Sep 15, 2011 (8:28 am)
I can only briefly comment on the performance difference between the 328i & 335i, since I had the pleasure of owning both. If you are a first timer with BMW, then yes go ahead and get the 328i, it's a fun car to drive. Later you may want to get into a 335i where you will notice a big difference in performance! Once you get into a 335i you ask yourself why you didn't do that sooner.

#11451 of 11920 2011 328i lease deal?
Sep 18, 2011 (10:28 am)
I am looking at a used 13000 mile 2011 328i MSRP 44,675.00. The dealer has discounted it to 38,990.00. Is this a good deal? Car has the following, Convenience Package, Cold weather Package, Premium Package, Value Package, Steptronic, Nav, etc.
Is this a good deal or should it be discounted more? They are offering me a lease 36 months/15000/year no money down for 598.00.
Thanks for all inputs. This is the first time looking at BMW's
Need to know ASAP

According to Truecar.com, you could buy that car for around $41,000 so you'll have to decide if it's worth 13,000 miles to save $2,000. Something to bear in mind is that you're leasing the car for 45,000 miles, so the car could have up to 58,000 miles on it when you return it. The warranty will run out at 50,000 (and possibly the included maintenance too).
As for the numbers, the new lease figures should be 0.00190 money factor and 61% residual if I remember correctly. Assuming you're paying all the fees up front, then I make the payment to be $451 plus tax. Because it's used, they'll be using different figures.
If you were to buy the same car new, and get it for $41,000, then your monthly should be around $512+tax.
Bear in mind, I'm no professional at this. Just pulling in info from different sources. I did sell Infinitis for a couple of years though

Thanks mortienne! I really dont know what to do. Can you give me your opinion on what you would do? Should I just look at another brand new one or take this one. Their lease price was including all fees and taxes no money down for 598.00. 36 months/1500/yr.
#11454 of 11920 BMW 335 Lease Rates
Sep 18, 2011 (5:21 pm)
What are the current money factor, residual %, and other incentives for the 2011 335i (Sedan) and 2011 335d. Term is 36 months and 10k miles per year. I am a current BMW owner.
I am seeing $1,000 bonus cash (loyalty) and $750 dealer cash. Is there also a reduction in the money factor for a returning customer?
How does the $3,500 ECO credit work on the BMW 335d - is this a discount? I typically can get a deal $750 to $1,000 above invoice - so can I subtract the $3,500 from that price?

Sep 19, 2011 (5:58 pm)
The money factor is .00190 and for a 36 month lease with 10,000 miles per year the residual is 61%. You should be looking for $1,500 behind invoice then the $3,500 ECO credit, then the $750 bonus cash and the loyalty can be used as $1,000 or to reduce the money factor by .00030. The mark up from M.S.R.P. to invoice is 7% on any BMW. So if the M.S.R.P. is $54,350 your selling price should be $43,795.00 if you use the loyalty off the selling price.
