I am in DMV region and currently leasing Volvo XC90, lease ends at the end of April and looking for replacement. I am considering BMW X7 but trying to figure out how to go best about it in making a deal. I know that the existing dealer doesn’t have BMW dealership and here in MD we have taxes on the sale price and not the monthly lease so looking for some strategies/ideas/info.
p.s. I got a quote from vroom for XC90 which would leave me with ~$280 in my pocket after payoff.
I’m at 8% off on X7 40is (as of tonight and could change tomorrow) because stock and availability is still really thin. I’m at 10% off an X7 M50i, but the MD tax would be a killer on that. The compromise may be an X5 with a third row, which are also 10% off. Let me know, @desi4life!
If any dealer can give you anything reasonable for your XC90, it would be a Volvo dealer. Otherwise, your tax credits will be negated by the negative equity (it will not make sense when trading your XC90 anyway, IMO)
@Ursus is correct. The dealership tries to avoid trades and complicating things too. Feel free to email me at email@example.com to discuss discounts, etc. I have a meeting later to see if anything is changing but as far as I know we’re still at 10% on everything but the X7 40i, which is 8%, and all discounts are the same for ordering or on the lot.
