Any tips/advise on end of lease inspection? Should I have my insurance (USAA) replace my windshield?
Lease excess wear and tear is a waste of money IMHO, but since you already paid for it, just turn the car in and see what they say. By the way, you can have them inspect it ahead of time to see what damages you could be liable for if any.

Looking back at my lease agreement how do I calculate the rent charge? (should have paid closer attention)

Also, I got a rebate from USAA for $1k and yet they only gave me $930 for cap cost reduction. Why didn’t the I get the full amount?

Apologies for the lengthy post. I appreciate any tips/advice/feedback
Learn how to calculate your lease payment.

Isn't your USAA rebate supposed to be applied by you? I've never done it, but the BMWCCA rebate is applied for by the buyer, not the dealership.
