For some reason I always thought that AZ was a better state for taxes, hence a lot of companies setting up shop there. But I honestly have no idea.
Sorry - that was somewhat sarcastic. The tax rate in PHX is higher than SoCal. Does not seem right to me. For example, we are contemplating a move to NC. If we do, my payment would go from $450 to $423 and my wife's 135 goes down $30 as well.

Took delivery of a brand new (<100 mls) 2011 335is from my local dealer yesterday. It was the last 2011 they had. MSRP $56.9, sold for $46K even after $1K loyalty. Leased it for $499/mo (w/ 8.25% tax), 36 months, 10K miles with 7 MSDs, very minor cash to get payment under $500 for the MSDs.

I searched all around the country and this the best deal I could find anywhere. I did find another loaded '11 with an offer for $3K under invoice if anyone is looking. White/red DCT. PM me if you want the details on that one.

It had been on the lot too long. If anyone can settle on an in-stock unit now is the time; similar savings to be had.

Must come from current inventory, pick-up in Santa Barbara. That is the only caveat.

Yep...this is exactly why I got an insane deal on my 11 535i 6MT....it was about 7-8 months old when I took her (with only 20 miles on it). Dealers are doing some crazy stuff these days to unload in-stock 2011 models.

2011 335i Sedan - ZMP (w/ the style 193s), ZPP, ZMZ, HK, Nav, Htd Seats. MSRP $53,750. $450 a month including stupid Phoenix 9.3% tax. Enhanced loyalty, 7 MSDs, minor cap cost ($250) to get under $450.
Cool...you got exactly what you wanted...nice. I personally would have brought out your E90 M3 and kept it for the long haul....but I know you prefer to lease.

I gave serious thought to buying the M3...a couple of things kept me from doing so. 1 - the car had over 500 miles on it when I got it and I assume those were hard test drive miles. No worry for a lease but it *might* be an impact long term if the car was not broken in properly. 2 - the warranty was punched so there was only 42 months from the point I took delivery.

The car is solid, but these two things were keeping me from keeping it. That and we are trying to cut costs a bit as we are planning to move.

PorscheRacer, sounds like a good deal....but surprised it was attractive to lease given that residual % on 2011s must have plummeted by now. What was residual % for your lease?

Congrats.

Wow, I am wondering how you were able to swing this. Back in September I leased a 335is MSRP $56,875, invoice $52,565 (before $1K loyalty and ~$1750 transmission credit) with $500 over invoice, 2 yr lease, 10K miles/year, my payment is $548 including CA tax. $46K is like $6K under invoice. Hmmmm....

My M3 was punched early also and goes out of warranty 45 months after i took possession. Right now, I may still buy it at end of lease in April. I have looked around to try and take advantage of the great deals but I don't think I would be happy with a non-M car plus there isn't a single manual transmission car on my local dealer's lot. Not one. Even all three 650i are auto. And they have no M's.

Hmmmm....
I was amazed myself! Residual on 2011 335is is 60% and .00195MF. I did 7 MSDs to lower the MF. I did pay the acq fee in cash and allowed $825 ($100 markup, I didn't want to push THAT hard). Total was ~ $4850 out the door ($3500 MSDs, $825 acq, $499 1st payment, and a very slight cap reduction to save a buck and get the MSDs under $500).

I have no idea how the dealer sold it for ~ $6K under invoice but I'm pretty happy It was really ~ $5K under invoice because I had the $1K loyalty.

Congrats.
60% residual. I calculated that I'd probably be a few bucks ahead buying it but I was nervous about the depreciation of a 2011 and wanted to try leasing for a change. Chances are that I'll get nowhere near 10K miles/yr and will buy the car at the end of the lease because the value will be well above residual. If I'm wrong, the lease protects me and I walk away. If I'm right, I've spent a bit more in the process but I feel protected for the money.

I have three dealers within 15 min of me in central NJ and they are all filled with 2011 inventory. Yesterday, I tried to make a deal on a 535i xDrive and the deal was nothing special.

So.... here's a question for the thread... what would you consider to be a great "year-end fifty yard dash" lease deal (36M, 12K/year) on a leftover 2011 535i xDrive with an MSRP of ~$60K?

You're right. I bought, got a good deal, but nobody's giving 'em away. You still need to fight to get what you get.

I must admit I looked hard at the deals available on the F10's. Damn good...but my wife had to have a SAV.

Sorry to break it to you, but you might as well lease a 2012. I don't need to explain. Just keeping it real.

I pretty much did the same thing with small cap reduction to get SD under $550, gave 7 MSDs down plus aq fee, dest charge and tax. My lease is for 2 years so I think my residual was 65%. My deal is $48/month more then yours and I get to have a new car in 21 months. Plus you may need to replace your RFTs at 25K miles or so. So I am still happy .

In today's local paper we have a 2011 335d advertised for $8,500.00 off MSRP.

Too bad I'm not ready for a new car yet..
