Default Advice on X3 BMW Purchase

Looking at my first BMW purchase. Been a lifetime fan of GM, I am done with GM. The Pontiac issue, too many years of underperforming cars , bad styling and poor service have just done me in, after 40 years!!
Any advice or suggestion on shopping and purchasing an X3 BMW would be appreciated. thanks, Mark

As with purchasing any kind of car I would suggest doing as much research as possible including an extended test drive (not a 5 minute cruise around the block), it also would not be a bad idea to test drive/look at the competition. Figure out what options you want and price the car out online as well as determine the invoice price...... last find a dealer that is willing to work with you on the purchase.

On a side note BMW has a very nice CPO program so if your not opposed to picking up a year or two old model with low miles you can possibly save yourself some serious coin too.

Good Luck

I'd agree on the CPO program- BMW has one of the best and it's a good deal. Don't want to pay for Bimmer service out of your pocket.
