Can anyone share what they are paying for an X3 3.0 and 2.5 with metallic paint, xenons, heated seats and premium package? Any ideas what dealers are giving off? Is there a noticeable difference between the power of the 3.0 and 2.5. thanks .

    We exchanged emails last week regarding the 2.5 or 3.0 of the X3. I went back to the dealership and this is what they told me on the lease:

    X3 3.0
    Blue Exterior/Black Leatherette Interior
    Auto Trans
    Privacy Glass
    Prep for Satellite Radio

    MSRP is $37,895

    Lease info is:

    12k miles for 3 years
    2500 down plus tax on that
    1st payment due at signing
    $400 Refundable deposit

    Monthly lease payment comes to $399.21. This includes tax.

    If we want to purchase it at the end of the lease, the cost would be $23,500

    Take delivery of vehicle on 7/10/05.

    Please let me know your thoughts.

    I paid $41700 for my Blue Water X3 3.0 with Premuim, Cold Weather packages and adaptive Xenon lights. This includes destination charges, but paid Tax/Title/Reg. extra.

    I paid $37,626 for 3.0, standard, premium, metalic,xenon,and privacy glass with European delivery. This was $1726 over ED invoice price.

    I ordered an X3, European Delivery with: Cold weather, premium and sport packages, Steptronic transmission, Servotronic steering, rear door airbags, style 114 wheels, power folding mirrors, park distance control, xenons, navigation, premium sound, privacy glass, metallic paint for $44,815
  • Our Silver Grey is somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic right now. We ordered a 2.5, premium package, heated seats, privacy glass, steptronic, cargo net. $36,000 and they threw in carpeted and rubber winter mats along with a mini bmw ride-on car for our baby on the way. I could have paid less at a dealer further away, but I elected to pay more from the closer dealer with the better reputation.

    Got $2000 off MSRP plus floormats on an X3 3.0 6-speed with premium, heated seats, privacy glass.
  • jjmanjjman Posts: 77
    which came out to ~1300 off the 44.6 k x3 3.0 with most options. Not sure if I can get better, but bart001 seems to have. Maybe I can get them to include alarm, homelink and xm
  • I am thinking of getting an X3 sometime between now and November. Is there a "best" time during the year to negotiate a good deal on an X3 (or a BMW in general)?

    For instance, when will BMW switch over to the 2005 model year? I presume that if I can find a 2004 I like in stock when the 2005 models are coming out, then I might get a better deal.

    What if I want to order an X3? Is there a particular time during the year when dealers are more flexible on pricing?

    I would appreciate any advice that X3 or other BMW buyers could offer.

    I am also doing a ED on an x3 in early June. Please post your experience on the ED for BMW, if you are going before then. Thanks

    Got X3 2.5, Euro Delivery, premium package, cold weather package, leather and metallic paint for 33,800.
  • artsdocartsdoc Posts: 1
    For black metallic, 3.0, automatic, premium package, xenon, mats, roof bike racks, and all taxes/delivery fees (including 8.25% sales tax), we wrote a check for $45K even.
  • atortoroatortoro Posts: 13
    hello, did anyone purchased a 2.5 model and how much did you pay for it?? lease monthly payment would be appreciated too!
    thanks alot
  • a4s2000a4s2000 Posts: 9
    I just ordered my X3 2.5 tonight. Options: metallic paint, premium package, heated seats, privacy glass. List $37,645, paying $36,785. Not the best deal, I know, but I just wanted to get over with (actually got a quote on the same car for $300 less from a dealer about 20 miles away). I'm financing so don't know what leases are running now. Good luck.
  • atortoroatortoro Posts: 13
    Thank you a4s2000 for your help!
    enjoy your X3 =)
  • araccasiaraccasi Posts: 1
    i just bought an X3 2.5i, 6 speed, premium package, privacy glass, heated seats, leather seats with jet blak paint. The price was 35,525. The joke was, at first the dealer only gave me 880 off. I ended up getting 1570 off. That proves anyone can get a better deal than what is offered!
  • does anyone know of a website that posts the 2004 Model Year - X3 Confidential Wholesale Price info that details out the invoice prices for the following X3 US Model categories:

    Base Price USA Port of Entry
    Base Price ED Price Munich Pick up
    Base Price Diplomatic USA Port of Entry

    This document issued by BMW also includes option and package invoice prices.

