Any news on lease rates?

I know it's early and maybe nothing is out there yet, but I just thought I'd check to see if anyone has heard anything about how aggressive BMW is going to be with lease rates on the release of the car. Given the current lease rates on the X5, it seems like they are going to have to offer a base lease in the $450 range. Anyone heard anything?

IDK...I never liked leasing because it makes the car seem less exclusive on the road. If people can drive around with a $400 car payment while others are paying $800-1000, it is not the same. That's just me. lol IDK. Maybe some of the ultra rich are saying they don't like financing where people can drive around with an expensive car that they can't afford outright by paying for it over 5 years. lol Maybe the lease ones should only be available in certain colors...lol That would be fair.

Buying a car is so retro. Why would you want to do that? I mean all the up to date people are leasing. Not fun having people respond with condescending remarks. Is it? By the way I like a stick car too and EE's right. RFT's are horrible tires I had them on my 3'er. Took them off after I got my first punctured tire and was told I couldn't fix a simple nail that got stuck in it.They wanted almost three hundred dollars as opposed to one hundred and fifty for a regular. Plus the ride is like being in a tank. Unfortunately I was hoping the X3 has resolved some problems, but seems they have just created new ones.

A loaded 35i (52K) will probably be around 700 to 800 a month for 36 months with a couple k at signing. Don't look for deals right off the bat.

When I loaded (even without rear entertainment) it was $56,800.

Lease price for the 28i is now up and is pretty much what I thought it'd be:

X3 xDrive28i
Build Your Own
36-month lease well-equipped
at $489/month

Of course, they've also bumped up the leases by more than $100/mo on the X5s. Amazing.

And that's with 3k down, base model plus fees. That's almost 600 a month for a base model. The X5 specials are no money down and they have more equipment so the X3 leases are real bad just as they were before. I don't see them getting better since they wont have to give them away to sell them.

You're right. Didn't notice they'd removed the money down from the X5. May have to consider an X5 instead.
