The $42k sounds reasonable on the 2011 X5D. 25k is still low mileage considering you can extend the warranty out to 100k still.

A new similarly equipped would be in the $60k+ range with discounts, etc...

The 335xi is running about $21-22k but you have some miles on this with no more chance to extend warranty much further.

So, for about $23k you get yourself into a larger X5D, 3 years younger and 50k miles lower.

Your note would be about $726/month for 36 months or $552/mo for 48 months.

Does that work for you?

Thanks for the response. I just wanted to ensure the price for the X5d and the trade in value were appropriate. Just doing a sanity check!

The X5d is not being sold by a BMW dealership. Any additional questions I should ask? Any concerns?

I'd ask to see its maintenance history as well as car proof in order to see if it's had any prior issues.

I can already see the Carfax. I can contact the local BMW dealer and inquire about service history. Thanks for all the replies!

i looked for months before getting our 2012 and honestly, $42k sounds really good based on my research. the only things that would personally be a deal breaker for me would be

a) the condition (i hate dings and rock chips) and low miles do not guarantee a clean vehicle

b) why is it not cpo'd

c) was it a March 2011 or later build so that it has the led corona's as opposed to the older yellow ones from the pre-LCI upgrade

A) Not sure of condition. Have not had eyes/hands on. Dealer is 90 minutes away. May view it tomorrow depending on other variables. In pics it looks great!

B) Not CPO'd b/c not at a BMW dealership. Can dealer have it CPO'd by local BMW dealer??

C) Production date is 27JUL2011

Also, I called the BMW dealership. No service issues and it is up to date on all service. Good news for me! Thanks for the information!

well, if bmw is like audi, then only a bmw dealer can cpo the car. they probably offer a 3rd party warranty, but it will not be "cpo" per say.

are you sure that isn't the in-service date? i would think that since new cars hit the showrooms in september, production for the previous model years usually stops around April or May at the latest. that car could have been built in Dec and sat at the dealer for months.
