I've been in the market for a lease on a 2000 528i for a while now. I've been reading this board for a while now and have a fair idea of what a competitive deal would look like. So, I decided to stop by Weatherford BMW and challenge them to counter the following offer from "another" dealer :-) in the area.
invoice + $1500 on a 528i with the following options:
silver/grey, auto, xenon, rear air bags & shades, moonroof, premium pkg, park distance control
Guess what ... they accepted it (invoice + $1400) with the following lease terms:
12k miles/year and money factor of 275 and a residual of 67%
I was very insistent that there be NO last minute surprises and am hoping they stick to their end of the bargain!
Can't wait long enough (an october production slated for delivery mid/end Nov).
