I absolutely understand and respect the right of someone wanting to buy a car rather than lease. For some a car is only worth it's utility value, for others it's potentially worth more.

That said, BMW appears to be more interested in the leasing model for customers. Sure, they'll sell you a car, but it seems they'd rather lease you one.
The proof of my claim is my above example.
