  • I asked the Ann Arbor dealer about driving school. He was unaware of the program for US-Built vehicles. He was going to get back with me but must have forgot.. :-) We found a vehicle in the Idaho and having it shipped here. Should arrive early next week. Wanted to close transaction before year end for tax purposes. Would have loved to doing the driving school thing though. Can we still do that if not ordering?

    There was a fire at the factory earlier in the week in the X3 Assembly section. No word yet from BMW if there will be any delays.

    I'm sure you can, just go to BMWUSA.COM and the info should be on the web page.
  • Dealer said that if I ordered a custom built X3 from the factory (they didn't have what I was looking for on the lot) I could not get the holiday discount for $1000 as it would not arrive by January 3 2013 after which the discount would expire. Sounds backwards to me, as I would pay for the car with a deposit? Is this valid or a sales tactic to get me to buy something on the lot?
  • That sounds fishy to me. I placed an order recently for an X3 and got the discount. Should be part of the final paperwork when you make your deposit.

    Dealer has a 2012 X3 XDrive35i with 12,500miles on it. It is full loaded. Original MSRP is $55,000. They offer me $42,500. Is this a good deal? It seems only save me $6,000 from a new car.
  • Have got two quotes from different Bay Area dealers- both prices are $500 over invoice. This is before I negotiate- seems like getting it at invoice (before any holiday discounts) should be possible for December.
  • From Edmunds, 2013 X3 28i, cold weather + premium + tech, MSRP: $46,745, Invoice: $43,000. Seems to me that you can buy this car at invoice or even below invoice now
  • Acc to Edmunds, the invoice price for that combo is $41000. If that price does not include the holiday discount, it is good.
  • Is there any Holdback for BMW right now?
  • Dealer claims the invoice price published on edmunds.com is lower than the real invoice. They added a $400 advertising (maco) and a $180 fee for "training". They agreed to sell at invoice but "their invoice". They said all BMW dealers in the Bay Area would charge the same cost. Is this a legitimate add-on?
  • Yes... their invoice is likely Edmund's invoice plus those two charges..

  • Premium pkg, premium sound, cold weather pkg and deep sea blue metallic paint:
    Per Edmunds, MSRP $45,045; Invoice $41,455; dealer added MACO $300 and Training fee $180 to the invoice for a total invoice of $41,935. I gave the dealer a profit of $500.
    Price paid $42,435 less $1000 for financing $8,000 (the financing will add $11.52 per month until paid off after 6 months).
    The sales person said that the Edmunds invoice is too low since the invoice is 93% of MSRP. She was wrong. It's 92%. When they add in the non-discounted delivery fee plus MACO and training, then it works out to 93%.

    Is it a good price?

  • IMHO you got a good price. There is one thing though. The base price MSRP is correct while the invoice that you paid is $320 high. This represents the price increase for 2013. The new MSRP is $38,850 and an invoice of $35,740. Adding up your list came to $41,951. You showed $42,271. There's the $320 increase! The base invoice that you should have paid was $35,420. So you paid $719 over invoice but invoice includes MACO and the training charges. The MACO charge varies but the training charge is always $180. So if the MACO was $300 then your invoice would be $41,951+300+180=$42,431. OTD price $42,670-$42,431=$239 dealer profit. A good deal. BTW MACO and training are not part of MSRP. The extra $320 should be questioned if you ordered in 2012. Good luck.
  • You did mean a 2013 x3, correct?
  • Oh yeh, I meant 2013 X3 28i. Sorry :-)

    Many thanks for your input.

    No Maco fee in my areas so with holiday cash $550 below invoice. I could have pushed a bit more but it was not worth the few hundred bucks.

    Let me know what you think, thanks.

    Now is the anticipations for waiting.
    The dealer then charges $250 for doc fees and another $50 or so for temp tags, and some other bs charges.
  • My doc fee was $75.
  • Congrats! Sounds like a very good deal. Where did you purchase? Which dealer?
