I'm new to the forum, thinking of trading in my '99 Civic SE tomorrow for a brand new 325i (3-yr lease).
Any comments or suggestions? Something I should watch out for or be concerned about?
Don't let the stealer screw you with a bad money factor and residual. Mine came back with rediculous numbers before ever running a credit check. I already had financing and he had the car on the lot, so I just paid for it and gave him a bad review when the dealer called for my survey.
Educate yourself on what is a good money factor. It does not equal a percentage rate. The one he gave me was equal to 10% financing.
I am paying $25 more per month than his lease offer.
