Undermileage Lease

Forgive me if this is in the wrong place or duplicates another thread. I couldn't find one for this however.

I turned in a 6 series 6 months early on a lease in exchange for another BMW on a pull ahead program. I was 20,000 miles below my mileage of 15,000 a year. (What was I thinking of?)

My sales rep told me there was a chance that BMW FS would refund me some money for the lack of use. And gave me a BMW FS number to call.

Before getting laughed off the line, after probably being shuttled to 5 different people at BMW FS for their amusement, I wanted to inquire -- does that happen? Has anyone ever heard of BMW FS compensating people for a lot of unused miles?

I'm going from memory here, but I believe I recently read a post from a dealer that said if you are 20% or more under they will mail you a check for $300.

That's true.. $300 is the max credit, but since they took the lease on a pull-ahead program, you will probably qualify for nothing.

I called and told them I am returning car Friday 5 months early and asked if I would receive a premium from them for turning in car with 21,000 miles instead of the 31,000 allotted for the 31st month on my 36 month lease. She answered without hesitation that I would receive maximum of $300, even using the pull ahead. She seemed informed. We shall see in the end.
