    Fantastic, did you buy or lease? How do you know MACO is $480?

    After placing the order for 2013 328i, i recently received an email from my dealer stating that they are having a problem ordering because the order is now a 2014 and the system is only giving them option for wood instead of aluminum. (I ordered the aluminum on the base 328i)

    Looking up the specs online for 2014, they have removed the aluminum trim from base 328i and now walnut wood is standard with a base MSRP price increase of $250 and a couple of added features. Do you guys think they;ll give me the 2014 without asking for anymore money ?

    I am really hoping they do because of the updated NAV which is priced the same as before.

    Also one more question for all the 328i owners, the specs state:

    For 328i; Power-adjustable folding exterior mirrors with automatic-dimming function

    For 320i; Power-adjustable, manually folding exterior mirrors

    Does this mean all 328s have power folding standard by pressing the button right next the mirror adjustments ?

  • Can someone provide the residual/MF on 36mo 15K lease on 2013 328i xDrive?

    Is your statement really true?

    I put about 15-20K per year traveling and want to get a 2013 320xi w/ cold weather package and AWD. I am in the tri-states/northeast area.

    Would it be better if I leased or bought? I am not so great with math and would definitely like some input from all the wise folk on here!!

    When did you order the car? They stopped building 2013 328 series sometime in June I think. The dealer misled you if they told you they could order the car after June.
  • Hi,

    I'm hoping whether someone could help me by informing me if this is a good deal or not. I'll try to supply all the numbers I know (some key figs might be missing).

    2013 320 X Drive
    Imperial Blue
    Beige Dakota Leather
    Wood grain int
    Premium Pkg
    Heated seats
    MSRP: $43,825

    Total down $2700 (w/$1k driving event + turn key; about $2k represents cap cost)
    10k miles/yr (I don't drive much)
    Taxes are at 9%

    I don't have the exact numbers on residual. I heard they went down 4 points last month, only to get better by a point this month. I'm thinking it's 60%.

    What Money Factor are they quoting you? Also what is the sale price of the X3?

    What's a good price for a 2013 320x drive w/ cold weather and lights package? Looking to lease for 36mos with 15K miles per year in the NJ/NY area. I currently have a mercedes, but its lease won't be up till Nov/Dec. Will a BMW dealer take the mercedes early? Thanks/

    My lease is up on my 2011 328i Coupe. I paid 496/mo for 36 mo. Cap cost was $38356. Residual Value is $26260. Returning car with only 9k miles and normal wear and tear.

    Interested in leasing a 2013 328i Sedan. Black, moonroof, no navigation.

    They quoted:

    MSRP: $38825
    Residual: $24848
    Money factor .000121
    O down
    $420 mo incl tax for 36 mo
    10k mileage yr

    Is this a good deal? I need to make a decision today!

  • After a week of back and forth, here is the deal on the table.

    36mo / 12k year
    MSRP 48,425
    Sales Price - 42,850 (includes $2,500 of incentives)
    Money factor - .00071 (.0012 base - 7 MSDs)
    Monthly $446

    1/2 of me says there is still money on the table and 1/2 of me says we both made out. One concern is seeing a bigger incentive come up around Labor Day as more 2014s hit the lots.

    I talked them down to:

    2013 328i Black Sedan - Moonroof, basic interior, leather etc...

    No money down

    390 mo for 36 mos

    10k mileage yr

    Did I do ok?

    Does the $446 include sales tax? What's the payment before tax?
  • $446 includes tax. Taxes are paid upfront in NJ.
  • With the model just hitting dealerships, has anyone had any purchase or leasing experience with the 2014 3-Series GT?
  • joelk01joelk01 Posts: 39
    I pay taxes on my lease in NJ each month. I didn't pay them upfront.

    Generally, in NJ, taxes on leases are paid upfront. As in most states that have similar rules, that amount can be rolled into your CAP cost, which effectively spreads it out over your monthly payments..

    i have lease offer for a 2013 328xi MSRP 45,645$. I think the gave the sale price as 43700$ with 2500$ in rebates including a 1000$ graduate discount.

    I also took tire insurance for 1300$ for 3 years.

    The dealer is quoting : 3500$ down.
    459$ a month
    and 3 payments of 428 on my cc.
    Residual is : 28720$.
    Rent charge is 3200$.

    Is this a fair deal . should i take it .
  • flightnurseflightnurse at 35K feetPosts: 1,523
    In regards to your number they are way off..

    The 2500 in rebates and 1000 for grad discounts how are they being applied.

    What is the money factor? What is the residual percentage they are quoting you?

    so the dealer is giving you $3500 in discounts, how is that being applied? Plus they want $3500 out of pocket? What insurance are they getting you to buy? How long is this lease for and how many miles a year?

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if I can get some help from this amazing forum. I'm looking to buy 320 w/ heated front seats, Nav, Power front seats - which config quoted me $37670. I'm a grad student, and was hoping to get the lowest possible price. A lot of you have mentioned rebates and incentives - is this something that can be applied to everyone? or is it something that is only available to those who have participated in events? Can I also ask the dealer to apply these incentives/rebates? Also, I'm planning to pay in full at signing - would this affect the price of the vehicle at all? Also, anybody know a good dealer in the Bay Area? Thanks for all the help in advance.

    Does anyone have any experience with this? I have been told by the dealer that retired loaners qualify for new vehicle leasing programs (since they have never been titled). I am looking at a 328i sport line. However, the dealer is marking up the MF from .00121 to .00141 and not accepting the $1,000 build out incentive or $1,000 ultimate drive incentive. Is this to be expected? Or should I be fighting for the lower MF and one or both of the credits? Here is the current offer:

    2013 328i Sport Line (fairly well optioned)
    MSRP - $47,595
    $910.95 mileage adjustment (has 6,600 miles on it)
    Selling Price - $40,100
    Residual - 28,122 61%
    36 months/15k miles
    4,000 down (includes paying 1,050 in fees out of pocket)
    Payment of $353, but I think it can still be better.
    Oh, and we are in Oregon, so no tax.

    Any advice is appreciated.
