it comes to DRIVING-DYNAMICS period!!!

    Does anyone have a 2011 X5 with HUD that can confirm whether it will display your speed in KPH if you set it up in iDrive? I've been told it will, but haven't been able to confirm....

    I am in the midst of negotiations to buy a 2011 X5 and was told by the dealership that the invoice prices listed on edmunds and other sites are wrong. The dealer said that the invoice price for a 2011 X5 is 93% of MSRP at all times. I have never heard that. It appears that when I build an X5 on edmunds that the invoice prices on various options vary between 90 -92%. Can anyone assist me in showing my dealer that I know he is wrong? Or is he right and edmunds wrong?

    Can someone PLEASE tell me who's idea it was not to include the VERY STANDARD component called: CARGO COVER - Really?!?!
    After just dishing out $60,000!!! an a top notch luxury SAV ...I get home thinking oops, some "[non-permissible content removed]" forgot to install that rear cover (no big deal) ..But ha! to my dismay it's no longer INCLUDED! ..and it sells for ~$300+
    Am I just getting "my leg pulled" by Paul-Miller of NJ or is this really TRUE. I was told that it's thanks to some idiots that forget to put those things back when they go to return their lease - fine!...but I'm actually (for the 1st time) BUYING this X5!

    So please BMW stop "NICKEL & DIME'ing" us US customers!!!
    1st. We don't get the silly TOOL-KIT & 1st AID KIT like the rest of the WORLD.
    2nd. No std Floor Mats (some production problem) got "all weather" once instead ..Thx God.
    3rd. And now NO CARGO COVER? ....It's Ridiculous!

    Sorry for my venting, but it's just that annoying to me!...

    Hey bimmervoy,
    That was the first question I asked the person at Open Road BMW in Edison,NJ after opening the trunk when I went to test drive the 2011 X5. He said the same thing that your dealer said. Even he was blaming BMW for that. It was supposedly a standard accessory in the previous gen X5 but not with the 2011. I agree its totally ridiculous.

    BTW, Can you tell me how much did you pay when you "finalized the deal" for your X5? What % do they normally charge for booking.

    I am sure there is a 6-8 week delay but I am just curious.

    Hi sunnyvali,
    YES, our loan is from BMW Financial, but I'm not sure if these programs very based on location - we got ours at Paul-Miller NJ.
    Talk to the HEADQUARTERS about it to make sure what's going on. Good luck.

    Hi,
    We got our X5 finalized at $57.5K. (I really didn't have a time/chance to haggle around much)
    Deposit was ~$950 to place the order.
    Down-payment was $13K on a 5 year signature-loan.
    Our GOAL was to stay at $500/month.
    Of course we'll have to pay the rest of it after 5 years ...but who cares about that now:) since then I won't be paying $2000/month for child care, but won't have the college tuition yet.
    Good luck!

    When do the residuals and money factors for august come out? Is this info out yet?
  • I'm looking to buy/order 2011 x5 35i prem. Friends complained that older X5's leather seats are stiff and not comfortable. Given the new choice of leather, Nevada, Napa or Perforated -- does anyone have a suggestion? I am used to Acura MDX cushy leather seats. BTW -- the Sparkling Bronze is a tough one to locate in Calif. I'm trying to decide on that or White.
  • Wow -- I think that is a good deal. Are you in CA? What dealer did you buy from?
  • bimmervoybimmervoy Posts: 13
    Hi, If you can wait just ORDER what you want (it's worth the wait). Personally I feel that the OYSTER int. looks stunning with the S.Bronze or Red ext. and great for the sunny CA; I would definitely consider the PERFORATED seats as well for CA, and perhaps the extra contour option if the cost is not prohibitive - it's rather pricey for these "above all" extras. To me as long as I have leather, lumbar support (MUST HAVE) & heat, I'm happy with the standard set as far as comfort goes for the X5. On my 330i I have the Sport Contour once ...it's needed:)

    Ok, once you remember, please let us know which floor mats you are talking about. I am awaiting delivery of my X5d. Not sure if I will get the mats but in case not, I want to know where to order. Thanks.
  • sunnyvalisunnyvali Posts: 32
    Talked to the dealer (DFW, TX area) today about the OwnersChoice financing option and he said that the 1.9% is not available. The interest rate is 6% for the diesel. Can't believe how these folks operate. They probably love haggling all day along...

    Will try another dealer tomorrow and see how much it changes. My credit union has the similar program, but they will not do SUVs.

    Thanks!
