    Yes it is over in March. The only benefit is the money factor has dropped from 0.00255 to 0.00210

    I am returning my leased 2005 x3 at the end of this month. I am looking at a 2008 x5, 3.0 : dk green, tobacco interior, cold weather package, ipod adapter, rear entertainment system, mats, msrp 51125, invoice price 47500, quoted sale price 48994, acq fee 625, mf .00210, zero down- I was told for all fees and 1st mo I would have to pay 1745.25, monthly payments $710 for 12k, 36 months.The residual is 60%

    Also, as an aside, I think I might buy this car at the end of the lease. Does this make sense to do?

    Is that a good deal?

    We live in Mass.

    Hi - We just got back from the dealership. They offered us the following on a demo with 6,000 miles (supposedly the GMs wife was the only person to drive). They say it is a "new car" since it has not been titled. They will extend the warranty 3 months and 5,000 miles and sell us the additional 2 year, 50,000 mile maintenance for $595. So here it is:

    X5 3.0si

    MSRP $57,700

    Invoice 53,105

    Edmunds TMV 56,792

    Purchase price $51,350

    Is this a good deal - any problems with buying a demo? Thanks!
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 64,699
    I'm not sure how I would price the demo, but I have a couple of notes..

    1) Every GM must be a polygamist, because every demo/loaner ever mentioned on the forums was driven by his wife.

    2) The extra 3 months/5K miles is from the original in-service date.. So, if the car was put into service in October, the warranty runs 4yrs/3mo., or 55K miles from that point in time.. So, you'd actually have less than 4 years remaining.

    3) The warranty extension means it has been put into the demo/loaner program.. That's not a bad thing.. but, it's on the vehicle history report.

    4) $595 for the extended maintenance is dirt cheap.. You sure they didn't say $1595? This extends the maintenance plan to 6yr/100K from the original in-service date.

    Good luck!

    I welcome anyone's thoughts and opinions about which package I should go with. I seems like dealer's lots have units that contain more optional packages than I care or want to have. If I decide on either one of the mentioned package ONLY, will I get resistance from salesman? Thanks in advance.

    I like the Bluetooth wireless option with the BMW Assist. Any opinion on the Bluetooth option?

    How about comments on the various leather options or should I go with the least expensive napa?
  • rezfrezf Posts: 29
    Bluetooth is standard
    Napa is most expensive leather. I chose Nevada simply because of the cooling seats and massaging seats which are great for long journies

    Hi rezf I am looking to purchase a 4.8 as well pretty close to the configuration of yours. Could you email me you dealers name and who you worked with. I would appreciate it very much. I would love to get a great price as you did. Thanks
  • mets86mets86 Posts: 12
    For a lease, is the term "initial cap cost" the same as the actual price of the car?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 64,699
    It should be..

  • gfroiogfroio Posts: 6
    I am finalizing on a 3 year 15,000 mi lease for an 2008 X-5 4.8i. I won't list out the options but the MSRP is 66,625 and the invoice is 61,245. I negotiated the selling price to 62,500, roughly 1,250 over invoice. While I asked for a .0021 money factor to be used, the sales rep has told me they have to use .0022 or the business manager makes absolutley nothing. The residual is 37,540. No money down they are giving me a lease price of 985.

    I was thinking of going back to them and telling them if we are using the .022 money factor then I am willing to offer 62,250, basicially 1K over invoice.

    Any opinions on this deal ?
  • topgun26topgun26 Posts: 16
    what location are you in? what was the dealer? thanx!
  • worldnet5worldnet5 Posts: 11
    Can't believe this:
    * Dealer sells you a $62K car and tells you they don't make anything
    * You shell out $62K for a car and you ask for a $250 discount

    But we all know we don't buy a BMW thinking it is worth 62K, but we buy just because it is a BMW. If common sense was used, you should buy a $42K Highlander and put $20k in your pocket. But common sense is uncommon and most people (including me) don't have it at all.
  • gfroiogfroio Posts: 6
    Yes, but you would be driving a Highlander.

