    They kept telling me the deal was unbelievable, and based on my research I believe it was.. I just wanted to get everyone else's opinion..
  • Hi xcvpat:

    I believe you got a good deal. However, I believe that had you put in 7 MSDs, your monthly payment would have dropped significantly. In my experience, the 7 MSDs have given me an approximate 50% return over a 36 month period. I would not be surprised if you got to a monthly payment of about 665 with the 7 MSDs. If you go to the dealership today and ask them to re-do the paperwork in yesterday's date, they are likely to be able to honor your request as they don't lose anything or gain anything from the MSDs - their buy rate gets reduced. I did this for a cousin of mine (re-did paperwork next day).

    PS: Of course, if you are in NY, then you cannot put in any MSDs.

    Good luck and let us know how you end up. Regardless, the deal you have got is very very good.

    Take care!
  • Thanks Bluffmate, I considered MSD's to lower my MF .00049 but decided I could do better with my $4,200 invested elsewhere.

    They also marked up the lease acquisition fee $200 (BMWFS allows the dealer to do this to make extra profit). BMWFS' standard lease acquisition fee is $725.

    You did get $8,780 off of the sticker price which is fantastic!

    Look into the MSD thing a little closer if you can. Think of the money saved on your monthly lease payment as a return on investment. Yes, you give them $4200 of your money to hold for 3 years. You could save $X per month.

    kyfdx is the master at MSD! What do you think?

    nyccarguy: Great catch on the lease acquisition fee and I completely agree with your point of view on the MSDs. It is a guaranteed return of investment which makes it a very popular product among lease enthusiasts.

    In my opinion, it is not a good deal since this is a 2013 model and the 2014s are available which is a LCI.

    In the 5 series lineup, I recommend also considering 2014 ActiveHybrid5. I am always ONLY into leasing so I think in terms of monthly payments (with zero down). The payment per month on it is same as 2014 528i since there is a $4500 eco credit which drops the payment on the car by $120 with it's current residual of 55%. Gas mileage is similar to a 528i. The power is great - phenomenal actually (I drove a 2013 AH5 for about 2 weeks - exchanged with a friend). The trunk is about 30 percent smaller than other 5 series but it still quite enough IMHO. Plus, the badge looks much classy than any other 5 series badges.

    On Nov 12th, my brother in law leased a 2014 AH5 so this is very fresh in my memory. We also ran the numbers for 2014 535i so I know the AH5 made more sense than the 528 or AH5 numbers wise with 100% same options/line/etc. My bro in law got the discounts including loyalty and the turnkey (turnkey only impacts the first month payment and does not lower the overall monthly payment).

    Here are the details:

    2014 AH5
    MSRP: $75675
    Monthly payment: $630 plus sales tax
    Cap reduction: $0
    Doc fee: $0
    Buy rate MF used and then reduced further by using 7 MSDs
    Dealer was is Bay Area of California
    If I remember correctly, cap cost was at $9xxx below invoice (this included ALL discounts apart from turnkey which was applied to first month payment).

    If it matters, his credit score was about 830 with a very good income to liability ratio.
  • I am considering a purchase of a brand new 2013 xDrive 535 Gran Turismo. This is one of only a small handful of 2013 Turismos left in my area. MSRP of $65,100. The dealer has a windshield sign of "Sale: $56,888". I haven't talked to the salesperson, yet, but would appreciate any comments on how much more I should and could push to lower the price. I know these GTs do not sell too well in the US and it's a 2013, so I'd hope to have an upper hand in negotiations. I am considering leasing for the first time, too.

    Thanks for any help.

  • Just got myself a Thanksgiving present. A 2013 535i xDrive GT. Fantastic vehicle so far and so much room in the back! Anyway, ended up with $9,238 off MSRP at $56,388. Wouldn't budge any more, i even walked out twice. Dealer threw in winter mats and i just made it for the holiday bonus of $500. I am happy with the deal and the car.
  • Can you please tell me where you bought it? which state/city? also is that new or used? I am considering 2013 535i GT but not xdrive so hoping i can get it down further, no need for AWD in Florida for me


  • I bought mine at Elmhurst BMW (suburb of Chicago). It was new with 20 miles on the ODO. It was sitting on their showroom floor, but the build date is 10/12, so they were motivated to sell it, although that's the only GT they had. Actually, there is only one other new 2013 GT left in the area. It's white, xdrive, and similarly priced. Dealer also motivated to sell. It's at Laurel BMW of Westmont, IL. Let us know if you get one.
  • I am looking to purchase a 2014 550I (Build). I am in the Dallas area. My question is should I take advantage of the Holiday and loyalty credit in Dec of $2500? or wait till after the new year? Will BMWFS offer these credits after January. I currently in a BMW lease which expires in March 2014 and want to purchase (I will be building my 550 which I have been told takes 6-8 weeks for delivery) so both cars do not overlap too much so I am making double payments on 2 cars.

    I am looking at a 550I with M Sport, Lighting Pkg, Driver Asst, Executive Pkg, Luxury seating Pkg, Heated Seats and rear shades. MSRP is $78,350. Invoice is $72,030, less Holiday Credits of $2500, invoice comes to $69,530. What is a good target purchase price from $69,530? $1000 over invoice? 2 or 3% over invoice?

    Please advise. Thank you
  • MF for '14 528ix 36 mo. /15k was 59% in November, was quoted 61% today. Please confirm this is correct RV in effect for Dec.
