2013 X3 pricing

My wife is looking at a 2013 X3, just wondering what others are paying for the new X3 these days. We are in the Northeast US region, is invoice price realistic for a brand new X3?

$500 over invoice is a good deal.

Thats about $800 over invoice, BMW's invoice is usually around 92% of MSRP, not including the MACO training fee of around $350 or so.

No way my dealer would have done that for special order (which I did).

I agree, its definitely less incentives for a dealer to negociate on a special order than one a car they have in stock.

But at the same time, you're giving them a "promise" that you'll buy the car when it arrives. It's also likely that the car will be more expensive and personalized. If you ordered Vermillion Red with Mohave leather (or a weird assortment of options), a dealer is going to struggle to turn that car over if you refuse the deal upon delivery.

...and they're paying inventory carrying costs, so more incentive to discount vehicles on the lot.

California....got mine at end of Dec. Competitive market + year end = reason for deep discount, I believe. Overall, quite happy with the deal.

It depends on who you get, I know a guy who sells under invoice... but most people will tell you you have to pay $500 over and up. It really depends on your market
