Not sure where you read that. But those stats are way off. My local dealership had put up stats of the percentages of how many 3's,5's, and 7's were leased and all models were way above the 60% mark, this stat was not created by the dealership this was made by bmw na, and was confirmed by midwest regional district head of sales manger, who's office is based out of minooka illinois.
