Sorry, I probably should have mentioned that was aftermarket wheels, as well, with more aggressive offsets than factory. With +45 offset, I would have been able to run 255s with rolled fenders and full negative camber. I also ran 235/35 all around on the stock wheels for winters, and 235/50 rears with 225/50 fronts on the aforementioned aftermarket wheels. The size of the tire is only part of the traction equation, ... Read More
I'm interested in the tire size you used, requiring rolled fenders . . . I've done some performance modifications to my 135i E88 and the 245/18's break loose quite readily with DC transmission in "M1"
That your tires are getting smaller and smaller as your tread wears down. Not really all that much (not like on the Flintstones...), but that's why you rotate your tires to make them wear even (unless you have directional tires).
thank you all. what you mean "the rubber wears down"?
I ran 3 different sizes in my time with my 135. Never an issue (other than having to roll the fenders for the largest, but that's a different problem altogether). I even ran taller tires in the back than the front. As long as both tires on each axle are the same, the sensors don't care. They only look for left and right to be turning at different speeds before things ... Read More
Now that I think about it you're probably right...the rubber wears down after a while anyway (sooner for some...) so it must be able to handle the small variances.
it won't. It will actually compensate slightly for the incorrect speedo reading. Not by much, however.
I'd confirm with the dealer...you wouldn't want to throw off any of the electronic gizmos...ABS, EBD, ESC...etc...
Sorry I cannot help. My 135 is just now approaching the need for tires at 30K. Call Tire Rack. They are very good at telling you what non-standard tires will work.
Nope. No problem.
is there a problem to install tires on the rear 255 x 35 x 18" in place of the original 245 x 35 x 18"? thank you Franco

On last day of April I leased a 128i convertible. MSRP is $41340. Negotiated price down to just over $38k--approximately $750 under invoice plus stupid BMW advertising fees. Put $2900 down plus registration and lease fees. Lease payment w/o tax is $364 per month for 36 month lease with 10k miles per year. Residual is 59%. Money factor was .00120. Was seriously looking at VW GTI, but rear-wheel drive, plus high ... Read More
I am looking at a new 2011 135i coupe lease. It's slim pickings here in Washington. The dealer is quoting $4000 due at signing. $550 a month w/tax, over 36 months with 15,000 miles per. It's equipped with M pack, premium pack, heated seats, satellite radio, 7 speed auto. I have been looking online and I have seen much lower priced deals.

Hi blakers. BMW Financial Services' normal buy rate lease money factor for a 36 month lease of a 2011 128i Coupe is .00135. The buy rate for the 135i Coupe is .00120. Lower this factor by .00030 for loyal customers. I believe that you can lower it by .00007 for every additional security deposit that you make, up to a maximum of seven. That's what the MSD program was like the ... Read More

Any idea on how much I should consider for a discount on a 2010 128i, with MSRP>40,000 (even though, a comparably equipped 2011 would be about 38,000? + taking into account the new changes coming into production now for 2012?)
Mustangs are decently reliable and a good choice, since they are only $20-$25K for a base model. The 2011 model has a fantastic V6 engine as well, but the fact that they made such a change means that the older generation is suddenly very inexpensive.(old V6 was junk, V8 was/is a tank) Good choices, used - get a loan and pay it off in 1-2 years if possible: 2008-9 Mustang V8. ...

Hi Car_Man: Thanks for all of your great advice! I would like your opinion on a 2011 BMW 128i coupe with an MSRP of $32,700 I am thinking of leasing. I have been offered a MF of .00125 and a residual rate of 56% for a 36-month lease with 15,000 miles per year. We've agreed on a purchase price of $30,800, resulting in monthly payments of $455 including taxes and $0 ... Read More
Thanks mcvolvo. I'm glad that you like the forums so much. BMW Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor for the 2011 128i Convertible is actually .00190 for returning customers or new ones who pay a security deposit at lease signing. Make sure that the dealer uses that factor to calculate your car's payment. Now let's take a look at this car's selling price. Including the $1,500 cash incentive, this ... Read More
The wife and I just picked up a 2011 135i. It's our first BMW and we love it. It's a blast to drive. We went to the dealer looking to lease a 3 series but we fell in love with 135i. They had our car sitting on the lot and we got a great lease deal on it. Couldn't be happier. I can't believe more people don't know about this car. ... Read More
I picked up a 2010 factory 135 convertible demo with about 1100 out the door, and i saved the 350 disposal fee on my 2007 x3 and the last month payment of 450 so i looked at the 1100 check i wrote as really about 300 0ut the door. now what did i get, a 48000 msrp car with 13000 mileson it with a cap cost of 37995 with a monthly ...

