Option 2 will probably not work for most of us who are wait-listed with a particular dealer and have ordered per our specs.....so option 1 is probably way to go....
I heard that leasing a car and returning to BMW is a pain in the butt ie. dealer looks for all the scratches to take deductions ...but returning to a bank the process is less hassle free as long as car is in pretty good condition but not immaculate ....true of false?
All depends on your dealer. My father has leased all of his cars from BMW and his last one was involved in a major accident, they did not ask him for any additional money. They actually did the inspection in less then 10 minutes, also helps he was picking up a new one at the same time.
