Something wrong?

Can someone please tell me something is wrong in this situation.

I went to the dealer to look at an M3 that I saw online cause I'm ready to pull the trigger on a 2010. It was fully loaded basically and the price was 70,xxx.

I'm not really a buy person and I wanted to lease for three years.

He told me the price would be around $1500 a month with 10k down.

There has to be something wrong because I am paying 2k a month for a CL550 with 4k down. The CL is worth 125,xxx.

It does sound kind of high. To evaluate a lease deal, you need to find out these #s from the dealer:

- MSRP
- Negotiated selling price
- Residual
- Money factor
- Term, miles/year
- Sales tax rate

I would believe $1500 per month including sales tax and nothing down still leaving the dealer with a very respectable profit. There is most definitely something wrong here. Are you sure he wasn't meaning 10k miles per year?

Do you mind telling me which dealer u went??
leasing a 2010 with 10k down is kinda bs. 70,xxx msrp is really not a fully loaded. $1500 a month is the price for buying (loan). Price of leasing should be somewhere around $1000 a month.

I double checked a million times.. I went to BMW of Monrovia.

I'm gonna go again tomorrow and speak to a more knowledgeable person.

70,xxx had Nav, premium package, technology package, DCT, iPod, and all those goodies. Seemed full to me.

I knew what he said was outrageous, hopefully I can get something around $1000 with about 5k down, hopefully less.

What would you guys pay?

Here's an example:

2010 M3 Coupe with everything except 19" wheels (2MT):

$74,755 Retail
$68,810 Invoice

Add to that invoice amount...

$380 MACO (added by BMWNA to the invoice, paid by the dealer)
$180 Training Fee (added by BMWNA to the invoice, paid by the dealer)
$1,500 profit (just an example)
$45 documentation fee

...and you get a Cap Cost of:

$70,915

Assuming no Cap Cost Reduction, a term of 3 years @ 10k miles per year giving a residual of 54% and a buy rate MF of 0.00245 (no MSDs), and the lease acquisition fee at the buy rate of $725...

The monthly payment including CA sales tax will be $1,230.49 and the drive off will be $2,965.93 (includes first month's payment, the acquisition fee, sales tax on the acquisition fee, and DMV fees of $938.75).

A term of 3 years @ 15k miles per year would yield a monthly of $1,292.83 and a drive off of $3,028.27.

A term of 2 years @ 10k miles per year (58% residual) would yield a monthly of $1,567.43 and a drive off of $3,302.87.

So you can see a 10k down, or even a drive off, is ridiculous. You should also be able to get the profit down unless the car supply is running very short.

try to talk to George if you can, he's the fleet manager/lease specialist.

I was quoted $1000 over invoice without negotiation from the following dealers

McKenna, Shelly, Crevier, and New Century. Dealer invoice should be around $500 (MACO + training) above the invoice posted here. I'm pretty sure this deal can be easily beaten.

I recomed you to go New Century BMW, easier and nicer ppl to talk to. PM me if Monrovia didn't get you a good price, you can try to talk to my sales rep at NCB.
