This may or may not be important to you but a number of folks on this forum have switched away from run flats and have purchased the spare. Finally, BMW doesn't have a good track record on new models. Just a couple of thoughts. BTW I did buy and X5 in December and concerns about the new X5 were part of the reason.
I would think right now you should be able to negotiate 8-10% regardless of whether or not its spring. Dealer stock is usually pretty low on X5's. Just order one up and use invoice +500-1000 as your guide.

I wouldn't buy a first year run of any model from BMW or any other manufacture for that matter. Too many potential bugs
