What was MSRP? And if this is a lease what money factor? Thanks.
On a lease the money factor is .00145%
Yes, thanks. That's what I was quoted and locked unless it gets lowered by the time mine arrives. Cheers!

Just beware that dealers are allowed to mark it up .00040% and I was one of those unhappy customers. It ended up raising my lease by $40 a month. However as a consideration I ended up receiving some other perks valued at closer to $2000 so I feel it is a wash. But be on the lookout and I owe a ton of gratitude to Beammeupscottie for opening my eyes to this. I have purchased/leased 11 vehicles from this dealership and not sure how many times this happened to me.

Congrats. Just curious does the steering wheel vibrate when at idle? If in drive at a red light.

The X3 M40i is notorious for this. Unfortunately, it's considered "normal" and we have all had to live with it.

Check this thread:

https://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1561709

I recall seeing (possibly in another thread) on X3 G01 forum a while back that one owner had the idle RPM adjusted by the dealership, and the vibration at idle went away.

Thanks. I actually started that thread you linked. They gave me a bs line that the engine is powerful so you can feel it. Absurd. If thats the case you should feel it in this car as well. Im going to a drive event this weekend to drive the X3M and will see whats what.

Congrats looks great!!

I am actually contemplating the idea of grabbing an X3MC (I have 5 months left on my 17í ZCP M3). Iím having a hard time letting go the M3 tho but Iím also not the type to refinance so I guess I should grab one of these until the G80 shows up.

Yes, agree with refinancing or paying off the balance. I leased a vehicle 10yrs ago and the value vs pay off was a diff of $6k in my pocket should I decide to pay off and sell privately. so I paid it off not because I wanted to make profit selling it but I liked the vehicle so much.

Thanks! Nope, I was actually in negotiations with Weatherford and they wanted $95k out the door because mark up for the market. I of course didn't buy that BS.

I'm glad I cancelled my order as I found one at a dealers lot with the same specs I wanted and I got $8500 off MSRP.

Anyone else in the Bay Area take delivery of theres?
Which dealer is this? Thatís an awesome deal for a just released car. Please let me know and Iíll contact them ASAP! Haha

I think this is where I am now. I feel like I would miss the M3 character itís flares, itís looks n all of it that evolves around an M3. Did I mention I only have 11,500 miles on it. Another reason why I think I should not give this car back to bmw.

Yes I would most def keep it especially if you have taken great care of it which I'm sure you have. Also, The X3M can't replace an M3. It's fast with over 500hp but it just doesn't feel as visceral as my M2 or M3 for that matter

No kidding, this was super-great deal, not sure this is typical for now.
I had to pull crazy resourceful moves to get my M3 ZCP back on the last run of F80 M3, dealers wouldn't budge on discount of -$3250 (was able to do $3000 BMWFS incentive, $1500 loyalty and $1500 fleet) to bring it to my liking

And you got -7000MSRP (this is below invoice!) + $1500 loyalty on super brand new X3MC, congrats.

I couldnít agree more I believe this is where Iím leaning now. You have no idea I had babied this car to the max. Always climate control garage kept, never driven on snow or salt. Rain only when I got caught on it Go figure lol I think she is a keeper.
