I'm uncomfortable owning a car, there are too many bad things that can happen. BMWFS often offers incentives to lease that are not available if you buy. Because BMWFS lets you buy miles for $.16 (...

Should be much more although I'm not familiar with SUVs. I did get huge discounts on new 2014 328i and M5.

The money factor is not from BMWFS unless you have bad credit. I got .0013 and the max they can charge is .0017. Maybe they are using a bank or leasing company. I also got 59% residual, mine is a new...

I'm in the same boat. I got a new 2014 M5 Dec 8. Had a 2013 650i coupe and then a 911 for a while. Is yours a 2014 or 15 ? You don't need the dealer to set up the M configs, you can do it yourself. I...

I agree with Alpine. High mileage drivers do great with a 3 year 15k leases and just buy the additional miles and don't buy an extended warranty. My son does that, he will have 65k miles on his X3...

BMW is pushing these 39 month leases so the cars come back in the spring but that's bad for you, you want your lease to expire in December so you'll have a crack at another great deal.

The residual on a 2014 M5 is 57% for 15k 36 months. I know this because I just leased a 2014 and got 60% for 10k 36 months. So at 54% the 2015 is 3% worse ! If you can find a 2014 to your liking that...

The real deal is on a 2014 M5 if you can find one to lease because the residual is 3% higher on a 2014 than a 2015 ! Believe it or not. It's true. I got a blowout deal on my 2014 M5 earlier this...

The wheels come with the comp package. There are 3 choices, 601M, 343M, and 343M black. The $1300 is an option for people who don't order the comp package.

Yes 2014. As I said the drive off would have normally been $1088.81 but they only charged me $375. I did no negotiating whatsoever but I do have a great relationship with the dealership.
