Ontario (excl Ottawa) is running Toronto auto show special offers on 4 series

$3000 factory credit + 1% rate reduction
Hi booblehead,

I am going back to the dealer tonight to negotiate. Other than factory credit, should I target certain % off MSRP?

I also noticed that the dealer has some 18 340s in inventory that I am willing to take. What kind of discount and lease rate should I be aiming for?

What is a reasonable amount of PDI?

Thanks a lot!

for the 440, aim at 6-6.5% dealer side.

I have seen the leftover 18 340's being discounted by nearly $10,000. In other words, $10,000 / $67,000 (for example configured) would be 15% grand total off ... maybe another 3% to be haggled with seems possible. Not too bad. But it comes down to what kind of residual & interest rate BMWFS is assigning them right now.

reasonable PDI ... you should be looking at $2500 range. wheel locks, mats, vin etching fee, nitrogen air ... could easily add up to $1000 (if dealer wants to rip you off big time)

Are you going to head there?
I RSVP'd and received a confirmation. Going to make an effort to go after work.

The 0.99% for teh X1 is not an autoshow rate. This is the rate for February program . The rate is for 2018 model. Its a great deal depending on the % thats held by the dealer. Freight & PDI is always a plus when its taken off however it does come out of the cars markup anyways. There might be some write downs depending on when exactly the car was registered. The only downside to demo is that the warranty & maintenance package that's included in the car starts the day the car is registered as a demo. If its more than 4-6 months I would say you're better off just getting a new X1 if you're leasing the car.

Make sure you get all the information before you go ahead. You don't want to lease a car that has already half a year worth of warranty and maintenance used up.

I'm contemplating a BMW M4 lease - i've been interested by M3s but always seem pretty pricey. I'm seeing M4s on leasebusters.ca for like 1k all in/mo which is pretty good for essentially a 2 door M3

My current car is a 2018 q50 with piggy back turbo which i am enjoying and has decent power + AWD

Wondering how i'd feel spending an extra 500$ for the M4 and the RWD.....

What do you guys think?

Not worth it. Buy a used M3/M4 for like 45-50K and sell it in 3 years for 25K. The cost over 3 years is like 20K-25K or $555-$694 / month AND it is under full CPO warranty (until 160,000km). Way cheaper and if you do it right, maintenance is already completed by the time you buy it for 45-50K.
