I have a 2005 Element EX that they are going to take on trade and give me $14000 and
I owe $18000 on it at 10.9%. I would be getting a 2006 BMW X3 with the sport, premium and upgraded
sound system MSRP is around $42k. With $3000 down my payments are $639 for a 36 month
12k/year lease. Is this a good deal? Any suggestions on what I can do to better this? They
claim they are already at $500 over invoice I think I have a money factor of .00025 but I need to clarify that. My Fico score is only 677 so I know I won't qualify for the best rate. I would I lower my payments by going to a 39 month lease ?

Hi jkmiec. You never mentioned the selling price or MSRP of the vehicle that you are interested in leasing. These are important numbers for you as a consumer to know for two reasons. First, the selling prices of leased vehicles can be negotiated, just as if you were paying cash for them. Without knowing this truck's selling price in relation to its MSRP you don't know how much of a discount you are getting on it. The second reason is that one needs the selling price and MSRP, including the destination charge, of a vehicle to calculate its lease payment. I would be more than happy to give you my opinion on this deal if you let me know what these numbers are.

#9 of 1097 BMW Financial Question on New Lease Negative Trade
Feb 20, 2007 (4:54 pm)
What is the Max Cap cost BMW Financial will accept on a lease?
I have a Toyota I would like to trade in.
I believe I read the Acq is $695.
I am looking at a 36 month lease 12K miles per year. Do you know the MF and Residual for those terms?

Hi susanj92009. I believe that the maximum amount that can be financed on a leased vehicle is based upon a percentage of the MSRP of the vehicle that is being leased. I'm not sure where BMW Financial Services caps the capitalized cost, but it is probably somewhere around 105% of MSRP or so. Perhaps someone else out there can provide a little more insight on this subject.
BMW Financial Services' base lease acquisition fee is $625. Its current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2007 BMW X3 with 12,000 miles per year are .00200 and 67%, respectively.

My dealer has offered the following deal:
2007 BMW X3 in Alpine White with Sand Beige Leatherette and equipped with auto transmission, heated steering wheel and front seats as well as privacy glass. MSRP is $40025. The current "price" is $39325. Money factor appears to be .00255, term is 36 months with 10K miles. They have me paying $5300 at signing ($450 is security dep.). Taxes are listed as $3683 - our sales tax rate here is 7.55%. The monthly lease payment is $448.23. I want to pay nothing down and negotiate to a net capital price of $38000 or pay $1000 down for a net capital price of $37000. I cannot understand why the need for the $5300 down - it doesn't add up. What are they doing?????

Are you paying all of the sales tax for the lease up front?
If so the sales tax plus security deposit plus the first payment nearly equals 5,300 dollars. Throw in a few hundred dollars for registration, plates and doc fee and you have 5,300 dollars.

This looks like a bad deal.. even if you are paying all of the tax upfront..
Also, that tax amount is huge... do you live in Illinois or Texas?

Your sales tax also seems way too high.

I just got an X3. MSRP $43,490, Sale Pice $40,950 plus $625 Acq. fee and $600 security deposit for the lease. 24 mos. 15k per year, 24 payment of $584 including tax. MF was .00215 with 75% rv. I think the sale price should come to about $1,000 over invoice. Dealer never mentioned Maco or training fee, so it must have been included in the sale price already. In our area (SoCal) dealers have tons of X3s on the lot and it is towards the end of the model year, so they need to be more flexible.

do you have a sense of what the new numbers are for the X3?
I'm interested in an Automatic with Premium and Climate package, and only basic inception fees at signing.
Term: 24/36 months
Thanks very much.
