Did BMW change the lease acquisition fee?

I am looking on the BMW website, and in the lease examples they show, the lease fee is $825.

When I got my car a few weeks ago, it was $725 and the dealers were allowed to mark it up to $925.

Did BMW change the wholesale price, or did they just change the info on the website to give BMW dealers more breathing room?

I saw that the Destination and Handling fee just went up to $925 from $895.

They might be throwing the dealer a bone and putting in $100 markup on the fee when they run the specials.

Remember that the specials are not run at MSRP and do require dealer discount, so essentially they are taking an extra $100 off the selling price and throwing it into the acquisition fee so that the F&I manager can get a few bucks on the deal too.
