Question for MINI/BMW Combo Dealers

Hi
Currently on my 2nd BMW Financial Services Lease (2009 7 Series) - I am in Good Standing with BMWFS
About to finance a Mini Countryman -- Does my good track record with BMW Financial Services help in my deal with Mini Financial Services -- (i.e. any prefered rates, finance rate reduction, etc)?
Thanks!

It would if they had any specials, but there are no promos for the Countryman. The only thing you'd get is the typical security deposit waiver if you are leasing the MINI.

Generally speaking, you qualify for BMW/MINI "loyalty" rates if you lease or finance a BMW or MINI through BMWFS.

Right.

Also, if your credit rating has suffered... as long as you have been paying BMW on time they **may** look the other way depending on the severity of your rating's drop.

Along the same line, is the lease end termination fee waived if you go from a BMW lease to a Mini lease through BMWFS?

Yes

As far as BMWFS is concerned, a BMW lease is the same as a MINI lease and vice versa. It's basically like a MINI is a BMW 0-series. You qualify for all of the same benefits-- loyalty rates on either brand, security deposit waiver, disposition fee waiver, etc.
