  • 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!!

    Hi Car_Man,

    I am looking to lease a 535i 36 or 39 months, 10k miles a year. What's the current MF and residuals and what incentives are there?

    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?

    Is December a good time to lease a car? Is BMW doing an big savings deals?

    Big thanks for your help!!
  • Car_man,

    What is the December money factors and residual for a 2013 535i

    36 months / 15,000 miles per year
    or
    30 months / 20,000 miles per year

    thank you

    The only feasible solution in your situation is to have someone take your lease over. There are two sites that I know about - swapalease and leasetrader.
    The people there expect great deals but if you monthly payment is relatively low you should be able to find buyers.

    I need to know what I should pay for a 2013 BMW 535I MSRP $60,670. Sign & drive (first mo & fee & dmv fee) apx $1900. I got a phone quote of $706/ 39mos 10K. I think it should be around $635 range. I know that there is a $2K holiday rebate. Also, I was told that the 535I has a better deal than the 528I w/ the same options.
  • You're welcome derekla. Great job at negotiating. Enjoy your new ride!

  • Hi fyost. There's $1,000 bonus cash on the 2013 528i and $2,000 on the 2013 535i. The $750 loyalty cash is indeed still there.

    The money factor for the '13 528i is .00130. The money factor for the '13 535i is .00125. The residuals for 36 / 10 are 58% for the 528i and 60% for the 535i.

  • You're very welcome omgraj. I'm not surprised that the dealership isn't all that interested in giving you a discount on an ordered M5. That's a pretty expensive car that they probably wouldn't be able to move very quickly if for some reason your deal fell apart before you took delivery. There's definitely wiggle room in this car's price, but if you're not willing to shop around and take something out of inventory your ability to get at it may be somewhat limited.

    As far as this car's pricing goes, a base without any options M5 Sedan has a spread of $8,000 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. On top of that there's a $2,000 holiday cash incentive available on this car right now, giving you a minimum of $10,000 to play with in your negotiations.

    I personally would want a significant discount on this car, but again it may be difficult to get one on an ordered vehicle. If you haven't officially placed your order yet, you may want to consider shopping around to see if another dealer would be more reasonable on the price.
