Lease Return Steps

  1. Schedule A Pre-Inspection: BMW Financial Services will contact you when it is time to plan your pre-inspection. However, if you’d like to schedule a complimentary pre-inspection on your own, you can contact your preferred BMW Center or visit My BMW. You can also view our inspection guidelines below to have a better idea of what we’re looking for.
  2. Review The Results: Sign in to My BMW and access your Vehicle Return Estimate. You’ll find a clear and concise summary of estimated charges including recommended repairs, estimates of remaining payments, and more.
    If you’ve really enjoyed driving your BMW, you may find that you’ve exceeded your contractual mileage. BMW Financial Services offers a Mileage Adjustment Program* that allows you to purchase additional miles at a discounted rate prior to returning your BMW.
  3. Make Repairs: If your BMW needs some work done, we recommend visiting the experts at your local BMW Center. You can rest assured that all work will be done to the highest standard and using only original BMW parts. This can help avoid unexpected delays or additional charges resulting from the use of unapproved parts.
  4. Return Your Lease: It’s hard to say goodbye, but we know you’ll want to get into your next BMW as soon as possible. Contact your preferred BMW Center to schedule your final inspection and vehicle return. During your appointment, you’ll also sign a Federal Odometer Statement serving as confirmation of your vehicle return.
    If you’ve taken advantage of the complimentary pre-inspection and made the necessary repairs, you’ll be on your way in no time. If not, don’t worry – everything will be covered during this appointment.
  5. Review Your Statement: You can view any balance due or refund in process by accessing a copy of your Vehicle Return Statement by signing in to My BMW shortly after you’ve returned your vehicle. A copy will also be mailed approximately two to three weeks after your vehicle is returned.

Lease Return FAQs

You have three options available at the end of your vehicle term: choose a new BMW; purchase your current BMW; return your BMW. Please contact your originating BMW Center for more information on the option that is best for you.

Approximately 90 days from the end of your vehicle term, you will receive a Lease End Mailer. The mailer will outline your options as well as provide an inspection wheel. The inspection wheel can be used to determine any potential excess wear and tear. You should also expect to receive phone calls from both BMW Financial Services and your BMW Center as you approach the end of your lease.

When your vehicle term ends, please contact your originating BMW Center to schedule a return appointment. Please note that the only BMW Center required to accept the return of your vehicle is the BMW Center where the contract originated. However, you may return the vehicle to a different BMW Center as long as that center is willing to accept receipt of your vehicle. If you are planning to return the vehicle to a different BMW Center, we recommend contacting them directly to see if they are willing to accept the return and discuss the details of their turn-in process.

Yes, please contact your originating BMW Center regarding the vehicle inspection process. Please note: You may be required to complete an inspection through our third-party inspection company based on your originating BMW Center. Should you have any additional questions regarding the inspection, please contact a representative at (800) 959-4269, Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET and Friday 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET.

When you return your BMW, the BMW Center will only be looking for items that came with the vehicle. You will be expected to return all keys, manuals, and accessories that the vehicle originally came with. If you had your excess wear and tear items repaired, you can give the coordinator a copy of the paid receipts. You will not have to bring any other paperwork with you.

Most BMW Centers are able to perform pre-inspections. Contact a coordinator at your local authorized BMW Center for more information. Should you have any additional questions regarding the pre-inspection, please contact a representative at (800) 959-4269, Monday through Thursday, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET and Friday 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET.

You may have repairs completed at any authorized BMW Center prior to the return of your vehicle. If your vehicle was pre-inspected at a BMW Center, they will conduct a final inspection at the time of return. If your vehicle was inspected by our third-party inspection company, to have charges removed, you must send a copy of the itemized receipt showing the repair work completed and paid in full. Receipts can be uploaded to My Account by selecting the "Upload Repair Receipts" link on the Vehicle Return Estimate or My Account Dashboard.

If you replace the tires, charges will be assessed for each tire that is not of equal size, quality, and speed rating as your original tires. (You can find the speed rating label on the inside of the vehicle’s door jam.) Also, acceptable wear is a minimum of 4/32 of an inch of depth from the finish tread.

Please contact your local BMW Center or contact your Department of Motor Vehicles for your state's official license plate policy. Your Department of Motor Vehicles requires that you or your BMW Center return the plates to the Department of Motor Vehicles or local state agency and notify them to cancel the registration at the end of your term.
