Seriously looking at M135i

The M135i is looking more and more tempting. Did the winter wheels swap today and local dealer had am Estoril Blue M135i which looked pretty tasty.

So, who's offering the best lease deals? Got a standard quote with 4.9% apr. but no discount, which translated a £36,500 cash price to £5K deposit and £490 x 48 with a £12,600 residual (12k miles)

I'd prefer a shorter term of 24 or 36

You guys pointed my daughter to an SLK AMG for £239 x 24 + 6 so I'm hoping you can help me out here

Due to the excellent reviews on the M135i, I can't see any mega deals anytime soon. I recently approached Sytner on a used one they had and they wanted new money for it, with new car payments.

I think this is going to prove to be a very popular car!

Bang for £ it's great value. You can spend £30k on a Golf R and still only have 270 BHP. I say "only" as if 270 BHP isn't enough

Two of my local dealers have pre reg ones at a discount therefore something must be able to be done, they wouldn't pre register a high demand car that they thought they could sell easily for full wack.

Maybe I should have pointed out I was looking at three door models, which I can't find any of on the BMW site. five doors there is a few of.

Two 3 door pre-reg cars in one local dealer, black from memory but would need to check.

I've just done it and the car is a monster. Absolutely brill and that's compared with a 330d which is also brill.

Got 6% on mine but it was the first they'd done and I ordered pre the Harris video which seemed to kick off a lot of interest so maybe they've been keeping their margins since. Dunno.

Pre-reg one I saw isn't black, its a 3 door Estoril with black leather. No pics as yet but must look ok if you squint at the front!
