The make / model of the car would be helpful, as would MSRP and the invoice you calculated (you did calculate the invoice on a car this expensive, right?) :thumbup:Selling Price: 109,750

Term: 36

Money Factor .00138

Capped Fees: $1,262

Taxes: $6,859

Adjusted Cap Cost: $117,861

Is July better than June? Any observations or comments?

I can look back and capture June, when I ordered.Have you run the numbers through a lease calculator? You might want to consider paying the fees and taxes up front rather than rolling them in and paying interest on them. The July base MF is .00137, which equates to a 3.288% interest rate.

Will do calculator.

Will pay taxes up front as it will help the payment.

Anything else.

Yes, I have run the number and have agreed to a price on the car, as shown.The make / model of the car would be helpful, as would MSRP and the invoice you calculated (you did calculate the invoice on a car this expensive, right?) :thumbup:

Leases can get tricky, so thought I'd run the numbers by you guys before either shooting it altogether and buying, against my accountant's advice, if things got messy.

I have since edited the original post, to include the model, the invoice price was there, just under capital cost.

Have you considered doing multiple security deposits? Do you understand them? They lower the money factor andI can look back and capture June, when I ordered.

How was your experience on the 2009 750i, e.g. is the resale good, and is there any repair beyond warranty? If the model is typically unreliable with accumulated miles, and/or the resale drops significantly, then leasing can be good.

As far as ROI of MSD, do note that MSD by definition can be forfeited, so the ROI analysis assumes sufficient cash buffer such that the forfeiting is a non-event.

I did a little math. Given the numbers in your original post doing 7 MSDs totaling $10,500 ($1,500 x 7) would save about $93/month on the payment. 0.00137 x 2,400 = 3.288% v 0.00088 x 2,400 = 2.112%. With an initial "investment" of $10,500 that saving equates to a 10.6% annual ROI.

I'm pretty sure he's leasing because he can write off the expense as a business expense.

The only way MSDs could be forfeited (short of BMWFS going belly-up) would be if the car was returned in horrible shape or he decided to stop making his lease payments.

I paid cash for the 09, against my accountant's advice. I didn't care until he showed me what a difference it would make in my taxes--that got my attention. My 09 was very reliable, and I sold her for cash, as accountant requested. Good point on forfeiture. When interest rates are this low, using my cash for depreciating assets is a poor idea, however; I hate debt. I'm learning to play the tax game, I suppose, reluctantly.

Great point. Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
