Wow, Thanks for both responses.
Randy, Yes, let's put our heads together. email me. With the support of folks like sharmabmw we can do great things.
8 good points. I'll start working on them. Yes, I'd love to do Euro Delivery (we did this with the 328 - ended up in Italy. But w/ the 3 year old,.....)
Here's a note I received from a broker through email.
You didn't tell me how much down payment so I just figured the lease up with $5000 down.
2005 BMW X3 3.0i in black and black leather, automatic, premium, sport, privacy glass and satellite radio preparation.
The MSRP is $40720. Your lease payment is $323.26 plus tax for 36 months.
I will send him the points made above and report back.
Where do I find a lease calculator?

I will email you about negotiation...
How much of the downpayment is for cap reduction, if my math is right you are putting about 3500 towards capreduction. the rest are fees and first month payment etc. Am I right?
I also put together a spread sheet to calculate lease payments and to break down dealer quotes. I will send that across as well. I would post the spread sheet here but there no file post feature avaialble.
#833 of 1854 Acquisition fee & destination charge

Is the "destination charge" of $695 noted on the sticker and on Edmunds pricing tool different from the "acquisition fee" of $625 (or more)?

The destination charge is part of the MSRP and the invoice price..
The acquisition fee is charged by the bank on a lease.. It is a financing charge that is only applicable to leases.

I’m on the opposite coast and soliciting business is a no no on Edmunds. Cali is a hot bed for aftermarket products in general. Most companies are based in your neck of the woods.
Just some advice, do some research and see if you can locate a reputable shop, product and pricing info in your area. After getting the numbers and a product that suits your needs take it back to your dealer and see if they’ll beat or match the deal. A good dealer will work with you once you’ve sourced this out, you may get a sweet deal and the warranty to back it up. Sometimes the extra leg work pays off. Good luck!!!
