While reading another thread, I started thinking about residual value v. realistic value. I have a 2015 328 x-drive base model, leased for 36 months with 20k miles/year. On my lease document, the agreed residual is approximately $23k. I highly doubt a low optioned 3 year old 328 xdrive with 60k miles will be worth anywhere near 23k. ASSUMING the car has been trouble free and I want to finance a purchase of it, can I get the car for its real world realistic rate and save a significant amount of $$$? Basically turn the car back, let BMW CPO the car, and then magically buy it back from BMW/dealer before it even hits the used car lot?
