#8541 of 12228 BMW 335xi Loaded
Jan 30, 2008 (10:10 pm)
I am in the process of negotiating a lease on the above 335xi. MSRP on the loaded model I am looking at is 52,130; They are basing the lease on a discounted price of 50,610. With 2500 down, sales tax at 4426, 210 estimated tax, plus 50 documentation, estimated balance due is 52,796.
Lease quotes are $879 (24 mo.) and $806 (36 mo.). I have never done a lease, and do not know whether I am being taken or not. They call the discount a preferred customer (am trading in previous purchased 2002 325), and it is supposedly a "Costco Customer price too...", but it still seems like the same 3% discount I was quoted online at other dealers...so am wondering if there is any room on this.
BTW, the car I am looking at is now at Oxnard shipping destination, awaiting transit to Washington State...so it is not "on the lot".
Would appreciate any advice or input. At this point, I have a $1000 refundable deposit in wiht them to get the car shipped up.

See my deal at #8410, 8414, with comment from a host at 8416. The $ 597/mo. includes sales tax at 8.25%. You can do a lot better, but you don't state the MF or residual. The MF could well be lower on Friday, 1st day of a new month. The Fed has lowered Fed Funds by 1.25% during the last week. Your discount is too low and the MF too high. Use Internet sales departments for better results. I ordered from Pacific BMW, Glendale, CA.

#8546 of 12228 Price paid report - 328i
Jan 31, 2008 (7:59 pm)
OK, I bought a fairly basic car today --- no leather, no butt warmer, no packages. Not even metallic paint! None of this was really by design; I wanted a BMW and I prefered black and this was just what they had....
Anyway, I paid $120 over invoice PLUS $380 advertising fee PLUS $100 processing fee (so really I should say I paid $600 over strict invoice if I'm being honest!).
I haven't had second thoughts about passing over those bells & whistles. I wouldn't mind iPod connectivity, but I can get that PLUS bluetooth by buying a replacement stereo from Crutchfield for $300+/-, saving a lot (and anyway they didn't have it to give me!).

#8548 of 12228 335i Coupe - February Money Factor?
Feb 01, 2008 (12:37 pm)
My first post here and sorry if this is a redundant question :
1. What is the BMW Financial Services' February money factor rate for a fully loaded 2008 335i Coupe? (I live in LA if that has anything to do with it)
2. Do they really offer the best lease terms on this car?
Thanks in advance for any input.

base money factor is determined by BMW depending on the particular model and lease term.
My dealer informs me that February money factor and residuals are the same as January.
Best lease terms through BMWFS.

Thank you for the information ksu19.
This is for a 36 month - 10K lease on a fully loaded 355i Coupe (MSRP $49,450). I am quoted a 0.0026 money factor with no security deposit and .00245 with a security deposit. I was hoping with the latest cuts in Prime rate, they would offer a better money factor for the month of February. Does it not make sense or is it too early for the recent cuts to show any effects on the consumer lending side?
I guess I should kick myself for not buying this back in the summer of last year
