I was told that the 2013 X5 diesel will be available in December 2012. Nobody knows if it will be equipped with the 8 speed transmission ( not sure if this is a good or bad thing ), for sure it will be more fuel efficient.
I've decided to lease a 2012 X5 diesel, 3 years, 12k miles/year, premium package and BMW apps, total MSRP including destination fee, $61,345.
After $4,500 eco credit, $1,000 olympic drive discount, $750 loyalty discount and negotiation, I was able to lower the price to $51,455.
Money factor is 1.45 and residual 56$.
Monthly payment, including tax, $647, 0 down payment
Never leased before and was wondering if this is a good deal, or not. Please let me know your thoughts.
