I have not serious probing the dealers.... I got 300 over invoice on 08; kind of want the 09 if DCT and new idrive is available... what do you think? BMWFS offered me $38 for my 550... man they are losing shirt on the car which is $60k -16k (lease payment)= 44k (total residual) and they only want 38k....what about you? got your car pick out?
that'so true... can't get the deal we got...for the same reasons (front end and gas milage), I am going with 335i coupe. I think it's a beautiful car - too bad I cannot get M3. i might even chip the 335i to get 50+ more HP and torque. are you going to do ED? My wife did not want to go this year... do you want to do a 24 hours turn around?
Hey man, long time. Yes I kind of dropped off but now visiting more frequently as my lease is almost up in Oct and I too am deciding what to get. 535i or 550i. Considering the 535i front bumper looks like crap, and the 550i's MPG is as bad as a SUV and expensive Sports Package makes the choice real difficult this time around. Have you looked at the MF and Residuals? I'm sure they will get better by Sept/Oct, but then again, it's really is no where close to a good of a deal as what we got.
