The residual will stay at 60% for 15,000 miles but there will be an $1800 charge for an additional 4,000 miles at $.15 per mile

You probably mean:
"The residual will stay at [57%] for 15,000 miles but there will be an $1800 charge for an additional 4,000 miles at $.15 per mile"
#70 of 152 Is $399 offer on xDrive 28i based on 0.0013 money factor?
Mar 18, 2013 (11:21 am)
So, I'm trying to practive my calculations before going to the dealer today, but something doesn't add up. For the lease special offered at:
with MSRP of $38,345, $725 Acquisition fee, $750 loyalty rebate, and $3,624 first month (including $2500 down, $725 acq. fee and 399 first month payment), I get monthly payments of $412 (pretax and excluding license and reg), when I use 0.0013 for money factor and 0.6 residual factor for 10,000 miles per year.
Here is my calculations:
Net Cap Cost = 38345 (MSRP) + 725 (acq. fee) - 2500 (down payment) - 725 (acq. fee paid upfront) - 750 (rebate) = 35095
Month depreciation = (35095-23007)/36 = 336
Interest = (35095+23007)*.0013 = 76
Total = 336+76 = 412
Am I missing something? why do I get $412 and not $399? Does this lease special come with lower money factor maybe?

Yes you are right. Sorry about that, was looking at the wrong residual.

Does the MF posted above for the 28i apply to 35i as well?

#76 of 152 Dealer offering 0.0017 money factor but cutting the price
Mar 23, 2013 (10:03 am)
The dealer that I'm negotiating with tells me his money factor is 0.0017 for X1 because they are in red. I guess they want me to think that they are selling at loss. (I got a price about $800 above Edmunds.com invoice price, and $300 above the dealers invoice price - Their invoice price was $500 more than Edmunds.com apparently due to advertising fee).
So, anyways, I walked away, saying that the market rate is 0.0013, and if they can't afford it, I won't take the deal.
Now, the dealer has called me again, offering to cut from the price to account for the higher money factor. (They need to cut at least $1200 to match the difference).
What do you think about it? Should I go for it? or this is just another gimmick of a dishonest dealer, and I better avoid them altogether?
