    It says "BMW Drive for Team USA Allowance is available on all new 2012 and 2013 BMW models". And also confirmed with my CA that it can be used for X3.

    Are there any other incentives besides Drive for Team USA, I heard there is a $1000 incentive if you get the loan through BMW Finance. Please post your comments. Also, any input on Houston area deals greatly appreciated.

    Has everyone gotten a $599 Doc Fee? Are you able to negotiate it? I'm seeing it from everyone in the southeast and nobody is budging.
  • stactumstactum Posts: 39
    In IL where I got the car doc fee was $161.38 from any dealer I talked to (for purchase). For lease it might be different. But $599 seems high.

    Sounds like GA or FL...

    Not worth trying to negotiate them.. .just know it's coming, and factor that into what you are willing to pay for the vehicle..

    I buy almost all of my new vehicles in Ohio, which restricts the fee to $250. Of course, almost every dealer will tell you that the $250 is required or mandatory. I know it's coming, so I just adjust my offers down by $250.

    Can anyone share any recent 2012 X3 28i price paid or quoted recently from dealers around SF Bay area? I am looking at the base model with not much added options.
  • mizer1mizer1 Posts: 5
    Sweet. So this is not a BMW mandate - it is whatever the state will let the dealership get away with (yes it is GA - @ the person who speculated GA or FL). So if I'm buying new with a custom order - picking it up from the factory in SC - I should be able to negotiate with a dealership out of state and pay the lower doc fee. Anyone know of a state lower than IL @ $161?

    I am doing the Drive Team BMW this weekend for my $1000 off. Is it correct this is generic cert with some unique number that can be used any any dealership - not just the one I do my drive at? That will impact my doc angle above. I read a post saying it comes by email 2 weeks later. Anyone have a different experience where they get it faster.
  • mizer1mizer1 Posts: 5
    Can anyone recommend a dealership they have purchased from that gives some sharp offers? Seems like OH or IL would be good options for me due to lower doc fees ($161-250) with factory pickup. Would prefer canvasing every dealership in a state with low doc fees...
  • nyccarguynyccarguy Stamford, CTPosts: 11,334
    New York has a doc fee cap of $75. I live in CT and bought my '11 328xi from a dealer in NY because CT dealers charge a conveyance (DOC fee). Good luck!

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 64,880
    I wouldn't assume that I could get the vehicle cheaper in a state with a lower doc fee...

    That's all revenue for the dealer.. If the GA dealer charges $600, then all things being equal, they should be able to put a selling price of $500 less than a dealer with a $100 doc fee...

    It's the total cost that matters.... focus on that, and not how they get to it..

    Wow. Seems like a pretty good deal. Is that out the door including tax and all?

    Did you ever find out what the new incentive is? Only thing I see out there is $1k for recent college grad.
  • mizer1mizer1 Posts: 5
    Confirming it works on X3's. Just got mine and applied it to my sales order. The date varies by region. They move from dealership to dealership across the country. In July they are in the NY area.

    I had to post my price on here since this forum helped me negotiate my price in Phoenix AZ:

    Premium Package
    Heated Seats

    Thanks for the posts. The first dealership was giving me 2% off and told me it was a good deal. The Costco price was 4% off MSRP. I told them I was looking for 7% off and I thought this was a good offer.

    Here's what I ordered (pretty nicely I think). First time ordering exactly what I wanted! Happy with the deal too but have the option to get June rates if better as the X3 is arriving next month. I think it's about 8.5% discount including the extra $1000. If anyone knows the exact math would appreciate as well as if you think this is a good lease deal.

    2013 X3 xDrive28i: w/ Sport Activity Package, Convenience Package, Cold Weather Package, Premium Package, Technology Package, Sirius Radio 1 yr
    Black Sapphire Metallic, Mojave Leather, Fineline Wave Wood Trim

    MSRP: $50,095
    Selling Price: $45,915 (includes $1000 Drive Team USA discount)
    $1000 Cap Cost Reduction (additional drive off cash from me-normally wouldn't do but will be applying for a mortgage re-fi soon and need the payment under $700)
    Net Cap Cost: $44,915
    55% (15K miles-$27,552 residual)
    MF: .00190 (4.56%)
    36 months
    Payment: $619.99
    CA Tax: 8.75%: $54.25
    Total Payment: $674.24

    Drive off $3004.11 which includes bank Fee $725, Doc Fee $45, First payment, DMV, 0.00 Sec Deposit and my $1K Cap reduction. They are including a new set of BMW X3 all weather floor mats at drive off.

