    Just curious - what's the location? It says it's $5000 to ship to me, so it seems it's on an island somewhere...

    IMHO putting down almost $7k is just awful. No one should ever put any money down on a lease. If you drive off the lot and total the car down payment is lost.

    I agree. They have terrible lease deals.

    When I leased my M5, I came to dealership with no checkbook. EVERYTHING was rolled into the lease including TTL. I would not do it any other way.

    Good point. Playing with zip codes online, that car appears to be in Honolulu now.

    This thread is not meant to be a lease vs. buy thread...we have plenty of those already here :) But if someone is in the market and a lease makes sense to *them* for whatever reason and...is based in HI, that's a decent deal.

    As for getting every single fee rolled into your lease...some people are willing to pay for that convenience, but it never comes for free.

    Normally I would agree but don't you get back $7500 in TAX credit?

    Correct, when leasing, the tax credit goes the leasor. To make up this/part of this, I believe the residual value is supposed to be increased by $7,500 thus reducing lease payments...I don't think this is a well documented/regulated/established practice though.
