I believe there is merit to the scenario I presented, but the breakeven point is at a higher msrp than the 3 series, and prolly even the 5 series, excluding M5.
yes, it does work but mostly at higher MSRP ($80k+ usually)... for a 3er or regular 5er, the math usually works out best to just buy 12k or 15k miles per year on the lease.
Run the scenarios yourself... do a 10k, 12k, 15k scenario and in each "buy" more miles to get to 20k miles. You'll probably find the 15k lease + 5k extra miles scenario is cheapest. Plus, if you buy the extra miles upfront as part of the lease, they are $0.15 vs. $0.16 AND the ones you don't use are refundable. If you buy miles during the lease for $0.16 but don't use some of them after, BMW won't refund for those.
