Per one of my posts above, when I placed the order Sept 30 I had several advantages --- pre-$500 increase, ECO was $4,500, residual was 2% higher and lease MF was .0021 (vs .0022), so it is basically...

I ordered an X5 on Sept 30 --- my CA told me the next day that MF went up from .0021 to .0022 and the ECO credit for the 35d was reduced from $4500 to $3500. Don't know if the residuals changed.
