Lease, buy, whatever. The key is to enjoy the ride already!

Not many cars make you smile like a BMW. That's what you're paying for.

Now what's that worth to you?

I'd rather finance.

When I bought my last car (2009 135i vert) the lease terms were unattractive so even though I like to lease I ended up just paying cash (always cheaper than financing).

If you actually do this, you may be able to get the car for less than the residual. I've read posts that sometimes BMWFS will offer to sell you the car for less than the residual.

Also ask your dealer for the CPO price.
I'm thinking about the pros and cons as I have leased my last four cars. One advantage of a purchase is you can get a good discount up front but a payoff is based on the starting point of the msrp even if your lease is based on a reduction of the msrp
