It's cheaper to lease a 5 series today than 10 or even 20 years ago. You don't even need to factor for inflation. It's just cheaper, even in constant dollars and even though the price of a 5 has gone up so substantially.

BMW really seems more interested in leasing you a car than selling you a car. It really does seem that way. It's a fascinating dynamic.

Is there anyway to obtain sales vs. lease data for specific models within a brand? I'd be curious to see what percentage of 5 series are leased today and then compare the number to 10 years ago.
The $1,500 Lease/APR Credit and $750 Loyalty Cash are already factored into the $439 lease payment. There is no lowering by $40 due to the $1,500. BTW, the golden rule of leasing is not to put a penny down. Your $399 payment requires an eight grand down payment, which can be a pretty risky move on a lease. BTW, if you put that eight grand down on a Honda Accord, the lease payment is under a hundred bucks.
