Deal or No Deal?

Hello everyone, new here and would like some opinions on this. I don't know anything about this model so I'm interested in more experienced and qualified input.
My wife wants an X3.
I am looking at a 2006 X3, Black Sapphire Metallic/Beige Leather 30k miles.
Auto. Trans., Premium Pkg., Bluetooth, Heated Seats and Privacy Glass. 0.9% for 60 months. $0 down would be at $473/month with GAP insurance and $465/month without. CPO BMW certified through 1/12. The purchase price is $24,900
Deal or No Deal?

Thanks for your replies.

It has Leather Auto.

CPO BMW certified through 1/12/12. The purchase price is $24,900 (including the certification/extended warranty)

Thanks for your replies.
Looks like a good deal to me. But I think you are being over charged considerably on the Gap insurance. Have them break it out as what it costs, not in terms of payment. Tell them you will not pay more than $299 for it. This is still $100 over their cost.

Does GAP insurance cost vary on location or region?

you could talk this over with your own insurance agent...might be less expensive or even included in your present insurance policy. upon reflection you might even determine you don't really need "gap" coverage.

i just bought our '06 at the end of lease and our deal is identical to what you described. i opted to pass on gap insurance, and our mo payment is $454

I doubt it. But I can't say for certain.

Checked out the car today, looks clean, drove fine. Sapphire Black Metallic/Sand Montana leather. 11/05 build, don't know if that's good or bad. Was originally a lease from this dealer, service records including inspection I and new front tires, they said rear bumper was re-painted due to scuffs possibly from bad parking......ooook. Couple other touched up little knicks, but no deal breakers. Liked the "panoramic" sunroof. Didn't like the old four spoke wheel. No alarm or aux. input on a premium package? Otherwise it would be a done deal.
What do you guys think? Is this fair, or could we get more for this price?

THANK YOU ALL

I think the price is good. The lack of an Aux port and Alarm should not be a show stopper. Both can be added easily - even DIY. See if you can get the dealer to swap the wheels. Otherwise if you're happy with the car go for it.

I don't think we're asking much with those 3 things. They set the price, and we'll pay it, but these things are important to us. If these guys don't, I'm sure plenty of dealers have the inventory to give us that.
