#852 of 2558 2008 X5 3.0i sport package vs premium package
Mar 17, 2008 (9:38 pm)
I welcome anyone's thoughts and opinions about which package I should go with. I seems like dealer's lots have units that contain more optional packages than I care or want to have. If I decide on either one of the mentioned package ONLY, will I get resistance from salesman? Thanks in advance.
I like the Bluetooth wireless option with the BMW Assist. Any opinion on the Bluetooth option?
How about comments on the various leather options or should I go with the least expensive napa?

Bluetooth is standard
Napa is most expensive leather. I chose Nevada simply because of the cooling seats and massaging seats which are great for long journies

For a lease, is the term "initial cap cost" the same as the actual price of the car?

#859 of 2558 2008 BMW 4,8i X-5 Lease
Apr 07, 2008 (5:10 pm)
I am finalizing on a 3 year 15,000 mi lease for an 2008 X-5 4.8i. I won't list out the options but the MSRP is 66,625 and the invoice is 61,245. I negotiated the selling price to 62,500, roughly 1,250 over invoice. While I asked for a .0021 money factor to be used, the sales rep has told me they have to use .0022 or the business manager makes absolutley nothing. The residual is 37,540. No money down they are giving me a lease price of 985.
I was thinking of going back to them and telling them if we are using the .022 money factor then I am willing to offer 62,250, basicially 1K over invoice.
Any opinions on this deal ?

Can't believe this:
* Dealer sells you a $62K car and tells you they don't make anything
* You shell out $62K for a car and you ask for a $250 discount
But we all know we don't buy a BMW thinking it is worth 62K, but we buy just because it is a BMW. If common sense was used, you should buy a $42K Highlander and put $20k in your pocket. But common sense is uncommon and most people (including me) don't have it at all.
