But leasing won't get one away from that possibility. Also with the extended warranty, you get the same roadside assistance/trip interruption reimbursement that you do for the new car.

A lease would make sense it the miles are predictable. There are some years where I have put 30K miles on the car in one year. And BMW (unlike any other manufacturer), with their extended maintenance plan, makes it pretty easy to keep the cost of ownership to 100K quite predictable.
