About the 2015 BMW X3 LCI
The BMW X3 Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) refreshes the design and engine offerings of the already successful F25 X3. A new offer of BMW Advanced Diesel power in the X3 xDrive28d will enhance efficiency while further reducing emissions. There will also be the first-time offer of the rear-wheel drive BMW X3 sDrive28i for the US market, providing a great consumer entry point into the X3 family. The exterior and interior design of the new BMW X3 receive stylistic revisions that add further depth to the vehicle's practicality, while updates to other details promise to impress the X3 customer. The new BMW X3 will go on sale in spring 2014 as a 2015 model. Prices in the US will tart at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $39,325 for the X3 sDrive28i (new offer: rearwheel drive). The X3 xDrive28i (with BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive) will have an MSRP of $40,725, while the top-of-the-line X3 xDrive35i will have an MSRP of $45,825. The all-new X3 xDrive28d with BMW Advanced Diesel technology will start at $42,825. All prices include $925 Destination & Handling fee.

I hope that I'm not misreading the ordering guide. It looks like the Xline adds nothing but some shiny bits. Please tell me that a non M-Sport 28i can be ordered WITH the sport steering wheel. Please!

In the pricing guide, feature 255 is a Sport Steering Wheel. It appears to be a standard option on all X3's. Given that virtually all X3's will cost more than $40K and they are promoted as a sporting vehicle, it's only reasonable to make a decent steering wheel standard. Unlike the base 2014 X3 which had a garbage steering wheel that would be appropriate in the cheapest Hyundai.

And then we have the sport seats... Given that BMW is too brain dead to figure out that some customers might want a good seat without the M-Sport package (which is hideous), I'm going to wait for the 2015 Audi to hit the streets before making my final choice. I like the X3 better than than current Q5, but the BMW company is starting to leave a bad taste in my mouth.

Looking at the X-Line which includes 19" rims plus some trim pieces for $1500 vs. the M-sport which adds sport seats, performance control, sport auto, 19" rims, trim, aero kit and other pieces for $2,700. Either the M-sport is the "bargain" line or X-line is simply overpriced based on the lack of content. What am I missing?

Hope this helps you guys also, this is my understanding and some doubts on 2015 models. Correct me if I am wrong please-

1. Price Increase: On 2014 models, the top view camera use to be 350.00 additional (provided you already have selected driver assistance package). Now its been increased to $750.0 (?)
2. Price Decrease: Roof rail use to be 250.00 extra, now it is showing standard on all models (?)
3. Price Decrease: Wood trim use to be 500.00 extra, in 2015 Burl Walnut Wood Trim w/ chrome accent is showing standard (?)
4. Doubt: It doesn't say, how much is 18" style 605 whee extra for 28i models.
5. Sad that to get blind spot monitor you have to buy driver's assistance (950.00) and driver's assistance plus package (1900.00). No other options (?)

Thanks.

That's still a $1200 premium compared to X-Line. Maybe it's worth it for the sports seats, but that's offset considerably by the fact that while most of us really like the X-Line exterior look, we really dislike the redesigned MSport. Performance Control is nice, but that also comes in the Dynamic Handling package, which I would certainly get. The 19" wheels are a mixed blessing in both cases—they look good, but ride harder and tires cost more.

Noticed under sDrive it's say all wheel drive.

Code 203 All Wheel Drive is listed on both regarding the S drive

Hi Tim, is there any latest version of the pricing guide on 2015 X3 that you may be able to share? Thanks.
plegard commented:
March 8, 2014, 10:44 am

Is it the "no-line" or the "x-line"?

Really like the look of the new X3 that is in those photos (the white X3) and want to make sure that I order the proper line to make sure it looks like that.

Does anyone have links to the front, side and rear photos for all 3 lines of the LCI X3? That would be very helpful. Have only seen the x-line and m-sport together.

Thanks in advance.
saml commented:
March 8, 2014, 10:50 am

What you see at this link by default (with black kidney grills) is the standard I think..Once you select 2nd tab with xLine and Msport the picture changes to xLine.

plegard commented:
March 8, 2014, 10:53 am

Was opening that link on an iPad and the full visualizer never came up. Tried it a laptop and now I can see that it is the x-line with the silver kidney grills.

Thanks very much for the help. really appreciate it.

The 2014 pricing guide (which is also posted on the main X3 page here) went through quite a few version changes/corrections. 2015 guide shows things like roof rail, wood trim as standard now, so was just curious (unless it really is standard now).

