Leasing is only good if your car has poor resale value (e.g., Hyundai, Kia...etc). It does not make financial sense if one has to make car payments for the rest of their lives. Furthermore, you can't really call yourself "owning" a BMW since it's not really your car in the first place. But again, leasing works for an elite group of individuals.
Then how come a comparable Audi or Mercedes is in the same price range yet doesn't have the BMW warranty? Your statement only makes sense if the BMW is more expensive than its direct competition.
