Sorry for the separate question here but I am a new member and cannot create a new thread yet.

I have signed an offer to buy a 2013 X3 xDRIVE28i and was told that the plant had run out of the standard rims and that 18" silver alloy wheels would be included on the car I would get at no additional cost. Now, they tell me that the car I will get does not come with the 18" silver alloy wheels.

I am a BMW newbie, but I think I should be asking for either a price reduction or for some addition but I'm not really sure -- What do you think about this? What should I try to get?

get a picture of the wheels, hey it might be benefit to you.


my x3 is currently in service shop for sunroof noise which was repair, black molding inside the door on the body had to be replaced, also drivers vent had a noise and it was repair. Also discover a nail on rear runflat, new tire is $286. So according to the shop runflats cannot be repair lol

Thanks unfortunately I can't get a picture.

My question is that I have an offer in with a promise to get 18" silver alloy wheels but that one was old so, now they tell I can only get the standard tires.

Since I am now getting less 'value' at an agreed upon price, I think I should either ask for a price reduction or get something added of equal value.

Does anyone have an opinion on this?

To be fair to bartbos1, he did apologise for hijacking and forum rules don't allow newbies to create new threads

It does after you make 3 posts and get authorized. Then there's the annoyance of posting multiple times. Pointing the discussion over to one thread is better for the community and I was civil about it IHMO.