Lightening package has 2 things, 1. The xenon lights i.e. white lights see v/s yellow. 2. Adpative lights (if you go to configure current 2014 X3, you will see what it is).

May I know how are you able to build and pre-order 2015 model? It isnt updated on the website yet and I dont think dealers are taking orders yet.
FrozenGas commented:
March 11, 2014, 12:24 am

Dealers already started to taking pre-order for April production. I think you misunderstood me...what I mean is the Lights Package (not the Lighting Package which include LED headlights for the 2015s)...the Lights Packages are suppose to look like an Enhanced ambience lighting where more interior lights are added....however, I just want to see others who have pre-ordered and ask about dealers, whether 2015 X3 Interior Lights Package will be designed as the new X5 interior lighting system where you see interior lights under trim and footwell.........

Can anyone who has pre-ordered 2015 X3, also verify whether Deep Sea Blue exterior is being postponed to May production? Thanks!
JDB001 commented:
March 11, 2014, 12:48 am

I downloaded copies of the pricing and configuration sheets a couple weeks ago. Reviewing them intently and noticed they do not seem complete.

E.G., looking at the ZMM (M Sport) package - what is actually included in the "337 M Sport Pack"?

Is it the items after "337" on the list - or literally just 2TB, 2TE, 2V1, 2VG, 337, 3D7, 3MC, 481, 4FW, 710, 715, 760, 775, and 840?

What is in the "715 Aerodynamic Kit"?

Are these items (and other details) explained in another document somewhere?

Why are USB and Bluetooth connectivity not a standard peripheral included?

When is it expected that BMW will put the details for the 2015 X3 on the website including the diesel model? Turn on the "build it yourself" tab
JDB001 commented:
March 11, 2014, 12:59 am

Also - will the Satellite Radio only be available in the Premium Package?

Also - the Panoramic Moonroof "402" - can it be ordered separate?

Also - AWD is listed under sDrive28i as standard - STD. This cannot be correct. I makes me wonder what else is wrong on the order and pricelist documents?

Yes they are both standard now.

March 16, 2014, 8:39 pm

Just ordered an x28d, so I'll try to answer some of the questions above.

Didn't order the top-down camera (not an option I'd care about at pretty much any price), so I'm not sure on the price increase there.

Roof rails, the M steering wheel, and wood/chrome trim are all standard now (you net more value in options than the price increase in the base model actually, which is nice).

In terms of wheels, I'm not sure you even have options on the wheels at this point based on my next comment...

Colors and interior trims and combinations thereof are very limited right now. Blue is definitely unavailable for now; it sounded like someone thought it would be available in May but my dealer didn't mention this. I wanted blue/saddle and after running through lots of combinations that just don't exist yet I ended up with alpine white/saddle as a result.

Not sure about the blind spot monitor. Like the top-down camera, I didn't really care about this.

My dealer said they expected to get the car in late April, but no hard and fast dates yet. I'd be curious if anyone has gotten more precision.

Hi, Thank you for updating us. Few doubts -

1. How were you able to see all the options and configure it? The bmwusa site is not updated yet. I guess the dealer had special system where you can see it before the general public. But please share some details.

2. What kind of deal did you get? Does BMW have any option and drive credit for 2015 X3?

3. Do you know what color is the standard kidney grill (without xLine package)? The picture on bmw.com/X3 by default shows black, so just want to know if you were able to check that.

Thanks again.

1. You can't build one online yet, but basically all you need to know is there is a $600 increase in base price and the diesel is $1500 on top of that; most everything else you want is priced the same as 2014. I actually went in about two weeks ago looking at 2014 X3s and the dealer let me know that he thought he'd be able to order me a 2015 instead.

If you look at the start of the thread all the pricing in those sheets are what dealers have, so they are able to build one for you and place a preorder with Spartanburg, albeit with limited options.

2. There are basically no incentives yet for 2015 - my dealer literally pulled up his list of incentives to prove it to me. What I saw was that all deals are on 2014 X3s as they're looking to clear house on those. I think you could get $3000 off MSRP easily with an X3 right now (their incentive is $2000, but Truecar will do better for you), but between new options being added as standard, all the other improvements, and the better resale (should I not run this thing into the ground) on the '15 vs. the '14, I went with '15. I got ~$750 off after quite a bit of shopping and working with the dealer. I would guess most places will not give you much more than this at this point. If you do get more of a deal, let me know.