    Anyone know about last minute Memorial Day Loyalty incentives? I just got a letter from BMW in the mail announcing but not specifiying (of course).
  • pallabpallab Posts: 1
    Hi Car_Man and Others, I am in MA and I am looking for a 2013 X3 xDrive35i with the following :

    Titanium Silver Metallic
    Black Nevada Leather
    Fineline Wave Wood Trim
    Cold Weather Package
    Cold Weather Package II
    Premium Package
    Technology Package

    What would be a good lease amount for 36 months (10K/year mileage) ?
    How would it be different if instead I went for a 28i with similar features/upgrades ?

    Also, I have 2 other BMW's ? Do I qualify for some BMW loyalty program, and if yes,
    how much rebate can I expect ? Also, is there any other rebate/program that is
    going on, or I can qualify for ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi guys,
    I received the following quote from one of the dealer for a 2013 X28i- can you please let me know if this sounds about right.
    MSRP - 48,595
    Selling Price - 46,638
    Residual - 57%
    Fees in all - $380

    with ZERO down - they are asking for $779 per month for 36 omnths with 12K miles.
    Can I go any lower? Please advise as I need to close this deal by MOnday.
  • jmcbmwjmcbmw Posts: 77
    I asked the same question about loyalty incentives and was told nothing on the X3 right now other than the $1000, good toward any new BMW if you went to the Drive Team USA event.
  • shin2sxshin2sx Posts: 3
    Ordered this last night

    -Carbon Black / Mojave interior
    -Premium Pack
    -Cold Weather Pack I / II
    -Convenience Pack
    -Technology Pack
    -M Sport Pack

    MSRP: 52,045
    Invoice: 47,825
    Price: 48,353 - 1000 (drive for team USA discount) = 47,353.

    around 9% off MSRP.

    after tax tag doc fee, I got 49,100 OTD. Pretty good price I thought.
  • mroctobermroctober Posts: 21
    What's the sales tax in your state? with CA sales tax 8.75% the deal looks ok for top tier credit and absolutely 0 out the door (1st pmt, acquisition fee, ttl, misc).

    If you can find another acceptable alternative at another dealership and ready to walk away from this deal, I would say it's not hard to go $10~15/mo. lower.

    Happy deal'n
  • jremorejremore Posts: 1
    I'm in NE CT and am willing to travel to MA, RI, etc to find the best deal. Any recommendations? The 2 dealers I have been to are only willing to go 5% below MSRP and I think I can do 7%.

    I've been working off of dealer invoice from, but the dealer always has their additional advertising, etc fees they want to include.
  • I have 2012 BMW X3 xDrive28i with 3,700 miles on it offered for 33K. Not many options other than sunroof. Is it a good deal?
  • curious about the BMW Drive USA incentive .

    is that apply to anyone? or just whoever got the letter?
  • We are trying to buy this 2013 X3 28i by the end of this month

    Jet Black
    Premium Package
    Convienience Package
    Technology Package
    Heated Front seats
    Satin Aluminum Roof Rail

    MSRP 48345

    Dealer gimme this finally selling price 46025

    with CA's sales tax it would be 50165 OTD price

    How's this deal?

    PS: If this is not working out. I want to order the carbon black color

    is the M sport package worth it?
  • philliniphillini Posts: 5
    I went to the webpage and signed up, having lost the letter from many months before. I was able to choose the location and time. Got a confirmation email with a day or two. Driving in the event this Saturday (6/23/2012).
  • myxmyx Posts: 1
    love my M package. Seats are nicer and better steering wheel. Plus the 19in rims look good. My problem is that I only have had it 3 weeks and this is the third time it has been in the dealership for loud noisy engine. sounds like a diesel. BMW are trying to tell me that this is normal.
  • shin2sxshin2sx Posts: 3
    My msrp was 52045. my purchase price was 47500 - 1000 drive team USA event..

    my otd was 48300 at the end..

    But my sales tax in VA is 3%.. compared to CA tax..
    I think you have more room to negotiate definitely.. I'd try to go below invoice..
  • stactumstactum Posts: 39
    It is normal. Mine sounds kind of like diesel on idle. Check more on check X Bimmers Forum, but it is what it is.
