Is https://myfs.bmwusa.com/bmw/ a legitimate BMW website?

With the recent Equifax hack, it's not a bad idea to be a little paranoid. I got an email about my upcoming lease end and the website link took me to this site:
https://myfs.bmwusa.com/bmw/

This is not the URL you get when you login into BMWFS through the BMWUSA website. Also it asks for your account number or Social Security number. Is it a legit site?

I am a millennial so I am sufficiently computer literate however I am sure identity thieves have sophisticated methods of masking domain names and such.
