    New to the leasing world and need some guidance. I am looking to lease a 2014 BMW X3. MSRP is $47,375 ( haven't negotiated this yet). 42 months with 16k miles per year ( wanted 48 months, but he said it was more expensive) - License and fees of $400 and first month payment up front - $727.65 per month. Tax rate where I live is 8% and is factored into the lease payment. Seems very high to me compared to the $630 I was quoted on a $51k Lexus for 48 months. Is the $727 way out of line?

    Thank you for the advice.

    You can't compare payments on different vehicles like that. Money factors and residuals, which determine the payment, can vary significantly depending on the vehicle. For example, I've leased BMWs with a higher MSRP for a much lower payment than a much cheaper Audi because of the reasons I mentioned. Use a lease calculator online and familiarize yourself with how the payments are computed. You negotiate the sale price of the car just like you would if you were buying the car.

    I understand that I can't compare rates on different cars as the residuals are different. I was just using it as a point of reference. I was hoping others could chime in and express whether they thought my rates were high in comparison to what they may have been quoted.

    You could get a X5 for that price, that is way to much

    BMWFS doesn't release that information to dealers until August.

    Leasing is very new to me. I have the following scenario...

    2014 X3 28i
    Alpine white with black leatherette
    -M Sport package
    -Lighting package
    -Panoramic moonroof
    -Heated front seats

    MSRP: $46,275
    Best price: $43,491
    Lease payment: $553 (36 months/10k miles per year)
    Money factor: .00127

    My trade-in of $3500 has also been factored in.

    I think it seems a bit high compared to what others have been offered.

    What are your thoughts?

    What is the residual of this BMW? How is the 3500 being applied?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    You're welcome MattyG. BMW Financial Services' July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 2014 xDrive28i with 15,000 miles per year are .00127 and 54% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    BMW has not announced its program for August yet.

    Residual is 57%.

    $3500 trade-in is being applied towards tax, title, license, other fees. $380 of balance will be applied towards cap cost reduction.

    Thank you in advance for your input!
  • steevosteevo Posts: 332
    That was a great deal. Do you or anyone know if the 2014 x3 numbers changed for august? The corporate advertised lease special was extended so I am guessing that the MF and residual remains at .00127 and 54% for august but I haven't confirmed it yet.
  • steevosteevo Posts: 332
    For anyone following along here, the August MF is .00125.
  • I am considering a lease on a 2014 X3 35i. I am contemplating leasing for either 36 or 39 months. Could someone please tell me what the residual and MF would be? I have tier 1 credit.

    Thank You.

  • Hi Car Man! Can you please provide the October 2014 residual and money factor for an X3 28i for 36 months and 15,000 miles per year?

    Been back and forth off and on with a dealer for a few months about this and I feel like I'm getting taken.

    Thanks!

  • My dealer claims 56% residual is for 12k/per year lease. Is that not the case?
  • I am interested to know whether this is the case as well. Thanks!
  • Hello! I put together the following deal on my own after going round and round with a local BMW dealer.

    I am using the following data:

    October MF (.00125) and Residual (56%) -- are these correct for October?

    36 months
    15,000 miles/year

    2014 BMW X3 28i
    M Sport Package
    Panoramic Roof
    Heated front seats
    Lighting Package

    MSRP: $46,275
    Edmunds TMV Price: $44,000
    Assume $1,000 cash down and $1,000 BMW Ultimate Drive cash

    Price for calculation: $42,000

    Monthly payment: $531.72 + 10% tax

    Does this number see right based on my assumptions above?
    Also, what else could I expect to pay at signing other than the $1,000 down?

    I appreciate your help!

    56% is the 36 month, 15K/yr residual for the 2014 X3 28i..

    Did you talk to him on Monday? Residuals have improved in October.

    Your calculations are on the money....

    Add the acquistion fee ($725 base.... dealer can add up to $200 more)
    Title and registration fees ($200-$500, depending on state)
    Dealer doc fee (extra profit... $75 in NY, $80 in CA, $250 in OH.. all capped by state law.... $189-$799 elsewhere, or whatever they can get away with)

    Some dealers will also try to mark-up the money factor.. BMWFS allows up to .0004 extra.. Don't mention the invoice price, or they will try to add advertising fees, training fees, etc, etc.. those fees are all on their invoice, but you aren't paying their invoice, you are paying a negotiated price..

    Hope that helps..

  • Thank you so much for your help!

    I actually just responded to the dealer and dropped the cap cost to $41,500 (incl $1,000 cash and $1,000 BMW Ultimate Drive cash).

    The $43,500 cap cost is almost $1,000 over invoice which, I feel is a fair profit. Am I off base here?

    By adjusting the calculation by another $500, It took the payment to approximately $568, which includes 10% lease tax in Allegheny County, PA. Does this payment sound right given the .00125 MF and 56% residual?

    Do you feel that a Cap Cost of $43,500 is a fair price on an invoice price of $42,590?

    Also, does the BMW Ultimate Drive cash calculate literally like an additional $1,000 cash down?

    You're the best. Thanks so much!
    Matty G.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 29,250
    Your payment was exactly correct before, so I'm sure if you are adjusting it, it's fine..

    I'm not sure how the Ultimate Drive cash works... It most likely has to be used as a CAP cost reduction, rather than a reduction in the price of the vehicle (so, yes.. this means you'll pay sales tax on the higher amount)..

    That's something else to factor in from before.. any money paid upfront will be taxed, just like the monthly payment...

  • Thanks! Would you still add 2% for a 12k lease?
  • Hello car God! I have one other question. I am going to be trading in my current vehicle. If I'm lucky, I will break even on it because I still have a payoff.

    I am in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. Do you know whether a trade in for a new leased vehicle has a beneficial tax implication?

    Does it affect the answer if you have a payoff?

    Sickly, by trading my current vehicle in, even though I still have a payoff, will I be able to get a sales tax break on my monthly payment?

    Thanks So much!
    Matty G.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 29,250
    Yes... almost every BMW lease adds 2% to the residual to go from 15K/yr to 12K/yr...

    Your payoff shouldn't have any impact... but, generally, you don't get any sort of tax forgiveness, when trading a car in on a lease... because the lease is in the bank's name, not yours..

    Of course, that is just a general observation.... PA may be different..

  • I feel like a tool as I forgot to say thanks for the info. The information provided helped prevent the dealer from monkeying around with the pricing.

    So, thanks!
