Mein Auto: 335xi
New and Considering 2013 BMWxi

Hi - I am new here and am considering upgrading my 2009 335xi to a new 535xi. Different ride but I spend a lot of time traveling and I think the 5 series are incredibly smooth.

I wanted to hear people's perspectives on the cost of the car and the lease term.

The car I am looking at is equipped as follows:

Carbon Black Metallic (love it)/Black dakota

Packages:
Cold weather
Driver Assistance
M Sport
Premium
Technology
Sport Automatic Transmission
Multi-contour seats (a must for the amount of time I spend in my car)
Premium hi fi

Suggested price is $69,570 and the dealer is offering it to me for $66k. Thoughts? (I did complete the test drive and have a $1000 credit so that is included).
Also considering a 39 month lease versus a 36 month lease (its actually "owner's choice" since I am in Chicago).
Thoughts are appreciated. I have always bought before so this is new to me. Thanks in advance.

I think you can do better. According to BMWconfig, invoice is $64,150. I just ordered a similar car, not an x-drive, and was able to get a little over $1,000 over invoice. Another 535i was had for about $500 over invoice (miamiboyca).
