Very odd indeed, yet believable. Why wouldn't BMW want the car early so that they could sell it for more now than later? On the other hand, as the lessee I wouldn't want to return the car early...

Great points, Ninong.

Ultimately though, if one is looking to strictly lease the car for that given period of time (and not buying it at the end, or getting out early, etc), then the lower monthly...

I guess the smog/inspection test will depend on your state. Here in CA, I believe that they still put those hoses/sensors on the exhaust pipes to test out the exhaust gases, so if your car still has...

The JB4 will help clear the check engine light caused by the catless down pipe. However, this still won't help when you actually go for smog/emissions test. Only way the car will pass smog test is...

Same price for all 3? I'd go:

1) 2010 135i with 35K miles
2) 2011 128i loaded with 20K miles
3) 2008 128i with 49K miles

In your case, since you don't care about the additional power, get...

Just wondering what you mean by "isn't stiff enough". Personally, I find Sport/Sport+ bouncy, but this is because the suspension is stiff (i.e., car goes up/down with every road imperfection). If...

Great find. Forget about shifting as fast as the AT. The simple fact that this reduces clutch travel tremendously and vastly improves the shifting feel and experience is well worth it. (It's such...

Congrats! Car looks great! You probably haven't gotten a chance to push it yet, but so far, how does it compare to your other cars, namely the 135i, M6 conv, mini cooperS, etc?

This is very interesting and surprising indeed. Given the BMW provides 4-year free maintenance (and the obvious bumper-2-bumper warranty), the average 5th-year cost must be extremely high for it to...

For those that got it from oem-thing, how much was the total, including customs tax? Customs tax isn't listed, so just wanted to make sure it isn't a large surprise amount.

BMWFS will have a "pay-off" amount for your X5 which will typically have the MSDs subtracted to this amount. Therefore, when you sell your car, you and/or CarMAX would need to pay BMWFS this payoff...
