    Could you tell us which dealer or at least PM me the dealer as I am trying to convince Concord BMW (California) to do a similar deal.
  • Hey, go to Concord and ask for Danny, say Seva with white 528iM-sport sent you. See what he can do for you. Good Luck!

    Hi Car Man,

    I'm was just offered the following deal in Norther VA. 535ix with Premium Package, Technology Package, Cold Weather Package, Sports Package, Sirius, Sports Automatic Trans, and BMW Apps with a sticker of $66,245 and a sell price of $57,807. The lease price they gave me for 36mo and 12,000 miles was $795 for Tier 1 credit. But the number don't add up to me. The sales man told me he was using .00175 instead of .00145 for the money factor and the residual value is 59%. The monthly lease payment I come up with is much cheaper than what they have.

    Could you tell me what the correct lease payment should be along with the money factor and residual value. Also all taxes are paid up front.

    Thanks in advance Car Man

    I was wondering if someone could double check the math presented here, I have used edmunds lease calculator and it shows payment which is much higher than stated by insidecarbuy. Is there anyone who could verify these numbers, if so what online lease calculator do you use. thank you.
  • Hi Audi,

    I just leased a similar car w/sports package and pull ahead of current 535xi for 3 months ($600x3), MRSP was $62,000 with total $5000 down that includes everything tax, and destination charge, and $800 damages to the last car, my monthly lease is $700 including tax, i also had a $500 credit by downloading app called ultimatedrive and request a test drive thru the app. Also this was my fourth BMW lease,2012 535xi black. Good luck.
  • I just got this same car from VOB (sticker also of 66245) for 730/mo with 5k down (that's with BMW Loyalty, USAA Insurance and 500 dollars from ultimatebmwapp.) You can sub the USAA for the USA Drive 1k discount. I probably could have gotten to 715 but honestly the guys were great there and I was in and out in an hour. Michael Zheng is the guy if you go.)
  • Car_Man could you please post August rates if they are available. For both 2012 and 2013 models.
    Thanks
  • Would you please post sale price of the car and residual number, number of months is the lease and miles/yr. thanks in advance.
  • Was offered 680/monthly payment with 3K drive off(out the pocket) on 535xi w/ Premium, Technology and Cold for 36 months lease with 15Kmiles/year. I still think its too much profit for the dealer. Can someone please explain how this lease posted here by someone would be possible.

    MSRP - $56,575
    Invoice - $52,614
    Loyalty - $750
    Option Allowance $1,500
    BMW USA Drive Event $1,000
    Behind Invoice - $,1500

    Selling price - $47,864

    Money Factor .00145
    Residual for 12,000 miles 58%

    Out of pocket total - $2,937.11
    Bank Fee - $725

    Numbers do not add up assuming cap cost of the car $47,864.

    Hi Carman,

    If 2012 535i with premium Package and Tech Package;MSRP is around 57500;but the sale price is around 52500, plus i have my old car trade in with value of 7500;. The lease will be 36 month, with 12k miles/year. I believe the residual is 0.58 and the Money Factor should be 0.0018;with down payment of 2500, according to your calculation, would you please kindly give me the suggestion what the monthly payment will be? Thanks in advance.

    Hi. I need some advice/tips from Car Man or anyone else that has gone through this. My 2010 535i lease is set to expire at the end of August. I really like the car and am thinking of purchasing it. From what I understand, you can either purchase the car through BMW Financial Services or through your dealer. In my conversations with BMW FS, they tell me that the price is the residual value and that there is no negotiating. Is this true?

    Also, from what I understand, if you buy through the dealer, you can get better financing options and the vehicle is purchased as a CPO.

    Has anyone been through this process? Can you negotiate the purchase price with BMW FS, the dealer, both?

    Any tips or advice is much appreciated. Thanks.

    Hi audi42. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 535xi with 12,000 miles per year are .00145 and 56%, respectively.

    Using these numbers, an MSRP of $66,245 and a selling price of $57,807, I estimate that this car would have a zero down, pre-tax monthly payment of around $713.

    Hi htmymi. I see that you are considering using $7,500 in equity from your trade as a down payment on your lease. There's nothing wrong with trading in your current car when leasing a new one, it certainly is convenient. However, you really should have you cut you a check for any equity that you have in your trade rather than using the proceeds from it as a capitalized cost reduction for your new lease. Consumers who make large down payments on leased vehicles risk losing part or all of the money that they put down if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered.

    Also, the money factor that you were quoted is too high. BMW FS' current buy rate for consumers who have decent credit is only .00145. If your credit is in good shape make sure to insist that the dealer use this factor to calculate your payment.

