Visit and calculate the "invoice" price of your vehicle with options. That's where you should start the negotiating. That's not the true cost of the car for the dealer. Aim for 5%-8% below "invoice."
Invoice for X3 is about 7% off MSRP. You said 5% to 8% below invoice, that then is 12~15% off MSRP. That's not possible without BMW incentive or military discount.
