    Hello from Philly

    Want to first thank all the posters. I have been skulking around for a month and a lot of valuable comments and posts got me off the fence two weeks ago. I picked up a Baltic blue prestige. It was hard to say goodbye to the X5 but it has been worth it. The only bust is lack of space for cargo. Will be picking up a Thule or Yakima cargo box this weekend for those trips that need the space. Wish we had a flush mount hitch too. This extended member that LR is selling is not attractive. Paid a lot less than msrp and got free install on the roof rack in the price. I am thinking it was a good time to buy. Wondering about 325? T'is my plate# and was on my first BMW. thanks all for being helpfull!!! This is the best looking and most fun to drive car I have owned so far.

    Congratulations on your purchase. I have had my dynamic for about six weeks and it drives so well. What discount did you get off MSRP..I only got $500 off..not much of a discount but got financing at 2.9%.

    $3800 is a nice chunk of change! I can't beat that. We split the invoice and msrp in half plus they sold me the roof rack and rail at cost and installed for free. Overall roughly $2700. I was shocked that they budged.

    When I was car shopping I was a bit uneasy about KBB projecting my Evoque was going to lose about 40% value in the first year (or as I drove off the lot) and would be down to 50% after two years. I hope their estimates are just bad guesses due to being a new model. Obviously I ignored them, but if they don't get a few of the problems fixed it might be an omen.

    Purchasing an Evoque doesn't sound encouraging after looking at that projection graph. I checkout that info about the Evoque and the KBB Editors' Overview made this statement in the pricing notes.

    KBB Pricing Notes
    Products from Land Rover tend to suffer from below average residual values, a trend we expect to be somewhat tempered by the Evoque's strong desirability.

    I also checkout the Pure Coupe residual value and it lost about 37% of it's value after the first year compared to Edmunds.com showing it only lost about 25.8%. I couldn't find the residual value of the Dynamic Coupe on Edmunds.com.
