BMW Financial Services (or any car leasing company) may have promotions from time to time that make a shorter term lease the same as, or less expensive than a longer term lease.

I leased a E60 535xi for a 30 month term that was less expensive than a 36 month term.

I also leased a Mercedes E350 Sport for a 24 month term that was less expensive than a 36 month term.

In both cases, the manufacturer was subsidizing the shorter term lease to make it more attractive so the lease end date was coterminous with the launch of a new / upgraded model.

However, if you are making a financial decision, you need to consider several other factors including sales taxes, property taxes, documentation fee, return fees, etc.

With leasing - knowledge is power.
