One reason I decided to lease after owning an E46 330i Sport is because it was costing me $1000-1500 for whatever went wrong with it. It's left me stranded in VT and on the highway in NY. I ended up leaving BMW for Lexus for many reasons and now I'm back with the 335ix Sport through a lease. I've never owned a car for more than 3 years other than the E46 and now I also want to avoid the hassles of fixing a bmw after the warranty runs. Lease makes the most sense for me.
