Delivery of 2013 135i

Coming off lease of my 09' 135i and I just took delivery of this 2013!



The Car
Le Mans Blue
M Sport Package
Technology Package
Premium Package
DCT
Harmon Kardon
Black Leather w/ Glacier Aluminum Trim

The Deal
MSRP: $48,120
Selling Price: $43,100 (~$500 over invoice - $1000 Drive for Team USA, and $750 Loyalty)
Miles per year: 15k
Residual: 57%
Money Factor: .0011 (.00145 - 5 MSDs)

First Impressions (after about 200 miles):
- Le Mans Blue is a gorgeous color in person. Pictures (mine included) don't begin to do it justice.
- Sport seats are amazing! I didn't realized that the side bolsters were adjustable (judging from the sound they make, they use airbags).
- I had Premium sound in my 09' but the Harmon Kardon is definitely an improvement. Richer Lows, and cleaner highs/mids. Worth every penny.
- The DCT is a little clunky at low speed (right now) and it's taking a bit of getting used to. But, when you're pushing it, the speed of the shifts is amazing, and imho it makes paddle shifters - which I didn't use previously because they weren't quick enough for me - actually worth it.
- The stock exhaust sounds great, it's much raspier, yet still refined. On up shifts in sport mode you get a nice little burble (which my 09' didn't do).
- The run flats seem to be a newer generation because they don't seem as harsh as those that came on the previous car. I still wan't to replace them, but definitely an improvement.

That's all I've got for now, I'm going for a spin If you want pictures of anything or details of the deal let me know and I can update this thread.

Congrats!

Blue has never been my color but I've really come around on LMB. My '09 was space gray and I just ordered a 135is in the same color, but I definitely thought about the LMB with the blue-stitched black leather option. Def a head-turner.

That car is sick! The exact color I want to buy. Thanks for sharing the car and the numbers - you just saved me some research for my negotiation! I will be on my second 135i as well.

Hahaha. My buddy has the same paint. Mine is montego metallic blue. I can tell a difference only every once and while. Have them next to each other alot. Glad I don't have to turn mine in. N54 is pushing slightly more power right now than the N55. Funny seeing my car in your picture. Haha.

you'll get used to that pull-toward-you-push-forward motion on the shifter pretty quickly

Nice looking car! I'm considering leasing an 135 and have never leased before. Is your residual based off the MSRP, or the selling price? Thanks

(if it's from the MSRP you can purchase it at the end of lease for $27,428...?)

Thanks!

Residual value is based on MSRP so yes, at the end of my lease I have the option to purchase the car for $27,428.

If you lease without knowing how to properly do it you'll most likely get taken for a ride. Check out the sites below if leasing is something you're considering, you'll more than likely save yourself a lot of time and money.
