One more lease question

I have two another question for which I think I know the answer but I want to make sure (so I can really trust my calculations):

Can all the fees (Document fee, acquisition fee, Registration Fee and security deposit (if applicable) be payed up front to avoid paying interest on any of these fees? Or are there anything that HAS to be rolled into the lease payments?
I believe I should be able to pay all fees upfront. But I want to be sure.

The lease return disposition fee (unless waived during negotiation - if this even possible?) is due only at the end of the lease correct (and is discounted from the deposit negotiated at the begining)?

Thanks guys. I think I have all my numbers straight:
Looking to order (so I can pick up during anniversary trip) a 328i Mineral Gray Metallic with the following options: ZLP,ZPP (black leather),ZTP. 3AG & 508 (Camera + PDC), 494 (Heated seats) and Alarm (302).
But wondering about dropping the alarm and using that for the HK sound (depends on insurance premium impact).

Ordering a sport line is not in the cards this time... Other than that do you guys think I am missing something else I will regret not getting?

Alex

Correct you can pay them upfront.

Correct due at the end and sometimes waived depending on the situation.

Note- disposition fee CAN NOT be waived based on negotiation upfront. It is only waived at the end if you buy the car or remain loyal to BMWFS.

And insurance discount for alarm is tiny... it's only a discount on the Comp premium which is usually not a lot.

Thanks for that detail SARAFL. That is one less thing to negotiate up front.
