Does it make more sense leasing the m5?

I only want it for 3 years anyways. I don't mod it etc. However I feel I will get my ass handed to me on depreciation. Atleast I fight the bank and take that hedge.

Got a 50i coming due right about a year after release so it should cool down by then.

Anyone else consider leasing it?

With cars that expensive I don't think it makes financial sense to lease it. Playing with the BMW financial calculator on the old M5, the price differential between a 60 month purchase and a 36 month lease wasn't that much (of course we know that calculator to be super accurate).

If the new M5 actually does come in a stick, it will be the first car I've bought (vs lease) in 5 cars.

Too early to tell. Need to wait for the M5 pricing to be announced and the lease rates (residual and money factor) to be released by BMWFS.

Typically, the rates aren't very good for newly released hot cars. They should come down after the first wave of the "gotta be the first" crowd goes through the system.

Thanks for the input, I was just worried if the value will be killed with gas potentially hitting 5, 6+ in a few years. No one will want one....trying to sell would be a ding, where as the bank sets up the price they think it should be at in a lease.

I guess time will tell.
