Typically when a 3 is launched they (BMW) pitch a value story, lease payments at launch that are comparable to the outgoing model.i probably should have asked if the following:
1) will the residual will drop for the 2012s? right now the 2011s are at 60% for 36 mos.
2) one of the car magazines is saying the 2012s will start at $35,100. is that MSRP? what did the 2011s start at?
it seems as though the southern california dealers don't have much more than black and white with the options i want. guess i waited to long to get my poop in a group...
Usually, an all-new 3 boasts a strong residual from ALG, relative to other models since it is BMWs bread and butter car.
