I signed my lease a week ago, on a deal initiated. MF was 111, but FM told me the MF had gone up since may and if I started a deal now it would be higher.

I curbed one of my wheels the last day of ED. They noted it at drop off and it was fixed when I got it back in the states.

Seems more likely that the DMV just randomly assigned that combination to somebody.

I did the same thing with my ED car in 2012. I left the ED plate on the front and haven't had a problem since.

When I looked into this the last time I did ED my memory is that the insurance did cover it because it's a public road. Definitely worth knowing one way or the other.

Shuttle Service Reimbursement

Sorry if this is duplicate information, but I just got ED paperwork and it looks like you can book the log in/log out shuttle and get reimbursed by bmw for the cost.

There's really no such thing as a "wholesale price" for new BMWs. Invoice is the closest you'll get to such a number.

If that's 7 percent of US MSRP you got a terrible deal. If that's 7 percent of ED MSRP then that's pretty good.

I think you can go to the drop off point in advance and sign paperwork. If the logistics work you could go with her before she leaves and get everything signed.
