I certainly do midnightfang. BMW Financial Services' March buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 Z4 3.0i with 12,000 miles per year are .00100 and 60%, respectively.
This car's money factor drops to .00070 for loyal customers.
When negotiating your lease on this car, make sure to take advantage of the $1,500 dealer cash that is currently available on it. If I was in the market for this car right now, I personally would shoot for a selling price of $500 to $1,000 over invoice minus the cash.

I am intrigued by the bmw advertised lease this month for the Z4 3.0 $399/24mo $2275down. Do you know what the MF and residual is for this lease? Because the car is selling at or close to invoice, can/should I do better than this (assuming the lease figures are advertised base on sticker)?

Hi bimmerfan8. I am familiar with the deal that you mentioned. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 24 month lease of a 2011 Z4 3.0 with 10,000 miles per year are .00150 and an astonishing 80%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers.
I suspect that you will indeed be able to negotiate a lower selling price than the one that was used to arrive at this car's advertised payment, which in turn would lower your car's payment assuming everything else stays the same.

#655 of 712 BMW Z4 S35i Lease -cost of options?
May 21, 2011 (9:23 am)
Hi Car Man,
I am on the verge of getting a BMW Z4 S35i based on their seemingly outstanding lease offer of $439/month for a 24 Month/12,000 mile lease. I am planning on special-ordering this car with options around $2k over MSRP. Giving a total MSRP of around $59k. The lease offer is based on an MSRP of approx $57k. She informed me that every $1k in options will cost $48 more per month in lease cost.
This doesnt seem right to me? If calculated using total MSRP, the money factor and residual, shouldnt the additional cost for options be much less?
Also, do you know if this offer will last past end of may?
Thanks so much

That's wrong.... $1000 less down (or higher cap cost) on the same vehicle would be around $45-$48/mo. more....
But, with a higher MSRP, you also get a higher residual And the residual for the Z435i is an incredible 79%....
So, even if you are paying full MSRP for the $2000 in options, the added depreciation is only $420 ($2000 X .21), divided by 24 months = $17.50/mo.. Add another $6.80/mo. for finance charge, and thats around $24/mo. + tax... If your price only increases $1800 for the $2K in options, knock $7.50/mo. off that...
One caveat.. if you are adding non-residualized accessories, then those will be very pricy on a 24 mo. lease.... as, you'll pay the full amount over the 24 months.. (just don't do it).
#657 of 712 2011 BMW Z4 30i Roadster
Jul 20, 2011 (2:38 pm)
Looking to lease a BMW Z4 30i Roadster. Current special is $399 + tax per month with $3,374 down, including first months payment. I was wondering how long it takes to order and receive the car cause the dealer only has one on the lot. Also is there any cash back for this month?
#658 of 712 Blast from the past
Jul 29, 2011 (1:54 pm)
This brings back memories...in 2006 I leased a base Z4 for an unbelievable rate...I remember the 24 month money factor was 0.00041 (0.98% interest rate) and the residual percentage was 72%. On a 37.3K car (negotiated to 33K with the dealer) the payments were $281/month...
I don't think this has ever happened since, has it?

now am told that nothing can be ordered - waiting for 2012 - 399 offer wont be available... there is some availability around other dealers - just have to find the right one - the lease is quoted for msrp of 52,300 so payments may go up or down based on the msrp of the actual car
