Well, to each his own, but the 330 is dead, hence the better money rates, and the 328 coupe is brand spanking new which equates to a premium in money rates.bk330ci said:you heard this from your client advisor? i dont see a thread on Ask A Dealer (maybe I'm blind)
anyway the low residual makes lease deals pretty unattractive IMHO -- when comparing 2006 330i at .00175 MF and 74% residual vs 2007 328i coupe at .0020 MF and 72% residual
(both residuals have the extra 3% due to 10k lease),
then the 2006 330i comes out $65/mo cheaper
this is with the same options:
metallic, sport, premium, gps, heated seats, comfort access, logic7 on the 328i (standard on the 330i), same markup over invoice
I have placed my 2006 330i ED order but am able to back out based on the E92 lease terms when they are announced -- at this point I'm sticking with the 2006 330i even though I do like the appearance of the coupe better.
Actually it would make more sense if the 328 coupe and 335i coupe had higher residual, but instead it is LOWER than the soon-to-be-replaced 330i.greginaz1 said:Well, to each his own, but the 330 is dead, hence the better money rates, and the 328 coupe is brand spanking new which equates to a premium in money rates.
BMW uses a mix of MF and residual depending on market conditions...the 330 has an unrealistically high residual and a pretty decent MF to move them...which will get lower when the 335 sedan is released.bk330ci said:Actually it would make more sense if the 328 coupe and 335i coupe had higher residual, but instead it is LOWER than the soon-to-be-replaced 330i.
And the 330i only has slightly lower MF -- .00175 vs .0020 -- if it were truly dead and they were using MF as a strong incentive I'd expect to see .0010 etc
Numbers came from a dealer...MF is buy rate and my original post states the residuals are for 15K miles...how is that confusing?CrashOveride said:uhmmm this thread way confusing no background on were you got these rates could be just a number a dealership was willing to negioate to...?? how many miles 10...12...15... a year I will wait until I see something more substantial and then posted in the correct forum (the dealer)
You are doing something wrong...payment should be in the $600 area.dencoop said:Wow that is very good news...just for kicks I priced a
335i w Sport pkg,Heated Seats
1k over invoice
24 month, 10k a year
Mass tax in the payment (5%), Bank Fee in the payment (625%)
7 MSDs I got a buy rate of .0015 + .0003 = .0018 (for ED)
500 down (since I get it back from BMCCA anyway)
Monthly payment is $379 (+/- a few bucks) This is a very good deal WOW:thumbup:
+1, your math is waaayy off.greginaz1 said:You are doing something wrong...payment should be in the $600 area.
