Can I expect similar payments?

Hi Guys,

I just priced out a 328xi to 37,270 for comparison's sake. For a 36 month lease with 15k a year and 2500 down, the estimated lease price is $472. Is it realistic to think that is what the 1 series would cost me? If not, how much more should I expect? Thanks

Make sure that the model you chose for a comparison does not have any special lease offers. I would look at other models with similar #s (e.g. 335 coupe) that may have comparable lease offers (I expect no special lease on the 135). Mine differed from $695 to $800. I calculated in the tax in my #s.

35,675 msrp
46,770 with options
3,391 sales tax

50,161 Tolal ouch!

Thanks for the response. Looks like you really maxed your 1 series out, should be a great car. I dont think id be going with many options as it would push it out of my price range so im figuring around 37k for what I would be getting.

I dont think the lease price i calculated was a special offer as it was just the payment estimator. I just hope the lease prices are reasonable and dont get inflated initially.

Yep, he added just about every option. Most people will not be going his route.

idrive135i,
If you want that many options(more luxury), I would go with a 3-series or even a 5-series. The 135i is ment to be more of a raw car.

I see you have a A3, if you option out a A3 3.2 your easlily looking at 44,000, it is much slower and less performance oriented. So a optioned out 135i at 47k would be very similar payments, I know which car I would rather have.
