Indeed I did. At a time when the car was significantly cheaper than it is now. The question is whether I would do it again today. I think a lot of the ED for life guys are going to think twice once...

That's true, but the topic of this thread is whether the financial incentive to do ED is gone. I would say yes for most cars.

The biggest rub for me with BMW's current program is the delay getting the car back. I suppose I would be "ok" with no discount if they didn't have an ED adder, and didn't collect lease payments...

I would bet money that the 5 series residuals get worse or stay the same next month. I don't see them improving. I would buy this month if I were you.
