A dealer that won't give you a sale price isn't a dealer you should be working with.
Best thing to do is not play the monthly payment game.
Here are the June rates for most BMWs including the 7-series. Assuming you qualify for the lowest rates possible, you need to negotiate the lowest sale price possible, ask for the money factor and residual used in calculating your lease. Then plug that info into a lease formula/calculator. It may be to your best interest in doing a little research regarding leasing before you pull the trigger. It could save you thousands.

Agree with gforce11. Dealer has to share the capital cost (eg. selling price) with you. 11k off is not bad...but you are still leaving at least 2k on the table. Push for a low money rate (at least .0020)...anything higher, the dealer is making profit on the lease. Assume your residual is in the 66-67% range assuming a two year lease with like 12k annual mileage.
I always use the following site for calculating the lease payment.

IMO...you got a pretty good deal. Just off the numbers you gave...seems like you got them to sell it to you at invoice...and give you a good majority of the $5k dealer incentive....didn't spec it exactly...but assume they kept maybe $1k...maybe a bit less.
In terms of the rest...the only thing that it seems like they nickeled you on was adding $200 profit to acquistion fee and the .00005 to your money rate (I believe their buy rate was .0020). so...it was like they added 12 tenths of a percent to your interest....
You might of considered increasing your security deposit to buy down the money rate a bit more...but again...given its only 2 years...you probably only would have reduced your monthly another 70ish bucks or so.
But all things considered....I think you got a good deal (especially if you got the exact car you wanted!)....

Not the best...see previous post.
The 3 yr lease is a better option and the MF is high.
I put $1.7k down with a MF of .00200 on a 3yr w/ 12k miles and the same options for a payment of $1,116.00

36 month lease $798/month
Returning BMW customer, given lower finance rate
out of pocket $3800 includes taxes of approx $1800, first month, bank fee, etc
Does this seem like a good deal?

I'm assuming you mean Cap Cost and not MSRP which is circa $89K
So far sounds good. I personally would put less down and have a higher monthly payment. What's you MF?

I meant MSRP - this is the 750i, not the iL.
I have 2 quotes so far, one is MF .00180 and monthly payment of $895 without tax, and $969 with tax.(would only offer 2year lease)
The other quote is $798,(3 years) $814 (2 years) I assume the MF is the same, as I'm turning in a BMW & they're both offering reduced MF. I'm waiting for the details from dealer on cap cost.
I appreciate feedback, as I have to make a decision quickly.

the 3 yr is a good deal. MF looks good. Why so much down? Because it's a 750i and your MSRP is $78K you have a lot of room to lower the price. What's the cap cost?
FYI - i picked up a 750li two months ago - MSRP $91K and got the car for $78.5K.
#172 of 599 750i Need opinions ASAP. Thanks
