  • Hi be02939. It's strange that you are getting all sorts of different answers about BMW FS' multiple security deposit program from dealers. The last time that I looked into it, this program allowed lessees to reduce the money factor that is used to calculate their vehicle's monthly payment by .00007 for each additional deposit that they make, up to a maximum of seven. I suppose that it's possible that BMW changed this program, but if it has I certainly haven't heard about it.

    BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for the 2007 550i is .00150 for up to 42 months.

  • Hi fm1. BMW Financial Services charges an acquisition fee on every vehicle that it leases, however its base fee is currently only $625. The dealer that you are working with is attempting to mark this fee up to add additional hidden profit to your deal. This is a fairly common practice amongst BMW dealers. As long as you know about it and take the additional $200 into account in your evaluation of this deal it's not terrible.

  • You're welcome, Andy. $1,500 over invoice isn't too bad, but this is really $1,700 over invoice once the $200 acquisition fee mark-up is taken into account. There's enough room here that it wouldn't hurt to shop around to see if any other dealers in your area would be willing to beat this deal. Make sure to stop by the following discussion to see how much other community members have paid for similar cars lately: "BMW 5-Series: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

    BMW Financial Services' new buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of the 2007 530i is .00090 with the payment of a security deposit at lease signing and .00105 with the deposit waived.

    Hi all

    Carman, I am trying to lease an 07 530xi with the following options: premium package, cold weather package and auto. Dealer quoted me 36 month 10k miles, 633.93/month including tax. This is based on 7msd at $4550, 1st month, bank fee, doc, title reg etc at $1852 for a total of $6402. 63% residual at end ($34158). This is based on a $51940 selling price, MF of .00111. He is claiming invoice of $50400. He states that with out the 7 msd, my MF would be .00160. This seems kind of high. Any help would be appreciated.
  • Hi sambo49. Here's the information that you're looking for. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 525xi with 10,000 miles per year are .00140 and 63%, respectively. If you opt to have your car's security deposit waived, the money factor would be .00015 higher. The $500 over invoice that you were quoted is a good price for this car.

  • Hello Nick. You absolutely can have the dealer that you trade your vehicle in to cut you a check for it rather than using the proceeds from it as a down payment for your lease. In fact, it is in your best interest to do so. You would be better off pocketing all of the money that you get from your current car and not even putting the $2,500 down. Consumers who make large down payments on leased vehicles risk losing them if their vehicle is totaled in an accident or stolen and never recovered.

    You're right, if the dealer that you are working with told you that the selling prices of leased vehicles are set at full MSRP they were lying. The selling prices of leased vehicles is negotiable just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. You definitely should not have to pay full MSRP this car. You should be able to get an idea of how much you will have to pay for it right now by visiting the following discussion: "BMW 5-Series: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

    BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for the 2007 530xi is .00090. Make sure that the dealer you are working with uses this factor to calculate your car's monthly payment.

  • Greetings ukrainian. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    As far as how much you should pay upfront on your lease goes, consumers can and should lease any vehicle that they are interested in without making any sort of capitalized cost reduction, aka down payment. All you will have to pay at lease signing are your car's first month's payment, a security deposit that is equivalent to its monthly payment rounded up to the nearest $50 increment, BMW Financial Services' $625 acquisition fee, and any required state taxes or fees. In fact, you can even have your car's security deposit waived in exchange for a slightly higher monthly payment.

    This car's lease program varies depending upon how long you lease it for and its mileage allowance. For now I will assume that you want a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 BMW 525xi with 15,000 miles per year are .00140 and 60%, respectively. The numbers for an otherwise identical lease of a 2007 530xi are .00160 and 60%. I would be happy to use these numbers to estimate what these cars' lease payments should be, but in order for me to do so I need you to tell me the exact MSRPs and approximate selling prices of the models that you want.

  • Welcome rolypoly. Since this is your first lease, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment. These articles will help explain all of the technical jargon that you find confusing.

    The money factor that you are being charged for this car is too high. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for this car is only .00065. You will receive a .00007 reduction from that for every additional security deposit that you make. A $4,000 total security deposit sounds like it includes around five additional deposits. This would result in a total money factor reduction of .00035, bringing your car's buy rate money factor to around .00030. Make sure that this is the factor that is being used to calculate your vehicle's monthly payment. Also, make sure to stop by the following discussion to compare the price that you were quoted to the prices that other community members have paid for similar cars lately: "BMW 5-Series: Prices Paid & Buying Experience".

  • Greetings albacore1. Since you have never leased before, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    If you believe that you are paying too much for this car, you should try to renegotiate your deal or comparison shop with a few other dealers to see if you can beat this price. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them.

    BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for the 2007 530xi Wagon is .00125. With the seven additional security deposits, a reduction of .00049, this model's buy rate drops to .00076. Make sure that the dealer you are working with uses this factor to calculate your wagon's monthly payment.

  • Hi shuale_ejs. New cars, especially new BMWs are very expensive purchases (or leases in this case). You absolutely should get yours exactly how you want it equipped. Of course it is not ideal that you didn't order your car right the first time, or the second time for that matter, but your better off getting the vehicle exactly how you want it than regretting that you didn't for the length of your lease. Selling vehicles is a salesperson's job, they'll get over your constant order changing. I personally would call them up and try to add the navigation option of I was in your situation.

  • Hello lamp. You never mentioned the selling price of the car that you are interested in leasing. This is an important number for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing the price of the car that you want to lease you don't know how good a price you are getting it for. The second reason is that one needs the selling price of a vehicle that they want to lease is that it is necessary to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion of this deal if you let me know what its selling price is.

  • Greetings Richard. Since you are new to the world of leasing, you definitely should check out the following informative articles that are available here at Edmunds.com prior to visiting any dealers: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment.

