2002 540iA Sport/43500 miles/3yr-45000mile lease ends 24 December 2004.
I would like to purchase this car and need advice on the best method.
(a)pay the residual, $32,000+tax, and only maintain the remaining BMW warranty of 4yr/48000mi.
(b)pay the residual and purchase a warranty for a 3rd party vendor like WarrantyDirect.
©turn in the car to the dealer, have it become a Certified Preowned BMW and then by it back. I am told I would pay for whatever the necesary repairs would be and I would have the BMW backed CPO warranty which is 3yr/100,000mi.
Thanks in advance.

Well here was my deal on the aforementioned 2002 540iA.* I assumed ownership yesterday.
The dealer inspected the vehicle and found no issues or concerns.* He then stated I could purchase the car for the residual + $350 diposition fee + $1300.00 CPO fee.* I countered with the residual fee - $1300 CPO and reminded him that the disposition fee at the end of the lease was for the cost of reselling the vehicle which was not an issue since I was a ready buyer.* He took it and I got the car for $1300 less than the residual fee.* This amount is well below the current Kelly BB value and I have the CPO warranty.* I feel this was a win-win deal and am comfortable with it.
Thanks for the advise from all.
