#1066 of 1097 Thoughts on lease deal
Mar 17, 2013 (5:34 pm)
I'm looking at a 2013 X3 28i with technology, premium, premium sound, sports activity, xenon lights, and heated front seats. MSRP is $49,895 and invoice is $46,300.
First dealer wasn't willing to go under $47k with .00145 MF and 3k cash down for $641/month. This also includes Maryland taxes which are on the total cap cost and account for about $75/month.
I went to a second dealer and they are willing to beat the first and bring it down to $620/month. The finance manager hasn't given me their MF yet as she said she may play with the numbers for month-end targets (either adjusting sales price or MF to benefit sales or finance groups). Is $620/month a good deal given the steep taxes?

This is NOT correct. This is for 2013. The production on 2014 has started, the rates are different. Unfortunately while trying to clear out the 2013 models, the MF are higher and residuals lower making for a worse off lease.

why has BMW started on 2014 so early has BMW done a major redo of the X3 ?

It is correct and I have the bulletin to prove it. And 2014 X3's start production on April 1st

Again, why has BMW started on the 2014 model so early, have they done a redo of the X3 already?

No they haven't done a redo of the X3 yet. I believe that is set for 2015 but not a full model change. This is just the way the X3 production is set up. The 2013's came out at this time last year

Didn't they switch model years in April, 2012 because of the switchover to the turbo-4?
You can see why they wouldn't want a model year to stretch longer than a year.... especially with a lot of leasing... Too much mileage variance between vehicles of the same model year... negatively affecting resale...

Yes that's when the X3 28i got the turbo 4

Hi folks, any thoughts on this lease? I should have mentioned before this is for 10k miles and 36 months. Payment is $620/month which includes about $75/month for Maryland taxes (tax on total cap cost). MSRP is $49,895. Is this a reasonable deal? Thanks!
