Question on Returning Leased M3

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Sorry guys, it's my first ever leased car. Newbie on leasing rules. Can I return the car with the OEM black 359 wheels instead of the original silver when I first got it? Car got into an accident 2 years ago, they had to change 2 wheels and I was given an option by the certified BMW collision shop if I wanted replace all 4 with GTS black wheels. Of course went for it. Now confused if I can return the car with the black wheels or purchase a new set of silver ones.

No. The car has to be returned with all original equipment.

Yep, you need to return it with as it was delivered to you.

I don't know if things are the same now but a long time ago, I turned in a GTi and they tried to charge me for tires because the ones I just put on weren't OEM. Thankfully the tire shop allowed me to exchange them and pay the difference

What was the car delivered w/, silver 359's? I tend to agree, needs to be as the car was delivered but worth a call into the dealer. Given that the black wheels are OEM 359's the dealer MIGHT accept the car that way. All they can do is say no and you make the swap.

My first e92 M3 had powder coated black wheels on them, I returned it with no issues. The dealer in fact thought it was cool

Good info, thanks so much guys!

Yes it was originally silver straight from the Welt. I had the ED. Then the replaced with black after the accident.

I might take your offer on swap if the dealer won't take it =)

It depends on the dealer. Mine let me return my car with the rims painted black and a front lip on it but he said my LED angel eyes had to be removed. Why not just ask your dealer before the lease end date arrives?

Yea, I'm willing to bet it will depend on the dealer. I would just ask the dealer.
