We've had this discussion before - go to tire rack - they've got a pretty good tutorial on rotation.

If you are talking about dismounting and remounting, I believe you only need to do that with...

Glad to hear it worked out that way - whatever coverage you had on the IS, get that same stuff on your next car!

They will probably laugh at you but I wouldn't buy at anything less than a 20-25% discount - that car will be 2 model years old in a few months (it's a new unit?)

Sounds like they are leasing you the car with no discount - you should shoot for around 450 a month with absolutely zero drive off. Unfortunately, I don't think NY allows MSDs so you can't use some...

I agree with what you are saying - but look at this 250's msrp - almost as much as yours at $47k and if he doesn't get much discount, who knows?

To the OP - for that kind of money, why aren't you...

Way to stick with it jman - that sounds way better than the other numbers you were getting. And depending on any excess mileage/damage, if any, at the end of the lease, you'll get your 3375 back.

Thanks - wasn't sure because you didn't quote a particular post. I've been following your replies to Jman817 so I kind of figured that might be the case.

Interesting - uclabruins got his money factor to .00006 from .0007 by using 8 MSDs - his deal is over in the leasing price thread - his payment on a 350 is 300 incl tax - again, maybe different...

Whoever told you that about MSDs is either lying or does not know what they are talking about. Each MSD reduces the money factor by .00008 (max of 9 MSDs allowed if permitted in your market - some...

On the surface, it sounds like a pretty good deal. If you could provide the selling price, residual, and money factor, we could tell for sure. Also, annual miles.

Something doesn't sound right - you're doing max MSDs and it only brought the money factor to .00058?

See uclabruins above posts about his deal.

You did well - more than a decent deal - almost 10% off sticker and a great payment with very little up front to drive an almost 50k car for 3 years.

Must be your poker experience helped - haha.

Using 6% for sales tax, I calculate about 445 a month without the tire and wheel package - I'm not a fan of 48 month leases. You probably could have skipped that package and be paying around 475 a...

On the surface, looks like a decent deal - to tell for sure, we would need to know the msrp, selling price, residual, and money factor.

Bingo - there's the difference - that's about $1800 it looks like. Under those circumstances, it might be better just to buy it. Obviously, you won't get that extra tax money back if you don't buy it...
