WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. – BMW Financial Services has added another product to its list of F&I protection programs with the introduction of its BMW Lease Protection program.

  • Dents and dings
  • Tires
  • Wheels
  • Upholstery, rips, tears
  • Glass
  • Headlamps (including Xenon), fog lamps, tail-lamp assemblies
  • Bumpers, step bumpers, surrounding trim
