What is a "correct" money factor? Every part of a deal is negotiable. If the overall deal makes sense (aggressive selling price) what's wrong with them making a few $$ in the rate instead of the...

They're not going to keep your MSD for anything they wouldn't otherwise be charging you for... meaning the only benefit they have is that they already have the money, vs having to bill you for it.

You DO NOT lose your entire payment if the car is totaled and you do a one pay lease. This is an incorrect statement.

No they won't... Why would they? What is wholesale value for your car? That's the most they'd give you.... Otherwise they can just buy it from BMW when you return it.
