  • Is there anyway to reduce the money factor? The figure you posted seems high.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 31,103
    That is the base rate... the only way to lower it, is to make multiple security deposits (MSDs). If you make 7 additional security deposits, BMWFS will lower the money factor by .00049.

    Other than that, the rate is the rate... unless the dealer marks it UP, of course..

  • That's great. What is the amount and terms for bBMW's security deposits?
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 31,103
    The security deposit is your payment, rounded up to the next $50 increment.. (payment is $379, then deposit is $400, etc..).

    So, in that example, 7 MSDs would equal $2800, refundable at end of lease.

    There is no way to determine if this is a good deal...you need to know the invoice and work from there. There is a $2000 build out credit on 2013's. Dealers are blowing out there 2013's. Again, do not put money down on a lease except for the drive offs. Use the money for multiple security deposits, which in turn lower the money factor, lowering the payments.

    The residual is set by BMW FS, the dealers have no say in it. The dealers can raise the acquisition fee to $925 and the money factor up to .00165, the base money factor is .00125.

    I would look for a deal at invoice, minus the incentives with base fees.
  • For 2013 M3 Conv for 36mth at 12k miles

    Is the MF of .00125 and Residual of 62% the official BMW low offer?

    With the $1500 build out, what can I expect to pay compared to invoice?

    Thanks...Mike

    I show .00125 and 59% for September..

    2013 M3s are probably few and far between..... no idea what sort of deal you can make, but I wouldn't hope for a lot... might have a better chance on a convertible than a coupe, though...

    Does anyone have the lease numbers for a 2013 328 and 335 convertible? I'm looking only at the convertibles and 36 months with 12k or 15k miles. Also considering the 135 convertible. Thanks!
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 31,103
    Money factor is .00125 for both the 328 and 335 convertibles...

    Residual is the same for both, as well... 60% for 36mo, 15K/yr.. add 2% for 12K/yr.

    $1500 build-out cash for either.. $500 BMWFS owner loyalty..

    Wow, much better than the 135. Now I just need to find a reasonable priced 335 so that it will cost about the same as the 135.

  • Hello all!

    I am completely new to leasing a car and live in Honolulu, Hawaii, where there is only one (1) BMW dealer (monopoly!) I got a quote for a 2014 BMW 335i Alpine white with a sport line upgrade and coral leather interior upgrade.

    Not sure what all this money factor and RV stuff i am reading about is... just wondering if this is a good deal.

    $4,000 down
    $528.51 per month
    36 month lease
    10k miles a year

    what I see on their cost sheet they provided has...
    Rate: 1.45
    Residual: .61
    Acquisition fee: $925.00
    Rebate: $750.00
    Govt fees: $339.30
    Taxes: $1,067.84
    Doc fee: $195.00
    Adj Residual: $28,959.75 (cost to buy out at end of lease term)
    MSRP is $47,475.00

    sounds kind of high now that i am reading these forums.

    Any thoughts if this is a good / horrible deal? Any advice / feedback would be fantastic. thank you awesome community!

    Looking for 12K/36 2013/2014 320i residual and Money Factor numbers.

    Thank you in advance.

    I think you've answered your own question.... you live in Hawaii and there is only one dealer.. Unless you can convince him that you may lease an Audi or Infiniti or Mercedes, instead.... you don't have a lot of bargaining power.

    I will say they are marking up the money factor from .00125 to .00145, and also the acquistion fee from $725 to $925... Get those two things back to the base rate, and it would save you about $25/mo...

    Sorry, they are hosing you big time.... I live on the Big Island and I ended up ordering a car from the LA area. Even though I had to pay $1200 to ship it here, I saved a ton over the Hawaii dealers. If I was you... I would contact Greg at Pacific BMW and see if they can work something out for you. On a side note....do NOT put down 4k on a lease. If you want to save money, use multiple security deposits. For each MSD, you reduce the money factor by .0007. In my case I save exactly $40 per month on my payment.
  • thanks for the feedback on this.... though once the lease is done, do you have to ship it back to them?

    what do you pay for your model?

    what in your opinion would be a "fair" price for the model i want?

    sorry for all the questions but it is truly appreciated.
  • thanks for the feedback! do you think that if it dropped by $25.00 per month, that it would be a "good" deal for what i am getting?

    just seeking other opinions... thank you!
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 31,103
    Sorry.. it's hard for me to keep up with the market on each individual make, unless I'm actively shopping for it..

    Other members are probably a better resource for what is a good deal.

    Hey guys,

    I am interested in leasing a BMW. I am a returning customer, so I apply for the loyalty cash. This is the offer I got. I previously financed a 2008 328i using these forums as a resource to get as close to what I thought was a great deal as possible.

    Cash due at signing: $5,599

    This includes $2750 downpayment, 1st month payment, acquisition fees, MV fees, Doc fees, taxes.

    Monthly payment of $315 for 36 months (10k miles)

    This is information on the car:

    2013 BMW 320xi Mineral Grey Metallic with black dakota leather. It has heated front seats and premium package which includes moonroof, power seats comfort access and satellite radio. MSRP $41,175 selling price $35,000.

    Now... What is everyone's opinion? I apologize if I seem novice, but this is a new venture for me (Leasing).
  • We are taking delivery of a custom order 2014 328i xDrive Gran Turismo in about a week and are wondering if October lease rates have been released yet? Our term will be 36 months and 12k miles/yr.

    Thanks for any help CarMan or others can provide!

    Hi kydfx,

    Could you please give me some information about lease rate in October for 328i xdrive (both coupe and seden, 24 months, 10k/year).

    I appreciate your time and help.

    Thanks.

    2013 328xi Sedan 24m, 10K/yr lease
    .00125 MF and 65% residual...

    The coupe has the same money factor and a 69% residual.

    The 36 month residuals are just 6% lower, and a much better deal..
