I would have stopped auto pay a month or so before you planned the pull ahead trade. And then you would have had leverage. Unfortunately, given your situation you have no leverage.

There is plenty of F10 inventory around. No shortage. But for May 2012 there were heavy incentives by both MB and BMW. It was a great time to lease a new F10 and new E350. I did both. ;)

My non statistical seat time in both 2012 models tells me that both are very safely designed. Yet the Benz does feel more "tank like" which likely means nothing when crash results are measured.
