2013 and earlier BMW X5 Lease Questions



  • sevygsevyg Posts: 3
    i just received a lease quote:
    MSRP: 61,875
    Selling car for $56k (inlcudes the $1730 rebate)
    4700 out of pocket
    15k miles/year
    36 months
    $753 with tax/month
    My Credit rating is over 800

    any thoughts on the price...does that seem like a good deal....
  • What is the residual value at the end of the lease? That is needed in order to figure out the payment.
  • I also need your zip code to figure in tax.
  • sevygsevyg Posts: 3
    im not sure of the residual...asked the dealer to provide money factor and residual.

    08820 is zip code.

    lets assume the residual is 48 and one at 52...seesm that people say this is the residual. MF .00195
  • The purchase price and money factor are excellent. I don't think you could get a better deal than that if you were the owner's brother. There is no way the residual would be $48K, that it way too high. I think a realistic figure to buy the car at the end would be somewhere around $37K, which would make the payment around $780. Without exact figures, you cannot calculate it. The numbers are not just pulled out of the air. You're getting a really good deal. That salesperson deserves a $100 tip!

    Hi sevyg

    The selling price is fair but not great, given that there is at least 8K markup in the car and you are leasing which dealer/BMW make additional at least $7000 more on the car. See bellow breakdown.

    Here is the facts that is available online and you can judge for yourself,
    for X5 3.5 premium with no extra option, there is

    1- $1730 credit for navigation
    2- $1000 loyalty or if you take the team America test drive
    3- Dealer is including $500 on top of invoice regional Marketing add fee, (which I think is B S, because you expect us to pay for Dealer Water and Cable bills also. Why BMW dealers don't be start forward with your customers)
    4- At lease $1270 hold back to dealer
    5- Invoice $52,160 including destination and marketing fee $500
    6- There is X dollar rebate incentive to dealers based on the number of BMW cars they sell every month
    7- for MF .00195 there is more than $6200 in interest profit for Dealer and BMW Financials

    So 1730+1000+500+1270+3915(difference between invoice and X5 premium MSRP)=$8415 is the total markup on the basic 3.5 premium not inducing interest form lease and all other lease fees markups,

    That is 15% profit not including the Volume Rebate to dealer.

    $8415 +6200 Interest on lease+750 acquisition fee+200 Doc fee+ 350 Disposition Fee= $15,915 total profit on your deal if you got the X5 Premium only, for added options the profit is more

    Hi omszz, nice car and options,

    This is a deal that all dealers will give anyone without any negotiation, call any dealer and see. I do not see the savings you got. Check the forum postings and see for yourself. Typically people on this forum ask questions before dealing and will post any interesting facts or good deals which I do not see in your posting.

    how do you know about the dealer holdback, is that published used to see what each car had as an allowance from the manufacturer for advertising, time on lot, etc...but i cant find that anymore
  • ab10000ab10000 Posts: 127
    Yes the dealer holdback is available online in many sites
    Check this one

    Im in Seattle too, what dealer did you buy your X5 at?

    Hi kingcobra,

    BMW Northwest in Fife - I recommend working with their "internet manager". BMW Seattle was willing to match the same deal, but didn't have a good build slot. BMW Bellevue couldn't match.

    Note - there is now an $1000 credit on the X5 xDrive50i, so I'll be getting that in addition to the terms listed above, so I'll be paying $1k less down for the same monthly payment.

    I haven't seen the Nov rates/residual yet, not sure if they got better or worse?
  • Hey Jay. BMW Financial Services' November buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 X5 50i with 10,000 miles per year are .00195 and 62%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    The money factor would be .00030 lower for loyal customers.

    When negotiating your deal on this truck, make sure to take advantage of the $1,000 cash incentive that is currently available on leases of it through BMW FS.

    Hello everyone! We used Amex's Auto Purchasing Program and got a dealer quote of $60,940 on a BMW X5 35i Premium with an MSRP of 65,176. First, is this a good price, and second, what would be a good lease rate? Looking for residual value and money factor on that car for a 36 month lease and 12000 miles/year . Thanks!

    You need to get the $1730 option credit and $1000 if you finance with BMW. Your current deal is not pretty.
  • I got same for $52505, no out of pocket for $739/month
  • Your monthly payment is about right for the price your got. If your MSRP is same as mine - $60950, then you knock off $8.5K, sounds like an incredible bargain.
