    I'm thinking the same thing. Maybe time to move on but I am really thinking of now holding out for a 2015 that should hopefully be announced soon.

    Right at the top, it states: PURCHASE OPTION. That is if you buy the vehicle, not lease it...

    does BMW offers "loyalty credit" for current BMW lease holders?

    There is a 'pull ahead' program if you have a current BMW lease - if your lease ends in April, May or June BMWFS will waive 3 payments. If your lease ends anywhere from July to December, they will waive up to 6 payments.

    There is also a $1500 option credit for all 5-series.

    The only loyalty credit I see is for current X3 leaseholders.

    When I plug all your numbers in, I get a post-tax payment of $704.75. Not sure why there is a difference with your numbers, but I can tell you that the dealer did not mark up either the MF or the Acquisition Fee, which is good.

    I just received a quote on a 528 XI sedan. Lease for 36 months. 15K miles. . List price is $58,625 which includes, premium package, cold weather and driver assist (includes heads up display). Residual is 59%($34,588.75). $1,500 credit. Discount is $3,695.00. Due at signing is $2,406.81 which includes $637.51 first month payment, $725 bank fee (plus $50.75 tax on fee), $369 Doc Fee ($25.85 tax on fee[7%]), $385 for plates, registration etc. and $215.72 excise tax. MF =.00081 (I think). I am pulling ahead the last 4 months of my lease on a 328xi. What say you on this deal?

    It's likely your money factor is .00130, as the .00081 is only available if you are doing multiple security deposits.

    I am doing 7 security deposits. How much better should I be doing than $637.51 with no money down?

    If you are happy with the selling price, then the numbers are all good. You've got the base rates, all the way through..

    Thank you very much.

    Thanks. I appreciate that. Although, I do not know I could being doing better on the selling price. Is the $637.51 in the ballpark for this configuration?

    Yes, since you are getting the base rate (minus MSD) for the money factor, the only way to reduce the payment is to negotiate a better selling price.

    Sorry. When you say option credit cash of $1500.00, this is a credit? To be further applied to negotiated price? What else can you do with it? Also, in the Audi forum, 6% was a reasonable amount to negotiate down to off MSRP. Does this apply to BMW as well?

    Yes, the $1500 option credit can be deducted from your best negotiated selling price.

    I'm not in the market for a BMW (though my daughter just bought a MINI last week), so I can't tell you what an acceptable discount would be. For Audi, my company is also a partner, so I can confirm the 6% discount from MSRP.

    Do you think the $637.51 is a fair or high monthly payment with these options- cold weather, premium and driver assist? (residual 59% and 7MSDs).

    I think my co-host has answered that question a few posts back. The only wiggle room you have is in the selling price, but the dealer may have gone as low as they can. All you can do is ask.

    To those who have test driven or are currently in a 528i, how do you feel about the 4 cylinder engine?

    .00130 MF and 60% residual on 36mo, 12K/yr. 66% residual on 24mo/12K.
    BMW doesn't subsidize 48 month leases.

    $1500 option credit cash. $500 eco credit.

    So, I jumped to BMW for consideration and found the following vehicle. BMW 528i 2.0L 4 cylinder engine MSRP of $56,910.00 Total due at Inception $1564.00 Monthly payment of $584.00 tax included.

    What I don't have is the residual or the money factor so I don't know how to calculate the purchase price. Can anyone help me reverse engineer this deal?

    It would be for a 10K/36 month lease. I'm in FL so tax rate is 7%.

    Is this a good deal?

  • hypnoticshypnotics Posts: 30

    Is it possible to confirm MF and residuals for 528xi and 535xi? For 528xi I have 61% 0.00130 for 36m 12k/yr and for 535xi 62% 0.00125 36m 12k/yr?

    Thanks in advance

    .00130 is the base MF and 62% is the residual for 36/10K

    Think I did OK on a 2014 535D 36 month 10K lease today.. 10% off MSRP ($56K) - 7 MSD - 0 Down - Maybe a little heavy on the junk fees:) $4,550 Deposit / $90. Reg / $371 Lisc / $72 Sales/Use Tax / $725 Acq / $80 Doc prep / $7 Title / .00091 money MF / 61% resid - $643. Payment… SF Bay Area 9% tax rate.

    Hi, I tried to use .00130 MF and 62% residual on BMW advertised 10k/36month lease deal, which is based on $58,400 MSRP, $1500 cash and $3000 downpayment. A sales price of $54600 gives advertised $539/month. And Edmunds' true market value is $54100, which gives $521/month. Is advertised special really so close to "best" deal? Thanks!

  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 29,801

    It's often possible to beat the advertised deals. Of course, there are plenty of dealers that will still try to mark up every number, and offer worse deals, as well.

    Hi, Can you post MF and residual value for a 550i, 10k miles/year, 3 yr term, as well as MSD credit info? Also, how much above/below invoice should I typically expect for a 550i?