3. No clue on standard grille. I wasn't overly concerned about exterior looks to be honest.

Nice work! Maybe I just suck at negotiating, or maybe it's a supply/demand thing in the northeast, or maybe both.

What was the story on your delivery date? I was told late April but not much more. Are you able to track your order yet? I haven't been able to.

I have not been given a production number yet. Apparently the dealer has not gotten an allocation yet. I guess mine is a low volume dealer. Maybe this attributes to a good price. From a consumer standpoint the allocation thing is very frustrating.

It is difficult to believe that they would just throw in wood trim and rails for the same base price. And on 35i the pricing guide shows an increase of $200 which kind of makes sense considering that that the wood trim has been standard on that one.

Good News to new Canadian BMW X3 orders: All colors and/or other combination with M performance are ready for production in May 2014 for delivery end of May to early June 2014...you may need to get in touch with your Sales Managers regarding an immediate production allocation depending on your location and/or if your dealer is a high volume dealer. Wait is almost over. Got the confirmation Email from BMW Canada Corporate.

The "ZMA" package is shown in the options package listing, but it is not listed in the price guide. What happened? Is it a mistake?

The ZMA selection (and items included) looks like it could be a nice package - especially if priced right.

Looking through all options carefully to configure with desired extras at the best price. Obviously the packages are inflated to add to dealer bottom line, so we need to pick for a better result.

Is ZMA available in the USA? What is the cost?

I am still looking for a definitive listing of what the "default" 2015 X3 looks like, what the "X-Line" looks like, and what the "M-Sport" looks like. When I view the pictures I see no figure notes or explanation as to which version is being shown. They all tend to run together. The differences between 2014 and 2015 are evident - no problem there.

Did I miss something? Was I not paying attention?

It goes into production in April so they should hit dealerships shortly there after as they're made in South Carolina. You should be able to get a production slot now.

I had a X1 sDrive as a loaner and was getting 33 in mix driving, I would assume that the X3 would get something close to this in sDrive form. But I can tell you that the N20 engine has been beating the EPA figures, I can get solid 38 on the highway in my F30 doing 75.

The Tech package really gives you head up display, if you get the Navi system you will be able to use your smart phone for other features, like Bluetooth connectivity.

When I was car shopping I wasn't looking at NAV because " I use my phone for Nav..."

I'm soooo glad I decided to get Nav. You'll find it much easier to use than your phone as far as ease of looking ( screen is big and in good sight as apposed to looking at small screen on your and taking your eyes off your POV )

If you don't want HUD save the grand and just get Nav, you get little extras with Nav as well

Was there any trade in involved?

I wonder when I see posts like this whether, when I go to buy, whether the situations are comparable. I worry that, if there is a trade involved, that since there are 2 transactions, it might appear that there is a better deal on the new car, but it was paid for by a poorer deal on the trade in.

I've already sold my second vehicle, so my transaction is to order the vehicle configured how I want it.

What what's the percentage off of the total MSRP (with options) that got you the $2,995..?

Also....what does the 'enhanced Bluetooth' get you? For the life of me, I can't figure out what this encompasses.

That was about 6% off of MSRP. Honestly I am not sure what the enhanced option entails. I just made the decision that I wanted all of the technology that I could get from that aspect and was willing to pay the extra 500 and take a chance. I did not want to not get it and regret it later.

Enhanced Bluetooth allows you to stream audio through your radio, also allows you to have your phone not in the cradle to use it as hands free.

This begs the question what the hell enhanced USB and Bluetooth actually is.

I just had this exact conversation today with my SA. Ordering X3 35i M Sport fairly loaded. Bluetooth audio (A2DP) streaming is standard. The enhanced USB and Bluetooth Plus Smartphone Integration Option (6NS) allows you to access some apps from your phone on your iDrive such as Facebook and Twitter, Mog, Pandora, etc. The phone has to be connected to the USB for this to work. Not sure what enhanced bluetooth portion of the title means. Perhaps it helps with the office functions such as text messages, etc. I didn't ask this extra question, but bluetooth audio streaming is standard.

As someone above said, I ordered it because i didn't want to miss out on a future potential capability. I do use the enhanced USB functionality on trips when I want to charge my phone and use the Pandora/Mog app while driving and don't need to check emails, etc.

According to this, invoice price on the 35i is $41,490:

If one could buy a 2015 model at invoice price (plus any options at invoice price), would that be considered an OK deal, or are people getting them below invoice price?

