2013 x5d order placed
 
Major options were premium package, sports activity, cold weather, and premium sound. I skipped adaptive drive in spite of all the advice to get it.

Negotiated 1K over invoice (about $62K), then took the $3K eco credit, $1.5K holiday cash,and $1K usaa discount. Should be built during the first or second week of December.

I'm considering calling on Monday to change to 20" wheels since I plan to find a used set of 18's or 19's for snow tires. Also need to settle on a hitch (dealer installed or self installed).

Looking forward to have Santa deliver our x-mas present...

You have a '13 DIESEL coming before the end of the year? I thought that the '13 Diesels would not be available before February (or so)

finnbmw 11-18-2012 03:36 PM

2013 diesels start production in December with deliveries 2-3 weeks after that :dunno:

Yes, a '13 diesel. It has status of 112 - Scheduled for daily production pack. Based on the sheet I saw at the dealer, it is listed for build in week 49.

I'd skip on the 20" and get the adaptive drive. I have both and the cost of replacing the tires on the 20's vs the 19's seals the deal for me on my net diesel order. The AD is worth the money in my book if you want a great handling X5. Good luck!

Thx. Added both. We really like the 20s and I'm willing to put up with the cost and implications of staggered (mostly makes rotation more painful). We will hate running around on 18s all winter long. Looking for a set of 18" take offs now.

2012 to 2013 X5d change

Is there any change on the spec of the 2013 X5d compared to the 2012 X5d?

Not that I'm aware of (would've love to have an 8 spd). Option prices went up a little bit...

bimmerbaba 11-19-2012 03:44 PM

Where did you get your invoice pricing info?

I've compared my config on Costco and TrueCar.com -- same MSRP but mysteriously different "Invoice" prices (apparently not all invoices are created equal).

arrivederci 11-19-2012 03:55 PM

I compared the Costco to http://www.bmwconfig.com/.

bimmerbaba 11-19-2012 03:58 PM

Grr... how did you find 2013 x5d on bmwconfig? I tried typing in "2013 X5" and it only shows the i's and M

How did the Costco #'s compare to bmwconfig?

You're not doing it wrong...there isn't a 2013 there yet. I picked a 2012 X5d and compared those invoice numbers to the 2013 costco sheet. It was close enough.

bimmerbaba 11-19-2012 08:21 PM

Super - thanks much for the help!

Dano18 11-20-2012 10:38 AM

We considered ordering a 2013 but weren't willing to wait.

We ordered a 2012 X5 35d to replace the one that the Atlantic Ocean decided to float away on us. Year end deals made it ALOT less painful. We ordered it almost exactly the same we just went for the Multi contour seats this time and aluminum trim interior. Dealer threw in Apps as well. Scheduled to finish production Nov 28. Guessing it will be by the dealer the following week....
PS: if anyone has delusions of driving one of these SAVs near salt water..... DON'T :cry::thumbdwn:

bimmerbaba 11-20-2012 06:06 PM

What kind of end of year specials are you seeing?

arrivederci 11-21-2012 06:50 AM

Eco credit ($4500 on 2012, $3000 on 2013) and $1500 holiday cash are the biggies.

I just saw a comercial and also now posted on BMW official website - $3,500 holiday credit. Nice

Yes, it is "up to $3500"...depends on the model you order. The X5d was $1500 for both 2012 and 2013.

Hit the 'production begins' stage on the bmw website either yesterday or today. Good stuff. Still looking for a set of snows, probably going to install an execuhitch myself, and thinking about a clear-bra solution along with some darker window tint in the back.

Anyone know how long it takes once it hits production begins stage? Trying to judge how much time I have to line the other stuff up.

henrycyao 11-29-2012 08:33 PM

It took slightly less than 2 weeks from my phone call production start to waiting for shipment. Then I was waiting the slow train to get it to Oxnard and later to Santa Barbara.

I dont know how the car will get to you...does it truck from Spartanburg direct to you in denver? Ask you salesman

Kudos on the hitch self-install too!:thumbup:

12/5 Update - production completed and awaiting carrier pickup. If I'm lucky, I'll take delivery by the end of next week.

bimmerbaba 12-05-2012 05:48 PM

Nice! That was just about a week from prod start to prod end?

Not bad - mines been in prod for about 4 days... Can't wait ;)

This car is for my wife but I'm still excited. Have rims (used 334s) for snows on the way along with new TPMS. Planning to have them powdercoated in satin black locally. Haven't settled on snow tires yet but there is plenty of time to pick tires. Bought some floor liners and (surprise for wife) blacked out kidney grills from getbmwparts. Looks like it'll be a good x-mas for our family. Planning to wait a little bit for the hitch since a) I don't have the time to install and b) I don't plan on towing my racecar until summer.

arrivederci 12-10-2012 05:05 PM

Timing update - according to my dealer, Waggoneers Trucking has it but it hasn't left South Carolina. I am hopeful that we could get it by the end of the week, but that looks unlikely to me at this point.
