I have thought about leasing in the past. But, it seemed like everytime I do the calculations, it didn't make sense for me to lease.

It always seemed like after 3 years of ownership, the depreciation on the car was less than what you paid during the three year lease; i.e., you would probably lose less in depreciation versus what you "lost" in monthly payments...especially b/c BMWs tend to keep their resale value relatively high compared to other makes.

Not am not in anyways an "expert" in this area, but just my observations.
