Thats not how it works. You are responsible for full lease regardless, even if the car is totaled. This is where your insurance steps in, it is very important to have good coverage that includes gap...

In my X6M the 8 speed auto immitates DCT behavior. It doesn't roll when you put the car in drive or reverse without giving it some gas, and it doesn't have a park position - I have to pull the...

Don't forget that when leasing you are also only paying a portion of sales tax from the total cost of lease, not full vehicle value. When buying you're paying sales tax on full vehicle value.

They are phasing out DCTs because of AWD. X6M and X5M are already 8 speed autos that act similar to DCT.

I just hope they don't phase out RWD from their smaller 2/4 series models.

How NYC has changed. I remember when I came here in 1993 most cars were basically old heaps of compressed rust. Now its brand new Lexii, BMW and Mercs.
