Guys, need help here, I have been searching a lot of forums and places but could not find a good answer for my question:
I am planning to lease a BMW in California, while I am living in Michigan. My intention is to fly there and drive the car back. But the dealer who has the best deal so far told me I must register the vehicle in California in order to drive it back. Then next month I can transfer it to MI with BMWFS.
Is this just some BS?
Is the BMW dealer in CA able to register the vehicle in MI so I can drive it home?
Or give me a temporary plate so I can drive home to register by myself?
Disclaimer 1: I am not considering shipping.
Disclaimer 2: I don’t mind driving 2000 miles because I am certain I won’t use up my lease miles.
Disclaimer 3: CA’s deal is so good that a plane ticket and driving it back is not a problem at all. In fact I would want this trip to enjoy the car.
