Best Way to Lease Transfer?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey everyone, I am looking forward to getting back into the M3 world. In the meantime, I am trying to figure out how to get out of my lease. It is a 4 month old 2015 Cadillac ATS 2.0T with the performance package...
This is my first (and probably last) time I have leased a car, and the trade in value is significantly lower than the buyout right now. Anyone have any thoughts on best way to get the lease transferred? I have heard about leasetraders, swapalease, etc...but not sure of the best option.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

I got rid of my f80 through swap a lease but keep in mind you have to have a car that's somewhat in demand and depending on the deal you got, you often have to give decent incentive otherwise someone would lease directly from dealer for a lease with 2 plus years remaing. A lot of people are seeking short term 1 year type leases so if you have a 2 plus year lease the demand for that is much lower as they can essentially get it new for a similar price

Thanks, my plan is to offer $2-$3k to make the deal attractive. I will try swap a lease!!

Ya swapalease is great. I swapped my previous BMW that way and it was without any issues.

However first you need to ask Cadillac about its lease transfer policy. BMWs are very easy to transfer, with a 500 transfer fee, and all liability goes to the new lessee. However some brands, like Porsche, makes lease transfer basically impossible. You first must make sure your leasing company (assuming GM finance arm) actually allows lease transfers. You need to make sure liability transfers to the new lessee, instead of staying with you.

Don't give up on leases; it's generally almost always better to lease BMWs rather than buy, maybe with M3 being a rare exception, depending on available deals.

Also it may be hard to transfer a 4 month old car unless you got an amazing deal...

Thank you very much, I will check with GM finance...another thing I just assumed was the same for each car manufacturer. Appreciate the insight!
