    You guys think all-in-all a good deal though? Getting 5K off MSRP.

    As noted before, NY collects tax upfront, while CA taxes the monthly payment.
    While the money upfront and final payment should be similar, there will be major differences in how the numbers are allocated.

    It looks like a decent deal, but I have a hard time believing you couldn't get the same deal in California. There are a couple of BMW dealers out there.
    I don't understand why there would be major differences in how numbers are allocated. And even if they are, why would it matter if upfront and final payment are almost identical? Why wouldn't I be able to get same deal in LA?

    If you give the NY dealer $5000, it's possible some of that will be used to pay the tax, which is collected up front.

    If you give the CA dealer $5000, it's likely that most of that amount will be used as cap reduction.

    Our point is that you should be able to get a similar deal in CA.

    One other thing - how would you get the car from NY to CA? Ship it? Figure a grand, at least, for those costs. Fly out and drive it back? You'll start your lease with 2500+ miles on your new car.

    I guess you're making what should be an easy transaction complicated.

    Work with a CA dealer - who knows how many there are between SD and LA? Dozens? One of them may want to sell you that M4 for $5K off sticker.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and let us know! Post a pic of your new purchase or lease!

    Wouldn't pay 5K up front if I were leasing in CA. Only $ I would give up front is first month and all DMV fees like you said to do earlier. Have an offer from the broker in NY to cover half of the shipping cost to do the deal.

    You're right though. It would be much easier to do the deal somewhere within 200 miles of LA. Just worried I might not get the same deal, or they won't have same inventory. We shall see. The saga continues. Thanks for all of your guys' help though! Much appreciated.

    Since I'm a complete stranger on the internet, let me play devil's advocate.

    When you're shopping in that price range (heck, anything over $40K is stratospheric to me), you should get exactly what you want - color, options, etc. If you have to go to NY to get that exact car, I can understand that.

    But, there are a ton of BMW dealers closer to CA than NY. Is this particular M4 a unicorn? Phoenix, Vegas, San Francisco, Denver, Portland, Seattle - all of those place should have a car similar to the one in NY.

    What is #1? It can't be an M4 with that MSRP.

    We would need sale prices, adjusted CAP costs, state and tax rate, even to hazard a guess.

    How does the lease credit work? Just cap cost reduction? Can you apply fleet on top of that? Any extra for current BMW lessee?

    Yes, cap reduction.

    I think fleet will stack - is there still a fleet lease incentive?

    No information on loyalty.
