A new '09 model specced out like this car would lease for about $1200/mo right now with nothing out of pocket.
If I was in the market for an E90 I would have already submitted the credit app to BMWFS on it. I expect the OP will have a taker in a matter of days, if he doesn't already, and I'll offer my congrats to the new owner.
OP I'm sorry to see you parting with it, hopefully there's something better in the pipeline for you.
Thanks! I got someone lined up to assume the lease pretty quickly. I was actually overwhelmed by the response. I guess I should have asked for $5K down or so. I may have gotten that or something close to it.
