The new lease rates are pretty good for 24 month EDs (e60 now cheaper than e90)...

Just ran some quick numbers--

YOu can lease a base 325i 10k/year 24 months (assuming 1k over invoice, 5 security deposits to cancel out the ED rate adder and $500 down-BMWCCA rebate amount) for abot $260/month.

Given the same assumptions on a base 525i (this time 1k down for BMWCCA rebate), you could lease one for $245 month! Some may find it ugly, but for the same price as leasing an Accord LX, its pretty tempting. Maybe I'll get a new e60 as a "beater".

Hmm, that's very tempting. Wonder how much adding just an automatic would add to the payment? Unfortunately, I don't have the time to do ED right now or I would.

Anyone want to do it for me and transfer the lease?

Probably not much--maybe $7/month.

Well darn it. If it comes with a stripper, what are you waiting for?!

Sorry guys, I made a mistake yesterday. The prices I'm getting are $301 for a stripped 325i (via ED), and $257 for a stripped e60 (strange, eh)? One of hte big reasons for the e60 being cheaper is that i'm assuming 1k over invoice for both-- but for a 5 series you get a $1k rebate from BMWCCA (if you're a member for more than a year) whereas you only get $500 for a 3 series. The other reason is the much lower money factor on the e60.

I'm not very good with calculating leases, but what would be the lease rate on a 525xi w/ an invoice price of $44,515, or even better, could you explain how the numbers work to me?
