Newbie here

Hi Jon and everyone. I was just introduced to this website by a friend and am fascinated by the openness of the discussions. Have had some difficulty dealing with the dealerships who refuse to move off MSRP for a lease on a X5 35, and worse, they keep pushing me to only talk about Premium, even though I don't want most of those features.. I currently own a 5 series, but wife wants an SUV so looking to get an X5 - Jon, could you suggest a bimmerfest member around New York City who could help with the lease? Can't deal with the dealerships and sleazy car salesmen anymore

Thanks in advance!

Val

Val,what you need to do unfortunately is to contact 4-5 BMW dealers in your area. This may be done by phone. Do this after you know exactly what you want: all options, how long of a lease and how many miles/year. Exact color isn't necessarily needed, but if you know you want an exterior metallic color take the up charge cost into account. Additionally, find out what the approximate dealer charges for their "extras" are: DMV, paperwork, etc. You also need to go to www.edmunds.com or another website like it so you know what "invoice" charges for your vehicle will be. Lastly, with a lease you need to now what the down payment costs are- another sleazy way they can manipulate you. Get all cost figures from the sales guy from each dealer in writing- email is easiest. You're now armed with the information you need to get the best lease deal.

Decide which dealer you want to do business with. Hopefully, you know some people who've done business with the dealer. Personal referrals are best. You may also find information on the web on sites such as Yelp. I would pick the dealer that's most convenient for you- close to your home or work. You can buy your car from any dealer, but if you get the vehicle serviced by the same dealer they'll give you loaners. The dealer you want to business with should meet your lowest price.

Good luck!

AmEx also has a no haggle auto program. If you're a card holder, you can go to the following site, https://amexnetwork.truecar.com/main.html

Fill out the info and get a price. In my case, there wasn't a participating dealership close to me, so I forwarded the email to several dealerships that were. I asked if they would be willing to match the offer, and found one that would. I got my X5 for invoice minus the current incentives.

Hello Jon,

friend of mine is looking to lease an X5 and needs lowest possible payment. She is currently leasing a 2010 X5 3.0 which is almost up. Can you PM me with info needed to work out some numbers?

Thanks.

Sweet Ride you have there. Mind if I ask what it set you back?

I will assume you mean the X5 in my signature...Its is an XDrive50i with the M Sport option. The sticker was just under 79K but it has pretty much every option except for the comfort seats, soft close doors, rear heated seats and third row seating. Some of those options were stand alone types that are now bunched in with others like the soft close doors is now a part of the Technology pkg...not part of that pkg in 2012. My doberman prefers the back without seats and I live in SoCal...no need for the cold weather pkg, I also have the wider tire and wheel pkg on the truck so it has some SERIOUS tires on it. 315's on the rears!

If you are considering it, AVOID the active steering, the X5 feels far more planted and stable without it. Get the adaptive drive option though.

I found Habberstad in New York (Huntington) to be beyond my expectations both price and delivery. Thanks to Vito

Hope this helps,

Is there a version of the config site that is Apple compliant?

how about the deal on 2013 or 2014 750 LI x drive

Hi Jon!
Do you offer any very good deals on 2013 or 2014 750LI xdrive. I'm a Colorado resident, but I can fly in or drive to your dealership if the deal so attractive.
Please advise!
Roman
