    This is my first time dealing with reps through email and first time negotiating a lease deal. Here is the first offer I was given as I am passively looking to get quotes. The MSRP of the one I am looking at is $60,475.

    $0 down 36month/15k: $919.94 36month/12k: $888.39 Cap cost: $54,725 Tax: $3908.72 Dealer Fee: $599 Acq fee: $925.00

    Now I don't have the residual and MF numbers yet so I will begin to negotiate to get the car at around invoice. Any tips on this?

    Thanks!

    TRYING TO LEASE A new 2014 335i SEDAN I am now leasing a 328i and final pmt is due in July. BMW sent me a note that they have an early return deal that waives last 3 pmts if you are re-leasing another Bimmer...BUT dealer says that is a SEPARATE transaction from the deal I got, although, he was aware that I am doing an early return! What gives here? Who is responsible for these 3 pmts, BMW corp or the dealer? The deal for the 335i was excellent, but I have not signed it, now this new hurdle about lease return!

    It's just manufacturer cash... It's either used to lower the selling price, or as a CAP cost reduction (depending on restrictions).

    I'm guessing there is a lot of cushion in those prices.. Would you pay $900/mo. to lease a 3-series?

    At MF of .00081 (after MSDs) and residual of 71% for 24mo, 10K/yr, I get a payment of $513/mo.+tax., using your provided MSRP and CAP cost.. Of course, you have to account for the acquisition fee and TTL.

    513 + tax9% = 560$, just received phone call from local dealer - price accepted, will be getting my 328GT in May :) , I hope its going to be a much better ride than my 535xi (so much vibration and so boring )

  • Any details on wagon leases for March. Looks like residuals are 65% for 36/10k.

    Do any of you have tips on how to ask or negotiate prices close to the invoice not the MSRP?

  • nsfw1nsfw1 Posts: 1

    @nym said: This is my first time dealing with reps through email and first time negotiating a lease deal. Here is the first o 36month/12k: $888.39

    Something is wrong with this pricing. I have a 2012 3.5 X5 that MSRP's for $75k+ and I only pay $900 a month for 12k miles. You must have some huge markup on the Money Factor. Shop til you get .00130.
    If you can't get an answer re: MF, just ask if they mark it up. Say bye bye and move on.

  • nymnym Posts: 11

    My rep first gave me the MF of .0017 and then changed it to .0013 after I asked for a better quote. Here is the last offer he emailed:

    $53,863.36 cap cost and this included $600 dealer service fee, $925 acq. fee, and the tax.

    $744.49 with ZERO CASH for 36 months and 12k miles

    The MSRP is $60,475.00 and the actual invoice price is $55.615 without the eco/option credit.

    I think it's time to move on...

    Looking to lease a 2014 320i or 328i, moonroof is a must, leather is nice but can live with sensatec if will cut on the monthly payment.

    36months/15K miles in South Florida.

    1) 320i or 328i?

    2) premium package or just moonroof? (is this even possible?)

    3) Price, monthly payment, MF, Residual, acceptable dealer fees.

    Thank you for your time and your help.

    Thank you for your time and your help.

    1) You should drive them. A big difference in horsepower. The lease programs are different, but comparable. The 320i will probably be cheaper, because it's a less expensive vehicle.

    2) You can order a moonroof on either model. $1050. Or, the premium package for $3200. The premium package has a lot of good stuff.. auto-dimming mirrors, comfort access, universal garage door opener, lumbar supports, etc.. plus the moonroom..

    3) 320i: .00130 MF and 62% residual. $500 option credit cash
    328i: .00130 MF and 59% residual. $2000 option credit cash.

    You'll have to get the MSRP and selling price for us to calculate a payment.

    How should negotiate sales price? Ask for invoice? Settle for invoice or push for under invoice (is this realistic)?

    Also they tend to put fees everywhere, reading the posts, looks like around 750$ in fees is ok? (Plus tag?)

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Before you negotiate in Florida, find out the dealers' doc fee.. $599-$899 is not unusual for Florida (must be something in the water). If the fee is $700, then I'm shooting for invoice, minus any available incentives.. $700 is plenty of profit on a car that has incentives. The only other fees should be the acquisition fee ($725) and government title/license fees. Florida taxes the monthly payment, so the only tax upfront will be on those fees (doc and acq., not government), or any CAP cost reduction that you make (which I wouldn't do).

    Make sure you are getting the base money factor. Most BMW dealers will attempt to mark that rate up, for extra profit.

    You have to introduce the possibility of going to a different BMW dealership to get the lowest price, so shop around.

    Good choice.... bad deal for sure. Dealer service fee is pure crap and the acq fee is jacked up by $200.

    2014 328xi with moonroof and heated seats - 10k/yr. MSRP - 42320, selling price 3640. Residual - 61% and MF: 0.0013. Taxes & Fee - 2600$. Requires 7 months payments as deposits which will be returned at the end of lease term. Is this a good deal?

    btw why does bwm charge 725$ for bank fee, banks are happy to make money off interest.

  • gopalrgopalr Posts: 15

    typo - selling price was 36400

  • gopalrgopalr Posts: 15

    I am looking to lease in next few days. Appreciate your quick feedback.
