Talking Ordering a 2012 X5M!

So finally pulled the triger after researching the X5M and soon enough it'll be here. Here's what I'm going with:

2012 X5M in Monte Carlo Blue w/ Silverstone II Merino interior & Carbon Leather Trim
Cold Weather Package
Rear Climate Package
Premium Sound
Active Ventilated Seats (Originally wasn't going to get this but test drove one and Oh Yeah Gotta Have it)
Driver Assistance Package
Comfort Access
High Gloss Rails
BMW Apps
Side View Camera

Got it for $1,500 over invoice on a 3 year 12K lease w/ no money down but will be doing 7 MSDs to lower the MF. Dealer is also throwing in the BMW 3M Stone Guard as part of the deal so pretty happy with all this. Deal is not signed yet cause the dealer is going to research some non-bmw winter wheel/tire options for me & get back to me on the MF so if all that comes back good then I'll go w/ it. Can't wait!

So here's a question. Originally I was thinking of the BMW X5M Winter Wheel/Tire package but the business manager said that was too expensive (over $4K) and that I should really find a set from Tire Rack. I told him I didn't think Tire Rack had anything that fit the X5M but he swears they have another X5M owner w/ winter wheel/tire they purchased at Tire Rack because the dealer actually bought it from Tire Rack & had them installed. So I need help here. What wheel/tire combo from Tire Rack fits the X5M?

seriously you are spending 100k on the car, does it really matter if you find a winter wheel set that is a grand cheaper??? Get the style 298 wheels, it can be had with tires mounted and balanced around 3.5k

Where can I find the OEM 298 wheels & tires mounted & balanced for $3.5K cause the dealer said their cost on the wheels is about $4K plus tires & that's why they suggested I go w/ an alternate since this is a lease.

Use the original rims as your winter and run another larger set as your summers!

Do a search here, one of the members had got them from the dealer for that price. If you decide to go tire rack route, beware that regular x5 wheels don't fit

Heads up - don't order the silverstone interior, it is more of a white than a grey color, gets dirty real easy, and the stitching - especially where it starts pulling apart, is really visible. I was really disapointed with it.

Cheers,

I did do a search & found the poster who said he got his 298 wheels & tires for $3.5K so that's what I went in to order but that's when I was told I'd be better off getting non bmw wheels because the dealer cost on just the wheels is $4.2K and you still have to add tires so he was thinking it would be around $6K so that's why I'm scrambling now. Again this being a lease I don't want to shell out $6K for a set of wheels/tires that I may or may not be able to sell in 3 years so looking for options. I don't want to buy 21" wheels & tires for summer & use the stock wheels for winter use either because I'd have to buy 1 set of 21" wheels plus new summer tires and a set of winter tires.

Doesn't look like many options. Either pay $6K for the BMW winter solution; use stock wheels w/ new winter tires & buy a new summer wheel/tire package which probably runs about $6K as well; or mount all season tires (Continental ExtremeContact DWS) on the stock wheels with the space saver spare & run those year round and give up optimal summer/winter driving performance.

Help!

Really? I saw a leather sample at the dealer and it certainly looked gray but I was concerned about this. So you had it & had problems with dirt and the stitching coming apart???? Man between this & the winter wheel issue I'm beggining to get cold feet! The only options for the active seat are Silverstone II, Black or the Beige but I really want something other than black & haven't seen the Beige.

I`ve had a few problems, and this particular one has been a headache! This is not like the silverstone in the current M3 - but lighter - much lighter........ I would go with black IMO.

Cheers,
