She's looking at a 325xi with the following...
Steptronic
wood trim
leather
Power seats
Metallic paint
Destination fee


33,060.00...10,00 miles for 36 months...$498.00

This is in Boston...

Thoughts? Fair deal? John? Thanks...

Good deal for Mom?

Jon asked me to post for him for a while when I have time. In order to answer your question, let me know if she is putting any money down to get to that payment.

I don't know how Boston ranks comapred to Charlotte, but that sounds kind of high to me. Maybe I got a better deal than I thought, but on hers, the alotted mileage is lousy, she has a few options that would be better attained thru the PP rather than individually, and it's a 325.

See what Franco has to say. I'd shop around, or at least call other dealers and ask for quotes. Go with the best one, or goto the closest and ask them to beat/match it.

Also try going to some web sites and spec-ing the car out with all the options. I know Yahoo, AAA, maybe carpoint? have this feature somewhere in their sites. You should come up with an invoice price and the MSRP. You'll know if something doesn't add up... :D Good luck!

Franco...

She's not putting any money down...She going from a 528i to the 325xi..she thought the 5 was "too much car" for her...this is her third BMW so there is no deposit...

Thanks to all...

I got a 2002 325I Leased for $511.10 but I got the following options:

- Manual
- Xenon Lights
- Sunroof
- Metallic Paint
- Sport Package
- HK Sound

Gave $2,000 down to cover, tax, title and lic. 15K a year 42 mo. lease

Just for comparison.

Is 10K miles a year enough for her? Just checking the BMWUSA website, the explore finance section, the payment is in line with what they quote (actually is $16 more in the site) I found this site pretty accurate, my payment was $4 less than the one calculated in the site.

Now, if I were you I will deal a little more with the dealership; $1100 less than MSRP is not much of a discount. I got $2000 off MSRP for a 330i with no sweat. Maybe in Boston 325xi's are hot but still there is room to negotiate.

Did you compare this lease with a 330i? The interest rate on 330i leases are at 4.9%. I just did this simple computation again in the site and this 330i that your mother wants will pay $540 if you can get a $1500 discount and no metalic paint. With metalic paint is $550. Assuming that this estimate is on the high side, maybe we are talking of $30 to $40 more a month vs. a 325i lease.

Remember if you have been a BMWCCA member for the last year you will get a $500 check once you take delivery of the car; that is something that you can think about.

Good luck.
