Now is definitely a good time to get a 3er. I've been tracking F30 programs and inventory for a few months, and it's difficult to imagine it getting much better--especially with the LCI coming soon....

College Graduate Rebate + European Delivery?

Title says it all: can the $1,000 College Graduate Rebate be combined with European Delivery? I emailed BMWNA, but they suggested I ask a local dealer.

If you do your research, you can probably score a sub-$300/month, $0 down lease with European Delivery and Multiple Security Deposits (MSDs).

According to a post on 2addicts, the residuals for M235i are:

60% 15k
62% 12k
63% 10k

.0013 MF

Personally I would be interested in those for 228i.

My indy mechanic drilled a screw or something directly into the bumper. It was hidden beneath the rub strips, so it looks fine.

I believe the OLP and lease cash are one and the same. But yeah, my lease calculator is telling me $546/mo + tax with max MSDs and $500 over ED invoice. Not bad.

Sounds about right, Southwest. As a reference, a base 528i automatic is 35,000 in the UK. That car runs $47,800 in the US. For the i3, I'm guessing just under $40K after tax credit. That's not bad...
