OP - where do you live? lots of city driving on your daily commute? With gas prices the way they are today, the recovery period to make up the extra cost of the AH may not be worth it.

The OPs title is misleading - no where does the ad say its a lease. I would assume the numbers are presented are for a purchase with 60 months financing. At $41k it still sounds like a terrible deal.

What is the insurance company paying for a rental car? $30/day? Figure about $200 compared to 2 hours body shop labor - they'll likely argue the cheaper route.

Congrats on the new car. The F10 is a great middle road for good handling and interior quality. I think the idea BMW would have the handling of the 2, the looks of the 4, and the luxury feel of the 5.

+1

And if you bought it with a 30 year when interest rates were low, you can transfer it at a premium when interest rates and housing values go up should you decide to sell. Win-win

We use chase sapphire preferred which is something like $90 per year. As we tend to travel and dine out alot, its a pretty good fit for us. The metal inlay gives it a nice weight too.
