2015 Lease Pull-Ahead Programs

My 36-month lease will be ending in August 2015...anyone know what to expect from BMW NA Lease Pull-Ahead programs in 2015...are they always 6 months out, or do they sometimes extend further?

They will almost certainly have one and they are nearly always six months out. August is the ideal maturation month because the first half of the year is what BMW considers their slow season thus the reason for trying to get you in a new lease early. What I like to do is start the conversation in May and ultimately take delivery in July/August so I am always able to utilize the pull ahead.

Obviously things can change, but I have always had August/September leases and utilized pull ahead on my next vehicle. I'm typically only getting two payments waived by the time I custom order and take delivery, but you can't beat it.

Thanks for the info - so if I'm understanding what you're saying correctly is that July/August would be applicable for the pull-ahead in June? I would love if I could do the pull-ahead in January, but that's probably too many months ahead for BMW NA.

The program is going to be for six months prior to your lease maturation. If that's August for you, then you're looking at February. If you did a new build, you could likely order at the end of December and get all the end of year/holiday discounts and then take delivery 6 to 8 weeks later in February.

The example I was using was more along the lines of keeping a lease that would typically allow for the pull ahead. BMW does not always allow pull ahead for cars that mature later in the year because that is the optimal sales season for them already. Again, the pull ahead program is designed to get the customer in a new car early, but is mainly for BMW to get you in said new car during their slow season.

Makes perfect sense, thanks for the reply!

I was at a dealership today. As of right now there is no pull ahead program. Just ended. But the rep. said there probably will be one in December or January.

Make sure if you do take advantage of the program, you discontinue automatic bill pay if you have it in place.

How does it work if you are over mileage but under the full term mileage? I'll be at my limit before lease end. I have a 39 mo / 39K lease and will be at 39k miles by month 34 or 35.

If you are under your allotment at turn in, you are fine. This is another perk of the pull ahead assuming you are ahead of the allotment pace.

This is an important point as well.
