2013 and earlier BMW X5 Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • $4000 was the total out of pocket expenses. 2012 premium models have added a lot more equipment making for a higher base MSRP price.
  • Looks like has the new 2012 pricing and options packages up. I believe the cold weather package includes the heated steering wheel however it is not listed.

    Looks like the 35d is not up yet. the URL still has 2011 in it.
  • The 2012 35d will not be available until October, there are varying theories as to why the diesel is being held back, but the bottom line is that it's a 2011 until then. I bought a 2011 35d on March 31st. I found a Platinum Grey with Black interior at a dealer about 1 hour from my home (Open Road BMW in Edison,NJ), here are the details:

    Premium Pkg
    Convenience Pkg
    Technology Pkg
    Cold Weather Pkg
    Rear Climate Pkg
    Roof Rails
    Running Boards
    IPod/USB & Satellite Radio

    MSRP - $61,825
    Paid - $54,033

    Negotiated to within a couple hundred of invoice then included the Eco Credit (which is extended at least through May) to end up at just over $54k. I also used Bank of America (3.49% for 72 months is advertised, actual APR ended up at 3.67% - still better than BMW Financial's 4.9% for 72 months on the diesel). The 2012 will include a few more options (in a config similar to the one above) for about the same price; but I didn't want to wait until October for BMW Apps, Comfort Access Key and a HiFi system. The diesel will work out for me as well...even at around $.20 more per gallon than gasoline, I'll save $600 per year, driving 2k miles per month (23 mpg for diesel vs. 19 mpg for gasoline). Plus the torque on the diesel is outstanding!

    I was quoted $38K on a 2008 3.0si with premium and cold weather package. I know it has some room for negotiation. Could someone let me know what ballpark would be a good OTD price and what I should start with? Thanks!

    Advice on pricing please - I met with my BMW dealer in NYC yesterday. I'm leasing another X5 (this will be my 3rd one). Dealer quote is listed below. It seems fair to me, but I welcome any advice:

    MSRP $54,800
    Conv. Package
    3rd Row
    Running Boards
    10k/yr mileage
    36 mos.
    MF .00155
    $4,260 down (includes all taxes and fees)
    Adj. Cap Cost: $58,595
    $755/mo (does not include taxes in monthly pmt)

    Is that CAP cost a typo?

    $4260 upfront, and the CAP is more than the MSRP?

    When are we expecting 2012 models and if there are current incentives?
  • mets86mets86 Posts: 12
    Sorry - yes, it was a typo. The MSRP is $61,175 and the CAP is $58,595. Please advise your thoughts. Thanks.
  • 2011 X5 35d + premium package + 3rd row seats + PDC + roof rail, MSRP 58675, dealer's best price is 52795 including eco credit. I am in Seattle, seems not a good place to get best deal. Thanks

    Met with a BMW dealer in SW Connecticut (near NYC). They said the best price that they could offer is 52,755. This is for the premium package without any other options/upgrades. Additional costs were DMV fee $175; Doc fee $275; and 6% state tax. Does anyone think that this is a good price?

  • Ran your config thru the Zag buying tool offered by USAA, AAA and Amex among others (basically a no haggle, car buying service for members). According to them, the best price they have is $53,445 (incl. Eco Credit), so I think you're doing well with the quote you have. It seems Seattle is a tough place to get a deal, same config in PA comes up at $51,645...sorry...

    I suggested it earlier to others try 1 click auto brokers in denver....look them up....they can handle these things and test your pricing....they seem fair and reasonable from my dealings with them and I am not an agent or associated with anyone..
  • mlevinemlevine Posts: 354
    In southeast florida slim pickings on X5 35i including base, premium and sport. More 35d available, but also hard to find. Any units available thiere is basically no discount except eco credit for diesel. I see alot of retired folks driving them, why they do not get into the cadillac or toyota small SUV I cannot understand. Good luck with finding a X5, I may go with ML mercedes benz.

    I am trying to figure out a good price point for the BMW 535 Gran Turismo. I don't mind ordering this from a dealer located outside of Texas as long as I get a better deal. Let me know. Thanks all!
  • cembarcembar Posts: 1
    I'm planning to order the 2011 X5 diesel with Premium package only. I heard that 2012 will not be out till later in the year. I've received several quotes and the best one I have so far is $ 53,000 (including the eco-credit and all other charges & sales taxes). MSRP for that car is $56,075 (inc. destination).

    Do you think it's a good deal? Or do you think I should wait till October to order 2012 X5 Diesel instead?

    Thank you!
  • kackikacki Posts: 18
    Sales taxes vary, so am talking round(ed) numbers here. Assuming taxes and fees add 9% to the overall price, that means you have a net of about $48,000. Taking away eco credit (is it still 3500?) from 56000, you have 52500, which means a discount of 4500, which is about 8% of msrp, which IMO is really good.

    Double check your numbers and mine and if they jibe, then go for it.

    The D for 2012 will be out around Sep/Oct and will probably have mostly cosmetic/electronic changes, LED coronas and BMW Apps being the most significant of these. No drivetrain changes AFAIK.

    Hi. I've priced the X5 premium pkg at close to 4 dealerships in nj and $52,755 is a low price, even w/o additional upgrades. The premium pkg also includes many options so you don't need to add much more. If you don't mind, can you give me the name of the dealership in SW Ct?

  • greg157greg157 Posts: 4

    I read my dates wrong. I didn't see your 5/29 posting. With all the upgrades you got, that's a great all-in cost. Please let me know what dealership you went with. Thx.

  • ttopper1ttopper1 Posts: 18
    If you are paying for all the options at invoice not retail pricing that's good. Plus, if you are paying $500 to $1000 over invoice that's about as good as you can expect.

    Another option is use a broker like
    A-1 click in Denver....they have options for dealers all over the U.S.

    Hope this helps a little....

    Premium Package
    Ipod & Usb Adaptor
    Roof Rails

    Is this a good deal or should we be doing better? We are comparing to the Mercedes ML350 Bluetec and Lexus RX450h. Thanks for the help.

    I have negotiated a deal on '11 X5d for $500 over dealer invoice (including the $3,500 eco credit) which normally I'd be very pleased with. However, I know from several sources that the dealer will also earn a $1,600 +/- dealer holdback credit bringing their net profit up to $2,000+, well above what they should earn on any car. But several buying web sites suggest that dealers will not share in this credit and that it's off the table. Is this true or should I push harder?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 66,831
    BMW doesn't have dealer holdback...

    They do have customer service bonuses, etc.., but, it's doubtful you can deal on any of that money.. $500 over invoice, minus the $3500 Eco-credit is a pretty good price, IMO....

    Hello - I was curious of what you thought of my deal two posts up? (1911)

    In your most recent post are you saying a good deal would be close to invoice, and the $3500 Eco credit, which would make it much less than invoice?
