BMW 5-Series Lease Questions

    There are instances when purchasing a car after your lease works. My X5 that I own I did just that. They lowered the price way below what the used car market was, they verified it, detailed it, new tires and almost free financing 3%. I had to contact different dealers for the best deal. So definitely not to do it is not always the right choice, if you want the car.

    How about 535 Gran Turismo? I wonder if it would be better. Also 36x10k.

    Thanks in advance.

    Car man

    Does the 1500 bonus cash apply to this model( 2013 528xi )? For a lease of course. Thanks so much for all your help.

  • Unfortunately, tspark, the $1,500 cash incentive that was available on the 5 in March is no longer available in April.

    I'm in Los angeles. Can you tell where you got such a great deal? Currently looking for 535 with premium and technolgy package. What should I expect a lease payment to be with a good deal?
  • Colorado

    M Sport
    Cold Weather Package
    Driver Assistance Package
    Premium Package
    Navigation System
    MSRP - 66,545

    I don't have total monthly yet. Does this sound like a good deal? Dealer tried to give me a MF of .00170, but I talked them down.

    Try Greg @ Pacific BMW in Glendale. He's done right by me several times over.

    Here is the deal I have been offered. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Car: 535i 2013
    Term: 36 month X 15K miles
    MSRP: $61,045
    Invoice:$56,445 (Jet Black, M Sport, Premium, Navigation, Parking Distance Control)
    Payment with 6% Tax: $715

    Due at signing: $2200 (First payment $715, Bank fee $599, Dealer Fee $925, Tag $250)
    **This includes forgiving 3 out of my 4 outstanding payments plus $500 first payment credit. I will still have to make my 4th payment ($650) on my current BMW which I have 500 miles left before I go over and is due back n 9/18. Thoughts?

    I feel I might be better off waiting another month so I don't have to eat that 4th payment. Granted RVs and MFs hold up and they continue to offer the pull forward program on 3 remaining payments.

    My Infiniti M37x comes off lease in August. After having three Ms, I'm ready to get a five, two of which I had previously. But the timing seems less than optimal. I want a 2014 and wonder how long I would need to wait before what I suspect is higher pricing at the start of the model year will get down to "normal" levels. I have a second car and can wait if needed, but would prefer not to do so for a long time. Suggestions greatly appreciated.
  • berisky1berisky1 Posts: 20
    I was offerred the exact same deal in CA incl the 3 months of my present car, but it was a $65K msrp. You can do better.
  • berisky1berisky1 Posts: 20
    Center BMW.

    But I may start using a broker called Authority Auto. That way, I don't feel guilty getting the absolute best deal I can once I get to know the salesperson. (I'm not affiliated, just thinking about it)

    1) Has anyone managed to negotiate current advertised lease offers for better terms?

    2) What if exact lease program spec vehicle is not available, how will the lease program be modified ?

    For example current program running in SoCal:

    Well-equipped including features such as Executive Package (Comfort Access, Heads-up Display, Satellite Radio, Premium Hi-fi and more), Navigation, Xenon Headlights, Moonroof and Destination charges.
    $689*/month for 36 months. $750 Loyalty Cash included in payment.
    • $689 First months payment
    • $3,500 Down payment
    • $0 Security Deposit
    • $725 Acquisition fee
    • $4,914 Cash due at signing

  • berisky1berisky1 Posts: 20
    Donchar: We need more information...

    a- are you talking about a 550i? I don't think the exec package is available on the 535i.

    b- is this deal advertised by a dealer or by bmwusa?

    c- why do you want to put down a down payment?
  • berisky1berisky1 Posts: 20

    Security Deposit $0.00
    First Payment $775.00
    Rebate - $1,250.00
    DRIVE OFF $2,300

    Thanks Berisky1. Good info. The offer was for a 550iGT

    Just trying to understand if advertised offers like the one on BMWUSA currently can be negotiated or modified for a better deal.

    Looks like your deal is better. Not sure if you started from an advertised lease offer or you just negotiated from scratch.

    Hi CarMan

    Can you share the lease rates/residuals for May for a 2013 528 xDrive for 15K miles? Also, any incentives (option credits, nav credits, etc?)

    It is a great deal.
    I tried to get one similar in San Francisco Bayarea, CA.
    The "internet manager" are much less forthcoming. They never give me a complete disclosure like the one you provided above.

    It is too bad you are in Newyork, otherwise, I would lease one from you.
  • insidecarbuyinsidecarbuy NYCPosts: 95
    You have at least 10 BMW dealers within a 50 mile radius of you. This makes it very competitive for dealers. Shop harder, you'll get it!
  • What kind of deal's do you have for the 550i M package? really need one in my life.
