I'm not sure what's you point of inflation in this thread is, neither.

My point is that BMW 5.9% for 72 months is nothing to brag about, much less to even say that it is a "good" rate and that it is not based on any inflation. It is most probably due to the 44,000 units production cut for the USA this year becoming a permanent cut from now on due to low sales, so BMW it is just adjusting their profit margin accordingly wherever they can, like increases lease and finance rates, .4% MSRP increase this January, and a possible 5% additional increase in MSRP next March.
