My 2008 535i lease is up in late April so I just pulled the trigger on a 2012 X5 35i. Very strange process in this weird time between 2011 and 2012 model years...
Dealing with 2 different dealers for the exact same vehicle and was quoted different residuals and money factors? Price was close but stayed with my home town guys that sold me current car.
New 2012 Premium package now includes auto tailgate, auto dimming mirrors, lumbar support, heated front seats, park distance control, ambient lighting, BMW assist, cargo cover and Hi-Fi sound. Added to that NAV, premium sound, cold weather pkg, multi-contour seats, BMW apps, running boards and rubber floor mats. MSRP of $61,675.
Went for platinum bronze, black Dakota leather and light poplar.
36 months with 15,000 miles/year and a total of $2000 out the door costs with $816.68 per month.
Now the wait begains!
The secret to wealth: Don't get married, don't have kids and don't buy $4000 per night hookers...
