Your glass is half full. You are okay, and you will be car shopping in a month where there are incredible incentives. Nothing else really matters.

Terrible advice, unless you literally have money to burn. Many / most BWM incentives are tied to BMWFS, and you either need to finance or lease to receive them. In some cases, those incentives...

Believe it or not, there is an advantage to a small dead spot. Imagine you are on the autobahn doing 200 kph and sneeze (Gesundheit!) Laser crisp steering could put you into the guardrail.

Would a burned out bulb be too obvious? If the bulb is fine, probably corrosion on the switch.

My understanding is that 2 or 3 years ago, BMWNA squashed this practice. There are now significant financial penalties to the dealership if they sell a lease return to the original lessee or anyone...

First, that's not a $45,000 loss as you claimed.

Second, I cannot imagine spending close to $70,000 on a 4 cylinder BMW. Are you that rare BMW driver who paid MSRP? If so, that is hardly the...

Well good for you. By the way, MSports actually DO have a different suspension than non-MSport vehicles. Yes, the 704 MSport suspension is not as hard core as an M5's. But you are incorrect in...

I've had 3 F3X's, including an F31. NONE of them had a "dead spot" on center. Yes, the steering is not as communicative as it was on the E9X. But there is no dead zone. Alignment or bushings,...

I'm sorry, but I really don't understand this. About 6 weeks before your lease ended, you should have received a lease end return kit in the mail from BMWFS. That kit includes a Ding-o-meter and...

The 2017 has a factory warranty for 4 years or 50,000 miles. I'm guessing your car has 1 year of factory warranty remaining. And some parts will be covered under the factory emissions warranty. ...

The number you want to be looking at isn't the residual, it's the payoff amount. You can find that - to the penny - on the MyBMW website.
