Since about 1/3 of BMW E46 3-series were leased (I can give you a reference for that if you want it), it kind of calls your blanket statement "few" into question.

Frankly, I simply don't believe that you can prove your assertions. Even anecdotally, look at the number of "newbie, just bought a ..." that are posted in this forum.
Based on the "enthusiasts" in this or other forums along with owners in the Bombe from the last 6 years. I don't care about the majority as you've misinterpreted, they left the E46 and E9x within the first 3 years their lease was up. Plus 1/3 is better than 60% of all E9x owners.
