A lease pull ahead is not an option that the lessee can just choose to do. It's a manufacturer promotion and isn't always available. Dealers can't offer a pull ahead or buy out your lease without...

Next we'll hear, the car was 'inspected' by a state employee so the title is now rebuilt instead of salvage. These state employees are highly trained!

Thanks guys. Yeah, it has high mileage. I'm trying to find the right balance between too many miles and too few. Too few miles means I'm paying more money more. I know 50,000 miles in the used...

That's a good way to test the difference and how it feels to you. It's all preference. Tires will make the biggest difference in getting you around a corner faster! Remember, slow in fast out!

7% off MSRP has been a typical transaction for BMW. However, 2017's are still new and 2016's exist. Once the 2016's are gone, the 2017's will become run of the mill. Give it a month or two...

Terrible deal.

In very high level general terms, paying 1% per month of MSRP is pretty square. Dealers will accept that deal all day long.

It's average for a lease. Leases on the 2017 340xi are not very good. That deal is a 7.7 when I plug it into Lease Hackr ($600/month excluding tax and fees). A 10 is a good deal, anything over 10...

If you threw in an incentive it might help. Why would anyone take over a 26 month lease, when they could just get a new car lease for the same amount?
