90% wont get past the price per month and the fact its a bmw for the price of an infiniti.

most people dont know or care about 4 cylinders vs 6, turbo vs non turbo, they want a nice car with a certain badge on the trunk to park in their driveway.
I suppose there are a certain number of people who are too naiive to look past the $299/mo and see the $3499 initial payment which comes out to $145/mo over 24 months, so the actual cost per month for the car is $299+145.79 or 444.79/mo which means it will cost $10,675 to lease the car for 24 months.

Infiniti could have made the deal appear even more attractive by quoting a monthly lease price of $25.00 (with an initial payment of $10.075.00
