Nothing personal, there's just no emoji for "I'm With Greg". And I realize we're on the other end of the spectrum. For about 5 leases in a row, I'd get all OCD if the dealer's number...

WOW.

First of all, YOU should be running your own calculations for payment. You can find the buy rate MF, and the residual. You need to get your own lease calculator and run the numbers; if you...

Most incentives (Loyalty, Conquest, OL Coupon for Chinese New Year, etc.) are provided by BMW Financial Services. If you don't buy or lease through BMWFS, you don't get the incentive.

It really comes down to (1.) How's the cash flow; and (2.) Do you still like cars?

As I see more photos of the car, I find one thing off-putting: It looks like the rear wheels are smaller than the fronts: like BMW put 18's on the front axle, and 17's on the rear. I'm sure it's an...
