Welcome to the BMW lease-end process

Your BMW lease will end shortly but the experience doesn't have to. Now's the time to relieve that excitement by getting behind the wheel of your next BMW.

You have enjoyed your BMW, but now it's time to give it back. But not all BMWs are retuned at lease-end or showroom condition. This site will offer you useful information to help you understand the lease-end process segmented by category:

  • Introduction
  • Wheel Inspection
  • Doors, Dings, Dents
  • Interior/Aftermarket
  • Scheduled Maintenance
  • Windshield, Bumper and Lights
  • Tires and Wheels
  • Final Steps

To assist you, 90 days prior to your lease maturity date, you will receive a mailing form us which includes a Ding-o-meter. It measures dings, dents and tire treads, helping you predict any potential lease-end charges.

Dings less than 2 inches long are considered normal wear and tear. No charge will be issued for such wear and tear, but please consult your local BMW center to ensure this. We highly recommend a scheduling a pre-inspection with your local Kendall BMW of Bend Dealership.
