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

You are a guy after my own heart... You really know the ins and outs of a BMW lease...
There is about $4300-$4400 spread between MSRP and invoice, but when you add in the training fee and MACO, the spread is $3700-$3800.. Your discount is $2860. If there is any room there, that's the spot. If the stars aligned, you might get them to cut the price by another $500.
However, about 95% of the time, a BMW dealer will mark up the money factor and acquistion fee the maximum allowed.. Many dealers just won't write a lease at the base rate. As I'm sure you know, your deal is at the base rate..
There is some pressure on the dealer. He doesn't know if BMW will continue this lease deal for another month (it's been 4 months already), and if they don't, they'll probably put $5K trunk money on the car, and kill the lease deals. Believe me, the dealer knows that it's a lot easier to lease a car for $500/month, than sell it for $47K.. That said, there is probably a 99% chance that this is as good as you are going to get.
I love the MSDs, and that you made the $600 Cap reduction to get under $450 (saving you from making another $350 in security deposits). Taking the $1000 bonus, instead of the .0003 MF reduction was another good move. You really did your homework.
I would jump on it.

Thank you so much for your input. I am not crazy about red color (mostly my wife is not in love with it; she says it looks like "I am playing for the other team ". The car has no Nav and no ZPP (WTF?). But the deals sounds good and I will probably go for it. Thanks again.
#665 of 702 Please Update - Need Help with November Lease
Oct 29, 2011 (10:08 am)
I have to return 2008 lease in 10 days. I know, procrastinating cost me early return when BMWFS deal was much better.
This forum has always been helpful with previous lease deals (2006 Z4 and 2008 Z4 SI) I want to lease again 2011 or 2012 3.0I with Premium, Cold, Sport. Currently in Oregon and finding little to no availability.
Do I really have to fly to CA and drive back?

Is a 36 months with 12k miles/yr
We went to the dealership today (Macon, GA), my wife and I have a credit score over 740.
They pull out our credit and after that the rewrite all the lease, the seller told us that our payment was $ 585 + $ 1800 upfront and he say we couldn't make security deposits.... I really don't understand why they change the deal.
Is true the the money factor in BMW is always 0.00210 even with a good credit?

Anyone have any information on residual % and MF on a 2012 Z4 sDrive 28i? Any idea if the residual is different for a manual transmission? Looking for a higher mileage lease (15 or 18k). Also, anyone know if the terms get better as we get closer to convertible season? I know that no one has a magic eightball, but just curious based on previous experience. Thanks
