Sage advice right here. If you are willing to get a demo car, be sure it's far below invoice... far, far below invoice.

I would have laughed in their face @ $800 under invoice for a demo.

You'd be surprised. I totaled my 1 year old X3 with an MSRP over $59k and had to fight tooth and nail to get $51k for it.

Not sure why you would want to do that... if you have a total loss, you cannot recoup that money.

Looking at potentially picking up a low mileage 2011 X5 35i (late October build).

Was the E70 available in M-Sport and diesel?

Occasionally I see a 50i with different rims and different body moldings (bumper, sides, etc). Was this trim available only on a 50i and X5M for the E70? Or was M-Sport an option like it is today...

X5 sDrive 35i "partial" dynamic handling?

From the 2015 ordering guide, I see it is not possible to order 2VP - Dynamic Performance Control + Active Roll Stabilization on an sDrive 35i in any trim.

But you do get the option of 2VF -...

That's a no brainer. Drive an hour. I drove 3.5 hours to pick mine up because I got such a great deal from a bimmerfest sponsor.

There's nothing wrong with the wagon. It's a cool car. But the X3 has a larger interior (albeit not by an enormous margin) and, more noticeably, larger headroom.

You cannot have bluetooth audio streaming without 6NH, which is why it is troubling. This is a feature on a lot of other cars that come with "tech packages"

2014 X3 iDrive controller

Does the 2014 X3 with technology package have the "swipeable" iDrive controller, such as the one in the 2014 3-series? Couldn't recall if this was added or not.
