Question Are you within 120 of ending a BMWFS lease??

If so, and your current ride is a 2000, or a 2001 (except for X5's
and AWD's), BMWFS will waive your remaining payment(s)
if you trade-in your Bimmer for a new one (and lease it
through BMWFS)... They will also waive your disposition
fee, as well as the security deposit requirement on
your new lease.

Program ends 7/31.

Jon,

Is this dealer specific or is it a national program being offered by BMW?

Thanks.
Gary

Hmmmm, I'll call you.
When you get time, throw some #'s together on the silver one, so I have an idea what we're talking about.

Yes, but why, I'd be happy to buy a car from Jon.

Is this why you asked?

Oh no, not at all, I'd happily go there for a car too. I just live in San Ramon, so just figured I'd say hi to a neighbor.

Yea, I know what you mean, I'm trying to convince the wifey into leasing a 325ci, so that I can tweak the 540 a little more.
I don't think it's going to happen right now, to many things going on right now (finacially speaking)

Let me know when you get that Bimmer, you can join our local "all" BMW's Club.

Jon,

Is it the dealer's discretion as to whether they will take the car or not? My dealer told me I had to bring my car in to be appraised before they could tell me if I qualified or not. I'm not that concerned since my 2000 Ti silver 328ci is in great condition and only has 32k miles on it I just want to double check. Thanks.

Gary

Well, the dealer does have to "buy" the car, so yes,
it is technically at their discretion...

Their payoff price is based on "fair market value", so I can't
really imagine them not being able to help you out, though.

I'm sure you'll be in great shape!

Let us know what happens!!!
