This is a BMW 2019 x5 40i loaner that has roughly 4300 miles. Because it’s a loaner, they give me a discount of $7268 (10%) for those 4300 miles. I also have loyalty and recent grad incentives ($2250). $5000 down payment is the trade-in value of my current BMW. The dealer said it’s called cap reduction, so how’s it different from down payment? Also, the money didn’t add up in the calculator, so I guess I have a wrong residual? (I forgot to ask them about residual) The dealer said to get CCA discount you have to have more than 1-year membership with them?

I am in TX, so taxes are included in the monthly payments. The dealer wouldn’t go any lower than this offer. Should I just walk away? Please tell me what you think! Thanks.

Promptly walk away, that discount could be had on a new one and the payment would be lower(no miles to ding the residual) continue to get more quotes from other dealers.

If you haven’t seen my last post, you are welcome to see it first. So this is becoming more and more interesting as the dealership contacted me few hours later after I walked out of their door. They are willing to sell me this new MSRP 70k x5 which I am interested in for 690 a month. Still, 5k for my current 2013 335i and recent grad + loyalty. They are asking me to sign it on Monday or the offer expires. I should ask for more discounts, right?

Still, the numbers don’t add up in the calculator. I don’t know how to treat the 5k trade-in. If I put it in the down payment, the monthly goes down to 555. If I get rid of it, the monthly becomes to 710 which is closer to their offers. Any thoughts?

Thank you for your reply. I am working with the dealer toward that direction. The monthly payments in this quote includes the trade-in “down payment” of my current car: $5000. They are not willing to cut a check for my car. They said if I don’t want to trade-in, the monthly payments will roughly go up for $150 which I think it’s not good. My offer to them was $710/month 0 down no trade-in max MSD, cash due first month, take or leave. Waiting for their response on Monday.

Screw the trade in with that dealership. Take it elsewhere. Can check Carmax too etc.

Also, you should really look at the total value of the lease, rather than focus on monthly. Think of the effective payments i.e. Monthly + Down/lease term. Is this deal worth $850/m to you?
