You make a good point regarding how it might be driven lease versus buy. If it is CPO, that will alleviate some concern for a few years. However, say I can get one for 50% off original MSRP, or less, after lease, I see no way how even the most horribly maintained and/or hard-driven M6 will cost $60K+ in repairs over, say, even 5 years of ownership. I am a crazy kind of guy!
