    double tire blow out last night

    Hit a pot hole and blew out the R/front and R/rear tires. Rims look fine.
    This makes 3 tire damaged by road hazard for the season and I am officially ahead on the $700 tire and rim insurance!

    No, 20 mph, the good news is I was 3 miles from home on a local street in front of a strip mall parking lot.
    All is back to normal, went to the dealer and took a loaner and got two new tires covered under insurance!!!! $1,600 on the covered invoice after mounting, balance and alignment.

    It goes back in 12 months, 03/10. It will have about 42,000 miles at that time.
    I have considered buying it out, but doubt I will. Itís a great car and would love to own it, but leasing works the best for my every day driver.
    I think the buy out is in the high 40s low 50s, but thatís meaningless right now.
    I have several friends that have done a quick turn into to dealer at end of lease than buy back as a CPO for allot less than the buyout on their lease. One friend had a 2006 530 with 8k miles and a lease buyout of 34K, he is buying it back from the dealer as a CPO for 26k.
    Either way you have first option on this great car.
