Curious to get some opinions here, but if I recall correctly, didn't BMW offer some pretty decent incentives in summer of 03 to clear out the remaining E39s? If so, wouldn't a considerable number of those be 3-year leases? If these assumptions are correct, we should see a decent number of E39s on the market this summer, most of which will still be under factory warranty. Friend purchased a 2003 530i in August of 03 and I was hoping he would keep it until I would be in the market in August 06; unfortunately, he traded for an X5 a couple of months ago, so that put an end to that plan. Now I'm thinking that my next best shot will be this summer... whataya think?
