April should not be an issue. I ordered a MY14 335i in mid March last year. I think it starts to get a little late when you get to late June. Not sure about X1 production, but my 335i took just under...

So you got hosed pretty bad. Not to rub it in, but I leased a '14 335xi with an MSRP of $62.5k and the monthly payment is over $100/mo less than your payment. I didn't out any money 'down', but I...

First thing, separate the lease and trade in transactions and take the money from the trade and put it in the bank. Don't use it as a cap cost reduction as the money could be at risk in the event of...

I don't know about the motor, but the 8 speed AT in my 335xi is very clunky in cool to cold conditions for the first 3-4mins. Almost uncomfortably so. May be something I have the dealer look at.

You will likely need to provide a refundable deposit of $500 - $1000 at order time. Everything else will be settled at delivery. The order process is easy; work with the dealer to pick the options,...

On the surface, $76/mo seems at least $100/mo too high, but there are not enough details to make an accurate estimate. Residual? Money Factor? $2k drive-off or Cap Cost Reduction? Incentives applied?...

1) No extra fee for ordering. This is a common practice.

Yeah, these are horrendous deals. Just for comparison sake, I leased a '14 335xi that retailed for basically the same price as the 428i vert and my payment is under $615/mo excluding MA sales tax. I...

And this seems fishy too. Haven't you been making lease payments on the car? Are you beyond some mileage threshold? What's the justification?

I don't know much about trade assists on leased cars, but this doesn't sound too good. Maybe get BMWNA involved? Seems like they should just let you out of the lease and cut you a great deal on a...

It's a good catch. Typically, they residuals are consecutive (e.g., 61, 62, 63) so you may be off. Did you check ridewithg.com. The site used to have all this info, but de-clawed last year. There is...

Destination fee? Isn't that included in the price of the car (MSRP & Invoice)? Something seems a little off here.

As stated, cap cost reductions are generally a bad idea. If you have extra cash, consider MSDs to lower the Money Factor (.00007 for each one up to 7). The dealer will want something like $500 -$1000...

No, that's not it. Basically, you can make up to 7 security deposits each lowering your money factor by .00007 (max of .00049). A security deposit is you monthly payment round up to the nearest $50...

I recall some other posts on this and from what I can recall, it isn't something that can be done for US spec cars. You can talk to a dealer, but probably won't get far.

Dealers are allowed to mark it up $200 to $925, so maybe that what he was referring to. Just say no to that.

I think DHP is highly recommended for X-Drive models regardless of M-Sport or Sport packages. For RWD, its a matter of preference and willingness to spend the $1k.

Sensibly speaking, it's probably better to go with the factory tune (MPPK) if you are going to lease. It can be residulized if installed at the VPC and there are no warranty issues. If you want to...
