Literally this took 5 minutes of my time. I pm'ed Golffrr, he had me to email Francesa as he called her and asked her to drop what she was doing. She called me a minute later and I gave her the exact build spec on an X5 for my wife. That took 3 minutes in total.
Francesca called me back quickly after finding the exact car on route here to the U.S. and gave me the base MF/resid and the cap cost price for a lease...which was much less than the cap cost quoted from my local dealer. That took 2 minutes.
I'll likely opt to buy vs lease with the $30K accelerated depreciation deduction available for vehicles with a certain gross vehicle weight.
When the car is ready to be picked up we will do a mini-vacation day trip and take the train from here in South OC up to Camarillo
Thanks Steve Thomas BMW !!!
