Your Three End-of-Lease Options

As the lease on your current BMW is scheduled to mature, it's time to start thinking about what you intend to do with your vehicle. This following information will help walk you through the process and present you with your available options. It will also answer many of the questions you may have about the lease return process.

Option 1 - Get into a new BMW

Step 1 - Contact BMW of Vista

If you're interested in a particular vehicle, this is the ideal time to take it for a test drive to ensure it's the right BMW for you. With a comprehensive suite of leasing and financing products, BMW of Vista makes getting into a new BMW easy.

Step 2 – Evaluate your current BMW
Any damage to your vehicle that is deemed to be excess wear and use is chargeable. If you wish, you can visit BMW of Vista for a pre-inspection, 90–120 days before the end of your lease. BMW of Vista will review your vehicle’s condition and provide an estimate of any charges. Please contact us to schedule an appointment.

The final inspection of your vehicle will take place roughly 60 days before the expiration of your lease. An independent inspection company will contact you to arrange an appointment at your convenience, where they will evaluate the condition of your BMW and ensure that you receive a fair and impartial assessment.

Step 3 – If necessary, repair your current BMW
If there is any excess wear and use present, you will receive an estimated cost for repair shortly after your vehicle inspection. To ensure that the repairs are acceptable, we recommend having them completed at BMW of Vista. You will be required to forward your repair receipts to BMW Financial Services to ensure that your maturity billing is updated accordingly. Or, if more convenient, you can choose to return your vehicle as is and pay any outstanding charges at that time.

Option 2 – Keep your current BMW

For you, the best way to celebrate the end of your BMW lease might just be to keep the very vehicle you’ve come to love and trust. If so, you have three options to consider. You may purchase your vehicle outright for the purchase option price or finance the amount remaining with BMW Financial Services. Both choices absolve you of any excess wear and use and excess mile charges and allow you the freedom to customize your vehicle precisely to your liking. Your third option is to re-lease your current BMW. Contact BMW of Vista, and you’ll find more purchase, financing, and leasing options than you could have imagined. We’ll make it as easy as possible for you to own or re-lease the BMW you have now, and be able to upgrade to another BMW in the future.

BMW Lease Return Process and Timeline

End-of-lease Call

Approximately 120 days before your lease matures, BMW of Vista will call to remind you that your lease maturity date is approaching. This is a good time to come into BMW of Vista for a pre-inspection and let us know if you are planning to keep your current BMW or looking to get a new one.

Inspection Call

Approximately 75 days before your lease expires, an independent inspection company will contact you to arrange an appointment, at your convenience, for a brief but mandatory vehicle inspection.

Vehicle Inspection

At this time, the independent inspection company will evaluate the condition of your BMW. Upon completion of the inspection, a Vehicle Inspection Report will be sent to you, upon request, outlining required repairs or associated costs for excess wear and use, if any. Should your vehicle require service or repair, you have the option of either having the work completed prior to vehicle return and submitting receipts to BMW Financial Services or paying the charges outlined in the report at vehicle turn-in. To ensure the repairs are acceptable, we recommend having them completed at BMW of Vista.

Returning Your Vehicle

If you are returning your BMW, it must be brought in to BMW of Vista on or before the lease maturity date. Please give us a call and schedule an appointment in advance. We will review the condition of your vehicle and confirm that all necessary repairs have been made. Both you and BMW of Vista will then sign a Vehicle Return Confirmation form to validate that the turn-in process has been completed.
