If you can get the same deals as the leasing companies, and cut out the middle man, can save a few dollars.

Every case is different. My brother hacked a deal on an Alfa Romeo and approached a broker to see if he wanted the same deal. The broker planned on charging an extra $50 a month over the price that the dealer is charging. That is a total of $1800!

That is a very general statement to make. People that are good at it are saving themselves thousands of dollars over the course of a lease.

I have to make sure I can share his contact info ( or you can PM me) but this is what this guy does, he is pretty much a car leasing agent.
Charges a flat fee and gets the you best deal possible.

Not easy to find, I spent time trying. But I am planning on using a $1500 or $3000 from a class action suit, I have a 750iM that was part of the class action. They offered $1500 of purchase or lease of 3,4,5 series or $3000 off for 7 series.

I cant understand how it can be that cheap though. You can barely find a Sentra for that price.
Also, I'm assuming Insurance will be much higher considering its a luxury car

I think it makes alot of sense, here is why.

It was a 2018 model that the dealers were desparate to get off there lot since the 2018 BMW lease program was ending end of april.

Happens to be it was a loaner too which gave extra incentive to discount the vehicle  .

All you had to do was find a dealer with that combo that would take your offer (in this case %21 off Sticker price ) and then
Stack that with lease cash that was available regardless + graduate student discount +loyalty discount +OL = very cheap lease.

In other words if the numbers work out and the timing is good and you know to negotiate with the dealer then it's very doable.
