I finally did get a quote on the 03 325Ci i was looking for, not that great a deal.. but to the point..
is it possible to order a 03 now and lease it? one of the dealers quoted me ridiculous 'estimated' terms ($840 driveoff, with $540 monthly for 12000 miles per year on a 3 year lease)
do i have to wait until the car comes in to 'negotiate' the terms? what if we can't agree on mutual terms and the car's already built?
mgs333 said:so far i only have several quotes on just the purchase price since i originally planned to purchase.. i'm actually surprised that cutter's quote is the highest amongst the quotes i've gotten..
with leasing, i couldn't give a rat's ass about the car price they're giving me, the only things i'm concerned about are the driveoff and the monthly payments..
as far as leasing quotes, i only have one so far, i've only started asking around yesterday, the one quote is:
with $830 driveoff, $560/month inc. tax
or $2000 driveoff, $523/month
or $5885 driveoff, $400/month..
all 12000miles/yr, 3 year lease. i have excellent credit (FICO 750) and live in orange county 7.75% tax rate..
that's his 'estimated' terms based on 02 terms..
but if i go to bmw's website.. i get these terms which i would assume the dealers can probably do better than.. (i'd guess this would be like the 'msrp' of lease??)
bmw site estimates: (36 month, 12k/year lease)
with $2500 down, $432/month
with $0 down, $508/month..
obviously, he's trying to rip me off bad..
another dealer has told me that they can't yet give
me any lease terms since
bmw financial hasn't released any numbers..
so are you saying i should wait until bmw releases leasing terms before i order? when are those numbers expected? i'd guess once the cars hit the showrooms? so when is that?

that if you were willing to be patient, we could do a lot better.
My pencil can be as sharp as anybody's - especially for a board member.
I can give them away with the best of them. Just for
the hell of it, I often take "goofy" deals - because I can.
No manager "to check with"...
Conclusion: Find you best deal, let me know what it is
(I'll know if it's legit, or not), and I will beat it. Period.
I'll even trade to get you an extra allocation to fill your order

The money factor should be around 6% (.0025) and not
the insanely high 9% (.00375). At least I am getting
.0025 on a 03 330Ci.