    According to my calculations, if you were to lease a 2012 535i that has an MSRP of $57,500 and a selling price of $52,500 through BMW Financial Services right now fort 36 months with 15,000 miles per year, its zero down, pre-tax monthly payment would be around $687.

    Keep in mind that BMW is kicking back dealers a $3,500 cash incentive on this car. With help from that cash I have a feeling that you may be able to negotiate a lower selling price.

    Hi waid10. Theoretically what you were told is correct. However I have seen banks that will negotiate the lease-end purchase prices of vehicles. Whether BMW is one of them I can't say because I've never personally dealt with them before.

    I personally would be hesitant to purchase a BMW at lease-end, just because BMW FS is notorious for overestimating vehicles' residual values. Essentially BMW artificially inflates vehicles' residuals to hide lease support. This is great for people who lease because it provides them with lower than normal monthly payments. However, inflated residual values would not be good for people who want to buy their vehicles at lease-end.

    Make sure to compare your car's purchase price to what you would have to pay for one on the open market right now. Your saving grace may be the fact that used vehicle values are still fairly high right now.

    You should be able to have the dealer certify your vehicle so that you can take advantage of the extended warranty and special financing offers. That's probably the way to go.

    Hi car_man, I have a 2009 335i due to return in the next few weeks, I am looking to get a 2012 535i with premium, bmw app. msrp at $55645, and invoice of $51245. BMW have 3500 for option allowance, and 750 loyalty rebate. when I negotiate the price should I add $500 to the invoice then deduct 4250 for total rebate which bring me to a selling price of $47495.

    I also got quote from dealer and they told me the 3500 option allowance does not apply to every 535i.

    I calculated my monthly payment with 2500 down, first month pay and 725 aquisition fee 56% residual, 0.00145mf 12000k/yr to be about $538 include ca tax, do you think this is doable?
  • Have you used edmunds lease calculator, when i input your numbers i get different numbers. what lease calculator do you use. google edmunds lease calculator. have you received any numbers from dealers. thank you.

    Hi, I have always purchased my cars and new to leasing. For a change, I am planning to lease a 2012 BMW 528 XI with 12K/36 mos. I live in Aurora, IL and was wondering if someone could tell me what would be a good deal.

    MSRP: 56,245 (prem/cold weather pkg, navigation)

    I would like to know what would be a good invoice price, money factor and residual value for this car. And of course, the lease payment per month. Appreciate your help.

    I'd appreciate someone letting me know if I'm getting a good deal. I'm currently looking at a 2012 535XI (Space Gray, Nav, Premium, Sport) that MSRP's at $65,725. Right now the dealer is at $690 a month (including NY sales tax) for 36 months 12k/year with 3,500 out of pocket including all taxes and fees. I appreciate your help

    I am a current BMW FS customer; my present lease expires in December. I asked BMW dealer for a quote on a 2013 535 xDrive; with navigation and sirius; 36 months at 12K miles/year. The numbers I got back were $820/mo (including 9% sales tax) with $2680 due at signing. Is this a good deal or should I negotiate more? I am not sure if this takes into account the loyalty discounts and/or the current free options offering.

    Also, how competitive will local BMW dealers be with one another? And, finally, the dealer mentioned potentially ending my present lease early --assuming no financial penalties on this, are there any other downsides?

    thanks!
  • gja2gja2 Posts: 2
    looks like a good deal to me --which dealer are you working with? I had a Philly dealer offer me $800/per month (including state taxes) for a similar case with about $2700 total out of pocket; 36 months/36,000 miles
  • im looking at a 535xi sport package tech package winter pack bmw app prem pack MRSP is 65700. I told the dealer 5k down for it and he said. 36mnths/36k miles for $645 a month. is that a good deal?
  • Can any one provide me with details of recent lease deals including discount off of list, MF and Residual numbers that have been used recently?

    That's exactly how I would calculate my offer, eztzone.

    What you were told is only somewhat correct. Theoretically there could be a few 535i models out there that a dealer didn't make eligible for the $3,500 cash incentive, but I doubt that there are many. Any smart dealer would have made sure that any remaining 2012 535i Sedans that they have in inventory are eligible for this cash.

    I think that $500 over invoice minus incentives plus the use of the buy rate lease money factor is indeed achievable.

    Hi sshenoy. Since you are new to leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles on the subject that are available here at Edmunds.com: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    In short, the easiest way to get a good deal on a leased vehicle is to shop around for the lowest possible selling price and then have the dealer that you decide to go with calculate your vehicle's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor.

    If I was in the market for this car right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of around $500 over invoice minus the $2,500 dealer cash that is available on it. Of course, if you are in an area that doesn't have much competition you may have to pay a little more than this.

    BMW Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 528xi Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00145 and 58%, respectively.
