Another way to get a good deal on a BMW i3, is shopping for a lease return. If you can locate a licensed auto-broker or small car dealer in your area who will work with you, they will be able to "shop" the dealer auctions for you. Twice a month, BMW sends lease-return BMWs to the large regional dealer auction lots to be sold - and any licensed dealer, not just BMW dealers, can bid on the cars. We found a broker in the Dallas area, put down a deposit with him, told him exactly what we wanted - year, color, options, etc. He went to two auctions for us, found one at the first auction that was what we wanted, but had some minor body/paint issues, the second auction - he came up with the exact car we were looking for, 2015 Rex, white, Tera world, all the available options, and only 9,600 miles on the clock. Sent us an iPhone video walk-around of the car, we checked the online maintenance records for the car which showed just normal local maintenance, no "issues" being dealt with, so we gave him the go-ahead to bid on it for us. Got it basically at dealer wholesale, and the car looks and drives like it just came out of the showroom last week.
