#711 of 2269 Re: X5 3.0 or 4.8i lease rate for April [tg75]

Did you inquire about a BMWFS loyalty discount? How was your experience during the inspection of the car you returned. How many inspections did you have to go through?
On your SAV, what was MSRP and your agreed price? Then you'll know how close you were from invoice price. I thought money factor was .00210 for April.
What is your tax rate in Raleigh, NC and did you pay taxes up front?
I'm in the process of dealing for my 3rd BMW from same dealer and salesman (2008 X5 3.0si) and second time around with BMWFS. My specs...
Rear Climate Package
Gray Nevada Leather
Invoice Price via Edmund's $49,105
Told salesman my price...$800 over invoice. Does anyone think he'll make a deal? I welcome any comments.

Yes, I inquired about discounts and they mentioned the lower MF. I tried for the lower .0021 MF but was told they couldn't go lower. From other dealerships in NC, I was gettting quotes using .00255, so I didn't push it.
Tax rate is 3% in NC and is incorporated in the monthly payment. I paid roughly $1,000 over invoice. The down payment break out was:
1st months payment($781) + Fees (472) + Tax ($14) = $1,267.
manneydom, I think you have good shot with $800 over invoice. I didn't return my other car, so can't help you with the inspection process.

This site, from my understanding, is to share buying experiences and consult on lease numbers. I think you may find a wealth of information on x5world.com. Try your query there
#716 of 2269 money factor and residual for April 2008
Apr 12, 2008 (4:09 pm)
I think my car salesman is trying to clean me out. To think that this is going to be my 3rd BMW purchased from him. Please help. X5 3.0si agreed price is $1,250 over invoice. I want to lease for 3 years 15,000 miles per year. He is presenting me an offer of money factor .0025, residual 58%, and acq fee $875. There is no down payment and monthly is $889.40 (taxes included---Cook County, Illinois 7.75%). At pickup, need to pay $1197.40.
I have followed this thread. I have seen MF to be .0021 and residual from 58-60%. Any comments? I countered with MF .0021 and residual 58%. Do the numbers make sense?
For 3 years 12,000 miles/year he offered MF .0025 and residual 60%.
I will truly, truly appreciate anyone's thoughts.

R Cli Pkg
36/12 - no money down
722.00 including tax
I know they hosed me in inceptions, but I was so tired of complaining and arguing I just gave in. The car isn't delivered yet. Is this a decent lease and if not when the car arrives can I still cancel out of it.
#718 of 2269 X 5 Lease experience Update
Apr 24, 2008 (12:57 pm)
I just learned that BMW is giving away the premium pkg. so now my lease is with all the before mentioned options:
690.00 per month including taxes 36/12 zero down

Giving away the premium package???? Does that mean $2500 big ones off vehicles already equipped with this very necessary option? I'm in los angeles and have about 10 dealerships competing for my business, would I be better off using the end of the month negotiating benefits or the potential for new lease deals (ie. improved MF of loyalty program people) that may come May1st?
#720 of 2269 Ending lease early to upgrade
Apr 25, 2008 (8:14 am)
We have a 3 series sedan which we like a lot, so much in fact we want to upgrade early. We are 1 year into a 3 year lease. Does anyone have an opinion on if this is possible and if so, am I going to take a bath to get into an X5?
Thanks in advance
