I want to buy used this time, for a change, haha.booblehead wrote: ↑Dec 2nd, 2017 4:26 pmIf you are going to spend like mid $40's + taxes, why don't you consider of getting a 330 instead ? (slightly more comfortable and there is a base $1750 factory credit in December, perhaps, a bit more factory bonus credit just prior to X'mas). As for the engine, the current 2L engine seems to be okay and I have not seen any major issues thus far.
I checked leasebuster and even with 28 to 30 months remaining and with a $3-4k down payment, total after tax is in the high $30's to low 40's. Isn't BMW's lease rates below 2.49% for 4 years on a 2 Series? It seems interest on these cars have eaten a good chunk of the lease payments. It's understandable because 2.5% on a $60k car is around $1400-1500 the first year.
You are right, the 2015 428i xDrive can be had for about the same price on autotrader.
