Again, I still think this is a very, very high payment for an outgoing M235. There has to be some room in that deal. Has to be. Anyway, I hope you are able to work out a deal that is agreeable to...

With the M240i on their way, there should be incentive for the dealer to move '16s on the lot. You should be able to a LOT better than $1500 over.

Deal from a lease payment perspective seems terrible. You need the dealer to provide all the details in their offer to make a determination:
Money Factor
Residual
Capitalized Cost
MSRP
Taxes...

Sale price looks good, but MF definitely marked up. Buy rate is .00137 this month, I believe. If that's true, then 7 MSDs (.00049) would result in a target MF of .00088. Good luck!

Probably a 'lease swap' is your best bet. You can also buyout the car and then try to sell it. Probably get soaked though.

Quick thoughts on this:
1) You can do a better job on the selling price. Determine invoice & incentives for this model and try for a 'invoice plus' deal. Historically, many have said Invoice + $500...

Kind of weird that you get a better deal (to MSRP) on an ordered 2017 vs something they have in inventory. It should be the other way around. I would probably try to work an aggressive deal on the...

What is the specific 'Money Factor'? It should be expressed as a decimal and should be .00137 which is known as the 'buy rate'. The dealer is allowed to mark up to .0004 to .00177. You can/should...

Something seems off as $718 (referring to first quote) seems high for a 65% residual and buy rate on the MF. I pay roughly $70 less per month on a $62.5k 335xi with a lightly better MF, but slightly...

When you open the hood, does the engine cover say 'M Performance' on it? If so, you may have the M Performance Power Kit (MPPK). If so, that might explain the burbling on overrun - especially if in...

Yes, it can be acquired as a port installed accessory (PIA) for new (ordered) cars or installed after the fact by a BMW dealer. It is part of the 'M Performance' line of products.

Am I missing something; how is the factory warranty up? It's a 2013 with 9k miles. Unless it was 'punched' before 6/29/12, it should have a little time left. Now that I think about it, 2012 & 2013...

Interesting. I will call my SA about this as my CBS is indicating its time for service. Less that 3 weeks after low mileage service at the dealer.

BMWFS doesn't offer leases over 15k miles. You would have to pay a per/mile charge over 15k/yr (45k total) depending on the vehicle.
