Checking to make sure the deal I have on the table for a fully loaded X3 M (not comp) is solid after a few rounds of back and forth with a dealer in the tri-state area. Goes without saying I absolutely love the car, why else would I be willing to pay the front-loaded massive depreciation on what’s basically a racing SUV that doesn’t really need to exist!

Car is brand new (9 miles). I’ve seen some better upfront discounts on this site, but those were mainly in December and I’m aware it’ll be tough to beat those deals. I have no sense of how well these are selling nationally and if the discounts are expected to improve.
One other thing totally separate from the base deal - the car comes with a spare in the trunk even though it has run flats, which raises the trunk bed a few inches above the bottom latch. Visually unattractive and frankly unnecessary. You can build the car with a mobility kit instead of the spare that lowers the trunk bed back down to the floor of the bay for free (it’s user choice basically), so I’m considering asking them to swap out the trunk bed / spare with one from a standard mobility kit vehicle as part of the deal. Am I crazy for trying this?
