2011 X5-D deals

What kind of deals (how much over invoice) are folks getting on 2011 x5 D. I want to use this as a starting point before the holiday and loyalty credit.

I'm looking at the same thing and best I have been able to get is $63525 on a MRSP of $70025 and that includes the $3500 eco credit. This is about $4k over invoice. I'm sure the dealer can go lower though. Plus they marked up the MF on the lease offer which annoys me even more...

$500 over invoice including MACO, Svc fee, doc fee.

NOT including ECO rebate, Holiday cash, tax credit, sales tax

500 over "dealer cost" is a great deal....up to 1500 over on the upper end.

patrikr- $4000 over invoice I think means they are making MORE than the standard profit BMW builds into MSRP. That is an amazingly bad deal.

And so we all know what 'dealer cost' is: Inovice plus delivery plus MACO plus training minus ECO credit minus holiday cash.

Sales tax and tax credits are not part of the equation

I ordered on 11/2 (from a dealership an hour away) for $1000 over invoice less holiday cash of $2500 and eco credit $3500. MSRP = $61,425, final sale price $52,125. No markup on MF and no other dealer fees.

The other dealers I spoke with in my area wouldn't come anywhere close.

What is this loyalty credit? Is it real or just a myth?

What dealer did you go to? I am in the Denver area and I am looking for a similar deal?

An update on my situation. Using the information from this forum + info from a local lease broker I renegotiated the price to invoice + $1000 minus the $3500 eco credit and the $2500 holiday incentive. MSRP $70025, sale price $60870. No markup on MF (which they tried initially). The only unnecessary dealer fee was a $55 documentation fee but I can live with that. All in all I'm happy with my deal. Will post pics tomorrow but so far love the car. Ride is a bit stiff and the engine somewhat noisy but you can't argue with 25 mpg on the drive home

I am going to test drive x5d this weekend. Is the loud engine noise bothersome with windows closed?

Not really no. It doesn't sound as smooth as the gasoline engines but it's not bothersome. The only annoying thing is that when you have the engine running and exit the car it does sound like a truck

Not sure if this will get better over time, I only have 100 miles on the car.

looking for dealer

I'm in KC and looking for 35d for approximately invoice + $1000 (minus $3500 & $2500 of course). Dealer here not willing to go that low and not really doing much on my 2006 X5 trade either. Any dealers, and particular salespeople to recommend working with? Possibiliities: Chicago, St. Louis, Denver, are all a days driving distance.

Can't wait for my 35d! Also, what's the best way to actually know invoice price, just have the dealer show you?

For those KC folks I did get Baron to do $1000 over invoice on the 35d and they also came up on my trade-in.

I could not get them to waive the $279 administrative/processing fee and invoice includes the $405 MACO and $200 training/service fee. They matched the best trade-in offer from two other BMW dealers. I finally got this deal after telling them a dealership in Texas was willing to do the same. Anyone think I should push for more or is that close enough to as good as it gets? I'd probably go out of state to save another $500+ but think I'm reasonably happy with this deal since it's 4 miles from my house.

As a side note...I spent 3 hours in the KC dealership one day test driving and negotiating. A day later I sent the salesperson an email about the other out of state deal and it suddenly dropped their price $3K.

After this I will never make a car deal at the dealership. Test drive only. My experience tells me car deals are best done over the phone or email and they take a fraction of the time.

No maco fee. Will sell any car @ inv + scv fee and $499 doc fee.
effectively $500 over inv.

saving the MACO fee makes it like $100 over inv; compared to your local deal.

Talk to Karen

I got it for 300 over the invoice (if there is any Maco fees then it was not paid by me) in NJ.

So "Published Invoice" minus $3500 eco minus $2500 holiday cash, plus $300?

If a cash price, very good deal.

The $2,500 holiday credit is from BMW finance, so you need to finance at least part of the X5 to get it (ie: technically not a cash deal).

The MACO, if it exists in your area, is included IN the invoice price. If there was a MACO fee, and you paid invoice plus $300, then you paid the MACO. Same for the $200 training fee and $875 delivery fee.

That's a remarkable deal. Be careful with the hidden charge though.

I got $1000 over invoice with no document fee, which I am pretty happy with it.

Any folks in the suburban Philadelphia area been able to get decent deals from our local dealerships?

Best I can find is $1,500 over invoice (less all the various credits). Willing to drive several 100 miles to a PA, NJ, NY, MD dealership for the right price, but am running against the delivery schedule, and need to get something out of inventory before 12/31/10.

I've also tried to get a decent deal through the American Express Auto Purchasing Program, and while they appear to be great deals on paper, cannot get the dealership that's part of that program to respond to the request!

If you've had a great experience, I'd also welcome the name of your Sales Associate.

Thanks.

I had good experience and also very good price (300 over the invoice) for my X5 35D at Open Road BMW in Edison NJ (which is not far from you). The CA was Chad King and his Manager is Stephen (I think). Check them out and see what they offer and then you can ask for a deal close to mine.

All the best.

Some of you kept talking about the $1800 tax credit, sorry what is it?

I know currently there are $3500 ECo credit and $2500 Holiday credit (thru BMW finanace), is the $1800 tax credit another credit?

There is a Federal Tax Credit through 12/31/10 for the purchase of diesel vehicles. For the BMW X5 3.5d, it still is $1,800 to be applied against your 2010 income.

Hope that helps!
