Do you guys know if accessories such as the M-aero kit can be residualized when leasing a 535? According to my CA it cannot and has to be paid in full but I was wondering what other people's experiences have been.

Some center installed accessories can be residualized but often at significantly lower residuals than the car or factory installed options. It seems to me that I recall aero kits being among them but it's a distant memory.

In Canada, accessories are not subject to residual but are expensed over the term of the lease.

In my case, this included the iPod adapter which was not a factory install for '07.