    Anyway, I was more interested if people feel this is a good deal. I am trying to get them down to a 62,250 price. They seem to be holding at 62,500 (1,250 over invoice). I was able to get them to throw in the BMW all season mats.
  • gfroiogfroio Posts: 6
    I am in Massechusetts. The dealer is in the next town over.
  • topgun26topgun26 Posts: 16
    im also in mass, was it herb chambers?
  • gfroiogfroio Posts: 6
    No, it was BMW Gallery, Norwell. I have been very happy with there service over he years and I live in Hingham so it is a 5 min drive. Like the sales guy, very up front, give me all the numbers no problem. So I am about to sign, here are the numbers.

    MSRP 66,625 (Plus the all season floor mats,not sure what they cost, say 150-200
    Selling Price 62,375
    No money down, 15,000 mi lease, 3 yrs, 981/mo.

    What do you think???
  • topgun26topgun26 Posts: 16
    the x5 4.8i price that i got so far was 65,113 on an msrp of 68,670. Lease wise I couldnt tell you. I should have some prices from other dealers tom. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me. 4 grand under msrp is good, most dealers say they wont do better than 2500 under msrp.
  • gfroiogfroio Posts: 6
    If it does not matter where you buy from, give Bob Carpenter at BMW Gallery in Norwell a call. I enjoyed dealing with him. I took the 1K over invoicing approach instead of looking at the MSRP. I wound up paying 1200 over invoice, but if you work in the floor mats, its about 1K. As far as leasing, once you have an agreed upon selling price, working out what you should pay on a monthy is pretty easy. I plugged my numbers into the edmunds calculator and it came out to right about what I was paying. Given that I have 15K miles, I think 980 for the car is pretty good. Maybe not the best, but I am happy (and pretty pumped to get the car). This site and forum helped greatly.

    Any thoughts???
  • mtech8mtech8 Posts: 4
    Really depends on when you ordered the car.

    If it's May 9th or prior, then the deal isn't so hot. But if it's after, then it's good. (Price increase on most BMW's except X6, 1 series and M3 as of June 1st 2008 OR May 10th for ordered cars).

    I'd try to buy one off the lot right now with the same set-up and shoot for $56,330 to $56,830. Very fair offer.
  • topgun26topgun26 Posts: 16
    good luck getting those numbers, maybe off lot you can but def not with ordering one. This was before the price increase.
  • rezfrezf Posts: 29
    I have been told from my sources that Ffor cars purchased or leased from 5/9/08-6/30/08 BMW is offering a cash back, which your dealer may not be willing to share with you. The program is called "Option Credit" and basically BMWNA will reimburse the equivalent price of the Premium Package on the X5 at the time of purchase. This translates to $2505 off on the X5 3.0 and $1595 off for the X5 4.8. You can still be eligible for this offer even of the prospective car your are considering to purchase is not equipped with premium package. Once you negotiate your lowest price, then deduct the above amounts from your car and that should be your bottom price. Shrewd negotiators can take advantage of this and get themselves an x5 for below invoice. Now, go to your dealerships and give them hell :)
  • topgun26topgun26 Posts: 16
    didnt know about that when I went to order it on 5/11. Is it too late if I already ordered the car and put a $1000 deposit down on the car?
  • bwphotonbwphoton Posts: 2
    I haven't purchased a new vehicle in 13 years, and am a little rusty. And am also female and wonder if bringing along a "XY chromosome combo" is necessary. I am now in a Land Rover Discovery and am thinking hard about a BMW X5 3.0 (still need that 3rd row seating!), but don't want to go w/ L. Rover again. Am also considering BMW 5 Series wagon or Audi A4 Avant (if give up 3rd row seating ), or Audi Q7 if stick w/ the 3rd row seats. I have been quoted the following for a 08 X5 3.0 :
    base MSRP $45,900
    Premium Pack 2,750
    Rear Climate Control 900
    Rear Seat 1700
    iPod connect 400
    money down= 5,300 (tax and license )
    and will include Sat radio and mats
    2.9% at $973/month
    I mentioned the BMW NA incentive for cash back on premium package and it was clear I wouldn't get an answer until it was clear I was further committed to the X5.
