    Dealer told me the residue of 2015 435xi for 10k/36month is 61% (instead of 63% for 2014 model), is this true?

    There is no 435xi convertible - the 435i vert has a residual of 65% for 36/12. Same MF of .00130.

    2015 model, maybe? If it's not in the dealerships this month, they won't show a lease program for it.

    We would need to know the selling price and money factor. Lease end value shouldn't be 53%.. did you mean 63%?

    Generally, but it depends on the lease term and how many miles per year.

    Too much missing information to reliably evaluate the deal.

    .00130 is the MF and 62% is the residual for a 36 month, 12K mile per year lease. If your cap cost is the same as the MSRP, the pre-tax payment is $731.39/mo for 36 months.

    Use the pricing tools at the top of the page to determine what a good selling price should be, then negotiate to that number with your dealer. Every $1000 you save on the selling price translates to a $28/mo savings in your payment.

    What are the residual and money factor for the 435i for whatever the sweet spot is? What is it, 36 months or 39 months? 10k miles?

    36mo, 10K/yr = .00130 MF and 63% residual.

    Might the 24 month lease be a sweet spot for the car?

  • muffinflavoredmuffinflavored Member Posts: 83

    Are there any incentives/rebates available on this car?

    What's a typical discount to be expected? Is it likely to walk into a dealer looking to get 10%? If not on this car, how about a 2014?

  • MichaellMichaell ColoradoModerator Posts: 182,928

    @muffinflavored said:

    Add 6% to the residual for 24 months. 36 months is usually the sweet spot, unless there is a special on 33 or 39 months where the residual is adjusted for favorable terms.

    Are there any incentives/rebates available on this car?

    On the 2015's, not at this time.

    What's a typical discount to be expected? Is it likely to walk into a dealer looking to get 10%? If not on this car, how about a 2014?

    Use the pricing tools at the top of the page to see what the typical transaction price should be; generally the rule is invoice - available incentives. Not sure that 10% is an achievable goal. 2014's might have more room to negotiate.

    When are incentives usually available for a car? How long does it take to achieve 8%+ off MSRP after a car is released on the market? 6 months?

    Too many variables to really say. Depends on supply and demand, mostly. With the 4-series being more of a 'niche' vehicle for BMW, I would think later rather than sooner.

    But, I could be wrong.

    All you can do is go into the dealer and present your offer. They will accept or reject based on market conditions and/or the needs of the dealership to sell one more unit.

    Am planing to lease a 2015 428 Gran Coupe - and noticed that BMW now has offers for leases that look reasonably attractive. For my zip code (30004 - Atlanta area) they are offering a 428 GC with premium package (Car value is said to be $43,900) and the lease is for 10K miles a year - 36 months - and the payment is $439. According to the BMW "build your car" - they estimate that a car at that price point would have a $490 / month lease payment.

    I'm trying to figure out what the "variable" is in their lease offer - I assume it must be some sort of cap cost reduction or money factor reduction - as I would assume that they would hold the residual value constant. Am i right? If someone can share how they get to their lease offer, that would be very helpful.

    I wanted to try and build what I want and then apply the same sort of "variable" so that I can figure out the potential lease payment.

    Would appreciate any guidance - and would also love to know the current MF and residual for the 2015 428GC. Would like to know for both 10K/year and 12K/year mileage.

    Thanks very much for the info.

    MF is .00130 and residual is either 62% or 63%.

    Most advertised deals expect the dealer to make a contribution (aka discount) from MSRP, as well as a cap cost reduction. The website probably assumes no discount.

    Use the shopping tools at the top of the page to get a price target for your car.

    They are using .00130 MF and residual for 63% for 36mo, 10K/yr.

    The advertised payment assumes a $600 discount from the dealer. If you read the fine print, the due at signing is $4164, which is $3000 downpayment, $725 acquisition fee and $425 first payment.

    Subtract 1% from the residual to go from 10K/yr to 12K/yr.

    Not sure what you mean by "dealer invoice for 1000. off". Is that the dealer discount from MSRP? If so, I get $652/mo.

    Not much of a discount, but of course, it's a brand new model. It's good that you are getting the base MF and acq.fee. Another $1000 off would net you $29/mo., pre-tax.

    Tire warranties are dealer items, and usually marked up substantially.. They are negotiable, but rarely a good deal.

    I'm 33 months into a 36 month lease on an Infiniti with 18" tires.. no pops..

    I run 35 and 40 series 18" tires on my other car (BMW), and the only tire damage I've had was a blowout on a worn-out 17" winter tire.. That's over 4 years and 45K miles.. (and that was because I didn't dodge the pothole... my fault).

    The last time I bent a rim was in 1982 on my Accord hatchback...

    Just watch where you are going.. Insurance is for expenses you can't pay yourself.. like rebuilding your house if it burns down, or running into that Mercedes and totalling your BMW... Not for tires and wheels. That just buys the guy at the BMW dealership a bigger boat.

    In NY, you calculate the sales tax on the sum of the payments, which can then either be paid up front or rolled into the cap cost.

    Base MF is .00130, 36/12 RV is 62%.

    BMW does not offer 39 month leases, and anything over 36 months is prohibitively expensive.

    Hi Guys,

    Getting ready to lease my first car so please have patients with this newbie :) Based on reading the previous comments, I have asked for the following information from the dealer:

    1. Model: 2015 428i M Sport/Tech/DriveAssist/Premium/19"Wheels/HK/Heated Front Seats
    2. MSRP: 53,975
    3. Invoice: (Price quoted): 50,185 (wheel locks, window tint included)
    4. Money Factor: 0.00170
    5. Residual: 61%
    6. Duration/Miles: 3yr/10k
    7. Drive Off: First Payment, License Fee, $150 Documentation
    8. Acquisition Cost: 925
    9. State: Washington

    Questions:

    1. Any more information I need to get from the dealer?
    2. Based on previous comments, I think the Acquisition Cost and Money Factor are high. If so, what's a number that is reasonable to negotiate considering I am getting the car at a discount?
    3. From previous posts, I see that I shouldn't put any money down, does this hold true and if so should I leverage MSDs instead?
    4. What is the best way to calculate an estimated monthly payment with the numbers above, I got 701 with zero down including tax but I think that is low so I must be doing something wrong?
    5. Any other feedback?

    Thanks so much for your patience, guidance, and information.
