JMCBMW - How did you get them to counter you? My last call which was 2.5 months prior to lease end, they said, BMW FS does not negotiate residual values. I am not three weeks left on a 2007 BMW 530i - and want to figure out how to do. How did you ask the question?
The dealer has NO incentive to work in your favor. If the car is in good shape, low miles, etc., he would rather buy from BMW FS at auction rate since they get first shot, then certify and make a quick $5000+.

I didn't have to counter. They have been calling me (almost too much) and lowered the price 3 times total. They are calling it a "rebate" I believe it's only on the X3 however. My residual was something crazy like 75-77% when I leased 2 years ago which got me a great lease deal but they are getting hit on the turn in. Also, if I return the X3 there is a special $1500 new lease incentive on any new BMW. Go figure. I'm still trying to decide between a 2009 loaded 3-series or a 2009 loaded 5-series exec demo w/ 11K miles for almost the same payment. The only downside (and i guess it's minor) is that the 2009 5-series has the old navigation system.

I am in a HUGE CRUNCH. I NEED TO BUY A NEW CAR BEFORE JULY 6. I have a 750 Credit Score.
I saw the 2006 CPO has 0.9% financing on the 525i
I saw that there is a 5k incentive to buying the 2007, 2008.
Which one would you guys go for?
I am not looking to spend anymore then 35k?
+ I want the extended maintainence program (up to 100k) what is the price on this?
Should I wait for JULY 4?

HELLO WHAT IS THE PRICE FOR THE EXTENDED MAINTAINENCE FOR 2007 2008 528i? ?WHat is the best you have gotten?
#3340 of 4113 Re: PRICE FOR EXTENDED MAINTAINENCE SERVICE [speedy19]
Jun 23, 2009 (5:13 pm)
I just bought a CPO 2007 530i from the dealer in Greenwich, CT, paid $36,200 for the vehicle, with 24K miles on it. The car is flawless, has Premium, Cold, Prem. Sound , Sports and Nav. I ordered the extended warranty which extends the service warrany by two years. Cost: $1675. So figure that's 850 per year cost. I thought it was well worth it, just in case.
Good luck, and let me know how you make out.
