Well, the final payment will depend on the negotiated price of the two cars. If you had a $43K 325 and a $43K 330, the 330 would be cheaper by $40/mo.
Since a similarly equipped 325 would really be about $38K$39K you may find that the payments are almost the same. I did.

Yes they are. Add 2% for 12K and another 1% for 10K.

Doesnt the difference in lease value depends on how much the vehicles are discounted if both share the same lease terms such as MF, Residual, Etc...?

$392.00 per month doesn't seem like a bad deal to me! With the same amount down as the offer below, how much would the 330i be per month?

first of all If you are going to lease any car (not just a bmw) do not put any money down (capitalization reduction) pay only "drive offs". first months payment, security deposit (if any) and fees. you are "renting" the vehiclethe residual or purchase price at the end of the lease is fixed by the manufacurer (their best guess as to future value) The only way to lower the total amount that you "rent " the vehicle for is to negotiate down the initial selling price (just as in a purchase). By paying $2000 or any amount down is the same as paying additional rent in advance. it's the same as renting an apt and the landlord says he will rent it to you for $1000 a month for a year lease or for $700 a month for the same term if you give him $3600 in advance!

Agreed. Don't put anything down and haggle on MSRP just like you were buying it. The fact that it's a lease doesn't mean you have to pay MSRP. Most people don't understand that.
