2013 and earlier BMW X5 Lease Questions



  • I'm trying to get the invoice price for 2013 X5d, but Edmonds doesn't have it for 2013 only 2012. Is there any other way to get invoice and pricing?
  • habitat1habitat1 Posts: 4,282
    According to BMW USA's website, the 2013 is the same base MSRP as the 2012 (i.e.$56,700). I would expect the invoice to be the same or very similar. The only difference I am aware of is that they dropped the eco credit from $4,500 to $3,000.
  • Thanks habitat. The BMW website still has the $4500 Eco credit.

    Another question, there are no X5d with Sport package, so I have to order if I want it. Why is that? Does it ride rough? I can't drive one to see how they feel compared to not having Sport package.

    By "sport package", I assume you mean sport activity package. On the X5d, that package does not have any different suspension than the base model. The wheels go from 18" to 19" with slightly lower profile tires. I don't think there is any noticeable difference in the roughness of the ride. The handling of the X5 is already better than all competitors, save for the Cayenne, and that remains the same or very slightly improved.

    There is a further $900+/- option with the sport activity package to go to 20" wheels and wider, staggered tires. I drove one of those and, again, if you could tell a handling improvement, it was very minor. But there was a bit more road noise and the cost of tire replacement would go up by 50%+, given lower tread life and inability to rotate front to rear. Not worth it, in my opinion.
  • Thanks again Habitat,

    So I'll probably end up ordering the car on Wednesday or Thursday, if we can get the numbers o base rate MF and about $1000 over invoice, plus Loyalty and Holiday Credit.

    This is my target:
    2013 X5d
    Black Sapphire Metallic
    Cinnamon Brown Leather
    Premium package
    Sport Package
    Space Saver tire

    Msrp $63,695
    Invoice $58,610

    My offer price:

    -$4500 Eco
    -$1500 holiday
    -$750 loyalty
    $52,660 net lease price.
    MF .00125
    I think residual 55% for 36 months 15k miles

    That's pretty close to the vehicle we have: Black/Oyster, Premium, Sport, Running Boards, BMW apps.

    I wish we would have gotten the spare tire kit; and will probably add that, along with tow package, in the spring. I would recommend BMW Apps if you have i-Phone, and the running boards look good and are pretty cheap ($300 vs. double that for Acura). I find them helpful when washing the roof/windshield.

    Regarding Cinnamon Brown interior, I may have mentioned this before, but if you haven't already done so, that's a color that you need to see in person, in daylight. Somebody in this or another X5 forum ordered it off a photo and was disappointed to the point of not wanting to take the vehicle upon arrival.
  • Habitat,

    Thanks for your suggestions, although they keep costing me money haha :) So what does the BMW apps do with the iPhone? I read the description on site but was not real clear. Running boards, you convinced me :)
  • Hey gatorchomp. The acquisition fee that you were quoted is being marked up $200. The money factor that you were quoted is not being marked up though. That's a lot more important.

    As far as the selling price goes, you're probably at around $1,000 over invoice. That's not bad, but might be able to be beaten if you're in an area that has a decent level of competition.

    All in all, I'd say that this is a pretty good deal.

  • Is the Eco Credit $3000 or $4500 for 2013 X5d? I thought it is $3000 now.
  • As far as I know, it's $4500 for 2012 X5d and $3000 for 2013 X5d

    Hi Car Man,

    Can you please provide the current residual & MF rates for the following?

    2013 X5 35d with 10k miles/year for 36, 42 & 48 months
    2012 X5 35d with 10k miles/year for 36, 42 & 48 months

  • Just as a follow up I leased a BMW 2013 x5 premium package w/ the following:

    $62,500 MSRP
    $4,500 down
    $699 month
    36 months
    12K miles a year

    Good luck and I feel as if I scored a really good deal.
  • About to pull the trigger on this deal, thoughts?:

    2013 x5 d
    10k miles
    36 mo
    61195 msrp
    Can get down another 20-40/mo with MSD's
    Tax, tags,bank upfront

  • This site has been so informative in helping me to make the best choices on my new X5. I did pull the trigger last night on a 39 month lease. Now that I am going back over the paperwork I am not able to come up with the lease payment I was given by the dealership. I am hopeful that those more educated in leasing can offer insight.

    2013 BMW X5 xDrive35i Premium
    Convenience Package
    Cold Weather Package
    Satellite Radio
    Running Boards

    MSRP $61,370

    I negotiated a price of $$57,415, roughly $340 over invoice from the research I did on Edmunds.

