I drove the vehicle around 20,618 miles
1 Unscheduled :dillerman: service visit for the rocks in heatshield issue
Car was other than that quite reliable, without any major hick ups.

Here is some :math: in case anyone is curious.
I averaged 20.8MPG over it's entire stay with me and 71 fill ups.
Tires are projected to last around 25k miles... out of which I used up 15.
Other than the consumables, (plugs, tires) this car is pretty "ok" in terms of ownership costs.... but if you don't wrench yourself it is frankly insane.
$1500 in tires every 25k, $3000 in services every 30k, so 30k miles in this vehicle cost AT LEAST $4500 in maintenance at the :dillerman: If you DIY you can get that down to $2000, still not cheap but more palatable for sure.

If I was to get another one, i would for sure get the 18" wheels, the 20s are :fullretard: in tire costs, ride quality and general upkeep.



Once I was dropping off at the :dillerman: the dude that did my lease check got a little AZN helper woman to help him put the car in the back, she saw the car... started grinning ear to ear and jumping up and down because she got so excited at the opportunity to pull it in the back.

:( that hurt to see... I will miss that car.

They are 255 vs 265 up front and 275 vs 285 out back. So honestly marginally more narrow but not by much

Gotcha was gonna say wide 18s aren't that cheap either. I bought on the cheaper end and they were still $250/pc

Look at the Firehawk Indy 500’s for a good summer tire that’s 80% of a Michelin PSS/4S for 50% of the cost

Using this setup I have plugged 2 tires so far on the side of the road in my Z06 and 1LE, and one in my garage with the 911, all while the wheel is left on the car and the car is on the ground.

And it’s a final wrap. I got charged $350 to terminate the lease so I’ll be getting $5600-$350 back from BMW.

In case those who are curious. :math:

I paid $700 for maintenance $1350 for tires. ~2050 on top of $13,500 for lease payments for 18 months. On top of $700 in car registration.

This car cost me 90 cents a mile in ownershit + 18 cents a mile in fuel. + 10 cents in insurance. A pretty staggering $1.20 a mile all in....
