Deal appears OK

It looks like you have a cap reduction of ~$4K. The 59% residual is correct for 12K miles @ 36K. MF should be .0001 (which is almost free money: 0.24%). All you are paying on the lease is...

Are you looking for a coupe or convertible?

The 645 deal is too high. The 650 ad listed in another post is a coupe. As a coupe the deal is OK but not fantastic.


Which transmission are you looking for?

I passed on the M3

Well, the grand plan of trading in my mint 650I 2006 convertible on an 2008 M3 vert (lease) fell through. As you note, the dealer referred to auction prices for my trade-in which are through the...

Valentine 1 on a 650I convertible....

Anyone put a Valentine 1 in a 650I convertible?

This is not the same as the coupe, I believe, because of the lack of a sunroof.

I have experience putting the V1 in a E39 540I. That was...

One more picture of 650I interior

Here you might see again a different "shade" for the Chateau. The flash really washes out the color.

My 650 dropped off on 11 Nov

Glad to see my car was not there. Harms said it was going to Bremerhaven on 14 Nov. Guess it did.

How do you find out when and what ship it gets on?

Absolutely ... I wonder how many have hit the side?

They really need to get bigger doors. It is laughable. I eased out with my wife monitoring the right side. I thought I would have to fold the mirrors to get out.


Pretty funny. You put someone in...
