I would hope so. MB leases the base model well, but it rarely leases the upper engine model very well. Expect the E43 lease to be $200-300 more.

With the inflated residuals and your additional 1.5K of incentive, you really should be able to do much better than you are experiencing, especially for on the lot cars. As a control, I'd contact a...

That was a misprint in the bmwblog article. It will indeed be an 8 cylinder. The N63TU2 engine, the same engine in the new 750.

I haven't gotten the V8 out of my system. It will be difficult to go to a slower car being used to all of that power. It becomes obvious when in a rental car. On the G30, with the higher output...

Contact a forum sponsor. Mike Wendroff at Morristown is a good bet. Based on the incentives on the outgoing F10, you can do much better on that deal. Don't put any money down, but rather do MSD's.

Until the E43 comes out, the E is a non-starter for any up engine buyer on the BMW side. Knowing MB, the E43 will not lease very well at all. And the A6/A7 are most certainly due to be replaced...

Indeed. I'm sure that the major dealer chains that we've heard so much about might not be all too crazy about this idea either. If the margin increase doesn't make up for the loss in sales, they...

SOP still seems to be 11/16, so no change there. Totally unsure about the 550 at this point. The original documents did not show it. My lease is up next year, so I'm hoping that the 550 returns. ...

I never thought I would like the design, but when I was in the new 7, the design was very unobtrusive and didn't look bad at all. I was pleasantly surprised.

The i8 has it as a $6,300 option. That's the only car available in the US with them now. It should start making its way to the other series in the next few model years.
