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.
You can get the extended warranty and the extended maintenance plan. That way, the only thing you pay for is tires and gas. It makes owning the car to 100,000 miles pretty painless. The problem is that I'll probably get to that number in 5 years.
