I’ve got a 2021 BMW 540i XDrive on order, should be in my hands in the next 6-8 weeks. I’d like to have a new car every 2 years, yes it’s a luxury I know and I’ll be paying a lot for the depreciation but hey, life is short. I’ve got $2500 down on it to secure the build slot and I’d love to hear your thoughts on how I could make this work. Plus I see there’s cost benefits in (usually) not having to replace tires and brakes within 24 months.
Price is $66985 after dealer discounts, prior to any new incentives I could apply in August/September (I should be able to get at the very least $2000 more off through my corporate program which has to be updated for 2021 models but let’s ignore that for now). Dealer conveyance and registration and fees is $1350 on top.
Running it through their online “Accelerate My Deal” lease calculator (which does calculates taxes for here in Boston 02118 and adds acquisition fees etc) I have a lease repayment of $1339/month for 24mo/12000 miles.
Is that right?? What do you think is the BMW residual on this?
