MF and residual trends?

Hey have any of you guys bought your cars in the winter months (Nov, Dec, Jan) and noticed a trend in the MF and residual rates for these months? Logic tells me that rates should go down since I am sure that sales go down. What do you guys think? I am hoping so since my car will be here early Jan.

between septtember and october...lease rates did not change...perhaps we will see some end of year incentives, I know when I took delivery of my e60 back in 12/07 rates were better than when I ordered in 10/07..so thankfully I was able to take advantage of the better rate.....

This site has BMW's lease rates for the last few years. It'll take a little digging, but you can find what you are seeking. Report back and let us know!

Thanks for your help! I did my research on this site and they show a consistent and current MF rate of .0018 and residual of 57% however, my dealer is insisting that this is wrong. They are telling me that the MF is .0022 and the residuals are 57% for 15k miles, 59% for 12k miles, and 60% for 10k miles. All on a 36month lease.

Is this right?

All 3 residuals are correct for the miles. The rate is correct, @ .00180 they can charge you .00040 to make money on the finance, but its only like $800 so just split it .00020
and take a rate of .00200

Residuals for E93s have gone up to the 65-67% range (depending upon miles and location, afaik). That can make a convertible's lease rate very appealing.

Your dealer is lying to you. To me it's indicative of the dealer and the relationship. When I negotiate the price of the car, I do allow them a reasonable profit as the market dictates (we're all in business to make a little money), but then I don't budge on the extra add-ons. Like marking up financing. I've walked away from more than one deal because someone wants to mark up financing.

hmm .. after reading this thread.. you guys got me thinking.. i went back and tracked the M3 E93 residauls and MF back about 24 months.. and just to satisfy myself.. right now the residual is highest, and the money factor is lowest.. i did not look at the coupe or sedan, as they are not always relative...
