    How does this deal sound?

    2012 X3 28i
    Metallic paint
    Tech Package
    Premium Package

    MSRP: $44,925
    Sale price: $42,000

    36 month lease (10k miles/yr):
    $3415 due at signing (includes 1st payment and taxes)

    Residual is $26,056 (58%)

    Is there more room here? I pretty sure there is by the reaction of the sales rep when I got up to leave, but I'm wondering how much lower I can get it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
  • Planning to buy a new X3. I am getting 2,500 below the MSRP price for 2012 X3. Is this a good deal, or can it go further down
  • Depends on what packages the car has. What is the MSRP? Which dealer are you shopping?

    I'm strongly considering becoming a first time BMW customer and looking at X3. Lives in metro-NYC and seem that NY dealers are generally best option for price given capped documentation fees. Long Island and other outlying NY suburban dealers appear to be the best on price.

    What I can't really figure out, is what negotiating leverage is. AmEx buying program has some dealers willing to quote at $600 over invoice and the lowest I have see is $500 over. Consumer Reports suggests that dealer holdbacks can allow as much as a $1,000 swing below invoice, for dealers to break even

    Inventory is limited but new order lead times appear to be in the 3-6 week range. I understand this is a very popular SUV and that leverage may be in dealers' favor but does anyone have tips on what I might be missing?
  • I am getting quotes in the Chicago area for a 2011 or 2012 BMW X3 28i, silver ext, black interior, premium pkg, convenience pkg, climate pkg, and park distance control. When I build at BMW USA, I get a MRSP of $44,875. I am a current BMW owner. What should I negotiate for this car. Also, what should I negotiate for the lease for lease factor and residual for 36 mts $12k miles. Thanks!

    They might quote you dealer that are further away but then you can take the number to local and see if they'll match it. If not, you can decide if the loaner service of the local dealer is worth the difference. I got my 2011 a few months ago for $1k over invoice.

    Also join club, after 1 year of membership you can get $500 back for buying X3.
  • My X3 3.0 has 43,0 miles and I 4 year warranty is up next week. I wish I knew what the top price would be if I sold it. If I could get top dollar for it I would upgrade to a new X3 28i. Took one for a short ride, but not sure if it drives as nice as the one I have. I love me present X3 and it rides like a top. The new model doesn't seem to have that same feel in the ride and visibility is bad? Does anyone have a 2012 already. I was wondering if you liked it. Only took a demo for test ride as dealers have not received many so far. I wanted to trade up in a week.
  • I've driven the older model vs brand new model back to back and think the new model is much nicer. It could be that you have a different suspension package or just different tires or even seats can make a difference. Consult for pricing. You are unlikely to get private party value if you sell it yourself, since you cannot offer financing or a warranty. Look at trade in values.

    There is a "Real World Trade in Values" thread on town hall where they'll give you a pretty accurate value of your X3's value as long as you give a very detailed description. Selling a car privately can be a hassle if it is over a certain dollar amount (maybe $10K) which your X3 is worth more.

    2001 Prelude Type SH, 2011 Pilot EX-L 4WD, 2015 Infiniti G37x Q40 AWD

  • 2012 X3 28i:

    Metallic paint
    Cold Weather Package
    Tech Package
    Premium Package

    MSRP: $45,625
    Purchase price: $42,250

    No trade-in, no financing.

    Given how fast these are flying off the shelves right now, I don't think I could have gotten any lower.

    I currently have an M Roadster, which I am absolutely keeping.
  • Carman,

    I am considering purchasing a 2012 X3 3.5. I reside in the Dallas area. Can you tell me what the current incentives/rebates are for this vehicle. I saw on Edmunds $1000 loyalty cash back and on another website $455 Option Credit? Also if the MSRP of the X3 is $55,125. With the current market supply/demand, incentives, dealer holdback, would a good deal for the purchase price be below invoice? The invoice of the vehicle I'm interested in is: $50,715. Reading some of the other recent posts, I'm seeing some people negotiating below invoice. And is it really ture the best time to negotiate the best deal is on the last Saturday of the month, or even better, the last Saturday or week in December because the dealers need to make their sales quotas. Thanks Carman.
  • Anyone know what money facotor/residual is for a 2012 X3? Also, what should i be oaying for a 36 month 12k/yr lease- want tioput as little down as possible. thx

    Anyone custom order an X3 and go to Spartensburg, SC to take delivery? I just got turned on to the X3 from a Consumer's Report on the qualify, etc. Looking at a 3i with special paint and a lot of options. Seems to be a wonderful car for 2012, with great gas mileage.
  • rnmtrnmt Posts: 11
    I did and i could not be happier about my choice. I custom ordered my car, took about 30 days to build it and picked it up in SC. The experience at the BMW center when you decide to take delivery in SC is worth it alone. The car itself is awesome.
  • Just ordered a new 2012 BMW x3 2.8i with the following options
    Space Gray with Oyster Navada Leather
    Premium Package
    Cold Weather package
    Convenience Package
    Technology Package
    MSRP $47,595
    My dealer said $44, in NJ with all taxes....$4000 down, 15K Miles a year for $645 a month 36 month. Is this a good deal ?? Loyal BMW owner

    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.

    Black Saphhire
    Black Nevada Interior
    Tech Pkg
    Premum Pkg

    MSRP is 54,895. Good deal? Comments?
  • stactumstactum Posts: 39
    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.

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