Not true regarding the MSD's. Gap insurance would cover any difference. This was the reason for not putting money down towards cap reduction.
For the MSD's, if at lease end there were issues associated to damage above and beyond the allowed, replacement of tires, etc., this would be taken from the security deposits. Else BMW FS would send you a bill.
The rough math would work result in a $50 per month savings assuming max MSD's. Another way of looking at it, for $5600 that BMW FS will have for 36 months, you'll save $1800. Perhaps that money can be best used elsewhere but it is a good option.
