#77 of 511 Pre-owned BMW Z3 (2003 3.0i)
Dec 17, 2004 (6:32 pm)
Just picked up a pre-owned 2003 Z4 3.0i manual with 6300 miles on the clock. It is not fully loaded up, but has the neccessaries. Paid $33k before sales tax. Spotless body, not a scratch. I've trawled www.z4um.com and other forums, no major issues with the 2003 and my car has none of the usual wear items (e.g. low front panel under engine gets damaged).
Happy & safe driving all.

Just purchased (Dec 7th) an 03 Z4, loaded with every option available and 17k miles for 32400. Car was in perfect condition, not so much as a scratch around the ignition. They're a little small for me but great for my wife. They had a few 04's left also so there are still some deals out there.

Is BMW offering anything on the 05 Z4s? My local dealer has 15 sitting in the snow but doesn't seem very aggressive about moving them. What kind of deals have you been able to negotiate?

...... In Pa, right..?
You should be able to purchase any Z4 for $700/$800ish over invoice, minus any rebates and incentives that far north and this time of the year ........

Thanks, Terry. You are correct - PA. There are still a few 2004s around. Is dealer cash on the 3.0 still $6500? What extra discount is warranted on a 3.0 for a demo with 5000 miles on it?

No incentives on the '05s right now.. amazingly enough... Just low money factors on the leases..
Any '04 they have... would have been "punched" when the incentives ended... IOW, they have already collected the $6500 incentive... and, the warranty is ticking...
If it were me.... I'd want that demo for invoice price minus the $6500 incentive minus $1000 more.. Typically, most dealers won't take less than invoice minus the incentive... which is still a pretty good deal.. $10K off MSRP?
EDIT: INVOICE minus incentive... NOT MSRP minus incentive.. just a reminder...
#85 of 511 Z4 for the summer

I am getting ahead of myself a bit, but i am looking to lease a 2.5 Z4 this summer. I want to get it sometime between June and August.
Can anyone give me a ballpark idea of what i'll be paying. i figure i'll get no options other than leather and steptronic. i definitely want to stay under $500/month for 36 months and 12k miles. i actually hope i can be closer to $400.
i know it'll be hard to estimate what incentives there will be in the summer. Will i be better off waiting till september and hoping to catch another huge incentive deal like there was last year?

Considering the deals the last two years... I wouldn't jump on one in the summer... unless the lease incentives are really good.. Sometimes, it is a wash, though... Once they throw the big cash at them, the money factors rise, and the residuals drop..
It is a simpler choice if you are purchasing... wait for the big incentives... they had them in '03 and '04.. Nothing would point to them being able to move them without incentives late this year, either..
As a reference... right now, a 3yr/36K lease would be about $450/mo.+ tax.. with 1st pymt, $625 acquisition fee, and security deposit upfront.. MSRP $37500, selling price $35,500.
