I know that coz I just checked with a dealer for the payment of the same car my buddy got 3 months ago.
I don't know the answer, but what I do know is that finance rates have gotten more favorable. It was easy to get 5.5% 14 mos. ago for a 60 mo. loan, and today it's 4.8-5%'ish. From what people are saying, it sounds like lease payments have gone up. One guy who crashed his 335 seems to be saying he can't afford to replace it with an '08, so he was looking at a g37. Leasing is funny, one day you have a nice car, the next you could have anything--something nicer, the same, or not as nice. But one thing is clear, at the end of the day, you have nothing to show for all those payments except memories.
