You will need to add MACO & Training to your cost. It's not included as part of 'invoice pricing'. Outside of RMV, local taxes, and documentation fees, there shouldn't be anything else. If so, then...

I have also seen where residuals decline, but are offset by declines in money factor. These are the two levers that BMWFS uses (and credits, allowances, etc.) to drive the 'cost' of leases based on...

As I have posted in other threads, I had the MPPK installed at the VPC when I ordered my F30 335xi in March. It was handled by the dealer just like any other option. I believe the order code is Z4A,...

Griot's makes some products that would be helpful for this purpose. I have a tub of Griot's wipes that I use to clean bird crap, etc.

The impression I got was the BMWFS charges a flat rate for tires on turn in and that rate is favorable. Worth asking.

I signed my lease in May and got 64% residual and the buy rate (.0013). They did start at a higher money factor, but I told them buy rate only. Looks like residuals slipped a little in July for '14s,...

I have the power kit on my 335xi and love it. BMW publishes an increase of 20hp & 32tq and a .2 improvement over base to 60, but I have read some posts where output is more like 345hp and 375tq,...

I think this comes down to tracking the car and or aesthetics. 435GC has pretty good brakes to start with, so not really a safety issue. I'd spend the $2k on the M-Performance Package and a nice...

$700 on a 36/10k lease seems a smidge high. I would think your $665/mo (including taxes) would be closer. I leased a '14 F30 335xi that retailed for $63k on a similar lease deal and the comparative...

My '08 E90 335i netted a replica of the model's original sketch. My '11 E90 335i netted a key-shaped USB stick with some pre-loaded marketing fluff. As we have discussed, my '14 F30 335i got me a...

I have similar experiences with my CA every time. He knows me and knows that I am prepared and understand the process, but the games persist anyway. Maybe time for you to consider a new dealer.

Mark up on buy rate and acquisition fee are not the only profit vehicles for dealers, so don't fall for that. There is no reason you cannot get an 'Invoice plus' deal at the buy rate and base...

I don't think it is for tax purposes. Maybe regional variations in pricing and to steer you to a dealer when you complete your build.

I think you are getting hosed on the MF. I believe you should be looking at .00081 (.0013 - .00049 for max MSD). My dealer tried to pull this on me and I told them no, buy rate only.

I agree with this. Mostly. $500 - $750 over invoice less incentives should easily happen on a '14 - especially if it is sitting on the lot. You should also get the buy rate on the money factor which...
