#1904 of 4278 2006 535xi - purchase,current car, lease current car or lease 2009?
Jun 09, 2008 (3:26 pm)
We would like to continue with the same make and model BMW if my company can support decision. If the economics support are justified, with the “Extended Warranty”, we would consider continuing with the same 2006 car.
This is the information that I have to date on the existing car.
- They are holding a security deposit of $749.00 which gets credited back to us less “Excess wear & Tear” and excess miles. The car has been inspected and the “Excess wear & Tear” cost/charge is $100.00 when turned in. The car has 36,303 miles on it which exceeds the 36,000 total allowance. Additional miles at $.20/mile.
- Lease is up 8/6/08
- Buyout on contract states $34,763.40 + sales tax total = $37,805.20
- Cost of extended warranty for 6 years or 100,000 miles is $3,670.31. Current warranty goes to 50,000 miles.
- Total buyout with warranty $41,475.51.
- Mfg rebate program thru July 3rd on this model is $6,900. With this total buy out, including extended warranty fee & sales tax is $33,822.15.
- They will finance this amount no money down at 5.9%; 60 month term is $653.46/month, 48 months $794.17 and 36 months is $1,029.23.
- To release same car for 36 months and 12,000 miles/year is $931.57/month.
What is the anticipated value in 6 years of the 2006 car?
We need to investigate lease cost of new car next.
Can anyone provide the facts and figures on 2009 BMW 535 XI

I am in Southern California (Pasadena) and just leased a 528i and was able to get a deal for basically $1,100 below invoice. Here are the specifics:
Base MSRP: 44,300
Premium: 2, 300
Invoice MSRP: 41,030
I was able to get my 528i for $45,631, which is about $1,100 below the invoice cost. Essentially, I told them that I would split the premium package credit with them, which is $2,095, and that I would pay invoice for everything else. I had two different dealerships in the LA area meet that deal. I did a two year lease at 10,000 miles per year.
Let me know if you have any questions.

I noticed the residuals are much worse now than they were in Dec. I got a 528i at 73% residual vs. 67% now.
However, comparing the competition you have to be careful. Lexus looks great because the lease RATE is very very low (interest) but the residuals are horrible. BMW has had higher residuals but much higher interest rates.

Jun 13, 2008 (6:15 am)
I think you made a typo and the inceptions are $1749. doesn't look like a bad deal considering residuals went down alot since Feb. when I bought a similarly equipped 528xi (except I got the xenons as well) and my lease is for 12K/36 months. I am paying slighly less, but I got the $2500 dealer cash. My sale price BEFORE the trunk cash was $50300 so......

To get the lower money factor, we did MSDs..so the inceptions include that..hence the higher amt
We were hoping to push the dealer a little more for a better monthly payment, seeing that business seems to be slow...any ideas on where to squeeze a little more out of them...I dont think BMW is offering any incentives now

The deal looks reasonable given the same comments on residuals. I got a 528i in Dec, $52k list.(paid around $48500 including $1000 rebate) .$1800 out the door, $600/month (including 7% sales tax).
