What's a fair offer?

Hello all,

I am going to buy a X3 xDrive30e.

I plan to pay cash.

I plan to wait for the factory to build it to my configuration which may take a while.

Total Price MSRP for my build is: $55,900.

I'm not looking to squeeze every last nickle out of the dealer.

What's a fair offer price?

First a "cash" deal means nothing to a dealer. In fact you should check out the BMW finance offers. In February BMW offered a 60 mo finance deal at 3.99% and gave a $2,500 rebate off the MSRP.... I took it and paid off the balance 30 days later. I also got another $1,500 rebate because we had a Mini Cooper in the household. In addition to all of the above the dealer took another $6,000 off the MSRP just because that was his discount.......so all in all I got $10,000 off my (ordered) 2020 X3 which had an MSRP of $49,990.
Btw..... I also got another $5,500 for my 7 yr old Nissan Altima with 110M miles.

Hope that helps......bottom line..... even without any rebates I would guess that 10 to 13% off MSRP is reasonable at a minimum.

Good advice Rob! I did the same when we bought my wife's 19 X3 30i in 9/18.

That's a great help. Thanks guys.

So I bought and own a 2017 X3 currently and may trade it in. Not sure yet.

Would this be an appropriate offer?

MSRP: 55,900
Offer 10% off. 50,310
Loyalty Rebate Offer with financing: ($1,500) = $48,810

We're in Wisconsin. Might be a good idea to ask a few dealers down in IL as well...

MarkR37......
I've never made "an offer to buy" a car....but I have "negotiated" after the dealer told me what they wanted to sell the car for. I WOULD NEVER make an "offer" FIRST! However, I do always have a maximum number in mind before I walk into the dealership.

Check all of your local rebates, incentives, finance offers, interest rates, trade value (if you have a trade) etc etc BEFORE you go. (they change almost every 1st of each month)

Personally, from my experiences, 10% off the sticker's bottom line on a BMW would be the LEAST I would accept. Remember the most powerful "tactic" you have is to use your feet.....by that I mean, NEVER BE AFRAID TO GET UP AND WALK. You can always come back or they could always call you back or you can always go elsewhere.
