Arrow Posted: January 2013 BMWFS Residuals and More...

Use this information to help you structure your deal in advance before heading to your dealer.

Sorry, but I am forbidden from posting confidential information such as Lease Money Factors.

When selecting your dealer, kindly take into consideration my experience -- 4 decades in the automotive industry, at every level of dealership management from New Vehicle Salesperson to Director of Finance to General Sales Manager. When I first began assisting the burgeoning online community of BMW buyers (circa 1997), I was virtually the only BMW representative in the USA to do so, the original, the pioneer. This is just one of the reasons why Bimmerfest exists today. If you have ever derived benefit or pleasure from this website, I ask that you give me a shot at handling your next BMW acquisition. 2012 was a great year for BMW and for myself -- returning after a 7 year sabbatical. I hope to build on that momentum, and will be offering even more aggressive pricing for all California BMW buyers in 2013 (sorry, but my "Internet Special" program for Bimmerfest members is strictly limited to California/West Coast or adjoining states exclusively). My customers always comment that they can't believe how easy it is to do business this way. Thanks to resources like www.BMWConfig.com, all you have to do is calculate the Factory Wholesale (invoice) price, send me the spec's, and get an incredible quote. Honestly, you can't go wrong with any of our forum sponsors. One way to show your appreciation for Bimmerfest would be to order from the guy who started it all (me)...



Below are the residuals and option credits for January:

Does that "eligible credit" of $3500 on the X 35D mean the Eco is up to $3500 ?

Nice to see the residual and credit unchanged for the M3 coupe. Not sure what impact, if any, there was on the m.f. Is this typical for a vehicle in the closing months of production?

Mein Auto: Z3
Thanks Jon

As I've said to you privately...as a long time lurker, once it came time for me to get serious about replacing my Z3, after I had taken a couple of test drives and really narrowed down exactly what I wanted, you were my first email.

Based only on you creating the site and the amount of time you spend not only distributing information but also patiently answering people's specific questions which made me an infinitely more knowledgeable consumer, I felt I owed you the opportunity to lose my business.

And then I realized that as diligent as you are to the forum you somehow kick it up a notch for your clients. Negotiating for a car became a thing of the past for me. Your terms were better than what my starting points would have been.

You got me an allotment that went into production the next week and you only showed patience when I couldn't get my act together in time to take advantage of it. And a month later when I was ready you somehow pulled another allotment for the following week and this was while you were out of the country.

All I can do is thank you for all your efforts on my behalf and let other forum lurkers know what my experience has been like working with you.

I hope 2013 is even better than 2012 for you and your family.

I hear you and feel the same way. This is why I opted to trade my beloved 335d for the e70 x5m.

Pull ahead program

There was a lease pull ahead available during the holidays which expired on Jan 2nd. Is there a new pull ahead program available in January?

Is this only for 2010 model years or leases started in 2010? I have a 2011 MY coming off a three year lease in May.

I think I already know the answer to my question, but is it possible to combine the expired Dec program rates with the new pull ahead program? This is assuming one locked in the Dec program before it expired. I'm guessing "no", but am wishing "yes"...please tell me so...

That's kind of annoying. So do people who purchase early release model years generally get screwed out of the pull ahead promotions? I know several people with 2011 3-series and X5's that mature from 3-year leases between now and July.

Was really hoping there were some incentives coming up to buy another BMW, but it looks like I might just buy out my car and keep it.

No, I wouldn't look at it like that.. When they decide to do pull-aheads they are looking at their national portfolio and targeting buyers who are getting close to maturity, that's all.

I head a rumor they may offer a special lease extension to current X5 lessees who will be having their leases mature during the period between E70 build-out and the launch of the new X5.

That is good to know about the X5, I hope they decide to offer the extension. Thanks for the info.

There's no free lunch. Those cars will be dated in roughly half a year's time. Personally, the F32 design looks very good.

Basically, the former applies to anyone who leases/finances with BMW. The latter applies in addition to the former if they are a current BMWFS customer.

I still love E92 very much. In particular, the M3. We may never see another car like it again (normally aspirated V-8), so those are particularly hot right now.

The 335is is also a very badass BMW, and since it is low production volume/specialty car, "muy caliente ahorita"... 8^)
