BMW Lease Assumption/Transfer Not available due to COVID-19 - NOW Resumed 4/20/20


I tried to initiate lease assumption process to transfer my 19 X3m40i.
I called BMWFS today and found out they stopped taking all new lease transfer application as of 3/24.
Its tentative till 4/13 and they will decide what to do after that date close to 4/13.
Thought I’d share this info with the community for those of you looking to take get out of/take over lease.

4/20/20 Update:
Just got off the phone with BMWFS

I hope this is a good new for lot of forum members and just wanted to share with yall!