The EPA has not rated the Xdrive 28d yet, once that happens they will be shipped. I'm also wondering what this is going to be rated at, I'm hoping for it to be in the high 30's, would love to see it in the low 40s..

It's rated: 27/34/30 combined. You're right though; it seems like that was the holdup, as my dealer says the 28d is supposed to come in today.

34 on the highway isn't all that impressive! I was hoping for higher MPG... However, once that engine loosens up some, I can see it getting high 30's on the highway.

Well, it's 25% less gas (and fill-ups), which, considering that diesel prices and gas prices are roughly identical where I am, sounds pretty good to me. However, I am also surprised it didn't come to 30/36ish, which would have been roughly the same % improvement from the 328i to the 328d. I'm wondering if they tweaked the transmission to get better performance and sacrificed some fuel economy in the process (in particular the 0-60 numbers on the engine look markedly better than they did when this same engine was in Europe - 7.8 vs. 8.5ish).

Here in Phoenix, the price difference is roughly 10 cent a gallon. Diesel being more who know the reason, and why isn't it offered as a sDrive??

Some additional leg work may be required, but I'm sorry to tell you that it's not a good deal.

I recommend the following: contact the internet sales guy at 3 other local BMW dealerships. This may done over the phone and through emails. You live in a part of the country where there are many competitors and all of them would be special ordering your car from Spartanburg, SC. After you get quotes from the other dealers bring it back to the one you want to do business with and they'll be forced to match the lowest quote.

You could save another $1500 or so.

Feel free to PM me.

Do the following to figure out invoice price: take the MSRP of the base price and multiply by .92. Then add up the MSRP's of all the added options and multiply by .91. Add these up along with MACO and Training; in NJ it's $380 and $180 respectively. Lastly add in the destination charge. Now you have the INVOICE price and you can work up from that. Much better than working down from MSRP. Every dealer has DMV fees and maybe some other small nonsense fees- keep a separate total for this.

$500 over invoice is about what you should pay.

No, base is multiplied by .92 and options by .91.

To be even more specific, each individual option needs to be rounded up or down to the closest $5.
kevink4 commented:
April 30, 2014, 9:22 pm



Regardless, dividing by .91 or .92 would have made invoice higher than MSRP.

Horrible deal, and some dealers might be able to get the Comfort access added if you order one from the factory for a price. BTW, the cost of the premium package is roughly $10 a month and the resale is better too.

You should be able to get about $3500 off MSRP... Just need to know how to play the game.

Long time lurker first time posting,
Finally bought my first BMW (well ordered)

2015 X3 sDrive28i
Mineral Silver (Thinking about changing it to red)
Oyster Nevada
xLine
Driver Assistance Package
Technology Package
HK Surround Sound

MSRP 47800
Invoice comes out to be 44565 including training and MACO,
I got it for 44800, which is 235 above invoice, exactly 3k below MSRP

I think I got a pretty decent deal. It took me only 1 day to get that price, I dont' think I can really get any better (I mean maybe i'll get someone to go 100 above invoice on a 2015? probably not...)

But since I kinda want the car before end of June and this is a 21st week slot I just went for it.

Really excited!

I've never negotiated for a brand new car before… how do you manage to get $500 over invoice for a 2015? The dealer near me is stuck firmly to about $2500 over invoice for the 2014s still on their lot, even though they also have '15's. I would expect '14's to be below invoice by now, wouldn't you?
I've found an X3 28i Deep Sea Blue, with Premium and Driver Assist Packages, and Nav and Cold Weather, which is pretty much exactly what I want. I figure invoice should be about $44.7k, and they are going no lower than $46.9k. This was with the internet salesman today.

I've found an X3 28i Deep Sea Blue, with Premium and Driver Assist Packages, and Nav and Cold Weather, which is pretty much exactly what I want. I figure invoice should be about $44.7k, and they are going no lower than $46.9k. This was with the internet salesman today.
Thanks!
Hmm not sure where exactly you are but using east tennesse as a basic point

the car you want assume it's a sDrive.
base msrp 38400
metalic finish 550
leather 1450
cold weather 950
driver assist 950
premium 3200
nav 2150

total msrp 48575

invoice including training and MACO for your area should be 45270 according to truecar

I am not sure how many bmw dealers are at your area. For me I simply emailed all of them around 50 miles of me (7 of them) and wait for them to compete with each other. It took me less than 1 day to get a dealer to agree to sell at 250$ above invoice.

