Guys thanks for the replies..The deal I got so far was 300$ above invoice. Could any of u confirm that the base price on the car is going up 500$ Oct 1st?

Just now, drove the Cayenne turbo again. Nice car but not worth the 30K difference.

One other Q for u guys is that: with the new X5 I noticed that the round day time running lights are xenons but on the 12' X5M they are halogens...Would love to get the Xenons on there? Is it possible?
Lemans is that what u were talking about when u were talking about " angel eyes"?

Also do u guys know when the M is due for a design change? (know it is a 7yr cycle..)

The 7 year cycle will happen after the 3rd gen X5 arrives in 2013 as 2014 model. The mid year refresh or LCI will follow the X6 LCI, since X5M is same as X6M ahead of A pillar. X5M and X6M LCI is expected in spring, but they may slide changes in October, as they are not following any rules these days. Price change is below.

If you want to wait till Spring 2012 and don't care about space.

I like the SUV because of the height specially with the winters here.....Fell in love with it after I drove it.

Lemans sorry for the noob Q: what is X5M CRT and X6M CSL?

I got mine because of two child seats in the back and much easier entry and exit with no need to bend down to put kids in the car. If I had no kids or grown kids perhaps I would go with something else like M5. You need to do this based on your needs, there is no perfect car for everyone. X5M is a fun, practical truck for my needs. X6M CSL or X5M CRT are not confirmed but if they do get produced they are the more performance variations of the car that are typically lighter as well. There are spy pics of a new bader looking X6M which is rumored to be lighter and more powerful. CSL and CRT are designations used by BMW in the past for such limited runs. I doubt they will be available for US market anyway.

With ESS will the warranty be void and also is there a local dealer that does it or is it done by the owner of the vehicle. With Dinan the dealer told me that BMW warranty stays intact...too expensive though

Been following the "it has begun" thread.. good results from the flash though
