    the 2000 option credit cash works with the lease in other words bringing down the cap cost? Just making sure it is not only for a finance deal

    The $2,000 Option Allowance is a credit against the MSRP of the final purchase, loan or lease on a 328i Sedan

  • Hey everyone, Pulled the trigger on a 328d xdrive on 2-27 but a friend told me they had over charged me on my monthly payments and money factor. Wanted to see everyone's opinion about talking to the dealership about correcting my contract. Pretty new to the leasing world so help would be nice. We believe they raised my money factor and did not mention MSD. Guess that was my job to know what the numbers meant. MF was .0017 when i should have qualified for .0013. Question is can i still make the complaint and get them to change everything from the MF to letting me bring down the MSD. Appreciate the help

    you could try speaking to the general sales manager and see what they could do but a week has passed already so I dont think there is much room. But then again you never know until you ask and try. best of luck if not learn from your mistake next lease you will be more knowledgeable, let us know what happens. @cabsebastian33

    I think you are totally hosed....you got maxed out on the money factor and almost no dealer's or CA's will ever offer MSD's. Honestly, this is on you... there is tons of info online and you could of saved yourself thousands by spending a few minutes of your time. You can make an appointment with either the sales manager or the finance mgr, but I wouldn't hold your breath about positive results. If you can get an appointment, write down everything that wasn't disclosed to you, especially the money factor and not offering you the MSD's.

    As hard as it is to believe, there are plenty of CA's out there, that have no clue about MSD's.

  • I spoke to the GM today. I let him know what the concerns were and he said he would give me a call back. I understand its been a week but i had actuually gone back a few days later with my friend to get a breakdown of what the numbers were. The finance person said that i qualified for a certain MF which he says could not be changed. We found out that i was being given the highest MF available when i qualified for the lowest. We gave him an opportunity to fix the issue, but he had no problem lying to our face about what i qualified for. So then i decided to give them a call the next time they were open. Unfortunately the next time they were open we were hit with snow, enough to close down their dealership in MD.

  • Something about the numbers weren't right so going back there a few days later after i signed the papers was the plan. I understand that it may be a long shot to get anything fixed here, but going back and giving the finance guy a chance to fix the problem- and he didnt, Im now going to go straight to the GM about it. Next step is the BBB

    I don't think you have any recourse. They aren't required to give you the lowest rate, or even disclose it on a lease. While I've used MSDs, I would venture a guess that they are involved in less than 5% of BMW leases, so that's not a program that I've ever had a dealer volunteer information on..

    If you want to give it a try, there is no harm in complaining that you were misled. Maybe they'll make some sort of adjustment to keep a customer happy, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Everyone makes mistakes on their first lease... I'd chalk it up to a learning experience, and do more research the next time.

    Thanks @Kyfdx means a lot I was in his shoes and I waited to long and had no one really to guide me, then I found this website and truly happy there is ppl like you helping others with their decision making on their vehicle. As well giving us the knowledge we need to make a good decision. So Im returning the favor.

  • konacougkonacoug Kailua-KonaPosts: 194

    This why I am on here too, trying to help people understand the BMW leasing process. I got hosed back in 05, lied to about the money factor and acquisition fee. I do feel the cabsebastian33 does have one valid point about being mislead about what MF rate he qualified for. The Finance guy makes extra bucks when he ups the mf rate. Just like he makes money selling all the insurance products too, usually with high pressure and scare tactics!!

  • I believe that when you have had too many bad experiences with being lied to and misled as I have, you have to try to make things right as often as they keep doing it you. And when the person who couldn't make it right the first or the second time, you go to someone who is higher up. Making money they will do -through packages such as dent repair, cilajet, tire and wheel package, but overall honesty and ethics I feel they need to at least have. That's how you build a relationship with your customers and keep them coming back. I've also seen this happen with friends who have no experience with dealing with car salesmen and the financing people. They get taken advantage of like crazy! To the point where everyone is very rude to them!!? I have helped these friends make things right by going back to the dealer and setting things straight. Ethics come into play most of the time and alot of dealers don't have them. That's why there is the Better Business Bureau existing so customers don't have to deal with what we have. I don't necessarily need the car so if I have to, I'll give it back. They already got a thousand dollars for a down payment and fortunately that's all I put down and will lose if I give the car back. We are the ones giving them business so overall satisfaction is important. Feeling like you are paying the right money is very important. But if they mess up, that's their reputation on the line also.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 30,460

    Well.. be careful. You can't actually give the car back. You signed on the dotted line, and took delivery. It is now your obligation to make the payments to BMWFS, who purchased the car from the dealership, now owns it, and rents it to you.

