I think I got the calc to match on that point, payment is still $50/mo too high
I’d be asking the dealer for a quote with just $0 + MSDs DAS. On this MF you’re probably paying $225 over the lease to roll everything in, but it makes comparison easier and you can always decide to pay Acq and/or taxes upfront when it’s time to sign.
I suspect a broker can get you a better deal right now.
Sure. But a broker with an MD dealer will cost him $100 over what he has now with VA dealer plus possible bigger savings, as I said. Not everyone can negotiate to the same price as brokers offer. Just an option.
It’ll be hard or nearly impossible for a broker to meet or exceed this offer and make it make sense with a $400+ broker fee. Thats 2/3 of a % when there’s not much meat in the bones left here. I seem to recall reading there was 11% margin on the C40 for the dealer and he’s at 8% already.
His only hope for a better deal is a MD dealer with a lower doc fee, hence my suggestion of those three dealers.
That’s my point. $900-$500=$400 to offset most or all of the broker fees and go from there. Or, if he can negotiate himself with any MD dealer AND get that extra 2% ($1,200) is even better.
p.s. good luck with Bethesda and probably with Silver Spring (“we don’t lease loaners”) lol
12% on your first ever lease? Dropping lease terminology like a pro? 1st post on LH? Something is not adding up. Went to an aggressive Volvo dealer in NY and they told me to kick rocks and they do deals at 10% off.
