    Yes, erdoran, BMW has published a lease program for its new 2011 models. Unfortunately, BMW is not yet providing any sport of lease support on 2011 Z4s. As a result, if you were to lease one through BMW Financial Services right now, you would have to use its standard lease money factor. If you really want to lease, you will probably better off going with a 2010 model.

    BMW FS' standard money factors vary by region. Its standard buy rate in your area is probably anywhere from .00230 to .00260. BMW FS' 12,000 mile per year residual values for the vehicles that you mentioned are as follows:

    62% for a 24 month and 56% for a 36 month lease of a '11 Z4 30i.

    60% for a 24 month and 54% for a 36 month lease of a '11 Z4 35i.

    Wondering if anyone had the April MF and Residuals for the following:

    36mo/ 15k

    2011 Z4 30i
    2011 Z4 35i

    Also, are you still able to lease 2010's?

    If so, can you provide 2010 numbers as well?

    Thanks in advance!

    Here you go, pellynh. BMW is not providing lease support on 2011 Z4s yet. As a result, if you were to lease one through BMW Financial Services, you will have to use its standard lease money factors. BMW FS' buy rate standard factors vary by region, but they should be anywhere from .00250 to .00280 or so.

    BMW FS' April residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Z4 30i with 15,000 miles per year are 54%. The residual value for an otherwise identical lease of a '11 Z4 35i is 52%.

    You absolutely can still lease a 2010 Z4. BMW FS' April buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Z4 30i with 15,000 miles per year are .00180 and 51%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of '10 Z4 35i are .00165 and 49%.

    BMW is currently providing a $2,500 cash incentive on leases of the 2010 Z4, but nothing on leases of the 2011 model.

  • Hey Car_man

    Could you please post the lease numbers for a 2010 z4 sdrive35i? Looking at 36 months/15K year. Also, what rebates/incentives are they offering currently? Any BMW loyalty discount on the money factors for this vehicle? Thanks so much for your help.

    Hey z4maudioman. BMW Financial Services' July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Z4 35i with 15,000 miles per year are .00165 and 46%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    I don't believe that there is any loyalty incentives on this model right now, but BMW is providing $2,750 dealer cash on it which can be used in conjunction with the aforementioned special lease program.

    My Z4 lease is due at the end of this month. I am still interested in leasing a 2010 Z4 30i. Could you please let me know the money factor and residual for a 36 term lease? Is the money factor for 35i the same or different?

    Thanks.

  • Greetings ccdbb. Through September 30th, BMW Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Z4 30i with 15,000 miles per year are .00170 and 54%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    The numbers for the 35i are .00170 and 52%.

  • Hey ccdbb. BMW just made an enhancement to its program on the Z4 yesterday. This enhancement was on the 2011 model though. It pulled the plug pon its lease support for the 2010 model. So the '11 is definitely the way that I would go if I was leasing.

    BMW Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Z4 30i with 15,000 miles per year are .00120 and 58%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    This is a huge improvement over the old program because it slashes around $100/month off of the typical lease payment for this model.

  • How can I find out BMW FS / BMW NA money factors and residual values for other mileages? I'm shopping for a new Z4 3.5i but have only put about 6,500 miles per year on my old one. Since I've had it for 6 1/2 years and put 42,000 miles on it, I think it's very safe to presume I won't go over 8,000 miles per year. Paying for 12,000/year would be ridiculous for me.

    Is there some resource where these values can be looked up, or are they "secret?"

    BMW FS residuals are always quoted for 15k miles per year, and 12k miles is 2% higher and 10k is 3% higher than residual for 15k. I believe that BMW FS sets the MF as it wishes or feels that they can go with it. However, when they overdo them, then you have additional incentives in order to improve sales.
  • Hey Car Man,

    There are a few dealers here in the DC area with 2010 Z4 30i's left, any clue the lease details MF and residuals on 10,000 miles a year?

    Thanks,
    JC
  • Hi jcarl. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2010 Z3 3.0i with 10,000 miles per year are an unattractive .00230 and 40%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    If you really want to lease, you will probably be better off going with a 2011 model.

  • Hi Car_man,

    Can you give me BMW Financial Services Nov money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of 2011 Z4 3.0i with 10k miles per year? Thanks in advance!
  • Hi ttyl123.

    It looks like the Holiday Cash promotion is over now? What's BMW's current deal?
  • You are correct atebit. BMW's holiday cash is gone. This month BMW is providing special, lower money factors for loyal customers, but no cash on the 2011 Z4.

    BMW Financial Services' January buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Z4 3.0i with 10,000 miles per year are .00100 and 61%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.

    This money factor drops to .00070 for loyal customers.

  • Hi Car_man,

    Do you know what are money factor and residual for 2011 Z4 3.0i?
    I'm looking for 36month lease @ 12K per year.

    The car have MSRP of $50950 and price talked last with the dealer is $46250.
    With $0 Down, we are at $602/month.

    What do you think about this deal? by the way, I live in TX, so the sales tax of the total vehicle is rolled in to the lease.

    Thanks!

    I certainly do midnightfang. BMW Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Z4 3.0i with 12,000 miles per year are .00100 and 60%, respectively.

    This car's money factor drops to .00070 for loyal customers.

    When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $1,500 dealer cash that is currently available on it. If I was in the market for this car right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of $500 to $1,000 over invoice minus the cash.

    Hi Car_man,

    I am intrigued by the bmw advertised lease this month for the Z4 3.0 @ $399/24mo $2275down. Do you know what the MF and residual is for this lease? Because the car is selling at or close to invoice, can/should I do better than this (assuming the lease figures are advertised base on sticker)?

    Thanks!
