2019 3-Series is in stock; 2020s arriving:
Dealers are currently stocking the 2019 wagon, GT, and sedan models. You can order the M340i, an early-release 2020 performance model. As for the rest of the 2020s, they're now appearing on dealer lots.
Going forward, expect inventories to be generally weighted toward the sedans. The entry-level 320i models and Gran Turismo styles may be harder to locate. All-wheel-drive availability often varies by region.
Those looking for the latest and the greatest should be aware that the 2019 3-Series is a full redesign. Confusingly, the 2019 wagon and GT continue in their old forms. However, there is a reason for this: both models won't see the 2020 model year.
The current offers are in place through December 2, 2019. We may see a change ahead of Thanksgiving and Black Friday, so please check back.
The examples listed here are based on the western states, including California.
A bonus for the taking:
This month, BMW has a $2,500 APR credit in place on the 2019 3-Series sedan. If you're shopping for a 2020 model, you also find a $2,500 APR Credit.
Also available is a recent college graduate bonus worth $1,000 for eligible shoppers. One of the stipulations for these bonuses, however, is that you will have to finance or lease through BMW Financial.
Finance your BMW:
You can finance your 2019 or 2020 3 Series for 3.35-percent APR for up to 60 months. You can combine promotional financing with the offers listed above.
The rates hold steady for another month, as expected. BMW's financing is within the range of what other luxury marques charge.
Lease from $399 per month:
Leases on the 2019 3-Series sedan are in place and may include the $1,000 conquest/loyalty discount, which is reflected in the cost. Here, BMW charges $399 for 36 months with $4,314 due at signing. Your effective cost is $519 per month. To take advantage of this offer, you'll have to come from another BMW lease or that of a competitor. If you aren't eligible, expect to make up the difference in the amount due at signing.
Select either the 2019 3-Series xDrive Wagon or the Gran Turismo and you'll pay $459 for 36 months with $4,384 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost is $581 and that's very high for these models. In these two examples, BMW isn't including the same $1,000 bonus you'll find on the sedan.
A lease offer on the 2020 330i Sedan (includes $1,000 Conquest/Loyalty) is in place. Here, you'll pay $419 per month for 36 months with $4,344 due at signing. Your effective monthly cost is $540, which isn't a good deal. To qualify for this one, you'll have to come from another BMW lease or that of a competitor. If you aren't eligible, you'll need to make up the difference in the amount due.
BMW’s lease deals include 10,000 miles per year of driving allowance. At lease end, you will pay a $350 disposition fee.
