Who out there is going to return their '05/'06 Leased X3 or just keep it? Especially with the newer tranny issues?

I'm going to return my 05 and get an '08.

I'm returning my 06 when my lease is up. Just don't want to own it past the warranty...

Buying our '05 off lease this weekend. An '08 similarly equipped was nearly $100 more to lease than the '05 was. Made the decision very easy.

I am turning in our '05 X3 and leasing a new '08 X3. The '08 has been built to our specs (including steptronic tranny) and is awaiting transport.

You could not go wrong to buy our '05 as a CPO, it has been great. For us, the '08 has enough changes and upgrades from the '05 to motivate us to make the switch.

Still trying to decide whether to buy my 05 or get a new one. Have a manual and will get another so transmission issues not a problem. Just had some work done today on the car though for a total of $2100, so I am really glad to be in warranty (pretty hard to beat). If I do decide to buy it, I am going to buy the extended warranty.
