Is that your way of waying "thank you"?

You do NOT pay a dispo fee if you lease or finance another BMW within 6 months. And yes, by definition they are talking about a DIFFERENT BMW. If you truly paid cash for your 535, you may be SOL. But if you financed, I just saved you $350. You're welcome.
And like brandonw noted, if you didn't pay a security deposit, you were charged a higher MF as a result.
If you ran your tires down so far they would not pass state inspection, how is that the dealer's fault or BMW's? Likewise your conscious decision not to get some touch-up paint.
You are certainly not the only one who has entered into a lease transaction without understanding the contract and reading the fine print. But at the end of the day it's no one's fault but your own. Save the drama for your mama.
