In regards to your number they are way off..
The 2500 in rebates and 1000 for grad discounts how are they being applied.
What is the money factor? What is the residual percentage they are quoting you?
so the dealer is giving you $3500 in discounts, how is that being applied? Plus they want $3500 out of pocket? What insurance are they getting you to buy? How long is this lease for and how many miles a year?

Hi, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if I can get some help from this amazing forum. I'm looking to buy 320 w/ heated front seats, Nav, Power front seats - which bmwusa.com config quoted me $37670. I'm a grad student, and was hoping to get the lowest possible price. A lot of you have mentioned rebates and incentives - is this something that can be applied to everyone? or is it something that is only available to those who have participated in events? Can I also ask the dealer to apply these incentives/rebates? Also, I'm planning to pay in full at signing - would this affect the price of the vehicle at all? Also, anybody know a good dealer in the Bay Area? Thanks for all the help in advance.
#12025 of 12247 Lease on 328i retired loaner
Aug 19, 2013 (8:08 pm)
Does anyone have any experience with this? I have been told by the dealer that retired loaners qualify for new vehicle leasing programs (since they have never been titled). I am looking at a 328i sport line. However, the dealer is marking up the MF from .00121 to .00141 and not accepting the $1,000 build out incentive or $1,000 ultimate drive incentive. Is this to be expected? Or should I be fighting for the lower MF and one or both of the credits? Here is the current offer:
2013 328i Sport Line (fairly well optioned)
MSRP - $47,595
$910.95 mileage adjustment (has 6,600 miles on it)
Selling Price - $40,100
Residual - 28,122 61%
36 months/15k miles
4,000 down (includes paying 1,050 in fees out of pocket)
Payment of $353, but I think it can still be better.
Oh, and we are in Oregon, so no tax.
Any advice is appreciated.

Your best bet for getting the lowest price possible is to find a 2013 that is in stock with the features you want. If you want to order a 2014 to specs then the dealer will not the discount the car as much. Below are the cash incentives that I'm aware of.
$1,000 BMW Build-Out Credit: Available to anyone
$500 BMW Loyalty Cash: Current BMW Owners or Leasees only
$1,000 BMW Ultimate Driving Experience: Must have attended event and provided with code for use.
$1,000 Recent College Grad Incentive: Graduated within the previous 12 months OR you are eligible to graduate within the next 4 months and have a verifiable offer of employment.
It seems like you'd be eligible for the Build-Out Credit and College Grad Incentive if you've graduated from undergrad in the last 12 months or plan to graduate from grad school in 4 months which might be unlikely. Find a dealer that might be advertising a car at invoice or as close as possible and then negotiate applying whichever incentives you qualify for. If they are not quoting a price with that much of a discount then you need to ask for invoice or $500 above invoice, minus the incentives.
#12027 of 12247 Lease Rates Request for 328i Gran Turismo
Aug 22, 2013 (3:54 am)
Hoping that you see this message and can respond, Car Man.
Are there any August lease numbers available for the new 2014 328i GT? 36 months and 12k miles.
On another note, is there a reliable source anywhere on the internet for obtaining dealer holdback data and other hidden profits from the manufacturer? Is buying a Consumer Reports buyer report reliable? This is always a big question in our minds when we negotiate a new lease.

just a FYI, since the GT is brand new and just hitting the dealers, even if you could find holdbacks and such, I highly doubt any dealer would go lower than MSRP for a while, the GT. Until someone post other wise, to get a ballpark lease number, use .00127 for MF and 57%, this seems to be the standard for a 328i sedan.

Thanks for the clarification.
The dealer infact did order me a 2014 328i with the options I wanted. The car cost me $37,400. So im hoping on delivery they don't start to mess around with the numbers again since the 2014 is $250 more than 2013 model. And looking at the new residuals which are actually lower than the residual i got at 61%.

You're not going to get any break on a GT for a while.

Is this a good deal for a BMW 3 series?

Yes. That's a fabulous deal on a 2014 335xi, providing it is an out-the-door final price on a purchase. Way to go! (I bought a 335i sedan in May.) You'll need some of your negotiated savings to pay for future speeding tickets.
