Just for the hell of it I went to the Honda and BMW web sites and built a fully loaded Accord and a fully loaded 328i.

This is what I found when I went to the "estimate a payment" page after I completed the build.

I don't know if these numbers are representative of what it actually cost to lease these vehicles but it appears that the 328i is a much better value than the Accord if you are leasing. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the BMW will have a much higher residual value.
