$1000 to lease a convert? Will it get better?

My lease is up on my Z4 and I wanted to get the new E93, but at full MSRP, high money factors, and low residuals, the payments are around $1000. Just not a good value IMO. I just can't justify spending that much for a 3 series. I think you can get into a 6 series for that much.

Anyhow, don't flame me but I'm actually considering a 15 month lease on a G35 coupe for just over $500 a month. I figure in 15 months, the lease cost on the E93 should be reasonable. Hopefully, $1500 off MSRP and money factors around .0018. Is this realistic?

I know, the G35 is not a BMW, but it's a fair value at least.

Is this a good strategy or just wishful thinking?

Did you look at an E92 instead of an E93 or G35? What would the lease be on that the way you want it configured?

2 yr E92 Lease is

A 2yr 335 coupe lease with 12k miles ranges from $803 to $827 (depending on dealer). This includes 7.75% Calif. tax.

This was my second choice for a vehicle, but it's a bit pricey too. 3 years would bring it down to about $745, but I would prefer a two year so I can get into the E93 eventually.

I guess I was spoiled. My wifes '04 328 was only $400 and my '04 z4 was only $600. Money factors, discounts, and residuals were much better in 2004.

This is probably at MSRP. You should consider doing European Delivery. It saves a bunch of money and you get a trip perhaps you and your wife could make a second honeymoon out of it (and in style too).

Those lease amounts are with either $600 or $1250 off of msrp and a decent money factor of .0019 and .0017. I wonder if the discounts will ever get much better than this on the 335i coupe. I would think so, but when?
