It wasn't until a broker I knew who had a relationship with the GM stepped in and 'made a call'. The next day, I got an email saying that they would honor the 8% deal given our long term relationship. That's it; 1% (begrudgingly) was all the relationship was worth - if that.

Fast forward a year and look what has happened: those 8-10% deals are LONG gone. I can't even imagine what the conversation with my CA would have looked like this October if ordering a new X5. I'm guessing I might be lucky to get the 1% off MSRP vs 0%! Will be interesting to see what happens in 2 years when my lease is up. Could be buying the thing off lease!

So much for the so call "relationship with your AD". My response: buying the car in my current lease that is coming to an end, depriving them of making a profit in my return car lease; and turning around and selling that car a few days later, for an $8 to $12,000 profit (for me). That profit in turn, will make my 8-10% discount on the new incoming ordered car.
Other proofs about what was already said... dealers are in the business to make money. The rest is just nothing and does not matter for them.

I contacted more than 50 dealerships and the best I could get is $3k off MSRP. Lots of dealerships were charging MSRP, some other ones were looking for $5k or even $10k over. I will keep on looking though, I need to contact another 50 dealerships or even more to see if I can get more.

I got $1750 off MSRP, but the incentives were from BMW themselves. 1,000 off for the drive to end hunger promo, and 750 for being a current BMW owner.

I live in the SF Bay Area where people have money to burn and dealers are mainly selling above MSRP.

As an FYI, Victor @ Peter Pan gave me -3.5% off MSRP & -$3250 PenFed in Sept just in case anyone is shopping around the Bay Area.

He was also completely awesome to work with - easily my best dealer experience in 10+ years.

Pfff... unless something happens and a deal comes out of the blue then I won't have an X5M in the near future.

I wonder if those deals are still available now in November. I did check Peter Pan, but they did not have any X5Ms in stock.

Well, yeah, I don't think any dealer will have any in stock - probably gotta wait for an allocation & then have them order one which is what I did ...

For some reason Stevens Creek, Mt View, and SF all had x5ms in stock. The one at SF matched the config I would have ordered perfectly, so I pulled the trigger there. I do understand that these are highly unusual cars to keep on stock and most are probably canceled orders.

I managed to find a dealer willing to do 6% off MSRP. Now I need to wait until tomorrow to see his numbers for a lease to see what he will markup.

After emailing about 80 dealers from the whole US and leaving just a few states out of my search, finally it seems that someone took the bait. But, again, I need to wait to see if what he gives me with one hand won't take back with the other one.

Now how will I trade in my current car if the dealer is out of my state? I can do PCD, but how do I trade my car in?

The so called 6% became 3.94% in reality. The dealership was marking up the MF for the lease from 0.00111 to 0.00151. That was the best discount I was able to get, in rest only a maximum of 2-3% without getting into details to see if they were marking up the MF or not. So, I guess I am done with my hunting for an X5M Competition for this year.
