#246 of 2375 Leased 2006 X5 4.4i yesterday!
Jul 14, 2006 (6:50 am)
Thanks again to everyone for your input and feedback. It was really helpful! So I went to the BMW dealer (LifeQuality BMW, Brooklyn) expecting that I would be underwhelmed by the 06 X5 after recently test-driving the 06 ML-350. I knew the ML had some updated features/options that the current X5 didn't offer (i.e. no iPod connector with Nav). Well, I was sorely wrong. The X5 is a great truck! Wow, driving the 4.4 was really something and had me hooked immediately. And the interior was just really sharp. Yes, the ML had more updated gadgets/electronics but it wasn't enough to keep me away from the X5. It is being built and will be ready mid-August. We await the delivery day anxiously!

I was wondering what sort of deal you were able to come out with. If you leased what were the numbers you were able to achieve or if you financed waht sort of APR? And is there an extra charge to have a X5 built for you?

Everything is going very well, thanks jefhack. If you're in the market for a 2006 BMW X6 you are in luck. BMW recently enhanced this truck's lease program. If you were to lease a 2006 X5 4.4 through BMW Financial Services right now for 36 months with 12,000 miles per year, its buy rate lease money factor and residual value should be .00150 and 57%, respectively. At first glance, one might say "How is this enhanced, this money factor is worse than it was in June." Well the answer is that BMW introduced new dealer cash on the '06 X5. On the 4.4i model, it has $2,500 dealer cash that can be used in conjunction with BMW FS' special lease program. Make sure to take this dealer cash into account when negotiating your truck's capitalized cost. It will make a big difference. BMW's advertised lease payment for the X5 3.0i dropped from $505 per month for 36 months in June all the way to $439 per month for 24 months in July!

Congratulations on your order, jefhack. Make sure that you take advantage of the new incentives that are available on the X5. You should be able to do so since you have not physically taken delivery of your truck yet.

Hello milti. Manufacturers do not charge any extra to order vehicles. Having said this, most dealers are willing to sell vehicles that they already have in inventory at a larger discount than vehicles that they have to order. There are two main reasons for this. The first is that dealers have to pay floorplan interest on vehicles that they have in stock. The sooner they sell vehicles that they already have, the sooner they can stop paying interest on them. The second reason is as the old saying goes, a bird in hand is worth two in the bush. Dealers would rather finalize deals ASAP than risk having them fall apart as the consumer they are working with waits for their ordered vehicle to arrive.

#254 of 2375 3.0 Lease deal?
Jul 22, 2006 (5:10 pm)
Can anybody give me specifics on this ad, ie car options and terms? I was offered today a 36 mo lease deal on a 2006 3.0 with only auto and cd changer....msrp was $45,400, negotiated down to $43,400, with $6500 upfront (includes sales tax), payment came to $590!!! Not a good deal at all, and now I see this ad for a 24 mo lease at $434/month. Why the huge difference??
