so my local BMW center just said that the MF on all BMW's is .00170 and that they do not offer leases at buy rate. Is this normal operation procedure? that works out to a big bump in the % rate!

How can it be the worst idea financially? I can either buy it out right for 60K or buy it outright at the end of the lease and have the cost still be 60K. Either way, it cost the same.
