It would be misleading for me to definitively state that in all cases BMW FS would have no right to withold a portion of the MSDs. Generally speaking, if you make all of your monthly payments at the end of the lease you would get all of the MSDs back unless you asked them to net an end-of-lease charges or the disposition fee (if applicable) against it. I would call BMW FS customer service and ask them how it works in your state.
Fair enough. I should call BMW FS.
Last dumb question: Can I expect GAP insurance to be automatically included in my BMW FS lease, or do I need to request that?
