This probably has to do with the announcement of the 2008 models. I'm sure many people thinking of buying or leasing one decide to wait a few months to check out the new models or at least get a discount on the current ones.

Actually, kind of surprising to me given the fantastic lease rates on the 525/530s since December. I picked mine up yesterday and couldn't be happier. I will post a review of my new ride and a synopsis of my PC Delivery this weekend (a little hint, it was OUTSTANDING). :)
