i was considering leasing one, but it seems paying 54% for 3 years of use (actually more than 54% if you factor in interest, taxes and other fees) is a bit steep, especially to walk away empty handed.

now i'm thinking that it's better to finance cars that depreciate quickly. at least you have the car in the end.

anyone have any thoughts on this?

The new vehicles coming out have the realistic resdual values. All values in the past were subsidized by BMWFS which lost 1 billion dollars by the way.

All models will adjust for 2009. Any low values remaining are to clear out 08's.

BMW will push financing and remove incentives for leasing.
