**What is your lease payment for the F15??**

I figure its a good idea to start a thread showing what people are paying to lease a F15. From what I've seen these are quite expensive to lease since they sell so well and in high demand. Curious...

I think it has a lot of to do with the type of driving you do. Mine is weekend only, lots of short distance stop and go driving which makes it worse.

My guess the dealer didn't add the oil or didn't add enough. Every BMW i've own all burned some oil especially the turbo models. On my 2014 550 i've added 3 quarts of oil already with only 7-8k...

The car looks lowered and has some type of exhaust on it so I would guess its tuned. Piggback tunes and even BMW's own press tune still has the speed limiter in place.

I am sitting tight myself until next summer. Hopefully the rates will be better. There is no way i'm paying over 1K for a X5 35 when i could get an M5 for that kind of money.
