Wow, with that high a yearly mileage, a lease would be very expensive but think about the maintenance savings with a lease: no maint ever if you lease every 3 years, probably less tire purchases over the course of 3 years, free loaner/less hassle factors, $500 every 3 years from BMWCCA, a new car every 3 years, probably safer with newer parts & technology, etc.

I am not a salesman
