    Thanks, as always. Someone somewhere else mentioned the buy rate had dropped to .0012, so it is good to know the correct answer.

    Hi there. Would you share the March residuals and MF for a 228i, 10k & 12k/36 mos. Any incentives, loyalty, or guidance on discounts from MSRP? I know I will be ordering one with a manual if that impacts anything. Thanks!

    .00130 MF and 62% residual for 12K/yr. 63% for 10K/yr. No apparent incentives (other than the great residual).

    No idea on discounts, other than "not much".

    Im new to leasing, and not sure what factors effect money factor. IM looking at a 2014 M235 on a 2 yr lease with 15k per year mileage. Can someone give me an idea of money factor? My credit should be top tier (over 750)

    Base MF for M235i is .00130 and residual is 66% for 24 months. Dealer can (and often will) mark up the MF for more profit. Multiple security deposits can be used to reduce the MF.

    MF stays the same; residual drops to 60%

    Can't tell without knowing the selling price and the MF, either before or after the MSD's.

    Does any of the $3450 include cap cost reduction?

    Is it possible to get residual/MF for a 228i 36mo./15k. Any incentives? Thanks

    .00130 and 60% for 36/15. No incentives that I see, other than a program to pull-ahead an existing BMW lease.

    Hi Michael. The MF is .0013 Selling price is $47,300. I do not know about the cost cap reduction. What is cost cap? Thank you.

    That is the base MF - if you are putting down 7 MSDs, that should reduce the MF to .00081.

    The capitalized cost is the net selling price of the car. A cap cost reduction is similar to a down payment - but, in a lease, it is not something you want to do. If the car is stolen or totaled, you are out that money. Security deposits, on the other hand, are returned to you at the end of the lease.

    The May lease offer from BMW for the M235i w/ Premium Package is $449/month (36mo./10k) with $3,000 down payment (MSRP $46,325). What should I expect the monthly payments to be with a MSRP of $44,575 (no Premium Package) and 36mo./10k if I don't want to put any money down? Thanks.

    Generally, you can take the down payment and divide it by the lease term to get the additional payment - in this case, $3000/36 = $83/mo. Or, $532/mo.

    Hi Michaell, thank you for your reply. Since the lease offer MSRP is $1,750 higher than the configuration I'd want, what would the expected payments be in that case? Around $500/mo?

    Give or take, yeah, $500/mo should be achievable.

    You didn't mention the lease term, so I'll assume 36 months.

    228i - .00130 MF and 60% for 15K miles. Add 2% for 12K.

    Are there shorter lease terms available? If so, can you please post residuals and MFs accordingly? I'm looking for 10K miles per year.
