Clarification of Black Friday Weekend promotion

I have an ordered X5d sitting at my dealer; I plan to pick it up next week (hoping against logic that there may be an improved December offer). I already have a UDE credit applied to my deal ($1,000...

Why would you assume it's based on the FICO score? The current base rate is .00130, so .00170 is just the maximum dealer mark up of .0004. The OP should negotiate the lease rate down to .0013 if he...

I believe you are best off with the cap cost reduction. You do get the full benefit of the $1,000 that way, it is not taxed, and you are not paying interest on it.

1,000/36 kind of implies you...
