"I should agree that leasing is superior to purchasing. This way I can come cry along on this MB EVERY WEEK on how bad I'm being treated as a leasee."
Poor attempt to prove a point through blatant exageration.

Aren't you the same JoeZaf that posted 'end of era" last week?

On your points:
"...I understand that. Until you purchase the car, BMW owns it. It's that simple."
-Your point being. Mine was that while BMW may be actual title holder, my option contract (for lack of a better term), gives me exclusive rights to purchase the car at a preagreed upon price which BMW cannot prevent. SO, for all practical purposes, the fact that BMW owns title is of no significance.

Ah, one significance. You can't sell it until you own it and pay the sales tax for it. That was my point. You agreed to sell a car to a buyer before you actually owned the car.

Thanks for your wisdom. I don't know how I acquired my last EIGHT BMW's without you

Aha, now I understand why you can't afford to buy one.

Hey, let's just agree to disagree on the merits of leasing.
