Base money factor changes each month with the residual value. BMW FS changes it based on a variety of factors. If they want to increase sales they can increase the RV a point or two to lower lease...

I just looked it up, I see it changed last month (April 2017 for leases starting May 1, 2017). They also changed residuals on loaner cars, they used to have the same RV as a new car. All these...

One word: Terrible

Unsolicted advice:
1.) Don't put a down payment
2.) Maximize the security deposit
3.) 1% of the price of the car is fair deal (all leases)
4.) BMW's are aggressively leased,...

Yeah, cameras were supposed to be mandated for 2014 cars and later. Then it was pushed to 2018. So, if cameras become standard in 2018, it would have take 11 years to get this through. Lovely....

Next we'll hear, the car was 'inspected' by a state employee so the title is now rebuilt instead of salvage. These state employees are highly trained!

That's a good way to test the difference and how it feels to you. It's all preference. Tires will make the biggest difference in getting you around a corner faster! Remember, slow in fast out!

7% off MSRP has been a typical transaction for BMW. However, 2017's are still new and 2016's exist. Once the 2016's are gone, the 2017's will become run of the mill. Give it a month or two...

Terrible deal.

In very high level general terms, paying 1% per month of MSRP is pretty square. Dealers will accept that deal all day long.

It's average for a lease. Leases on the 2017 340xi are not very good. That deal is a 7.7 when I plug it into Lease Hackr ($600/month excluding tax and fees). A 10 is a good deal, anything over 10...
