Jon,
I am doing a Euro delivery in November on a 330 coupe.
I know the drawbacks of leasing a Euro delivery car (payments but no car) but it will work out because I will be out of country anyway. I would appreciate if you could answer
these questions for me:

1) My dealer is using the Euro MSRP to calculate the
residual. Is that right? I believe it should be calculated on
the US MSRP (which means lower payments).

2) He is quoting 58% residual for 03 models. I believe
it was 60%. Am I correct?

3) Money factor of 0.0030 . I thought it
was around .0027. Damn stealer!!

Of course 2) and 3) depend on when I get the car but I
am interested in what those numbers are currently for 03 models.

Thanks for saving me!

Residual values are calculated from the standard U.S. MSRP, not
the ED MSRP... That's precisely what makes the option attractive.

The current 330Ci residual for 36 months / 15K mi/yr. = 60%.
58% is for a 2002.

As for the rent-charge factor, your estimate is pretty accurate,
especially if you are new to BMWFS, and don't want to pay a
security deposit...

So I take it that if you pay the first security deposit the money factor should be lower than 0.0027? I know that multiple security deposits have an effect on the MF, but I'm not exactly sure what you are saying.

With a rate factor "bump" of .00015, you can waive the requisite
single security deposit (the base monthly payment rounded up to the nearest $50 increment..
