is the residual price at lease buyout negotiable if leased from bmw? i'm asking because i believe the value of the car has been affected by the recent collision, and i have a letter to that effect from the dealership. thanks

Answered here recently: Not likely. My SA said I would be better off turning in my X and getting a CPO. Part of the reason for the high residuals is to keep a strong secondary market.

BMWFS will not negotiate the residual with the lease holder. It will only negotiate it with a BMW dealer that wishes to purchase the vehicle once you turn it in.
