Applying for BMW credit directly or through dealership?

So I am going to pickup my lease this weekend and the dealership asked me to apply for the credit through their website. When I went there I noticed that is is through their parent company, AutoNation. I then saw that I could apply directly through BMW finance on BMW’s website. Is there a difference, or am I overthinking this?

Apply thru bmwusa website then pick your dealer
