As stated before it is doable. I purchased in GA, registered in OH . My dealer was not only able to provide me with temp plates but also took care of my OH registration. All I did was wait for the plates in the mail.
Actually, I wanted to just get temp plates then do the registration in OH myself thinking it would have been faster, but dealer stated that BMWFS was now forcing them to do the registration themselves on cars being leased.
