Hi all, long time lurker, still “looking” but figured I’d post here in case there were any obvious matches out there. I’ve begun doing some of the legwork but have hit a few dead ends (especially with Acura, sheesh!), especially around apparently inflated money factors (at least compared to what I see on the forum and the edmunds model specific leasing forums).
- 2018/19 - BMW X3/Audi Q5/Acura RDX OR $550 month OR Wagon/SUV with AWD and higher end features
Mainly looking for a nicer wagon/SUV with AWD with similar cargo capacity as the previous mentioned. Budget is $550/month max. Typically go with feature loaded if possible: I want stuff like Apple CarPlay (and Android Auto if it isn’t a BMW … grrrr). Maybe would consider the X1, but hoping for a bit more space and power. Honestly just haven’t researched Infiniti, Lexus, Volvo or MB yet. My slightly more wild-side definitely leans towards the SQ5 or M40i if there is a deal to be had.
Will consider loaners (I see BMWs, not sure which other brands do this as well).
- 36month 12k or 10k, possibly entertain 24month.
I’ve done two leases (and all purchases before that), neither of which came even close to hitting the mileage limit (current is 36/12 and will likely be under 30k miles at turn in), so 36/10 is probably best.
- SF Bay Area/Northern California
Potentially willing to travel a bit (SoCal, most likely) for the right fit.
PM me here. New account since I have just been lurking, but have been checking the forum often and on for some time.
Current lease is a Ford.
Apologies for writing a novel, wanted to get as much info in there as possible.
