Deciding Whether to Buy or Lease Your New BMW from Advantage BMW Clear Lake

Congratulations on your decision to join the Advantage BMW Clear Lake team. Soon you’ll be behind the wheel of one of the world’s leading automotive machines, but there are a couple of questions to consider. Do you purchase or lease your new BMW? Many of our customers have wondered the same thing and we want to help you make the perfect choice.

Buying and Leasing are two entirely unique approaches to obtaining your new Advantage BMW, and you should be analyzing a multitude of factors before making your choice.

The Vehicle Is Yours – When you pay off the automotive loan, you can keep your ride indefinitely New Vehicles Every Few Years – When the lease agreement is complete you can get a new vehicle without the trade-in hassles
No Mileage Limitations – You can put as many miles on your vehicle as you wish Mileage Limits – You will be limited to how many miles you can travel each year
Vehicle Maintenance Responsibility – If your vehicle needs service, the cost for maintaining and service it is on you Vehicle Maintenance is Covered – In most lease agreements, the vehicle’s maintenance and service is on us
Need A New Ride? – You’ll have to sell or trade-in your old one and buy a new one Time For A New BMW? – When your lease is up, you can get a new vehicle the same day, hassle-free


How long do you typically hold on to a vehicle?

Think about this question in terms of years. Is the range usually 1-3 years? 4-5 years? 6 or more years? Look at your ownership history and consider your next step regarding changes in finances and your personal situation before moving forward.  Some vehicles are pleasure weekend cruisers; others you may use to pick the kids up from school or commute to work, and so on. These functional options tend to rack up the most miles. Think about where your new Advantage BMW fits in the big picture.


How many miles a year do you usually rack up?

By estimation, how many miles a year do you typically drive?

  • Less than 15,000
  • 16-30,000
  • More than 30,000

Think about how you’ll be utilizing your vehicle in the future – will your commute be the same in five years as it is now? Throughout our lives, where, when and how we drive is constantly evolving. Families grow and change, or we may even be adding additional drivers to the registration. All of this must be taken into consideration when deciding between leasing or buying your Advantage BMW, so take stock before you execute your plan.


In general, which method do you use when upgrading to a new car?

  • Trade in my existing vehicle for a new one.
  • Sell my existing vehicle before I buy a new one.
  • Keep my vehicle once I have paid it off.

Financially speaking, we all have different preferences and reasons for updating our vehicles. Are you leaning more towards frequently advancing to the latest model, or are you more into building your own automobile collection? Perhaps you have a family member ready to take the wheel and they need their first car. Indeed, you may have even grown fond of your current vehicle and have the financial means to add to your automotive family. Whatever your situation, plan accordingly.


How did you acquire your existing vehicle?

  • Lease
  • Finance
  • Cash

If you aren’t entirely happy with how your current payment method or plan worked out, maybe it’s time to make a change. On the other hand, you may be perfectly happy with how things have been going. Make this analysis before completing your BMW lease deal.


When you bring your new BMW home, what changes might you make?

Whether you’ve just signed up for the classic 3 series, or selected the new Sports Activity Coupe X6, think about ways you may plan to physically alter your vehicle. If you’ve decided to lease your Advantage BMW, it will most likely need to remain in factory condition. One reason you may want to elect to buy is that you plan to make slight modifications or even completely customize your vehicle. If you choose to do this, you may violate the terms of your lease agreement. Speak with your dealer to ensure that you know exactly what you’re signing up for.


How important is maintaining your vehicle’s warranty?

If you have owned vehicles in the past or currently have a vehicle warranty, do you typically:

  • Replace your vehicle before its factory warranty expires.
  • Have a full inspection done on your vehicle before its factory warranty expires.
  • Ignore if your car is under warranty or not.  

How you handle your warranty and its restrictions can greatly affect the re-sale or trade-in value, and even if you qualify for new leases.


How do you plan to service your vehicle?

Your BMW is a finely-tuned machine, and ideally you will be able to frequent an authorized manufacturer or dealer service center. Depending on the terms of your lease, if your vehicle is worked on by anyone other than an ASE Certified BMW technician, you may be voiding your contract. Whether you perform the maintenance yourself or take it into your local service center, when leasing you must review the terms carefully to confirm any allowances. Ensuring that you adhere to the stipulations of that contract dictates if you can continue to lease, or if you might consider becoming a full-on buyer.


Take a moment to look at our BMW Finance page to answer any further questions you may have regarding the specifics of your choice. Make sure you consider each option carefully.


So, shop us online or stop by our showroom and let our sales and leasing experts assist you in making an informed decision on whether to purchase or lease your new ultimate driving machine from Advantage BMW Clear Lake.

So grateful for, Van Mai! Van, was super professional, helpful, and informative. I was frustrated because I was bringing my car in yet again for the same nonsense that should have been addressed weeks/months ago. But Van kept his cool and empathized with my situation. He made sure me and my vehicle were both taken care; I really appreciated that! Oh and the fact that he kept me in the loop throughout the entire time my car was being taken care of was merely icing on the cake! Thank you, again, Van! 🙂

Bought a 2017 X5 well equipped at a competitive price vs other equivalent dealers. Alex was my sales consultant, he was friendly, attentive and professional... no pressure selling. The car was prepared for delivery nicely, did wait About an hour + to sit with the finance person, yet a friendly experience as well. Will definitely return to buy my X6