    If you don't make your payments, you can lose a lot more than $1000. I'm not a lawyer, so that's not legal advice. But, it is the voice of experience.

    Just call up the dealership, express your disappointment in how you were treated, and see if they offer to do anything to mitigate it.

    Good luck!

    Hi guys, have a few questions and would appreciate the input.

    Looking for residual on 2014 328i 3yrs/30k miles.

    I know that base MF is .00130 but am I correct in my understanding that loyalty rate starts at .00125 and that is how you are getting to .00076 with 7 MSDs?

    Also, can I safely assume the $2,000 option allowance currently being offered by BMW FS is available or do I need to specifically ask the dealer if they are participating?

    Anyone getting .00125 (or .00076 with MSDs) locked in that rate when they ordered a vehicle in a previous month. The current MF is .00130, and the residual for 36 mo, 10K/yr is 62%.

    The option allowance is there for all dealers. When you are negotiating, make sure it's clear if their quotes include the $2000 credit.

    Looking at a 2013 M3 for lease.. tried the 2013 thread but it was closed. There are a couple left at dealer lots in the area.. looking for MF and 3yr residual @10K miles. Any help would be appreciated!

    Thanks

    Thanks

    For the 2013 M3, they have reverted to a dollar-based residual. I don't know what that amount is, but it would hurt if you were leasing a highly optioned unit, as all M3 coupes would have the same residual. The money factor is .00130, and it looks like there might be $1500 of dealer cash, this month.

    I am looking at a 2014 328ix, with Premium Pkg and Driver Assist. msrp 45325 less 5000 discount ( I assume includes incentives) plus MD taxes, nitrogen,fees, etc, etc to bring it to 43,451.80. I would put in 7 MSD . Dealer says MF is .00081 and residual is 61%. For a 36/12000 lease he says $524. Thoughts please?

  • retsoretso Posts: 1

    Hi! I read through this forum before I leased my 2014 328i and thank you to everyone who has posted. I thought I should share the deal that I got in case it helps anyone. Bought mid Feb,2014.

    2014 328i Sedan Sport Line with nav and metallic paint. 3yr/36k miles.

    MSRP: $43,425.00 Selling price: $37,350.00 (includes $2000 in manufacturers rebates) Money factor: .0013 Residual: 61% Monthly payment: $420 (including CA tax) Paid at signing( lic+reg, bank fee+doc fee+1st payment) = $1900+/- I also paid an additional $800 for insurance for up to $7500 work of damage at return (includes tires and wheels) Let me know what you all think. I thought I did pretty good. Love my 1st BMW! :)

  • rustymontyrustymonty Posts: 11

    Love the quote I got today as it is laughable. 2014 328i , $44,925 MSRP, Prem Pkg, Luxury line, Driver convenience pkg. 36 mth, 15K per year. Inceptions which was not defined but probably the usual $1,500-$1,800. Payment $645 mth plus tax. Really are they kidding???

    Thanks to all who contribute to this forum. I'm new to leasing and the information here has been very helpful!

    I'm looking to pick up a 2014 328d wagon in glacier silver metalic with driver assist package, navigation, premium package, and rear shades. The MSRP is $49,975.

    I see that the advertised incentives are $500 eco credit and $1000 options allowance, currently.

    What can I expect to be able to negotiate to, given that an invoice amount is around $45,760?

    What are the current MF and residuals for this model?

    I'm planning on putting in 7 SDs. Any other advice I should be aware of before I start the negotiation process?

    Thanks in advance!

  • ivierlin27ivierlin27 Austin, TXPosts: 5

    I forgot to note that I'm looking for 12k and 15k mileage estimates for the lease.

    Cheers!

    If $43,541.80 is the CAP cost, then .00081 MF and 61% residual (which are correct) result in a payment of $496.58.
