M3deal advice

Hi all

I had given up on getting an M3 but have been offered a deal today that has got me thinking. The deal is to lease a brand new M3 for 7k down and 600 a month for either 30 or 36 months it's my choice

This is for a dct M3 with 18's, they offered me 13k for my e92 so would also walk away with 6k cash, I have said I want 10k in cash and they will come back with a counter offer. Does this seem like a good deal ?

There are a few things putting me off 1st in the wheels, but I'm not a big fan of the 19's either I really want the comp pack wheels, the 2nd thing is will I regret not getting the comp pack ?

Also if I do go for the above deal is there any extras other than Bluetooth I really need ? I have seen there is a limited edition 500 model so have ask for a price on this as well.

Sorry for all the questions but didn't know who else to ask lol

First of all....why buy a M3 now....the new model will be out soon !
my advice to you would be wait for the new model.

If you cannot wait ...then spec the car with EDC, DCT, comfort access and heated seats are a "must" :

Crap deal mate. You'd be better off with this deal, it'll save you 3.5k deposit with the same monthly payment. It also comes with 19's, DCT and other options.

Yes you can add options but this will increase the payments. I don't know if they'd deliver to Essex you'll have to ask.

I have just shown my dealer the deal you linked on piston heads and he has agreed to match it and swap the heated seats for the upgraded speakers and mobile apps does this sound like a good deal now ?

Well it's miles better than the offer you originally had. I presume this also includes road tax for the duration of the term. I'd say it was a decent deal.

I had coral red interior in my 335. The red in my M3 is fox red and is quite a bit different, it's less bright and more a browny red.

7k depo is way too much. Around 3.5k is the norm. Also how many miles per year and does the deal include road tax for three years?

The depo is normally some many months payments. EG 600 x 6.
So you actually have your deal based on 36 months.

You have more change of getting your extras discounted IMO.

media package
mobile app's
electric mirrors
carbon trim
Business speakers
Shadow line exterior

Color is mineral white - Just got pick the interior colour before Monday
