It’s hard not to be enticed by the winning blend of luxury, performance, and technology available in our BMW models. But if you’ve been crunching the numbers and wondering if you can fit one into your budget, the question of buying versus leasing has probably occurred to you. Depending on what kind of driver you are, your needs, and your habits, we can give you insight into which would be the best fit.

The video above from Consumer Reports starts by laying out five different kinds of car shoppers: the road warrior, the freshman, the early adopter, the penny-saver, and the practical shopper. They then go on to lay out which option is the best for which type. Yet while this works broadly, BMW shoppers often approach their purchases with more passion, and their choice ultimately comes down to cost of ownership. So where a driver leasing a BMW will pay less due to only being responsible for residual value, the pride of owning the Ultimate Driving Machine is sometimes worth the higher premiums!

Take a look at the video above for more insight, and remember, our BMW dealership in Visalia, CA is here to help. Reach out to a sales representative or finance center to learn more about your options or our models.
