Question When will 2010 X5's be available? Pricing? Also, is "confidential" pricing accurate?

I am a newbie and have been looking at the 2009 X5 48i. I am wondering if anyone knows when the 2010s will be available, what kinds of changes have been made, and the pricing. I found the "confidential" pricing sheet for the 2009, but unsure of the accuracy and how to use it. Any advice is appreciated. Also, the dealer in my area has "set" pricing. Any advice on how to deal with that?

Welcome, nanny.

If the confidential pricing is from the sticky in this forum, then yes, it is accurate. Be sure to add destination ($825), regional advertising ($300 in NC, not sure what it is in CO), and training ($180) to the invoice price. These fees are charged to dealers by BMW and aren't dealer add-ons. Other fees, well, that's between you and your dealer. Some states regulate the type and amount of extra fees that can be charged. I've never purchased a vehicle in CO and don't know about fees there.

EVERY price is "fixed." It's "fixed" when you sign the purchase agreement for a vehicle. How you get to that point will be different for every combination of customer - CA - vehicle - dealership. A reasonable place to begin would be the invoice price plus fees above plus some amount for dealer profit. An interview with the new BMWNA chief suggested the average dealer overall profit margin is around 2.5% but he did not indicate if that margin represented the profit in each car sale. Most posts on bimmerfest suggest invoice + mandatory fees + 1% is a reasonable deal. Again, though, that depends upon you, the specific vehicle, the CA, and the dealership.

Good luck!