    Thanks much.
  • Hi aukema! To me it seems like you got a very good price indeed, may I ask where you bought it?

    I'm a Swede currently living in Madrid, and I'm just about to by a X3 in the US and have it shipped over here. All in all, it's a lot cheaper than in Spain due to the €/$ exchange rates. Obviously I'd prefer to pick it up anywhere in Europe, but I didn't even know about the possibility of European Delivery. Is it available at any BMW dealer in the US?

    Thanks for the help,

  • bmwman2bmwman2 Posts: 12
    Swede in Spain,

    The euro delivery is a great program! The problem that you will have is that it is only for USA customers.

    Since the Euro BMW is sold my BMWAG and the USA version is sold by BMWNA, you will not have warranty coverage , except in the USA.

    Other countries may have a euro delivery program... You may check with your local BMW Center.

    Good luck !
  • I already checked that with BMW Iberica, and they told me that although I couldn't transfer the 4-year, no maintenance package to Spain, I could get the minimum 2-year warranty all new cars have over here.

    My local BMW center wants me to pay 54.600€ (approx. $64.430!) for the version I'm interested in, and I've already got quotes from US dealers who offer the exact same vehicle for $37.000.

    If on top of that I could have the car delivered in Europe under the ED program, I'd even save the freight cost from New York to Spain.

    Even after adding the ridiculous taxes were forced to pay over here, the total price shouldn't come to more than $50.000. If I can have it delivered through the ED program, I could cut that to maybe $45.000, some $20k cheaper than over here...

    We bought an X3 3.0 (black metallic; automatic; premium package; privacy glass; heated seats) and paid $39,995 before taxes/title.

    It's on a Web site that I think would be considered a competing forum so I can't post it here. Our host might be able to make the call...hint: it has the word "fest" in the url.

    If I can't post the url, I'll see if I can find the numbers later this evening and I'll post them here.

    I will be ordering X3 before the end of the month.

    This is last quote from the last dealership after 5 that i visited.

    Let me know guys if this is a good deal.

    Silver grey
    panorama moonRoof
    heated Seats
    heated steering wheel

    msrp $41,920
    Dealer Price to me $38,500
    lease with/ 15,000 miles
    450.00 A month

    Can anybody let me know if this is a good deal or not. Thank You
  • sup44sup44 Posts: 3
    According to my calculations using KBlueBook, your MSRP is $40,695. Not $41,920. Even with the adjustment of the MSRP you have a good deal if you are not putting more than $1,500 down. I would need to know what you are putting down to give my opinion. I use for reference when leasing. The have a great lease kit.

    I just started getting quotes today. I am turning in a 325cic and getting the X3 2.5 for the wife. So far, I have
    $490 a month
    12k miles a year
    $1,500 down.
    MSRP $40,970

    This works out to about $1000 above invoice and $2,405 below MSRP.

    HI Kyfdx,
    Thx for the quick reply, Can I just walk into any dealer and ask them to pull up a vehicle report based on the Vin? Also the delearship in question "advantage certified" tells me that they are the largest Independent dealer in the US. their website is . Hev you come across them or has anyone else here?? Considering all else checks out (car and dealer) u think 1K below their asking will be a good deal? thx in advance

  • kyfdxkyfdx Everywhere, USAPosts: 126,124
    Tell us the MSRP, and we may have many thoughts....

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    Obviously, those of you who waited until now to purchase an X3 are doing far, far better than those of us who purchased in January, February, and even early March. Then, none of us knew what the availability would be, and we were anxious - anxious enough to pay top dollar. Kudos to all of you!
