Transition to 2018 MY ...

Been planning for about a year to try to do a ED so I booked a flight to Munich and my dates are pretty much set, really only have one day to take delivery.

I contacted some sales advisors on the recommendation of several Bimmerfest folks back in January but they said it was too early for a late August delivery.

They were saying they can't set up a date more than 90 days out. So now it's about 90 days out and the car I've been targeting, X1 sDrive28i, is probably going to flip to the 2018 MY by the time I'm in Munich.

Has anyone had any luck with getting good ED prices at the beginning of a MY?

Any idea what would be a good target price relative to MSRP or ED price (as officially posted on the bmwusa site) for a car in the first month or two of a MY?

Over at Edmunds, their moderators suggest targeting 7% off MSRP for 2017 X1 leases, as well as base MF, avoiding down payments but rolling in taxes and fees into the monthly payment.

Does that approach make sense for ED? For instance, the X1 sDrive28i MSRP before options is $33,100 and the ED savings is $1655 for an ED price of $31,455.

So would be be feasible to deduct 7% from the MSRP and then also deduct the $1655, which would result in around $4000 total off MSRP.

Depends on how much motivation - yours, your dealer, your CA - to get a deal done. Each can be different at different times and you just need to start the process to find out.

Since production begins in July for the X1, you can probably shoot for a sending a reservation in early June.

As for pricing, your delta between U.S MSRP and ED on a low MSRP BMW won't be very much since there's even less mark up to work with. The mark up between ED invoice and ED MSRP will be about the same as between U.S. MSRP and U.S. invoice. So at most, there might be a delta of $4k, maybe $5k before dealer adds profit. If you have a good rapport with your CA, just ask for a sample ED invoice for your build and work from there.

But not, it would be more feasible to get 5% and then deduct from there. ED discount is now 5%, not 7%.
