  • Hello,

    I’m looking to buy a new 528i and after talking to a Texas dealer he gave me a quote for a 2013 528i with Premium, Driver Assistance, Technology, Heated Front Seats, Multi-contour Seats, and Rear-seat entertainment:

    msrp - $59,695.00
    sale - $57,000.00
    upfront - $4,500.00 including first month payment
    monthly - $750.00
    residual - 57%
    MF - 0.00175
    15k miles a year
    42 months

    Do you think this is a good deal? I would really appreciate any comments you may have.
  • Hi, Car Man.

    I want to lease a 2013 bmw 550 in the next few weeks. What would the buy rate from BMWFS be on a car if I am going to lease with 10000 miles/year and I am going to max out on the MSD option?

    Thanks!

    Folks,

    Appreciate any advice you can provide this newbie with regarding the following scenario.

    I am new to BMW and new to luxury cars in general. Working hard and finally willing to pony up some dough for a new luxury car. Test drove the 535ix and, must say, was impressed:

    Car has an MSRP of $61470. The dealer offered to price it for a sale at approximately $1000 over invoice. When I discussed the possibility of leasing, the discount from MSRP "dropped" to 59,000 with a cash cap reduction of $1160. On my lease sheet, the adjusted cap cost is ~$57000.

    I am being offered a money factor of .00155, residual value of 56% and 15,000 with overage at .15 per mile. I am being asked to put $2500 down and there are registration and doc fees of $503. A rebate is listed at $2000 (not sure where it applies...but I think it works its way into the adjusted cap cost).

    Can anyone tell me if this is a reasonable deal and/or what areas I should negotiate to make this a better deal? Final payment works out to 721 per month before taxes.

    Many thanks in advance for any assistance. Happy to provide additional info, if needed.

  • Hi derekla. BMW Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 BMW 550i Sedan with 10,000 miles per year are .00125 and 58% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier.

    BMW is currently providing a $2,000 Holiday Credit on leases of this car.

  • Hi GM. A selling price of $1,000 over invoice minus the $2,000 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of this car is a decent deal on this car. The money factor that you were quoted is a little high though. BMW FS' buy rate for this model is currently .00125 for consumers who qualify for its top credit tier. Make sure that the dealer uses this factor to calculate your car's payment.

  • Hello
    I am interested in 535xi lease. The dealer has a 2012 model which he may price at or below invoice.
    Could you give me the money factor & residual value for 12000 miles/yr for 36 months?
    Could you also give me a approximate target price ?

    Thanks
  • I am interested in 2012 535xi lease. What are the incentives available ? I am completing a Mercedes lease currently.

    Thanks

    Hi Carman

    Can you let me know what Nov's rates are for a 36 month 15K year lease on a 2013 535 xDrive?

    Did it change from last months 59%/.00135 ?

    Thank you!!!!
  • Hi Car Man,

    I would appreciate if you could share the money factor and residual values for 12k/15k miles lease. Also, do you know if BMW runs any other specials in addition to $1,000 Holiday Credit and $750 Loyalty Cash?

    As always, thanks a lot!

    Could you please share the money factor and residual values for 36 month 15k miles lease on a 2013 550i sedan? Do you also have information o any current promotions, specials or incentives?

    Thanks!
  • ooati,
    That'd most likely be .00125 and 55% with a $2,000 holiday credit available (through the beginning of January, I think), per Car_man's previous response to derekia.

    Car_man,
    Do you, by chance, have the 39-month, 12k/year figures for that same model?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your response but I'll wait for car_man to reply.
  • Hi zztop40. BMW Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 535xi Sedan with 12,000 miles per year are .00135 and 56% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    Make sure to take advantage of the $3,500 in dealer cash that dealers were paid out on this car in your negotiations. If I was going to lease one now, I would want to get it for thousands below invoice...say $2,500 to $3,000 under. That's just me, but you get the idea.

  • Hi jddssc121. BMW Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 535i xDrive Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00125 and 58% for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    There is $2,000 holiday cash available on this car in November that was not there in October. Make sure to take it into account during your negotiations.

  • Hey nc_driver1. BMW Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2013 528i Sedan with 15,000 miles per year are .00130 and 55%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    The residual value for a lease with only 12,000 miles per year would be 2% higher.

    You are correct about the $1,000 holiday bonus and $750 loyalty cash. Other than a tiny bit of back-end money that's about all that's available on this car right now.

  • Hey ihitcows. The 36- and 39-month money factors are exactly the same, but the 39-month residual values are 2% lower.

  • Thanks Car Man. Got my 2013 550 at invoice less 3250 in rebates and buy rate on the financing terms. Salesman "accidentally" used October rather than November money factor, which would've cost me an extra grand over life of lease, but I caught him.

    Thanks for all this info, Carman. Can you clarify the rebate/support available on 2013 528 or 535 right now? I have a post card from BMW financial saying that I can get a $3,500 holiday credit, but it does not specify what model it applies to. Then I assume there is still the $750 support for returning BMWFS customers? I'm now reading in this thread about some $1,000 holiday credit?

    What rebates/support can I combine on a lease for a 2013 528 or 535?

    Also, can you confirm that November MF for 2013 528/535 is .0013? Was hoping it was still .00125, but looks like it bumped up a bit. Residual for 10K/36 mo lease is still 60%?

    Thanks again.

    I don't see any forum activity for the ActiveHybrid 5 series. Can you provide details on what the Nov residual and mf are?

    thanks
  • Dear Car_man,
    would you please check November rates for 2013 550ix. Both 36 and 39 months with 12,000 miles.

    Thank you very much.
  • I feel totally clueless trying to understand your responses so I'm definitely scared about getting ripped off by a dealer. I live in zip 19803.

    First, I am looking for lease in the 5-600 range with no money down. I am not buying the car at the end of the lease. I have been looking at activehybrid 5 or a 528ix. Is this doable and how much should I expect to pay from a dealer. I currently own a bmw 750li and am leasing a 128i. What would you recommend?

    Second, I am looking for a lease in the 3-400 range with no money down. I am not buying the car at the end of the lease. I have been looking at 128i convertable, xdrive 28i and z428i. Is this doable and/or how much should I expect to pay from a dealer. What would you recommend?

    Thanks for your help in advance!
  • Hi Carman,

    I have been following your posts for 6 series for sometime. I decided to stick to 5 series for versatility (i.e.-Rear folding seats, spacious back seating) Thank you for sharing all your knowledge and helping everyone save money.

    I ordered a 2013 M5 a week ago. Since the car is being built to order, the dealership told me that they can't really give any discounts of any sorts. My friend's dad who owns a dealership up in San Francisco told me average markup is 18%. For a MSRP at $104K, that certainly gives a lot of wiggle room.

    My question to you Car_man is what discounts/rebates would you go for on a MSRP of $104K? I want to be far, I don't want to get the car for free, but I also don't want to be the guy who could have got $5K off and didn't. Thank you in advance for your help!
  • Hello. I leased a 2012 528i in February of this year for 36 months. So I have about 2 years and 2 months left on my lease. Long story short, I've ran into some financial burdens and I'm looking to downgrade my car from a 5 series to a 3 series to make my monthly payments more affordable. I am wondering if anyone knows my options for downgrading while still in a lease and if it's even possible. Also, I thought about maybe buying my car and extending to 5 or 6 years which will make the payments cheaper. Is that a possibility?? Thanks for any help!!

    Thanks!
  • Morning. I am interested in leasing a 528i with navi and heated seats. Looking for 36 mo and 12K miles/year. Can you please share December incentive amounts/holiday cash and loyalty money. Also, what is the lease money factor and Residual for December?
