Deciding Whether to Buy or Lease Your New BMW from Advantage BMW Midtown

Congratulations on your decision to join the Advantage BMW Midtown family. We know you’ve put a lot of work into researching and choosing the perfect Advantage BMW for you. However, there are a couple of questions to consider before you sign on the dotted line. Specifically, do you purchase or lease your new Advantage BMW?

This is a common question among our customers and we want to help you make an informed decision. After all, buying and leasing are two entirely different ways to acquire your new Advantage BMW. The answers to these questions really comes down to your personal automotive preferences. With that in mind, here are just a few of the main differences between leasing and buying your Advantage BMW:


Once it’s paid for, you keep your car for as long as you want. Once the lease agreement is complete, you turn the car back into the dealership.
There are no mileage limits on a car you own. You will be limited to a set amount of annual mileage
When you are ready for a new car, you are responsible for selling or trading in your old one. When the lease is up, you can lease a new BMW the same day.
Maintenance and service of your car is your responsibility. Routine service and most repairs are covered in the lease agreement.


As we noted, there are some questions you need to ask yourself when researching the benefits between leasing and buying your new Advantage BMW. For example:

  1.  How often do you replace your vehicles? 
    • If you like to keep your vehicles for more than 5 years, you’ll want to check out our financing offers.
    • If you like replacing your cars every 3 to 5 years, you should take a look at our leasing deals.
  2. What is your annual mileage on your vehicle?
    • If you put usually drive less than 15,000 to 20,000 miles a year, leasing might be your best option.
    • Do you typically put more than 15,000 miles on your car each year? Then we’d recommend financing your new Advantage BMW.
  3. What types of monthly payments do you have in mind?
    • Financing offers typically have a higher monthly payment depending on variables like down payment amount and credit ratings – however, once the loan is paid, the monthly payments are done.
    • Leasing offers usually have lower down payment and monthly payment requirements than financing. However, if you like renewing your leases, you’ll be looking at perpetual car payments for as long as you choose to lease your vehicles.
  4. Do you like customizing your car?
    • If you’re not into personalizing your vehicle, then you’ll want to take a look at our leasing offers.
    • But, if expressing yourself via auto-customization is a must, then we recommend buying your next Advantage BMW.
  5. What are your automotive maintenance priorities?
    • If you are a hands-on ‘grease monkey’-type, you’ll benefit more from financing your Advantage BMW.
    • If you prefer having ASE Certified BMW technicians service and maintain your car, you’ll definitely want a lease agreement that covers most of your automotive service needs.

As you can see, there are many factors to consider when deciding on leasing or buying your new Advantage BMW. Of course, our team of BMW experts are fully trained in both financing and leasing so the answer to all of your questions is just a phone call away. Or, simply stop by our showroom at 1305 Gray St. and talk with any of our sales associates.

Whichever you choose, we are confident you will get more than just your money’s worth from your Ultimate Driving Machine from Advantage BMW Midtown.

Bought a used Hyundai here. Found it on CarGurus. Car was super clean at a great price. A/C didn't work, so I asked if they could fix if we paid asking price. They agreed. Very easy process. Salesman Sergio was great to work with.

we live in Corpus Christi and having been dealing with our local BMW dealership for 15 years. I emailed Advantage for information on a new BMW and got a reply the next day. The gentlemen that helped me was Michael Marchan. I told Michael we lived in Corpus and would be comparing deals with them and our local dealership and his response was whatever I need to do to earn your business I will try to do. He was extremely helpful and was able to get the deal we wanted at the price we wanted. I am very pleased with Advantage BMW. We lease 2 BMW’s and I look forward to talking them again. I highly recommend Advantage BMW.

Great service. The staff was wonderful, very honest and friendly. I felt I could trust them and what they were telling me. Jerry Ward was the individual I worked with and he was great, he kept me posted on the process and kept his word on the time it would take to service my car. This was the first time bringing my car in, first service needed and it was a wonderful experience. Nice area to wait as well! I will always have my car serviced here.Thank you

I recently purchased a new X5. This is my third BMW and as expected, it is a great vehicle and highly recommend that if you like SUV's to check it out. When you purchase a BMW, you do so with the expectation that you will be treated not only with respect and professionalism that should come from any car you purchase but you want it to be over and above from other dealers after all, you are purchasing the ultimate driving vehicle, a BMW. You want and expect that ultimate customer care from the sales team to the service department. Let me tell you first hand that the staff at Advantage BMW Midtown go way beyond that ultimate care you were expecting. I checked out two other BMW dealerships before coming to Advantage Midtown and yes, the other BMW dealerships treated me great but when it came to putting pen to the paper, the other dealerships did not even come close to the deal I received. My sales person Hadji was great and did a great job in showing me various cars and models and highly recommend him. But I have to say that the Sales Manager Justin knocked it out of the park. He told me what he could do on my trade-in and what he could do on the new car price. No pressure just good honest talk about the car and telling me its a big financial decision so why not just take the car for a couple of days and see if I like it before deciding. So I did and came back and purchased it. The follow up and after care since buying the vehicle from Justin has been unbelievable. No other dealership or manager have given me the after care as what I received at Advantage Midtown BMW. Ultimate car with the Ultimate care. Thank you all.
