Working on this car with the sales guy. He said 3k down $409 a month for a lease. I pretty much told him.. No 1k down under $400 a month. Waiting for his callback. Might go to another BMW dealer today and have them fight for my business. What do you guys think.

I feel like 3K is so little to put down. It's not even 10%. You said you're using it for Uber though? Are you just going for the brand recognition or?
I'd also *really* investigate the Uber climate in your area before making a long term investment. It's distressingly common for cities to ban the service for an indefinite amount of time.0

Nice car man! A couple thoughts:
1. I personally don't think leasing is a great option, at least until you're at a place in life where you can get a second, third, fourth car for yourself. It's just good to own things, leasing has tons of fees and high insurance associated with it.
2. I was about to buy a BMW myself, similar to this one, but I went with a Hybrid instead. Which has tons of benefits, high MPGs, retains value super well, etc. I don't like German cars, I think there are lots of reliability issues. But that's just me bro!
It's a really nice car, and I know how So Cal is about their cars lol gotta get the nice whip to rock at life. So seems like you really like the car, so if my thoughts don't sway you at all, go for it!4
