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.

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).

Thanks for all the info, everyone...we're definitely trying to squeeze every dollar that we can from the dealer..any more tips would be great
Does anyone have the residuals and money factor for May/June for 528xi?
This would be helpful to doublecheck that we are getting a decent deal
money factor .00171 ( we were told that this is for MSDs)
Residual = 69% ( 10K 24 mths)
Also is it true if I go over the allotted miles, I can call BMWFS and get a courtesy price of $.16 per mile..the dealer said that it's a 1 time and we have to do it before 5 mths of the lease running out..otherwise its $.20 a mile

It depends on where your at in the country. In Dallas BMW sales are through the roof. The economy isn't near as negatively affected as say, California.
The region your in, has a lot to do with how hungry dealers are.
