(In theory you could also pick up a lease assumption on Swapalease to get you through the winter, but those tend to be fairly high mileage cars, you need to provide your own insurance, and there's a high probability you'll wind up paying for tires at lease end).
Or pay $800 to $1000 to ship your car. I
Am seeing a lot of cars with north plates coming down on car carriers

Good write-up but basically it's just like calling a cab(but a very nice one), or getting a nice rental.

I think this is BMW's sneaky way of testing the market acceptance for when we won't want to dump a lot of cash into an expensive vehicle that just sits in the garage for 10-15 hours each day. Especially handy for those who don't long distances and who might also consider E-vehicles constantly needing charging. I can see it coming.

If and when it becomes the norm, there won't be many driver enthusiasts left, just drone worker bees.

You can lease a fully loaded M5 Competition for about $1,400 dollars a month and drive the car everyday and everywhere you go. Mercedes, Porsche, and Volvo have the similar plans. There is a lot of money here, but people are smart, do the math, and competitions with other other automakers is very high. BMW has to do better and live up to their slogan, "Ultimate Driving Machine ". They need to be the Ultimate program provider. If thos is thier start in a plot status to see how people respond, well, they have failed.
Wow, fully loaded M5 Competition for $1400 / month. That's gotta be 5k miles / year or something. If not please share more details (dealership, terms etc.) because it's unheard of.
