European Delivery and Leasing
It is critical the the residual value be based upon US MSRP. Some dealers will write the lease with the residual value based upon Euro Delivery MSRP instead US MSRP. On a 5er the difference is an extra $2,000 profit for the dealership.
04 Successfully lobbied BMW NA and BMW FS to prohibit dealers from using residual values based upon Euro Delivery MSRP and to use US MSRP saving BMW Enthusiasts several thousand dollars on each lease
