Tips needed! Lease ending, planning to buy...

Hi all... our 4yr lease is up in June on our '13 35i M-sport... car only has 50,000km (30k miles), and has been absolutely problem-free (knock on wood).

We're leaning toward buying it out, but wondering if there are any things we should be doing prior - especially to take advantage of the warranty and included maintenance.

Also any tips on buying after a lease has expired (ie. is negotiation an option?)

do an inspection on it just to be sure nothing needs replacing, then go from there.

See if you can wrangle a CPO on it as part of the buyout deal.
This is the last of the classic modern BMW wagons boys and girls...

Is it CPO? If so and if financing you can get low interest rate from BMW Financial.

I've heard people let the dealer buy the car first on discount price and sell it later to the owner. If your residual is high though probably nobody will bother to give you a deal.

Possibility is you let the car go. It goes to auction and have a dealership to buy it for you for fees. However it's unknown how to track your car all the time through different stages and have guarantees that you'll get the car at the end.

It also won't hurt if you call bmw financial to negotiate.

Cannot fathom why they would not want to do a deal given it's starting to look a touch old and do they really want it sitting on their lot?
