Be careful of any lease trader, I talked to Jon Shafer over the phone about the best way to upgrade from what I've got. I mentioned those Lease trader sites, and he said that although you do shift the amount owed to the person, the lease is still on your credit. Im relatively younger and thats a concern for me, for someone more established it might not be an issue. Just a heads-up. So if someone defaults, BMWFS will go after the person who took the lease, but apparently it'll get reported on your credit. Crazy

Best of luck to you LIRacer, not trying to scare you or anything. Seems like those types of cases are rare, and you have less than 2 years left too.
