This thread is getting WAAAAAAY OFF TOPIC!
Would you agree with me on the premise that if I do not wish to own my 2011 or 2012 535i xDrive beyond 3-4 years, and if purchased I would likely sell within 6 years, a lease would be more appropriate than paying cash upfront so far as money saved vs money lost in depreciation? I guess I'm looking for a more direct answer than 'it's personal preference'.
One issue I'm currently getting burned on is the amount of repairs necessary to keep my '04 325i in good condition. **** breaks. Often. I am not a heavy footed driver and as far as I can tell I treat the car very well. There are just so many mechanical issues. I do NOT want to own a BMW beyond warranty at this point.
- Planned: 2012 Space Gray 535i xDrive ///M Sport.
