Ordering new 2013 X3

I'm ordering my new 2013 35i X3, Space Gray/Oyster, in the next couple of weeks so I'll be new to the forum I also have a 2011 135i which I just love. My question to everyone is, I'm paying about $4100.00 below MSRP with incentives, is this a good deal?

I personally think it is better to deal from invoice up. It is common if you shop around to get $500 over invoice.

I agree. Talking about how much below MSRP makes no sense to me.

Ok, after looking at my paperwork I'm getting it for $515.00 over invoice. So I guess I'm getting a good deal.

You got a good deal!

It depends what part of the US the buyer is in- where there's more BMW dealers there's slightly lower prices due to competition. In Canada you may not have as many competitive markets. 6% off MSRP is a good price.

The question is: what is the optioned MSRP of your car? If $4,100 represents at least a 7% discount, then you have yourself an enviable deal.

The X3 is responsible for an unprecedented annual increase in overall North American BMW sales for the company. So...yeah, still hot.

I'm shopping around for x3 right now as well

35i
AW
m sport
premium
premium sound
tech
cold weather package

so far got 1500 above invoice, obviously looking for something closer to just invoice.

My question is will i get the incentives in addition to what price i agreed on? Also how reliable is edmunds.com in regards to invoice pricing...

Thanks,
PJ

I would keep looking. You should be able to get $500 over invoice or close to it. Incentives should be in addition to whatever price you agree upon. Don't know if you are close to Northern California, but I've read great things about people dealing with Jon Shafer in Santa Barbara BMW.

Thanks...I just got quoted invoice which will be 51,600 for the car spec'd out like that. Its 800 more than invoice quoted on edmonds but edmonds had 2012, plus add maco. sounds like a legit deal.

Time to pull the trigger?

You should wait for at least a month or two, the prices should fall. More inventory is being redirected to the states because a slump in Europe

I got my 28i Space Grey M Sport, premium, premium sound, technology, cold, convenience for 6.8% below MSRP after negotiation. Anything better than 6% below MSRP is a great deal in my book. I had to travel 150 miles to find it, but was worth it. Drive home was awesome!

Dealer, Other Incentives?

Hey bmw4cal,

Who was the dealer and was this in stock or ordered? Was the $750 customer loyalty or any other incentives included in the net price?

Thanks,

Lee

Irvine BMW. It was in stock. Since my sister lives at the different address, $750 loyalty does not apply. I'm not aware of any other incentives.

The X3 is on our short list for a vehicle of this form factor, but it's hard to determine from talking with local dealers what they actually sell them for. I'm disappointed that all the formal incentives seem related to financing rather than the vehicles themselves . . . .

Have you found that dealers will negotiate less when they know you can apply incentives in an effort to apply a portion of those incentives to their own bottom lines?

With no effort you should be able to get 5% off the sticker price anywhere in the DMV.

Edmunds is right on.

You should be able to get $500 above invoice. You need to call 4-5 dealers and take the lowest price to the dealer closest to where you live/work and they will match it if they know you're serious about buying the vehicle from them.
