, Senior Pricing Analyst - June 20, 2018

APR Credits continue in June on most BMW models. The bonus is worth up to $3,000 and is yours when taking out a loan through BMW Financial. Having said that, rates are up yet again to 4.09% APR for 60 months.

Leases start at $329/month for the 3-Series and $319/month for the X1. The X1 sounds cheaper, but only because its lease assumes you'll be eligible for a $1,000 lease loyalty discount or conquest bonus for coming from a competitor.

If you aren't eligible, your pricing will be higher. Models eligible for both discounts include the X1 and X2. The X3 and X4 each get the conquest bonus but aren't eligible for the loyalty incentive.

Offers from BMW vary by region and expire July 4, 2018. Examples listed here are based on a California location. We're seeing indications that better offers may emerge June 18, so stay tuned for updates.

Tips on BMW Financing, Lease Specials and Rebate Offers

Although BMW has a reputation for being an excellent brand to lease, that's not always the case. In fact, the automaker has routinely toyed with vehicle configurations, sometimes adding and removing features without warning. We've even seen up to $6,000 in equipment taken out of featured offers with no subsequent improvement in lease price.

Some of the best deals on BMWs are at the end of the calendar year to coincide with the holidays. However, be on the lookout for great discounts right before a new model is introduced. Dealers tend to begin taking orders three to four months before vehicles arrive, so don't be afraid to ask about placing a special order.

Current BMW lessees should be aware that the automaker often features payment waivers to help get you out of your older vehicle sooner than normal. Don't expect to see cashback incentives, however— BMW has unfortunately moved away from this tactic over the past year or so.

Recent college grads may qualify for the BMW College Graduate Program. It's worth an extra $1,000 off most models, although it comes with a requirement that you finance or lease your vehicle through BMW Financial.
