Unfortunately, I dont know what a good discount for a 1er is these days. I got about 8 points off of sticker when I bought my car 4 years ago.
I found out the sticker price for the car is $37,950.00 and then she needs to pay $3,860 to end the lease of her Mini.

However, she just told me the $624.00 per month is based on a balloon payment, so at the end there is still payment of just over $11,000.00.

I told her not to do it. I have balloon payments, its rigged for people that can't really afford the car, or get tricked into the low monthly payments. At the end of the day, you have paid too much for it.

I'm going to Downtown BMW tomorrow, and see what I can get a sale rep to give me for the same car she wants.
