BMW Z4 Lease Questions



  • My 2007 Z4 M Coupe lease was for 24 months so I know you can do that short.
  • Need some advice for my daughter who's contemplating buying her leased 2007 Z4 with about 24,000 miles after the Dealer Certifies it as a Certified Pre-Owned. Quoting her residual @ $34,000, but will sell around $29,000 plus $1300 cost of the Certification.

  • Hi hky. Technically it is possible to lease a Z4 for less than 30 months, say 24 months. However doing so is not a good idea. BMW is providing the most lease support on 30 month terms. Its buy rate lease money factor for that term is an extremely attractive .00050. If you were to lease an '09 Z4 3.0 for 24 months, its money factor would nearly triple to .00125.

  • Hi Carman,

    Do you have the October lease rate (money factor) for a 30 month lease for a 2009 Z4 (both models).

    Thank you,
  • When BMW financing provides a lease offer, is it possible to alter that offer slightly? For example, the current leasing offer for the Z4 stipulates a $3000 down payment with approximately $4600 due at lease signing. I would like to put only $2000 for the down payment and I'm wondering if this is possible. I'm aware of the fact that the montly pament will increase (about $30 more a month).

    I've heard that some lease deals cannot be altered. Any info would be helpful.

    Sure you can... those lease examples are usually structured to make the monthly price seem low...

    But, you can structure it any way you want... On my last lease, I only paid 1st payment and registration fees up front.. ($XXX + $114).

  • I certainly do, Bruce. BMW Financial Services' October buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 30 month lease of a 2009 Z4 3.0 with 15,000 miles per year are .00115 and 63%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of an '09 Z4 3.5 are .00090 and 63%, respectively.

  • I am turning in a 2008 528i in Northern California and looking at a 328i convertible or a Z4 30i.
    Do you have current MF and residuals on 2010 Z4 30i ?
    36mth 10,000 mile
    36mth 12,000 mile
    24mth 10,000 mile
    24mth 12,000 mile
    Any particular incentives or deals on the car that I should be aware of? Thanks.
  • just an FYI to everyone out there.

    I just picked up a remaining 2009 Z4 35i. There is an amazing 29 mo lease program for November.

    60,500 msrp
    3000 bmw cash
    12k/29 mo
    mf .0007
    res 65%

    $2500 due
  • A bit ago, probably about a month or so (October 10th or just about then) I helped my friend get him a 2009 BMW Z4 30i. MSRP $50,600.

    When all was said and done, he ended up with $499/month inc. CA 9.75% tax/title/reg with $1,000 driveoff (including first month's, dealer fees, and anything else you can think of.)

    The term limits are:
    30 month lease

    Just wanted to know if I did a decent job for my friend or not. If you need any other info, I'll deliver it.
  • Hi mackeys. Here's the information that you're looking for. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2010 Z4 3.0i with 12,000 miles per year are .00250 and 64%, respectively.

    The numbers for an otherwise identical 36 month lease are .00250 and 57%.

    If you were to lease this car with only 10,000 miles per year, its residual values would be 1% higher.

    When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take the $1,500 holiday credit that BMW is providing on it into account.

    MSRP 51,200 INVOICE 47,500 Here is my question:.

    When using the basic lease form from Edmounds, do I subtract the $1500 HC and the $1,700 dealer assistance ($3,200) from the invoice price of $47,500 and then add back in $500 for the dealer? ($44,800 selling price)

    If this is not correct, please explain where these discounts should go so I can discuss a price with the local dealer. Thanks much Carman. Art

    I am still confused. I see some writers taking the monies off the MSRP instead of the INVOICE cost. I am trying to order a BMW during the promotion period. HELP.


  • Hi mower. The $1,500 cash incentive that is currently available on the 2010 Z4 comes out of BMW's pocket and has nothing to do with the dealer.

    When negotiating a lease on the Z4 that you're interested in, either shop around for the lowest possible selling price before any incentives are deducted stipulating that the $1,500 will be subtracted from that


    Figure out exactly how much you want to pay for this car, taking the $1,500 into account, before visiting dealers and use that as your target price.

    Either way, you should be able to negotiate an attractive dealer discount before the deduction of any BMW-sponsored cash incentives.

    That looks like a great deal on a $60K car...

    Don't know where you live, but a 29-month lease on a convertible gets you three winters and only two summers... Of course, if you are in Houston, Miami or SoCal, that's no big deal..

  • Close to Houston in Austin Texas. One month of winter per year. My wife is not sure about it because it doesn't have seat warmers or satellite radio!
  • well we did not pull the trigger on it. My wife appears to like the Acura better. If anyone wants that deal in Austin Texas it seems like a great deal to me.
