Thanks again Greg! I was at a dealership yesterday shopping for a 2013 550i on the pull-ahead program as my current lease ends in February next year. The finance guy made it seem like they were doing me a favor by buying my current 2010 535i, and factoring it as a trade-in appraisal, rather than have it go back to BMW as a lease-in return because it had some minor cosmetic damage. I knew something was up and walked away especially since he marked up the MF to 0.00165 (went in with the October rates for a 36-month 15k miles lease in mind) and was not really willing to do $500-1000 over invoice. Going to either email him a breakdown of my offer and desired monthly payment or just deal with another dealership altogether.