    The best way to approach getting a good deal on your lease is to negotiate as low a selling price as possible on the car that you want. The selling prices of leased vehicles are negotiable, just as if you were paying cash for or financing them. Negotiate a great price then have the dealer that you are working with calculate your car's monthly payment using its buy rate lease money factor. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate for the 2007 530i is .00090 with the payment of a security deposit at lease signing and .00105 with the security deposit waived. Make sure that this is the money factor that the dealer uses to calculate your lease because BMW dealers are notorious for marking money factors up to add additional hidden profit to deals.

    Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.

  • Hi Paul. Check out the following articles to get an idea of how leasing works: 10 Steps to Leasing a New Car and Calculate Your Own Lease Payment. Basically you need to negotiate as low a selling price as possible on the car that you want to lease. Then have the dealer that gives you that price calculate your lease payment using its buy rate lease money factor. It is important to find out what money factor your dealer is using to calculate your car's lease payment because BMW dealers are notorious for marking up vehicles' money factors to add additional hidden profit to deals. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate for the 2007 530i is .00090. Its factor for the 2007 525i is .00065. That's what you need to do in a nutshell. Let me know if you have any questions.

    I have a broker telling me that the residuals on the 525i have gotten better. Anyone know if that is true? In Dec. I ordered a 525i 28month, 15K, and M.F. .00065. Residual of 69%. All said and done, $599/mo taxes included. My sales guy said if the terms get better while the car is being made, I can take advantage of the better deals. Is that true? Thanks

    I am in negotiations for leasing a 550i (fully loaded for $68'835 MSRP; after discounts and trade in for $60'780):

    my sweet spot is 36mo/10Kmiles with flexible money down to keep monthly below $700 for personal reasons.

    On discussion notes from dealer I saw 62% residual and a MF of .00205, no mention of acquisition fee or security deposit, and cannot reconcile BMW website monthly with first dealer proposals. Strange and evasive discussion without transparency on line items and terms.

    1) was told that MF and residual are BMW set and fixed (non negotiable). doesn't sound that way from reading your discussions, where MF's are in a much lower range than .00205.

    2) are the low rates i am seeing just specials and mine is just regular rate because 550i not covered under any lease special ?

    3) any NC specifics i should be aware of?

    Thanks very much for any advice,

    Do you mind sharing how much was the selling price of the 525i with what options?

    Thx.

    ISMB,

    I don't know specifically about NC, but the BMWFS lease rates for Jan 2007 for 550i are:

    2007 BMW 5 Series 550i /

    24 mo/15k mi – Residual Value 70% of MSRP – .00150 Money Factor Buy Rate
    36 mo/15k mi – Residual Value 59% of MSRP – .00150 Money Factor Buy Rate
    48 mo/15k mi – Residual Value 37% of MSRP – .00322 Money Factor Buy Rate
    60 mo/15k mi – Residual Value 29% of MSRP – .00322 Money Factor Buy Rate

    Add 2% to Residual Value for 12k mi/yr and 3% for 10k mi/yr on all terms.

    It appears your dealer is providing the correct residual value, but charging you more for the MF. Also, the MF quoted from BMWFS of .0015 assumes a security deposit.

    I am negotiating a similar lease in CA incase you wanted to know why I am up on these numbers.

    Good luck,

    George

    George,

    thanks - very helpful. Are those published rates or where can I find them? any link?

    Researching the topic of the BMW lease calculation a bit more I found a very useful excel calculator in another forum, creating total transparency around all the input elements. Thought you might enjoy this one for your negotiations:

    525i Base: 43500, freight:695, Premium Pkg:2000, Cold Wx pkg:750,Auto:1275, Xenon:800, Sirius Radio:595 gives Sticker of 49615, sold to me for 47800, 28mo, 15k, 69%resid, MF .00065 for $599/mo taxes included. Have the residuals changed? Or is this the best deal I could get (I know, MF could have been .0005 but best I could get them down to was .00065. ((started at .0009))) I guess MF wont' go down but I was curious about what residuals are in Jan 07. Thanks P.S. they tried to get me for an $825 acquisition fee but after reading all these posts, I got it back where it should be $625. Thanks for everyones help.

Selling price: $52,970. 36 mos/12K mi. Tax paid upfront. $0 down payment. Total due at signing: $4,058 including sales tax, bank fee ($625), security deposit and 1st payment.

    Quick question: I qualified for the Dec BMW MF and was just curious if the 5 series MFs we've seen as of late (.0005 - .00065) are pretty regularly seen over the course of the year? In other words, are these MFs unprecedented or do they tend to come and go?

    Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

  • I'm looking for a 530i with few options for a 15k/2 yr lease. I was disappointed when MF rates went up in Jan but all things considered still not bad.

    1) Is it reasonable to get the negotiated price in my lease to be less than MSRP if I order a car to my specs to be delivered to my local dealer? Or is real negotiating room only on the cars on the lot? (I can't find anything close to what I want on the lots in South Florida.)

    2) Does anyone know how much time is left to order a 2007 model before factory starts producing new model year? One dealer told me I only have a few days left.

    3) Is the BMW MF buy rate the best I'll get w/o additional security deposits?

    4) Do you always pay the $625 acq fee upfront on a lease?

    5) If not bothered about having 2007 vs. 2008 model, is this going to be the best time (price-wise) to lease a 5-series for a while?

    Thanks for all the information on this site. I've learned a lot already.

    1) Yes.. negotiate a discount.. $2K off MSRP seems about average.

    2) Your dealer may be correct. I've heard that the '08s will be here in March.

    3) Yes.. the buy rate is the cheapest.

    4) You don't always have to pay it upfront. But, you have to pay it. It can be rolled into the CAP cost.

    5) If I were leasing, I wouldn't wait..

    Good luck,
