Lease Rate for Progressive Credit

Hey Guys.

I moved to the US sometime back and due to certain issues my credit score dropped (issue was small, but since my history is very short, it affected my score by more than what its worth).

Anyways, BMW FS put me at progressive credit range(I believe that is 601-639 ouch!) and has approved me for a 30 month lease on a new 328i. (30 month as I am a foreign national and my visa expires in 34 months. i think my approval has got to do with my high income).

I wanted to know the right lease rate or money factor for this credit tier. It is important for me to know this so that I can have the right negotiation with the dealer.

The quote I have right now is

2012 328i
MSRP 41 945 (premium, cold, bluetooth with bmw assist). 30 months/ 10k miles a year

7k downpayment (includes 1st month's pay), (385 per month + tax)

I believe this is a lot . Given my credit situation I want to know what's a good deal for me and what should be my number to negotiate.
It will be great if you guys can help me out

Your credit score should affect your money factor/ interest rate. Looks like you are paying sticker? Also, point 7k down on a lease is crazy, better of putting into MSD to lower your interest rate.

If your dealer can pull a higher FIco score they can submit that to BMW and get you a better rate. However I do a lot of foreign national deals most clients have a 600 to 6665 FIco score as they have no credit in the US. The fact that you are approved is a very GOOD THING. Odds are You may not even score on any other credit bureaus ....FYI you can have the lease match the time of your visa so you can do 34 months
