G30 (2017 - Current)
The next generation 5 Series, chassis code G30, arrives at dealers in February 2017. Looking like a scaled down 7 Series and riding on the CLAR platform, the new 5 Series will have a focus on lightweight and sporty performance. Engines options will come from BMW's new B family for the 530 and 540 and a turbocharged V8 for the M550i. Read more about the 2017 5 Series

I was told today that on a lease, you can't use both.

I do not think you can ever get more than one discount. They offered a discount if you went to a state university, but I could not get both. AARP was the better discount.

I don't know if he meant "you can't use either" or "you can't use both together/at the same time"

I'm thinking he meant the latter, not the former.

I'm buying, not leasing...so I know you can't use both at the same time. But you can certainly use one of them.

Something not right with the configurator website - you select the Premium package, and it adds keyless entry as a separate $650 option. If you deselect it, it deselects the premium package. Isn't keyless entry included in the Premium package $2300 price?

You cannot use both at one time. I am using the AARP for a discount of $2,500.

AARP is the corporate fleet discount. USAA could be the same but I'm not sure on that. So you also cannot combine AARP with the fleet incentive if you work for an eligible company, just an FYI.

I've been offered 9% off MSRP, plus my employer fleet discount of $2500 on a 2017.

Does anyone have any information on diferences between the 2017 and 2018 model year standard fearures and/or options?

My biggest disappointment is that the ride height on a 540i msport with DHP is not lowered as it is with the M550i. It also appears that you cannot get Integral Active Steering with DHP on the 540i, though Integral Active Steeriing is included with DHP in M550i.

I doubt there is going to be any major changes. I am 99% sure they won't change the issues you have with the suspension options. Those are intentional to make the M550i more desirable.

Thanks. What are your thoughts on the pricing?

I thought 9%, plus $2500, which came out to 12.1% total discount on my configuration was a good deal.... until I learned that the new model year will be available in mid-August. I'm told 6-8 weeks on a build order, since I'm not buying off the lot. So, that would put my delivery right around the start of June, 2 1/2 months before I could be getting a 2018.

Even if there are no changes to the car, I'm wondering if it might be a better value to wait a couple months and save the extra depreciation hit. If I ever go to sell the car, it will appear as if it's a year older (even though they did not come available in U.S. until February 2017).

First, you are assuming that, if you ordered a 2017 tomorrow, your dealer would have a buildable allocation. That may not be the case.

If you wait for a 2018, if the dealer has an allocation for an early build slot, you MIGHT see the car in August, but September is more likely. Will there be a price increase on the 2018's? How much? Will BMW make further cuts to free maintenance or other perks? What is Janet Yellen going to do with interest rates between now and then? What will BMW do with incentives? Will they be better or worse than they are today? Those are some big unknowns. Maybe you will save $$$ waiting, and maybe not. If you can find an open allocation, and order a 2017, you can quantify your pricing. Waiting for a 2018 is a crap shoot.

Thanks, I've decided to roll the dice on a 2018. Dealer offered me the same discounts (9% plus $2500) on a July build (MY 2018). It'll just be a matter of how much increase there is to the BMW base price and any packages/options.

I'm paying cash so not concerned about interest rates.

I'm betting that whatever I lose in BMW price increases will be more than offset by the depreciation saved by not having what would be perceived as a year old car come August/September. And then there's the savings from simply delaying the gratification (which is both a pro and con).

I'm also willing to wager that the build quality and options availability will, if anything, improve. And the chance of BMW changing the maintenance plan again so soon is exremley small.

The biggest downside is just the additional wait before getting the car.

The year of the car is a double edged sword when you are looking at buying next years car. A year from when you buy a 2018 this summer it's still a current year car with 15,000 miles in it (using "normal" miles). Two years from buying it you have a one year old car with 30,000 miles on it. I'm sure you could play with a site like kbb.com to figure out which will have higher resale value, but I would guess it's close to a wash.

Not sure I follow. I also don't drive "normal miles". I put 6,000-7,000 miles on my car every year. So two years from this summer, I'll have a one year old car with 12,000 -14,000 miles on it. Does that change your equation?

Unless I am on vacation, I drive to the airport every Sunday evening and return home on Thursday evening. I work from home on Friday and typically don't leave the house that day. That leaves whatever additional driving I do on Saturday and Sunday, or when on staycation/holidays. That is, when we aren't in my wife's car.)

How do I order a 2018 530i?

I understand that the 2018 530i starts production in July 2017. How do I order a 2018 530i for ED in August/September, as the 2018 buying guides and pricing are not out yet? Don't they make them available 2 months before production start ---- like now? Otherwise, how can you order a 2018 530i for European Delivery?

I ordered my 2013 in late May 2012 for ED on September 5th. I don't remember if the factory switched over in June or July, but either way, the guides should be released in the next four weeks or so.

It doesn't look like a diesel is going to be offered in the states for the G30. Does anyone have information to the contrary?

Specific question on the M550i X that I plan on ordering. I know this car is already MY 2018. When do they release the next build or new ordering guide coming out? Mainly I wanted some features like the 668M wheels, possibly new colors, and long shot all digital dash that are not available in current build. Rookie question, thanks for your insights!

Major updates for the M550i coming in July production! BMW is releasing Individual paints, upholsteries, interior trims, and options as of July 2017 production. Also in July you'll be able to order 19" M Double-spoke wheels - style 664M w/all-season run-flat tires (29W) and 20" M Double-spoke wheels - style 668M w/Michelin Pilot Super Sport non Run-flat tires (22E). And for anyone wanting the full digital display cluster, the 12.3" Dynamic Digital Instrument Cluster (6WB) also starts in July 2017 production.

It is for M550i only as of right now. It is possible BMW will include this when the 530i and 540i 2018 info is released.

This info came right out of the updated MY 2018 M550i pricing guide.
