I am looking to possibly do my first lease on a car; I am a senior citizen, and have purchased new for all of my purchases since I got a used lemon 67 cougar many moons ago. I have a few questions, to say the least. First, can you deal with a leased car the way you can a new one? The car I am thinking about is currently in stock. Second, how is a trade in handled? I assume that I can apply the trade in to what I want to put Down on the lease, will they cut me a check for the difference? Or am I better off to sell it myself, or to Carmax? Finally, in looking at the BMW web site, they quote a price for a 'nicely equipped' car (328i convertible, with the premium package and a couple of other add ins such as heated seats) at 399 plus 4k down. The car I am looking at adds Navigation, keyless entry, and cold weather package, and I have been quoted 529 with 4k down. Since with a lease, I have been told you are financing the depreciation, is this a reasonable price? It seems in my search of used cars that cars with nav still run about 2k more. Lots of questions, I know. Thanks in advance to anyone who can be of assistance.
