    You're welcome sweetthunder. The dealer is marking up your vehicle's acquisition fee by $200. BMW FS' base fee is only $725. Having said that is the acquisition fee is included in what I believed was a selling price of $1,000 over invoice, it puts your car's actual price much closer to invoice so overall this is a very good deal.

    Hi Car Man

    Could you share the May 2012 lease rates for a Z4 sDrive 28i? Do you know of any lease incentives being offered as well? Is the $1000 lease incentive still being offered on the Z4?

    Thanks!
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi ahydrie. BMW actually increased its cash incentive on the 2012 Z4 to $2,500 this month. Not to shabby.

    BMW FS' May buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Z4 sDrive 28i with 15,000 miles per year are .00190 and 63%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    Hello Carman -

    Hope all is well. What is the MF and residuals on the Z4 for June - on both the 28 and 35 models. Was thinking 10 miles and 36 month lease.

    thank you!
  • ZoneMobJZoneMobJ Posts: 13
    Is there still a $2500 cash incentive for June (or any at all)?

    thanks!
  • ZoneMobJZoneMobJ Posts: 13
    Is this a good deal?

    Z4 - 12K miles per year
    MSRP incl. 875 for destination - $56,925
    MF: 0.0019
    Residual: 65%
    Selling Price (incl. 2500 BMW incentive): $51,825
    Total Amount down towards 1st month, acquisition etc.: $2000
    Lease is 628.66 incl tax (CA)

    According to my calculations this is about $35 dollars too high - I feel it should be around $595.

    Please let me know what you think.

    Thank you

    Hi sweetthunder and carman. I know it's June already, and you got this deal in March.

    CarMan, could sweetthunder's deal be even better, provided this month's incentives, etc?

    And sweetthunder, I'm looking at exactly the same car, a fully-loaded 2.8 in white with red leather. So far, the inventory for this is looking slim, but I was hoping you'd be willing to share your deal numbers, as it seems to be a great price and lease arrangement.

    Thank you in advance. Happy to return the favor with mine, for the use of other Z4 enthusiasts and potential shoppers.

    All is very well, thanks ZoneMobJ.

    BMW Financial Services' June buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36-month lease of a 2012 Z4 28i with 10,000 miles per year are .00190 and 66%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a Z4 35i are interestingly exactly the same.

    When negotiating your deal on either of these cars, make sure to take advantage of the $2,500 cash incentive that is currently available on them.

    Yes, ZoneMobJ, the $2,500 is indeed still available in June.

    Hi delfer. While the cash incentive on the 2012 Z4 is $1,500 higher in June than it was back in March, its residual values are 2% lower as well. This will offset much of the difference. All things considered, this car's current lease program is slightly better than the March program was.

    Mr CarMan, just for reference, how was my deal? Could it have been better? I tried to do solid research

  • lilmsylilmsy Posts: 1
    Is this a good deal for a 2012 z4 28 lease?

    The MSRP is $60695. Total cap cost under the assumption below of the absolute minimum due at signing is $61591.01 including all sales taxes and fees. There are no additional lease costs other than the Acquisition fee of $925. The residual value for 36 months at 10K miles/year is 66%, which is incredibly high, and the money factor is .00245.

    payment of $847 with $1103 due at signing.
    discounted the Z4 $3800 for you
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hey delfer. The car that you leased probably has a spread of just under $5,000 between its MSRP and dealer invoice price. Plus in June there was a $2,500 cash incentive on it. That gave you a little under $7,500 to work with. The $7,200 discount that you were given on this car looks very attractive to me. It's pretty darn close to invoice minus incentives. The bank fe wasn't marked up either. If the dealer used BMW FS' buy rate lease money factor of .00190 to calculate your payment then I'd say that this is an excellent deal.

    Enjoy your new ride :shades: !

    Hi lilmsy. What is this car's selling price, pre-fees? That is an important number to know because it will show us how much of a dealer discount you are being given.

    Even without this number, there's some aspects of this deal that I do not like. The dealer is marking up both this car's acquisition fee ($725 base) and money factor (.00190 buy rate) in an effort to add additional back-end profit to your deal. If I was in the market for a Z4, I personally would insist that the dealer did not mark up either of these items.

    Ahhh, wait I see that you were given a $3,800 discount on the car. Is the dealer subtracting the $2,500 cash incentive that BMW is providing on it from that or does it already include it? If not then you definitely can do better than that.

  • I'm in contact with a CA dealer (Pacific BMW in Glendale) on a 2013 Z4 28i lease. He's saying that in order to do the lease offer advertised on BMWUSA.com, it requires a cap reduction and can't be baked into the monthly payments. Is this correct? I've never encountered a situation on an advertised lease where the advertised cap reduction couldn't be rolled into the payments in order to reduce the drive-off
  • Hey,I'm looking to lease a new 2013 Z4 35is drive and I would like to know what are some monthly prices that I should expect?

    I would like a 12-15k 36

  • Hey Car man. I am looking for a 2013 sdrive 28i roadster for a 36 month lease with Tech package features (Blue tooth, nav, voice control also parking assistance) in LA. Can you tell me about what kind of payments (down/monthly) I should expect if leasing in month of May? Do you expect any Memorial day discounts for lease?
  • CarMan@EdmundsCarMan@Edmunds Posts: 38,515
    Hi culverguy. BMW's current lease program is only scheduled to run through April 30th. We won't know what the May program will be like until it is officially announced on 5/1. I can work up a payment for you using the April program if you provide me with this car's MSRP and dealer invoice price for now if you want.

    Any word on the MF and residuals for the Z4 which I believe is now being designated as the 2014 model but ordering is now open? I would be interested in 15k annual allowance for 24 or 36 months.
