Why don't you order a 328d exactly the way you want? 328d is a rare beast and it might be difficult (read impossible) to locate one configured the way you'd like.

Looks good. Specially 61% residual is strong for a '14 MY car.

I would reduce the MF down to 0.00081 by using MSD.

@marsb007,

Wow! 37 MPG in bumper-to-bumper highway traffic is pretty impressive. I don't think even a Honda Civic can pull that off.

Thanks so much for the detailed comparison. I have two more questions for you.

My lease will be over in less than a year. I really liked my current F10 and would love to lease another. However, not wanting to lease the same model twice, I am leaning towards the (faux) 535d.

@gekbi,

Keep the 535i. Driving a turbocharged straight-6 BMW sedan is not 'settling'.

Pre-LCI 550i is a bag of hurt due to faulty design of the N63 engine. Worse, BMW won't admit their mistake...

Looks good. If you want to negotiate further, ask the dealer to reduce the acquisition fee to $725, which is the base acquisition fee BMWFS charges.
