Looking to lease a 340i 2016. Here is the initial offer. I live near LA so lots of dealers.

Msrp 55270
Selling 49588
Money factor 0.00097
Residual 35925.50

Amount due at signing:
1st month: 469.98
Msd 3500
Acquisition 925
Fees and insurance 539
Upfront tax 156.41
Cap reduction (cash) 950
Total cash required on delivery : 6540.39

3yr 12k miles.
Base payment 435.16
Purchase option 35925.50

Not a bmw owner but looking for a entry level deciding between is350 f and this. I think the discount on lexus is greater compared to this. I would purchase the lexus amd lease bmw tho due to people talking about reliability. Havent test drove yet. Would it be cheaper once the 17s come in stock?

I am not an expert and I am sure others will chime in. There are threads on here that help you evaluate your lease, do a little search. In my opinion, I never put any cash down on a lease. Keep the money in the bank and take a little each month to help with the payment. remember if the car is totaled you lose any cash you put in. The other fees and the tax are up to you. some can be rolled into the lease and some can't. Enjoy the hunt.

Since it is a '16, I think you can shoot for $48.5k or lower as 12-13% off MSRP should be doable now. The MF seems to be 10 base points higher, as you should be looking at .00136 - 7 x .00007 = .00087, so ask your dealer to honor base rate. Would be a good deal if you can get those two numbers right. Also, why do you want to pay $950 down as cap reduction? It would be better to save that $ and do minimum down (i.e., only MSDs, DMV fees, acquisition fee).

By the way, some numbers are not right from what I can see. Why is there an 'upfront tax'? In CA the sales tax is on top of your monthly payment, and not a lump sum. Also, your number tells me the lease is based on 8% tax. I thought in LA area the tax rate is minimum of 9%?

Oh and give Greg Poland @ Pacific BMW a call. He may be able to give you a deal that you cannot refuse!

First thing to look at would be the mf. That's getting marked up after your MSDs. I would require base mf.

The sale price looks alright at about invoice, but being a 2016, you should aim to getting a better deal than that.

Your upfront fees don't look great. Why do a cap reduction of 950? If you avoid that, you also avoid the upfront tax on it. The fees look a little high but I believe "license"in California is pretty high.

The "upfront tax" is likely the tax on the cap cost reduction. Cap cost reduction is taxed here in california (including any cap cost reduction from incentives like loyalty discounts, or corporate discounts, but NOT option credits as those just reduce the selling price and are not considered cap cost reduction per dealers here.

Everything else looks pretty in line with california fees, and the price is good but since its a 2016 you might be able to do a little better. You are not getting ripped off if you take the deal as structured. As for the 950 cap cost reduction I would not personally do it, and I am not sure why they added it in there. You just want to check if your monthly payment quote is somewhat close to a $50 threshold how much cap cost reduction it takes to push it under that threshold if you are doing MSDs.

Since you are getting a 2016 greg may not be able to help you, but if you are looking at ordering a 2017 I would definitely send greg an email with your desired config to see what a 2017 would be if you wanted one of those.

Of course a 2017 would have 1 year less free maintenance and no brakes included in that, but for me thats a small thing... for others a lot bigger.