I recommend the following: contact the internet sales guy at 3 other local BMW dealerships. This may done over the phone and through emails. You live in a part of the country where there are many competitors and all of them would be special ordering your car from Spartanburg, SC. After you get quotes from the other dealers bring it back to the one you want to do business with and they'll be forced to match the lowest quote.

You could save another $1500 or so.

Feel free to PM me.

Do the following to figure out invoice price: take the MSRP of the base price and multiply by .92. Then add up the MSRP's of all the added options and multiply by .91. Add these up along with MACO and Training; in NJ it's $380 and $180 respectively. Lastly add in the destination charge. Now you have the INVOICE price and you can work up from that. Much better than working down from MSRP. Every dealer has DMV fees and maybe some other small nonsense fees- keep a separate total for this.

$500 over invoice is about what you should pay.



Thanks for your input. I have involved a couple of dealers in this fashion, and have two of the three helping me out. The first price I got back was about $2K 'High' - (and $2K below MSRP)...but I am stopping in tomorrow to show my interest....and confirm some color choices.

Hopefully I am successful.

Anybody have any pictures of how the mocha with orange contrast looks in the X3 15? Desperately trying to find a picture before I drive an hour to look at one!

So when is BMW going to update the X3 web site and allow us to build a X3 with the M Sport package?

BMW UK website configurator has the M Sport package up already. They pretty much have everything available to build. Obviously their packages are a bit different than North American packages but you do get to see what the M package build looks like.

Thanks for the info about the UK site. Apparently Deep Sea Blue is now available to order, but is still now showing up on the USA site. At least you can see it on the UK site.

Thanks for the tip!
The Knoxville dealership is now offering $5k off MSRP on all 2014s on the lot. A single email exchange has gotten another $1000 off, which puts the price of one originally listed at ~$49,500 down to $43,500. Any thoughts on how much less to offer? Negotiations haven't even really started yet. Apparently they are really ready to get rid of their 2014s.

What's interesting or sad (depending on how you look at it) but if you go to cars.com web page you can build a 2015 X3 with all packages and get invoice price, but NA web site doesn't show everything...

How I look at this is, if you are happy with 43K, then go for it. The dealers will only go down so low, plus trying to squeez out an extra $500 or so you might lose the x3 you want...

Hey, I'm new to the thread and didn't know there was a specific thread for leasing. If you could provide a link that would be great.

Since you posted this same question in multi threads and forums I would have assumed you looked around... Try here

Hi All,

Can anyone answer the deference between AG Code "WX71" and "WX73" on the new 2015 X3 XDrive 35i with the M-Sport package?

It would appear that the bmwusa configuration for the X3 is working now. I was actually able to configure the X3 today.

Noticed that the M-Sport is missing, though. Intentional? Still only the limited color options they have shown since the 2015 went up. No color option I want.

Then the BMW web site is not working, its been like this for over a month, very frustrating when you want to build a X3 and it's missing a lot of options.

Compared to where it was before, where things like navi and some other options couldn't be selected, it is much improved.

But if some options are still not available to be ordered, like some colors, a note would be better. Preferably with an expected availability date.

Since the 2015 hit the web page I have been able to select Nav for the X3, but options and colors are still missing. Would be nice to be able to select M Sport or Sport, and other than 5 colors... Going on 2 months since the new X3 was introduced and BMW hasn't gotten the web site right...

As of today when I checked the website is showing all selections including M-Sport and X-Line - with additional colors, options and packages - but not the ZMA package option (Mobile Assistance Package).

According to the BMW ordering guide, the Mobile Assistance Package is not an option for end customers to order. Only dealers, for roadside assistance fleet.

FYI: Had a my 2015 X3 28 Diesel Delivered - Took it for a short road trip from Hamilton Ontario Canada to New York City (430 Miles/700 KM trip) full tank on leaving, only 1 stopover for food, yield an AMAZING - 5.9 L/100KM OR 39.8 MPG, Comfort Mode, I was gentle on the gas pedal (still during breaking in period), highway range 120-130 km/h or 80 Miles/Hr (never heavy acceleration), on arrival, tank still has about 35% fuel left...thought might be helpful to share this with some of you

This is great news, thanks for posting you might want to start a thread about X28d MPG

My first fillup wasn't nearly as good on my 28d. Bought the X3 in Dallas. Drove home mostly highway miles. The next day filled up. 228 miles, 10.4 gallons. The car told me 29 mpg, but the calculation was under 22. It had better be getting better.
