2013 and earlier BMW 3-Series Prices Paid and Buying Experience



  • justangjustang Posts: 3
    Just picked up a new 328i X-drive. With the new incentives and the 2012s now at the dealers it seems like time for a good deal on the 2011. MSRP was $41, 215. Sales price was $33,429 plus taxes, plates, etc. In addition the 0.9% financing and first two payments free made it an easy call. Only a few grand more than the used 2009 I was considering. Works for me.

    Congrats on your new ride. Can you post the exact options that are on your new 328xi? Did you have a trade-in? Thanks in advance for your help!

  • Hey Car Man,

    I'm in Bay Area and I'm looking forward to lease a 328i convertible for 32 months. A couple of questions:
    1 - Are there any incentives now? On BMW official website I saw there is a 1000 lease credit.
    2 - What's the reasonable residue value & MF for this lease?

  • Guys,
    looking for advice - recently drove a friends modded 2009 335i and loved it so am itching to buy one. Went to test drive a 2009 at a dealership in LA which had less than 30k miles on it, sports package, premium package and navi etc. Cost around 34k. The dealer apparently had a bunch of new 2011 335is left and offered one for 45k (includes cold weather package,premium package, navi, sports package).

    I'm not sure how much these cars depreciate but i'm wondering if the 45k is a good offer considering 2012s are out - I'm ok with a 2009 model as well however wanted to check if you guys think this is a deal worth considering.

  • I'm looking for a similar automobile, but have been quoted a considerably higher figure from my local BMW dealer (almost $38k). The name of your dealer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    1st you have to post the MSRP of the car
    Next find out what the selling price is
    Next find out what the money factor (or lease rate) they are charging you is

    MTV...what NYC said. If you haven't taken delivery yet, let us know what the MSRP and the actual purchase price is. Then, let us know the tax, and trade info (if any). Then ask them for the money factor.

    We'll be able to better help once we have that info.

    Just reporting offer from BMW dealer in SW FL- drove car today, much nicer than I had expected. Dealer offered 3% off MSRP, I guess not bad for a brand new model. That price, $52884, equates to a $684/month lease, plus tax for 36 mo, 10K/yr miles. MF = .00195 and residual = 65%. I do not know of any available incentives for this model but think the residual makes up for a lot. Up to 7 security deposits can be made, each one reduces MF by .00007.

    What's a good lease price for 2012 328i priced out at $49k with out of pocket of $2500 - 10k miles per month?
  • sr8474sr8474 Posts: 6
    Looking at a lease on a 2011 328xi, MSRP of $42815. What is the MF and residual for a 30 month lease?

    I'm located in VA and the dealer has an advertised $479 administrative fee and the tax rate is 3.5%. What payment should I expect to negotiate if I pay nothing down compared to paying $2500 down.

    Thanks for your help.

    I was looking at a 2012 328i. Anyone know much off list are dealers discounting these cars? I got one offer of $1600 off list, before we talked lease/sale details. This was about 3% off MSRP for the car I was looking at.

    I like to get pricing before talking lease or purchase. Anyone out there have a 2012 sales experience yet? (Naples, FL)
