End of Lease Buyout Strategies?

I'm near the end of my lease on my '03 325i. I've heard---although I can't remember where--that the dealership is usually willing to negotiate a buyout price well below the residual. Does anyone have...

Changes to E90 for March Production?

BMW often introduces minor changes to models in the spring. Does anyone know whether this has been the case with the E90?

Thanks,

Mike

European Maps for Garmin StreetPilot i2?

I'll be spending a good part of the summer in Germany and Italy. I own a Garmin i2, which I love. But the European maps, ridiculously enough, cost more than the unit itself. Does anyone have a...

Funny how fast things get personal on the web! No need to be insulting, really.

Um, there is a significant difference between a rental property and a lease with an option to buy.

Right. I won't have to pay anything. But my point is that I also won't have a thing to show for 2 1/2 years of payments. Fine for leasers, less fine for eventual buyers.

Disadvantage of a Lease

Here's something I never considered when I leased my car.

M Sport Package

Just saw a 330i with the M Sport Package in the BMW showroom in Berlin--stunning. Does anyone know when this will be ready for the US?

I also saw the M 6, which is a seriously beatiful car.

Getting Firmware

I've written to Tom and to Dension, but can anyone else tell me how to get the firmware update that enables text? The Dension site is a deadend.

Thanks!

BMW Olympic Ad: is that the new E90 or a 5 series?

Anyone see the new ad (reliability; BMW comes to aid of tow truck)? I just saw it out of the corner of my eye, but the car was definitely a Bangle, and it looked small for a 5er.
