Your best option is to get a quote from Carmax and then go to a BMW dealer(s) and ask them what they will pay for the car. That way you have 2 ( or more ) bids. Then you can decide what to do, pay...

As long as the numbers are the same I would do it. They probably just screwed up and lost it. You could ask them for something for your trouble like a gift card, they aren't getting paid so they're...

If your car had a cap cost over 80k leasing for 10k miles per year and buying miles is usually cheaper than a 12k or 15k lease originally even if you drive those latter amounts. The reason is because...

FWIW I think BMW pissed away billions on a failed i program and neglected their bread and butter cars like the 3 series, now that's coming home to roost. I also think this cost the CEO his job.

Wow, just missed my 2014 by a few months. I did have a leak in the differential and they just replaced the seals. It was a substantial amount of labor. If I had to pay it would have been at least $2k.

IMO it's not worth it. The base radio is HK, The option is an upgrade. I have the Bang & Olufsen which is excellent and might be worth the money. It happened to be on my M5.

It took a while for my son's BMWFS account to get updated when he did a pull ahead. Eventually the final numbers reflected that they paid the last 3 payments. It might have been a month or so.
