My younger brother the successful entrepreneur called me 3 weeks ago to tell me on his cell phone that, after signing a lease a month earlier, he had to return his 2009 BMW, a white M3 with tan leather, because BMW headquarters called him demanding MORE money. I said I never heard of such a thing and my brother said that in the contract's fine print BMW has the right to request more money. So my brother returned it with 8,000 miles on the odometer.
The story takes another twist. A few weeks after making him return the car, BMW called my brother and begged him to come back and lease the car again, but this time for LESS MONEY THAN HIS ORIGINAL LEASE. My brother surmises that a weak economy and 8,000 miles on a "new" car aren't helping it sell. My brother wants to lease the car, but I'm sure he'll make BMW sweat for a while.
