could you please share whether you got a lease on a 2018 530e without a downpayment? the best I could get from SF BMW was $297+tax for 24 months and $6,999 downpayment which turned out to be really like $9,700 after all fees were factored in.. I hated their approach of hiding fees.. what's the best deal I should strive for with little or no downpayment on a 36-mo lease

    A lot of the payment depends on how much of a discount from sticker you can negotiate.

    I can lease a Lamborghini for $297/mo - with $30,000 down.

    Down payment on a lease simply masks the true cost - we suggest the only up front money should be for the first payment and any DMV costs. Add everything else into the monthly payment.

    And - for BMW, 36 month terms usually give you the best payment.

  • Looking at leasing a 2018 BMW 530e (x-drive or i-drive) in California ....
    - what is the Money Factor and Residual for a 36 mth / 15k mile/yr lease?
    - any other notable lease incentives?
    - has BMW historically offered better lease terms in December vs. Nov or vice versa? Asked differently, would you personally buy/lease a BMW in Nov or Dec?
    Thanks for a terrific forum ... this kind of transparency is sorely missing in the broader market!

    Is the lease credit different for the Midwest (53017) on the 530e and 530e xDrive?

    BMW MSD program has changed. It's not available everywhere, and we don't have the details.
