    A reporter is looking to speak with someone who bought a new small luxury SUV (like a X3, Q5 and RX 350) recently. If you are interested in sharing your story, please respond to no later than Wednesday, February 29, 2012. Please send your contact info, the name of the make/model you bought and a few examples of models that you also considered.

  • This is the following quote I got from a CA dealership:

    MSRP $39,895.00
    Selling Price $38,315.00 plus fees
    36 months
    10,000 miles a year
    $640.15 cash down
    Monthly pymt including tax=$631.40
    Residual: $23,139.10

    Is it me or does the monthly payment seem super high?? I guess the selling price is at midpoint between invoice and MSRP so I am sure there is room to work with. Is anyone getting these cars at or below invoice?
  • Is the Costco program price offered at invoice price? Maybe worth a try.

    I requested a quote using costco program and the quote I was given was way too high. About 1K over invoice shown on Edmunds (edmunds doesn't take into consideration ad fees that dealer include).

    So ended up talking with other dealers without costco pricing and was able to negotiate way better deal.

    $2500 off already? Not bad..

    No thought of taking delivery of a current 2012 with the six-cylinder?

    Prices Paid, Lease Questions, SUVs

  • What state are you in? I also start looking for a new car and X3 is on my short list.

    I am in WI, but dealers in WI would maximum discount $1800. So I was talking to multiple dealers in IL and they all are way more negotiable. So I ended up placing an order yesterday for the following:

    2013 X3 xDrive28i
    Mineral Silver Metallic paint (A14)
    Leather Package (Oyster Nevada LUCX)
    Cold Weather Package (ZCW)
    Panoramic Moonroof (402)
    Comfort Access Keyless Entry (322)
    MSRP: $43,945 (including $895 destination)

    Sale price: $41,250 + TTL
  • stactumstactum Posts: 39
    After I placed an order (see my post above) I ended up matching deal from another dealer which ends up being even better, so basically it is:

    2013 X3 xDrive28i
    Mineral Silver Metallic paint (A14)
    Premium Package (Oyster Leather LUCX, Brushed Aluminum Trim 4AD) ZPP
    Cold Weather Package (ZCW)
    Comfort Access Keyless Entry (322)
    MSRP: $44,595 (including $895 destination)

    Sale Price: $41,450 + TTL

    It's about $3,145 discount (about 7.1%) off msrp
  • I just started my car search, and saw this vehicle today (link below). Please let me know what you think of it? What price would you negotiate for? Thanks!

  • Hey Stactum,

    I'm in Green Bay area & planning on buying 2013 X3 28i. I test drove the 2012 one, but the Vermillion Red with my options wasn't available and that's when the Salesman told me about the 2013 X3 w/4-cyl turbo coming in Apr/2012. So, I'm waiting to test drive it.

    However, I would definitely like to know more about the dealers you contacted for your 2013 X3 28i quotes. Bergstrom in Appleton, WI is the closest dealership for me. However, the next closest dealership is in Milwaukee/Madison. So, I don't think there would be much negotiation @Appleton dealer.

    My main concern is - If I get a good deal from a far away dealer (say Chicago, IL) - I'll still have to come to the Bergstrom, Appleton dealer for the maintenance. Won't they make my life difficult if I ever end up buying from other dealers?

    Here's the config I'm looking for:

    X3 28iDrive
    Premium pkg (Vermillion Red+Mohave or Oyester leather+Siena line wood)
    Cold Wthr pkg
    Conv. pkg (Mainly Xenon Headlights & comfort key)
    Tech. Pkg ( I want everything in Tech pkg other than Nav., and m not sure if I can get Bluetooth + USB without Nav.)

    Your help is much appreciated. Thanks
  • From that I'm reading, about 7 to 7.1% is about the max anyone's getting off MSRP. I'm looking at ordering a 2013 for Factory Delivery in SC. I'll have to see if the 3 dealers in the DFW, Texas area will go 7+% off MSRP. My MSRP will be over $60k for a X3 xDrive 35i. Pretty much loaded... no trade, now BMW financing as I can go better at my Credit Union.

    Has anyone done better than 7.1% off?
  • stactumstactum Posts: 39
    I spoke with Concours and International in MKE, Zimbrick, and bunch of dealers at IL (Knauz - since they are part of costco program but it's $1K over invoice, Patrick BMW, Motor Werke, and lots of others).

    MKE dealers offered me 1500 off MSRP and I test drove 2012 X3 at both. Concours was very strict with pricing, International seemed very strict but after I told them that I got one from IL they said: "too bad you didn't give us a chance to match the offer, woud've saved you a trip to Chicago" - so if you are getting some good offers from IL - it will be worth asking local dealers including Appleton to match the offer. For them sale is a sale, and even though they may not make money off your sale - it gives them volume.

    I ended up getting at Motor Werke, but Patrick BMW was in the running also. MW gave me no BS offer right from the bat, and then matched Patrick BMW matching. Fun negotiations!

    Also, I don't think it matters where you get your car and where you service it since service doesn't necessarily care where the car was purchased.

    Good luck negotiating!

    7.1% puts it at about invoice. There is 7% markup on the car and 9% markup on packages and accessories.
    I am sure you can get better discount if you get outgoing model year or something from dealer's lot. Any special order for upcoming model year with 7% discount seems pretty good deal. Also have to consider any kind of incentives from BMW for upcoming MY, but I don't think there will be good ones, maybe just APR.

    Thanks much for sharing your experience. I e-mailed for Quotes from all dealers within 250mi of me and it includes all the names you've listed above =))

    I also have Costco Membership...would try that with Knauz. Some great tips, man (given that negotiations can be a pain).

    Would it be OK for me to use your contact as Referral when reaching out to the dealers you listed above (esp. Werke)?

    I plugged in my specs in & this is what I got:

    Premium Pkg - Tech. Pkg - Convenience Pkg - Cold Weather I Pkg

    Vermillion Red - Nevada Mohave Leather trim - Fineline Wave Wood trim
    Aluminum Roof Rails

    Dealer Factory MSRP
    BASE 35,420 35,420 38,500
    Holdback 1,101 n/a n/a
    Dealer 0 n/a n/a
    Regional 500 500 n/a
    Ad Fee
    Dest. Fee 895 895 895
    Cust. Incentive 0 n/a n/a
    TOTAL 44,315 45,415 48,845

    Based on the above, I'm thinking 46-46,500 + TTL should be a fair price. What say?
  • larryxularryxu Posts: 2
    May I ask the Sale Price is pre-tax or plus-tax? In other words, is your OTD $41250? Thanks.
  • @Larryxu

    Stactum's post clearly mentions "Sale Price: $41,450 + TTL" (TTL - Tax, Title, License/Registration)

    MSRP: $44,595 (including $895 destination)

    Sale Price: $41,450 + TTL

    It's about $3,145 discount (about 7.1%) off msrp

    Hope this helps.
  • larryxularryxu Posts: 2
    Sorry still a bit confused. '$41,450 + TTL' means $41,450 is plus TTL (TTL included in $41,450, so the final price paid as OTD is $41,450) or the sale price is $41,450 without TTL (so the final OTD paid should be $41,450 + some more dollars for TTL)?
