As 2017+ lease contracts near maturity dates, I'm reading reports of fantastic offers from BMWFS to lessees. For lessees 90 days out or less from the end of your contract, what kind of buyout incentives is BMWFS throwing at you?
An i3 lessee from Los Angeles reported on the Facebook user group that he received a buyout price of nearly $10,000 below the residual value for his heavily optioned, 2017 BEV. The selling price was a little more than $50K. The contracted residual value was almost $30K, and he's buying it from BMWFS for nearly $20K (Apparently, because his dealership isn't involved in the deal, the car will not have a Certified Pre-Owned warranty). He said he's taking them up on the offer.
The 24-month lease on my heavily option 2018 Sport matures in October, and the buyout price is still showing at the contracted residual price of $34,206 on the BMWFS site.
