Probably best to go to a BMW forum like bimmerfest, etc. Also BMW's own website will show any national/regional offers

OP, have you considered 3 series GT? it has just as much space as the X3, but maintain that BMW driving dynamics as a regular 3 series sedan, worth taking a look imo.

He's not going to get an X3 for that money. X1...

Yep, can't get X3 for that at all. It's base X1 lease number. I'm paying for than that for my mild optioned X1.

I spent 5 hours last night helping a friend to lease a MB GLA250. I cant say its a grat looking car nor that we got a great deal, but it was the best deal I could get out of all MB dealerships that we have here, considering GLA250 is a brand new car, and has been on the market only a month or so.

Here is the deal we got: MSRP $37,100
Sell Price :$33,300 (pretty much Invoice price)
Residual 66%
MF .0015 ( we could only get .00205, they wouldn't budge for the ,0015
$1,000 down
Acquisition fee $795, they charged us $1050 (also wouldn't budge any lower)
$595 Buy back fee (if he don't buy another MB )
Tax $545 only
Payment $405
and Free window tint upon receiving a 100% survey

Really! If I wasn't completely satisfied with them, I'd pay for the tint myself and include the extortion offer on the survey. I'm sure that MB (and others) know this goes on, but still...

Did I read this right, that there is a $595 fee for turning in the car at the end of the lease if you don't buy it, or another MB? If so, additional extortion. I have not leased a vehicle in several years, but this is the first I have seen of this. Is it standard these days?

Pretty common/standard - $595 seems a bit high, but that's just MB. I think BMW is $350
