Any guesses as to if the April incentives will be better than the current ones?

I predicted March would be better.

I'm hoping that they extend the spring credit of $1500 for another month into April.

How about they keep residuals the same, lower money factor for all models to .001, keep the current incentives in place, and .... bring back the pull-ahead program from December where if you have a current lease date ending by May 31, you get an additional money factor reduction of .00075. I'll take three out of the four though.

BMW is moving cars, lots of them. In general, I'd guess the programs will be about the same. Slow sellers may get help, so it depends on what model you are interested in. The grass is always going to be greener- strike a deal you think is great and enjoy the new car.

This. I doubt we will see any improvement over this months programs unless there is a supply backup and there is no indication of that happening. Most metro area dealers are moving supply quite well. Maybe in late summer when the 2013's are on the way we might see some drastic money factor reductions......

Given sales are up, I have to agree. Actually surprising to me that they added the incentives for March.

The 5 Series wasnt doing well which is why they added incentives. The 3 Series and X5 are rolling out the doors though so I wouldnt expect anything there..

Haven't seen any signs of left-over inventory in my neck of woods yet. Had my day off this Wednesday and went to the Crevier in OC. I was really surprised to see how busy the dealership was at 10am on a weekday - customers taking deliveries, completing transactions, and taking test drives. Friends tried to convince me to go with Mercedes, since, according to anecdotal reports, you negotiate from 10000 off the sticker. Isn't that going to affect their resale?
