Thanks for the review eazy! Sounds like BMW's refinement efforts for the B48 engine paid off. In the F30, I remember several Bimmerfest members reporting that the B48 engine in that car was less responsive and sounded worse than the N20 engine.
Isn't the MF always outrageously high during the first 6-12 months or so of a new model release just to gouge the "gotta have it" crowd?BMW can not be arrogant in charging a much higher lease price compared to the competition. BMW should look at 2018 Honda Accord as an example. Honda was charging a high MF to the accord when it came out. In fact it was about $75 more a month to lease an Accord compared to a similarly equipped Camry. Even though the accord was a media darling sales suffered until Honda lowered the MF.
