    Did your dealer give you the VIN number? If so, you can track your car on-line, via the BMW Owner's Circle...

    But, your dealer should be able to find out what ship the car is on, what day it is due in port, etc..

    He may not know exactly when it will be at the dealership, but he should be able to find out exactly where it is now. If he says he can't, then I'd be worried..

    greetings,

    Is there any way to find out the BMWFS money factor and residuals on left over 2006s. My dealer still has some left over 2006 M3 convertibles, and I was wondering if they are offering the same good lease deals as they are on the 2007s

    Thanks

  • yea i would like to know that too
  • I am getting a 335 sedan with auto, premium and satellite for 36 months and 15k/year.
    MSRP is $43,715.
    Negotiated price is $42,100.
    Bank fee is $825.
    MF is .00165
    Residual is 61%.
    Monthly payment is $566.xx plus tax
    Drive off is first month plus tags and DMV fees.

    Is this a good deal? I tried to negotiate a lower price, but dealer wouldn't budge--best offer of all dealers I contacted. How much lower should I be able to get?

    Thanks in advance!

    You don't say where you are located and I am not sure if this helps you. In NoCal, I got a lot of $500 over invoice offers for the 328i for straight purchase deal. I haven't been able to buy yet :(
  • HI
    One of the dealer gave me a quote for 328i coupe with premium package, sports package, logic 7 sound and heated front seats for 39,200 dollars which is $650 over the invoice price.

    This is the best offer I got from the dealers in and around jersey.

    Hi all,

    I have an '07 335CIC hardtop convertible on order for April (hopefully) delivery. Still haven't seen anything "official" on pricing for the car, and I'm wondering if any of you out there have an earlier delivery planned and have seen pricing detail.

    Those are extra...lol..

    Seriously, I don't have the rest of the numbers... but, your dealer does. They came out about a week ago..

    A lot of the numbers you could extrapolate off current coupe option pricing, if you don't want to call the dealer.

    regards,

    If you are happy with $650 over invoice, then it's a good deal. It's up to you, if you want to haggle for more.

    A good deal = happy with the price you paid.
  • I have been interested in a 2007 328i sedan with all the bells and whistles, About a $44,000 msrp price tag. I live in N.J. and am new to this whole leasing thing. What would be an average deal for a 3yr 12,000 mile lease? I would be willing to put down up to $4,000 to keep the payments down if I had to. What would be a fair residual price? If I go to the bmw website it states 3yr 10,000 $480 month with $4000 down but shows no residual. Very confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  • Do you mind telling me whom you were dealing with? I'm dealing with someone at Pacific who's saying that he can do $750 over invoice on a 335i Sedan, but can't waive MACO ($380) or the destination charge ($775). That's $1,155 that I'd rather not spend...

    I don't know if that's a good price or not, but I just ran the numbers and it is more like $1,200 over invoice. Sounds like they are throwing in some fees that they're not being up front about. With people being so obsessed with invoice prices, dealers are throwing in paperwork fees, prep fees, training fees, etc. Next they'll start charging you to park the car at the dealership. Still, at the end of the day, if that's the lowest anyone will offer you, then it's a good deal.

    March 07' deal on 328i sedan
    MSRP 39,295
    Sales Price 37,275
    Lease, 10K/ 36 months
    Residual, .64
    Money Factor .00175
    Acq. Fee 825 + Doc. Fee 100 (no sec. deposit)
    Monaco/leather, Auto, Xenon, Premium, heated seats,
    $2000 down and 464 a month.

    No idea if this is a good deal or not, though dealer promises it is (likely!). Are they trying to take advantage of me because they think I am a girl that does not understand cars?

    Please visit http:\\www.leaseguide.com

    You are not keeping your payment down when you put cash into the car - you're just taking 4k out of your bank and putting it in BMW's pocket immediately. Drop that 4k into a 5% Ameritrade/etrade account.

    3 yr 12k mile with a 328i coupe is:

    36 mo/12k mi – Residual Value 60% of MSRP – .00125 Money Factor Buy Rate

    44k MSRP
    42k base (assuming you're decent at negotiating)
    36 months
    60% residual
    3%/0.00125 MF (no markup and no MSDS on your part)
    7.75 tax (don't know your tax rate)
    = 559 a month
    Total out of pocket = ~20100

    Put 3850 into multiple security deposits and your new MF is 0.0076 (0.00125 - 0.00049)
    Your lease rate would be about $523 a month and you'd get your 3850 back at the end of the lease.
    Grand total spent ~18800 (+ you get 3850 back)

    Going your way
    44k msrp
    40k base
    0.00125 mf
    60 residual
    7.75% tax
    496 per month
    Grand total spent: 17865 + 4000 down payment = 21865

    I was dealing with the sales person Ricardo at the end of the month (Feb). Make sure that they have the car that you want otherwise it is hard to get a good price. Are you planning to lease or buy ?
  • I'm planning on leasing. I had a bit of a revelation today with regards to the relationship between Money Factor and Security Deposits. Figured out that putting the MAX security down on a BMW lease is equivalent (for the car that I'm looking at) to a $4000 investment that pays 13% APR over 3 years... TAX FREE. I'm sure everyone else on this board has already figured this out, but this blew my mind.
