I came across residuals for the 328 in these threads, but I am interested in the 335i. So what are the resids on say a 10k/year lease? 12k/year lease?
Also, what is the official MF on same car?
Apr 23, 2013 (2:48 pm)
Tech, prim, cold pack, metallic paint
Sale price 44000
575/month x36 months everything included.
Is this a good deal?

trading in during a lease is a double-whammy!Dealer screws you on the trade-in price AND you bear the risk if the new one gets totaled so I'm thinking a definite no-no if the trade-in is worth north of 1000;

Which is the best site to get invoice prices? KBB seems lower than Edmunds by a few hundreds and msn has its own value-confusing!

I'm ready to start the process of leasing a 2013 328i sedan. Better to do it now and take advantage of "end of the month" deals or wait until the May lease numbers are out? Any idea what they'll be? Thanks for an awesome and incredibly valuable service.

I was just at a BMW dealership yesterday. Last month (April) there was a manufacturer rebate, but none this month. Probably because they assume people will be out and about spending their tax refund dollars. Salesman will ping me when May's programs come out. I would suggest you do the same?

2013 activehybrid 3
36month 10k miles
Don't remember exact selling price but with 1000.00 out of pocket it was 585 with tax included .the program was a 3500 Eco credit with 1000.00 lease cash and 750.00 in loyalty.They now have 500.00 credit towards first payment and a 1000.00 credit for a ultimate drive event .So the out of pocket should go to 0 and my payment should be reduced as if I put 500 of real cash .That should bring my payment to approx 570 with tax. I can put the multiple sec deposit of 3850 to bring the payment to 525.00 which I might as I get that 3850 back at the end if the lease .Is this a good deal and is the 3850 tied up for the lease worth the 45.00 less per month ?

Just wanted to thank the members of this forum for providing so much useful information, all of which helped negotiate a pretty good price on a 335i xDrive. Especially want to thank car man, kyfdx, kromix, jasonmdbmw. Armed with all the information this forum provided, I emailed 5 dealers--telling them the car I wanted to buy and what I was willing to pay; if they were willing to sell at that price we could close the deal same day, no fuss or haggling. Got an immediate positive response and made a deposit same day. Now awaiting delivery!
Btw, found a very good, straight-talking, honest salesman in D.C. area. If anyone needs a recommendation let me know. Would be happy to help out.
