I'm not able to reproduce the wonderful payments that people have reported here. Am I doing something wrong in my calculation? For instance, in sicce1's deal, the selling price is $40,970, tax is 7%, residual is 59%, MF is 0.00115 and $0 down. Monthly payment of $509 (3 years)
Residual is 40,970 x 59% = 24172
Depreciation is (40,970 - 24,172)/36 = 466.61
Finance is (40970 + 24172) x 0.00115 = 74.91
Total without tax $541.52
Total with tax $579.42

I'm betting there was a trade or some sort of rebate included in the deal,

Erh, I've never leased and I don't know nothing about leasing...cars! But it looks odd if the sale price is x amount and you want to add more to it for financing. Looks like the finance total is 65,142. Is that right? Is the depreciation supposed to be a double whammy?

It's just a calculation to get the finance charge... The two numbers (cap cost + depreciation) are added together, to get an average amount financed...
When the money factor constant is calculated, it is halved, to make up for the two amounts being added together...

Thanks. So the weighted average of those numbers is inherent in the MF! Hmmm...now that makes me think how do they get the MF? But not going to mess with leasing...
Please anyone bought (not lease) a 328i recently??? Need to know who paid what and where for what year 328i with prem. Is my nice salesman's quote high at $42.6k otd. Thanks.

I think that is high, the Money Factor for Oct, is .00135, of course this is with top tier credit. But $608/m is high...
Oct 13, 2012 (3:52 pm)
MSRP is 42k. Can get it for $36.5k. Is this a good deal?

I tried looking for a 2012 335xi coupe but the dealers seem to be sold out--
Stopped by and test drove the xi today and the salesman worked up the following--let me know your thoughts--
MSRP--- 56445 ( 335xi coupe / premium pak/ nav/ m sports pak with 18 inch wheels/ )
Residual : 60%
For 15,000 miles/ 36 months and $3000 down ( all taxes , fees, and 1st months payment ), it will be $645 a month...
Is this decent/ bad : can I move the needle lower?
Thanks for reading
