Arrow MY 2013 Lease Rates & Residuals Announced

The one I know the one everyone's been waiting for... The all-new F10 M5... 36 months residual for 15k/yr is 48%. Most everything has lower residual
than expected, but also matched thankfully by a lower money factor, so probably a wash at net payment.. These rates are not effective until 7/10 - 7/31.
The new Active Hybrid 3 looks very strong -- 63% base for 36 months. PLEASE do not email me with questions; I'll prepare a matrix and post soon.

Thanks for your consideration.

Arrow MY 2013 Lease Residuals

A word to the wise: if you currently have a 2012 BMW on order, and are planning on leasing, be sure that BMWFS has already approved your application
so that you receive benefit of the rate lock.


Alright, I've gone ahead and prepared a chart with your 2013 lease residuals Mindful of my dual relationship with the manufacturer, I cannot post
the lease money factors as they have been deemed "confidential" in the past. You all are resourceful enough -- I am sure you'll figure it out.
As I did say, though, rates went down, and that is ALWAYS welcomed news...

Anything that is "standard" for all BMW models as of the beginning of September.

They won't launch with incentives; getting the first one is incentive enough...

Yes, the standard lease is 15k/yr. Add 2% for12k, 3% for 10k/yr.

With the MSD's can we buy down the MF? Also any insight on APR's for financing?

A 3 point drop in the residuals equates to about a $40 per month increase in the lease payment on a $50,000 MSRP 3 series. The MF would have to drop from .0019 to .0014 to fully offset that. Maybe there will eventually be some additional incentives over 2012. The upside of a lower residual is you can buy the car at a lower price at the end of the lease.

Absolutely. .0007 for each.

The X5 numbers have been out for a while. I don't have time to post them all, but if you search the usual places, you'll find them easily...

As far as I can tell... Gas Guzzler tax is history... Can anyone else chime in if they've read any legislation on this topic?

I think it was written into one of the paragraphs in the latest version of the healthcare bill Doesnt the 2013 M6 have this GG tax?

Shocked by X1 residuals. Seriously shocked. May have to change my lease from the 328i (which I was lukewarm about) to an X1.

Jon,

I'd like to thank you for previous posts regarding conquest and programs available. I took delivery from a sponser of a 12 550xi 12 days ago and it is an awesome car.

Take care,
Schnell.

MF for a 3yr lease is .00145. You also need to add .0003 if you are doing ED which makes it .00175. This is the buy rate. At that point the dealer can add whatever they want for their cut.

Ouch! Why is ED .0003 more?? That kills $1,000 of the discount you get from ED, in terms of what your monthly payment will be. ED discount on the ActiveHybrid 3 comes to $3,500 so that's down to $2,300. If two incentives were added to that (two of these: $1000 Drive USA, $1000 College Grad, $1000 Option Allowance, $1000 Conquest Cash), then the advantage for doing ED would only be $500 and really not worth it.

Do you know if the MF for a 30 month and 24 month lease is the same .00145?

Also, speaking of those incentives above, does anyone know if the $1000 Option Allowance is applicable on the AH3, as well as the $1000 Conquest Cash?

Also, Jon, any chance of BMW offering an Eco Credit on the AH3? Was really hoping for that as I remember they had big $3,500 and $4,500 incentives on the 3 series diesels models just recently.

ED is more because you skip the second lease payment. So it evens out over the term of the lease.
