Thinking of leasing a 2009/2010 X5D

New to the forum, but have already found it to be a great resource. I've read hundreds of posts so far, and appreciate all the insight others have provided.

I'm thinking of buying or leasing a new X5, and I've got a good grip on pricing for purchases, but not sure how to negotiate the lease.

Is there a formula I should use to calculate lease terms, based off the wholesale price list above?

And did you guys ask for the $4,500 eco credit to come off of the wholesale price?

Thanks in advance!

One problem with leasing in Illinois is you have to pay sales tax on the ENTIRE car. so if MSRP is $70k, at a 10.5% tax rate, that's $7,350 in sales tax, regardless of how long you have the lease. its pretty lame its set up this way, and i may just buy it since at least ill own the car after paying the taxes. would love to find a used one but the 2010 (with new i drive) probably won't have a good used selection for a while.

decisions, decisions...

You CAN get the 4500 on a lease - I'm picking up my custom ordered X5d in 3 weeks. But you MUST have the paperwork signed by Aug 31 to take advantage of the 4500 "eco-credit."
