BMW X3 Lease Questions



  • Thanks for clarifying Car_man. I wasn't sure about the $750 Dealer Cash as a savings option for the X3.

  • You're very welcome soupaman.

    Anybody know how many MSDs you can do with BMW and how much each one reduces the MF? Looking at a 2012 X3 28i if that matters.

    Also, any recommendations on great internet departments at dealers in N. California (or SoCal).

    How does this deal sound?

    2012 X3 28i
    Metallic paint
    Tech Package
    Premium Package

    MSRP: $44,925
    Sale price: $42,000

    36 month lease (10k miles/yr):
    $3415 due at signing (includes 1st payment and taxes)

    Residual is $26,056 (58%)

    Is there more room here? I pretty sure there is by the reaction of the sales rep when I got up to leave, but I'm wondering how much lower I can get it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm in the Bay Area too. What dealership gave you $500 over on your 28i lease?

  • Hiya. Have the BMWFS rates for a 36-month, 12,000 miles-per-year lease of a 2011 BMW xDrive35i changed since last month?
    According to this forum, i think they were at 0.00195 and 58%.

    I'm going to a dealership in about three hours :-\
  • Nope, they haven't. :)

    My dealer (in Massachusetts) is insisting that the 3-yr 12,000 mile residual value on an X3 currently is 56% not 58%. This contradicts the info a few posts up. I've bought 2 cars from this dealer so I'm hoping they're not lying to me? Are they?
  • according to the schedule posted at, the residual is 54%, i believe this is standardized for 15k/yr. elsewhere on that forum, someone wrote there was an adjustment of +2% if you lower the mileage to 12k, so 56 sounds right. the residuals changed as of the beginning of nov, and are lowered every 2mos afaik.
  • Hi - I am looking to lease a new X3 35i. I am in the NY metro area and am returning my old 335i (lease expires in Jan 2012). After going through the forums I am still a little confused about what I should aim. Please suggest:

    MSRP: 51175 (X3 35i, metallic, cold weather, technology and premium)

    BMW finance discount: -1000
    Dealer discount: -3000 (I think this is prob the best I can aim for)

    Net cost: 47175

    MF Factor: 0.000195
    Loyalty discount: -0.00030
    Enhanced loyalty: -0.00075 (not sure if i qualify for both?)
    MSD: -0.00049 (I live in NYC but I can lease a car from NJ to do this)

    Final MF Factor: 0.00041

    Residual: 56% (12K, 36 months)
    Monthly : Around 600 USD + Registration + other fees + security deposits

    Do u think this is reasonable to aim for ? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need to close this very soon...

    Thanks !

    Hi jdmass. BMW FS' current 36-month, 12k residual value for a 2012 X3 is 56%. The posts that you saw are referencing an expired program.

  • Car_man -

    Care to post the updated rates and residuals for January? I'm looking at both the xDrive28 and xDrive35.
  • Hello chdavis. BMW Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 X3 xDrive28 with 15,000 miles per year are .00195 and 55%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an X3 xDrive35 are interestingly exactly the same.

    Was just quoted the following from a BMW dealership...'12 X3 xDrive 2.8i (MSRP: $47,800)... convenience pckg, cold weather pckg, premium pckg, technology pckg, roof rails...$660 p mth. $3,600 due at signing. Seems high to me, no? Should I be looking at an X5 or ML 350 instead? Also, is cargo space too small in an X3? Thanks.
  • Hey dlcd23. Do you happen to know what this vehicle's selling price is? Having it will make this deal much easier to evaluate.

  • Don't forget to include sales tax in any lease equation - which is why I bought. 1.99% for five years through Triple A, $44,995 list for a 28i with convenience, premium, cold weather, satellite radio and roof rails, including the $895 delivery fee. Negotiated price was $42,250 at Wagner BMW in Shrewsbury MA - what a pleasure to deal with! Car built to order (wife is fussy about color!) and delivered in less than 3 weeks. Happy driving!

    Hi Car_Man,

    I was wondering if you could help me out with a few questions. I'm currently negotiating a lease deal with my dealer for 2012 x3 that was a demo. It has about 3k miles on it and its base as far as options go. I was thinking that this car should go below invoice since it is a Demo model. I also have another BMW so I get loyalty incentives. Whats a good or fair price on a car like this? I cant seem to find any information in leasing demo models online. Also, could you include the current money factors and residuals for a 12k mile 36mo lease?

    Thanks a lot!!

    Hi manny431. It's difficult to say how large a discount the dealer will be willing to provide you on this truck, but I completely agree with you that I would want a selling price of under invoice on a demo vehicle that has over 3,000 miles on it.

    BMW Financial Services' April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 X3 2.8 with 12,000 miles per year are .00190 and 57%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.
