Maybe I'm confused but didn't you just defend leasing over buying in your 'end of an era' posting a week ago?
Now you are trying to buy a car you initially leased. Not because you want to keep it, but because you want to resell it. Did you terminate the lease early? Why not just turn it? Are you doing this to capitalize on a higher than expected residual value?
Now I'm completely f*cked.
This was obviously a clerical error, these happen all the time. Most leased vehicles are turned back in. I think your transaction with them is more of an exception and therefore more prone to error. If you are going to run your own car dealership, get used to it.
I love BMWFS, not only do they $crew you on their leases, but they give your cars away too.
Remember, you leased it. The car is their's, not yours. As for your buyer, did they know that you were selling them a car you didn't own? I hope you didn't make them give you a deposit.
Don't take this personally, but I just can't sympathize with you on this. I think you had a hand in making this bed.