I know BMW has released its August lease numbers to dealers, but haven't seen them on any message boards yet. I'm probably going to lease a 135i for two years and I'm locked in for the July numbers if I want them, but just trying to figure out if the August numbers are any better. And I'm not sure I trust the quotes from my sales person. Anyone have August 2010 ... Read More
Anybody know the "July 2010" lease rates for 2011 BMW 128 coupe for 3 10K/y years? I mean MF and residuals... Additionally, I received this e-mail from the dealer stating they are under invoice pricing right now, saying: "As for invoice pricing, I am telling you the truth when I say that $33,614 is $1 below invoice on this car. All of the BMW dealers in northeast Ohio share a advertising ... Read More
Hi lionmilk. The selling price that you were quoted for this car looks attractive to me. The dealer invoice of the car that you described is $33,185. That puts the $33,615 selling price that you were quoted at $430 over invoice. The money factor hat you mentioned, .00200 is right in line with BMW Financial Services' buy rate for this model. This is the lowest possible money factor that BMW dealers ... Read More
Just make sure that the dealer is using BMW Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor to calculate your payment and you're in business. Maybe you or someone else could point to a BMW dealer that lets you have the buy rate, does not mark up the acquisition fee, and has a reasonable doc fee? I have leased BMWs before, but this time every dealer I talk with is doing about ... Read More
They key point is this is a 2010 and not a 2011 (which are available everywhere now). They have 0.9% for 72 on the left over convertibles plus $1,500 in dealer money as well. If you can find a left over coupe, I think you can do 0.9% for up to 60 and the dealer gets $1,500 as well. For 2011, the rates are 1.9% for 60 and no dealer money. ... Read More
No problem Miami. The car that you are interested in probably has a spread of around $2,400 between its full MSRP and its dealer invoice price. The $1,500 dealer discount that you were quoted isn't bad. That probably puts you at around $1,000 over invoice. If you shop around or haggle some more with this dealer, you might be able to shave another couple hundred dollars off of this deal, but ... Read More
Welcome eMiami. I'm glad that you've heard good things about this forum. Here's the information that you're looking for. BMW Financial Services' July buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2011 128i Coupe with 10,000 miles per year are .00180 and 61%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top credit tiers. Car_man Host Prices Paid: Buying & Leasing Experiences Forum
The 128 coupe MF is 0.00180 (convertible is 0.00210) - this is for top tier and is the buy rate. BMW dealers almost always mark the rate up for extra profit. They usually mark up the acquisition fee as well. The residual is set by BMWFS and can't be changed by the dealer, so whatever they use has to be the right number or the lease will not fund. Looks like ... Read More
I would love some feedback on the following lease: 2011 BMW 135i White w/ Black Leather DCT Convienence Package Cold Weather Premium Package Sport Package Satellite Radio HK Sound Selling Price: $42,200 Lease Factor: .00185 12k miles $2k down 24-month lease: $577 (including tax) 36-month lease: $645 (including tax) Please let me know, thanks in advance!
The 2011 128i convertible money factor is .00210, which is 5.04% effective and you have to pay the BMW lease acquisition fee. If you buy, BMW will finance it for 0.9 to 1.9% - at least for the 2011 model, they don't show the cheap money for the 2010 left overs (but Edmunds does). The 2010 should also have $1,500 in dealer money to further reduce the price. The 2011 has ... Read More
Hello, I'd like to invest in a 128i convertable 2010 or 2011, but want to lease with option to buy at the end of the term. Or should I just finance? If I lease, payment will be lower, and I can buy the car at residual value? I don't know which route to go? Advise me on some options please, Thank U
I lease a BMW for performance and the simple fact that cars keep improving each year has led me to seek those improvements more often than owning for extensive periods. I guess it all depends on what you consider to be an "improvement". While there are a few things I like about the current non ///M cars-Comfort Access for example-there are many more things that I don't care for, such as ... Read More
