If it was that good, why haven't I jumped on it? It seems a cop out for me to recommend something that I didn't take advantage of. Second is the capacity controls on number of leases and just in the West region. And Third, there may be details about lockability of the program etc. The second point is the biggest sticking point for me. A real lease deal of the year should have wide availability. What if sales managers don't want to use their allocations for ED? Only cars in stock? Will want a higher selling price? In those caes, you're back to using the regular program.

Bottom line - if you NEED a 535i in the next 6 months, you should be all over this. Now rather than later. There's no harm in asking.

Can you put some calculations about how you arrived at this payment? I am very curious as I did ED, got a good deal although it was before the 2000 incentive but am not close to $350 range at all.
