Lease-End Guide and Options
The Road Ahead

If you are currently leasing through BMW Financial Services, you may have questions about what to expect at the end of your lease. This guide provides you with an explanation of lease-end options, the procedures to follow at vehicle turn-in, and examples of what we consider "acceptable wear and use."

With 6 months to go before your current lease ends, you have several exciting choices in front of you.

The three routes represent your three choices. The route you travel next depends entirely upon what you plan on doing with your current BMW. Review the choices that you have ahead and pick the option that's best for you.

Your Lease End Options and Financing:

1.  Route 1 - Select your next BMW

Weatherford BMW can assist you with ordering your next BMW from the factory or you can pick your favorite new or pre-owned BMW from our in stock inventory.

We can help arrange financing or lease options for any of these scenarios.

Important Note:

If you choose to lease or finance a custom-ordered BMW, we will be happy to extend the lease on your current vehicle up to six months until your new BMW arrives. Keep in mind that if your next vehicle is a BMW leased or purchased through BMW Financial Services the end-of-lease disposition fee on your current vehicle and the security deposit on your new vehicle is waived.


2.  Route 2 - Keeping your current BMW

If you love your BMW that you have been leasing and would like to keep it we can help step you through this process.

There are a couple of choices when you want to buy your car that you have been leasing. You can choose to have the car put through the BMW Certification process where the car will have a 100,000 mile warranty or you can choose to just purchase it as is. Depending on those choices there are also different finance offers available through BMWFS. We would be happy to make sure that you understand all options available to you.

3.  Route 3 - Return your BMW

If you decide that you no longer need your BMW, please notify BMW Financial Services and then come see us to have the vehicle inspected and turned in.
You can view the Turn In Check List below for more information on the inspection.

Turn In Check List
  •     As you prepare to return your vehicle to your BMW Center, please use this checklist to ensure your vehicle turn-in experience runs smoothly.
  •     Make sure the Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) remains in your glove-box after your vehicle's inspection.
  •     Make a turn-in appointment with Weatherford BMW.
  •     Bring your receipts for any repaired items to Weatherford BMW at the time of turn-in.
  •     Have Weatherford BMW review your VIR and note any repairs completed.
  •     Have Weatherford BMW record your mileage and record it on the VIR.
  •     Make sure both you and Weatherford BMW representative sign the VIR. THIS IS YOUR TURN-IN RECEIPT
  •     Certain states require license plate return at lease end. Check with the DMV for your state or refer to the Lease-End Brochure to see if this requirement applies to you.
  •     Call BMW Financial Services at 1-800-959-4269 and press #4 to confirm turn-in of vehicle.
It is important that you turn in both sets of keys, service records, Owner's Manual, tool kit and spare tire with your vehicle.
Please don't "Turn In and Run"!  If you do not get a signed VIR as your receipt or if you choose not to get your BMW inspected by our independent agency prior to turn-in, you are responsible for any damages or excess mileage identified by BMW Financial Services after you drop off the vehicle.