    The dealership charged an acquisition fee of $775 (drove me nuts that they were charging more than the $725 from BMW FS but they refused to budge). Money Factor was .00155, again higher than standard but I was ok paying ~$16 more per month with the discounted price tag. The sales tax in MD is 6%.

    Dealer Processing $200
    Title, License, Registration Fees $344
    Sales Tax $3,456.90

    Holiday Credit $1,500
    Trade-In Value $12,254

    15,000 mile lease for 39 months at $548.36/month.

    I have been unable to figure out how they came up with that payment. Any advice on the purchase price or leasing calculation?

    Hi lovemynewbmw,

    Did you put your trade as a down payment? Everything I have read, says to only put first months, taxes a few fees. But interesting how their payment is so low. What was the residual percentage?
  • mlevinemlevine Posts: 349
    Assuming nothing down and walking out of the dealer with the vehicle. The acquisition fee, license/registartion fee, and processing fee cannot be residualized. They are paid up front as money down or some can be added to the lease payment after the monthly pre tax number is calculated. Need to calculate the cap cost from the negotiated price minus your trade in value. The trade in value may be lower if up front fees are taken out of this value. I hope this helps. More details of you lease may allow better evaluation of your numbers.
  • Hey socal59 and laavram. The Eco Credit on the X5 diesel is $3,500 in January.

  • I'd be happy to help you out naj14. BMW Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 X5 35d with 10,000 miles per year are .00130 and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 42-month lease are .00130 and 47%.

    The numbers for the 2012 model are .00125 / 52% for 36-months and .00125 / 44% for 42-months.

    BMW is not providing lease support on 48-month leases of either model.

  • I'm looking for the best deal on a 36mos; 10k mi/yr; $5k down.
    TMV is $53,711, but dealers are asking $57k.
    Is is possible to drive them down to pmts at $600 (including tax) and the upfront total out of pocket $5k (inclusive of tax, title, etc.) ?
    If not, how can I best tweak the deal?
  • Hi Car Man,
    I have never leased a car before and am interested in leasing a BMW X5 xDrive 35i. Standard options with a navigation system, heated front seats, and satellite radio. I will have a trade in and am just completely unsure how the leasing process works and if there is a way to negotiate to get lower monthly payments, what questions to ask, etc.

    I have similar vehicle with msrp of $62,795. I got them down to $685/mo inclusive of MA sales tax with $2124 due at signing. I leased mine in Nov so i took advantage of year end sales event. I think you still have room to negotiate. Good luck!
  • HI Guys

    Looking for some advice on the purchase of a 2012 X5 35i. the car comes with Premium Sound Package, Premium Package, Executive Package, Metallic Color, Nevada Leather and Walnut wood Trip. I'm in montreal and looking to purchase this vehicle for $55900. Do you think that this is a reasonable price for a 2012(with 0 km) taking into account the value of the depreciation of buying a 2012 vs 2013 and taking into account that the 2014 redisgned models are only a few months away. Finally would you recommend purchasing the extended warranty?

    Thank You

  • Welcome lease1sttime. Since you are new to leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles on the subject that are available here at 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    In short, the easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor.

    If you have a trade-in, negotiate the amount that the dealer is giving you for that separately from your new vehicle deal. Also, have the dealer cut you a check for any equity that you have in your trade rather than using the proceeds from it as a down payment for your lease. It's never a good idea to make a large down payment on a leased vehicle.

  • Hi Car Man,

    Looking for some advice on the lease of a 2013 X5 xDrive35i. At the end of February I will be in the market for this car, and I need to know the February money factor and the residual on this car for 36 month lease with 10k miles per year.

    Thank in advance, this will be very helpful to be able to defend myself in the process.

    This sounds way too high and they are not budging, this is pretty much the same number im getting at 5 different dealers in the area.

  • Hi Jorge. BMW Financial Services' February buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 X5 xDrive35i Premium with 10,000 miles pr year are .00130 and 60% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

  • Hi nmora. Taking a quick glance at this offer, the selling price, money factor and acquisition fee that you were quoted all look great. I don't think that you're going to be able to do much better on this truck. If this payment is still too high, you may want to consider getting a different vehicle.

  • Hi Car_man, thank for your respond but, the February residual for the 2013 X5 xDrive35i (base model) is the same that the (premium model) 60%?


  • Hi CarMan,
    Can you post the residuals and buy rate on money factor from BMW Financial for 2013 X5 35D with 10k miles/year? Helping a friend order one - eco credit is $3500, trying to figure out why residual is so much lower than the non-diesel model.
