As I understand it dealers are not allowed to manipulate the residual, and the residual on the 28i has been lower than the 35i.
Try to get invoice +500 or better.
Hope this helps.
Thanks Lee et al. I am looking at a few other cars this week and next. I'm glad to hear about the 0.00125. I had seen 0.00135 elsewhere, but it'd be nice to start bargaining even lower! I've seen residuals on the x1 online ranging from 58-61, so I agree that 60 isn't terrible. Thanks again.
