Yeah, they are dogging on the RICERS with their modded civics and not the typical civic drivers.

Anyone who leases any car is wasting their money. BMW should use super unleaded anyone using regular gas they should take the car back and drive something they can afford ;-)

I own my car but maybe for a person who will buy a car and never be able to pay it off, it is more practical to lease. After all, why invest more than $20,000 on something that loses its value as drastically as a car?

Actually, it's possible to lease a BMW for six years total (new lease after 3rd year) and still pay less than if you bought the first BMW new.

Leasing or making monthly payment on a car that loses its value as soon as you leave the lot is a waste of money. Watch Dave Ramsey

Yes. But there is never any free money.

After 6 years the one person has nothing and the other has something they can keep driving, sell etc.

Most BMW leases I've seen have monthly payments that are about HALF of what the 60month loan payment would be.

I'm not dogging on leases, BMW's, owning cars etc etc....just explaining BMW's lease \ marketing strategy and my opinion on that is that they are causing long-term brand devaluation as they are lenting a lot of low-rent posers and d-bags give their brand the equivalent of an STD.

Its a very good marketing strategy by BMW. No matter what negative opinion about them, they still maintain a large loyal crowd to their products. Almost similar to apple. I just parked at work today, and almost half of the cars lined up are BMW's

I've long dogged the people who drive BMWs as a joke...like boxus said, redneck jokes, blonde jokes, my car is a status symbol joke....

I had an acquaintance who had a 3 series BMW and he was most certainly a wanna be elitist snob. But, he went on vacation for a week one time and since my car was dead, he let me drive his.

BMWs are very good cars. Some of the smoothest driving I've ever done. I really liked how it handled.

Nonetheless, I'll still poke fun at BMW drivers because it's just in good fun. And there is a bit of truth to the stereotype. Yes, BMW makes great cars. Yes, some people recognize the car for its quality. And yes, there are some people who drive them simply because they think it makes them look more important and better than you.

I don't care what kind of car you drive, just KNOW HOW TO DRIVE PROPERLY!
