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'm curious to know where you found new leather for the driver's seat. The seats in my car aren't in the greatest shape.

Main reason was cost-of-ownership:

1) Depreciation: The E350 BlueTEC had a slightly higher MSRP than the gas model, but its residual was 5% higher over a 24-month lease, so payments ended up being...

I like it. i3 is not supposed to look like a conventional BMW, as it's part of BMW's "i" sub-brand. BMW i has its own distinct DNA, much like MINI and Rolls-Royce do, down to the warning chime you...

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.

If y'all are open to a floaty Mercedes, you should be able to score a good lease on a 2013 E350 Bluetec. My parents got 17% off MSRP last December on a $59,500 car with 74% residual. That amounts...

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...
