Thx! Approx 80 a month on payments or another option :-)

And it sounds like you both are comfortable about getting the money back (then again it's a good way to finance your next BMW lease )

Yeah, I saw this doc, I was using it as a guide for my deal, and the numbers for the 550i that my CA gave me are in line with the doc, so when I read that the 550i xDrive had a much higher residual i assume something was wrong...now, after learning what I have, I think that the document is not accurate, or was ammended before it was sent out to the dealers.

I'm going to do two things I think:

1 - do the 7 MSD's and see what my monthly price is
3 - see if the 535ix residual went up

I still don't think I can justify the 550ix - unless one of you wants to pick it up for me but I cannot imagine that would work with signatures etc... I might look in to see id ED has to be in person, or I can fax/fedex everything to them and then let it ship.

Is it true that you start paying for a ED car the second you agree to that option (meaning the lease month and taxes start the day you sign)? I heard that was the case in PA.

Oh boy - 20 more a month for the 550ix GT.

Decisions, decisions.... 65 residual on 550 and 58 residual on 535. V8 and premium sound std on 550 are the perks for the extra cash. MPG - 14 city vs 18 or $80 for about every 10,000 miles driven.

I just did the math and there's a difference of $65/mo for between with or without the MSD's.
($730 w/o, $665 with.). Looks like doing max msd saves about 9% of of the monthly payment)

BMW will come up with new residuals at the beginning of Oct. Even if you lock in now (as far as I know all you need is to submit your credit application) you can use either Sept or Oct numbers, whichever are better.

Can't be done, unfortunately. You need to be in person and show your passport to pick up the car.

There's people here that has picked up the key and immediately given it back for BMW to drive the car to the drop off -yep, they'll do that for you, I think they charge 65 euro- and flown back the same night...

You start paying the moment you sign the deal. (I'll be signing my deal about a week before taking delivery). BMW picks up the 2nd lease payment, which kind-of makes up for the time the car spends in transit.

Thx for the detailed info both of you! I think the 535 is in my cards, working the msd angle now to reduce the payment.
