"I can change the money down to whatever, I just like lowering my payments up front."
And then if the car is stolen (not recovered), or totaled, you lose that entire down payment.
#4938 of 5608 2013 328i xdrive lease question
Feb 24, 2013 (10:22 am)
I need your help please! I am looking to lease a 2013 328i xdrive and I got the following offer from my local BMW dealer. Do you think it's a good deal?
MSRP: $48,300 (btw, I noticed that the dealer's sticker price is $350 lower then the price I get from bmwusa.com when I build the same exact car)
36-month lease/15k miles per year
$605 (and change) per month is what they offered me. They want me to pay them a little over $1,000 when signing the lease. They said that's the 1st month's payment + taxes and fees. I live in the Chicago area and I was told that taxes on car leases in IL are higher than most other places in the country. Thanks in advance!

The turn-key program is for BMW customers whose lease is within 30+/- days of the return date AND finances a new BMW with BMWFS, is eligible to receive a 1st payment credit up to $500 towards their new BMW.

I'm not necessarily interested in a BMW, but am curious about something you said that I'm trying to figure out. If a particular vehicle has cash incentives to lease, does that mean that those insentives should be deducted after the price of the car has been negotiated?

No. You should include them in your negotiations. Dealers competitive markets might be looking to make $1000 profit on a car. If you know the invoice amount, holdback and incentives you can figure out the dealers true cost to make a competitive offer and stick to it.
The exceptions are manufacturer discounts that are special to you. If you have a unique $750 coupon from BMW then you can take that off after all negotiations.

#4944 of 5608 Is this a good deal
Feb 27, 2013 (4:04 pm)
My girlfriend would like to lease this car.....
2013 328i Black Sapphire Metallic, cold weather package (ZCW), premium package (ZPP), BMW Assist (6NL).
MSRP 42,645...dealer offer $38,350
36 month lease with .00130 LMF....we will put down $5000 which will leave a balance of $26,866 at the end of the lease.....Dealer said the residual value is 63%
Any information would be greatly appreciated...if you need more info hopefully I can provide it
The $5,000 down was from a trade in and cash (50/50) in an attempt to get her payments as close to $300 a month as possible. They were able to get it to $347 but no lower. Another person suggested MSD's ?

I would never leave money down on a lease to get lower payments. Hang onto cash and put toward payments. Car totaled or stolen say goodbye to that down payment.

Thanks CAR MAN for your help!
One additional question:
My dealer is saying that the residual is 63% for a 36 month / 10k miles per year lease on a 2013 328i sedan. Based on your comments here, I thought you said that the residual can be as high as 65% for that combo. RidewithG is reporting 60% for the sedan in February (to which I assume I add +2% for the 10k lease). Can you please confirm?
