#3415 of 3910 2012 535i Lease S. CA.
Mar 14, 2012 (1:33 pm)
Getting a 2012 535i in jet black/cinnamon brown with Prem, Sport, Nav, etc. w/ MSRP of $62045 at INVOICE (plus MACO and training fee ($500-$600 total)). 36 months, 10K miles per year with MF of 0.00185 and residual of 59%. With $2000 cap reduction plus the $1500 BMW lease cash, pmt is right at $700/mo including CA sales tax. BMW is also covering the last 2 pmts on my 2009 535i lease which expires mid May. Could I have done better?

$700/month is a great deal! Who is your salesperson? Do you mind sharing a contact info? Thank you!

In keeping with not divulging specific info on here, my advice is:
Know what the invoice price is: available online plus MACO and training fee = $560 in S. Ca.
MF is 0.00185 on a 36 mo lease and resid is 56% for 15K miles, 58% for 12K miles and 59% for 10K miles. Use a lease calculator (available online). You cannot go wrong. Look at the dealer websites to find the color combo you want as you may have better luck going directly to them rather than getting another dealer to trade for that car or ordering. Good luck!

does BMW historically lower the MF sometime in the spring?
#3419 of 3910 Deal on a 528xi and question on the 4cyl
Mar 15, 2012 (11:56 am)
Hi Car man, this is my first time writing in the forums and thank you in advance for any help.
I currently have a 2010 528 that is coming off lease in 3 months. I took out the new 2012 for a spin and it definitely has a different feel to it. Does anyone have any feedback on the steering and the new 4cyl turbo engine? Specifically, after owning for a while are they happy with it?
Second, this is the deal that Im currently working on an wondering if this is a good deal, they are also covering my last 3 months on my current lease (worth $1905):

The information you provide here is very helpful. I was able to figure out/calculate excatly the current (March) lease offer on 528i posted on www.bmwusa.com. Details as follows:
- $549*/month for 36 months
- 10,000 miles per year
While the residual (61%) and MF (0.00190) you provided are key elements, buyers must realize that the dealer contribution ($1,525) and lease credit ($1,500) must be taken into account. These are not mentioned on the BMW website, a dealer happened to mention it in their lease offer page.
If the buyer is not aware of this, then the dealer may use it to its advantage.
I will surely keep an eye on your posts so I can head out to the dealer well prepared.

As a follow on to this trail, does anyone know if residual values are the same across the entire BMW line up? I'm getting 59% on a 2012 550i. Sound right? 10K miles/year.
thanks in advance
#3423 of 3910 Is $500 over invoice a good deal on this 528 Xi?
Mar 19, 2012 (8:41 am)
I was able to get a salesman to agree to a selling price of $500 over invoice for a 2012 528Xi with tech package ($1685), premium package ($2050), sat radio w/ 1 year ($350), cold weather ($1320) and destination ($895).
The selling price was invoice ($51,535) plus $500 or $52,035. Is this a good deal? I struck this deal on Saturday the 17th in northern NJ.
Was this a good deal?

Sounds like a good deal to me. When I pull the trigger on my car, I hope to get it for no more than 500 over invoice. I am in north jersey also.
