From what I read you seem to be the person to ask. I drive a 1998 Town Car, recently I had the pleasure of being a passenger as well as taking a 2007 530xi for a drive and absolutley love this vehicle. I have always owned and have never leased. My nephew who always leases says he wants to drive a new car every few years, my son on the other hand says I will never own anything if I lease. I checked to see what my payments would be with $11,000.00 down and they would still be around $832.00 per month! what would you recommend to someone who has never leased? I drive my owm vehicle about 10,000 miles a year because I have a company car, but I cannot use it when not working, please help it you can

BMWFS posts their guidelines on normal wear and tear on the web. Typically anything less than 2" is fine.

Hi everyone! I just have a quick question. I am looking at leasing a 2007 525Xi, 10,000 miles a year for 36 months. The MSRP is $49,795. I have a trade-in worth around $4000, (which is fully pain off). Is is possible to have a monthly paymet around $550???, and what should be a fair Cap value for the car?
Any help would be great,

Here are the details on a recent quote:
BMW 530Xi, 36 Months, 12k Miles
Sale Price: $53,490
Residual: $34,267 (62.0%)
Money Factor: 2.6000 ????
Location: Bay Area
No Past Lease Experience
Called me and told me I need 4,000 Security + 2,500 down, or BMWFS says no deal, does that make sense?
Also can you explain "Money Factor" and why mine is off by a factor of 1000 to all the other posts?
Apr 27, 2006 (11:33 am)
so, lets look at this for example (I;m in the market)
$52,000 buy price
.00225 money factor
$18,000 trade in on my Audi (i own outright)
Am I looking at $340ish on a 36mo lease?
#609 of 3945 Residual & Money Factor
Apr 28, 2006 (2:01 pm)
Just talked to the dealer and he stated that as of May 1 the following will be in place for a 36 month lease with 15K miles per year on a 550i.
Residual will go from 59% to 58%
MF will go from .00230 to .00255
Residual will go from 60% to 59%
MF will stay at .0028
Is this in line with what others are getting or is this guy just trying to get me to buy this weekend?

I desparately need some help!
Could you provide me with the money factor and residual values for the 5 series, as well as the 3 series for May?
I am not sure if I want the 5 or the 3 series at this time.
Could you give me a break down?
'06 525i; '06 5301
'07 525i; '07 530i
Please provide the #'s for a 24 and 36 months lease. Thank you so much for your help!!!

I am new to leasing but I have been following these posts for a while now. I am looking to lease a 530 xi in the next few months and I do have a few questions for the group:
1) Every post encourages getting the "base money factor", but how can I be sure that's what I'm getting?, i.e. is there any independent verification?
2)The money factor for the 2006 (~.140) is much less than what I have seen for 2007 (~.225). Do those change as the months go on, i.e. is it based on interest rates alone, is is there some supply and demand factor thrown in?
3)Exactly what is negototiable and what is set in stone during the lease process? My understanding is that residual is set by someone else, but what aspects are available for "discussion" with the dealer?
Am looking to lease probably some time in the summer.
