It's no different than trading in a car with a loan. The lease will have a daily payoff amount that you can get with a phone call. The dealer you are trading to will offer a trade-in price that...

Total diameter is the same (or very, very close) no matter the wheel size (assuming you are talking about OEM options). The bigger the wheel, the lower the profile of the tire.

1000% NO. Anyone who knows BMWs will just point and laugh at you, and those who don't know BMWs don't understand the significance of the M badge anyway.

How could a one-month-old X6 35i possibly depreciate $30k?!?!?

You can't even buy a high-mileage 2008 for $30k less than the original MSRP.

I have an '11 X6 35i and my better half drives an '11 RRS HSE LUX so I can probably give a pretty good comparo of the two.

Try to find a used 2008 X6 for 60% of the original MSRP on cars.com. Not gonna happen. That's my point. The true resale value far exceeds logic. Based on the 36 month 60% residual, you would...

X6's hold their value freakishly well. It's very odd to me as it's relatively easy to buy one new for $500 or less over invoice. Usually cars that hold their value so well also sell for MSRP or...

I have the 20" pirelli snow's mounted on the stock 20" rims and have been amazed at how well it handles the snow. And we've had a lot of it....160" so far this season in Syracuse.

It can be a good deal when interest rates are low and the projected residuals are high. Right now, the 1.9% BMW 60 month APR is about half the effective lease interest rate on most cars.
