Pay the buyout value of your lease
If applicable to your situation, pay a Lease Refinance fee (contact us for details)
Complete new transaction paperwork for change of ownership (From BMW to you)

Vehicle Inspection & Returning Your Vehicle.
Approximately 75 days before your lease expires, you can expect a call from AutoVIN Canada, an independent inspection company, to arrange an appointment for a mandatory vehicle inspection. Important note: AutoVIN only calls once and if the call is missed, they will not reach out again. We would recommend you to book an appointment online at www.autovinlive.com or by phone at 1-800-268-6639. The inspection can be completed at a time and location which is convenient for you, like your home or office.
After AutoVIN Canada evaluates the condition of your BMW, a Vehicle Inspection Report will be available online usually within 48 hours of the physical inspection, outlining the condition of your vehicle. Please schedule a lease-end consultation with our Auto West Group Lease & Finance Specialist to review the vehicle’s condition. You will be required to pay for any damages not covered by the Excess Wear & Use Protection plan (if purchased). Additionally, you will receive the balance of the ICBC insurance after your vehicle is dropped off and all outstanding payments made. To deposit, you will have to reach out to Allwest Insurance to have it endorsed. The cheque does not arrive endorsed.
