Pulled ahead on a new M3

Been lurking the M3 forum ever since I leased my 2006 330I. I have enjoyed the 330I greatly and received the opportunity from BMW to get out of my lease three months early with there pull ahead program. I was considering running my lease out and ordering the new 335D and pick it up in November. On a whim I stopped by the dealership and noticed they had a few M3's still on the lot so decided to see what I could do on an in stock 08. I love the latest and greatest but if I could get into a 08 M3 for a good price I could live without the new Idrive and taillights. After a few phone calls and some heavy negotiations I ended up doing a two year lease with a negotiated cap cost of $1000 under invoice.

Specs:
Jerez Black
Black Novillo Leather
Black Sycamore trim
Premium Package
Technology Package
Cold Weather Package
Premium Sound
Moonroof
Satallite
Ipod Adapter

Sounds like you got a great deal! Car looks beautiful. I'd like to hear your thoughts after you've driven the M3 for a while, compared to your old 330i.

It was a great deal and I have noticed a few things between the two. The logic 7 stereo in the 330I I believe sounded better. I might have to tweak the premium sound some more but so far I believe the 330I stereo to be better. I have also noticed that the Idrive display is not as nice as on the 330I. It seems that the resolution or something is just not as good. Seems to be a lower quality screen. The cup holders and vents seem to be a cheaper quality also. I guess there must of been a lower bid on a few of these items and quality has paid the price. Beyond that the car seems great, I have only had it for two days now so I am still in the break in period so I will try to post back with more impressions.

I like the wood a lot also, I know everyone says the M cars should not have wood but I enjoy a little luxury with my performance. In different sunlight the wood looks incredible, my fiancee stated it looked like snake skin in some light. So wood definitely has some character to it.

Yes I have a 8 year old son, so a four door just works out much better. It is also much more stealth. Well to some degree, I had a public transportation driver the other day hanging out his side window in his bus giving me the thumbs up.

That's a great picture of the interior because it shows the sycamore in shade and sunlight side-by-side. Congrats on the great deal and new car!

I am thinking of leasing an E92 when it is time, and would like to know what is the max cap cost I should accept from a dealer? What is the max and low of cap cost anyone should accept? What if I want to increase my mileage to 12K - 15K a year instead of the standard 10K a year?

It all depends on what car, market you are in, and whether you are ordering new or buying something on the lot. I would always work off of invoice and make an offer which you think is fair. I made a low ball offer but I knew that there were dealers within 2 hours driving time of me willing to do the deal with 6MT cars they had in stock. Increasing the mileage does not matter just plug in the correct residual value for the mileage terms. I ended up with a two year 12,000 mile per year lease.

I think its great, as stated before it offers a nice luxurious look to the interior. So basically I have a very sporty and luxurious car all in one. It is also nice having something a little more rare than the typical aluminium or carbon interior.

I could be mistaken, but the only wood trim on the bmwusa configurator is titled "Sycamore Anthracite Wood Trim"

Grats!

When I first started reading I thought you were going to tell us your 330 "pulled ahead" on an M3

The wood does look nice.
