Yeah BMW dealerships in the Chicago area are known for that (as are Audi) making it sound like they have very few available and you have to pay MSRP to get one. Wait a month and you will see a ton on their floor, its just pre-launch hype they are hoping to capitalize on, these are not going to be flying off their floors in the US.
If I end up getting an X1 I expect to pay Invoice (including the $1,000 drive USA discount, so the dealer would actually get $1,000 over invoice...)
