Yes I know it's a 2010. I like cheap money. The tire and wheel is from BMW and not a third party warranty company. I think it is well worth the investment based on this experience and my previous 5 BMW's. Don't forget this covers me for 5 years including tires that are replaced. One pothole along with a damaged wheel and tire and you'll think otherwise.Here is a link to BMW regarding the policy. http://www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Content/Owner/BMWUltimateProtection/TireandWheelP- rotection.aspx

Just make sure that the dealer is using BMW Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor to calculate your payment and you're in business.
Maybe you or someone else could point to a BMW dealer that lets you have the buy rate, does not mark up the acquisition fee, and has a reasonable doc fee?
I have leased BMWs before, but this time every dealer I talk with is doing about a point over buy rate, jacking up the bank fee (by as much as $300), and has a $400 or more doc fee. They offer discounts ranging from $800 to $2,400 off MSRP (so far), but when you factor in the inflated numbers this deals are really not that hot. This is for an ordered 135i coupe - on a loaded up car the inflated MF alone is $30 or more a month on the payment (tax included) or over $1k on the term of the lease. If I have to travel too far or have to the car hauled to me, then I might as well pay the rip off inflated rate...

#114 of 227 August lease numbers?
Aug 04, 2010 (12:48 pm)
I know BMW has released its August lease numbers to dealers, but haven't seen them on any message boards yet. I'm probably going to lease a 135i for two years and I'm locked in for the July numbers if I want them, but just trying to figure out if the August numbers are any better. And I'm not sure I trust the quotes from my sales person.
Anyone have August 2010 residuals and money factors for 2011 1 series yet?

My dealer tells me the numbers carried over unchanged from July. At least on the 135i coupe. The new deals are up at the BMW USA page, but they do not include net cap cost which makes it impossible to figure out the money factor. The residual you can get by knowing the end of lease buy out price and MSRP and both are shown in the listing. Note that the dealer can't change the residual.
Is your dealer marking up the MF on your deal? Every one I talked to so far is adding nearly a full point to the buy rate.

I confirmed it with a couple of dealers, the 1 series lease numbers are the same a s last month. Some of the 3 series numbers improved, in particular the sedan numbers.

Trying to get in touch with "jkgreer2"....I've had the exact same problem as your TL with the DVD-A not playing and was hoping you could tell me how you solved. I've replied to your original post in 2007 in the acura tl audio section...Please help.

Regarding DVD-Audio not playing, I had 2 Acura dealers look at problem. The problem for 2004 Acura TL was one DVD-A slot would play, other 5 DVD-A would not. Both Acura dealers did not have a clue. One dealer did guess a 'cleaning' of inside of DVD-A unit was needed. Car was out of warranty. Both dealers gave me suggestions on radio repair shops for DVD-A, which required taking radio/DVD-A unit out, waiting 2-3 weeks for diagnosis, and waiting for repairs. I punted, kept radio unit, played my favorite DVD-A on one channel that worked (other channels played normal CD discs fine) and sold car during next year. DVD-A fix may be as simple as 'cleaning', but I now have 50-55 mpg Prius. Sorry can not help more. I do miss the DVD-Audio sound (Eagles Hotel Calif). Good luck with repairs.
