I received an email about this from BMWFS and it sounds like this refers only to lease/loan for a new car, but not buying outright, so it's not quite the deal one would hope for since you will incur interest fees and so forth. I wonder if they would penalize you if you took out the loan, got the 5K discount, then paid it off soon thereafter.
