CPO is essentially a warranty that BMW (and others) will sell you on a used car, only they don't give you the option to buy the warranty; they just call the car "CPO" and raise the price. It's a...

Probably. Nothing to do with gap insurance though - and it is a risk, but not one unique to leasing, as people assert.

This is incomplete advice at best, probably wrong. Really, capital cost reductions and security deposits are two totally different things, and one isn't much of a substitution for the other.

To be fair, that is a really unflattering picture of the GS' interior.

The RFTs that came on my F10 are much, much better. ...

Actually I think that is a good suggestion. We have an XC70 and love it. The turbo thing in Colorado is real, too.

I live at altitude, and here my stock 2013 535 is noticeably faster than my naturally aspirated 2005 545 was. But, the 535's average mileage seems to be 2 or 3 mpg lower.

I left in the default $2500 down payment, plus below this you mention DHP, which you didn't list in your OP. Those two may account for the difference.

It seems like the only people who have anything bad to say about the N20 engine are the people who have never driven an N20 car.
