thanks for the replies, did a little more research on leases last night and I understand a lot more now. Dealers probalby hate people like me who use the internet to gain knowledge
So the money factor is huge, I had two dealers tell me they only use BMW finance for leases which means that is probably set in stone, as long as they are not marking it up higher than BMW is. The way to get it cheaper than the advertised leases is by negotiating the "selling price"
So am I to assume those advertised leases on BMWUSA.com are based on MSRP and if you back it out you can figure out the money factor? then based on that money factor and a negotiated price, you can figure a lease on your custom built car and actually get better pricing than advertised?
Does anyone know what the money factor is on the 2013 3 series?
