Greetings all. I came across this forum last week and find it very informative. I was wondering if you experts could help out a BMW newbie. I am about to go the dealer to lease an 04 325i and wanted to know what a good selling price would be. I want my payments to be in the $340 range and would like to know what my down payment should be to reach that monthly payment. I am not too familiar with leasing. I live in Kalifornia, San Francisco/East Bay. I know someone at Weatherford BMW (Berkeley) but I know he will try to screw me somewhere in the deal
I would like a 325i with the following:
Titanium Silver/Black Leather
Heated Seats (not the sport)
I have a 2003 VW Passat GLX with all the bells in whistles which I may trade (but I doubt it).
Any kind of high-level ideas/opinions would be greatly appreciated. I may take the plunge either tomorrow or this weekend.
Thanks much in advance!
