Finally!

Brand New from Shelley BMW in Buena Park Ca
There offering up to 15% MSRP on there website for 2012's and 2013's
Had 56 miles on the odometer wound up getting it for 12% off MSRP
i test drove the car 4 times over the last six months so ive basically put most of the miles on the car. LOL it was still there on wed
so i jump from getting a pre owned 12 Msport w 9k miles to a new one for 4 k more.
Axel Rodriguez was my CA.........Super nice guy, low key never pushed me one time in six months, never called. He just let me do my due diligence and then we came to terms right before the new year.
Passed on a another pristine space grey with 9k mile and all the same options plus technology package but no soft close...Which i absolutely could not live without! 2 little little kids need i say more. A sleeping baby versus seeing my MPH on the windshield is a no brainer for a new dad that prays for those kids to stay sleeping in the car!
Check it out.
ps the 3rd pic is of the car when i first test drove it 6 months ago on the first test drive. Pretty neet how its in my garage right now!

Strange, I close the driver's door relatively hard numerous time with my baby nephew in the back. Never once did he ever wake up. He slept like a rock.

That is one great looking SUV and mighty powerful one. Be sure to post your experience with the SUV.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I was wondering when you would
a) find the X5 of your dream
b) post a thread with pics.

Nice 12% off on a sweet ride.

Post a vid of your exhaust note!

No AD
I gave up in the 2011's because I could not find one with
Low enough miles for my liking
They all looked so used!
The trade off was getting w the 12 soft close doors, paddle shifters with I love and use everyday I drive.

Greg and I talked a bunch but I could justify a 13 even though I wanted the performance
Package when I knew there were great deals to be had on 12's.
It's like sure I could afford another 5k
And 10 and 15k
Where do I draw the line
I'm hey they have a completely loaded X5 w pp at Peter Pan BMW in
Cali for 92k. I could go and buy a small condo for that price.lol

Very happy thus far

id expect nothing less from you.

You pretend to kid, but not really... there will always be a faster car, a nicer car, a better car. Look into your soul to see what drives your needs.

Namaste

We bought our 2012 X5 35d from Axel in January, great guy to work with. All the other dealers were absolute tools to deal with.

Congrats Rob! It's a beauty, but I'm surprised it took you six months to pull the trigger.

Following Die Wolfe's example, here's my two day old X5M. Although, I bought it sight unseen.

Nice wheels bro

I was waiting till end of the year.
i become obsessed with getting below invoice
I hate getting beat by dealers so i beat them!

The exhaust notes on these cars are amazing at every rpm.
music to my ears!

Does this mean you are going to hang out now on the E70 forum ?

P.S. By the way you need to change from Guzzle Gas/ Conserve Gas to Guzzle Gas/ Guzzle More Gas
