Under 10K I'd look at a lot of small SUVs, including CR-V, RAV4, though both are everywhere in So Cal. So would probably end up with Forester or CX 5.

So if you plan ahead, order a BMW say 2-3 weeks before a scheduled event which you attend, you can't use the $1000 on that car you ordered before the event? Sounds as if that pretty much rules out...
