I have tier 1 credit & I don't lease vehicle. Base on my current situation, how is it possible for me to drive 335d fo 20 months without milage restriction, without worry about lease return conditions and only pay total out-of-pocket $7,300.xx ?

In layman's terms, my monthly cost = $7,300 / 20 months = $365.00 / month

p/s In addition, I also claim the $900 Federal Tax Credit for FY 2010.

The person who leased could have done the same or better. My brother got back $10k on his 911 about 4 years ago even though he leased and it all depends on the desirability of the car. You could never do that with a 750i or or 750IAH. I am also certain that you car was a low mileage car, which means that you did not use it much.
