the teaser rates have like 3-4K down or cap reduc.....no one should ever lease IMO with more than fees and first month down, why, id youhave the cash today, why not keep the 3K in your checking act and pay the extra $30/month or whatever.....anyway the best i got is on a 535 36/12 with just fees down, incl first(approx 2K out the door) and $800/month plus tax, 58500 sticker.
my current 2008 535 with a 56K sticker was 1900 out the door 30/12, for $700 with tax, so this is a huge increase..i also learned as of this month you better have top tier, like 720+ or the rates are much higher!!!

car man-does this sound like a decent deal?

namesean, the 528i was surprisingly quick. The base engine now has 240 hp, compared to last year's 230 hp. The ride was very smooth and responsive. The one I drove had premium and sport packages. Obviously, the 535i was quicker, but I was quite impressed with the 528's responsiveness. It's definitely worth taking a look at, although I just learned today they're going to hold the 528's from delivery, because of compression concerns. But regardless, they are here now.
BTW, in the end I decided to lease another 328i (2011) with premium and automatic, because I was offered forgiveness of the last 3 payments on my 2007 328i and my payment is almost identical to what I was paying on the 2007, which was $484 per month plus tax. I only put down the first month's payment, plus doc fees, and acquisition fee. The color I chose was the new DEEP SEA BLUE with beige leather interior. It's a beautiful and elegant combination.
