Owner's Choice in Illinois set to expire in 60 days
I have an '06 330xi that I purchased via the Owner's Choice program. The term was for 3 years and allowed for 15k miles/year (term is up at the end of September). The residual is about $28k and I am considering buying it out.
After some good reseach on this forum, I see that I've missed the boat on low buyout deals on lease turn-in's. It seems like I could have got my car for $25k about 4 months ago, but now BMWFS doesn't seem like they are moving off of the residuals (or in my case, the balloon amount).
I'm working with my CA from the dealership where the vechicle was purchased, and if he can't get a good number that makes sense, I would consider doing another Owner's choice on a new '09 335i xDrive.
My question is, how can I ensure that I'm getting the best number from my CA?
Can I bounce this information off of some you guys so that I can make the best purchase decision?
With the way the economy and job security has been, I want to be prudent and not tie up too much cash into a new vehicle - but at the same time I don't want to get a stripped down loaner vehicle either.
Thanks for any insights...
