The Road Ahead

If you are currently leasing through BMW Financial Services, you may have questions about what to expect at the end of your lease.  This guide provides you with an explanation of lease-end options,the procedures to follow at vehicle turn-in, and examples of what we consider "acceptable wear and use."

With three months to go before your current lease ends, you have several exciting choices in front of you.

The three routes represent your three choices.  The route you travel next depends entirely upon what you plan on doing with your current BMW.  Review the choices that you have ahead  and pick the option that's best for you.

Should you have any questions, please call BMW of Bridgewater at (888) 928-1548.

    Option 1: Select your next BMW

Important Note:
If you choose to lease or finance a custom-ordered BMW, we will be happy to extend the lease on your current vehicle up to six months until your new BMW arrives. (Not available to OwnersChoice customers.) Keep in mind that if your next vehicle is a BMW leased or purchased through BMW Financial Services the end-of-lease disposition fee on your current vehicle and the security deposit on your new vehicle is waived.

If you decide on Option 2 - Keeping your current BMW
